Been travelling across states for 5 weeks. All great experiences until tonight, our 2nd last night in USA. The room reeked of smoke, no power . Requested another room. No apology or anything. Given another room. It was worse..more smoky, missing most light bulbs, and no light switches worked. Afraid to stay here with family Woman at front desk (BS)...

Stayed one night both going and returning for a trip because of the low price, arriving late, leaving early and they accepted pets. It wasn't even worth the $44 price - burn holes in blankets, smoky smell in non-smoking room, baseboard coming away from the wall, ceilings with large cracks and broken plaster and leak stains, old food left in...

This hotel was cheap and okay for the price. The room was clean however the blankets on both beds had multiple cigarette burns. And we were in a non smoking room. We just needed a place to sleep so it got the job done.

We were traveling to Nashville, IND and needed a place to stay. Found the Econo Lodge on google and it was priced affordably. The room was clean, the mattress was newer and comfortable, motel had free wifi and we had no complaints.

The hotel over all isn't bad but could be better. There's not a pool so I'm not sure why that's being advertised. I also was using the bathroom and the ceiling fell on my head so take from that what you will. Lol

My friends and I decided to stay at this hotel during our weekend trip to hit the Bourbon Trail. I booked a room here because it was so cheap and I completely understand why. The hotel sits back behind a gas station and strip club and there is no shortage of shady guests wondering around. The room we stayed in...

The place was filthy, stunk like rotten socks/cigarettes/vomit, and there seemed to be some "shady residents" close to our room! My daughter booked this trip for us as a Mother's Day getaway - and our room was such a disgrace and disappointment! They had very limited towels, washcloths, etc. The lamps were broken, the curtain rod was broken, the shower...

You stay at Econo Lodge to save money not to enjoy accommodations that cost 40% more. We did save about $40 but cannot rave about the facility. Rule #1 you get what you pay for. I noticed the leather (?) sofa in the lobby was torn but I figured I wasn't meeting a client there so what the heck. Room...

My room had obviously had water damage in the bethroon from the room above it. The repair wasn't even funny. The floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed and the bathroom mirror had serious problems. Doesn't even get one star in my opinion. The free breakfast wasn't anything to write home about. Needs a serious remodeling.
