The only problem I had was that the room was not ready when I arrived (late afternoon) and had received my room key. I think more than one employee did not show up that day and the others were working as hard as they could to get every room ready. The room was comfortable, equipped well (frig and micro, coffee...

Family group stayed here for one night enroute to another location. The view is wonderful. We did not try the pool. You could hear quite a bit of road noise. Breakfast is carb heavy and not much. They do have a waffle maker and coffee. My complaint was a group of noisy men that stood outside the room and talked,... More

Staying at the Waynesville Econo Lodge felt very organic, as if I was at home. The staff and owners were very, very kind, accommodating and welcoming. Every morning on the balcony with a fresh cup of coffee, watching the sun rise over the mountains was a daily blessing. En route to the breakfast nook to nosh on the continental breakfast,... More

We chose this place because we were hiking with our dogs on the parkway and was listed as pet friendly. Unfortunately this hotel is not a place we would stay again. The TV had a glitch and they could not change it. There were ashes on the patio and it was supposed to be a non smoking room and the... More

What a wonderful surprise in an economy motel. All the rooms have a view of the mountains. Beware of the steep road up to the location. If you are handicapped only book a first or second floor room since there is no elevator for the third floor rooms and you must climb stairs. Thay have a beautiful outdoor pool. Cleanest... More

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
