You definitely get what you pay for at the EconoLodge. We stayed at the EconoLodge for 5 days in March. It is as it is described, nothing more and nothing less. The EconoLodge is situated behind the Travelodge, so it takes to minute to understand this and find the reception. The breakfast is very basic, if you can even call it breakfast. All they offer is mini muffins and mini cinnabons with orange juice and coffee, and that is if you make it in time. If you go down a bit late, you usually don’t find anything at all. The breakfast area is exceptionally small, not at all adequate enough to accommodate the amount of people at the hotel. And they want you to eat in the breakfast area and not take food out of that area, which is almost impossible if the area is overflowing with people. The room itself is adequate, as advertised. The tv is outdated, but the availability of channel options was adequate. We found the room clean and comfortable, if a bit shabby. There is only one shuttle a day that goes to Magic Kingdom/Universal Studios, and one return shuttle. The return shuttle from Magic Kingdom was only at 11:30pm leaving, which left us standing in the cold for over an hour, as the shuttle arrived late as well. On the positive side, it is centrally situated on International Drive, so it is very close (within walking distance) to many eateries and close to public transport routes, so getting around is very easy. You won’t need a car (although we had one) as the public transport is easily accessible. For a budget hotel, it is just okay. If you can find one for the same price but better ratings, take it!
