It was a pleasant stay, employees were very kind and polite, and we didn't need much for a couple days. Walkable distance to metro and a few restaurants. AC kept room nice and cool. The room and lobby appeared clean and tidy. The biggest disappointment was the ultra thick pillows that gave us neck pain, and the lacking continental breakfast. The breakfast was simply granola bars, apple cinnamon muffins, and apples. No drinks. No hot tea or coffee. There is a vending machine for soda, but it didn't have water bottles. Rooms do have a fridge, but no microwave or coffee pot, so you can at least buy elsewhere and store cold drinks. Also caution there is no elevator.

I understand it's an Econo Lodge and not the Ritz Carlton, but this was bad. There was no one at the front desk to greet you. When she did get there, she was about as welcoming as a cobra. She informed us we had accidentally reserved a room with handicap accessibility, I said no problem and I'd happily move to another room if available. So we were put on the bottom floor. There was an unpleasant pile of debris in the hallway when we checked in around 4 pm. It was -still- on the floor the next morning when we left around 9 am. The room had a couple of bugs in it, there was not even a bar of soap in the bathroom and the bed was almost trampoline-like in quality. The "table" to eat at was smaller than most coffee tables. If you are claustrophobic, I recommend showering before you leave home. There was no breakfast in the morning (blamed on Covid, despite other hotels serving at least something in the mornings). When we left, the second lady at the desk was equally "pleasant", could not give us a receipt, and had absolutely no interest in whether or not there was anything wrong with our stay as she never bothered to ask. She took our keys, said -nothing- (not even a "good day") and went back to whatever she was doing prior. So if you want to be treated like a third class citizen, given rooms that probably amazed back in the 80's, with the cleanliness found in most kindergarten classrooms, then this is place the for you. Otherwise, I'd venture elsewhere.

The hotel was great for electronics. It had many electric and USB chargers, which for a family with 7 necessary devices was nice. However, the sink did not drain. The staff did not replace used toilet paper, and the staff seemed annoyed when we asked for some.

A decent value, but its address confuses the mapping system.
