My wife wanted EconoLodge but I wanted a non chain place. MISTAKE! The bed was comfy. And the nice Chinese lady at the desk was cheerful and her little dog, Tutu was very cute. And that's it for the good points. Our room, we were told, had just been cleaned by the maid. I want her job since she gets... More
