Recent guest reviews

This is an inexpensive, nice, clean, older motel that provided a comfortable one night stay. I did not have the breakfast so I cannot comment on that.

Bit of screw up with reservation for smoke free room. Management shifted things around to accommodate us.

Hotel is old and could use a remodel. Ice maker was very old and ran out of ice quickly. Place on ceiling for smoke detector but none there (did not see another one on ceiling unless there was one on a wall I did not see). Hotel was value priced so I guess I got what I paid for. Staff was friendly.

The staff is friendly enough and accomodating. The structure/rooms are in need of updating and are in disrepair. The room entry doors have seen their better days, with large gaps at the bottom and visible interior damage, Apppears like door locks have been relocated or replaced more than once. The walls between rooms are not sound proof, could hear noise when other people came in, slaming of doors, talking loud and chatter at different times during the night. I felt like I should be sleeping with one eye open all night. For the price we paid, I would have expected better accommodations.

A little out of the way on a dead end street, but despite being an older hotel, it was perfectly clean. Good tv, and a nice pool. I thought it was a very good value for an overnight stay.

Was visiting family in area and was close and easy access from there house, good place for a good night sleep.

This location was not worth the price...likely used on an "hourly" basis? I was afraid to sleep in the bed for fear of "catching" something! Too close to the highway - trucks kept me up all night. Breakfast not served when I left at 6:45am.

Booked a "non-smoking" room on-line. When I called hotel to confirm they said I booked a smoking room. My e-mail confirmation from Orbitz stated it was a non-smoking room. Hotel said they would give me a non-smoking room and "Let it go" this time. Never will I book a room there again.

Just one good night of sleep in a clean room with free internent acccess, TV, air conditioned and the like amenities. I checked out by 10 am but staff was kind enough to let us delay a bit our departure time until 11:30

good

It's okay for one nite, nothing for extended time you have to get off interstate and go back over interstate and then go down the road till the end and it's the last place on the road. you can see it from interstate but have to find way to it.. felt like out of way, to go in & out to places (ex. dinner,movie,shops). room-okay, but bed was to be kingsize it felt like queen or double (like at your home). standard front set of drawers, tv and table chalrs lamps...etc..

Econo lodge room smelled like rotten smoke and mildew.I requested a non moking room.Even after first night and having house cleaning there they tried to cover up smell with something but it still stunk.This is our 2nd time in this kind of motel and our last!!!
