“Maybe we got lucky!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This motel was convenient to us, as we crossed the James River Bridge after 9pm and wanted to rest for the night before continuing our trip to Portsmouth the next morning. Check-in was pleasant, friendly young lady anxious to please, put us in ground floor, close to entrance as requested.

Room was clean, fresh, the usual toiletries and better-than-usual bath towels. Only complaint I have is, NO HAIR DRYER in the room. Next morning, I asked the morning lady at the front desk about borrowing one for my wife, she rolled her eyes back, blurted out, "That'll be a $5 deposit." I travel on a credit card so all the cash I had was $2 bills that I keep for tips. I offered this woman three $2 bills to hold as deposit, and she refused - said $5 - nothing else. How do you reason with a belligerent woman who cannot figure simple math? My wife left without a bath.

Continental breakfast was minimal as any I have seen, even for Econo Lodge.

I will probably try somewhere else next time. I like to keep my wife satisfied.

NickP739, General Manager at Econo Lodge Inn & Suites Carrollton Smithfield, responded to this review, May 15, 2013
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the hair dryer incident. The Econo Lodge is now under new management and ownership. We agree with your troubles and removed the deposit and plan to have them in each room. Since your stay with us we have gone under drastic remodeling inside and out. We have repaired, textured, and repainted all of our rooms and corridors with accent walls, replaced our bathroom vinyl with ceramic tiles, new towel shelves, replaced the old vanities and sinks with new white tiger granite vanities, replaced the old carpet and rubber molding with wooden crown molding, removed all of the old landscaping and replaced it with new bushes and flowers with palm trees and mulch, and lastly we are changing our exterior vinyl siding to stucco w/stone veneer. We plan to replace our mattresses, carpet and furniture later this summer. We are trying our best to surpass all of our guest's expectations by offering great service and a comfortable stay at an affordable price. Please do visit us again to give us another chance and you may contact me directly for a personal tour and a 100% satisfaction guarantee during your next visit.

Nick Patel, GM
