It is run down, the staff does not care, the pool was green, the toilet seat was about to fall off, there was used linen in the bathroom, TV remote did not work and they had no others, maint...

We walked in to rent a room and they allowed us to view the room before we rented and we loved it at firs sight. However, looks are soooooo deceiving. The phone did not work. We needed more towels for the pool, and the front desk told us they had NO extra towels. Once we were ready for bed, we...

This hotel advertises a restaurant and bar, they do not exist, and have not for a long while. The building itself is in bad repair, from pieces falling off the front of the building, to the paint coming off the walls, wobbly toilets, and I just about lost a shoe due to the sticky floor in the breakfast area.

Ok, so my wife and I drive from Canton Texas to Alexandria to attend a funeral. We were tired and after passing a couple of pretty nice looking motels, stopped here. I should have known from the price of 55 bucks it was too good to be true. The room we got was in the back on the second floor....

Very Nice Friendly Staff, it isnt the newest hotel on the blocks but the room were clean and I cant say enough about the staff, they went above and beyond from my wife who is disabled. I really appreciate the Econo Lodges hospitality.

The images are not accurate the place smells, is filthy, and abandoned. The people who leave positive reviews are probably used to staying in what most consider to be low class motels. Choice Hotels should disassciate themselves with this franchised hotel. It is bottom of the barrel. I stayed in MOTEL 6's better than this. The staff here doesn't speak...

We arrived late at night after being on the road all day. The room was nasty! Mold and peeling paint/paper on the ceilings and walls. Fan in bath didn't work, AC didn't work, just blew hot air and had mold all over it. Beds were bowed, almost folded, and had dirty sheets and covers. Rust was on anything with metal....
