I usually rate a motel only on the quality of the overnight's sleep; clean, no bugs, no smoke, hot water and no frat parties. My room (205) passed all of these but.....the hallway noticeably smelled of cigarette smoke. The beds and furniture were clean but the coffee pot was very dirty as was the hot plate under the glass coffee... More

I love Econo Lodge, I stay there regularly. But this hotel is terrible. They lied to my face and said they would have their parking lot cleared of snow in the morning after I checked in. After 2+ hours stuck in their parking lot, I had to pay a $150 tow bill to get pulled out of a foot of... More

So I'm pretty low maintenance. When I read bad reviews on here I often think many are just expecting perfection at a discount price. I am not. I like a clean comfortable room - that's about all. The Econo Lodge in London, KY is neither. Worn, dated, beds that feel they are made of cement, disgusting breakfast with expired pastries,... More

Travelling home for trip in southern US. Looking for a decent place at a decent price. Hotel was 'tired'; sewage backed up into the bathroom sink. Patched holes in hallway where something had leaked badly. Asked for refund and left.

I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in nice hotels as well as budget motels all over the U.S. This Econolodge is definitely the worst motel I've ever seen! The lobby looked clean and inviting, and the desk clerk was nice, and those were the only good things about the motel. After arriving late at night, tired from a... More

I stay at this hotel twice a week and am happy with their service and friendly people. Rooms are clean and comfortable. They have my registration ready and their prompt wake up calls get me on the road early. I would recommend this hotel.

Currently at Econo Lodge in London. For the last hour, I've had to listen to housekeeping staff swear, curse, and drop the "F bomb" while discussing surgery and lazy co-workers. We all get disgruntled at work occasionally, but their manner is beyond unprofessional! Do not stay here if you are a night shift worker because sleep throughout the day is... More

My wife and I travel from Canada to Florida a couple times a year and we make it a point to stay at this hotel in London, KY. We have enjoed our stay each times the last 5 years and would highly recommend this hotel to others. It is a clean comfortable room and the hotel staff is very nice.
