Although the room was outdated, it was clean and the customer service was excellent. The beds were pretty comfortable. The shower however was not good. The water stings your skin and the temperature was hard to adjust.

If you don't mind bugs in your hotel room and holes in the wall then stay here. It's a cheap motel. Front desk was very friendly but the hotel is disgusting. Old bedspreads and holes in sheets and blankets. I was afraid to pull the covers anywhere near my face.

This is hardly a luxury hotel, but it's not trying to be. For the price, I was impressed and would totally stay here again. It had its little problems, like the AC unit being slightly too loud, or the bathroom door handle being slightly too loose, but seriously, this is a cheap hotel along the Interstate, why would I complain...

the hotel is on a rough dark dead end road, and coming upon it after 9 PM alone at night was a bit intimidating, especially because you cannot even see the hotel form the start of that road. once inside, however, it was a surprising comfort. My issue was the horrid continental breakfast, with the worst coffee I have ever... More

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
