This is, hands down, the NASTIEST hotel I've EVER seen! The No Smoking sign on the door must merely be a suggestion because it REEKS in here. There are cigarette burns on nearly every surface. I won't even bring my bags inside because I don't want my stuff to stink like smoke. And that's not even close to the worst... More

Dear Valued Customer, I am very sorry for all the above inconveniences. We the staff and managment are investigating the above with the housekeeper who had supposedly cleaned the room. Relavent action will be taken as a consequence of the same. We accomodate several hundreds of guests each week and try our best to keep them happy. We value every... More

In Whiteville, NC you have very few options for lodging. The EconoLodge would never be my first choice. That said, this particular one had 3 major issues that prompted this review. First, the air conditioning. They have wall units which they keep off when guest rooms are empty. This means that when we walked into our rooms, they were 90... More

Dear Sir, We had a room reserved for your stay.The AC was turned on in the room reserved for you. However, you requested to be close to another guest already staying here. Unfortnately we had not turned on the AC in the room that you requested. We are a big property. We turn on AC's for 50% of our rooms... More

A rainstorm was about to occur, so we did not look long for a place to stay. Econo Lodge needs to train its workers on how to clean. If you are a germaphobe, do not stay here. The price was right...low, and we only stayed one night. The free breakfast isn't much so you may wish to eat elsewhere. Now... More

There were some areas in bathroom that showed some rust and worn looking areas. Bed was comfortable enough . Staff was very friendly and helpful . Typical continental breakfast... More

Decided to stay overnight and hit the beach in the morning, so started checking reviews on what was available. As we got closer to the beach the pickings got slimmer and slimmer. We saw the reviews on this place and thought we probably shouldn't even stop, but what the heck, right? Boy, I'm glad we did. First thing we saw... More

Sorry y'all, this place was not great. I will not totally rip it because I grew up in the area and have love for my hometown. The room wreaked of smoke, though this was supposed to be a smoke-free room. The A/C was on, but the room wasn't cool. It eventually did cool things off but not before hissed, rattled,... More

I expected a 3 star hotel for the price but they just need to pay attention to details. Lift to divert water to shower head missing; toilet paper holder broken; rust around bathroom door jam; blow off parking lot and walks; had an HBO guide but no HBO. Television is an old analog type. Bed was comfortable and rooms fairly... More

Outside was covered by butts. I guess no one has a broom or blower. I had a handicapped room and it was pretty clean but others in our group had shabby rooms. Didn't try the breakfast but others liked it. It was fairly inexpensive.

Road trip and stayed 1 night. Room was clean, clean; staff very very friendly and helpful. We loved it and would stay there again. We were very pleased with everything - but mainly how clean the room was. That's very important to us!
