This Econo Lodge provided what I always looks for: hot water and good beds. This hotel is in the sticks also know as the boonies. As such, there weren't many other guests at the hotel and it was very quiet. At first, I thought someone didn't flush the toilet before we got there because the water in the toilet looked... More

The front desk at check in was very nice and helpful. The room was dingy, everything, moldy smell, filthy bathroom, and extremely filthy / moldy shower and vanity area floors. The fridge in the room was noisy like a tractor trailer so we had to disconnect it for the night. The towels might have been white 10 years ago, but... More

Sometimes lower price motels can be less than desirable. The Econo Lodge in South Petersburg proved to be a pleasant surprise. The room was clean--spotless in fact, and the bed was firm enough to be comfortable. Dont bother with the "free breakfast"--go up the highway a little ways and find a fast food place for a cheap, and better, meal.

The front desk was was very nice and helpful. That was very reassuring because the place is on a dead end street and is run down. The room was clean enough but the mildew smell strong. No wifi connection. The pool is empty. The breakfast is orange colored juice and coffee/tea with stale cereal. The bed was comfy. I felt... More

Stayed here for a night with my daughter and our 2 dogs on our way to ny. They were pet friendly so that was a plus and right off I95 so it was decent. Front desk was nice and helpful plus I liked the fact it was empty no one to bother

After reading several reviews on this place, I decided to roll the dice and make a reservation. After all, I was traveling alone and only needed a spot to sleep for the night. Yes, this place is located on what appears to be a dead-end road. Yes, it is old and past it's prime. If you are the nostalgic sort,... More

Happily found a clean room after a long day in the car, I would stop here again! No restaurants close by, eat before you get here. Everything is north in Petersburg! Although the desk clerk said there is a Chinese place that would deliver here.

Booked this room through priceline. Im not really sure why priceline considers this a 2 star. It should be a 1 star hotel, thats what it felt like. The living area seemed clean, the bathroom could have used a good cleaning, hair on the floor. TV worked, front desk was nice, a few questionable guests staying close by....Its close to... More

Pricelining a 2 star hotel is always risky - but usually if the hotel is new it's okay. This one, thought, not new, was really better than okay. Clean, comfortable beds, decent shower . . .and very affordable. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful . . .it was a great stop for the night. Breakfast was substandard - but free... More

It's a bit far away from downtown Petersburg but the staff is friendly and the hotel room I stayed in wss clean enough. Don't believe the negative reviews. The hotel is a good value for what it is - chain motel.
