“Mixed feelings.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

Was there for the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. Stayed here and took the metro at Vienna Fairfax station (10 mins).

I like:
- the friendly, helpful and accomodating reception staff.
- convenient location (Asian restaurants,McD and 7Eleven nearby)
- availability of hot water/coffee/chocolate drink all the time at the lobby area
- the clean room, new bathroom
- free wifi

The only thing that I was not happy with is the fact that the non-smoking room is reeked with tobacco smell. But you can change to another room within 20 mins upon check-in.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

This just about passed muster but was very expensive considering the lack of amenities. The breakfast was awful so we went back to the room to eat our own food. The desk clerk was not particularly welcoming which doesn't set a good tone.

I have stayed more than once at the EconoLodge and have to say that the total lack of amenities and the condition of the rooms are appalling. The first time I stayed there I was too tired to do more than sleep and leave the next AM, had been driving all day. I decided to give it another try, thinking I may have just been unlucky the first time. The rooms are very small and shabby and they obviously have not heard of air freshener. The bathrooms are VERY small, with barely enough room for tub, toilet, and sink. You could shower and brush your teeth at the same time! The tiles were chipped and broken. The staff at the front desk were marginally helpful but friendly enough. There are far better choices in Fairfax for the same money that offer far more and are much cleaner. I have noticed that on all the web sites featuring hotels the EconoLodge offers very little information about their hotel. I know why!
