First, let me just start out by saying that I've stayed at several Econo Lodge's in the last year; one on Briarsdale Rd in Harrisburg (loved it) One in Lancaster on 30 (super comfy beds but just okay hotel) this was the worst hotel I've encountered. You can't find the place for one thing. It's not on 15 South towards... More

I stay here regularly and they treat me incredibly well. Easy people to get along with and the place is super clean. They are always working on the outside, painting, gardening with their beautiful flowers. It is very reasonably priced

Stopped for one night on a trip to the coast. Room was very clean and spacious. Staff is not overly friendly. Some traffic noise (close to highway). WiFi was very weak or not at all. Breakfast is continental. There is a good diner down the road.

Room was ok, musty smelling. There was a large screw coming out of the wall about two inches which could cause injury to guests. Bathtub was slippery because when you step in, the bottom is not flat! A couple we traveled with had to leave around midnight because the carpet and mattress were soaked with what appeared to them to... More

I stayed here for a few nights, the room is ok, it was dirty when I got there (mud? under sink in bathroom, corners of bathroom dirty) I was charged for two extra nights. I left the room a little messy but no messier than I have left other places (not very messy) and was charged $150! The desk attendant... More

I had to stay in the area for one night, and chose Econo Lodge because it was the least expensive option. I read the reviews and wasn't sure what to expect exactly as they were pretty mixed.. from the moment I walked in I was greeted by a very nice gentleman,Bill, who was kind and very personable!! I stayed at... More

They have started updating......but...from the outside it reminds you of Bates Motel. The grounds keeper is a little on the weird side. Would I stay for a quick over night stop, yes. Will I do a three night stay again, no.

I was looking for a cheap, clean place to get a good night sleep and this place provided that. It has a throwback type of feel to it. It was probably built in the 50's and has had a few renovations. The grounds were well kept and everything was clean and well cared for. It's not a top of the... More
