My husband and I travel to the Roanoke once a month on average. Every time we stay we make sure we stay here. They always try to accommodate us with the same room since we both have disabilities. The staff go the extra mile to ensure your stay is comfortable. We have been very pleased with all of our stays thus far.

The owners are nice people who are doing upgrades to this older building. All I care about is room being clean and bed comfortable . High marks for that .my room had new carpeting and shower had hot water. Add 60 TV channels , micro wave , fridge and free WiFi. What more do you want when its blocks from downtown and great price? Read the other reviews owners very accommodating.

We stayed one night here on a cross country from New York to LA. The rooms were clean and well looked after. The host was especially hospitable. He made sure we could address any problems we may have had and gave us great advice regarding our trip. Given the cost this hotel is unmissable!

I stayed with my wife on the way to Nashville. Our room was very clean; the bathroom newly remodeled. The bed was very comfortable.

Continental breakfast was simple, but "hit the spot". The danishes and bagels were fresh.

The hotel is run by a hard-working, super-friendly family who will do all they can to make your stay comfortable.

The hotel is located off of a busy main road and you can hear the trucks driving by. No big deal for us since we're heavy sleepers.

The hotel is dog-friendly ($10 fee) which is very reasonable.

We stayed here overnight on a trip to FL. I originally booked this property based on a TA review praising the owner,Blavik Patel. It was spot on. Having spent many a night on the road, I have never experienced a host as hospitable as Mr. Patel. Whatever our concerns, he made sure we were satisfied- even to his recommendation for dining!

Mr. and Mrs. Patel are striving to upgrade their property and put $$ into the physical plant, rather than spend it on advertising. Rooms were immaculate and everything functioned well. It is what it is- basic, clean accommodations.

Room Tip: Level 2, and toward rear of property will tend to be quieter.

I recently spent a night at the Econo Lodge in Roanoke on my way further north. Weather was getting bad where I was heading and I needed a place to stay for the night. I chose the Econo Lodge based on location and price. When I checked in I was greeted cordially by a gentleman I later discovered was the owner of the hotel. As soon as I began the check-in process, he recognized my status with Choice Rewards. I have to say that as often as I stay at Choice hotels, this was the very first time I had been acknowledged in this manner and I really appreciated it.
The room was basic, which is all I was expecting. It had all the usual amenities, was clean, had a good selection of cable channels and internet connectivity. It may sound funny but there was one particular feature that I really appreciated; the location of the shower head. I am rather tall and often find myself having to stoop over to take a shower in older hotels. It's not the end of the world but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shower head was nice and high. I found out later that this was a recent renovation of the rooms.
The most impressive aspect of my stay was a conversation I had with Mr. Patel, the hotel owner. He is young, energetic, enthusiastic and a pleasure to talk with. He is absolutely "customer-driven" and as someone in the customer service industry, I really appreciated his attitude. He realizes that there are still some renovations necessary to his hotel but he is working hard to make improvements and really cares about his business and his customers. I would gladly clone him and hope that he would work in many of the hotels where I stay. His level of customer service was outstanding and he made a routine overnight stay in the hotel a memorable one.
I wish Mr. Patel and his wife continued success in their endeavors and would gladly stay at the Econo Lodge again next time I am in the area. Good job!!
