Although the outside of this motel looks run-down, the rooms are excellent. Clean, fresh looking. Staff is friendly and ready to help. Breakfast is fine Price is very reasonable. I recommend it to all.

This is a very good value hotel in a great location. It is located up a steep drive with stunning views of the mountains. The room was spacious and very clean. The cute little rocking chairs on the balcony are a nice touch. The beds were extremely hard but the pillows were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this hotel... More

This is a hotel well past its prime. The drywall is peeling and there was a funky odor in the room. Neighbors were construction workers who were not on their best behavior. Loud and obnoxious. A place to avoid.

Nice clean rooms. Nicely updated. Convenient to shopping, banking and many local restaurants. There is some road noise from route 276 which passes close to the motel. Has a nice outdoor pool. Has a waffle maker, cereal, juice and coffee but nothing else hot. Friendly staff.

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

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
