    Good

    Good price. Good location. Small desk, WiFi included. Good size room.

    There was an office chair in front of the desk but the gas-lift was broken. This meant that whe I sat down, the desktop was at shoulder hight. I spoke to the person in attendance at reception and he came, acknowledged the problem and said he would take this up with the manager. -- Nothing ever happened and I made do with another, non-optimal chair. The rooms are noisy -- thin walls.

    When I arrived to check in, the lady behind the counter seemed mad about something. She was very snappy and snatched the card out of my hand and spoke very harsh to me. When I told her she didn't need to talk to me like that she proceeded to get louder and hostile. She was rolling her eyes at me when I asked to speak to a manager and tried to tell me he wasn't there, but he showed up moments later. I will never stay at a econolodge again because of this.

    I was very disappointed when I turned on the lights when I walked into the room, there were a roach crawling on top of the chair. ={ After a couple of hours of going to bed, we got woken up by inconsiderate guest who were talking loud outside our door, which continued throughout the night. Also, the guest next door constantly open their door, which made squeaky noise every time they open and closed the door. ={

    Convenient location.

    The mattress was not very good at all. The breakfast was marginal since the juice machine was out of order. Repairs appear to be made in the units without any attention to detail.

    We did have a nice jacuzzi tub in the room which I enjoyed

    Poor customer interaction from the female. The rooms were small and crowded, poorly arranged. The "continental" breakfast was the skimpiest I've ever encountered. Bagel with nothing to put on it, one choice of juice, no fruit. The rooms had coffee but just barely and the condiments were skimpy as well. Had trouble getting onto the free WiFi, ended up having to get a cable in order to access the web. The advertisement for the motel listed most of what I wanted in a motel, but was sorely dissappointing when you actually saw what you got. I would have gone up in price and stayed at a different motel had I known. This price range and accomodations are what I normally book for my trips, but this place is way below the average. I will never stay at any EconoLodge again.

    It's the worst hotel I've ever stayed in! I'd like to just list out two issues as below that will make all guests terrible and sick: 1. The female frontdesk (an Indian woman) is SO aggressive and not friendly, she has a serious attitude problem for the customers! 2. The security is the biggest concern you will have in the hotel - about 8 o'clock in the morning of my last day staying there, somebody tried to break into my room! He had unlocked our door and violently smashed my room door when we were still sleeping!!! Fortunately, the dead bolt is on, otherwise nobody knows what would happen! It's unbelievable and horrible to experience this! Afterwards, I saught help from the frontdesk, the female frontdesk was so slow and cold, she didn't give a damn to this!!!
