This is one of the worst places I've ever seen. The pictures on trip advisor are completely different than what the facility actually looks like. When you check in the area where the host sits was very dirty. Paper and dirty dishes all over the back counter, and black trash bags in the corner. Then you get to the room....

Very out of date. We booked a 2 king bed with my parents to go mushroom hunting. Our room wasn't as terrible as other reviews have said they've had. Overhead florescent lighting did not work. Couldn't get any channels on the tv. Peeling wallpaper everywhere. Pool permanently closed. Very overpriced for the quality of the room.

The worst motel ever. FILTHY. Vomit on the wall. Mice ran through the room from the adjoining room, from under the locked door. Said there was a pool, yes but no water in it. Said there was a phone, yes but wasn't attached to the wall and no cord. No smoke detector. I had to dust out numerous cobwebs inside...

I have stayed at this hotel several times before,it is cheap place to sleep. The last time I stayed my son dropped his Beats headphones, we didn't notice until we got home. I immediately called and was relieved that they had been found and the owner had them at the front desk. I was promised they would be shipped right...

Don't stay here! it was very dirty, had what looks like blood on the walls, beds were sloppily made and sheets were full of hair, and stinky the bathroom was filthy with spiders in the corner and soap stains. We ended up getting a different place.

I was disappointed. Immediate impression was a dump. Missing light bulb in BR, broken ironing board, toilet was movable. Loud heater/fan. Breakfast good very old. Shrunken oranges, soft apples and stale bagels. Cream cheese left out, not kept cool. Door frames coming off. Everything needs painting and fixing. Good point was it was fairly clean, but no coffee in rooms.

Hotel is dated, our room was passable. I burnt myself in our room with the coffee machine. When I kindly told the front desk how it happened, the person was extraordinarily rude. I will never forget how she made me feel. It was unbelievable. Will never go back because of this.

Be carefull you'll get what you pay for!! rooms smell like smoke no smoke alarm, no bath fan, minimal toiletries, barking dogs allowed, & you'll pay more than what is on your reservation because it says estimated total. Never again @ a Econo Lodge anywhere!!
