“Pleasant surpise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Reading some of the reviews, we were prepared for the worst. However, we needed to book in Norwalk during a busy week there, and the price was almost half of the other hotels in the area. But we were quite pleasantly surprised: The room was large with two very comfortable, clean king size beds (good for a family of four). They provided a refrigerator and microwave as we requested, even though they were not advertised as usual furnishings. Although the motel is close to a busy street, we were not disturbed by road noise. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Best of all, the family that operates the motel was quite friendly, and polite to us; and we observed similar treatment even with difficult customers. Not fancy, but definitely recommended for value at a reasonable price.

i have stayed here few time. stuff is not friendy at all. no coffee or tea other than breakfast time. the motel can do so much more but the management lacks the abilities. not close to the highyway, not an easy access for someone new in the area.over all a below average hotel but there are very few option available in that area at his price.

Yuck is all I can say about this hotel. The sheets weren't clean. The room was dirty. Dim lighting (I guess to hide the grime.) The tub was stained. I will never stay in an Econo Lodge again.
The only advantage was that our room was room level so that our car was parked right outside. It was also on the main drag so convenient to lots of restaurants. But the good features did not out weigh the bad for us.

Room Tip: If you are checking in, ask to see your room first.

I wish I checked this site before staying. Many reviews here state about bed bug problem. We checked in and by morning we all had bites all over. Went to doctor and had to trash all clothes and vacuum car well or home will get infested. Don't stay at this known dump!!

Only hotel I found that reservations & would take a dog in CT. Had only 1 king bed and sleeper sofa room. The lamps were dusty & behind furiture. Sofa wbed in it not very
comfortable. Shower faucet needed & good scrubbing & toilet a new seat that fit. Sheet were ok quality. Pillows flattened but we brought our own anyway. Carpets & floor needed a good cleaning. My dog was even dirty from them & sticky. Staff was very friendly & had good coffee. Free breakfast was decent. Has lovely neighbors in the rooms next & above us. It wasnt the best place I've ever stayed but it was a place to sleep & had electricity through the storm. Was def. ok for the price. Did not see any evidence of bugs in my room.

Room Tip: stay on first floor. no elevator.

My 88 year-old mother was displaced by the recent Hurricane Sandy. She ended up staying at the Norwalk Econolodge for 6 nights until her power returned. The friendly staff was very helpful in arranging a room for her with a senior discount. She was very comfortable and the heater worked great. The beds were clean and mattresses appeared new.. Microwave and fridge helped her eat economically. It was a quiet and clean motel filled with contractors and others without power at home. She states the continental breakfast waffles and OJ were great. Also NO bugs whatsoever and the room was cleaned everyday. Thanks to both Nirali and Vipal and everyone else there for their outstanding service.

Room Tip: They offer "smoking" and "non-smoking" rooms. Be sure to ask.

In town for 5 nights, needed a pet friendly hotel with an affordable rate. This met our needs perfectly. Clean and comfortable. Quiet. NO bugs! Makes me think negative postings are from competitors. Sofa and comfy easy chair were nice additions to standartd hotel furnishings. Friendly, accommodating staff. We would stay there again!
