Rooms were large and clean; desk staff were nice, as was the lady servicing the breakfast; there were hard boiled eggs available, in addition to the continental offerings. Parking was plentiful. Location was easy to get to, right off the interstate (I-81), though quite a ways from the center of town. A Perkins Restaurant is right in front of the... More

We recently spent 2 weekends, 2 nights each, at the EconoLodge Arena. We highly recommend it. Both weekends the check-in was very easy and our room was clean and an comfortable size. The breakfast was very good with juices, yogurt, cereal, donuts, bagels, toast, and make your own belgian waffles. Will definitely stay there again.

We have been staying at this hotel for years, and have never had a bad stay. It is easily accessible from Route 81.

I stayed here for 3 nights, it was a wonderful experience for a very affordable price. The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in, and the blankets are nice and warm, not those scratchy cheap ones you get at other hotels! Very friendly housekeeping and front desk staff. A $20 Uber ride to the airport.
