Clean but very basic. Good for a quick cheap overnight stay.

If you are just looking for cheap and don't care about clean, the Hotel is okay. I only stayed here as the other hotels in the area are full.

When we arrived, the desk clerk refused to honor our reservation and charged us again for the night. Do NOT stay here!!!!

Convenient location, pleasant staff. It's a good place to stay and a fair rage.

This econo lodge was very clean for the price. It was perfect for just one nights stay, and had great access back on to I-35. My only complaint is that the staff took a little while to check me in once I arrived. There also should be a dress code, as the lady checking me in was wearing a t-shirt and jeans. It would've been hard to know she was working there if she hadn't been behind the counter.

The location was key for us, however, the linens were threadbare. I could read a newspaper through the sheet. The staff were responsive and the young lady who checked us in went above and beyond my expectations when she remade our room keys for 2nights instead of the one night without my asking. (I would never have known until I could not get into the room!)

After a long day of coaching, the hotel provided a quiet nights rest. Bed was comfortable and room was pretty accurate to what hotel info said on internet.

Average. Room was clean, but bath was small. Complimentary breakfast below average.

The toilet did not work. We reported it to the management and they did not offer to fix it - only told us to pour a wastebasket full of water into the toilet to flush it. Very poor service! We had no choice but to stay in the room for the night.

Overall facilities and rooms are above average. Pillow top matresses are too soft for us. Family funeral was the trip purpose. They need to clearly identify Tornado shelter and local safety procedures.

For the money it was a decent place. Rooms were pretty good, and a decent free contentental breakfest. Its located in a good part of the city close to many things.
