This is one of the worst experiences I have ever had. We booked 3 rooms for our family. Two of the rooms had an extremely strong odor. It smelled like they were potentially trying to convert smoking rooms to non-smoking and trying to cover odors. For one of the rooms we asked if we could change rooms due to allergies.... More

We had clean comfy beds and the kids loved the pool. I made our reservation 6 months ago since Fort Payne fills up fast for the weekend. Breakfast is pretty much a stretch but there's a Waffle House attached.

Needs major updating and again, The management was very rude after I called to find out why I was overcharged and treated me like it was my fault. I will never give this... More

This was seriously the most vile, and putrid place I've ever laid my head. After a 7 hour ride at 3.am, we decided to rest here then hit the road early in the a.m. Looking back now, I would've made the decision to sleep in a sewage plant over this place. The television was from the 17th century, with grandma's... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was nice, after a good nights sleep. Comfortable, clean room, quiet area, convenient to shopping, restaurants. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and intend to stay again when in the area.

This trip, desk clerk gave me a room on the pool side. When I asked for a different room, she said couldn't change it because I... More

I guess I'm just too old, but I think for $59 a night plus taxes, the room should be nice. This room was just one full bed, with worn carpet and retouched bath tub. Overall, plain shabby without the chic. To be fair, the girl at the front desk was very nice, but she said because I booked through Travelocity,... More

1 To get a cheaper rate you booked your room upstairs. (You wanted a downstairs room) 2 During check in process, we had brought to your attention 3 times to report any problem/s with your room immediately. We would have given you a different room or refunded 100% of your money. We did not hear from you all night. 3... More

I have stayed at this Econo Lodge before, and will stay again next time I'm in the area. The prices are VERY reasonable, and much less than the other hotels close by. (Holiday Inn, Hampton) They had remodeled a lot of the rooms last time I was there, and have finished them all now. New mattresses and bedding, new pillows,... More
