Upon arrival, we were very impressed with the appearance of the lobby and room. Both were clean and appeared relatively newly updated. Loved the fact the room flooring was laminate instead of carpet! We were the last to check in and were given the handicap accessible suite, 116. After settling in the room, noticed the back of the bathroom door... More

Management has taken an older, smaller property on US66 and made it into a clean, comfortable place to stay. They spent their money on new bathrooms, new bedding, and non-allergenic wood flooring. All the accessories were there and functional. Breakfast was pretty standard for this class of motel, but was fresh, frequently refreshed and supplemented by fresh fruit. A pleasant... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and couldn't believe the list of issues we came away with. Sure, it was a cheap choice but not in the best location so you shouldn't expect to be getting mega bucks anyway. Firstly the air con is controlled by someone other than the controls in your room.

The motel is in need of updates but very well maintained, except the parking lot that becomes a small lake when it rains hard.

I note that Elena (Owner) regularly responds to reviews on TripAdvisor. This provides some insight into why the Econo Lodge Old Town achieves such high reviews. This is budget lodging but the owner is clearly working to make the stay as positive an experience as she can. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and there was plenty of... More

We arrived, two women over retirement age, at night, in the rain, in a less than fancy part of the city, from Tennessee and Delaware, Travel weary doesn't begin to express it. Reception staff were genuinely helpful. Room was spotless, plain and comfortable - the hardwood floor, unusual in itself, looked clean enough to eat from. Best motel breakfast I've... More

For those on budget and wanting to be close to old town area this is good choice. I only gave it a 3 out of 5 because the breakfast was just ok, pool was cold, and neighborhood seemed a bit sketchy - it's also off busy road so careful when leaving since drivers speed by!
