The owners/staff live in a house overseeing the lodge. I had a friend come visit me for what was supposed to be a couple hours. She was there maybe 30 minutes and I got a call on the room phone from the management telling me that she needed to leave and couldn’t stay or else I would be kicked out with no refund (at 10pm). She was never going to stay the night, she was just visiting me and giving me support as the reason for my visit was to see my mom who was in the hospital. I would not reccomend this place to anyone. It is clean but they watch your every move it seems like and are not very nice.

Economical choice

Pros: Rooms were clean and the bed was very nice. Breakfast options were great. Location.
Cons: Put out of state workers for tree's at another section of the Lodge. Extra blanket and more locks on doors.
The room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately I had neighbors who partied and were disrespectful of their surroundings. I did not feel safe because of it. Would like to stay at Econo Lodge again but will probably not be on the ground floor and management needs to be mindful of Out of state workers who do not care about the rules because there time at the site is short. Maybe put workers at a section just for them so as to not bother others who are trying to sleep and are there for work or vacation...

1 night stay for Wedding in town

We stayed 1 night for a wedding nearby. All hotels in the area were upwards of $250+ for the single night. Our stay was $89 for the night. We knew it wasn't going to be the most appealing place to stay, but it was good for being on a budget. We stayed on the second floor (of you're going to be wearing heels, bring a second pair of shoes--flats-- just to walk on the stairs with. They have tiny holes in the steps and awkward for walking). First impression of room--aftermath of a spring break week that just occupies teenagers. Updates didn't seem to be on their minds. Didn't smell clean or fresh like a new room would be. It had a stale/stagnant odor to it. I had brought our own pillows and blankets to sleep with with the notion to ask for fresh sheets when we got there. I called down and was questioned why I wanted the sheets and what was wrong with mine on the bed already. I stated I would just prefer a new set. She was hesitant but said ok. I replaced sheets and pillow cases myself. The room had a chair in it that was reminiscent of the 70s--yellow velvet almost. It looked to have just been getting dirtier by the year. We placed the old sheet over it before sitting down on it. The bathroom was very minimal. The toilet was replica of a school toilet with flushing handle and all--& just as loud. My husband showered&put a towel on the bottom before using. The mattress was as hard as cement. The room was easy on the wallet, but not appealing cleanliness wise. Get what you pay for.
