We were going to the Resorts World casino and this place is within walking distance. We've been here before and knew what we were getting into as far as the accomodations. We just needed a place to sleep before the hour drive home. We got out of the car and immediately smelled a strong marijuana odor. We go inside, and the clerk was rude and tried to talk us out of the large room with two beds. We took the queen room even though it was small because we just wanted to get it done, and the clerk took a very long time running our credit card. He finally tells us the card was declined...which we knew was impossible...and he demanded cash only. So we gave him cash and planned to call the bank later. We get to the room and we get an email from the bank that Econolodge has a $130 hold on the account for the night's stay!!! So we go to the clerk, who claims it was all a mistake...and after a lot of attempts on his part to "find the mistake" we get the cash back. We also get the larger room for our trouble....not because he offered but because we demanded it. Turns out, we get the room that seemed to be the source of the marijuna smell. No wash cloths or hand towels in the bathroom. It was a smoking room but there was no ashtray, and there was visible filth inside the heater/ac unit. The sink was stopped up and the toilet wouldn't flush. Stay away from this place. If I could give it no stars I would!!!
