This was my first time staying at an Econo Lodge. My fiance and I wanted some time alone for New Year's Eve but we didn't want to travel too far. Econo Lodge Arena fit the bill perfectly. There is ample parking and plenty of stores within walking distance or within a 5-10 minute drive. Check-in and check-out were smooth and... More

Stayed here New Years eve after a night out at the casino,we were very happy with our stay! Very inexpensive and our room was very clean and comfy. I have to say that the best part of it was the breakfast provided in the morning. I've stayed in plenty of hotels before that offered breakfast and usually it's just dry... More

Due to unfortunate life circumstances, I lived at this hotel for two months. During my stay everyone I met and all the staff were absolutely incredible. Front desk, housekeepers, maintenance and even the breakfast attendant went above and beyond to assure my stay was exceptional. It would be difficult to express my appreciation to everyone for everything. You are truly... More

This hotel is nothing fancy but it's clean, quiet, and comfortable. We stop here as a half way point while traveling because its convenient and safe. We also travel with a dog and they allow for pets for only a ten dollar fee. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is affordable and we will stay here again.

I stopped at this hotel while traveling to Groton CT to visit my daughter and her family, the hotel was very clean, the room was very clean, in fact they give you an inspection sheet to fill out if you can find anything that does not meet your standards, with a chance to win something in a drawing every month,...

Great value for the price and a great location with food right close!! Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean! What more can you ask for? Granted this is not the Hilton but it's also much cheaper than the high hotels!

I was hesitant to book Econolodge, I usually pay more. Note I didn't say I normally stay at a nicer place. This place is as good or better than many that charge double. It is immaculate, it is handy to the interstate, the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast was totally adequate. They even gave us a free spin... More

Excellent location close to Interstate 81 and close to donut shops and restaurants. The free breakfast was excellent with everything you could possibly wish for a great... More

This place was absolutely wonderful. The staff was courteous, very friendly, and helpful. Our room was spotless especially for a smoking room. Bed was comfortable. Location was great. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, especially for the price, which was very reasonable. If we're ever back in town this is the only place we would stay.
