Looking for budget motel in Fredericksburg and found the Econo Lodge (can't see motel from road, large sign and entrance immediately after Super 8). Motel is older, room clean, a bit of a smell like many motels but nothing to make me leave, comfortable bed, safe area with many food choices. Free breakfast was a pleasant surprise, hot pancakes and/or... More

When I made our reservation at this hotel, I wasn't expecting much since the price was so good, but our stay was ghastly. There was an overpowering stench in the room that was nauseating, and the safety lock on the door was broken. This was especially troubling because guests were being assigned to rooms that were already occupied. In the... More

I checked in, September 2008 and checked out May 2009. I stayed 8 months there due to the staff and the price was excellent. The management set up my room with a computer work station, Coffee maker and other amenities. The room was large and comfortable. The service was great and the office staff was a pleasure to deal with.... More

Driveway is easy to miss but worth finding for a quiet location and everything was as it should be. This is the cleanest we've experienced in this price catagory and even in many above it and that includes our stay here last year! We did have dogs last year and the room was still satisfatory considering that . I joined... More

Stayed at the Econo Lodge Fredericksburg overnight during a trip around Virginia and D.C. Room was clean and service at front desk was great. Area was safe and I had no concerns. Will stay here again if I return to the area.

A little dingy, but appeared that they were trying to keep it clean. Could use some rennovation. Based upon other negative reviews, was pleasantly surprised it was as nice as it was. Okay for the solo business traveler looking just for a night's sleep. Beware charge for safe in room. It will be automatically added, unless you request it removed... More

My father and I decided to stay near Fredericksburg for 3 nights while visiting the States to see the MXON at Budds Creek. We were after some cheap accommodation and were attracted by the price and location. The hotel is a stones throw away from exit 126 of I95 and the staff were efficient at getting us checked in. We...
