My Dad and I stayed here for Penn State game, and I bought him a team polo shirt as a gift. When we got home, we realized we left the polo in the motel room. One phone call to the front desk, and they noted that a housekeeper had found it, turned it in and they mailed it back to... More

We only wanted to stay for 1 night so we did not book it in advance.. We just simply couldnt bare the stink of the rooms. It was written that no more pets allowed in those rooms but the smell was still there in each one of them. Plus we found blood on the pillows....whatever. The lady was very kind... More

The hotel services our needs, they take pets. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. Location is central, would recommend for one or two nights......prices could be a little lower. I would recommend to stay here.

Older facility, close to town, not too bad. Price was OK. Room was clean, bathroom was clean, shower had hot water, Internet was OK. Desk person was knowledgeable about restaurants. Facility was well-lit and clean outside. Parking lot is ample for motor homes. Close to Freeway.

Didn't book there since 2011and it was lower in price then the surrounding hotels. First the room was fairly clean. Tv reception was poor- get only 10 channels and not the major networks either. WiFi was good but didn't stream anything so don't know about that. Bed was hard and kept getting up every morning very stiff and sore- very... More

So we stayed there for a month while we were looking for a house! The room smelled like cigarettes and mold. Sink was leaking. I told management that I needed another room cause my daughter couldn't breath inside that room anymore, so the older woman manger told me that she decided to move us to a smaller room that was...

I can't say I was super impressed by the Econo Lodge, because...well, let's face it, it's an Econo Lodge, and you get what you pay for. That being said, for the price, it's not that bad. There are beds and pillows which are satisfactory, towels that are satisfactory, and a shower and sink and toilet that all work. There's a... More

As stated by others this hotel needs updating but then it wouldn't be such a good deal. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean and desk clerk helpful. We stayed in room on side and it was very noisy. You can hear the traffic passing behind the room through the air conditioner opening. The air conditioners are very noisy and we... More

This hotel was dated, overhead tiles missing, cozy beds, near shopping, good breakfast, and nice staff. Wifi was not good. TV was old and only 30 channels. No pool. Some rooms have mold. Bathroom was a little yuck, and there was hair in the bathtub.

It was very reasonable however it is bare bones for the room. We did have everything we needed to stay but it is not fancy. The coffee pot looked a little dirty inside. Wood at doorway to bathroom was rotted at the bottom.
