The motel is real nice. The management is really kind. The rooms were like a 5 star hotel in Vegas; spacious, comfortable bed, bathroom real nice, variety of channels on TV. Breakfast was real nice. The value is really good. Service was excellent. Don't listen to the reviews. This is the real deal.

Refrigerator quit running. Spoiled our contents in it. Had to kill a roach. Couldn't get into the breakfast room at 6:30 as told. Will never recommend this hotel and... More

...even if running up the I-95 corridor leads you to this place, do look twice. Picked this out of one of those ubiquitous flyers that list discount prices if you present the coupon on arrival with no advance reservation. This is the only Quality Guest Privileges hotel in the 5 that we've used recently that wouldn't take my membership, claiming... More

Rooms are nice, a... More

The price was right, and the location (re both I-95 and downtown Richmond) was reasonable, and supermarket very close. There was a microwave (which I didn't use) and a frig, but no coffee maker. Breakfast was sparse, but acceptable. Air conditioner was noisy, and seriously interfered with sleep. I never did figure out how to turn on the TV. I... More

When I arrived I wasn't all that sold on this motel. But we received a room downstairs in the corner. It was very spacious everything was clean... It was a smoking room but you wouldn't have been able to tell. The bathroom was large, the tv was rather small but manageable. Overall it was a very decent pleasant experience for... More

The Manager and his staff at this Econo Lodge are outstanding. After arriving late on a Saturday night and finding that my reservation had been messed up by ORBITZ(I had reserved NON-SMOKING rooms. ORBITZ had reserved SMOKING rooms), the manager helped me resolve the PROBLEM with ORBITZ. Had to cancel the ORBITZ reservations. The rooms I finally got, which were... More

Trip to Orlando, Fl, with 2 year old! Paid 60 for 1 night. Thought it was expensive but we were tired & just wanted to sleep the night! The room is outdated, smelly, cigarette burns on sheets! Definitely not worth that kind o money...
