We stayed here on our way through for a nite,price was right as it allows pets also with a few restrictions,room was clean and shower was above average,checkout was a challenge as the room key cards stopped working well before checkout.The girl at the front desk wasnt impressed with having to reprogram the keys and the breakfast was just ok.

This hotel is the true meaning of you pay for what you get. The price isn't too high at all, but your not getting a whole lot. The halls had a slight smell of marijuana, the rooms were small and kind of tight. I understand it was winter and it was snowing, but the hotel driveway was covered in ice... More

Once again, this hotel was excellent for our needs. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the free breakfast was perfect. The shower was absolutely awesome. A great way to start the day. The hotel had free WiFi so this was great after no WiFi in Wawa.

I've stayed at the Econo Lodge in Ottawa and Montreal. This is by far the BEST one. Rooms were very clean, free wifi and parking, free continental breakfast, free gym! Very friendly staff. Lots of places to go out and have dinner near by. Awesome stay. We stayed at the Econo Lodge as a stop along our drive across Canada.... More

Very unfriendly staff. All requests were met with resistance. I had never experienced this at another hotel and I travel a lot. Spend a couple of dollars more and feel good about where you stay. We will never be back.

We arrived at the Econo Lodge after a long, wet drive from Sault Ste. Marie. We booked by telephone and received a very good rate including breakfast $76 + tax. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Our room was small but it appeared to be newly renovated with the exception of the air conditioner which was quite noisy.... More

Rooms had been renovated. Small but comfortable and clean. Hallways could use some work. Air conditioner a little noisy but worked well. Good location. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast included hot items.

As some of the others had mentioned the AC was loud (fine to sleep as it was background noise, but harder to hear TV. It seemed that the shower caused the shower curtain to smell? On the plus side the front desk crew was very helpful & called to find out the hours of a local restaurant. Continental breakfast was... More

We were generally happy with our stay at the motel. As the name suggests you get an economical room ie bit small with very small towel each. But that is ok our problem was the wall air conditioning unit which due to size of room is almost right next to your ear as you lie in bed. That would not... More
