My family and I were down from GA visiting our daughter. We arrived late Friday night and the room was horrible. It was dirty, air didn't work properly, TV would not change channels, pillows were paper thin. Management was even worse. When our daughter came to visit the next morning, management called my husband and was very rude saying that... More

Interesting experience. I wish I could give it a 2.5 rating. It is a family run business. This is truly a matter of making it work to make a living. There is only so much one can do with "old and worn." However, everything was really clean! That is what made it work for us. We only needed a place... More

Reviews I read before booking were positive, but we found the place to be dirty. Wouldn't ever recommend. The desk clerk was friendly, but we should have asked to see the room first. Would not have stayed. Also charged $20 for pet which was pretty expensive from other places. Didn't see anything about "free breakfast" but wouldn't have eaten anything... More

Booked in a hurry and thought it was Econo Lodge. Traveled with a service dog and was put in the worst room they had because of the dog. Filthy carpet, moldy bathroom rusty, bent lamp, cracks around the door and air conditioner and the room smelled moldy. I hated for our clean dog to even lay on the nasty carpet.

What a dump! After a long hard day of work, we thought this was an EconoLodge and needed a place that would accommodate the tractor trailer as well as being pet friendly. The room was cheap enough and the pet fee was $20 which I thought was a bit high for what we ended up getting for the evening. First... More

Reviewed 24 July 2013

First off, they were over priced and the only reason I booked a reservation is I mistook this place for "Econo Lodge". The amenities as described online were grossly exaggerated. In fact, when I arrived I could tell low income families reside there. There was a rusty lamp situated on either side of the bed and the semi clogged bathtub... More

This place was very unsanitary and the staff was unprofessional.The shower and shower curtains had mold all over them before I even moved in. The lady at the front desk (I believe her name is Mena, she has black hair with a few gray strands in it) was very rude. She became frustrated with me for no apparent reason. She also... More
