4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2014

we were looking for an affordable,pet friendly hotel to visit a convention going on 2 hotels down and was very happy with the Economy Lodge. They may not have flat screen TVs but had everything we needed to stay comfortably for 2 days plus continental breakfast although not the biggest spread was still decent.

I rented this hotel late as an emergency because it was close to my job. The place is by far one of the worst hotels Ive ever stayed at. Its disgusting, the linens were dirty and cigarette burned and the towels looked like they were never washed. The bead was a lopsided foam pad and the door didnt open or... More

I asked for a different room and the next wasn't much better but it was clean and on the second floor... More

This hotel shouldn't be in the Choice Hotel chain. The reviews on trip advisor are 100% accurate. It's disgusting. I know it's cheap, but there is clearly no standard of cleanliness in this property. Trash all around the building outside. The floor in the entrance had stains on the tile floor in front of vending machines. Clearly no one cleans... More

Confirmation number: 22685865 Econo Lodge (NJ295) Whippany, NJ, US is horribly managed and dilapidated. There is no security and the hygiene level was enough to cause my wife and I to check out within 30-minutes of arriving. The manager seemed unphased by our disgust and offer no retribution. I doubt I'll ever make reservations through Choice Hotels again!

I booked my reservation online. Called to make sure it had a microwave and fridge. They said they would have one put in the room. Fine. The curb appeal is what I expected. The lobby was clean and smelled great. When i started to my room i noticed many lights were out, it was very dark and there were suspicious... More

We were headed for Maine and got a late start. Stopped at the last moment and late at night. Desk staff were helpful. Clean room at a fair price. Breakfast and hot coffee served in the morning. Room was clean & excellent. Did not use any children's activities or fitness center. Trip advisor requires that I fill them in anyway?

Review of others confirmed. Friend reserved it and as we entered the room we were disgusted. Could not pass board of health hell. duct tape around iron white patches on red wall smoky air and could not breath. Choice hotels must be proud of this franchisee. clerk refund our payment without argument. Then rushed away to hilton.
