What a plesant surprise

Stopped here on my way to State College. This Econo Lodge was a perfect place to stay for the night. It is a quick hop off the highway and very easy to find. It was well lit with easy parking.
The lady at the desk could not have been better. Friendly, helpful and when I said I was alone made sure I had an inside room. I originally asked for the back but she said that it is sometimes noisy because of the trucks so gave me a front facing room.
As for the room, it was terrific. New manufactured hardwood floors, granite counter tops in the bathroom and a bed that was more comfortable than my bed at home. My only wish was an extra blanket or quilt but the room was warm and it did not really need it. Morning staff was just a nice.
I would stay here again and recommend it without hesitation.
Simple, affordable and convenient for an overnight stay

We had a simple room on the first floor. Interesting and convenient that there was a door facing the inside corridor and also a door on the outside facing the parking lot. It was convenient to be able to get to the car and also get ice or something from different doors.
Room was mostly clean but we did find a very long hair that was definitely not one of ours. Would have been nice to have the room properly vacuumed.
The TV screen was tiny, made for difficult viewing from even lying in bed, but the beds were comfortable and no issues there. Got a coupon for breakfast at JPs next door (great restaurant).
If you have business in Mifflintown or you're passing through and looking for a place to rest ( we were doing the latter), this is a pretty good Hotel.

I used my reward points and booked a room with a hot tub. First, let me say I'm not a hot tub user and there were no directions so I could not enjoy it. There are no elevators so if you can't walk up steps, ask for a ground floor room with an outside entrance. The toilet in the room did not flush correctly and the worse thing was the 2 long dark hairs on one of the pillowcases- clear evidence the bedding was not completely changed- I ended up using a towel. And there is no coffeemaker and no breakfast- just a small voucher for the restaurant next-door. Unless I absolutely need to stay in that location with no other lodging I would not stay there again.

We had to return to the area for another funeral, and there are little options for accommodations. The staff were very polite, and the room was clean and comfortable. However, the clerk said that there was a snafu in their order, which meant that we had no toiletries in our room - very inconvenient, if you are not prepared. The TV was not much larger than a computer monitor, but we really had no opportunity to use it. The hotel shares the property with a truck stop, and the semis park right behind this place; one left his truck running all night, for some reason - bad for a light sleeper like myself.
The best in the area

Mifflintown doesn't have many options for staying overnight. This hotel is the best choice. It's very basic.
What I like:
1- it's very convenient to the highway and anything else in the town, actually.
2- It's clean.
3- The staff is friendly.
What we don't like:
1- There's no breakfast at all.
2- There are no frills. As an example, the chairs in the room are simply plastic picnic chairs.
3- The beeds and pillows are basic, but passable.
All-in-all, it's not bad. It's truly an economical overnight experience.
