Not that great
You get what you pay for and it wasn’t much staying here. Bathroom was not very clean and the shower rod did nothing to keep the water inside. Was disappointed the pool was not up and working too.

the people at the Econo Lodge were very pleasant. however the condition of the hotel is older and although it's been kept up well everything is outdated and a little bit dirty.

Had to walk through snow to get in and out of the building. Parking barely plowed. This was a couple days after a heavy snow fall

Don’t expect much
I guess it’s okay for the price but the floors were gross. My socks were filthy 10 minutes after being in the room. The workers are rude and will interrupt reception about their schedules while guest are waiting to check in. The room had holes in the walls and the WiFi doesn’t work. Would of just watched some cable but that kept going out too. The manager was nice and working harder than everyone else you could hear employees from the front desk. My tv isn’t calibrated so you can’t use the remote and you have to use the button underneath the button you want use to get the tv to work. But again it was okay for the price ! Decent shower pressure. Best if you just sleep and keep it moving if you choose to stay here. No WiFi no entertainment no pool not very clean and difficult staff. Hope the best for the manager he was sweet

Friendly & Informative Employee & No Complaints :)
Just did a night to Myself thanks to a friend for my birthday. Check in was easy, I booked online with & so far great experience price was decent, room was clean. They do require a deposit of $40 which now can be cash or they use your card but that takes 3-5+ days to return to you.

Breakfast was not provided as it was advertised , not even coffee! Expedia nor the hotel wanted to do a ything about that! The listing should be updated! The room itself had missing lightbulb over the sink, cobwebs, and the bathroom smelled of cigarettes even tho it was a non smoking room. And there was hate speech cut i to the paint by the back stairwell. And we used the stairs a lot as there was no power the last day of our stay.
