My husband and I booked this hotel online and paid ahead for our stay. Upon checkin we were given a smoking room that reeked so bad I don't believe a window or door had ever been opened to air it out. the smell was so bad that I did not keep my suitcase in the room. The bath tub had... More

Hello Leabow, Once again I would like to apologize for any inconvenience our hotel may have caused you. You had booked a smoking room and due to a busy weekend we could not move you to a non-smoking room. We tried our level best to re-sell your room for second night but we were unable to do so therefore we... More

Certainly no five star joint, however it is very conveniently situated less than 5min from downtown Auburn and the University campus, and is right off of the major highways (straight shot from Atlanta airport on I-85). Lighting is always awkward in these places. beautifully situated for the room to be well lit with natural light through the window, however, window... More

We recently had to be in Auburn for a 2-day swim meet for my son and needed a place to spend the night. We paid less than $60 for a room at the Econolodge so I was not expecting much. The room was defintely not the fanciest but it was clean and the beds were nice. My family thought it... More

Nothing special about this place, which is fine. It's not for a romantic getaway, but it's clean, comfortable, convenient to I-10, and reasonably priced. It has fee wifi and iit's next to a Waffle House. What more do you need?

We have stayed here 4 or 5 years in a row. Always a nice quiet stop -- not too busy and restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, last year and this year our room had roaches -- not a lot but that's not the point. Both years I killed 1 or 2 adults and a half dozen or so tiny ones.

Spent 2 nights herected fir Auburn family weekend. The hotel is right off the interstate and a very short drive to campus. It has exterior corridors but we felt perfectly safe. The room seemed to be recently renovated. Comfortable mattress, strong wifi signal, very clean. Air conditioner was a bit loud but it helped mask highway noise. The hotel has... More

This was our first stay at this hotel since they've remodeled. The rooms are pretty basic, but are clean and have all the necessary amenities. The wall mounted flat screen is a nice touch. We were in town for the home opener so the room rates around town are very high, but we were able to secure a cheap rate... More

This hotel was very quiet and the staff was very friendly. I love the location and the cleanliness of my room. I really appreciate the house keeping staff they went above and beyond too make sure my needs was met when it came to cleaning my room. I will recommend Econolodge to my family, friends and co-workers.
