I selected the Econo Lodge because I am on a tight budget and the price was right. I was hesitant to stay at an Econo Lodge but other traveler's reviews assured me that this particular Econo Lodge was very clean and well-kept. I should have trusted my instincts- upon arrival we were told that we would have to stay in a smoking room. Since neither my partner or I are smokers, why would we want to stay in a room that smells of stale smoke? The desk attendant told us that they were all out of smoke-free rooms (there were about 5 cars in the parking lot, how could there be no more smoke-free rooms?) and then after some convincing, miraculously discovered an available smoke-free room. After arguing our way into the smoke-free room, we hauled all of our belongings up to the room we had been given, only to find that the room was STILL OCCUPIED.
Eventually we were able to get into an AVAILABLE smoke free room that was about what you would expect- bare bones, but acceptable. The room appeared to be fairly clean until we took a look at the bed, there were hairs all over the sheets.
I would not recommend staying at this hotel, the customer service leaves something to be desired and the cleanliness was certainly not up to par. For the price I was not expecting elegant decor or a kitchenette, but I would have appreciated better customer service or at the very least, clean bed-sheets.
