The company was experimenting with two quality tiers in the same facility. Very confusing. Overall quality of Econolodge is not good.

Stayed 1 night in Aug 2019


The sheets were clean, but the facility was vastly more run down and in bad shape than the picture posted. The mattress was almost beyond sleeping on do to the age and being worn out.
