“Dump”
Reviewed 26 May 2007

We had made a reservation over the internet based on the reviews and the price. The room had a terrible smell, with no other words to describe this place as a "dump". We couldn't get out of this hotel any faster and ended up staying in the Comfort Inn in Clearfield, PA. I can't believe AAA would recommend this hotel.

I have to say the housekeeping department does the best job on the rooms. I have never seen anyone take such good care of a hotel room. I didn't have any problems with my stay and the front desk was friendly and more helpful than any other front desk personel that I have ever dealt with. I would say to stay here if you are looking for a reasonable price and a nice bed to sleep in.

Stayed in late March on way home from vacation. Very clean room, comfortable bed, quiet location, handy to restaurants. Courteous and helpful front desk. The room could have used an alarm clock and there was no fridge or iron and ironing board like there were in the other motels but for the price, more than adequate. Would likely stay there again if in the area.

The Econolodge is okay if you just need a basic place to stay for the night. The rooms themselves are not bad. The location is good as it is near several restaurants. It is located on a main bus route too, which was great as I was going to the Railroaders Museum and I did not have a car.

But be advised! This place has outdoor passageways and there seems to be people passing by any time of the day or night. Be sure to deadbolt the door! There are some very seedy people staying here--white trash if you will--who actually seem like they are living here. After dark, I made for my room very quickly!

Breakfast is limited to coffee and donuts in the office area. If you want a decent breakfast, you should go to nearby Perkins or McDonalds. There's a Chinese restaurant on the outlot of this place--it's called Hong Kong Buffet--but it isn't very good.
