“If you like to pay $90 per night for a $40 room, this place is for you.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I am sitting in the room as I write this review about 3 hours after checking in. I never write reviews on hotel rooms, but felt compelled to in this case. Overall, the room is dingy, old, musty, and the bed is disgusting. I found hairs all over the bed spread, as well as the blanket underneath (the one that is supposed to washed). The furniture looks like it fell off of Fred Sanford's truck and bathroom felt like a prison cell. Room felt damp and smelled musty. Definitely not $90 quality... Also, doors open to the outside (no hallways), which feels less safe. Stay here as a last resort

We arrived on a Saturday night and it was raining very hard. Glad we picked this chain. The clerk quoted us the standard rate, but ultimately dropped 10 dollars off. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. We got an early start on our way to Orlando Fl. Had a quick breakfast and checked out. All in all, we could have stayed on base, as I am retired military but chose to there instead. Glad we did.

Room Tip: Free WiFi - comfortable and inexpensive room. Nice check in Clerk.

I decided to go to Biloxi on the spur of the moment. The weather was bad and it was late, so I decided to spend the night. I didn't want to spend a lot of money to just sleep and go. I drove down Beach Blvd and they had vacancies. I decided to take a chance and was pleasantly surprised at this moderately priced motel. Check in was smooth and I found myself in a very nice, clean room. Breakfast was a very small selection if appropriate items. All in all, for the price, this is an excellent place to stay.

I stayed here for about 3 weeks while on business in Mississippi. The room was decent and the bed comfortable. It was kept clean, although it is a little dated. But for the price, it is well worth it. The room came with a decent TV and cable. The Wifi is slow and spotty, but if you're just trying to check email it isn't too bad. The pool and tennis court are nice, and it is in a good location (restaraunts, beach, etc.).

We took a mini vacation and I used my alumni discount to get a great price at Econo Lodge. Everything was nice and clean. HUGE tv that worked well. Decent sized pool. Main complaint was having to run the smoking gauntlet every time we came in or out of our room and the breakfast room. Though the non smoking in rooms rule seemed to have been observed, it was pretty bad to have to walk through clouds of smoke from all the smokers on the walkways, outside of the breakfast room (which was very nicely decorated and clean), and pool. The only other complaint was free breakfast wasn't much, steamed sausage patties, coffee, one beat up banana was the only fruit, and a waffle iron. Waffles were good, as was the orange juice.

The location is very good, being just across the street from the beach. While the room was dated, it was generally clean other than the trash not having been emptied, with a packet of cigarettes left in the can (more on this in a moment). The beds are comfortable, and the breakfast serviceable and in alignment with expectations for this class of hotel.

I booked the room via the Comfort Hotels iPhone app (very nice app- easy to use), which didn't clearly note any special conditions such as the $150 deposit required upon check-in. I travel a fair amount for business, and don't recall any hotel I've stayed in over the past 10 years requiring an up front deposit when the room is paid for via credit card- I can't say that any more. This hotel required the room rate plus deposit to be paid for up front, stipulating a room inspection prior to checkout and the subsequent refund of your deposit, noting that this is to protect them from incurring damage due to smoking or pets.

What made this interesting was the discovery of an open package of cigarettes in the trash (gee thanks, but we don't smoke) left in the room, leading one to believe either this was an interesting mistake, or an open door to allow the hotel to withhold a refund. In any event- we removed the trash prior to the inspection to eliminate the possibility of any confusion or refund issues. It was interesting to note that the checkout refund of the deposit was made with the credit card terminal "off line", leading the clerk to note that the refund "may or may not show up in a few days"- is this hotel owner holding the deposits to earn just a few more pennies of interest?

Please note that the room inspection will cause a slight delay in the checkout process, and that if you've not checked out by 15-20 minutes prior to the checkout time that you'll receive a helpful call from the front desk to make sure you're up and moving out. Perhaps this is a byproduct of being near the beach on a long weekend, but the service experiences and surprises didn't make this a pleasant experience.

I won't be staying here again.

Dear Mr. Stanley, I'm sending you this email in regards to your recent stay at our hotel and to apology for any inconvience you experienced. We are especially sorry for the long wait that you experienced upon check-out as a result of our security deposit policy. That policy has recently been reviewed and has been discontinued as of this week. Again, we are sorry for the negative experience that resulted from it. In regards to the issue about the cigarette package in your room's trash can, we've gone over this with housekeeping, and again we apologize for the incident. We hope that this will not tarnish your impression of the Econo Lodge brand and hope that you will continue to stay at Choice Hotels in the future. Thank you, Dina PatelManagement
