If I could give this property a negative rating that is what I would do... Terrible doesn't even do the level of dissatisfaction I feel justice. We booked this property through Hotwire.com. I have booked with them many times over the years and never been disappointed till now. I had concerns when we booked and got the hotel assignment and... More

When we visited their room, it reeked of cigarette smoke. The a/c didn't work. the mgmt gave them a fan to use. didn't help very much. The tub didn't drain very well. The room had a fridge in it, which they left open to try and cool the room. Also, they were suppose to get a $50 gift card because... More

If you like you room cold, prepare to sleep with a monster of an air conditioner. Not only was our as loud and annoying so was our neighbors. It went on and off during the night and you not only heard yours but everyone elses. The room was ok. Didn't have the breakfast because it wasn't healthy. Only stayed one... More

This is a hard one to write a review of. The hotel was clean: the beds comfortable and the service was excellent. There was no problem checking in as they had our room ready based on our Hotel.com reservation. Although I believe I asked for a non-smoking room and was given a smoking room, but even this room had a... More

I have come to the realization to not to expect too much with Econo Lodge. This motel does not have hair dryer, coffee maker or a microwave. It is dated, old and quite empty. The beds were alright, not that comfortable. You will not be disappointed if you do not expect much from Econo Lodge's continental breakfast. My contact with... More

I booked this hotel for an overnight stay for a Memorial Day road trip but when we arrived the desk clerk was not overly helpful but we paid for and went to the room. The room was unbelievable. It was nothing like the pictures or the description on the TripAdvisor website, which I normally trust thoroughly. This room was shown... More

Nothing fancy but ok for an overnight stop. There was no coffee maker or hairdryer in room, but there was a fridge. Room was clean. Not much in the way of breakfast, but they did have coffee in the lobby.

The ultimate rude front desk person was on in the evening shift. Having driven a long way and being tired, we weren't expecting much -- other than a clean room and comfortable bed. Coffee, however, would have been nice -- There was a pot in "breakfast" area with the dregs. We asked if we could make fresh coffee and were... More

We stayed here at an amazingly low rate through hotels.com on New Year's Eve. The owner was helpful, the room was large for our family of three and the cleanest of three (budget) places we stayed in Florida. And quiet for a good night's sleep before we went swimming with the manatees early in the morning!
