Average older Econo Lodge . Did have a Nice Refrigerator with large Freezer. But bedding was old and comforter in need of cleaning. Basic" Bread" Breakfast. Overall an O.K. Stay if you are looking for a Budget Room.

Large modern room, King bed, microwave / large fridge / freezer, very clean, super soft towels, very good bed. Wonderful value at $52. Far too good to be an econolodge. All good, no bad. It's odd not find anything wrong with this brand, but the only minor issue was a random computer problem during check-in that took 15 minutes to...

Nothing special, older motel, breakfast was only a waffle maker and some muffins...but the room was clean, the front desk ladies were smiling, polite and very helpful. Received a good rate on Hotwire. Was there on a Friday and Saturday night and few cars in the parking lot.

Stay away from this place, rooms suck, internet sucks, screams at all hours. Stay very far away..This place is dirty, smelly, and noisy. I could get no work done, the internet may have been dial-up, it actually was that bad. I would stay 50 miles away to avoid staying here.

We paid double the next night for an equivalent room at a large chain which did not have as god wifi and was not more comfortable. Place is old, but clean and well maintained. Breakfast was minimal, but for the price what more could you want?

Our room was not cleaned after the last guests. Toothpaste in the sink and makeup on the pillow cases. Hair everywhere. Spider webs on the walls. Some type of small dead bug in the bed. The only reason it got 2 stars is because it was cheap and had a decent free breakfast. Bring your own linen if you stay...

What a dump. You could here loading trucks all night long. Room was bare bones, felt grimy. Continental breakfast was 3 English muffins, orange or apple and waffle maker. Small plastic cups for waffle batter also served as juice cups. Got rebuked by manager when I used their small Styrofoam cup for coffee with juice.

The people working there were really nice. Unfortunately the room had some issues - sparking electrical sockets, noisy exhaust fans and while the room was clean, the furniture had stained seat cushions. The lodge is scheduled for renovations - and they are certainly needed!

This is what it is. Exactly the standard one would expect for the price. Nothing to complaint. On plus side the rooms are located further from the road so not much noise there. Somewhere in reviews below the rude manager was mentioned. I am not fully sure if I encountered same person, however the opinions were exchanged and I can...

This is a nice, basic motel, near the center of town, with friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. It is not fancy, but was a great value for the money. My experience was completely different than some of the other reviews that comment negatively on cleanliness; I have stayed here many times and though this is an older building I...
