I visited this place two months ago and it was one of the worst. I wrote a review about the hotel and the DM promised me that they would refund me my night stay a MONTH AND A HALF ago twice and I haven't seen it as of yet. The floors had trash on them. The walls had splashed food... More

Stayed there two nights ago for my son's sporting event. Figured we'd get a few more souveniers with the money we'd save there over the Marriott. Big mistake. First, let me say that the staff at the desk were both polite and as helpful as they could be. Problem was they didn't have much to work with. From the dead... More

I was traveling back to South FL and had a unexpected delay. We found the Econo Lodge by chance as it was close the hospital I needed to be near. We stayed Sept 10-12 last week. The staff was awesome. Everyone from Front desk, Kitchen, morning restaurant servers and ground were exceptionally nice and made our stay feel like home.... More

We stayed at Econolodge for 7 days in early May to attend my daughter's college graduation. I let Priceline choose the motel and was a little concerned when I read the reviews. To save some money, we chose a motel that served breakfast as of of the package. Although we ate there every morning, the menu never varies and gets... More

We had been to this motel last year, and decided to come back. We were pleasantly surprised to see the difference one year made. The place was definitely in better shape. Although it wasn't too bad the year before, this year we felt the big effort had been made to make it cleaner. In fact the window in our room... More

The price was good if you don't mind a few roaches. The heater/air conditioner was old and antiquated and took forever to heat up. My mother's room had an incredibly old TV that didn't work well. Other than all that it was ok. I recommend staying there as a last resort.

This hotel was somewhat like stepping back in time. Although it was old and a little worn, it was mostly clean and inviting. What it lacked in looks was made up for by the friendliness of the staff. We enjoyed sitting out by the pool even though it was slightly raining. There were not many people around so the staff... More

The pool is never open. They say that they just put chemicals in it and it has to sit for a while before anyone goes in, but an employee told me that it hasn't been open for months. Watch out for shady characters. Definitely don't bring kids here./

At the time of your stay, we had just purchased the hotel and were just getting started on the improvements. The pool had been closed for 3 summers and we were trying desperately to get it operational. We are so sorry for your inconvenience, and if you ever are in the Sumter area again, please give us a try. I... More
