“Terrible mattresses”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

They charge as much as anyone and the room was painted. That's nice. But mattresses were old, cheap and worn. UNCOMFORTABLE. They save a few bucks, and the guests probably won't come through this town again, so the owner doesn't care. BUT Econo Lodge is below Motel 6 in my book if I have a choice in the future.

I stay in cheap motels and expect nothing but a (1) secure room; (2) a shower and toilet (3) a tv and (4) a MATTRESS/BED THAT IS COMFORTABLE. They FAIL.

AVOID ECONO LODGE!

We went to this motel with hope for a remodeled room (we read they were working on it) . Our hope came true, the room (209) looked great and the bathroom was all new. So we had a great night over here. We didnt hear the road.
Breakfast didnt have much choice but there was enough.
It's just a 5 to 10 minute walk down to the beach.
It was conveniently located straight of HWY 1

If all you are looking for is a good, clean, basic room, this is your stop. They have a TV, fridge, clean beds, towels, and sheets. What else do you need? If you want a fancy room to stay couped up in all day, this isn't your place. If you want a clean place to lay your head after hitting the beach, at a price that can't be beat in town (been going to MB for 34 years) this is your spot.
Great staff, nice view of Morro Rock, and best of all NO BUGS! Bed or otherwise. (I work in Pest Control).

We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay here again. The staff was really nice and the room was basic, but great. Nice upgrades to the bathroom, nicely tiled shower area and nice counter area. Lovely tv, good view of Morro Rock from our window. Very clean, good location to the beachfront area (shopping, dinner, coffee). Breakfast isn't anything special, but certainly adequate! Would recommend this to my friends!

We stayed one night at this hotel. It's an older property, but it's kept up. It's not fancy, but if you are looking for a place that is clean and inexpensive this is a good place to stay. We had a nice view of the rock and a decent Continental breakfast. The staff was very friendly. We would stay here again.

Nice place to stay if you are not too picky about your room, overall clean and cozy and very close to the rock and the beach shopping area and an excellent coffee shop Is near by if you keep going south on the main road, it's called top dog best latte I've ever had. Showers could use some work and the breakfast is a huge pass, I went to franks and lolies for breakfast right on the beach. Excellent food and reasonable prices.
Will come back to this hotel.
