We decided to stay here because it was cheap. I read reviews and felt comfortable that it would be a good place to stop for just one night. We were traveling back from Florida and didn't arrive until about 10pm and we checked out the following morning.
First, let me start with the positives: 1.) location was perfect. It was right over the Georgia border and very easy to locate at night. 2.) The check-in process was easy enough but I was told that I had paid too much money because I booked through Travelocity - paid $60 when he said that if I had called hotel directly, I would have paid $49. Not sure if that is true or not but honestly, even if I had only paid $49 I still don't think I would have felt like I got my money's worth.
Now with the negatives: 1.) This place was dirty. Dirty is really not the correct word for this place - FILTHY is more like it. The curtains had holes and as the morning sun came through the holes, you just couldn't help but wonder what little creature had made its lunch out of those gross curtains. 2.) The bathroom was nasty - the floor and the shower had "growth". 3.) The walls are paper-thin. We could hear the party going on outside as well as the neighbors slamming the doors. 4.) We lost power when we ran two hairdryers, a light, and the television all at the same time! And of course, no one answered the phone at the front desk and I had to get dressed and run down and personally ask for someone to get the power turned back on. I must say though that the young man at the front desk did get it taken care of within 5 minutes so that was very much appreciated.
Overall, I was just really disappointed. I did not have too high of expectations of the Econolodge but I did expect to find a place clean enough for my two kids to get a nice night's sleep on our way home from Florida and this is absolutely not what I found.
