We were told some rooms have been redone, but we didn't get one and I will not use this Econo again. Not only because it badly needs cleaning up and redoing but because all rooms are up the stairs. For those of you who are looking for a quiet place this is not it, as a railroad runs by the...

When I spoke to the owners about a problem with theft in the room of a minor item, they called me a liar, and proceeded to yell and berate me. Told me that they didn't have time for this and I was free to call the police. I have never been treated this way at any hotel and was astonished...
