    Nice pillows.

    There were many signs that the hotel was undergoing renovations in the lobby, but room bathrooms were very dingy looking, bordering the question of if they’re actually clean.

    Cheap, decent, clean enough for what you pay.

    Pillows were soft, room was clean. Directv is convenient.

    The bed was stiff as a board. I like firm beds, but those mattresses were like planks.

    I needed a place to stay in my move across the country. I was pulling a trailer and had a good estimate of timing for when to stop to rest for the night but got behind schedule. I called around 5pm in hopes of being able to switch my stay to somewhere earlier along my drive but could not because I had booked online. I then let the staff know I would not be in until about 3am. Apparently no record of this phone call was written down or communicated to the person working the desk because once I finally arrived at 3:45am, they had already marked me as a no show and did not want to let me in my room. After some convincing, I got my key to finally get some rest so I could take off to continue my drive again the next day.

    Great value

    The front desk staff was always so kind. This was my second time staying at this hotel.

    It served our purpose of a reasonable place to stay for the night.

    Nothing,really. You don't expect more from an Econo Lodge.
