This hotel was in really poor shape. The Hotels.com photos must be from years ago. We walked in and immediately back out of our room. I wish we had taken photos. The front desk said a refund would be administered online. The place was so bad we left to find other accommodations.
Here are some examples: The outside is in dire need of re-painting and maintenance. Every window of the room entrances has a metal pipe to secure the sliding glass from opening. The main light fixture in the room was an economy type fixture. The carpet where you enter into the bath area was so raveled that you could see the padding. There were heavily soiled stains on the furniture and carpet. The furniture had several scars of rough treatment. Heavy, unprofessional caulk beads lined the bathroom joints, corners, and abutments. The room had a smell of cigarette smoke masked by air freshener product (it was supposed to be a non-smoking room).
Where we ended up staying was less than a half-mile away, and only $20 more for an overnight rate. There were no bars in the windows. It was deemed as a 3 star hotel. The EconoLodge reported as a 2 star but is more like a 1star... maybe. The EconoLodge offered us to look at another room but I declined; I could see a bar in that window, too.
