“True economy hotel with a comfortable stay”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The hotel grounds were well kept. The pool area was clean and very pretty. The hotel rooms were modernly decorated and a nice size. We were on the back side facing the pool and despite the pool being full until closing at 11 p.m., our room was very quite and we had no problems in it. The beds were okay, not very comfortable, but not uncomfortable either. The front desk staff were all very nice and professional. Always a friendly hello and a smile. The breakfast left something to be desired. More of a continental breakfast rather then a hot breakfast. No eggs, bacon, sausage. Only cereals, pastries, and a waffle maker. No milk by the time we went down at 8 a.m. The hotel itself needs a little TLC and fresh paint, but overall, quite comfortable stay in great location.

Room Tip: We stayed in 223 facing the pool. No traffic and decent sized.

Stayed 4 nights, and this place was very nice. Everyone who worked there was very nice. The night we checked in it had been raining, and there was a lot of frog's in the back of hotel which made a lot of noise, but after the rain quit we did not hear them anymore. Nice that it is close to outlet mall and other shopping in the area.

I was very surprise at how clean the room was and odor free. Now the bathroom tub did look old but other than that my stay was pleasant. The price was very Nice. I enjoyed the hot every night I stayed. It was only a seven minute drive to the Beautiful Beach which was perfect for the price. I will be back :)

Came to the beach for a honeymoon & found this hotel in Foley. We felt very comfortable at this hotel, & that says a lot from me. I am very weary about hotel rooms & where I stay!The rooms were very clean & smelled great! All of the staff were friendly!Very clean & comfortable bedding!! no bugs in sight!! We actually decided to stay an extra night! So glad we chose the econo lodge for our stay! It is a little distance from the beach, but you can't beat the price & the service you get here! It was worth the drive to the beach staying here!! Keep up the good work econo lodge!!

Best looking Econo lLodge I have ever stayed at. Rooms have contemporary decor with moderately sized flat panel TV. Nice hot breakfast, but we travel too much to eat that way. Nice swimming pool and Hot Tub selections are 2-5-10 or 15 minutes. Many restaurants to choose from. Across the street from Tanger Outlet Stores. Walmart just down the street.

Room Tip: Visit the Train Museum downtown Foley. Pleasantly surprised. Walking trail from museum goes through...

We were able to friends and family discount.this motel during spring break, so I was alittle worried. Pleasantly surprised with redone rooms and good breakfast selections. Pool was very cold, but it was pretty early in the year. Would stay here again!

I've not always expected a whole lot from these genre on chain hotels, but the Econo Lodge Foley is a pleasant exception. Nice check-in and -out service, decent outdoor pool and hot tub plus comfy rooms...clean, odor free with good mattresses. The break-fast offerings included freshly-made biscuits and gravy, waffles, toast, muffins, cereals, juices, coffee, etc. When I locked my key in the room, a very pleasant service man came to the rescue. This was close to a 4.5 to be fair!

Room Tip: We had a non-smoking overlooking the pool and far enough away from busy hwy. 59 to not hear the semi...
