“Welcoming management and staff. Affordable, neat and newly renovated rooms.”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We have,again enjoyed our stay at the London Econo Lodge. We will continue to recommend to family and friends looking for an excellent price for a good rest in a neat room which includes a good breakfast.The management is to be commended for their respectful,friendly, and helpful service to all travellers. ( They have even taken the time to ensure the towels are Made in Canada:) )

Hi Sandy M,

Thank you so much for writing this review, we are thrilled to hear that we made such a lasting impression! Thank you very much for the recommendation as well, it puts a huge smile on our face to see a great review such as yours. We try very hard to treat every guest as if they are visiting our home and treat every guest as a part of our family so I would like to thank you for recognizing this. Like always, you have been a great guest at our hotel and we can't wait until you come back to stay at our hotel again!

P.S.: We made sure that every pillow we ordered to our hotel was Made in Canada. We have the uttermost pride for Canada.

Came to london to visit the casino and attend a yuk yuks show. Found econolodge was just a short distance up the road and found it to be affordable and tidy. The king size bed was very comfortable and the room had everything we needed. I would recommend staying at the econolodge when staying in london and we will be coming back in the future.

Great experience! Booked online last minute and arrived late at night. Arrived at counter and was expected and welcomed! This was a nice touch. Staff was very efficient, helpful and personable. Room was very clean and comfortable, even if it was a little dated. Breakfast was more than adequate. Ample quantities of all selections and good quality of food and drink. Nice bright breakfast room. Unfamiliar with the town, the motel was easy to locate and get into by car. Not picturesque but convenient and close to downtown. Great price and value. Would definitely stay again!

Certainly a budget priced hotel. The fellow at reception was very pleasant. The rate includes breakfast served in a bright room off the lobby. Cereal, waffles, muffins, bread, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea, juice. While the hotel was somewhat clean, it is showing a great deal of wear and tear. Our room had a coffee maker and mini-fridge. The bathroom had a small jetted tub, although not exactly the setting I'd want to use one in. No closet, just a wall-mounted metal hanging bar. The rooms are dark owing to the black-out drapes that you definitely want to keep closed as the views are of parking lots, and if you're "lucky" a view of the backside of the strip club next door. Moderately noisy. Dismal location, although very close to the Western Fairgrounds. There seemed to be lots of students there during our stay - perhaps homecoming week? Not likely to return.

Room Tip: Ask for the side facing the auto repair shop, not the strip club. Upper floors preferred.

Hello AnnaRussell,

I am happy to read that you enjoyed our breakfast. We go out everyday hand picking out fruits from grocery stores and buying fresh bread, etc. to accommodate our guests. I am very sorry to hear that you didn't like the view. We are working on restoring the area we are in right now by writing letters to City Hall to fund more money in updating the look in our downtown area. We can not control the strip club being beside our hotel but we are trying to get this strip club relocated somewhere else.

Yes, not all of our rooms are renovated as of yet but we are in the process on replacing all rooms with new carpets, paint, furniture, etc.

Hopefully you come back to stay at our hotel again so we can show you one of our newly renovated rooms,

Thanks!

Spent a night here after attending a concert at Aeolian Hall. I was warmly welcomed upon check-in, and when I told the clerk my cell phone didn't work in Canada, she made sure I was in a room with a phone. (not all the rooms have phones) The room was comfortable, just the right size, with a clean bathroom and relaxing shower.

The person behind the desk when I returned from the concert even had a great sense of humor, as I received flowers from the performer at the concert. Another reason I liked this place.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a phone. My cut-rate cell phone plan doesn't have network coverage, and lucki...

Hello TravellerfromtheD,

I am really glad you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. We work very hard so each and every guest feels like our hotel is a home away from your home. Unfortunately, a couple of rooms did have faulty phones in the rooms while you stayed at our hotel but we immediately replaced most of the phones so every guest can have the convenience of a phone in their room.

I hope you enjoyed the concert you attended and we hope to see you again soon!
