Our non-smoking room smelled smoky, we found a penny and some other objects on the floor, and one towel was stained. Otherwise, it seemed clean, and everything (except one socket) was in working order. We had 4 sets of semi-thick towels, which was nice. The employees were friendly and we felt relatively safe. Yes, we could hear the interstate all... More

We stayed at this Econo Lodge on 6/18/2016. The hotel is a good deal for the money--$67.82 for a non-smoking room with two double beds. I booked this room online and requested a first-floor room which we were given. The room was nice and clean and the beds comfortable. I wanted to take a bath but there were no drain... More

We were up for the DMB concert and stayed the night. The parking area is steep on the front side...hotel located on a hilltop. The receptionist was very polite and helpful. Although the hotel is old it was clean. You get free breakfast at the Waffle House...not a big breakfast but a biscuit or waffle and a beverage. I've paid... More

The staff was great, the room was adequate but the internet was the worse. I could hear the traffic from the interstate is was so close. The waffle house is attached to the hotel. You get a free breakfast sandwich for staying there.

We arrived at the Econolodge around 2 am, staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel lobby is clean and inviting but as soon as you hit the stairway all hell breaks loose. Hallways smell, carpets are dirty. Doorways are filled with dirt and trash. Walked in the room to be greeted by ducktape on the Light switch. Carpets were dirty, sheets... More

We had been on the road for 11 hours. It was late and we just wanted to get to bed. The bed was small, the room cold and the place stank of cigarette smoke, despite being told it was a 'no smoking ' hotel - explain the cigarette burns in the sheets then? We tried not to touch the carpet... More

My boyfriend and I were in town for a graduation and booked this hotel through hotwire for a great deal. The bed was smaller than expected but was plenty comfortable, the room was updated/modern and clean. The woman at the front desk was very helpful upon our arrival. The shower had instant hot water and great water pressure. The air... More

I don't know how this hotel made it under the choice hotels umbrella, this hotel had a very small bed, I had to upgrade to a king, the bathroom had peeling paint, the shower rod was leaning and not tighten to the wall, the tile in the shower was old with caulk holding it together and the tub coloration looks...

I was very optimistic going into the room as the tv was updated and the bed was pretty comfy. What I didn't know is that sleep in that bed wouldn't be happening since the bar next door had music so loud I could not only hear it but I could feel it. I decided to take a shower....big mistake.

Omg horrible experience! Starters the parking lot is NOT motorcycle friendly/safe. Am an experienced rider and was challenging. The hotel adjoins a juke joint if that tells you much.
