Not bad especially for the price. Only real complaint room smelt of cat urine. The breakfast was minimal. Made my reservation on choice online so it was very reasonable for a stop while driving up I-77

Stopped for the night just north of Charlotte. The hotel was a little difficult to find as it is on a side road off U.S. 21 (right at first light west of I-77). We had a coupon from a rest stop magazine, but since we wanted two beds, it wasn't valid. However we did get a decent room at a... More

I got this hotel on Hotwire multiple times. This last time was the worst. Two lights din't work which is inexcusable since the cleaning staff should check this. Also, there is no place to plug your computer in anywhere near the desk without unplugging either the microwave or fridge. The tub valve was constantly leaking too but otherwise the room... More

When Choice Privileges railroaded me into this Econo Lodge for a free stay, I should have been suspicious. First of all, this Econo Lodge has a 24 hour cancellation policy, which means that you cannot inspect the room before you are financially committed to stay there. Once inside your room, you will notice how dated the furniture is and how... More

I went with friends for a quick get away! When I went to check in, I decided to pay cash instead of a credit card! The clerk told me there would be a $25.00 fee for paying with cash. There was even a sign stating that also! The clerk advised me the money would be returned to me on check... More

I nearly always always stay at choice rewards hotels. This stay may change that. It took an hour to check in at midnight with no one waiting. First into a smoking room then credit card overcharrge that the clerk said the morning person would straighten out. In the morning the clerk simply refused and kept the money. I told her... More

The motto for our weekend stay here is you get what you pay for. We were looking for aomething within walking distince to my brothers house and this was. We got a $69 rate for a Friday and Saturday stay, which is awesome. However, it is clear that the rate carries over into every aspect of your stay. The rooms... More

We stopped at the North Carolina Welcome Center on I-77 N, and the wife picked up a book of hotel discount coupons in which we found a coupon for the Cornelius, NC, EconoLodge advertising a room and “deluxe” continental breakfast for $49. Just what the doctor ordered! The hotel is very conveniently located only a minute off I-77 on a... More

Stayed for three weeks while working in the area (McGuire Nuclear Station) and was pleased with the room and service. Because of the extended stay the room was discounted and at that price was a bargain. The room was not new, but it was taken care if and clean. The desk help and staff were very cordial and helpful.

Beds...old, other furniture..old, bathroom..old, television..old... This was really like stepping into a time capsule. There are some serious upgrades needed. It wouldn't be so bad if the room items were at least CLEAN, but unfortunately, they are not. The bathtub was clogged and it forced you to shower while standing in your own dirt! Ok..on to the beds...the mattresses were... More
