Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

We stayed here with a tour group. No heat in the rooms the first night. Night 2= too hot. One window never could open, and the one that did open the 1st night was broken the 2nd. 2 guys in our group had 2 strangers enter their room at 2am. With a key. No one's key worked for more than 1 use. Stay away.

Find your way to room 111 as there will a plentiful abundance of bed bugs to feast on your body. SICK! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. Don't bother trying to give them a heads up about the infestation as they will deny it. It is not worth the cost at the hospital!

This is a horrible place! Dirty, no disgusting! Really really shady characters running around. Yes the price sounds good, but you would be better off sleeping on a park bench with bears, and it would be a whole lot cleaner! Not worth risking safety...

Found bed bugs in my bed. Talked to front desk clerk, she refused to talk to me. Talked to manager and showed him the bugs crawling around my bed. Insisted it was dried tobacco and not insects. They were literally crawling all over the sheets. Denied it was bugs, refused any sort of refund. Never ever stay here, not worth the money, headache, lying owners or incompetence!!!!!!!!!!

This hotel is the cheapest in town for a reason. The girl below me that wrote she had a fabolous time there is either mentally challenged or just use to being dirty! THERE ARE BED BUGS!!!!!!! ALOT OF THEM. When you go tell management about them they try to come at you as if your making the whole story up about the bugs crawling on you even when they come to your room and see the bugs for themselves the first thing they say is " I have to wait to see what my manager says to do". As if its normal to have bugs Ans baby roaches in your bed. Outside behind the building where you park at smells like dead fish and it seeps in your room. The shower is extremely small when you step in your half way out! PLEASE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD DO NOT GO TO THIS MOTEL AND PLEASE DONT BRING YOUR CHILDREN TO A DISGUSTING PLACE LIKE THAT! If your use to sleeping with bugs and foul smells then you will fit right in! Also customer service is horrible

I just recently stayed at Econo Inn, on a trip up to Alaska for my friends graduation.. I enjoyed my stay there, and didnt have any issues with bedbugs at all, so I dont exactly know what the guy before me saw, but from what I got from it you were just looking for a place to crash for a couple hours and then complain to get your money back. when I checked in I asked them about bed bugs, and the person behind the desk assured me that they didnt have any bed bugs. That they have a professional that goes in there and checks them out on a regular bases and they have came out clean every time. I loved my stay, room was perfect, kinda warm but other than that no complaints from me. I would tell all my friends and family to stay at this place!
