I stayed one night at this hotel. The place is old, but clean, and VERY basic. If you need a bed (not bad, comfortable) and a shower (good water pressure) this place will work. But if you want anything more go somewhere else.
When I checked in I was handed a TV remote. They are not left in the rooms. The rooms do NOT have coffeemakers. I had to go to the front desk and ask for one. The clerk told me the coffee makers keep getting stolen so guests who want one need to ask for it.
The continental breakfast was very lean...VERY. At 7:15 am there was no coffee (it was 'being made'), half a dozen muffins and a few plain bagels (open in a basket - not covered or in a bin of any sort) was all there was. When I checked in I asked about fruit for breakfast and was told there wouldn't be any because it's too expensive this time of year. The hotels website advertises a 'continental' breakfast so I expected more than just one kind of muffin or a plain bagel.
The internet service is poor. It seemed like the equipment wasn't good enough to reach all the rooms. The bed beside the window received service, but the bed further away from the window did not.
I did not leave because this locations cancellation policy is 24 hours out. One needs to cancel 24 hours before arriving. So I was committed to paying for the room by the time I saw all this.
I don't think this place meets Econo Lodge's basic standard. I put it in the same group as a small, privately owned old motel.
