This my second time, great experience. Even though, i messed up on my reservation, the staff and someone I sensed to be the owner, were really great in resolving my problem. This is the only hotel for me whenever I visit this area.

Clean room, plenty of meal options close to hotel. Everyone at the hotel was nice and made for a pleasant stay

was a great hotel to stay in for my weekend getaway

Clean. Next to a lot of stores. Many food places in walking distance.

This hotel is not good at all. Room is dirty and the AC made a lot of noise.

Nice lam wood flooring. Seems like they renovated the room. Location and the guy checking us in wasn't good.

Room was dirty, all that they had for me was a smoking room and ALL my stuff stinks now, continental breakfast I could have gotten more out of the trash,,, and the bed was uncomfortable.... Nuff said....

It was really awesome. The workers were very nice and helpful.

The looks of the hotel from the outside are not that great but the inside was clean and it served it's purpose. The bed was not comfortable AT ALL and the free breakfast was VERY minimal but cannot complain for a cheap hotel it was worth the stay.

The room was clean. Had a fridge, microwave, iron and board, hair dryer, and coffee maker with all the fixings. The young man at the front desk seemed honestly friendly. My only complaint was that the coffee maker was broken and though they said they woiuld check it out, they never did. However, since Dunkin Donuts was right in front of the hotel and since there was coffee available at the breakfast bar in the morning it wasn't a problem. The breakfast area is rather crowded and you might have to wait in line to use the toaster, but the selection wasn't bad. The dog walking area was directly across from the entrance. I would definitely stay there again.

This Econolodge was taken over by a small family that’s slowly reviving it and making improvements from its previous decrepit state. They’re working hard at it and deserve a lot of credit, although the place still has some ways to go. The son manning the front desk, although working a 16-hour shift, was friendly and helpful—especially when we came to breakfast and complained that there was no fruit or anything healthy. (Frozen bagels, waffles and pastries and a few types of cereal were all they had.) He actually called his mom who arrived minutes later (in her pajamas, it appeared!) carrying a bag of bananas and apples. Very much appreciated! In general the place still seems a bit run down, but adequate for those on a budget. Our room was tiny, but clean, and the bed was fairly comfortable. Towels and bedding are worn, and the TV is old, but there’s a good selection of channels and the free wifi works fine. Shower pressure was pretty good. The place is noisy overnight—our door rattled when people came in and out of the corridor outside, which disturbed our sleep. Lobby has a computer and an ATM machine. I was impressed that such a small budget place does have a fitness center, although it’s minimal—one treadmill and an exercise bike and a weight machine in a tiny room that’s open from 7 a.m. till 10 pm. The location is convenient with Dunkin Donuts, fast food and a truck stop right next door, and the surrounding area is quite pretty. We’ll come back here if traveling this way again—the personal effort and attention of the staff made up for the place’s shortcomings.

We had some trouble with the computer hook up. The cords had to be stretched. We wanted to surf the net in bed but the hook-up was quite far away and it got disconnected from stretching it too far. Also the vacuuming was not done properly. There was a lot of large pieces of garbage behind the bedside table (straws, a pen, assorted litter).

There was nothing enjoyable about this stay except the price of the room. The mattress, sheets and pillow case were clean. The sink and bathroom were somewhat clean, however, the sink was broken and also leaked. The fridge was dirty and the room smelled -it smelled a little better once I sprayed Lysol on everything and wiped it all down. Although I requested a smoke free room-the hallway stunk of smoke and the blanket on the bed had cigarette holes in them. If you need a cheap place to stay-this would be it-be prepared for anything though..

The hotel was fine I let my suite behind and the hotel held it for me

attending family funeral. we expected an elevator being in our 70s. Had to climbv 2 flights. 1 to check-in and one to the room

Excellent location to stop for the night after traveling all day.
