I would recommend that you keep looking for a different place to stay. The place was not clean. We went to the breakfast and the eggs were the power kind and the hash browns were old. There are signs all over the place telling you how much food you can take...very unfriendly. We woke up around 8:00 to use the... More

Stayed 6 nights, the first 3 of which we had no access to the back parking lot because they were painting. After a long day out on Saturday, we returned to find a wedding being hosted in the banquet hall which we thought was no big deal since we couldn't hear the music on the third floor. However, when the... More

It was an OK stay. Pros: It was inexpensixe, the breakfast waspretty gppd fpr the price of the room, it was clean. Cons: My room was by the ice machine and you could hear everything that happened in the hallway. They were also painting outside my room around 8 AM. loud scraping and banging. The internet was slow.

I rarely complain about accommodation. I don't expect 5 star quality for a 2 star price like many seem to. If I pay budget price, I expect to get a budget room. Having said this, the Econolodge in Hammond was well overpriced for what we got. The room was just ok, if a little dirty, but on the whole acceptable... More

The hotel was old but in good condition the staff was friendly. The location was excellent to the venue i was going to. Overall my stay was good i think an adjustment could have been made to the selections at breakfast.

It was clean and convenient to our travels. Claudia was the person who checked us in and she was friendly and efficient. The hotel itself has seen better days and the smoking rooms could be smelled from the stairwell. Our room was spacious and clean, many TV stations to watch and a fridge and microwave. On the downside, the pool... More

We pulled in to this hotel at about 10 P.M., to see printed 'NO VACANCY 8/1' paper signs plastered everywhere. We then parked, and passed a toothless woman looking to score some drugs on our way through the parking lot. the lobby looked nice, but the sound of a loud party was almost overwhelming. We approached the front desk. Sam... More

I've stayed at worse 2 star properties. The room was big, fairly clean. The hotel has been recently renovated. The breakfast was pretty good. Waffles, sausage, hashbrowns, cereal, oatmeal, muffins. The walls were thin though, and I could hear the neighbor's kids throughout the night. I would stay here again.

The hotel was quite and very comfortable. It was right off the toll road and on a major street. Easy access and easy to find your way around. Front desk was very helpful when we asked directions. The hotel had free parking, free hot breakfast and a nice pool (Did not swim, no time) but it was indoors and looked... More
