This place looks nice in the pictures and overall, the cabin we stayed in was nice. We had to go get our own towels though and some of the bedding for the sofabed. And the key cards for the door didn't work very well, so we had to keep going back to the front desk ( a bit annoying). Also,...

Me and my husband came here for our anniversary and it was great! We had a jacuzzi room and we loved it, it was clean and very nice! The front desk guy, David, recommended a very interesting restaurant, Nonna Lisa. It was very romantic. I would definitely come back :)

Econo lodge is the dirtiest hotel I stayed at.The towels were dirty, stained, while the bed was not only uncomfortable but the next day I woke up with FLEA BITES. Stay away if you want to stay healthy

We booked this place and they said when we showed up they didn't have our reservation even though I had the confirmation number. So they sent up elsewhere to stay and pay more. The next day we returned and they put us in a cabin that once again was not what I reserved. Horrible experience here, will not even consider...

Don't stay here. Please don't let your family stay here. The front desk staff were rude. The furniture was broken, flies all over, it smelled, holes in doors, one bed was about a foot lower than the other, mop boards missing, dirty room, old TV, mold and rotten floor in the bathroom, mold on entrance door, refrig on the floor,...
