The staff was great. They were helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. The facility is outdated and needs a deep cleaning and updating. The rooms are small and ours smelled a little musty. There was build up in the corners of the bathroom and some grime around the tub. The breakfast was OK but not great. Again dining room... More

This is agreat hotel. The staff was super friendly. Especially Amanda and Mo. They offer park and cruise which is great. The bathrooms are a little outdated but otherwise a great staff. Breakfast was awesome. They offer different options with cook to order food. Will definitely stay here again.

Gor a good rate thru bowling tournament, close to lanes. Hotel is tired. Staff is pleasant and tries hard to please. Wifi in rooms is fair at best. Can't keep connection. Breakfast is cooked to order and is included in the price of the room. Not your normal breakfast included. Good selection. But a lot of items are an extra... More

I'm on a bicycle vacation through the American South. I cycled on to Merritt Island after sunset. I found the Econolodge using Google Maps. Pretty tired after a seventy mile day I stumbled into the lobby looking disheveled. The general manager, Mr Oral Ali, was just leaving for the day but took the time to greet me. The front desk...

my mother booked this place for my niece and I to visit Kennedy Space Center, on a sunday night stay. It was an OK stay, but I feel she overpaid ($90~ + taxes) for what we got. Room: mostly clean, for me being not very picky; housekeeping definitely needs to be more thorough. In-room coffee maker had old coffee starting... More

We stayed at the Econolodge for a Art/Craft show for which we were exhibiting. The rate was discounted ($56/night). We've stayed here previously when it was the Comfort Inn. It's a very basic hotel. It has a swimming pool area, which looked very inviting although we didn't have the time (or outdoor temp) to check it out. The room itself... More
