Recent guest reviews

High speed internet not working. Noisy air conditioning. Poor breakfast. Beds too hard. Although it was a non-smoking room, it had a very strong odor of cigarettes.

It was a good place for a bargain price.Close to large city, and shopping areas.

desk clerk extremely rude. We asked for a ground floor room {I've had a lung lobe removed) and was told they were booked up. Room stunk badly. Less than 1/3 of the motel was ocupied next am. Clerk very argumentative. Recommend this place to no one.

I am a professional driver and spend most nights in my truck that is equipped with a sleeper. Because the air conditioning in my truck stopped working I needed a cool room in order to get a good night's rest. Unfortunately the room temperature of my room was well into the 90s when I entered and it took 3 hours of running the AC at full blast to get to a comfortable temp. Because of this I only got 5 hours of sleep.

We toured the Creation Museum the next day. When it coes to motels, there is no place that compares to home!

Recommended a good place closeby to eat.

Great Location for Magnolia Raceway. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Excellent value.

One word rip-off!!! I arrive i specified non-smoking room. I get my room key and arrive to my room and it was a smoker room. Smelled like cat urine and nitotine. The curtains were yellow and walls were yellow when they should have been white... I immediatly went to the office and asked for a non-smoking room. The attendent said we are currently booked and there are no other rooms available. There parking lot was empty and it was around 6pm. So I asked for my money back and they said it was not possiible. I gave the key back to the attendent and she offered me a non-smoking room but it will cost an additional $30 dollars. I went ahead and paid the additional $30 and arrived to a room that was infested with mold. They also didnt flush the toilet since the last use, so I was welcomed to a yellow toilet bowl water. BTW when I got home i check my stay on orbitz.com and the email said I did specifly a NON SMOKING ROOM!! Stay at your own risk... They sure saw me coming! BTW there are cheaper newer hotels 3 miles north of this location with a nicer enviroment.

Front desk was rude, one lady was a much older lady. She was getting all into my personal life as to why my address wasnt changed on my license, why I needed 2 room keys, and questioning everything else, all while holding a bowl of cereal and dripping it all over the front of her and talking with her mouth full of it.

The Econo Lodge worked out very well for our needs. We were going to a concert that was nearby, and for the price, it was much better than expected. I was pleased to have a fridge and microwave in the room.
