We GPSed our way to this area by way of a discount coupon book. The first motel we got to on the I-65 W Service drive was a motel 6. First let me say that any time I arrive at a motel in the late night and I can't come into the lobby but have to check in thru an... More

Made the decision to stay here after 11 long hours of driving and were too tired to get to our original target. With 2 small kids. Lasted in the room maybe 20 minutes before I was grossed out enough to pack up and get out fast. Next time I'll read reviews even when I'm too exhausted. What a gross mess

Stayed with my daughter en route to a veterinarian interview in Mississippi. We picked this at random on the Hotel Row off Airport blvd. Asked for a non-smoking room... but when we got into it... well, as my daughter said: "If this is non-smoking, it hasn't been non-smoking for long". Oh well, it was a stopover, it was fairly cheap,... More

We stayed here to not overwhelm our family; however, we should have. The rooms were clean on the superficial, but goodness if I had a magnify glass... I felt the carpet was dirty that I refused to take off my shoes, I refused to get underneath the bed covers, I refused to put my food on the mini fridge/microwave (good... More

The reason this got two bubbles (stars) instead of one is the lady at the front desk. She was so helpful - ready to offer another room immediately if the door lock on the present room would not function. Also, made sure the room was away from the indoor pool so that I could get my work done. The wifi... More

I was looking for a good, cheap motel, and I got it. It's clean. Lady at the front desk was decent. I wasn't expecting much, and it was an okay one-night stay. Small hole in the bedspread, limited toiletries.

We had no wifi in room, went to lobby and it just barely worked,,,very slow. Complained next morning, to no avail. Front desk worker that checked us... More

We travelled to Mobile for a funeral. I worked Friday in Atlanta, drove 5 hours to Mobile just to find out my reservations at another choice hotel was cancelled. So they booked the econo lodge, well we get in all beat up and tired. We get in the bed and all of sudden my cousin and I are jumping from... More

We only stayed at this Econolodge because our Choice Privileges™ rewards account had been given a "FREE" night, but that really meant that our account was credited with 8000 points, enough for only the WORST of their hotel chains (this one required 6000, all others were more than 100000 points) for that paltry an amount of points and we booked...
