Stay away.

The smell of cigarettes in the room was like some body just smoked there. They change us to another one less nasty. Free breakfast but there is nothing to eat. The worse for 130$ per night.

Awful! If we had not paid in advance I would have NOT stayed there!

Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, disgusting, not like the photos
What a shame - it ruined a perfect Masters Vacation. The place is a dump. The carpet is ruined, splatter marks of stain on the mirror, the tile was stained, the sofa was stained, the bed lumpy, and there were holes on the wall where the tv most have fallen and was put back up. It is in a perfect location and needs to be renovated. What a disgrace - I would NEVER EVEN CONSIDER STAYING AT AN ECON LODGE AGAIN. Our room #121 - check it out yourselves!

You get what you pay for. We just needed a place to crash and it did the trick. Also had several boxes shipped to hotel and they helped us with that.

Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

The hotel is across from the Medical Center so if that's where you are going, this hotel is for you. The room we stayed in was smoking but you could not tell. It was very clean and the linens were nicer than some more pricier places. The decor was simple and they actually had REAL cable instead of the usual 15 channels that hotels give you. I felt safe here and there was no way that if you were not staying at the hotel you could just roam the premises. The attendant, XYZ, was very nice and accomadating. There were others from our track club staying there and we all were pleased.

Good Choice

I booked this hotel because my usual hotel was full. I am glad I did. The location was very convenient. The staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is a little dated but the room was clean and very nice. I did not feel uneasy at all staying here. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

A Pleasant stay

I stayed here because the motel that I usually stay at down the street was full. My room was fine and it was really nice to have a computer in the lobby. Also, because I was going to the hospital the room rate was much cheaper. I was disappointed that there was no pool but otherwise my stay was pleasant.
