“Friendly service”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed for 1 night. The entrance was nice, checkin was excellent and fast and the workers were friendly and very nice. The hotel is in need of some fixing up, but room was clean and place was quiet, so got a good rest. The breakfast area is a little small, but it is very reasonably priced and would recommend it to others.

Econolodge in Orillia was the perfect location for a perfect stay. The rooms are clean, and the service is awesome!! Very friendly and nice people. I would recommend Econolodge for anyone who would like to stay up in the cottage area! It's a great hotel!

We stayed 2 nights at the end of June. The entrance is nice, the check in was good. We had 2 rooms for each night. Our room was clean, the bath tub was very clean. There is a number of things who needs to be fixed without costing too much i.e carpet need to be glued, loose toilet seat, toilet paper roll very loose. The breakfast was OK but only starch i.e toast, muffin, donuts etc.. There are of good quality but they should have cereal, milk, some protein would be nice!
There were strange peoples coming and going at different time. The bed were fine but really really old.

I had stayed at the hotel over the past weekend and will be staying over the Canada day long weekend also. Its got new lcd tv's and new air conditioning units that I have noticed and a lot more. The staff are super friendly and given me excellent service over the past few times I've stayed here. Its like a second home when I come up north.

Door keys didn't work for outside door, had to go to inside hallway to get into room. Beds are worn saggy, but comfortable. Rooms are dark & outdated, slightly unpleasant odour, although I think it was what they use for cleaning. Microwave & mini fridge in room, flat screen tv all worked well. Breakfast room is small doesn't offer much, but there's a great place a few doors away reasonable for a full breakfast, & Thoe's across the street is fantastic for lunch or dinner. Burger King is on the other corner. Front desk clerk, I think was named Amanda, was friendly, & helpful. This hotel could use a face lift, but its convenient to where we wanted to be.

Room Tip: Ask them to put heat on if your staying during winter, it takes awhile to get these rooms warmed up.

Weekend of May 25th - one night - Beds were very worn and saggy, door keys/cards wouldn't work from outside so parking the car near the door of the room was pointless. Wondered if bed linen changed as sheets very wrinkled and bed not made well. Breakfast room tiny - not much offered compared to other hotels I have stayed in (have stayed in quite a few due to travel). Back door propped open - security issues. Came to check in and we were early so after signing in we left and came back well after check in time and staff couldn't find out room (booked 8 weeks in advance) but when we alerted her to the early sign in and we were accomodated. I'd pay the extra $20.00 next time to get something better.

My friend and I stayed for one night. The place was filthy. We stayed on the second floor. No elevator. Stairs were disgusting. Looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in weeks. The mattresses were stained. Hard to sleep knowing there might be bugs around. Breakfast room was very tiny. Definitely spend $20 more and get a better hotel.
