This hotel is about what you would expect for this price range and type. Basic accommodations with few frills. Clean and well kept, nice and friendly staff, no view, near the crossroads of a couple of major highways. Within easy drive of Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. A basic continental breakfast is offered in the lobby but nothing to speak of.

I found this place in the magazine that you get when you enter each state. I had some earlier success with another hotel, so I was quite prepared to try again. Unfortunately, this Econo Lodge was so shady. As I pulled into the lot, I saw a `lady of the night`at least I thought it was. Well it was confirmed... More

If customer service and pride of ownership could be bottled- mr Patel would have the patent. i will not stay anywhere else if i'm anywhere close to this property.

Motel was run down. Room had not been painted in years (as it looked) and there was a big crack in the wall where it looked like a body might have hit it. I stayed 3 days because I was to tired to change Motels. Price was more in line with cleaner and new Motels. Another reason I chose to... More

Initially my on-line reservation provided a ridiculously low price for the last two nights. The manager called and said this was an error and needed to be adjusted. I talked with him, with ChoiceHotels, and with my wife and came up with a compromise we all could agree to. The manager was very reasonable and personable. We were put in... More

We stayed at this hotel on 3/8/13. We needed something close to Springboro for an early appointment the next day. The room was very clean and the owner very nice and accomodating. It has easy access to the highway and close proximity to a walgreens and restaurants. There was good water pressure for showering. A great value for the money.

Econo Lodge was living up to its name and offering good accomodations for the money. The room was clean. The TV, microwave, and refrigerator were fully functional. The breakfast was limited but tasty.

Our room was great but our friends room was discusstingly filthy.Service was not to bad just hope they do alittle work there to make it better. They need to clean the walls and make sure to maybe check all rooms to make sure they are in top order for the next guests.
