We stayed in the area on business for over a month, the hotel was always clean and comfortable, the internet fast, and the morning coffee fresh and hot! I would highly recommend this hotel, it was affordable and easily assessable to restaurants and shopping. Kash and Mary were always helpful and very friendly. Thanks again for a great stay!

The Econo Lodge in Thomson is a very nice hotel. I felt safe and welcomed while staying here with my small children. Checking in was extremely fast, which my impatient children and I appreciated. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. The beds are very comfortable, the internet was fast, and the rooms have cable tv. There isn't much more... More

My club fishes in the area often and we have always counted on Econo Lodge for a good nights rest at a fair rate. They have always been courteous and accommodating of us as well as our boats.

Enjoyed my stay driving through. The gentleman although young at the front desk was very courteous. He had a restaurant list printed for his guests with directions. He handled things like he had been doing it for years. I found out later he was the manager and that he had been doing this type of work for years. I literally... More

Not a fancy place. Masters week prices were out of site around the area. Found this place at last minute...reasonable considering the weekend. It is a Econolodge...not top of the line. But, that being said, the front office staff was very nice and accommodating...room was clean...price was very reasonable considering Masters week. Would stay there again under the circumstances.

I booked an Econo lodge in Augusta because there was a cheap price. I learned my lesson real quick. I ended up coming to this one. This is the place that I have stayed here for the past few years when I come in for the Masters. It's a little more than the one in downtown Augusta but far better... More

I'm conflicted about this review...A week ago, we had the good fortune to have friends who gave us tickets to Tuesday's Masters practice round. So we were in need of a room on short notice. We didn't want to stay too far away from Augusta, so based on the reviews I read on this hotel, decided it was worth a... More

We looked online and found the Econo lodge to be a pretty good deal compared to Augusta for the Masters. We booked 4 rooms and they were pretty nice I must admit.
