The dog and I were on a move across the country. This place was quiet and convenient with a good rate for a pet-friendly motel. No security fears at all. There was the strong odor of cigar outside my non-smoking room, but didn't enter the room. Comfortable, if dated, room. Internet and breakfast were very convenient.

The hallways smell real bad, you can't understand a word they say, and it wasn't overly clean. Service was not very good and they are very rude. I'd rather drive the extra 2 miles to go to days inn...

I stay 40 to 50 nights a year in a hotel. This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. Run down dirty and overall unsecure. Door had open gap with a clear view inside the room from outside even when latched and locked. Hung towels around door for privacy. Seems like a pay by the hour place.... More

Stayed here this past weekend. This is a clean, basic, standard Econo Lodge. This property meets all the standards for the brand. Check in was smooth, polite, and they even called my room a little while later to check on me and see if I needed anything. Bathroom was clean with adequate towels, the bed had fresh sheets, and there... More

We had nice clean rooms, but horrible, impersonal service. After getting my children settled in for the night( we had adjoining rooms, and could barely get the doors open), we went into the bathrooms. One of them, the door wouldn't shut at all. I called the front desk, and she was unhelpful. The next morning i had car trouble. I... More

My husband and I stayed there in August 2012, and we will never go there again. The hallway smelled & was dirty. MUST WEAR SHOES in the room. If not, your feet WILL stick to the floor. The sheets were stained and falling apart. The mattress was not the best.

I have low expectations of places like this. It's supposed to be bare-bones, but this was ridiculous. There's some kind of odor in the dimly-lit corridors, and the walls and doors are so thin that you can easily hear your neighbors' conversations, fights, sexual escapades... The exterior isn't properly lit at night, and it's in a remote part of town.... More

I have NEVER been more disgusted by a hotel before. There were bobby pins and hair all over the bed frame, and burn holes in the comforters. The entire place smelled, couldn't quite place what the smell was, but it wasn't good. The lock on the door could have been broken quite easily. I wouldn't even sit on either of... More
