Our "Nonsmoking room" came complete with an ashtray, cigarette burns on the bedspread and sheets, and tar dripping off the light fixtures in the bathroom. Our second room was better, despite the iron burn in the carpet, but being at the back of the property felt very unsafe. There were noises from above like we were below the office of...

I have stayed her over 5 different times and each one is both relaxing and comfortable. I know that my car is safe and my room will always be tidy and neat. The room service is a pleasure and sweet. I thought at first this is going to be another one of "THOSE" hotels in Fife, but I was really...

Was it the used washcloth still in the shower? Was it the lack of towels? Was it the stains (blood?) on the strange bathtub in the room? Was it the hand-to-hand drug deals happening at 5:30 a.m. Or was it the ladies getting picked up at 5:30 in the parking lot after leaving the rooms? I don't know which was...

I've been a member of the Choice Privileges Program with Choice Hotels for many years and have stayed previously at a couple Econo Lodge Properties, one of which was acceptable, one marginal and now...
