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

I use the Corporate Lodging Card and there are only 3 properties in El Dorado that take the card and this is the only one that had truck parking so my choices were very limited. True, this is an older property that has seen its better days, but it was clean. When I sat on the edge of the bed,... More

Security? It's a joke! Women were knocking on my door at three in the morning wanting to "use the phone." Film over the pool as well as the "hot tub." Breakfast consisted of pecan rolls and cockroaches. This property keeps changing its' franchise affiliation....BEWARE! You are better off sleeping in your car....
