We stayed 2 nights on a family visit. This was an Econo Lodge now under new management as Arlington Suites--Carefree Inn Elyria. In a convenient location just north of the mall at exit 145 from either I-90 or I-80. Staff were polite and friendly. Free continental breakfast consisting of waffles, coffee, OJ, muffins, bagels, cream cheese, 2 kinds of Kelloggs... More

My girlfriend and I came here while passing through. For what we paid it was a fairly clean place to sleep, nothing special. The whole property should get a face lift but the owner was kind and the motel was free of pests and anything off putting. Breakfast wasn't stellar but it was something to shove down before you get... More

Stopped here on my way from Milwaukee to PA when I was caught in a snow storm. Stayed at the first hotel we came to. It looked nice from the outside. The heat was not on in our room so it was freezing inside. We turned the heat up full blast but it still took forever to warm up and... More

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
