Posted a review earlier but not showing up for some reason? I normally stay at higher priced hotels, but was only in town for 1 night and figured why not save the money. I was totally impressed with the friendly person at front desk (I guess the owner?). Got a room that had recently been renovated. They are in process... More

We are usually traveling with a 40 lb. dog and finding NICE pet friendly facilities can be difficult. This is not the case with the Econo Lodge Civic Center hotel. The room was neat, clean and comfortable. The bed and bedding was great. There was no lingering dog odor/cleaning odor from a previous pet. This is not the Ritz, but... More

I'm picky and generally only stay at "better quality" places. I needed a room quickly and in a certain area of Roanoke so I tried the Econo Lodge. What a pleasant experience. The mattress I slept on had never been used, I was the first. Memory Foam and coil springs. The room was very tasteful, the breakfast nice enough. The... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times now and it is still our go to place in Roanoke. The rooms have been or are undergoing extensive renovations and the mattresses are brand new!

I attended a small conference in Roanoke in January, 2015. By staying at the Econo Lodge Civic Center for the three nights I was in town rather than the conference hotel about a mile away in downtown, I saved about $60 per night. I also saved about $10 per night in parking fees at the conference hotel and it cost... More

The heater not working it was off when we checked in. We were given a space heater & told that the room will take awhile to heat since the heater had been turned of. Since we were exhausted we fell asleep fully clothed with the blankets piled on only to wake up to a still cold room. In the middle... More

Just ask yourself one question: Does it make sense to you that a $50/night motel with substandard accommodations (we stayed there and we got what we paid for) would get so many 4 & 5 star reviews? To be clear, I'm not passing judgment or criticizing, just pointing out that it is amazing that we found the only $50/night motel... More

This Econo Lodge is an excellent value. My room was clean, the receptionist (Dee) was superb, the manager was the ultimate professional, and all aspects of my stay were top notch. Even though my work paid for my stay, I chose this Econo Lodge over more "swanky" offerings due to the aforementioned reasons. I will stay at this Econo Lodge... More

This is a great economy motel, the kind you don't find everywhere. The staff clearly care about the property and are very friendly. The room was dated but very clean. I would definitely recommend staying here!
