We had been away from home for 4 days and wanted to visit a friend in Evansville. Since Econo Lodge is part of Choice Hotels and we had been very satisfied with Comfort Inns we had stayed in, we stopped at the Econo Lodge to get a room for the night. When we went into the room assigned to us, the bed was unchanged and wet towels and washcloths were on the floor in the bathroom. We contacted the front desk and were switched to another room which was handicapped accessible and part of a suite. The only good thing I can say about the room is that the bed seemed to be clean. It also tended to dump occupants into the center. Upholstered furniture (desk chair and club chair) was spotted and nasty. The bathroom did not have a place for commodities which required use of the sink - toothbrush, space for a denture bath, special cleansers, etc. The lights in the bathroom only stayed on for a limited amount of time. When they switched off, occupants of the bathroom were completely in the dark. All of the supplies in the bathroom were at the opposite end from the shower. I pity the handicapped person who got caught in the shower without everything necessary sitting on the floor just outside the curtain when the lights went off. Luckily, I had my husband to come in and turn the lights back on and bring me a towel. Our night was constantly interrupted by other guests yelling and screaming from room to room and in the hall, slamming doors and pounding on walls and doors. The staff suggested that they quiet down once, but the suggestion was not taken seriously. When we left at 6:30 the next morning, the hall was the quietest it had been all night. This experience has impacted not only our impression of Econo Lodge, but also the entire chain of "Choice Hotels".
