“Never stayed at an econo lodge but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

I've never stayed at an Econo Lodge and probably won't again, not because of the hotel but because I'm a bit of a snob. This stay was not planned, it was last minute. I have to admit it was a pleasant surprise. Although no amenities , after all it is a motel not a hotel , it was clean, spacious and reasonable. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. Fridge and microwave in room which also had sitting area with couch.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

The room was very clean and large. We booked a King room for 2 nights. It was larger than anticipated in that there was a small couch and coffee table on one side of the room, with a room divider between it and the bed area. The room also had a refrigerator and microwave. There was a coffee maker located in the room, but we really didn't get the coffee or creamer/sugar to go with, so we didn't make any coffee. Like someone else said in their review, there was no breakfast, only a small area in the office for donuts, a few muffins or bagels and coffee. We did not partake. The biggest problem with this motel is the beds are extremely hard. We had a group with us and we had 3 separate rooms and everyone complained that the beds were too hard. Also, there was a soda machine on one side of the building, but there wasn't anything available to purchase. You would think the machine could at least be filled on some sort of schedule. All in all, the motel is clean and neat, but I will not stay there again.

It was my first stay at this hotel and it was affordable considering it was the 150th anniversary weekend in gettysburg. the room was a bit small, but clean, it had a nice size refrigerator and microwave, as well as a coffee maker in the room. the bed was ok, but after a day in the field in was better than sleeping on the ground. the continental breakfast could be expanded, but the area is very small and it is more a get and go breakfast. but all in all it was an ok place to stay. it did have wifi, but would use an update on the tv's and cleaner channel guide.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the second floor

I like to camp in Gettysburg, but now I have two children who aren't ready for that. I stayed two nights here and the staff was very friendly. I was grateful that it was at a good rate. The only negative was that the beds were a bit too hard for me. There were other families here and they seemed to be kid-friendly which I appreciated, unlike the Super 8 which is twice the price and horrible staff/service. If you want to save some $$ to spend around Gettysburg, stay here if you can handle hard beds.

Since the prices of hotels just keep sky rocketing in Gettysburg, we decided on the econo lodge this year as its a little more budget friendly. The staff there are very friendly and helpful......the whole hotel was surprisingly clean and the grounds were very nice and well kept........having said all that, the bed was the most uncomfortable I'd ever slept in. Woke up every morning with a stiff back, if they'd upgrade their beds I'd probably never stay anywhere else!

We were leaving Gettysburg thinking we'd stay in a cheap motel someplace further out. I decided to check online and found the Econo Lodge in Gettysburg with a room for $67. It only had two stars but we booked anyway. (It's amazing you can find and book a motel in minutes using a smartphone!!) We were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the room, the king-size bed, the bathroom, the service and even the simple breakfast. Everything is new, clean and well cared for. Breakfast was sweet rolls, bagels and cream cheese and blueberry muffins, plus juice and coffee if you want it - just enough to send us on our way. If we are ever in this area again, we will stay here. There is absolutely nothing negative about this motel. And at $67, it was a steal!

Room Tip: There's a train that runs nearby but I didn't hear it even though we were close to the track...

This hotel should be avoided. We spent 2 nights on a volunteer work weekend at the park. On Saturday morning we left at 7:30 am and returned to clean up at 3 pm. A used towel and the one used soap were gone. The bed was not changed or made.

We left again at 3:45 pm for a ranger talk and when we returned nothing had changed. Sunday morning on leaving we explained our disappointment and the manager was more interested in trying to call the cleaning staff rather than sincerely apologize.
