Traveling with two adults and a small toddler. The room was very clean. No issues with cleanliness or noise. The room was average size and exceeded my expectations judging from the reviews. I would have no issues staying here again if I'm in the area.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Elyria over Memorial Day weekend as it was not far from the event we were attending. I'm sorry to say the hotel/motel needs a lot of maintenance. The front desk staff were helpful and pleasant and tried to address our issues, but our room was kind of disgusting in ways that couldn't really... More

This place was terrible! No one at the front desk to check us in. We got our rooms, one set of keys did not work, so we went down to the front desk to get the keys fixed, and the second time they did not work. Someone with a master key was able to open the room only to find... More

Good location, friendly staff at check in but not out. Decent size room and quiet. But the carpet was icky and toilet not working! Affordable but you can probably find better value. Called to 800# to complain of toilet and they gave no part refund, just email $10 credit. Then staff called to say sorry and that they didn't know--... More

The manager at the desk was always solicitous and helpful. I think he's trying to do a good job, but may be overwhelmed, or lack resources. The beds and linens were good, but the exterior needs some attention (for example, the rooms' exterior doors). The grill on the interior ac/heating unit was missing (broken off). The faucet on the sink... More

The motel is older vintage but neat and clean. The room with a comfortable king size bed had standard furniture including a table, two chairs, dresser, luggage rack and a small wall clothes rail with hangers. A small refrigerator, microwave and sink were against a back wall along with a small safe on the floor. The television was an older... More

Stayed here during my summer vacation trip (July 23-26) while traveling around Lake Erie. There was another guy standing next to the front desk when we entered, and although I later found out that he also worked here, he didn't bother letting us to it. The lady who assisted us when we checked in was so-so. She smiled but kind... More

great location, clean rooms, very affordable. Air conditioning was really loud in our room, but other than that - bare bones place to stay. i would come back - great value for a cheap nights stay. TV is very basic - no cartoon channel for the kids
