We stayed here while attending a wedding. Our room was clean with a spacious bathroom. We were within walking distance from the wedding venue "Grand Traditions". The walls were paper thin. We heard a phone alarm go off 3 times. The mini blinds didn't block the sun (ill fitting). The bed was comfy but there was a thin bedspread with... More

This hotel offers Days Inn/Best Western type quality for Motel 6 price. I've stayed twice in the last month. Each time the rooms were large and impeccably clean, the bed was comfortable and everything worked. The couple that operate the hotel are extremely service-oriented. On my first stay a freeway closure delayed my arrival till 3 a.m. The proprietor was... More

Frist, it's an Econo Lodge, not a Marriot. Don't expect fancy. The pricing was very good and it was very close to the location of a wedding I was attending. Very good service by the hotel staff. The outside of the building looks like it has new stucco and new paint. Maybe even looked like a new building. Inside the... More

We spent 4 nights at the Econo Lodge while visiting family in Fallbrook. Plusses: reasonable price, large room, clean, good location. Minuses: no pool, exercise room or elevator, minimal breakfast, some noise from road & adjoining room, one vending machine & it was empty. Annoyance: On our last morning we planned to eat breakfast at 7am (the advertised opening time)... More

It might not be the best rating because of it name but it is the prefect location if the wedding venue you're attending share the same entrance. When we enter the room there was a musty smell to the room, not the most pleasant feeling. However after we turn the air on the smell went away. The room had everything... More

Thank you for taking the time to survey your stay! We apologize for the musty smell, during the summer days our guest rooms can become warm when they are vacant. However, once either aired out or air cooled the room is refresh. We will look into venting guest rooms during the morning or mid-day to avoid this problem. We are... More

Econo Lodge is a no frills operation with the basic amenities of microwave, refrigerator, tv and free WiFi. There have been some recent exterior upgrades to what is an older structure, and for those requiring ADA access, request a first floor room as there is no elevator on the property. For anyone attending an event at The Grand Tradition, it... More
