We ended up getting into Lexington around 3AM and needed a place to sleep. $40 sounded decent, so we stayed here. This is fine for one evening, nothing more. I wouldn't see myself staying here for more than one night, but hey it was cheap. The free breakfast had next to nothing (brown toast, cereal, danishes). As for the area,... More

The only reason this didn't get one star was that the staff were very friendly. It's old and run down. The room was dirty (all except the bathroom, which was actually clean). The sheets were stained - I laid a stadium blanket on top of the sheets so I wouldn't have to lay on them. No hair dryer in the... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks. None of my favorite hotels in Lexington were available, so i gave Econo Lodge a shot. It's a decent value, can't complain too much. Room was clean enough. Dark though, it didn't feel as good as usually. Room was noisy.. i could hear my neighbors ermm making love. It's not horrible but i will try... More

Room smelled like urine. Desk clerk sprayed, which helped somewhat. Door and bath was filthy. Ceiling showed signs of severe leaking from above and was awful looking. Mildew and mold in the bathroom. They glued the bathmat to the bathtub, and it had mildew and mold on the edges. Noticed a bug on the pillow when turning the bedspread down.... More

from the condition of the carpet to the lack of an apparent smoke detector to a very discourteous front office clerk it went down hill from here.. there was no hair drier in the room ( ad said it would have one) quite possibly we were the only couple that stayed more than a few hours. (catch my drift)

The biggest downside that "irked" us, was how very dirty the carpet was inside the room. The room we stayed in needed a good shampooing. Our toddler's feet were black! The hotel is outdated with their furniture inside the rooms if you're bothered by worn furniture. We met up with our family and their room smelt very moldy. The pictures... More

When we checked in with a non smoking room reserved we got a room that said nonsmoking on the outside but the minute you walked in the door the smell hit you terribly. The India man at the front desk said sorry and gave us another on the other side. We should have left but so tired we stayed anyway.... More

Stayed on multiple occasions, as I am patient, love saving money at all costs and have an animal, so my options were limited. The location is infested with bees, living inside the guardrail columns. I let them know in April, May and finally again in June. Nothing was done. I fear public humiliation is the only thing left. There are... More
