After a horrible exp with a neighboring hotel to this place. I called the Econo Lodge and was greeted by Ashley who was extremely helpful for a Friday afternoon. She was able to book my room over the phone and allowed me to pay in cash upon arrival. We found the hotel to be a little dated but still clean....

Very inexpensive and all we needed was a bed and a bathroom. Pros: very cheap. Comfortable bed, very quiet. Convenient location off highway. Cons: Where do I begin? Upon checking, had to ring a bell and wait for desk clerk. After 5 minutes, rang again (LOUDLY) and he finally showed up. Pleasant, but not too bright. Had trouble finding our...

Let me start by saying that this is a reasonably priced, no frills motel. However, I was surprised at how nice my stay here was. The room and bed were comfortable and quiet. Very clean! I went for a swim in the indoor pool, and although it was small, shallow and needed some repairs, the temperature was good and I...

Stayed here for a soccer tournament, and if everything else wasnt already booked, we wouldve moved hotels. We tried to save money on a room, but will no longer do that. The front desk was unprofessional, and everything we tried to request was quickly forgotten. The nonsmoking room smelled like an ashtray, to the point we had to open the...

The one pro to give this property for the night we stayed is that it was surprisingly quiet. The cons add up to never-staying-here-again! No security at back door -- literally anyone could walk right on in. Room had only the standard deadbolt -- security chain or bar lock. Ugly and mis-matched furniture. Only one electrical outlet available to charge...

Everyone was very nice. The room was clean. The choice members discount was very helpful. The only problem was with the television. The cables were too heavy on one side and all of them had a lean to them. Otherwise very nice.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our trip to Chicago. We found a cheap rate and figured we are just there to sleep before getting back on the road. We arrived approximately 11:30 p.m. and upon arriving we noticed it was a very basic room. No clock or any other items you normally find. We had just fallen...

The pool is not the place you wanna go. Water is cloudy and the pool is only a bit over 3 feet deep. The hotel rooms have outlets in very inconvenient spots directly behind the beds. The bathroom door lock did not work either. There was also a pocket knife hidden within the AC unit that we stumbled upon. The...
