Reviewed 22 August 2014

Our senior rate of $56 makes this motel the best bargain in a 4 state area and 200 mile radius. The brick construction and layout must have been top notch for the era it was built. While it is an older property it is very well maintained and managed.
I would give them a 10 or 5 stars if the hot tub was a little deeper and a tad hotter.
I would go out of my way to stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: Some rooms have an outside door as well as an inside door. Our outside door made it nice for unload...

I checked in this hotel after driving from Shreveport, LA. The front desk made my check in very easy. I was then contacted with a problem, I had made my reservation online, however I needed to checkout early, the hotel had a great understanding and are letting me checkout a day early. Most hotels only care about their bottom line, not the customers.

Room Tip: Great location, with easy access, great wifi, and a very clean hotel.

600+ miles from home in 1 day, we were pleased to find our reservation was at a clean room in a quiet location. I was a little apprehensive given Econo Lodge's image, but this one must be well above average for the chain. The tattered carpet at the threshold of the room made me think "uh-oh", but the room was just fine. Or I should say the 2 room 2 bath suite.

As a family of 6 traveling together, finding one room to accommodate us all is not a certainty. The Econo Lodge in Carthage was just what we needed - if only we could have something like this at every stop! Basically it was 2 rooms made into a suite. Sixsuitcasetravel helped us find this place.

AC in the first room did not seem to want to cool at first, but eventually got nice and cold. Other room's AC was cold from the get-go.

Chelsy at the front desk was cheerful and helpful. We asked for directions to "Spook Light Road" and she went out of her way to provide them. The light was a no-show, but we did find the road and her directions certainly helped. We thanked her when we returned - she said she had seen the Spook Light once and shivered as she said she did not want to ever go back!

Breakfast was OK. Sausage patties but no eggs. Yogurt, waffles, coffee, juice, most of what you expect. We did not get a chance to try the pool.

The price was VERY reasonable - often we have to get 2 rooms for our 6 people, and they don't cost much less each than this one did that could handle us all.

Not a fancy place, but quiet, clean, adequate, and a bargain to boot! Glad to recommend it.

We stopped here on our way back home. The front desk area has recently been updated and the staff was very personable and helpful!! I will say that the rest of the hotel needs some updated but it looks like they are working on this. Also, I have allergies that were not happy with all the strong odors in the front desk area and halls. I'm likely more sensitive than most! I can't say enough about the front desk staff though!

We stayed here at the end of last year whilst on our Route 66 roadtrip. The room we stayed in left alot to be desired. There was a rusty tall lamp, a rusty tissue holder in the bathroom, a crack and bulge in the celing above the shower, looked like that was going to drop down from the ceiling at any moment whilst having a shower. It just felt and looked unclean. Luckily we only had to stay here one night and that was enough.
