We chose the Econolodge because they had a pool and offered a decent military discount. We checked in quickly with no problems. We found our room and it was clean. It did have an odd smell, almost musty...it may have been the a/c. It wasn't bad enough to worry about. We went to the pool which was outside. The water... More

Was in Martin for a couple nights helping daughter pack up her dorm room at UTM. Rooms were very nice. Flat screen TVs, microwave, fridge, hair dryer, and a very nice breakfast with waffles, sausage, biscuits, cereal and much more! Pool was nice and relaxing. Property was equipped with security cameras on the outside of the hotel. Staff was friendly... More

Hello Sir, I would like to thank you deeply for taking the time to leave a review for our hotel. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to get these types of reviews by satisfied as compared to dissatisfied customers.

I stayed at the Econo Lodge over four years ago and since then they have gone through some noticeable changes. Though the rooms were clean before, they are exceptionally clean now and seem to be renovated since my last visit. The parking lot was newly paved and the lobby was clean and tidy. Check in and check out were very... More

A bit more money than i usually pay for this type of motel, but, there's not a lot in the area. Clean Motel, door's face outside to the parking lot. Great biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Super staff. Beds and rooms good to go. Clean no bugs. My second stay here on business.

Martin is a small college town without a lot of bells and whistles. With that said, do not expect a great hotel here. The Hampton Inn down the street may have a steeper price tag but its a much better stay if you need to be in Martin for a few days. The Econo Lodge is fine for a quick... More

Within seconds of walking into my room I saw roaches. Horrible rooms...dark, smelly and extremely dirty!!! Online pictures do not properly represent property. I thought by the rates they were charging it would be ok. Very misleading advertising!!! Left immediately!!!

As soon as I walked into the room, the musty odor hit me. If it hadn't been late, and I hadn't been so tired, I would have asked for another room, or left. But, I endured, even on the hard mattress and awful pillows. Then at the pitiful breakfast, I began looking for the milk. I found it in the... More

This place is a dump! Do not stay here. Rooms dirty. Lights don't work. Pay the extra $$ for somewhere else. Asked them to send us something we forget (we were in a big hurry to leave) haven't seen it yet. Even gave them fed ex account number to send it.

First of all, I read reviews on TripAdvisor. The review by 320paul helped me make my decision to stay here. I was in town for a weekend function at UT Martin. I originally tried to book a room down the street at the Hampton Inn but they were full. I wanted to stay in town so I booked two nights... More
