The title of my review may be misleading a bit because there was no storm but it was a nice find nonetheless. I happened to have stopped in this town on the eve of probably their biggest weekend; the longest garage sale in history or some none sense like that so I was lucky to have even gotten a room...

We were able to check in early which counts a lot for us. Our room 101 is between breakfast room and breakfast room set up and closest to the... More

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

(4) During Teladega Nas Car races, all local motels had raised their rates by 25% to 50% except Econolodge, Fort Payne. We had kept our normal rates. (5) As per guest, he/she likes... 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 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 Furnishings are a little outdated, but everything was very clean and comfortable.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.
