Econo Lodge Calhoun
Ranked #10 of 17 Hotels in Calhoun
Reviewed July 5, 2012

The man who checked us in was snarky with some slightly pushy guests ahead of us which set the mood for a below average experience at this hotel. I stay at Days Inns frequently, including 4 times this month alone and this one was far worse than others. There are too many rooms for the facilities, the location is difficult to access and too close to the 4 lane. The a/c was not able to cool the room adequately. On the plus side, the room was clean and the bathroom was adequate for the purpose. The breakfast was standard for days inn, by which I mean just fine with me. Also the lady who checked us it was pleasant and cheerful. On the whole, I'd choose another hotel if I could but this one would do in a pinch.

Room Tip: Honestly, I'd suggest choosing a room at a different hotel.

Thank you for choosing Days Inn Calhoun. We always welcome comments for our guests. Our Days Inn is located next to I-75 and does have great accessiblity. This summer has been extremely hot in Georgia, we have upgraded over half of our air conditioner units so far this year. We appreciate your comments regarding our staff and strive to always give excellent service.

Well, you get what you deserve when you don't make a reservation for a Friday night.

After getting shut-out at two other places (perhaps fortunately - both were hosting Biker Sons of the Confederacy late on a Friday, this Days Inn was on the first exit we came upon after getting back on the Interstate. Location is great for a stopover but not much else. Nothing attractive about the area. Staff was Southern-cordial and got us a "good rate" and the promised "quiet-est" room (although the public housing project next door gave us just a bit of a turn as did the impromptu outdoor lounge set up next to the stairs with room chairs, towels, drinks and ashtrays). Room was adequate/minus. More than a little spiffing up is called for when parts of the carpeting and trim are falling apart! But the bathroom was serviceable and clean as were the beds - no signs of infestations. Usual breakfast bar is included - wholesome and a good value when included in the cost of the room (which was by all accounts about $20 too high)! All in all, I can't recommend it to the point of making reservations but it served out purpose and we got out alive!

Thank you for choosing Days Inn for your travel. Our Days Inn Calhoun is located in a business area off of I-75 around restaurant and shopping. Th comments regarding residental housing seem to apply to another location. Thank you staying with Days Inn.

Horrible smell and dirty. Smelled like urine and whip cream, disgusting! Needed to get sleep after driving all day from Miami so we stayed. The worst part was the beds, all the people in one bed were itching all night, and had bites on them the next day! Everybody slept with their clothes on because this place was so nasty. Oh and the breakfast... Coffee and frozen doughnuts. Do not stay here, sleep in your car instead!

I needed a room for just one night which would accept pets and the friendly lady at the front desk beat the price on Expedia and only charged me $5 for my Yorkie. The check in was easy, king room was nice with frige and microwave and bed was comfy. Stayed on ground floor around back which made walking Artie easy. I was worried by the bad reviews but took the chance- not luxury but a great one night bargain stay. :)

We booked this hotel for one night while traveling to another destination. After reading the reviews, we decided that the negatives listed by others wouldn't be a problem for a weeknight in late fall. We experienced an entirely different type of problem!

We had reservations and arrived at 3:30 in the afternoon. Check-in was easy and we were given a key to our room. We walked into our room and found it freezing cold. We turned the heat on full and left for ninety minutes. When we returned our room was still cold so we went to dinner to kill another hour plus. The room was still cold when we returned. We went to the office and asked if we could have a warm room and were told that all the rooms were cold and that the heaters weren't strong enough to handle the December temperatures. We asked for extra blankets and were told that our blankets were on our bed and we couldn't have anymore. Sometime around 3:00 am the room warmed enough and we were able to turn the heat off full blast.

We spent one night here on our way back from Florida and it was the absolute worst experience ever. This place is not, repeat NOT a place to stop with the family. It was fairly clean, but that was its only redeeming quality. There is a lounge on the premises and it attracts the worst of the locals. Our room faced the pool which was already closed for the night (9:00 on a weekend? Really?) and a gazebo. There was a couple in the gazebo that apparently sepnt all of their money getting drunk in the lounge and couldn't afford a room. In the span of time that it took me to get all of our luggage out of the car, they went from simply making out to behavior that I should have called 911 about (Yes THAT). There also appeared to be prostitution going on. I didn't get a chance to experience or review their "continental breakfast" because we were up at dawn and out of there. Find a better place than this.
