Reviewed 17 January 2014

The front desk staff were very friendly with cookies waiting for us when we arrived. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. King size bed didn't swallow the room so you had plenty of room to move around. It seemed to be pretty quiet for our stay. The breakfast was pretty good. A few out of order signs thru the hotel but nothing that interfered with our stay anyway. Would probably stay here again when in town.

The room was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and it was a great place to stay. I have no complaints whatsoever. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is a slightly older hotel, and as such has smaller TV's, older heating/AC units, etc. But for the price, and for the location, I don't think you could do any better. Will definitely stay there again.

Staff was friendly, pool and hot tub was excellent,, had to giggle,, cos hubby was eyeing the pool but the lights were not on,,, pool phone starts ringing,,, hubby goes to answer it , apparently the closed circuit camera picked up him eyeing the pool and told him where the light switches were LOL ah it was a really nice place, the bed was comfy the PILLOWS were great ( they even had a price list where we could purchase some,,, well I didn't only because we were leaving the USA to fly to the Netherlands ) Breakfast was fine,, hubby would have loved to have had a couple of boiled eggs..hubby celebrated his 55th birthday next door at Dennys ( they give u a free meal if u show proof of your birthdate,, it was a build your own GRAND SLAM )
We would return :-)

Room Tip: rooms are HUGE :-) so you should be ok in any of the rooms they give you...

As we frequently do on trips, this one was chosen for location. Turned into a pleasant surprise. The room was so huge, we couldn't even decide where to put our stuff. A little short on electrical outlets. Pool and hot tub were excellent. Staff very friendly, especially when we left both keys in our room.

This hotel had friendly staff, and was clean. I am a little leary of getting that stale smoke smell in older hotels, but this one was fresh smelling. The bathroom was clean and comfortable, as was the bed. The breakfast left a little to be desired, but it was okay. The hot tub and pool area were in good condition and were a lot of fun! I would stay here again. It was a nice hotel for an economical rate.

I understand this Econo Lodge is a former Comfort Inn, so rooms are a little more spacious than many economy motels. The room also has a refrigerator and microwave for those who want to prepare their own meal, but I found the walk across the parking lot for a hearty meal at the really good Denny's restaurant well worth it.

WiFi works well, beds are comfortable and rooms are clean but the need for some maintenance beyond what maid service would do are becoming evident, e.g., grout stains in the tub area, chair stains in the breakfast area, etc. The continental breakfast included hard boiled eggs and hot waffles. The breakfast area is quite large and comfortable, There is an inviting indoor pool and hot tub. All in all, this hotel will continue to be a comfortable, good-value option if management is able to keep up the maintenance better than other Econo Lodges I've tried this year.

Room Tip: I like the rooms overlooking the inviting little courtyard.

When I am just passing through a town and stay a 2 star hotel my expectations are not very high, however.... If I were in the area again I would definitely stay at this hotel. Pet friendly, fantastic staff, close to restaurants, grocery store and Harley dealership. What more could you ask for?
