We were traveling to Fla. We wanted a place for an overnight. Called ahead to ask if they had a room for the night at the price advertised in a travel book. The lady at the desk was very polite and asked for my name. She said no card was needed to keep the room for us at the price...

We used the state coupon book and expected a mediocre room and stay. We were really surprised in how clean and comfortable the facility was. It appeared that they had recently renovated the motel and almost everything appeared new. The room was spotless and all the appliances worked. We only had to plug the fridge in and we could keep...

Stayed here on a work trip. Room was clean as for what could be done by the maids. The furniture is pretty worn. They do have free wifi an free breakfast. Room was over all ok for the price. I would stay again if needed.

Picked this place for an overnight stay driving south. Price was listed as an Internet special so I thought I would be getting more for the money. The desk staff was very friendly. The internet worked well. The area seemed quiet and safe. There was a restaurant across the driveway so that was a plus The room had 2 double...

Outside looks presentable. The room was nasty. Sheets were dirty. Pillows had stains all over them. Refrigerator full of rancid water left from defrost. Flys all over the room. Snack papers left in the floor from last poor person to stay here. We were so tired I went out to my car and pulled my dogs blanket and sheet and...

We arrived at this econolodge rather tired.......just wanted to crash for the night on our next leg south. The room was fairly neat, but could use a bit more housekeeping to be okay. Bed linens were clean, towels fluffy........ that being said, I will stay at another econolodge. The breakfast area is spacious and clean, with plenty of seating.

Stayed at this hotel on July 29. I was looking for something reasonable for the night, a decent bed and shower. Initially it seemed to fit the bill. I unloaded and then quickly left to go get something to eat. Settling in later, I realized than the room was not very clean, the door was hard to close tightly and...

At first glance the lobby looked nice. The front desk person was very polite. The room's cleanliness was so-so. After bringing in our luggage when I closed the door I noticed you could see daylight all around the door. Even after I locked all the locks I could still giggle the door. The "free" breakfast was just so-so. So I...

We stopped at the Econolodge late last Saturday. Asked if they took dogs and if they had 2 rooms. "Yes, we have 2 rooms" so we checked in and were given the keys. THEN, she said, "You don't have a pet, do you?" Well, yes, we do. That's why we asked if you take dogs. "Sorry, those aren't pet rooms!"...
