The hotel is simple 2 story block building, only a few miles from the beach and historical site. We chooses this hotel based on a friend's recommendation The rooms are decent but not elaborate. However, considering the low rates for government employees, this is a great deal. Free breakfast, Love the waffle iron which made perfect waffles. The best asset... More

Stayed 2 nights and was greeted by a very friendly staff and lady who was the manager who made us feel welcome right away. True hospitality you don't see much any more. Room was clean and received a curtousy call shortly after arrival to make sure everything was in order and we were happy. Very nice touch. Only down side... More

I'm writing this review while laying in the "bed" of my room here. Mattress is extremely cheap and uncomfortable. There is a constant drip from the bathtub that will make you crazy until the air conditioning kicks on, then you can't hear anything else. Every room is an exterior room, so when you have morons that do not realize it's... More

We got this hotel as part of a Hotwire booking during the busy Memorial Day weekend. The location is great since it is so close to 70 and not far from the bridge to Atlantic Beach. Like most Econo Lodges and Quality Inns, it is a basic place with no frills. The room was pretty clean. The mattress was really... More

Our room was clean and nice for an inexpensive motel. Staff was nice and friendly. After we left, we realized that we had left articles of clothing. We called and they shipped to us. I love that customer service. I would definitely stay there again.

A reasonably priced hotel. Front desk staff was friendly. Disappointed that the carpet hadn't been vacuumed well. Just one more minute of vacuuming up the crumbs and other dirt left by the previous guest would have made a much better impression. The hotel wasn't busy, so they shouldn't have been rushed.

I would have asked for a new room or left had I not arrived after midnight and had a free room with reward points. While I understand that Econo Lodge is not high end, I do expect a clean bed, shower, sink, and carpet at any level of accommodations. I was in the area for the North Carolina Seafood Festival...

Basic room, clean with ample towels. Internet free but it went in and out, tho not too terribly annoying if you're just surfing the net. Problem was other guests who clomped down the stairs with luggage at 6am. We could also hear every ice cube fall from the machine (also at 6am). Recommend getting a room as far away from... More

Stayed in the back of the hotel building from July 21 - July 24, 2014, and were very impressed with the room, quietness & cleanliness for the price! We definitely will stay there again in the future! It is not a luxury hotel, but for two it was just perfect!
