We booked two rooms, one of which was supposed to be handicapped access for our elderly mother. They told us it was handicapped when we booked it but that was a bait-and-switch. There were no grab bars by the commode and no walk-in shower. If you need handicapped access, beware this place. Also, the breakfast was very basic and the... More

A bit of a surprise. We went off of other reviews and they were right! This place wasn't fancy, but was very clean and had comfortable beds with plenty of pillows. I slept in! Don't pass this one by. We were happy to stay here.

I was traveling back from DC and needed to stay in Meadville. I saw a coupon for the Days Inn, but their exterior showed such a lack of maintenance (rotting wood trim) that I drove off...nest I tried the Holiday Inn Express..their rooms were $129, but they had none available. I drove over to EconoLodge....I paid $50 for a very... More

Stayed here for a night with family in the 2 double bed room. This is literally a place to crash your head for the night. This hotel was almost half way point for our trip form Toronto to Washington D.C area. For the price paid to what you get is fair. You cannot expect a hot breakfast at this price... More

I'm surprised by the negative reviews - we walked in without a reservation and a coupon from the Pennsylvania "welcome centre" on a Saturday afternoon and were given a very clean and comfortable room for the night for roughly $50. It's not the Ritz, but it had everything you could want or need - a comfortable bed, a great TV... More

I trusted the reviews on this site for accuracy. This hotel was NOT clean and it did not smell fresh. If this was a good Econo Lodge (again, based on reviews), it leaves me wondering what the average ones are like. No more Econo Lodge for me.

This hotel is very nice for a budget hotel, so much that I would not even qualify its as "budget". I would never have chose a Choice Hotels product from previous bad experiences many years ago. But, this one had such fantastic ratings on all the web sites, and a great price for the area compared to the Hampton, and... More

As an earlier reviewer noted, Econolodges can be hit and miss. This one was a definite hit. Welcoming staff, clean accommodation and very good value for the dollar. Would not hesitate to stay there in future.
