We recently had to transport our son's dog from New Jersey to his new home in Tennessee. We were delighted with our experience at Econo Lodge Civic Center in Roanoke. The motel was an excellent value -- very clean, comfortable bed, and good wireless connection. We were especially grateful to Mr. Patel and his staff. This was our first experience... More

I was travelling to Massachusettes and Roanoke was basically halfway. Stayed here with a friend after making a reservation using the hotel chain's website. Knowing this was an Econo Lodge and having stayed at many Econo Lodges in the past, I was pleased by the friendly attitude of the late night check in (around 11:00 pm). No issues or concerns... More

The Econo Lodge has been renovated recently. The room we stayed in was large and very clean. The owners were friendly and very helpful. The bed was comfortable. The motel is located on a busy, noisy street. We were near the street, but the noise quieted down after 10 PM until about 6 AM. The room did not have a... More

What we liked – - Staff is friendly and attentive - Brand new bathroom fixtures - Refrigerator and microwave in every room - Firm, comfortable beds - Free continental breakfast, plentiful ( the usual fare: Danish, muffins, bagels, cereal) - Hair dryer available...

...but need to warn other travelers! Sure, the owner was very nice and I'm sure they are trying hard. The bathroom had obviously been renovated, but really....granite countertops in a room with huge ugly stains on the ceiling, bed linens full of holes and the most uncomfortable bed ever...seems as if you'd put your money into necessities rather than investing...

Room 255 should not be rented out to people. The curtains have holes in them that let sunlight in. Wallpaper is missing from above the door, under the window, under the sink and a couple other small patches through out the room. The mini fridge was spray painted. There were 5 sticky square spots on the floor that our feet... More
