Recent guest reviews

The bedding was clean, no bedbugs. The sink and shower were clean. The toilet bowl was clean but the outside of the toilet was not. The floors were not swept, especially in the bathroom, debris kept getting stuck to the bottom of my feet as I walked around. No sweeping was done behind the door or in the corners....they didn't even look under the sink because in the morning, while looking for a trash bin, I found a pair of black footie socks from a previous guest under the sink in the corner!!! The lobby was closed off and the windows were so dirty you could hardly look through them. The security window by which you slid your ID card was also filthy, as was the office behind it. The outside stairs to the 2nd floor had been taped off with yellow caution tape, then pulled free, leaving the tape hanging from either side where it had been tied. The concrete walkway to the rooms was dirty with spills, bugs, dirt and filth. The surrounding area had trash, tall weeds and old spills of who knows what liquids (vomit? Urine? beverages?)

I'm so glad you wanted a review. Orbitz should not list this property. This hotel is so very dirty, inside and out. Even the towels are stained. I think they were never changed from the previous guest. The disposable plastic cups provided, were stuck together (why).The reception area is a little window on the side of the building that has no cover for the person registering. I got rained on, splashed by a car going by. The lady registering made me wait until she finished her cigarette in front of the building then told me to comeback at 3. Very rude.

Very dirty and garbage all over the place, couldn’t stay at the hotel because rooms had smoke smell

Rooms bare minimum; looked like blood on wall; carpet questionable; soft, saggy mattress; loud fighting in parking lot at 2:30AM; free breakfast advertised, but NO breakfast and no one in office when I checked out.

The place was a disaster, you get what you pay for, be warned,,,,,,,, we had no garbage can in the room had to ask for one, the cable wire was not plugged into tv, it was cut an hardly reached the tv, we had to rig it up to work, floors sticky, cob webs all over ceiling......... so sad......never going here again, tried to save a few bucks, but, no, never again, I'd rather pay more somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Service wasn't bad, but the "non-smoking room" I reserved smelled of cigarettes and even though everything in the room was tidy the bathroom did not look like it had been thoroughly cleaned in a while. There were hairs all over the shower walls and tub and something brown on the toilet handle. It would have been an alright stay, had it not been for the cleanliness of the place.

Very trashy. Literally, overflowing garbage cans and trash everywhere outside and surrounding the property. Floors weren’t vacuumed, with visible crumbs and stains throughout. One comforter had a hole burned into it. Cobwebs on the ceiling. Cracked walls and toilet. Stained bathtub. Completely disgusting.

It was dirty and it wreaked of cigarettes, when i requested a non smoking room. The bed, walls, carpet, toilet was dirty also

Dirty. Apparent mold. In bad condition. Pretty much falling apart. Slow shuttle service too with broken seat belts and the driver not wearing any.

Had low expectations - booked this hotel as it was cheap and close to the airport where I had to catch an early flight. But the bathroom floor was not mopped and was disgusting.

I cancelled as soon as i walked in. Tbe young lady was very rude and nasty. As soon as you wked in it smelled. There was no cot that i was promised. With a very nasty attitude. All she was worrying about was the man who worked for her. It was horrible. If i was orbitz i wouldnt put my name on the hotel to help book them it would be a embarrassment for orbitz to book anyone in this hotel. Also the Quaility inn walk over to that hotel n the woman at the desk looked like she was high out of her gead. Asked them about a cot that orbitz said they orovide all i got was you will have to walk the halls to see if there was one there. Cleanliness was horrible. N i better not had to pay for the Econo Lodve i better get that money back. Or i will going after irbitz n the hotel. Only reason there was just to sleep cause my grandson has cancer n we were going to chop hospital in the morning for a extense surgery. By the timewe had to go out on our own in Philiadelia not knowing the city ourself we never laid our heads down till close to 1 in tbe morni g. It was hortible.

They sold my reserved room, triple charged me & the place was beyond dirty. Customer service was terrible. My problems didn’t get fixed, I’ll havta fight they the credit card company.

Nice room, however it could be a little cleaner. Comfortable bedrooms, we just stayed for a night.

Room had smell of smoke, but was clean and well supplied. There was trash on the landing that had not been collected!

Don't even think of staying here. The place has not been properly deep cleaned in at least 10 years. After walking around with my cotton socks, the bottoms were filthy because the carpet was so dirty. Orbitz needs to take this place off their list of choices.
