from the condition of the carpet to the lack of an apparent smoke detector to a very discourteous front office clerk it went down hill from here.. there was no hair drier in the room ( ad said it would have one) quite possibly we were the only couple that stayed more than a few hours. (catch my drift)

The biggest downside that "irked" us, was how very dirty the carpet was inside the room. The room we stayed in needed a good shampooing. Our toddler's feet were black! The hotel is outdated with their furniture inside the rooms if you're bothered by worn furniture. We met up with our family and their room smelt very moldy. The pictures... More

When we checked in with a non smoking room reserved we got a room that said nonsmoking on the outside but the minute you walked in the door the smell hit you terribly. The India man at the front desk said sorry and gave us another on the other side. We should have left but so tired we stayed anyway.... More

Stayed on multiple occasions, as I am patient, love saving money at all costs and have an animal, so my options were limited. The location is infested with bees, living inside the guardrail columns. I let them know in April, May and finally again in June. Nothing was done. I fear public humiliation is the only thing left. There are... More

The first thing to greet us at the door was a swarm of bees. After we got safely into the room we noticed the smell, it seemed to be cigarette smoke mixed with a chemical cleaner and it was very extreme. We were thinking about getting a new room then and there but decided against it (we thought we might... More

We arrived at the Econo Lodge around 2am, after a 12-hour drive, to attend my father's funeral. We immediately noticed that there was no microwave, hair dryer or iron (as advertised). Being exhausted after a long trip we decided to just go to sleep instead of changing rooms or motels. We found burn holes all over the bedding in our... More
