Upon entering our room, there was food stains on the wall, dog hair on the carpet, and I could see through the sheets. Food crumbs on the counter, and hairs and specks of dirt in my bed. I did complain to the front desk about all my issues, and I have to give them a little credit for attempting to... More

Somewhat disconcerting to see signage for rooms by week and month. Is this a boarding house or hotel? Good beds, clean rooms, hot water, good air conditioning, quiet, plenty of parking space. Good wifi. Breakfast seemed virtually non existent both nights I was there. Some bread available for toast, a bit of orange juice, no coffee available either day, and... More

For the price this place was worth it.it was clean and comfortable .I would definitely stay here again,it needed a few updates but for the price I can't complain.as long as it is clean and comfortable that's what matters the most to me.also it was right beside the mall! A definite plus!

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
