Econo Lodge Inn & Suites at Fort Benning
Ranked #24 of 47 Hotels in Columbus
Reviewed August 18, 2012

My family & I arrived wednesday for my sons Turning Blue & Graduation. We had asked for ground floor because last year I had fallen and broken my ankle in 3 places and shattered the ball in my foot. I had to have surgery twice to repair it... Long story short they had us on 2nd floor and to say me getting up and down those steps wednesday is an understatement. My daughterinlaw went to the office to ask for us to switch rooms to ground floor the man behind the counter wasnt very helpful. So thursday morning when I brought it to the manager and Tamoka the they saved the day, got us a ground floor room and took everything to our new room. I had forgotten some phone chargers pluged in the wall and Tamoka and Valrei both stayed right on it. Helping us and making sure our stay was great!!! Had it not been for the manager, Tamoka, and Valrei there is no way I would have left a great review, but because of them and seeing to it I didnt have to subject myself to the pain of those stairs thursday and friday.... They were amazing and all three deserve my praise and gratitude. I would def go back to this hotel because these three ladies made my stay pleasant soon as I told them my troubles. You cant find great hotel workers like that often.

I travel a lot and this place ranks at the top of the list. I stayed there 07/30/12. It's nice and clean but it's the people who work there that makes it very special. Stephanie is the best. All the others are great too and made me feel right at home. Their hots dogs in the evening and breakfast in the morning was very unexpected but sure was nice.
Five Stars in my book.

The Sleep Inn I normally stay at in Columbus was booked so I thought that I'd try the Econo Lodge since it was close to my destination. I've stayed at EL's before and didn't have unrealistic expectations. The room was clean enough but the AC and fridge both made constant clicking noises. The breakfast offered more than most ECs but I didn't care for my sausages soaking in hot water. 4 selections of juice. All orange. No apple. The biggest problem I had was the Internet connection. If you need to work this would not be a good location. You could probably find better in the area for just a little more money.

My flight arrived extra early and I wasnt able to rent a car so I called and asked if I was able to take a taxi and check-in early (5 hrs to be exact). Tameka was very, very helpful and she told me to leave my son's carseat at the front desk so I wouldnt have to haul it back and forth to the meet the taxi cabs.The only available room at that time was their King bed suite. It was a non smoking room but it smelled a little like smoke, I wasn't mad at the hotel because they can't help it if other people don't obey the rules. So I called the front desk and Tameka got people to help as much as they could with the smell, and it worked. Then the next day, our air condtioner broke! As soon as I called the front desk about it they immediately got us keys to a new room with a working A/C. And it was just down the hall so we the transition was fast and easy. They were very helpful with everything. The whole staff was awesome, the front desk, the cleaners and maintenance guy. I wish I knew everyone's name so I can mention all of them. It's very close to Ft. Benning and Sand Hilll. We came for my husband's family day, and stayed from July 26th to the 29th and we will be returning this month for his turning blue and graduation ceremonies. When I checked out I reserved our return visit with Valeri, and she was helpful as well. This is the best place for the price and the wonderful customer service really makes all the difference.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to do a review on our property. These are some of my favorite reviews to see! People are sometimes skeptical about staying at an Econo Lodge or other Lodging facility because of what the name may imply or because they would prefer something a little more upscale. This review shows that you don’t have to be a large upscale hotel to give your guest a great experience! Things like good, clean, comfy rooms and a little southern hospitality truly go a long way again thank you.

I stayed here to visit my son at Ft. Benning this past weekend. Valery at the front desk was very professional and very pleasant to speak with. She called my room to see how my stay was and if I was comfortable with my room, if I needed anything to call her. I will defiantly stay there again for my son's graduation next month : )

Working out of town, this is the best hotel to stay. Rooms are always clean and the staff is wonderful. I have been very pleased with the hotel and their staff ( especially with Valeri Pollard). I would and have recommended this hotel to others.
