What a waste ! nice location but hotel is gross. The first room we were given had a refrigerator about the fall over, the shower was not usable and dirty, the TV didn't work and the room was gross. 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.

Only stayed here because other area hotels were more expensive. In hindsight, I wished I had made a different choice in hotel. Sometimes paying extra is worth it. Once we go there and looked around we wanted to leave but everything in the area was booked up. Shabby, trash all over the rundown property. Smells like b.o. Sign on the... More

To begin with the building is shabby as can be, the stucco is bad and cheap enough but the entire property is littered with broken bottles, trash and whatnot. At night you would assume the place was abandoned, there are very few lights that work and the front driveway is completely invisible. The rooms appeared nice enough as did the... More
