My earlier review seems to have gone into a black hole. I've never written a poor review like this for any motel. The original room we were given was nice and looked newly rehabbed. Unfortunately the A/C didn't work and it was in the high 80's outside. They gave us the room next door, so we had to pack everything...

Let me start off by saying the staff is great. The breakfast was great. They have started to do some remodeling, but being in the construction industry noticed some low quality work on high and materials. The rooms were nice the bed was comfortable but I did feel my my room could have been cleaner.

This hotel has gone thru a big improvement. From our last visit few years ago there has been a major facelift to the lobby pool area and the rooms. Friendly staff and quality breakfast. There are few restaurants in the area. Kids loved the pool.

Had to clean the room myself. Ashes everywhere, dirty tableso with sticky rings from drinks, mild in the air conditioner. Pool was freezing. Toilet bowl tank lid wasn't the right one so caused a safety concern for our 3 year old. Wouldn't recommend to anyone!

We found the smoke detector unplugged from the ceiling housing and sitting on a table. Reported this at about 4:45 p.m. Told maintenance would not be in until following day to fix. Probably disconnected so someone could smoke in room. Where was housekeeping on this or was it them or maintenance who disconnected it. Then went to bed. Up at...

DIRTY!!! Elevator control panel open wires exposed. horrible smell in the hallways. The carpets in the room were not very clean. the pool was closed by the state health Department. The toilet in the room would not flush right either. I don't expect 5 star at econo lodge but all of them I have stayed at were at least clean.
