“Worn out hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Good enough to crash. Old hotel not updated for may years. Free breakfast. Good location near freeway, shopping and restaurants. Fridge and microwave in room. Stay in area often. Some days it is cheap, other days kind of pricey.

The night desk clerk was clearly unhappy to be there. There was a used condom in the parking lot next to the door when we left the next morning. It was clean, but it was also run down. Clearly very little maintenance had been done. The cost absolutely was not reasonable - $57 a night for a $30 room.

I liked this lodge. The room and bathroom was clean. The bed sheet, pillow cases were clean and were being changed everyday. The breakfast was good. The room had a small refrigerator, microwave oven, air conditioning, TV, coffee maker, everything that we needed. Overall a good experience at a very reasonable cost.

this place was VERY run down. Cannot believe it is one of the choice hotel selections. It reeked of smoke even in the non smoking areas. Breakfast was skimpy to say the least.Carpeting ws very dingy....dirty?? And only two towels per room....even if there were 3 people staying there.. and not even a bath mat. Was nice that we could open the window and admire the hotel and pool next door on a very hot day. The only GOOD thing was the very pleasant, nice receptionist in the daytime. The one in the evening had no idea how to smile... Customer service.....no where in site!! Would not stay there or in any other econolodge again.

This place was unexpectedly run down, but was still comfortable and clean. The room had a full-size ironing board/iron, free wifi, and the window actually opened. The hotel was very close to I-77 and a plethora of great shopping. Overall it was a pleasant place to stay for one night, but I would probably look elsewhere before booking again.

Stayed June 2013, travelled as a couple

This facility is pretty run down, compared to other Econo Lodges I have stayed. The continental breakfast is the standard you expect in all Econo Lodges. The beds were pretty comfortable, or perhaps I was just too tired to care.

i usually do not write reviews however i did not like seeing that many people complained about little things in the hotel, i wanted to make sure everyone knows about an amazing experience i had.

This hotel is not hilton garden inn, however it is the best service i have recieved so far. i travel often for work, and usually the staff at hotels seem not to care for you, they want to check you in and thats is where their service ends. the staff at econolodge, however, made sure our stay was comfortable. the staff picked up our phonecalls immidatly, and if we requested any thing extra they quickly brought it to our room.

the hotel is also very cheap to stay, pet friendly ofcourse. there is a huge parking lot and grassed area where you can walk you dog. the also have great breakfast in the morning that you can pick up and be on your way. i usually travle for days and have to do my launtry on the road, this hotel has washer and dryer in the facility and i took full advantage of that.

you are going to get what you pay for, and if you are so picky please by any means spend money and go stay at hilton inn. but if you are looking for something cheap, great service and great breakfast you should definetly consider staying at this hotel. i felt like home here and so will you
