“Gross--Never Again”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we had to be to the airport by 4:30am. It was one night too many for sure. If I ever need to stay in this area again, it will be to the Microtel located a few doors down or the Days Inn across the street from the airport.

This hotel is run down, outdated, and just plain disgusting. The ancient carpet throughout the hotel stunk, the room smelled of smoke and the bathroom was in need of much updating. I literally felt like I had to sleep with one eye open with the noise outside and the constant in and out traffic of seedy people that were either paying by the hour or looked to be extended stay guests. The drapes hanging on the windows looked like they were from the 80's. Doors slamming, scantily dressed call girls roaming the halls and drinking construction workers hanging outside the exit made this a night to remember. I never slept and boarded the plane with burning eyes! I would rather drive all night than stay in this rat trap again. Shame on expedia for listing this property, no wonder I couldn't find it on trip advisor. TripPapi will never make this same mistake again!

Maybe the worst hotel I have ever been to. Check in clerk was nice..aside from that...wow..where do I start. Carpet in room is at least 30 years old...smells horrible. Bed felt like I was sleeping on a sheet of plywood. Mold everywhere. I was beyond shocked. Why does Econo Lodge let there name be associated with this place? I have seen crack houses that were cleaner. I will..never...ever...for any reason.give my money to this organization again. How can this place pass health codes? I felt slimy just being there. The corporation that owns this "hotel" should be embarrassed. Actually..I think the CEO of Econo Lodge should be asked to spend a night there. Things would change in a hurry....I was just stunned that a motel could be this awful..I ended up using the disgusting shower and spending the night in my rental car so I would not get bed bugs...it was that awful. How can decent people let travelers stay in filth like this? The United States is not a third word country....yet corporations let travelers book rooms like this.unfathomable. Stay away.

Arrived into the room and notice lots of brown stuff hanging down from the ceiling above the bed. The mattress fitting won't stay in place. A nail sticking up out of the carpet just before you enter the bathroom, my grandson stepped on it. The toilet is very hard to flush. The side entrance door does not have any security lock which mean that anyone can walk into the motel which is scary.
This place should be set up for the homeless not the travelers.

Room Tip: Stay away from this place. It is not a motel!

This is honestly the WORSE hotel I've EVER EVER EVER stayed at in my life and I am a travel agent whose travelled around a bit.

It all started at the counter where they said my credit card was declined. I went right onto my banking and seen there was way more then enough to cover it then they told me ohhh well we have an issue with Canadian credit cards. They are sneaky I think here.

The pool was gross. The breakfast was a joke so was the area that they have breakfast in. The poor girl that was running that area looked like she was ran off her feet. She was also checking me out.

The room was so dirty and gross! Our bathroom door didn't close our lock (the dead blot) was off the door. The carpet was nasty and it smelt weird in the room. I even lysoled the bed too as I didn't know when the last time that was even changed.

It was so nasty so anyone reading this please don't stay here just book some place else!

Room Tip: Don't do it!

When we got there it looked like the place was not cleaned for years. The carpets were so dirty and disusting and there were stains every where. Then in our room, we got a non smoking room, it smelt really bad, it smelt like mold and cigarettes. Then the bath tub was not something u would want to take a bath in, it was very dirty and smelly. It also looked like the hotel has not been renevated in 100 years, the furnature was very ugly and old. The beds then had holes in it including the blankets on both queen beds from our room and I thought that was very odd. Overall I would never stay there again, the only reason I stayed there was to go to walden galleria for the day with my family and it was the worst and dirtiest hotel, that looked like it has not been cleaned in years, that I ever stayed at and will not be going back.

A nightmare!!! Ruined our vacation. When we were arrived, the clowns at this place gave away our non-smoking room with two queen beds. Instead, we were given a smoking room. When I complained, we were told that we reserved a smoking room. Not true. Then, we were told that the only available non-smoking room was with only one king size bed. No cots available. That is when I left. No refund. In tears, I left with my family and returned home. All other hotels were full or very overpriced. It was 11pm. Other people there were complaining too. Shading characters were lurking around this place. Do not reserve a room here!!! You will be very sorry.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

This hotel SUCKS but was better last year under RHODEWAY INN MANAGEMENT.The hotel or more like "MOTEL" we went to really sucked. We ordered two Queen beds but it was actually two twins. The service was alright. We booked two non-smoking rooms that smelt like smoke. Everything here was sooooo OUTDATED, like the 70`s and had a bad smell too! The pool got really over crowded because it was way toooooo small. The breakfast had only cereal,bagels and coffee, not a really good selection. There was a creepy lady in the morning that worked there that kept staring at everyone leaving and entering, kinda uncomfortable if you know what i mean. The rooms where crowded and old, DON`T COME HERE!, you`d be better off to stay at the MICROTEL hotel thats right beside this place. Overall, this place is not worth your money!

Room Tip: GO TO THE MICROTELL INN that`s right beside instead!
