Not the best, not the worst room we've ever had. This location features very basic rooms that include tv, microwave, fridge, and internet access. The room is featureless with bland wall coverings and no pictures on the walls. The bathroom should definitely been cleaner. Not too sure if we would stay again.

I don't usually call ahead for reservations unless I'm very familiar with a property. We wanted to use our points for a room so I called central reservations for this chain. I was told it was a new property and that 72% of the people like it I took a chance and booked the room. Oh gosh, what a shock... More

I really wished I had seen previous reviews of this motel. Saw bed bugs crawling on the bed and went to the front desk clerk with my mother who was very polite and professional in asking the clerk for a solution to the problem. He declined to come look at the bugs and told us to vacate the premises immediately... More

The front desk crew, Iris Lang, the GM Mr. Gandhi, and the night deskman, a vest from Richmond will soothe and organize the chaos. As a Virgo born in water sign, I go with the flow. This Econo Lodge team cited here removed all obstacles in my way. I can see clearly now.....the rain has gone. Thank you team. Gracias.... More

More than adequate for our needs: a place to sleep and a quick morning breakfast. We we in Staunton for the American Shakespeare Center's Friday and Saturday productions and spent little time in the room.

We liked the area and the hotel was a little outdated but okay. Until we checked out and on our return home the red bite marks started to appear all over, on my face, neck, hands, shoulders, arms. I'm so creeped out, this is so disgusting, check the beds! We were in room 123, the last on the right side.

We were driving from MA to Florida so we had a,ready been on the road for many hours when we finally stopped for the night. We saw this place listed in a brochure we picked up at the Virginia Information and Rest Area. We decided to give it a go. The clerk we had was nice enough. We pulled our... More

We were disappointed with the cleanliness of this hotel. I was so concerned that I put the towel over the chair in the room and we were careful not to sit on the bedspread. The staff was friendly but seemed overworked and glad to report that there were only two more available rooms.

This place was not so great. It was less expensive than the other hotels, but I think I would have enjoyed my visit more if I had stayed at a nicer place. Room was out dated and mis-matched. I generally feel "ITCHY" ever since I left. Not so good. And yes, it is conveniently located near a fire department. That... More

We stayed here for three days and I want to say how pleased I was with our room. It was very quiet and comfortable. In addition, the room was very clean and the hotel was excellently located and near.many fine restaurants.
