My mistake to pull up to the first hotel sign, after a long ride in the rain. First hint of a trouble was to pay a $100 deposit in case of a damaging the room. Room itself with missing cabinet doors under the TV, head board from the bed detached with nails sticking out above. Security guard banging at my...

The staff was alright but other than that the entire experience was awful from the minute we got our room key. The room incredibly dirty (stains on the carpet & bed cover to cigarette butts on the floor in a non-smoking room to the latch being broken on the door). We also saw what appeared as a prostitute and her...

When a customer walks in the door they want to be greeted and acknowledged. When it is 102 degrees out and we are expecting a pool, the handwritten sign on the desk saying it's broken is disappointing. When we lock our door at night we want the security lock to work. Mattress pads would be nice. Pay and appreciate your...

Late getting into town and drove up without reservation. I've stayed in Econo Lodge before and thought them to be decent, clean and reasonably priced. I wasn't expecting anything fancy but this was bad. The room smelled, the carpet disgusting, the coffee maker had mold, and no hair dryer available even at office. Never stay there.

This hotel must be at the bottom of the barrel. 3 days without housekeeping; TV doesn't work properly & after complaining about it 5 days ago, still not fixed; Nothing is available at the front desk (like coffee pods]; Grumpy employees that barely smole; I WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN
