This place is awful. I stayed here for one night at the beginning of a budget road trip around the USA so my expectations weren't exactly high. For the price ($60 inc tax) I expected a bit better. The hotel was practically empty and in a very isolated location. There is nothing nearby. It also looks convenient for accessing the... More

We arrived with a reservation at 4:30 on a frigid February Friday to find the office locked. No one around. After 10 minutes of ringing a bell, a man came around from the outside, let us in and registered us. Our room was 48 degrees, but the heater worked. It had to go pretty hard, because daylight was visible around... More

Not bad if you don't mind economy. The room was clean. Everything worked. Service at the front desk was friendly. Had to use the laundry facility which was on the second level. You can buy laundry soap from a dispenser provided they keep it stocked which it wasn't fully. But the laundry got done thankfully. Would stay here again due... More

Econo Lodge Petersburg offers ample parking for a rental truck-auto trailer rig and clean rooms located well away from traffic noise at budget-conscious rates. An added bonus is the location five-minutes from a selection of five excellent downtown restaurants.

I was in Fort Lee visiting my son who is in the Navy. I called and made my reservations over the phone. I received good customer service. I asked about the negative reviews. The clerk was waiting on me to arrive. It took me less than two minutes to check in. I was pleased with the answers. I only needed... More

It doesn't quite deserve 3 stars, but I'd give it more than 2. Here's why: it was adequate for my needs. I just needed a place to rest my head for one night on my way back home. The bed was clean, and the room reasonably clean. There was some dust on the legs of the bed. The mattress was... More

The room was clean. There is a $10 pet fee not listed anywhere but it was still cheaper than other hotels in the area. There is nowhere to easily park a large truck (moving van for example) so leaving was fun. While not needed, I could not find a handicap ramp or parking near the handicap accessible rooms but it...
