“Economy Inn - not bad and the right price”
Reviewed October 3, 2008

It was my first visit to the Economy Inn, and I found it to be a surprise. After reading the reviews here, I expected worse, but I'd put it right up there with inexpensive motel chains, like Motel 6, EconoLodge, and Vagabond Inn.

A bit of a drive to find it, because it is not on any main road, but the country setting may be to your liking. The desk person was kind and interesting to talk to. The room with queen-size bed was average size but clean, well-painted, and with niceties like granite countertops, tiled bathroom floors, double-paned windows, a microwave oven, a large mini-fridge, and an available washing machine and dryer. A few spots on the carpet and noise from the nearby truck operations; however, those truck noises ceased after midnight. There were no dressers or closets in which to store clothes and other items. One painting on the wall was the sole decoration. Overall, I'd rate Economy Inn tied with Motel 6, with EconoLodge at the top and Vagabond Inn at the bottom of the inexpensive motel chains.

  • Liked — the conveniences like microwave oven and mini-fridge and of course, the good price
  • Disliked — the noises coming from the nearby truck farm

Overall satisfaction - Very low
I stayed at this hotel while attending the Gilroy Garlic Festival. The room was clean, but other than that, it was very unsatisfactory. The air conditioning didn't work very well at all. It looked like someone had taken a baseball bat to it. The towels in the bathroom were very thin, and extremely small. The sheet on the bottom mattress was a flat sheet, not fitted, and it came off during the night.
There weren't nearly all the ammenities that are listed for it. No iron, or ironing board.
I would not recommend this hotel.

  • Liked — Can't think of anything
  • Disliked — The air conditioner didn't work.

I needed a hotel for one night before the Gilroy Garlic Festival, and needless to say EVERYTHING was sold out for miles around Gilroy... except Economy Inn.

The hotel itself has a very "Bates Motel"ish vibe when you drive up, and there were tons of work trucks in the parking lot that tended to take up all the available parking spots either because they were parked in them, or because their trucks were so big they blocked other available spots.

Upon check-in, we were greeted by an Indian gentleman who was nice enough, but who could barely speak English. It took about 15 minutes to get through the check-in process, and the first 5 minutes of it was trying to get him to understand that I already had a reservation booked, and wasn't looking for an open room... He gave us 2 gel candles at the end of our check-in experience, which was very nice of him, but a little strange overall. Note: Not small cute gel candles... big glass ones with flowers inside them... Gel + Airplanes? Not so much!

So the experience really didn't get better from there. The room was a Non-Smoking room, but there was a definite cigarette smoke odor to the room that was terrible (Gel candles to cover up the smell, maybe?) and the carpet was disgusting. The shower curtain was mildewed and stained, with sticky brown stuff on the inside of the curtain. There was also short and curly hairs left on the toilet seat.

I'm not kidding about this - we actually went to Rite Aid and purchased Lysol and Air Freshener, and contemplated sleeping in the car. We didn't shower or take our shoes off in the room.

The plus side - the bed sheets seemed to be the cleanest thing in the room, and there was a microwave and mini fridge. Also, close driving distance to lots of restaurants and shopping. Important, because you won't want to be in your room any more than absolutely necessary!

I'm not a picky high-maintenance person, and this was even more than I could handle.
