On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to let you know how delighted we were to receive your kind words of praise. You sure put a smile on my face this morning.

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel with our small dog. I'm somewhat of a hotel snob and had always envisioned Econo Lodges to be ones to avoid - expecting see-through towels, disrepair, and questionable housekeeping. This was a last-minute weekend trip and the reviews on TripAdvisor drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised to see that...

Once again we stayed at this hotel. The perfectly cleaned room passed every test. Dirt was removed from every high and low area. Picture frames, mirrors etc. Nice new touch was the much needed data ports near the bed for cell phone charging etc. Breakfast was a little space without fruit or yogurts but it's an econo lodge not a...

Friendly staff, clean room and comfortable beds. Great water pressure in the shower too! The only items that kept me from giving 5 out of 5 was the musty smell in the elevator and how stuffy our room was when we arrived. Opening the window for a bit fixed that though. It is also very easy to get to. We...

We stayed at this hotel end December and gave it 5 points, and they deserved it. This time around, not so good. The rooms are fine, some little hiccups as others noted, but quite okay for the money. The breakfast however was nothing like before. The only protein was a cold hard boiled egg. There were no waffles or pancakes....

Stayed at the Econo Lodge on our way home from Florida. The people were excellent and I recommend staying here. The room was clean as was the rest of the hotel. It is pet friendly if you need it, but not much room to take the dog out. That would be the only slightly negative comment. We will stay there...
