    Never again
    This is about the EconoLodge in Alexandria, LA on Notth MacArthur Drive. The only staff member that I can be positive about was the maintenance man. I had to listen to employees complaining about customers while I am standing there. There were never any towels and when there were they were dingy and stained. The other staff were not helpful or very polite. The facilities were in disrepair and dirty. There were bugs in our room. People who were not checked into the hotel were allowed to use the pool and they came in car loads. The TV didn't even have a cable wire to connect to the cable service. I was constantly having to call to have something taken care of. It was just one thing after another and a terrible experience.
