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

This hotel is a value- clean, easy check in process, breakfast and newspaper provided, and now there is a fitness center to use in the building that is free of charge. There's a business center for printing boarding pass. The manager, Oral Ali, who has been there the many years I have visited, is consistently welcoming and helpful. My request... 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

We ordered a room to "Clarion Hotel Port Canaveral Area" and when we arrived we surprised by a new name "Econolodge". After one night we knew why.

For most guys this room would be OK. For my wife, it was not that great. The room looked alright when you walk in, for the age of the hotel it is kept up. The TV looks to be from the 20th century but was a 2005 model. The shower looked like my childhood bathroom from the 1950'. They keep... More

I stayed 8/9-8/10. I was looking for the basics in my stay. Did not want to pay too much for one night. I was going to take a cruise the next day and as long as it was clean, close to where I needed to be for my vacation, it was good. It was in a good location. Good Hotel.

The staff was friendly and professional. Room was clean. Price was reasonable. This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here. The general manager was very hospitable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in and around Florida.

This would not have been my choice of a hotel. I'm not a fan of outside doors. The staff were very nice, but the facility is VERY old and some things are updated an other things are not. The name is now Econo Lodge so it was difficult to find, drove past it twice.
