The room was clean, the water was hot in the shower, the staff were great. The carpet on the stairs are torn and frayed, someone will trip on them. The door of our room did not close properly and my husband had to fight with it to lock it. The bathroom tile has something that has oozed from it and... More

My room was clean and comfortable. I required NO services, and they honored that I, however had tio leave a day early due to a family emergency. My son-in law fell off a roof and was air lifted to a hospital in Shreveport.

My group was staying at Econolodge because there was a volleyball tournament we were participating in. At first we noticed an odor in the room but didn't think a lot of it because we had to immediately leave to go to a game. We got back to the room and my friend went to brush her teeth, where she said... More

After a long,hot motorcycle ride this was the best we could find. The outside pool had been filled in however, the indoor pool was open. It was VERY cold but felt great after a long day. Didn't really feel like going anywhere for supper then noticed there was a restaurant in the hotel. What a surprise. Must be THE place... More

Sure it's conveniently priced but the staff is slow and not welcoming waited over the minutes while staff were talking just to get checked in. Pool area was horrible nothing like the pictures. Room was clean however but over all would and should have spent my money elsewhere. Close to by-pass so noise from police etc all during the night.... More

I stay here quite often because of the lower rates and I can walk into my room from my auto. These folks here have treated me very well. I stay here every two weeks and have built a good rapport with the staff. They help me with everything I need, including the use of power cords.

Even though they change franchise affiliations,,,,either forcibly or to confuse travelers with a new name....this is the same hole. Marijuana and cigarette smoke wafting through the halls, VERY deceptive photos of the property....”Girls” working the back parking lot and knocking on doors at four in the morning to “use the phone.” You are better off sleeping in your car at...

I have family in El Dorado, and although I don't live too terribly far away, I sometimes stay at the Econolodge. It is an older hotel, but it is always clean and I cannot say enough about how courteous the management is. My little ones particularly enjoy the indoor swimming pool. It's not really large, but it's clean, warm and... More

I am writing this email to post a complaint. I am not sure if this will help, but felt a need to report this motel. The photos on the website for this location are very misleading, they must have been taken when the motel was brand new. The motel was very run down and looked nothing like I was expecting.... More
