My family and I were tired and hungry, so we stopped in for a bite at Cracker Barrel, there beside it, was a nice looking place for us to spend the night, when we entered a very nice young lady was there at the front desk, she greeted us with a friendly smile and a lovely southern accent. She was very helpful in all of my million questions, she even showed us on a map exactly where our room would be, and welcomed my children to cartoons while I got directions for the next day. The room was very clean, the linen smelled clean and pleasant. The furniture wasn't new but it wasn't broken down either, the next morning, Tammy, the housekeeper, was very friendly and offered us room service and extra towels, we stepped out for breakfast so she could clean, when we returned our room was a fresh as the first time we walked into it. She even fluffed my pillows... My wife especially loved how she cleaned the bathtub and sink area... I will definitely be telling my friends an co-workers about this place, the price and quality was above my expectations...

Was not expecting much but stopped as we were headed to the beach. Both evening and morning desk clerks were friendly and helpful. Room was much better than I thought it would be. Furniture was showing some wear but room was clean and bed comfy. Breakfast was simple continental, coffee was good and Krispy Kreme donuts are always tasty!

Been coming here for several years now, and it is very reasonably priced and personnel are very friendly. They've recently change managers, and the new manager is as friendly and polite as the one that left. The staff personnel are courteous and professional when assisting guest. The Hotel is a little aged but well mantained and all rooms go outside which I appreciate. Highly Recommened!

Located next to the Cracker Barrel restaurant and near the Interstate, this motel was easy to find and was very clean. This was a surprise to find such a nice, quiet place in a traditionally lower standard brand of Choice Hotels. After all, it is named 'Econo-Lodge' after all! Nicole was very helpful with check in and had a super personality. The room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was minimal (Continental), but the Krispy Kreme donuts and fresh coffee was great. I wish they had half-n-half rather than powdered creamer, but that is all that would have made this stay any better. Great job!

Room Tip: If you are concerned about noise, choose the upper floor. Fewer people, and quieter!

The Econo Lodge staff, especially Nicole, is very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As a new management, I am interested to introduce Half&Half and also French Vanilla Creamers, you are the second person to mention it, and we will have it by next week.
We like to hear any suggestions you may have for us or any constructive critics, because eventually, we like to hear what ideas of improvement our guests have to share with us, and it’s our responsibility to listen and do the necessary changes or upgrades to please the guest.
Hopefully next time you stop by, we will have different creamers, we will be happy to see u again.
Thank you.

My wife, daughter and I recently drove up for a weekend USM football game and stayed at the Econo Lodge off of Hwy 49. A very dismal place to stay and an unpleasant experience, I must say. Was about 88 degrees with near 100% humidity outside. When we entered the hotel room, the temperature and humidity were about the same inside and it took the tiny overworked A/C unit over an hour to get the room acceptably cooled down. The bathroom was down right disgusting with mold, mildew and God knows what else kind of filth around the top and bottom of the shower stall. Even saw a couple of bugs - one was a roach and not sure what the other one was. The mattresses were about as hard as sleeping on plywood and I'm still having back spasms. The pillows were extremely thin and hard and I went to the front desk to ask if we could have a couple of extra pillows to get us through the night. The gentleman behind the desk flipantly said that they couldn't do that and that they didn't have any extra pillows to loan out. Judging from the lack of vehicles in the parking lot, I'd say that the hotel was only at about 25 -30% occupancy and if customer satisfaction had been a priority, they could have taken a couple of pillows from one of the empty rooms and loaned them to us for the night. I guess our first clue about the condition of the place should've been the two rednecks hanging over the balcony drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and watching our every move as we unloaded the car. Econo Lodge corporate HQ should make a surprise visit to this one. We won't be back.

The Econo Lodge Team would like to apologize for the inconvenient. We usually do have extra pillows for the comfort of all guests, and we are sorry that we didn't have any extra when you requested it. We just received our regular shipment that includes extra pillows. Hopefully we can accommodate you in your future stay with us. We like to take any comments constructively to better our service in the future.
