“Budget friendly gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Our family stopped here overnight as we were headed home from spring break. Let me start by saying that we were initially skeptical about all the positive reviews because our experience at budget friendly hotels hasn't been the greatest. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. Check in was easy and the staff/manager were very friendly. Our room was basic with two queen beds. It was very clean and spacious. I was very surprised and happy that we got very little noise from other rooms. All in all we had a pleasant rest. One other nice feature about the location was the Ruby Tuesday's restaurant within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again when traveling through the area.

We stopped here for a night on our way to Gatlinburg. It's located right off the interstate, so it's very easy to get to. The desk clerk was very friendly and they gave us a great rate. Most importantly, the room was VERY nice and clean. I was extremely surprised since I was expecting much less (especially for the price we paid). Everything in the room was updated including a large flat-screen TV with plenty of channels. The hotel also offered a free continental breakfast, although we didn't stay to eat. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I was in the area.

Our goal is always to exceed our guest's expectations. We have recently updated our rooms to include new flat screen televisions, and an expanded continental breakfast. Hopefully, you will get to enjoy some fresh warm waffles and a cold glass of orange juice on your next trip! Please give us a call in the future prior to your arrival so that we may take care of you again.

Stop, sleep, and get on the road. This hotel is perfect for that! The rooms are clean and the breakfast was prepared on time. The price is certainly right and the manager bends over backwards to accommodate the guests. The beds were comfortable, the water pressure was strong, and the location is easy-off/easy-on to the interstate. Sure, there are some small problems like knobs on lamps needing repair and the handle coming off of the tub faucet, but those are easily fixable. Overall, the property is exactly what a weary traveling family needed after driving until past 10:00pm at night. Get to breakfast early, by 6:30am. The area is small and fills up FAST. We will be back!

It was with great hesitation that we try Econo Lodge, based on the previous reviews, but it's all true. This is a great deal. Our room was very clean. Small, but there was a refrig/micro & great flatscreen tv w/plenty of channels(HBO!) Bathroom was just as big as any of the other chain hotels in town & nicely done. Towels are pretty decent, & they are happy to get you more if you need them. Mr. Patel, the owner, is so friendly & helpful, going out of his way to accommodate you. He makes you feel like family. It is fairly quiet, depending on how many & what kind of other guests are staying. We requested a room on the top floor (because we hate it when the guest staying above you is inconsiderate & noisy), but apparently king beds are on the first floor. This hotel has concrete between floors so we never heard anything. This is the kind of hotel where the door opens directly to the parking lot - which is sort of convenient for unloading/loading back up. The heating/cooling system is pretty quiet, set on low, its just enough "white noise". I would definitely recommend this Econo Lodge!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the west (?) side of the hotel, there is a school bus parking lot on the east side...

This is my third time staying at this hotel and as always perfect. Very clean rooms. Great coffee. Mr. patel bends over backwards to make you feel at home. I will stay at no other hotel when I come to Lenoir. Thanks for making my family feel at home.

This place was excellent for our stop on our way to Fla. We stopped late in the day and the owner, Mr. Patel was there checking us in making sure we were happy with our room. The place is older but very clean with very comfortable beds. Pricing was super and he took coupons. Breakfast was included and it was very good. Met all the needs for a traveler. I would definley stop here again

Econo Lodge was not really on my radar, as I usually stay at Best Western, Super 8 or Day's Inn, but the Econolodge in Lenoir City had the old fashioned, back-up-to-the door rooms with microwave and fridge, honored coupons that I like, and I would have had to cross a highway to find the Day's Inn, so I gave it a try. Very clean, everywhere, the beds were exceptionally comfortable, the rooms were quiet and I was not woken by neighbors or road noise once. The manager, Howard, and his staff were friendly and eager to please, the coffee was hot, the waffle maker was clean and worked well, and my stay was altogether most satisfactory. I will return.
