When you choose Econo Lodge you expect but a bit of carbohydrate and caffeine In the morning, nothing more, and other basics. And that is what you get here. But you also get a very nice woman to check you in and a decent bed. So we were content--and will stay here on our return trip rather than pay twice... More

Check-in area is decent and clean. Employees friendly and pleasant. Lodge is old and in need of complete upgrade, inside and out. Room was clean but had an odor. TV didn't go lower then # 20. Alarm was hanging off wall and started chirping every 15-17 seconds around 1:00 A.M. Internet did not work. Can hear everything in other rooms... More

I stayed here to visit my boyfriend stationed at Fort Lee. We stayed here for the weekend and found it to be a good room for the price. The vicinity to Fort Lee and the mall was great. Darlise from the front desk recommended some great places to eat and we had a good time. The staff was very friendly... More

I passing through and decided to take the exit. The hotel was easy to find and well lit. Even though it was very late, the staff was very attentive. I was able to checkin very quickly and enjoyed a good night sleep. Being as close as it was off the highway, the location was extremely quiet at night. The bed... More

The Staff was wonderful and accommodating. They switched my room right away when I had an issue. The place is run down but they look as if they are renovating. Our iron wasn't working and the bed was a little firmer than I usually like but both are minor inconveniences. One thing that stood out is that the door to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel after browsing over many other Econo Lodges in the local area and came across this one. First, as other review's have stated it's in the middle of freaking nowhere. I swear I missed the exit a few times trying to find the place. I arrived 30 minutes before midnight and spoke with Mike to... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations! The whole building was very clean. Our room was cleaned extremely well each day. The staff was friendly and gave great recommendations on local restaurants and points of interest.
