“Rooms have not even the basics”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

I checked in yesterday for 3 nights, I am leaving today after my first night, bathroom was not clean enough, the water was not running properly while taking a shower it was like taking a bath because the water was reaching the ankles; the lighting was loose, some body's short (clothing) was in the bathroom, there is not even a coffee maker or a iron board in the room, I woke up with allergies, breakfast is coffee, muffin and slice bread, not even a space designated for breakfast, exterior looks very old, air condition panel has a whole, I called to customer service and I was told all the bathrooms are like that, I had to go and get the iron board myself, small iron board.

Charlottesville, Virginia is a great place to visit. Lots of history, sites and the like. The Econo Lodge is average. Nothing plush. What one expects to find in an Econo Lodge.

Me and my partner stayed in econo lodge for a night, and i was really impressed by the cleanliness and amenities. I had stayed in econo lodges in other cities before, and i found this particular location's econo lodge better of the lot. Sheets and towels were very clean, and they had all essentials amenities. I could not try their breakfast, car parking lot was almost full, and i would definitely recommend this hotel.

A dump -- stay away!!

front desk unhelpful and unpleasant; they also often don't answer the phone.
bedding was stained, carpet wasn't clean.
rooms and baths are old with bad furnishings and in desperate need of renovation.
rates are very high for what you get.

Stayed in room 218 in mid-October. BED BUGS! Didn't know what it was when I awoke in the middle of the night. Saw a single spot of blood on the sheet. Then discovered bugs when I moved the pillow. When I smashed them with the small tablet of paper that I found next to the bed they burst. More blood! I left after a quick shower at 3:30 in the morning. Disgusting and beyond belief they are still open.

1. The tub was dirty. Room not regularly cleaned. Lots of dust on the heating controls.

2. The floors creak so very noisy when the people above you walk.

3. Plumbing noisy so you are awakened when those in rooms near you get up.

4. Sheets on the double beds are twin flat sheets so the bottom sheet comes off. I grew up w/o fitted sheets and know that a standard full flat sheet can be put on as the bottom sheet and will stay. Can't do so with a twin sheet.

5. Stayed for two nights. Absolutely no room service.

We walked into the location. The night manager seemed a bit odd. He quoted us the price of $79.00 which for an area that has $100+ . We were willing to tolerate a bit less of a place. If we hadn't felt they were liars about the cable/TV issues, I'd rate the place a 3.

But, needless to say the knock on our door at 10:52 p.m. to check-out the TV/Cable issue and lies that followed about cable being out in the whole area- NO TV...Amazing all the other hotels had no problems...And a General Manager with an attitude, the whole story is too lengthy to review. BUT...if you have problems here don't expect them to be resolved. ECONO LODGE needs to ditch the management. It's a plausible money maker!!

Safety issues seemed ok to us on the Saturday night.
