This establishment was clean, very reasonably priced and well located for our interests. We were travelling to the Nascar race and to the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival. There were many other patrons who also stayed here that attended the Sunday Nascar race. If they could improve on one thing, it would be their breakfast menu. After speaking with the new... More

I stayed at the Econo Lodge at the end of October on business. I saw the reviews on Tripadvisor and thought to take a chance. I was very happy with my stay and enjoyed talking with the owner. He is very enthusiastic about making the hotel even better for my next trip thanks again I had a nice stay!

Although not a bad place for the cost, I think there is a lot of work that needs to be done to make it an excellent stay for the money. According to the manager, who took over in April, they are planning a lot of refurbishing, and have replaced a lot of the mechanical systems already. I would remark that... More

Don't even believe the pictures that are shown for this site. Furniture was from early 70's badly scared and worn out. Our bathroom door was most likely punched in so hard the door frame was broken and repaired with 2 roofing nails (at least they were painted). Rust on back of hinges was so thick it has stained the wall... More

The owners are very nice and did a remarkable job of seeing that I could remain in the room I liked for my last-minute two night stay. And the single-bed rooms have a sofa!!--in addition to microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Not a bad deal for $55, I'd say!

At first the hotel looks less appealing, right of a busy street and with a lot of asphalt around it. But the service is really friendly. Also found the complimentary breakfast really good for a place with this price. The room was quite spacious. Nothing out of the ordinary but everything worked I did have some trouble with the internet,... More

I was a bit nervous driving up to the office of this motel, it looked a bit seedy and it's right next to a very busy highway, but the woman who checked me in gave us a room as far away from the road noise as she could and offered to switch us if we wanted. The room was clean... More

This hotel is situated very close to downtown and has easy access to Blue Ridge Parkway. We got off from parkway and stayed overnight. There is subway and Sheetz next door and many restaurants in less than a mile vicinity. Bhavik who manages this property, does a pretty good job in personally taking care of all guests.

When shopping online, I was impressed by the highly competitive pricing this Econolodge offered. The owner and staff were very courteous and friendly. The room was clean and well kept. Everything smelled pleasant and everything worked. I can tell the new owner is working very hard to provide a positive experience for the guests.

This hotel is an excellent bargain. Yes, it would be considered budget. But the relatively new managers are busting their behinds by renovating all rooms, among other things including tiled bathrooms with new toilets & great high-up shower heads; carpets cleaned; a/c units cleaned and freshened. And the quality of sleep was excellent. The room was fresh and clean, absolutely... More
