Please DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! It is better to sleep in your car. I checked in this hotel because it was close to the highway, and I am a member of choice Hotel and wanted to get points. My first impression was to go elsewhere. It looked cheap but when I saw the choice hotel information, and the guy wore a choice hotel shirt, I reasoned the room would look better than lobby otherwise the hotel wouldn't qualify for choice hotel. The first room I was given which was supposed to be non smoking smelled smoke and stale smell like it had not been slept for a decade. I went back to front desk and requested another room. When I got inside I noticed the cobwebs. I wanted to use the toilet but when I opened the lid I thought I would throw up. Mold and dirt all over. I walked to the phone to tell front desk that I had changed my mind but the phone just rang and rang. No answer. The phone was so filthy I had to use my gloves to use it. Since my card had already been charged, and it was so late, I thought I just pray that no disease would touch me, and called it a night. In the morning I tried to open the door to get out but it won't open. I tried to dial front desk but the phone did not work. I called the hotel phone from my cell 3 times but no answer. I tried knocking on the window, but there was no one out there. Just a bunch of cars. I then called 911. A policeman came with the front desk guy who had checked me in. He instructed me to open the window latch, which I did. He opened the window and got inside the room. He tried to open the door but it won't open. I had to get out of the window. I stayed there November 29th, 2013, and I am requesting a refund or take legal action, because my health was subjected to diseases in the toilet, and when I woke up I sneezed like crazy. I was forced to sleep there because the front desk did not answer the call for me to cancel the room and check out, and I lost 2 hours in the morning trying to get out of that hotel, which made me late on my schedule. I don't know yet what the filthiness in that room has on my health but if they don't refund my money I will have no choice but to take legal action. I have tried to call the hotel several time but they are not answering my calls. This hotel is safety and health hazard and it need to be shut down. DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL. There is a hotel across the street (Days Inn) which is about 10.00 more. I would rather pay 100.00 more than stay in this Econo Lodge. I hope they will be shut down soon.
