I was traveling to New York City. This stop was 2 1/5 hrs out from Yankee Stadium. The cost of the room was 68 and they also gave you a 10% coupon for 2 restaurants nearby. They had a cont breakfast in the am with the normal items. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a typical room for that type of hotel. The only downside was the the heat had no thermostat on it, so the heat constantly came out. It is not a bad thing, the room just got too hot for me even on the lowest setting.

Room Tip: If highway traffic noise bothers you, ask for a room away from the highway.

I have stayed here twice. As a business traveler, price, cleanliness and convenience are huge issues these days. The Bloomsburg EconoLodge offers a fair price, a free continental breakfast, a fitness center, and, most importantly, free wi-fi internet access (a feature as critical nowadays as having sheets on the bed). A very convenient location close to a variety of restaurants and shopping, with easy on-off access to the interstate. Staff is very friendly and professional; the rooms, while certainly not the Four Seasons, are comfortable, well-maintained and above average for properties in this price range. I'll be back.

We had to evacuate for the hurricane... As we were in line heard others who had stayed before on why were the prices higher now... They advertise wifi and you have to go to lobby for that not in your room.... Called tech support several times as they suggested but know one seemed to care to help us. Room was very smelly and lots of bugs flying around...
This will never be a $100.00 a might hotel. Very low end....

Room Tip: Go else where...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay.

I am sorry that you did not take the opportunity to move your room closer to our guaranteed wireless hot spot in the lobby as we offered per our conversation. We do not guarantee wireless Internet in our guest rooms though many guests report that they are able to access this in their rooms.

Let me assure you that our award winning property is inspected daily. Conditions as described would be completely unacceptable at our facility. Should an incident like yours be reported at the time of stay, a detailed investigation would take place as well as reasonable and appropriate action taken.

Should you ever return to the area under less stressful conditions, we would like the opportunity to show you how much we care about our guests and our property. Ask for the General Manager when making reservations so that I am able to work with you directly.

Again, thank you for sharing your opinion.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Bloomsburg for a weekend because we were attending a wedding, and we were given a group rate of $89/night. I feel cheated having paid that much to stay in such a dump. I would not pay half of that to stay there again.
The staff were decent. They were not outgoing, but they did their jobs and were never rude. They were not the main issue.
The hotel itself was worn and outdated. It smelled terribly of mold and in certain spots, urine. The public areas were the worst, but thankfully, the room was a bit of an improvement. It was actually clean, but the stench of mold was still present.
Furthermore, the location seemed to be somewhat seedy. It was located next to a rundown mall, and it did not look like an area I would want to be walking around in after dark.
Looking back, I wish I had spent the extra $30 to stay somewhere nicer. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.

Beds and room were not luxurious but were quite acceptable for the price. The staff was friendly and helpful. Free wi-fi, fitness center and a well-stocked breakfast room.
