We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Elyria over Memorial Day weekend as it was not far from the event we were attending. I'm sorry to say the hotel/motel needs a lot of maintenance. The front desk staff were helpful and pleasant and tried to address our issues, but our room was kind of disgusting in ways that couldn't really be fixed. The refrigerator had been removed at some point and the gap left unaddressed - you could see the mildew and water stains on the bare wood subfloor. The toilet didn't flush, and even though they sent in a plumber to address the problem, it wouldn't flush unless you held down the handle for a long time (even then, the flush was incomplete). The TV didn't really work; I couldn't get most of the stations supposedly available to me. But the shower was actually pretty decent, with lots of hot water and a convex shower curtain rod which made it feel spacious even though the bathroom was cramped. And the beds were adequately comfortable,
If it's any consolation to Econo Lodge, from what we heard from other friends who stayed in other local hotels/motels, none of the other lodgings in the area in the same category were at all pleasant or particularly clean or functional. I hope the chain hotels/motels operating in this area can get over the fact that this part of Ohio is somewhat impoverished and run down, and try to show at least some corporate pride to make these good places to work and functional places to stay. I got the impression the staff were trying their best but were running on no resources.
