I really enjoyed this past weekend at the Econo Lodge. The management and the workers were very nice and very accomodating. I will stay there again if I go back to Mammoth Cave National Park. Vary nice pool!!

This hotel is nasty. Blood stains on the sheets, hair in the bed, the room smelled bad, and the toilet was broken. Upon asking for a new room, we were told no. We also were denied a refund. The only thing they said was they'd give us some extra sheets and a plunger to fix the toilet. He also suggested... More

It's an Econolodge...it's not a Drury Inn...it's not a Hampton Inn...keep that in mind and don't set expectations too high and your budget travel needs are met just fine. Other Cave City motels were offering the usual holiday weekend tourist rip-off rates...not this one! The non-smoking king room we were given was actually smoked in and we were moved right... More

The only positive thing about this place is the pool......The price for this hotel was expensive (188 dollars) for 2 nights (memorial weekend). It was dirty and everything was in poor shape. No extra pillows and the beds were very uncomfortable. If another place had a room we would of demanded our money back on this one!!

I must say that although this hotel could use some cosmetic work we had a good stay. Our room was acceptably clean and although sheets were recently cleaned (bleached), they probably should be replaced soon due to some small stains. This is a great location I would love to see them do some upkeep. It doesnt need anything major. Breakfast... More

I don't usually stay in EconoLodges, but ended up at this one after a long, tiring day on the road with my 90-year-old mother. The clerk at the front desk, Marcie, made sure we had a ground-floor room, gave us the AAA rate adjustment that had been missed when we called the corporate 800 number to reserve the room, and...

This is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at in my life. There's a reason it's the cheapest -- because it's dirty and, well, cheap -- don't let anyone con you into staying here due to the price. Hardest beds ever. I had to use spare pillows to sleep on to get three hours of sleep before being... More
