The stay was wonderful 😊😊 from the time we checked in till the last day. We always try and keep our room neat so they had no worries. Everyday when we returned the beds were made and new towels given. During the storms when the TV acted up they were on it to make it right. Both the gentleman talking... More

Literally all other name-brand motels in Auburn/Opelika were either full of had doubled their rates when we visited (due to a rodeo and coach's clinic). We had never stayed at an Econo Lodge prior to this and hope to avoid doing so in the future. I do give them credit for not jacking up their rates, they are readily accessible,... More

Booked thru an online site and non-refundable, upon arrival at 10:30 pm with two 15 year old and one 17 year old girl, found the bedspreads to be filthy. The room had not been vacuumed and worst of all, all the walls were covered in grime! Sketchy people gathered in parking lot all night meeting up and loud music. Did... More

The picture on the ad is taken from the most flattering angle. This is a sad little property way out on the outskirts of Opelika with the absolute minimum of frills. Room is dark, dreary and very small, we'd feel absolutely claustrophobic if the ceilings weren't taller than normal. Bare bones bathroom with thin towels. Paint obviously touched up (with... More
