Marjorie is so sweet! Breakfast man was very friendly and helpful.

The room was big, had a nice recliner to lounge in, liked that. Bathroom was cleanly but our headboard had smudges on it that were there before we got there. The nightstand also had some kind of smudge... The front desk ladywere really nice, we interacted with Margie and she was delightful. The walls are really thin and by 7am people were up, yelling down the hallway and shutting doors hard which was unpleasant... That and we kept hearing random bangs throughout the night that kept us up. The hotel is right next to the highway so we were also woken by quite a few Jake breaks on tractor trailers .. definitely not a good night's sleep... Didn't do breakfast. Honestly, the things that peeved me about this hotel that could have been avoided by staff was the cleanliness of the room could've been better but other than that, the other things were caused by other guests/location of the hotel.

Heard a lot of noise from rooms all around us, doors opening and banging shut...no duckie this time and bed was VERY uncomfortable

I thought the Econolodge was a good bargain. I was surprised to have breakfast at such a bargain rate room. The only complaint I had was that it sounded like my upstairs neighbors were walking the floor all night and early the next morning, but it wasn't intolerable.

The floors in the rooms were quite nice. I enjoyed my short stay and would return again. No pool but they had a fitness area.

Great customer service , great location Would recommended to every tourist visiting

location.near to destination. busy, elevator needs service. nice friendly staff on evening weekends

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved tge hard wood floors in the rooms

cleaning staff is very noisy very early. Plus I was on first floor and I heard everything from room above.

We checked in late and left early. Was nice for a quick stay.

If I were to ever stay here again I would request the third (3rd) floor! I've stayed on the first floor and it was noisy from the old floors creaking real bad - with every step at 2,3,4 am it would be real loud.... getting a reply from my first stay I thought this issue was being addressed as they were doing some remolding, We got a room on the second (2nd) floor and it was NO BETTER if not worse. Now it is not the hotels fault that people like to march around their room for 20 - 30 minutes at a time at 3-4am but the floors are their responsibility.... one should 2nd guess if they are not a heavy sleeper! (side note again not the hotels fault, at 2:30am someone was pounding on a room door to get attention from inside the room and they must have been a heavy sleeper as this went on for 5-7 minutes with yelling for someone to open the door!!) slept well for 2 hours

The hotel was a very good deal for the price I paid. It was extremely clean, the staff was extremely friendly and the staff was very knowledgeable when we asked questions about the area. There is only one suggestion.

I arrived late after a long drive; it was like finding an oasis!

The hotel room met my expectation. The room was clean fresh painted.

We were traveling till EWR airport in Jersey city from North of US and that was good choice to make a stop 2 hr before NY. You gowhat you pay. Good price for this hotel.

Loved this hotel! It was clean, the room was large and there was no carpeting instead there were wood floors which were very clean. The breakfast was great as well

Stayed for reunion.Regular hotel filled. Was VERY pleased. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Room was spotless. Crisp clean sheets & plenty of pillows. Good coffee with continental breakfast. Would stay again.

I found the place to be very clean. The staff was so very nice. The gentleman in the breakfast room made me a waffle. So good too! My only problem was trying to get on the WIFI. I did not find the directions on the card to be complete. But I was so tired when I arrived, it seemed that it was a good idea to go to bed. I liked the selection of pillows because I like thin pillows and there was one to suit me.
