I am happy with my stay. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly. I was impressed with the price. The only thing maybe a fridge and microwave in rooms. Definitely stay here again. Waiting for house to finish getting ready

Passing through Fort Wayne for just one night, we chose to stay at the Econo Lodge based upon its low rate and mostly favorable reviews. Overall, l found it to be a well maintained property, and the management responded favorably to our requests. There is a well equipped fitness room and indoor pool, too. Breakfast was the usual 'continental' fare... More

The receptionist barely spoke English. The room is run down and nasty. Mold on the side table, rips on the chair, stains on the bedding, the a/c doesn't work in the room, the toilet was disgusting and some one had used it with out flushing before we got here. I do NOT recommend this hotel!!

Nice clean and tidy room. Good beds. Older TV, but nothing wrong with that, still see everything you need. Not all lights working which made things a little dark. Fridge and air conditioning. Easy access to rooms with double door hallway security system.

Wanted to celebrate my daughter's birthday with a few friends and instantly got harassed when more than 4 guests showed up. I explained to the rude manager Umesh Patel that they are only here to hang out and they are leaving. He kept walking past my room. And when the girls asked for a blanket (for me because my daughter... More

This was the absolute worst hotel I've ever stayed in! My son woke up the next morning with bug bites all over him! The manager and his wife who run it was extremely rude! Made all the kids from our basketball team leave the lobby area at 8pm and told the adults we had to be in our room at... More

This hotel and the owner are horrible!! This was the worse stay I've ever had at a hotel. First they tried to enter our room TWICE on 2 separate occasions without knocking or a warning. Luckily we had the latch on so they could not get all the way in. So this made me not want to leave the room... More

This older hotel is located right off the freeway, & offers a basic room with old style, box televisions, but the bed was comfortable, shower/ sink were adequate with hot water, basic continental breakfast. Not bad for a quick night's sleep.

Had to be downgraded due to no king rooms with refrigerator and I'm here for 3 nights on business. I'd check out if I had time. Presidential debate review I wanted to catch on a news station does not exist! Weak or no signal for wi-fi in room 110; I feel I dropped into a black hole.
