I stayed for a couple nights at the Econo Lodge in Waynesville over the Independence Day holiday weekend. For the holiday weekend, most places were booked, so I was glad to find something reasonably priced. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with my stay. The room and bathroom were quite spacious - I had a handicapped room, so maybe all the... More

The new management have really been working..Everything has been cleaned We had new linens and it appeared that the curtains were new. While there i observed all the lampshades being cleaned or replaced. The breakfast selection has improved. Lastly, everyone was very friendly. We were delayed and did not arrive until after midnight. The office was closed and I had... More

It was July 4th weekend and everywhere we went there was no vacancy. We found one place but they wanted way to much. So we ran across this place and we were so glad. The price was great and the view of the mountains was awesome!!!

Took a last minute trip to the mountains for Memorial Day weekend. Prices were reasonable, rooms were clean and staff was super friendly. Pool is not heated so be warned that if going in early summer it can still be quite cold due to the mountain evening temperatures.

We chose to stay here as a rest stop before heading out on the long trek home. Room was clean, was pet friendly. The only downfall was the continental breakfast. Compared to some of the other hotels around not much was offered. Would choose to stay again.

My family was searching for a pet-friendly hotel in scenic Waynesville, North Carolina, and we are glad to have stayed at this place. I think it is family owned and operated, and the employees are very accommodating. The rooms are clean, it's half the price of other hotels, and there are tons of nearby restaurants and an Ingles supermarket. The... More

The room was clean and beds decent. Can't really complain with the price point it's at. The location is confident to the highway. However the drive up the entrance can get a bit dicey if someone isn't paying attention when they are coming at you.

I stayed at this Econolodge because where I was working out was right across the street. The Econolodge is located on a big hill and the views are outstanding. The rooms had balconies and I stayed on the balcony the whole evening. The sunset was awesome. The Econolodge also was very inexpensive for what you get. The room was clean... More
