“Good Value Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Very adequate for our overnight stay while driving through area. Newer carpeting, clean room, flat screen TV, and refrigerator. Older building - exterior entrances. Exterior wall air/heating unit. Tub area older, but clean, with curved shower rod. Clean breakfast area, cold cereal, waffle machine, bagel, toast, doughnuts, juice, coffee, no fruit. If looking for a pick-up pizza, go into town, in gas station, found Godfather's pizza, very good, see separate review.

Room Tip: Always ask to see your room

Wife found this hotel on our way home from New Orleans. I always wanted to see caves so found price of $51.wanted it for 3 nights so he gave it to me for $45. It was properly priced for services received. It has a pool but it was closed no fitness center. It did offer shampoo but no conditioner. Room was clean but when we got back tv was on. There was a low quality breakfast. Got to park right in front of room. All said and done it was a nice stay . Lots of chain restaurants to eat at Cracker Barrel and Pizza Hut were awesome.

I know that EconoLodge is not on the top of most people's list of places to stay, but when looking into value some may give in. I stopped by on my way through to give them a chance. I was floored to find an excellent price for a room when others around where $20.00 higher. The room was comfortable with flat screen TV and comfortable beds. The staff were very friendly during out afternoon checkin. James, who was working the desk when we checked in, was very professional and helpful in directing us to local attractions and restaurants.

The ceiling was breaking apart in the lobby, that should have been a sign on what the rooms were like. Our room smelled from bug spray, we had 3 dead roaches in the bathroom, and another dead critter by the phone. The ceiling was caving in over the sink, probably from a water leak. Shavings from the ceiling had fallen on to the sink counter top. Once we saw the conditions of the room, we asked to talked to the manager but he refused to come down. When my husband went to the lobby the front desk clerk said the manager had left. I guess he high tailed it out of there so we could not get our money back. The management did not care at all. It was a flea bag motel and they knew it. We ended up going to the Comfort Inn on the road behind it, much, much nicer with a great staff.

Room Tip: Stay at the Comfort Inn in Cave City

As a fan of Econo lodge, I pretty much know what to expect. Firstly I was surprised to be told at the desk that he would not honor an AARP discount. We booked 2 rooms, one had a faulty AC that they did change out, but it never cooled the room properly. The other rooms AC worked but also did not keep up. There was peeling paint over the bed and the wallpaper was hanging in strips. On a good note, the room was clean despite an odor. We were less than impressed but but stayed due to the fact that rooms in Cave City were hard to come by that night.

Room Tip: Dont expect a $200 room for $80.
