              The receptionist was efficient and handled things quickly. Internet didn't work on arrival, but he was quick to attend the issue. There is a fridge and ice available.

              There were dirty towels in the bathroom, and in general the clean towels didn't look that clean. The bed however was surprisingly comfortable! We saw two bugs in the room, so if you, like us, do not have pets, stay somewhere else! We were not aware it was a pet friendly hotel and any room can be used for them, and this may be the reason of the bugs.

            • Family with children
              2.4

              Nothing - I would not board my pets in a place this dirty. Worse than bad!

              "Non- smoking" room reeked of smoke! Only 2 bath towels in a 2queen bed room - no phone in room - took 3 cell phone calls & a threat to call the police to get the kids running & screaming in the halls at 2am quiet - room filthy & a/c not working properly. Water leaks in common area ad bad that you are forced to walk thru dirty water that splashes ob you. I expected decent (read no-frills basic) accommodations based on the Booked.net rating but what we got was not just sub-par it was sone place I would nor board my pets. Our luggage still smells of smoke. It was so bad that although we were kept up till 2am by the noise we were out of there by 9:30. I have never booked with Booked.net in the past but if this place was considered decent I would worry.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Location was good, room clean, comfortable bed.

              First room we checked into had strong smoke odor, so we were moved to another room. Second room much better. Continental breakfast was the bare minimum to be called that - coffee, juice, danish - that was it. Could have used more pillows on bed.

            • Single
              6.6

              Location is good and the room is a good size.

              Bathroom could be cleaner.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The room was a good size with a table and mini fridge. The bathroom/dressing area was clean and included a hair dryer. We don't spend much time in our room, but appreciate a clean, comfortable place after a busy day.

              A larger "continental" breakfast would be good. There were juice and sweet rolls available, but fruit and non-sweet bread choices would make the complimentary breakfast better.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              We liked the location, the price, and courtesy of staff. We were able to complete our business in a timely manner.

              I had place to sleep

              The rooms have bad odor people are fighting outside room and dont let u sleep we kept wakeing up from all the noise!!!!!

              7.0

              Clean, quiet rooms

              They warned us at our late check-in that there would be renovations outside our rooms that would begin at 9:00am. We told them 'no problem' as we expected to be up by then. However, the renovations began at 7:00am which woke us up! Not happy.

            • Couple
              7.8

              When we got the hotel, they said they could not find our reservation in the system, but since we brought the confirmation letter from the website that they would honor the reservation. The outside wasn't much to look at but the inside was wonderful, the room was clean and looked like they had recently undated. The TV had a large amount of cable channels they even had complementry breakfast and fee WI FI. It was way more then I expected for the price.

              The only down side was they couldn't of had better pillows and more towels in the room, other then that I really enjoyed my stay.

            • Single
              4.6

              Inexpensensive rates. The bed was comfortable.

              They did not have my reservation and the room was dirty.

            • Single
              8.8

              Check in with reservations was swift and easy. The location was great. The room was clean enough. For the price, the accomodations were great!

              Housekeeping needed to pay more attention to behind the furniture and above the door frames. There were some big dust bunnies there.

            • Mary Garwood

              3.6

              There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room which I did not use. The staff was friendly. But I will not be using an econolodge again if I can help it.

              Considering the facts, holiday weekend and I had waited until the last minute to book, this was the best I could do. But for $86, you would at least expect Clean! There was only one queen bed and the bedding was old and stiff. The two pillows were sad. The mattress was a pillowtop but was upside-down and showed signs of having had bedbugs in the past.
