I recently had a business meeting in Lake City , Fl. and chose the EconoLodge to stay at. It was right off I-75 and US highway 90. I arrived late on a Wednesday night and the clerk at the front desk took care of me quickly and I was in my room in minutes. Now, don't expect the Ritz. It... More

I was staying in Lake City overnight on business. I booked through Choice Privileges. I arrived early and was given an upstairs room on the pool side. The room was older, but clean and acceptable. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. I have no complaints at all about my stay. I will probably stay here again on my next... More

Stayed here while driving through to Florida. We chose Econolodge because we just wanted a room to safely sleep in. That's what we got. The room was moderately clean, and worked just fine for us. They are pet friendly, staff was courteous and helpful. Several restaurants and stores are close by.

We have stayed here a number of times, as it is convenient, clean and the staff is pleasant. But this last stay we heard heavy traffic from the highway including the interstate and the access highway to properties in the back. Will look for a different property in the future.

I can't say anything about the check-in process, because it was my husband who checked us in, not me. When we made our reservations online, we stated that we were traveling with our cat. The room that we were assigned was in rough shape. When we pulled up to it in the parking lot, I could see holes in the... More

My wife and I needed a room in Lake City just for the night of Oct 17 -- preferably close to Interstate 75. After looking across the internet, reading various review sources (starting with Trip Advisor, of course!), I decided upon the Econo Lodge North. I booked it through Priceline, but could have secured the same price through Choice Hotels,... More

One of the worst motels i have ever stayed at, the over spray of disinfectant could not hid the animal urine smell. Have filed a case against the motel with the state of Florida dept.of agriculture consumer complaint division [ unauthorized use of my credit card ] Would run not walk away from this con game.

I never expect much from the lower end of the Choice brands, but this place was way above average. The rooms were recently redone. Pool area was great. Breakfast was Sara Lee carbs, but as expected. Great price. Very friendly. Only downside is when you stay at the low end of the price range you sometimes end up with frightening... More
