We were looking for an affordable place to sleep at 1:30 am, we grabbed a coupon book at the rest stop and decided that we would give the econo lodge a try. (It was $48) the photos on line didn't look to bad. The cleanest thing in our room is the toilet. Shower is dirty, carpet is beyond dirty and...

As many others have stated....pass this one up. I was passing thru and could not pass up a deal on the price. It was better than others within the Choice Hotel Chain. However, here, there seems to be some readily needed modernizations to the accommodations. It would seem as though I had one which was updated...does any one with a...

I was shocked and appalled to say the lease. If we had just looked at a review because I am telling you, they are all bad but true! I will start by saying the young man at the desk was so nice...I felt sorry for him as its not his fault. Top ten reasons why you should not stay there:1....

Why I didn't read reviews before booking I have no idea other than I was using my Choice pts. Supposedly it's under new mgt. But don't know how that can fix the problems!

This motel is in serious need of updating. King bed consisted of piece of plywood on floor then 2 twin box springs with king mattress on top, making for a very low bed. Mattress a bit saggy; pillows overly soft. Bedspread was worn out and had holes in it. Old analog TV. Couch was in desperate need of cleaning, if...

We had been on the road and had to stop somewhere. The price was right, and the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They had an outdoor pool which looked nice enough but which I did not use. The free breakfast was mediocre, and the room, though clean, was dingy and woefully out of date. Effingham is one...

you liberally assumed that because I didn't explicitly mention the filth in the room that I stayed in then it must've been clean...it wasn't!
