Reviewed 28 March 2016

Nice people but not a nice place. It was in need of many repairs, not very clean and could use a lot of loving care. I would probably not go back. The price was cheap but it was definitely not well taken care of.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay here. Let me assure you we rarely have any complaints about cleanliness and brand compliance at this hotel. If you had mentioned to front desk after check in, our experienced clerk would have been happy to offer another room. I agree the hotel is older but...

We needed a place to sleep before taking the I-75 detour (due to a rock slide) early the next morning to avoid traffic. Given the tripadvisor ratings, it seemed like a decent place, so I made a reservation. (Because I was looking quickly as we drove, I didn't check out the comments as thoroughly as I normally do--big mistake!) I...

Thank you for your feedback. Yes it is an older hotel and located close to the interstate. However we think we are fair with the rates and do have very clean rooms, amenities are brand compliant, most of the reviews are very positive. Just installed new Wi Fi few weeks ago. We wish we could make you happier. I apologise...

Clean room, nice people, convenient location for food and fuel options too. Have stayed there before as Days Inn -- can't tell if many changes have been made other than name. Would stay there again next trip.

We stopped at Econo Lodge. We found a clean room and a breakfast with what we needed while on the road. However, We had a coupon that we got from the welcome centers with a price of $49.00. The night attendant registered us with this price. The next morning when we were leaving we got our bill and a charge...

We liked this hotel. Stayed on the way back south after the holidays. The rooms are large and clean. It's nice being able to park right outside of your hotel room. Friendly, professional staff. Only thing lacking was breakfast. Great choice, we will stay here again.

Found this place on trip advisor because we needed a place to stay overnight while we were traveling south. For $60 this place is great. The room is dated but clean, cable worked fine wifi not so much. You get what you pay for but a great value for the price. Plenty of other guests were staying here. The place...

Convenient & Allows pets hence why we chose it. Has very firm mattresses which I didn't like but the husband did. Rooms were clean & check in clerk Matt was very polite & friendly.

We traveled with our toddler and we were very happy to find the clean accommodations here! The property is obviously well taken care of. Nothing fancy but great for an overnight stay. Good location by the highway with lots of food options nearby.

Using Trip Adviser, I chose this property on my trip South, as an interim stop, for myself only....no family.. My criteria was simple - CLEAN and lower cost. Property is older, but extremely clean and well run. Check in was fast and professional. Well worth the money. I'd stay here again.
