“The name says it all.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

At Econo Lodge in Bloomsburg, you get economical lodging. Furniture reminiscent of a college dorm, bulky, old-school tv, stained carpeting. You also get a price that's cheaper than the local competition, and it was clean and quiet. I have no complaints - except for one. The coffee-tinged water was undrinkable. Plan on getting your coffee elsewhere.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The Bloomsburg Econo Lodge is located on the property adjacent to the Columbia Mall. There are lots of restaurants nearby as well. It is a short distance from the downtown area. The staff at the hotel was friendly. It was a very warm day and the room was a nice cool temperature when we arrived. Our room had a king size bed, refrigerator and microwave. It was a large space and appeared quite clean. There is a free continental breakfast in the morning. They provide a receipt under your door the last night so you are able to use Express Check Out. This allows you to call the desk when you are ready to leave and depart directly from your room. Overall, a very good experience.

Room Tip: I was attending a wedding and they had a block of rooms with a double bed only. I booked over the i...

Stayed at the Econolodge Bloomsburg PA recently, as the title says, Good for a One Night stay. Nothing fancy and it was clean. The breakfast had many choices and were fresh. The staff was very helpful with any questions asked of them. Its kind of hard to find. Motel sits behind the Mall and never saw a sign, but we found it. I would stay here again if needed.

Our room was ok. We had a king size bed. The bed was good and the internet connection was good too. The only other redeaming quality of this property is that it is right next to a Quaker Steak and Lube, and they gave us 10% off of our meal.
Our room was a smoking room, that being said the smell in the room was not good ( I know it was a smoking room)The whole 2nd floor smells like an old poorly kept apartment building. They have made no effort at all to do anything about this.
Also the A/C in our room bearly kept the room cool. When it cycled on and off it made a lot of noise and made it very difficult to sleep.
We got the room on a hot wire deal. I think it was a very poor decision on my part. When we got there I found out that the AAA rate was even better that the Hotwire rate that we had paid. If you are planning on stopping over in Bloomsburg PA, Stay at the Holiday Inn Express for a few $$ more and have a much better experiance

Stayed two nights; staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean but in need of some upgrade work. The metal entrance door could use some paint or replacing. Windows needs washing and screens. Air conditioner worked (we did lose power because of an area wide blackout - no fault of the motel) the staff used candles and the electronic door openers did work. Other motels in the area were full due to the holidays and this one was about $50 less expensive. We were charged close to what was posted on the back of the room door even with an AAA discount. Had trouble connecting to their WiFi even though we had good signal strength and even in the entrance lounge. They said most people with iPads and iPhones have problems....never did get connected.

Room Tip: All the rooms would be quiet as this motel is located in the back of a very large shopping center an...

Great location and staff. Walking distance to stores and lot of family friendly restaurants. About a 10-15 minute ride to Bloomsburg downtown.
