The place is a disgrace. The room stank of smoke and when I asked to be moved, I was offered air freshener. The walls and carpets were dirty and the shower curtain was filthy. It really is a shocking dive.

Really bad! Smokey smelling rooms, made worse by the perfume they used to cover up the smoke. Cold coffee! Or no coffee at free breakfast Buffett. Roaches in room. All of this for a mere $250 a day. The Master's special rate. I would not stay there again.

I usually stay at another Econo lodge when I come to town for the masters each year. I took my chances with this one this year because it had a cheap price. Boy did I make a mistake. Being in downtown Augusta was a huge mistake, unsafe, and the motel was a wreck. I checked out and found the Econo... More

Dirt along every corner of the floor. Smelly drunk men at the stairs blasting hank williams jr. No internet, broke fridge, bad beds, dirty. Dirty. DIRTY! Only good part so far is the television and water pressure, after i cleaned the tub.

False advertising, rooms nothing like what's shown online. Pissy smelling. Infested with roaches. Roaches in tub all over phone everywhere. Nasty carpet no ice, broken lights,beds not queen. Would not recommend you to stay. Not worth the money. I recorded the roaches crawling everywhere

I have to say the rooms were very well kept and clean. Yet, after almost completing my continental breakfast the first words to me by the night attendant were, "what room are you in?" After a short time, I suggested respectfully to him that, "it might be more professional to greet a guest with a good morning!" He took a... More

First, the pros: The staff we interacted with were always friendly and tried to help. The free breakfast was OK but a little limited, just coffee, juice, cereal and bread. The cons: Our non-smoking room had a smell of stale cigarette smoke. The carpet in the room was worn and needed to be vacuumed. The bedside lamp had been removed... More
