The smell in this room was beyond putrid, like baby powder in a feces soiled 3 month old diaper!!! It was dank, dingy and I am never going to stay at an Econo Lodge as long as I live!

2/19 The lobby seem quite dated. Mary that checked me in was very pleasant. Mary added my Wyndham rewards information to the record. Room 311 was very clean. The bed is the best I've experienced in the 4 months of staying in budget motels for this project. Room 311 Sheets, blanket and comforter smelled very fresh. Pillows were good too....
