Reviewed 20 April 2009

I agree "littlebudgettraveler" above from Feb 21.

I stayed here one miserable night last summer and thought by now this place would be closed. The photo of the nice looking room on their web site is not indicitave of the room I was in. They would not explain the difference in what's in the photo and the rooms they supply.

fter my stay I complained to Choice and to AAA and was told it was changing from a Econo to something else. AAA said it would be "reviewed" -- not sure what that meant. My complaints were -- deadbolt would not work; AC would not work; carpet was filthy (both in room and hallway); holes in wall and torn wallpaper; some doors to offce/lobby were locked requiring taking a different route; and staff was indifferent. Especially the part about the AC not working and I had "used" the room so could not move to another.

My complaints next morning were met with "_________".

What is really upsetting is that Choice does nothing. I thought by April '09, it would no longer be an Econo Lodge.

Reviewed 21 February 2009

Stopped here for one night on way to Florida and if it hadn't been so late in the evening and raining cats and dogs, would've found somewhere else! Front desk staff was unfriendly and area around front desk old and dirty. The room was old, dirty and smelly. As were only going to be sleeping there for a few hours, just made the best of it. The bedding wouldn't stay on the bed, used our own pillows because there's were disgusting. Didn't even bother to use shower because was also quite dirty. Would not stay there again if it meant sleeping in the car! Kids are still talking about how awful it was!
