While traveling from Bon Aqua, TN to MS we traveled through Fort Payne, Alabama. We stopped at 2:30 a.m. To check availability at Econo Lodge. The lady at the counter, Melanie, was very friendly. She helped us get a room at a reasonable price very quickly. Our room was nice and clean and we slept very well with no disturbances.... More

If you don't have a credit card, you can't stay here. Grounds are in disrepair and stairs are in bad shape. I suggest going elsewhere anyway as their pool is empty anyway.Poor poor poor............. poor

(1) If the guest had noticed, he would have noticed that there was all kind of repair work going on, therefore, things were not as clean as it should be. (2) We accept cash, however, for back up we require credit card. There are some guests, who simply cause damage to the room. (smoke in non smoking room, sneak in... More

Comfortable night sleep. Clean, comfortable, staff friendly. Suggested they get a new toaster for the breakfast room. This was the only problem. Insignificant problem. Will stay again when passing through or visiting family.

Only needed a room for one night & did not reserve ahead of time. Checked prices on the Choice Hotels web site while enroute. They would not honor the price quoted on their own web site but did say that we could sit down in the lobby & book online if we wanted to do that. Prices were higher for... More

(1) The rate guest had obtained on web site was for upstairs for a single bed. The guest wanted two beds and down stairs room. (2) Down stairs rooms have better amenities and convenience of parking in front of room. Therefore, downstairs room prices are higher. (3) T. V. Was 27 " color T.V. required by Econolodge, Franchise.

Only needed a place to stay for one night for a concert we were attending in the area. Furnishings are a little outdated, but everything was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is convenient to restaurants and attractions. Would stay here again if in the area.

The room was spotless and comfy and very convenient. We were just a few miles from Little River Canyon - beautiful spot - and Desoto Falls State park. There are many little antique stores and quanint little shops in Fort Payne and Menotne, just 12 miles away.

First time we stayed here we were slightly disappointed but decided to try them again on short notice.. The desk clerk was the same lady from the first visit and I have to say she is definitely what made our stay over the top. She was exceptionally friendly and willing to accomodate no matter what the issue or circumstance. Great... More
