I wasn't expecting much when I booked a room at this Econolodge 3 hours before we had to be there. I have stayed at some crummy Econolodges. I was more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Our room was cleaner than the beach house we rented for over $2000. I mean it was REALLY clean. No weird crud in the...

It was a surprise for me. For the price i paid for this motel, it was actually very nice. The manager of this hotel is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are pretty average but very clean. Bathrooms were clean too. Their breakfast is served in the small lobby area and has very limited options. Dont set very high expectations. This...

This is an older motel, but is reasonably maintained. The staff I met were quite friendly and nice to talk to. But the facilities seems to be basic, and the air conditioning unit is old-styled, dusty and a bit noisy. The continental breakfast is served at the small lobby, which is limited to pastry and bread items. There is no...
