“It smelled.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

For the value we got it at, it was not worth it. Rooms were old, and dirty. It smelled, and didn't clear out even with the air circulating all night. They served breakfast, but very limited; it's only enough to hold you over until you actually get to a breakfast place.

The bathroom was clean; however. Also, it was conveniently close to the downtown area.

I will know better next time not to stay at this place, even if it's just for a stop over.

Checked into this hotel when in town for a wedding. Horrible smell in the room when we quickly walked in so we tried to mask the smell with a candle that we bought at a nearby supermarket. Upon closure inspection dirty carpet, dirty bathroom and hair on the towel in the bathroom from someone. The absolute worst is that we saw through the sheet that there was a huge blood stain on the mattress- no question from some sort of crime. After arguing with the front desk who would not give us a refund on the place (nor seemed shocked that we thought someone had been murdered in our room at some point), we checked out in the POURING RAIN and drove down the street to another hotel. There were police in the parking lot- obviously crime is an issue.

Keeping in mind that it's a value hotel, it's actually not a really bad place to stay. My biggest problem was that the Wi-Fi was quite slow, but considering it was free it just boils down to "you get what you pay for". It also would have been nice if the RCA inputs on the TV worked so we could attach our DVD player. The reefer was cold, the water was hot, and the continental breakfast was actually fairly tasty. When we asked for additional pillows, they were provided. We did have a bar of soap left over from the previous guests but aside from that, housekeeping was spot on. If you need snacks I'd highly recommend heading across the street to "Nice Liquor & Video", the store is a bit of a mess, but the owner is a really friendly guy.

Stayed at the Econo Lodge on April 22nd, and was very happy with room. Of course, we knew we were staying in a budget motel, so didn't expect a 4 star place. But the service was good, the room large and clean, used the WiFi, no problems, and it was fast. Breakfast was basic, but good. Since we were going to Castle Park, the location was excellent, close to the freeway and the mall. Also drove to the San Manuel Indian Casino, about a 30 minute drive from the Motel. The in-room Fridge and Microwave also came in handy.

This was one of 3 hotels we stayed at during our Spring Break vacation, and this one was great! The service was wonderful, the room was clean and the price was excellent! I will definitely recommend the Econo Lodge in Riverside to all my friends & family who plan trips there, and I will most definitely stay here again! Aloha & Mahalo!

The room was neat and the staff was friendly and helpful. That is the only nice thing I can say about this hotel. Our water went out nearly every day and the police regularly patrolled the parking lot. We had phone calls to our room in the middle of the night asking for money. The location isn't too bad, if you want to visit a bunch of strip malls. I was there for two miserable weeks and would not recommend it to anyone.

I go to this Motel every year. My recent trip was in March 2009. This is a very good place to stay. It is convenient and reasonable in price. The breakfast each morning is amazing. My room had a TV,Microwave and a refrigerator. The rooms are clean and customer service is awesome! I would recommend everyone to stay in this Motel. It was my one of my best stay!!
