“Old but OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

The facilities are a bit old and worn, but the service was above average and everything was clean. The manager was cheerful, helpful and informative. The continental breakfast was minimal, but did include waffles made to order.

We stay here a couple times a year to visit relatives in town. It is a lower cost hotel, so the breakfast has fewer choices than the higher dollar rooms (but is generous for the low cost of the room I believe!): (cereal, donut holes, waffle maker, coffee, and juice)..it meets all of our needs. Rooms are always clean, and cool. The housekeeping staff and front staff are always super friendly!

We stayed here because of our small dog. Bed was comfortable, but the room was not clean. The TV was at least 20 years old and if you wanted to watch, you could not because of the fuzz. It was a Friday night and was very noisy, which I am sure our dog then contributed his own noise as he reacted to every sound all night long. The only way to tolerate the noise was to turn on the fan, but then had no heat.The grounds surrounding the building were littered with trash, not the immediate, but we felt a bit unsafe due to the environment. Check-in was pleasant and my husband said the morning coffee was very good.

Room Tip: If you have a dog, a room on the first floor by an outside door may work best for you.

Stopped in for a one night stay while traveling. It isn't fancy and needs to be updated but room was clean and beds were comfy. We were only there for a few hours so it was ok. The only bad thing was the heater in our room wouldn't automatically turn off so I woke up sweating and has to turn it off.

As bad as the reviews are for this hotel, we had no issues with the one night we spent here. WiFi was strong and that was about all we needed besides the bed. Slept well and had a bite of the free breakfast before hitting the road the next morning,.

The lobby was very dirty which made a bad first impression. The rooms need upgrading. The TV needed two remotes to operate which was very confusing. The Heat/Air unit needed cleaning badly. Bathroom was clean. Room was clean but furniture was mismatched with some of it being newer than other pieces and in better shape than other pieces. We could hear other people through the walls from the next rooms. The breakfast was average for this type of accommodations. The breakfast room was bright and attempts made to make it look nice. And although other reviews we read about the staff said they weren't friendly, we found it to be the opposite. All the people we encountered working there were very friendly. We were surprised that the outside doors to the hallways were not secured. We didn't feel that was very safe since anybody could walk in without having to use key access.

I read all the reviews of Econo Lodge before going there this weekend. It is so hard to judge because reviews are so different. I would not stay there again. You get what you pay for! It is very run down. It wasn't filthy like one reviewer said but it wasn't the cleanest either. They had all the exterior doors open because I guess the air conditioning didn't work or they didn't want to pay the bill. We got back to the hotel after midnight and all the exterior doors were unlocked( scarey) The bed wasn't too bad, luckily I was very tired so I slept ok. The owners have their vehicles parked under the covered entrance( probably afraid they would get stolen from the back parking lot)

Room Tip: Other side of the highway
