For man and beast; the latter a plus in our case. Nevertheless, what this place lacks in stars, a touch of paint here and there, and some fixture up-grades, is more than made up with reasonable accommodation, adequate bed, and other basics -fridge,micro, Wi-Fi, et alia. Another bonus is the well-trained staff with loads of local knowledge helpful on heaps... More

I reserved my room by phone w/ my card, as I've done for years, with the confirmation this would be a cash transaction at time of arrival. Not only did they take my cash, they charged my card as well at time of arrival, and when I returned home...they charged my card AGAIN! Not only are they not taking calls... More

We chose the motel because it was pet friendly and was very pleased to find a nicely furnished, clean and handicapped access room. Convenient to pet friendly beaches and good restaurants. Enjoyed staying and plan to use in the future.

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in Morehead City and after reading reviews decided on the Econo Lodge. We didn't care if it was close to anything, we just wanted a clean place to crash. It met all of our needs. The room was spacious and clean, the price was fair, but the bonus was the... More

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

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.

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.
