This hotel was was terrible. We were placed in a ground level room, which meant that it was directly off of the parking lot. When we got to the room, the door was open. We debated just leaving and going somewhere else, but it was already pretty late and we'd already paid so much for the room. Fortunately no one... More

Expected something basic but decent from a chain hotel. Couldn't wait to leave. Dirty halls, strange spots on box spring, miserly breakfast. This place did not meet even most modest expectations. Convenient location close to the interstate.

While visiting family in the area, we decided to stay overnight instead of driving the three hours home. Usually we stay at the Comfort Inn or the Best Western. With a tight budget, the decision was made to save a few bucks and stay at the Econo Lodge. A lesson was learned in that it pays to spend the extra... More

There was a screwdriver on our bed when we arrived. They advertised free internet, which didn't work for the first couple hours, and barely worked for the rest of our stay. If you want to watch netflix or hulu on your computer, forget it. The "continental breakfast" was cheerios and fruit loops and honey buns. I didn't get much sleep... More

If you are driving on I-68 and need a place to sleep this is great. About 2+ hours from DC great for us to get a late night escape from the city to miss traffic and start our trip. $50 for 2 beds, clean room, hot water with pressure, and a fridge, friendly staff but not much more. Would not... More

We've stayed here before with mixed results. This time they were good. We were on the third floor - no view - but it was quiet. The king bed was comfortable, the room was clean and we were satisfied. It gets an average rating because Econo Lodges are generally inexpensive and short on amenities. If saving money is your goal,... More

Basic hotel without the trimmings, expected for $50. Room was clean and basic. The continental breakfast is cereal, toast, packaged snacks, juice and coffee. I'm not a big breakfast eater, coffee is all I need. If you are, just plan to go somewhere else. For the price, it was a quiet and clean room, good for an overnight.

From the outside, this Econo Lodge is unimpressive. However, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The layout with the sink outside the bathroom works well for a couple. The location is the best attribute- it is convenient to I-68 and very close to numerous shops and restaurants. If staying here, ask for the 2nd or 3rd floor... More

Best night sleep I've had in a long while. This is an updated Econolodge. Was pleasantly surprised at this hotel; clean very comfortable bedding and linens, quality towels, and pet friendly with grassy areas to exercise dogs. Only suggestion I'd make is have doggie doo cleanup stations with bags and waste baskets. Obviously not all pet owners who had visited... More
