Recent guest reviews

very rude woke me a 1.5 hrs b 4 out and conti. call untill i answer just 2 hang up ok

The staff was very nice and helpful, but the room itself was AWFUL! Rugs were dirty and ripped up. The bed was two twin frames with a full mattress laid on top. There was no wifi, internet hookup, or hotspot. The door looked like it had been kicked in in the past. The only redeeming quality of this stay was the staff and the price. Other than that, stay away!

The location was awkward. The signage should be brighter and bigger. All were very friendly.

Room was clean and adequate. No frills but good value for the dollar. Staff was friendly

I was traveling across country from Jacksonville, Florida. I had been sleeping in my truck for three nights so the thought of a hotel was great. Being on a budget I picked this hotel. Upon arrival it seems like a good place, after checking in is the only problem I had. I turned the corner to park and was greeted by three police officers and the border patrol. They were removing illegal's and flipping over everything in the rooms. I asked the police if this was a safe place and he informed me that it is not the greatest of areas. This made me a little worried but all was well. My truck and all its stuff was still there in the morning. The owners/employees were very nice. I would stay again, for one night, just not two.

I was on a business trip and was not at the hotel much but the staff was friendly and met all of my needs. The area surrounding the hotel was not the best but there was a gas station and a grocery store near by and that helped for those people on a budget.

This hotel is AWEFUL!! The shower had mold in it, the shower curtain rod literally fell off the wall leaving a hole in it, sheets had stains on them, tv speakers were blown and had no volume, dresser drawers were broken and only 2 of them would open, toilet wouldn't flush correctly, shower faucet lever fell off, no hair dryer, and in the worst part of town. Every building had bars on the windows, if that tells you anything! I will NEVER stay there again or recommend it to anyone!

Actually I didn't even stay. When I arrived at the hotel, there were homeless people, drug dealers and prostitutes all around. It felt extremely unsafe, I decided to stay elsewhere. I do not recommend this hotel, even if it is a good price.

Staff very helpful; very convenient. My wife and I were initially thrilled when arriving that there was a very fancy, new-looking EconoLodge sign out front -- which lead us to hope that it was recently remodeled. No such luck. Rooms have fixtures and furniture that are past their prime. Clean, just older and heavily worn.

A good place to sleep, not a resort hotel.

There was a wind storm and the electricity went out, so we had shower and pack in the dark.It was very difficult attempting to shower in the dark, and get dressed, since our goal was to be on the road by 5:45 am. We called to see if the front desk had any flashlights, but they only had one. For emergency's the hotel should have extras on hand to lend out to guests. I know it was a fluke, but we spent the day not feeling too clean, and left w our hair wet and hoping we didn't leave anything in the still dark room as we packed in the dark.

The econolodge was not the best hotel I've ever stayed at. We only stayed for about 8 hours and didn't take advantage of the amenities. It served it's purpose.
