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

For the price you get what you would expect. The front desk clerk, whom members of our group independently nicknamed "Smiley", "Mr Happy" and "Grumpy", was a dour sort and not really a people-person. My wife wouldn't have let our dogs near anything at much maligned breakfast. You'd do better with your leftover donuts and coffee from the day before.... More

It was not a great place but for $53, ok. The room was clean, but not decorated great. Pretty bare bones. The refrigerator in the room ran quite loudly. Bed was pretty soft, too. Staff was ok but we didn't need much help from them. The shower was great. The best thing about the place. Great pressure. The breakfast is... More

I asked for a first floor for my dog and me. All that was available was a handicapped access room. Many others appeared to be in the same situation during the local dog show.I have stayed in these rooms before with no problem. The shower was about 4 ft high or handheld if I wanted to wash my hair and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean, but spare. There was room in the corner for a table and chair, but the corner was empty. There was a slot in the vanity for Kleenex, but no Kleenex. There were minimal amenities. To get to the office and the complimentary breakfast, you had to go outside in the... More

I was dying for a get away to the mountains; hence, we booked this Choice hotel for one night. Upon our arrival, the front desk was empty, ghost hotel I thought. But a few minutes later, a man came out, "What do you need!" He demanded in an arrogant and condescending tone. I thought to myself, what the hell I... More

I was a bit skeptical and had mixed feeling about booking here. However, the stay was very pleasant. The room was clean and smelled good. I looked very thoroughly through the room when I got there and was honestly ready to clean if anything because my boyfriend was coming to spend the weekend. We skipped breakfast because of the reviews... More

Stayed one night at the Econo Lodge in LaVale, MD and for $65 for the night, it was fine. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. It's not a fancy hotel by a long shot, but for a clean comfortable place to sleep for a night this is a great place. Breakfast in the morning includes coffee, tea, milk,... More

We got in late, close to 11 pm after stopping at several others over 40 miles that were all booked...no internet service to check out reviews like I usually do. Would have been to sleep in our car! The bathroom smelled like pee so bad, the floor was filthy and walls were dirty and missing paint! There was a big... More

While the price was right ($89 for 2 nights), the beds need to be replaced and the air conditioning didn't! It needed some serious freon - or whatever is envirionmentally friendly these days. the front desk staff is great!!!
