Bottom floor is none smoking but they install an ashtray one foot from the rear door instead of 20 feet as it should be.The hallway smells liei smoke. A little bit more generous with breakfast....

We stay here every year for our annual beach trip. This hotel is conveniently located to the beach and everything you need. The breakfast is very good and the pool is great. The only suggestions I have are minor. Pool towels were never available and front desk staff could be a little more friendly. Also, being a non-smoker in a non-smoking room, it is a huge annoyance to have people smoking on the balcony right next to you and that’s all you can smell. Our maid was super sweet and did a great job.

It was good. Would like to see a table and chairs out FRONT to sit and relax in morning

Disappointing room cleanliness. There were stains on the mattress cover and blanket - when we took them to the front desk to show them, they gave us a new one for us to change on the bed ourselves, which we thought was odd that they didn't at least offer to do that for us. The refrigerator was also not very clean inside and appeared to be leaking. They did assist us with a late checkout, which we appreciated.

The stay was neither bad nor memorable. The desk clerk was pleasant, but a little perfunctory. My room shared a wall with the elevator shaft, so I heard some mechanical noise. Since I have a white noise machine, that was not a particular problem. I will stay there again based on this experience.

The front desk check and check out staff were wonderful! I have cancer and have difficulties doing some things and they were very helpful and accommodating. Thank you!

Underpowered Internet and old pixilated TVs with limited number of channels. Lumpy mattress. Clean room though.

The shower was broken and the maintenance man was sick so we did not have a shower. Thankfully the tub worked fine so we made do. Upon checkout our bill was adjusted to cover our inconvenience so I would recommend this hotel as a fine place to stay.

All was ok...busy at hotel..holiday wknd.did not get room no smoking as requested.

Very average hotel with just the basics. Great location right off of I-79. If you're looking no thrills...this is it!

Great location. Right off the highway. Little pricy for a single queen bed.

Our room was very clean. The hotel staff was very pleasant and friendly.

I've stayed here twice. Once to get my child settled in college and the other to visit the college on a family weekend. The rooms on the whole are basic and bit on the small side but I found them clean and they suited my budget minded needs. I found most of the staff to be accommodating and helpful.

This is conveniently located, close to Allegheny College. The owners or managers were personable and attentive. They had complimentary snacks and water bottles available at night - microwave popcorn and yogurt. The room was comfortable, and it was within walking distance to the Applebees next door if you didn't want to drive anywhere to find something to eat.

Outstanding--Front Desk Woman was great--very cordial and helpful.

stay over for business trip, best shower in years, room VERY clean

Basic but clean. Staff very friendly. Breakfast better than expected. Wi-Fi ok.

Close to restaurants, rooms are average. Beds not too comfortable. Staff was average, not overly welcoming.

The Econo Lodge was very clean and well-kept. The bedding was new looking and clean - the pillows were very comfortable. I'd give up a closet for a rack, a dresser for shelves, and paintings on the walls for the low price any day. The breakfast doesn't include eggs, sausage or bacon, but you've got toast and bagels, muffins, cereals, yogurt, hot and cold drinks. The only bummer is that you can't get free wifi or access to a computer there...

less than avg. would not rec. I really have nothing else to say.
