“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was the first nights stay in a week long vacation. The hotel was nice. It was clean. The staff was nice. They even have a contest for people that write reviews on tripadvisor. It is a less than 5 minute drive into downtown Freeport. At $72.00 the night we stayed there I think it was a great deal.

In the Freeport area over the weekend and I must say our family had a nice stay. A nice continental breakfast was offered and the staff was most friendly and helpful. Would stay again for sure if we were in the area. In is not far from LL Bean, and was very clean, neat, and roomy.

I rated this hotel 4 stars only due to wireless issues.

The room rate was the most reasonable in the area with a AAA discount. The room was clean and the bed was a very comfortable king size bed. Everything worked well except for the wireless. We had multiple wireless devices which would connect to the Econolodge system, however, trying to access any web page produced a "page not found error". This wasn't a big deal for us since our devices could use the cellular network for data access, but it would of been nice if the hotel wireless functioned as it should. We will come back again as long as this hotel maintains its reasonable rates as it has done over the past several years.

Thank you for giving us 4 out of 5 on your recent review! We had major technical problems with our wireless, and had to have one of the access points replaced. So the Wi-Fi issues are resolved, which is great, since this is a vital amenity in a hotel nowadays. Thank you for complimenting the hotel's cleanliness. We are glad that you were satisfied with how comfortable the bed was as well! The front desk as well as the wireless company would have been happy to try to help you with the wireless if it was something that could be resolved. It is good to hear that you viewed the rates to be reasonable! Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope to see you again in the future!

This is not a new place, but it is in the process of being remodeled. The bath tub and controls are new, and there seems to be a new sink and faucet. At the time of our stay the finishing around the tub was not done so it was unsightly – I am willing to think this will be taken care of. They did not replace the toilet – they would not be able to open the door if they did.

This is a clean facility it shows that someone cares. The breakfast was okay, but not memorable the woman taking care of it did a great job with what she had. The breakfast room was like a breakfast room only much smaller.

Room Tip: No elevator - choose the floor.

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you noticed some of the renovations. We replaced the bathtub units in 5 rooms, which were in much need of repair. At the time you stayed, as you indicated, the finishing had not been completed around the tub, but since has been. Thank you for your compliments about the cleanliness of the property and that fact that you were able to tell that someone cares! What a great compliment! Thank you for your appreciation of our breakfast attendant as well, and we would love to have suggestions about what else to offer to make it more memorable. Thanks again, and we hope that you will stay with us in the future!

Stayed here two nights during a three day get away. Staff was friendly and helpful. We found the bed comfortable and noise level was reasonable, My only complaint would be the room was in need of a renovation. The furniture looked like it was from a yard sale. The bureau had draws that were tilted and the top was covered by a piece of wood that looked like someone had tried to glue it. The rest of the furniture was really old looking. The bathroom fan was extremely noisy when it turned but that was not often. Now in all fairness the couple that traveled with us has a room that was much nicer so maybe it was an exception rather than the rule. Also on check out desk staff said they would have someone look at the fan. Aside from everything I would say its a good value for the money

We appreciate that you took the time to write us a review about your recent experience. Thank you for the compliments about the staff being helpful and the bed being comfortable. We are working to renovate some of our rooms, as the other couple you traveled with must have noticed. The furniture will be our next purchase, so thank you for indicating this. We are sorry if it took away from your stay but we will work to improve. We are glad that you thought your stay was a good value. Hopefully, we will have some more renovated rooms by next year and updated furniture. We hope that you will stay with us again if you are in Freeport in the future. Thanks again for the review.

Stayed here for one night. I was very impressed, the room was a very good size compared to other Econo Lodge's I've stayed at before. The front desk was friendly and helpful (even let us check in early), and the free breakfast in the morning was the cherry on top! Close to grocery store, gas station, and a short drive to shopping.

Highly recommend if looking for an affordable, comfortable stay!!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are great for drive-up parking. (Especially if you're in Freeport to shop!)
