This is the lowest priced motel in the area. It's low price is consistent. If you need a place to stay for the night, this is just fine. I don't understand the reviews praising the hot breakfast. We were taken aback by the whole experience. First, you need a ticket to get your food. You are entitled to two eggs,...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...
