This hotel was booked with Hotels.com. Upon arrival, I found that this hotel did not have hot continental breakfast (which I requested). Me and my family entered the room and began to wipe down with lysol the toilet, tub, sink, tv remote and other known items that are normally touched while staying in a hotel. The white rag was so...

The room was very large and the beds were comfortable. The WiFi was not good. My bathroom door did not shut due to the door frame being busted. The bathtub was big but stopper was no good. Had to use a washcloth. Breakfast was not much at all. Housekeeping was great. Super friendly. Close to stores and food. I would... More

Absolutely the worst. We were booked here at the last minute by a family member, since we needed three rooms for one night during a very long driving trip. The highway approach is filled with strip clubs and pawn shops. Arrived to a frightening check-in with a drugged out patron in the lobby, disgusting run-down public areas and surly service.... More

The hotel was infested with roaches. I reached out to front desk for assistance with the management department and the representative could not locate him. However, I was given another room but we want our money back.

I came to Chesapeake to work, and the most affordable places were not to my standards, kinda of shocking. Some were Daysinn, Quality Inn and Ceder Ridge. I have been staying in Econo lodge since I was a kid, and they have never let me down. It was further than the others but worth it. Nice bed,big screen flat tv... More

I stayed here for one night while passing through Virginia. I had a comfortable second-floor room in which I slept well. Despite being close to the highway the place was quiet. In the morning a basic breakfast was available. On arrival I found that the ac in my room did not work but it was quickly fixed. I was not... More

Room was very spacious and clean. Beds were quite comfortable. Only thing I didn't care for was the a/c when the compressor turned off the fan would turn off, so it was on and off all night long. Actual bathroom where the bathtub/shower and toilet were located could have used a brighter bulb. We were here for a beach trip... More

I will never ever stay a minute much less an hour at this motel again. It was a last minute choice because all surrounding hotels were full. The room reeked of smoke, there were flies flying around, the bed had hair in it and holes in the sheets. The fridge needed more than the wipe down it received......just horrible. We... More

I've stayed at Econo Lodge Chesapeake multiple times while traveling on business. The management and hotel staff was always very friendly and helpful to me. Rooms were decently clean, no bugs. Some people staying here seem to hang around the place; not sure about the surrounding area but I always felt safe here. Ice machine didn't work when I was... More

Don't stay here! This was a dirty, smoke infested hotel (even in the "non smoking" rooms) in a dangerous part of town. The manager is a con-artist who will run your credit card multiple times if you aren't careful - so check your bank statement after you leave. He even admitted to me over the phone two separate times that... More
