This was a nice hotel. The staff was great. We arrived very late and the desk clerk was very busy. She handled it very well. The room (205) was newly remodeled and looks nice. This is an older property and they are doing a nice job with it. We skipped the breakfast so no info there. The fridge in our room not working was our only issue.

I am not one to complain about a room, but I wish I had been warned about this place. It seemed nice being up on a hill. It was late so I assumed we would wake up to a nice view. The first room was a smoking room and although I am a smoker I cannot stand the smell inside. The room felt dirty and the sink was dirty. After requesting a different room we were moved and this room was worse than the first. The smell was completely unbearable. It was an instant headache walking in. It smelled like either strong black mold or cat spray. We checked out. This is the first time in my life I have ever checked out of a hotel within 20 minutes of checking in.

We have been looking for a house and decided to give this hotel a try. We walked in and I didn't know anything at first until I walked to the bathroom. The bathtub was black, bathroom counter had stains all over it. The sheets looked like they haven't been washed. The night stand had dirt on it and the coffee maker still had a used coffee filter in it. I called the front desk and she sent the housekeeper up. When I asked the housekeeper about the tub being black, I was told it was probably stained. I did not take a shower! Don't stay here!!!

First of all the bed we had sagged on one side and my husband thought he was going to fall out of bed. He slept in the middle of the king size bed. He killed a spider in the sink. Otherwise the room was fine. Around midnight I heard yelling from the room next to us about drugs. I thought oh no is there going to be gun shots? I got scared. I would not stay here again.

The sheets were dirty & long hairs all over, hairs all over in the bathroom. The staff were friendly though, but slow. The breakfast was okay & had a waffle maker which was nice!! The deadbolt didn't lock the doors from the inside & only the chain lock on top kept the kids from leaving

I stopped here on my way home from Florida and am pleased. The clerk was very nice and gave me what appears to be a newer room where I could park my truck and horse trailer right outside the door. The bed is great and sheets are soft and clean. It has a nice large bathroom too which is very clean. I would have no problem staying here again!

We were returning from Florida and stayed at this Econo Lodge in Dalton. Were were greeted by a friendly clerk who was very helpful! Our room was clean and fresh. The breakfast had many choices and everything was hot and tasty. We had never stayed at an Econolodge before and was very impressed. The pillows were hard though so if your are planning a driving trip through the area,bring your own pillow.

I stay here at least three times a month, for two years now. My room is always clean, the towels are softer then mine at home, the staff is friendly and the price is reasonable. I can not judge the breakfast as I get a cup of coffee to go only. The hotel is close to the interstate but high on a hill so one does not get the highway noise.

I've been staying at this hotel twice a year for the last several years during a small Science fiction convention. The hotel has gone through some renovations over the years that I've been staying there. This year I noticed that the rooms have undergone some upgrades. My room had new paint, a new TV, and best of all, new towels. The towels were soft! Some rooms have had a fridge and microwave, coffee maker and hair dryer, but I'm not sure what their ongoing plans are. I didn't have these items this visit, but as I said, they seem to be in mid renovation. I really didn't really miss it though. Breakfast is the standard waffle iron and Danish offerings. The coffee is pretty good. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Bob, the owner, is good about remembering names of his repeat customers which is a nice touch. Some of the staff would dress up to match the theme of the convention, which I also found a nice addition to the weekend. When the convention first moved to this location, I wasn't sure how it would work out, but overall it has been a pleasant experience for me.

Last week we went on a trip from FL to MI and when we started to get tired around midnight THIS happened to be our stop of choice. It was bare bones but we only needed a bed to sleep in for 5 hours so it did the trick (Room 215). I had noticed a large stain on the side of the bed sheet but brushed it off, thinking that it was probably one of those stains that never came off in the wash. Breakfast was virtually nonexistent but again, for $54 a night I wasn't going to complain. Fast forward to precisely 1 week later. We came back from MI and realized that we'd be in the same area around midnight again and since we were already familiar with the hotel we called in for a room. The front desk lady was super friendly and said that she'd had the same exact room available again. Great - we thought. We got there at quarter after midnight and checked in to our room. I pulled back the decorative sheet and instantly notice that same exact stain on the white bed sheet. Weird! Coincidence? So I ripped off the entire blanket assembly to discover that the fitted sheet itself had never been changed after our last visit. There was still two long strands of my hair hidden under the pillow. This was just gross. So we asked for a different room and promptly were put into a room two or three doors down (Room 212). First thing I did was to rip off the blanket to inspect the sheets just to find bed bugs crawling all over he place. My advice? Run! Run for the hills! Sleep in your car if you must but skip this bug infested dump.
