The linens and towels were clean and the bed was firm. We had a good night's rest. There was shampoo and conditioner but no hand soap - I think they thought the shampoo and body wash covered that. There was no hairdryer either and only one available electrical outlet in the room (in the bathroom) into which we could plug... More

Room had no towels nor soap. Highly recommend you find other accomodations and save yourself from a most miserable experience. It would be better to sleep in your car than stay here. You have been warned....

It is difficult to convey how terrible this place is. First, the room given to us originally smelled like smoke and when i mentioned it, the manager went to the room and came back and said i and my entire family were all wrong - no smoke smell. if i wanted another room it would cost more. So I got... More

We stayed here for one night because we had a discount coupon. The check-in clerk was friendly and accepted the coupon without problems. But he did not inform us about check-out time, breakfast times and wifi-codes. However when we asked for the codes we got them and when we came for breakfast (too late..) he still gave us some bread... More

Stopped here on our way to Vegas as it was cheap and close to the freeway. As night fell though, it became clear that the area was less than savoury, and by around midnight the whole place felt very unsafe. After returning from dinner, we found that the window could not be fastened closed. Alerted the manager, who was only... More

I’ve stayed at a lot of EconoLodges but this was the worst. Our room was really old and shabby. The drawer in the nightstand was broken, the furniture very cheap, the linens sad. Two lightbulbs didn’t work, nor did the advertised wireless Internet. We were not alone; our neighbor was wandering around outside with his laptop trying to find a... More
