Their pool was nice and clean!!! I won't mind coming back next time I visit :-) Their room was clean and the air condition work pretty good. Room service made sure I had everything I needed to feel comfortable (towels and etc.).

Well this is the worst experience I have ever had at a Choice Hotel. Had numerous problems to many to list. Just stay away!!!! It is all about the money. They have little respect for their customers and felt like i was discriminated against because of my race. Make other choices while in the Lake City area.

Room was clean. Hotel was reasonably priced. Staff needs some training in customer service. Hotel is adequate for those passing through for one night. Did not stay late enough in the morning to see what they offered for breakfast. Lobby was small, so i can assume that it is not more than danish and coffee.

Were passing through on the way to Florida and needed a place to spend the night. Everything was full but this place had a room. The front desk person was very professional friendly. The big thing is that Choice Hotels have taken over this chain and the place did not resemble the old Econo Lodge place once you got inside....

We have always stayed at the Red Roof at this exit (which seems to have disappeared), but we're so glad we found the EconoLodge!! The pet area is perfect - grassy, shady, well away from traffic and stocked with pick-up bags and a trash receptacle!! The motel itself is older, but seemed very clean and well maintained. There is a...

The location of this hotel is perfect for ease of finding it and most every restaurant you would want is within 2 or 3 miles. The rooms are nicely appointed and are clean. The towels in this Econo Lodge are soft and fluffy. There are pillows on each very comfortable bed that vary in size and firmness - - can...

On my trip to WI my son and I stopped here for one night. I found a roach in the bathroom! I almost packed up and left immediately but we were tired. I refused to make coffee or eat at their breakfast knowing they had roaches.

We were late trying to book in Alachua, FL for a work trip and since I use Choice Hotels most of the time, we booked here. It's an older property, but clean and the room we had was better than I expected. Bedding was comfortable, bathroom was a bit dated but clean and overall it was a good stay for...

We needed a last minute room to accommodate 5 people so we had to stay here. It definitely is a motel not a hotel. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly however it was just not a comfy hotel room. The outdated exterior matched the outdated mauve carpet. The beds did have nice pillows and clean white sheets, however...
