Upon arriving, the trash cans outside were over full to the point of there was no room to put trash in. Our room didn't have a fridge in it and the faucet for the bath tub was not working properly. There was very little cold water that came out so it made it hard trying to get the shower water... More

In the suite instead of two tv's they have one in the middle. Not very comfortable to watch. Across the street is a outlet mall so area is busy. Room was... More

We stayed two nights at the Econo Lodge, and were pleasantly surprised at the facility. Our suite was clean and comfortable. The hot breakfast was good, and the staff is friendly and courteous. The size of the suite was surprisingly large, and we were very close to shopping and restaurants. A return trip is in our plans.

The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The room looked to be recently updated but the bathroom/shower could use more attention. Having said that, the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was adequate. Even though we had a non-smoking room, it is not a smoke free environment. Very good location and we would stay here again.

My husband booked this hotel based upon the ratings and affordability.we are not "beach" people and this hotel is only 7 miles north of the Gulf Shores beach community so we stayed here. I usually don't like exterior doors in a hotel but this worked out fine. We were on the second floor. The elevator was very convenient. The property... More

We have been staying here the past 5 days and have generally been very pleased. Pool area is one of the nicest we have ever had. Housekeeping does a good job, and desk staff is very pleasant. Bathroom is a bit dated, but maintained and adequate. Only thing that was disappointing was the breakfast. If you do not go the... More

I have stayed at several EconoLodges and found them to generally be the bottom of the Choice Hotel properties. I stayed in the Foley area for a couple of days and selected this lodge on the basis of the positive reviews and the price (I stayed for free on points). This EconoLodge is an older property which has been renovated.... More
