Overall Score5.0/ 5
I didn't like that I wasn't told by the operator I booked the room with that there was a pet deposit and room deposit ahead of time even though I thoroughly asked ahead. But overall it was a good experience the room was clean. Everyone at the front desk was very kind. I would use them again.

"This place is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed ar."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
What a dump! Shower curtain was molded, steel piece stuck out the side of the bed frame and cut my ankle, glad I had taken bandaids, the beds were made up with queen size sheets and we slept on regular beds, towels were so small and rough. The three nights I stayed, no one came to empty the garbage, I did it. We were not offered clean linens, I grabbed wash cloths from the housekeeping cart. The pool was an eye sore, it was so nasty. The website said ?fitness center, coffee pot in room, continental breakfast, we had neither of these. We went out each morning for breakfast, at Betty's. I highly recommend ?Betty's?. I overpaid for the dump I stayed in. Website offered each night at 110.00 for three nights = 330.00. I was charged 444.00. Helen is a beautiful place and I hope to go back sometime, but will definitely be staying somewhere else instead of the Econo Lodge.
