“Worst ever...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2011

For a 5 1/2 hour drive, you expect to be comfortable once you check in a hotel. Unfortunately that's not the case. Prior to entering their office, I saw 5 guys loitering around hotel, smoking and looking at me in a weird way. The receptionist was nice and gave the keys to my room. As I enter my room, the smell was funky. The bedroom is disgusting. The beddings are filthy, it seems that they did not change it for months. ( the white color of linen is now brown). The bolt lock was also busted. Disappointed, I seek out the receptionist for a new bed sheet set but he only gave a sheet and told me that they are still washing it. Thinking of my safety, comfort and peace of mind I decided to check out immediately and transfer to another hotel . For 50 bucks it is not even worth it.

stayed at the hotel at the last minute call night before twice to make sure to let them know we were suppose to arrive between 2-4am just wanted a bed to crash before we headed at Atlantic city, they said "not a problem" until i got there we madegood time and arrived at 1:30 am.

as we walk to the door the night manager was locking all doors would not look at us i knocked on the window he asked me "what!!!" i said i have a reservation he said " your to late" WHAT i was trying to tell him i had called twice the night before, until i said I'm calling head quarters 24 hour number!!!!! that's when he finally let only me in would not let my friend in told her to say outside in the cold, took him 30 mins to give me keys i was the only person there,

beds were o.k comfy room was cleaned but rest of hotel run down but for 50 bucks can't complain, but with the rudeness of the night manager sorry to say but i do not like to threaten anybody to get what i paid for...

First off, you're paying $50 for the night. You certainly get what you pay for. It wasn't a BAD hotel experience, as we knew what to expect. If you're in town for a concert or whatever, where you won't be in your room much, it's not a bad gig. Room itself was clean, but the bathroom wasn't the cleanest. Ammenities worked ok, but not outstanding. Shower didn't get real hot, but it was warm enough. Coffee maker didn't work.

Bottom line : It's not a great hotel by any means, but for $50, what do you expect? I would still give it a thumbs up under the right circumstances.

my first stay at an econo lodge. I was very impressed. the rate was very inexpensive, and the staff was friendly and professional. i got my truly non-smoking room. internet power was excellent, and room was new. cant beat it for the price, got the travel center coupon. awesome deal.

Pros:
Cheap: $55+tax.
Relatively close to a big shopping center (a big movie theater, restaurants, target...)

Cons:
Breakfast ends at 9pm :(
No refrigerator.
Can hear coughs and TV noise from other rooms.

The sign of the hotel is next to a big road, but you have to drive for a while to reach the hotel from the sign.

Set in the darkness of hell, dim lit road traveling to hotel that was full of "pot holes. male host behind the counter was not very nice, but nice enough to get "one word answers" No coffee, snacks.

Dim parking lots where anyone could have jumped out of the darkness and cause damage to a human being that did not know how to protect themselves. three windows seen from outside had packing brown paper on them, one window had cracks all through it, and another all the furniture all atop the window, but people in the room.

The guest of the hotel looked as if they had been dropped off the "drug and street walker bus" The hall ways had lights hanging from the ceiling with exposed wires, the exit sign buzzed so loud that you could hear it two floors up!. THE LOCKS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DOORS VERY LOOSE. (how safe is this)

the hallways and rooms smelled of smoke, mold and dirt..you could smell urine near the snack machines,,gross, very gross.. I saw two mice, and I am not sure what else I was looking at, but it was dead by the outside door at the fire exit. never again
