My wife, daughter and I recently drove up for a weekend USM football game and stayed at the Econo Lodge off of Hwy 49. A very dismal place to stay and an unpleasant experience, I must say. Was about 88 degrees with near 100% humidity outside. When we entered the hotel room, the temperature and humidity were about the same inside and it took the tiny overworked A/C unit over an hour to get the room acceptably cooled down. The bathroom was down right disgusting with mold, mildew and God knows what else kind of filth around the top and bottom of the shower stall. Even saw a couple of bugs - one was a roach and not sure what the other one was. The mattresses were about as hard as sleeping on plywood and I'm still having back spasms. The pillows were extremely thin and hard and I went to the front desk to ask if we could have a couple of extra pillows to get us through the night. The gentleman behind the desk flipantly said that they couldn't do that and that they didn't have any extra pillows to loan out. Judging from the lack of vehicles in the parking lot, I'd say that the hotel was only at about 25 -30% occupancy and if customer satisfaction had been a priority, they could have taken a couple of pillows from one of the empty rooms and loaned them to us for the night. I guess our first clue about the condition of the place should've been the two rednecks hanging over the balcony drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and watching our every move as we unloaded the car. Econo Lodge corporate HQ should make a surprise visit to this one. We won't be back.
