“Suitable for an overnight pass through.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

The motel gets high ratings for service - we were very happy with the friendly and helpful nature if the man who checked us in. Our room was very clean too. The pool was still closed for the season so I can't speak to that.

Easy to find when passing through but not terribly convenient to find restaurants by foot. When spending 7-8 hours on a motorcycle, one doesn't necessarily want to get back on to go find some dinner after you've cleaned up for the day.

The "deluxe" continental breakfast is very basic and as a Celiac sufferer (I can't eat any form of wheat, barley or rye), there was NOTHING i could eat - I couldn't even find a piece of fruit or yogurt on offering. So we had to go find breakfast which wasn't factored into our morning plans. And finding breakfast in this town at 7 am that is not a fast food joint is pretty well impossible.

Was expecting Martinsville hotels to be as low as 45 a night. Martinsville is an economically depressed area. The only one that was that inexpensive had terrible reviews. So we stayed at Econolodge. It was over $70 but we had no problems, the place was clean and convenient and the service was great!

I booked the Econolodge for a soccer tournament for 22 families. I'll admit, it wasn't our first choice. I'll also admit, we will definitely go back if we travel to the same tournament. Linda and Bobby took such good care of our team. They accomodated allergy requests, had rooms ready early and allowed a little later check out for those that needed it. They really worked with our group to provide an excellent experience for 70 plus people. The best part of our experience was their allowance of our teams to use the conference room for a dinner/dance party for 50 kids under 10 years old. They have tables, table cloths, chairs, etc. ready.

The rooms had double beds instead of queens but we thought this worked perfectly for those with kids because it gave more floor space. The rooms did not feel cramped or crowded. We had a fridge in our room which was really nice for the snacks. The bath is a bit small but totally usable. There isn't much they can do about that since the hotel is a little older than others. We didn't get to use the pool since it was November but the grounds were fun for the kids to run around on. They offer a breakfast that has everything you need. Sausage gravy, biscuits, cereal, juices, bagels.

I'd say this is a perfect hotels for the price. If you want fancy, keep looking. If you want clean, good value (especially with the breakfast!) and good service, you should stay here.

Room Tip: If you want to use the pool (it was closed for the season when we were there), you should make sure...

Visited for a single night stay in order to visit the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Room was clean, spacious, functional, and very decently priced. Mistakenly left my smart phone in the room after departing for about 8 hours. Cleaning staff turned the phone in and the manager had it available to me in a minute upon my return. Would gladly return.
