Econo Lodge
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Lexington
Reviewed July 7, 2008

We stayed here on July 5th after we had a vehicle breakdown. We had no choice since we needed a place that allows pets, and Days Inn wouldn't take us even though they advertise that do allow pets. We have a small dog and dog crate by the way.

This was awful. The room was compeletely trashed, carpet filthy and burned everywhere. food splashed on wall by garbage can, Shower moldy and mildew. Our kids refused to shower in this place and breakfast was skipped too. The place looks to be rented out to permanent guests on the west end, and there is trash everywhere outside and around the building. The outside swimming pool is closed and half filled with greenish trash filled water and at has least one good sized fish swimming around in the muck if you're a fisherman. I couldn't make this stuff up. Oh, and there is some serious cooking going on in the building, which created a spicy aroma throughout the entire location. We looked across the parking lot at Holiday Inn Express and seen people with pets leaving the next day. It would have been worth the extra 40 dollars if I knew they took pets.

One positive comment - The sheets were clean and they had a computer available for internet access so I could look for car parts.
