“Wonderful Welcome”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

My step daughter and I arrived after having the weekend from hell and the handsome gentleman who greeted us from behind the counter was polite, personable and had a wonderful warm sense of humor and was sympathetic to our needs. I would recommend the EconoLodge again, just because of this gentleman who went by the name of "T". Wonderful! Wonderful guy! He did let us know that there was renovation work being done to the hotel on the side we would be put in, but the workers never bothered us once with their work and they were even kind and polite to us. Thank you "T" for a wonderful stay, for the comfortable beds and making us feel very welcome. Oh and our dogs loved the grounds! They had a nice run in the grassy areas that tired them out really good for a nice nap. Bless you!

This is the second time I have stayed there. Both times were for 2 nights. The first time the beds were not comfortable, but it appears they have replaced them with new ones. WiFi worked great. We had a pleasant stay. Will stay there again!

The management and front desk service is outstanding. They did everything they can to make our stay comfortable. Yes, it is next to a truck stop, yes the trucks are loud, but you know that coming into the hotel. Great room for the price. Large, roomy, great water pressure in the shower, updated flat screen plasma TV, fridge, microwave... we really have no complaints.

Room Tip: Request side away from truck stop.

This is not a 5-star hotel. But the front desk bent over backwards to make sure my friends and I were comfortable and well-accomodated for our two-night stay. Don't be turned off by its "rustic" facade - this hotel was clean on the inside and had high-quality utilities, plus a mini-fridge and microwave in each room. Other reviewers weren't bothered by the Pilot truck stop. It didn't keep us awake at night (even though our windows faced it) but truck traffic does make exiting the property difficult. Try to secure a room on the other side of the motel just in case. We loved the pool but were unenthused by the breakfast. Grocery store, gas station, multiple restaurants and fast food joints are within walking distance.

Bottom line: A dated motel with absolutely first-rate service and surprisingly good accoutrements for dirt cheap.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side are quieter. Don't expect a huge breakfast.

I had stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The front desk was very helpful and seemed to actually care about my wants and needs, the manager was also very helpful. It is across from Pilot which is a truck stop but could not hear the trucks at night with my door closed. Clean room, fresh bedding, good towels, very clean on the out side of building as well. It does have repairs outside that needs worked on but what old building isnt going to need a fix every now and again? I got 10% off my food from the Chinese restaurant across the street which was delivered to my room free of charge. I WILL BE GOING BACK THE NEXT TIME I GO THAT WAY.

Room Tip: from what i have seen they are all good rooms
