This EconoLodge is clean and comfortable. Good management who cares about his property and is updating it. Comfortable beds. Would stay here again. Pretty close to downtown. Only complaint is coffee could be stronger.

Clean. Bathroom fixtures are updated and look new. A few things look dated and don't look shiny clean because of age. There was a very noticable smell of a cleaning spray or maybe air freshener in the room, which became better after I opened the door and aired the room out. Microwave and fridge are a big plus. Wifi works... More

As a budget/low priced hotel the Roanoke Civic Center hotel is geographically well situated near the Civic Center and not far from the Transportation Museum and downtown. It is about a 1½ from the Museum, high end Hotel Roanoke, and a bit more to the heart of downtown Roanoke. This is a clean and well maintained hotel with on site... More

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
