I had read so many bad reviews about this hotel before we arrived, but my partner and I were traveling across the states on a budget without a car so needed somewhere cheap and central. Econo Lodge was that.
I was paranoid about bed bugs so the first thing I did was check the mattress. Not a single trace of those little blood suckers. The bed was HUGE and super comfortable. The room itself was huge as well, with a nice bathroom and it was very clean. The pool wasn't in operation because it was November.
Yes the hotel is old and a little tired looking but for the price you pay you get a comfortable bed and a clean room. The breakfast wasn't super exciting - pastries, toast, waffles, cereal etc, pretty standard. The service was pretty non-existent, but we didn't want housekeeping to go into our rooms so had the sign on the door to keep them away.
Location wise, it's an easy walk to anywhere in downtown memphis. The bus from the bus station is right outside (we walked, which was about 20 minutes) and the bus to Graceland leaves from just down the road too.
I'd definitely stay here again if I was to return to Memphis.
