Everything looked new and clean. The bed was very comfy. We had a coffee maker, hair dryer, fridge and microwave. They seemed to have a full house but didn’t hear any noise at all. The owners were very nice. Would definitely stay again.

Several years ago I stumbled upon this newly updated Econo Lodge. The owner took the time to give me a tour of the renovation progress and explained all of the plans for an overhaul. Now, after my third visit, I can say that this is a consistently clean and well-managed property. If you are traveling on I-81, this is worth the short drive into Roanoke for an overnight stay. Not only will you have a great motel experience, but the downtown Roanoke area is also a charmer with restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique stores. The farmer's market was set-up on Friday morning and I had some good pastries and coffee at a shop called On The Rise. There are two museums for railfans including the well known O. Winston Link photo museum and the nearby Virginia Transportation Museum.

The building is older and not in the most perfect part of town. That said, the rooms on the inside have been refurbished. The paint was new as were the floors. The floors were clean the sheets and bedding were spotless. The bathroom and sink were also spotless, very clean & shiny. Clean white towels and wash rags. Customer service was friendly. No the Econo Lodge does not have all of the amenities of a larger hotel chain, but the price is also 1/2 or less. For a cheap room, I don't feel that this establishment can be beat!

We booked a stay but when we arrived to check in and saw the actual hotel and lobby we just cut our loss and moved on. Pictures are deceiving. Don’ t know who wrote the good reviews but it is not anything like the pics

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our hotel. We apologize for failing to exceed your expectations. We have been operating the hotel since April 2013. Since then, we have replaced 10,000 sq/feet of flat roof, 100% of the sink and bathtub drains and faucets. We have also installed curved shower bar in every bathroom. We have also replaced 100% of the bed base and mattresses. We have also upgraded our Internet infrastructure to ensure a guest would have at least 80% signal anywhere in the hotel including the parking lot. We have also renovated every room with new lights, 40" LED TV with HD channels, new bathroom door and frame and new higher toilets. We have also replaced 100% of the furniture in every room. We have also finished a big masonry project to update the exterior of the hotel. We have painted the exterior of the hotel and finished replacing carpet with hard floor in 100% of the rooms. In addition, we have also finished paving the parking lot In October 2018. We are proud of the improvements we have made to the hotel in a such short time; however, we are not finished yet. I am confident that we will be able to keep improving the overall condition of the rooms to meet expectations from our guest. Again, our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your valuable feedback. Bhavik Patel General Manager

Pros-There is a Sheetz next door. It’s close to the Berglund Center. The room was clean. Cons- the customer service was atrocious. I try not to complain about a free breakfast but this was sad. Generic cereal and off brand honey buns. Not even a banana. The area is sketchy and there is a cemetery next to the hotel. That is your view on the left hand side of the hotel if you are facing the office.
