Property was undergoing remodel, so good to see some updates were being made. It was about what you can expect for the price we paid.

Valerie, the manager, was genuinely warm and friendly. Warned me about the heat advisory for the next day and welcomed me with a little snack box. The room was modern with wood floors and plentiful floor space. Room amenities: coffeemaker, micro-fridge, microwave and hair dryer. Full breakfast: Bacon, biscuits & gravy, yogurt and more. Small fitness center: a treadmill and a couple of multipurpose weight machines Only drawback was the extreme dampness of the room. It might have been due to the extreme heat and humidity that day, but a couple of earlier reviews mentioned dampness. The A/C was on full blast when we checked in. Too cold so we turned it to fan. By the time we went to bed, we noticed the damp stickiness. When I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, there was a sheen of water covering the entire floor and every flat surface. At my next stop, I had to toss the contents of my suitcase in the dryer.

The facility is dated and let’s be honest it’s the econolodge so it is what it is. NOW LETS TALK ABOUT WHERE IT MADE A DIFFERENCE!!!! My family and I were in town for a soccer tournament. Check in was pleasant. The lobby was clean and smelt great. They offer a full complimentary breakfast which was pretty decent. The attendant “Sherry” was the most pleasant and accommodating person. We had great conversations and she tried her best to accommodate anything I asked for.

The room was clean. Bed was comfortable. The building looks and is old but it was good for a 1 night stay while traveling. Wish there was a arm chair in the room.
