This motel is conveniently located right off the highway. There are restaurants right across the road and the mall is directly behind it. The receptionists were both very nice. Our room was clean and had a refrigerator and micro. The breakfast was a typical continental one with toast, packaged danishes (which you could take with you), cereal and fruit. Coffee... More

This motel is rundown. The room was just okay. Found a bug in the bathroom. One bar of soap and a pack of travel tissues. Upon arrival there is no one at the front desk. The entrance is horrible and the breakfast is awful. There are people living at this hotel for weeks at a time. I had a second... More

I have had good experiences with Econo Lodges. After reading the recent reviews, I was unsure whether to book. Then I priced all the other motels in LaVale and Cumberland, MD. It was within our budget and the others were not, so I booked anyway. My only concern was they rent rooms by the week or month. My experience is... More

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
