Reviewed 28 December 2014 via mobile

This hotel is nothing fancy but it's clean, quiet, and comfortable. We stop here as a half way point while traveling because its convenient and safe. We also travel with a dog and they allow for pets for only a ten dollar fee. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is affordable and we will stay here again.

I stopped at this hotel while traveling to Groton CT to visit my daughter and her family, the hotel was very clean, the room was very clean, in fact they give you an inspection sheet to fill out if you can find anything that does not meet your standards, with a chance to win something in a drawing every month,...

Great value for the price and a great location with food right close!! Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean! What more can you ask for? Granted this is not the Hilton but it's also much cheaper than the high hotels!

I was hesitant to book Econolodge, I usually pay more. Note I didn't say I normally stay at a nicer place. This place is as good or better than many that charge double.

This place was absolutely wonderful. The staff was courteous, very friendly, and helpful. Our room was spotless especially for a smoking room. Bed was comfortable. Location was great. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, especially for the price, which was very reasonable. If we're ever back in town this is the only place we would stay.

We stayed overnight while traveling through the northeast this fall. We found this hotel right off of Interstate 81...it is easy to get off/on while traveling.

We had read the great Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed: large clean comfortable quiet room, flat screen with tons of channels, lots of hot water and water pressure in the shower, good breakfast, friendly staff. Fridge and microwave, close to grocery stores and other shopping, easy off-on the interstate. We would definitely stay here again.
