The motel feels like a institution and not a motel. It is filthy nasty. They apparently don't know what a vacuum cleaner is. Where they got the photos to place on their website is a mystery. They must have years of old paint on the walls that chipped away and they just slapped a thin new coat over the top... More

I needed a hotel very close to airport due to an early morning flight. I wanted to spend very little mo ey since I really needed just the basics. It served the purpose, somewhat. This was about $50. But I do wish u had spent a little more for something nicer--$100 and up. When I arrived, the parking lot was... More

I appreciate the staff's helpfulness, but this place just didn't ring anything for me, first they didn't have my prepaid booking on file when I got there after a long day of play at King's Dominion. So I was forced to pay TWICE, which one payment was later refunded after over a week of phone calls to the motel checking... More

I was expecting this to be a decent hotel, but the kids here are crazy! They get to do what ever, there are way to many parties, they all last till after 2a, some people have planes to catch, and need the sleep. But there are under aged drinkers and smokers all in the hotel! The people at the front... More

While the desk staff are very nice, the rooms are seriously unkempt. False advertisement on econolodge sign reads "new rooms." These rooms are a health hazard. We had to wear sandals in the room, as our feet would stick to the old, dirty carpet. The room smelled of smoke and cat urine and we specifically asked for a non smoking... More

I stayed at the Econolodge due to a business meeting in the area. I was fortunate to get great service from Hazel. She was very accomodating and nice to me. She gave me a room that was very clean and with no problems. Hazel is the reason I will return and stay at the Econolodge.

We traveled as part of a school group to the Richmond area. The previous reviews about the service were spot-on! Prior to the trip, my colleague had contacted the manager and made arrangements concerning our tax-exempt status and payment options. When we arrived, we approached the attendant behind the walk-up window, as the lobby was locked at 8:30 in the... More

Myself and a friend were in town from WV to have my race car tuned at Performance Auto Sport in Richmond. When we pull up with a car on a trailer, we got all the wrong kinds of attention. Curtains opened, people pointed and got others to come look. There were obvious "transactions" taking place in the parking lot. I... More

I can only comment on the customer service, because i never made it to the room. The girl sitting at the front desk was the rudest check in person i've ever encountered. It took her at least 2 min. to even acknowledge i was there...Then she proceeded to roll her eyes, slamming dam paperwork for me to sign, like she... More
