As we pulled into the parking lot of EconoLodge, I got creeped out with the area which did not have enough lighting in the parking lot. We booked a one night stay, and thank goodness it was for only one night. We checked in at 11:57 pm, and I asked for a late check-out. The guy at the front desk told me that they only approve a late check-out after 12:00 am. I asked him that it's almost 12:00 am if he could just cut me some slack. I asked him if it's okay to wait then, but he told me that I'm already checked-in and only the supervisor can approve it and there were no supervisor in sight. I was too tired to argue, so I just went ahead to our room. As we opened the door to our room, it had this weird smell. The a/c was so loud and apparently on its last leg. I thought it was going to blow up at any moment. I don't know why we booked a room with EconoLodge again when the very first time we stayed at an EconoLodge somewhere else, we had a bad experience then also. Actually, it was my husband who booked it for my daughter and I as we were driving from Maryland to Florida. He read all the reviews, and said people giving it a really good review. (4.2 out of 5.....really???) Well, I don't know what all the good reviews were about because I didn't see it!. Anyway, it's a lesson learned for me. I was trying to give EconoLodge the benefit of the doubt, but unfortunately, it didn't work for me again for the second time. Bad or good reviews, never again will I stay in any EconoLoge anymore.
