There was no where else to stay otherwise we would have chosen to stay somewhere else. This is a substandard hotel, more like a bad motel. Noisy air conditioning, and an idiot staffing the front desk who could not spell our name regardless of having our passports in front of him. His suggesstion for food places saw us drive up... More

We stayed for several days. Room had an odor or bug spray. Rooms were never vaccumed, dusted, the bathroom and toilet were never cleaned, no fresh sheets and we were there for 5 days. One day no roms in the hotel were cleaned at all. Not a very friendly place to stay. This was once a very nice place with... More

When we told the concierge at check out they seemed less then concerned. We were told that a... More

We made our reservations on Econolodge.com, however when we got to the hotel we were not given the 2 queen bed room we had reserved. We were instead given a very small 1 queen bed room. We went back down to the front desk and we were told if we didn't directly call the hotel to make the reservation, the... More

We weren't here for the beaches, we were just late-night travelers looking for a place to stay before we continued our journey. The property looked nice. The desk clerk was attentive but was new and didn't know much yet. It was expensive, but then we were taking what we could get, which wound up to be a suite, at 9:30... More

In spite of the good reviews here, and the recommendation to stay here overnight for the wedding attended, I found deplorable conditions in room 210. Mold in the bathroom, rust in the tub which did NOT have any stopper. As a bath taker, I took the precaution of asking if they had bathtubs, to which they replied yes, but then... More

This hotel has obviously just been renovated and it shows. Great room, comfortable beds, nice flat screen tv and the whirlpool tub was awesome! The staff were friendly and helpful, even printing directions to a wedding reception for us. It was centrally located in a nice area, close to everything, but still quiet without road noise. I would highly recommend... More

The location and area were great and worked out okay for a family event we attended in Essex. The hotel itself was pretty dumpy. The staff were not friendly. There was mildew growing in every corner of the bathroom- tub, toilet, sink, walls, ceiling. You could actually smell the mildew in the hallway and bedroom. There was rust on the... More
