“Not bad but not as spectacular as some state”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I have read both the good and the bad reviews. In general I would say I found the positive ones overly positive and the negative ones overly negative. I recognized some of both. The hotel rooms are decent by themselves. I found the service reasonably friendly, but the so called free breakfast is laughable. There were just white slices of bread with nothing on it and then there was cornflakes. They also had coffee and juice. The hotel has a very weird entrance and you have to watch out what you are doing. The wifi worked fine. The best feature of this motel is their location, right opposite the Military Circle Mall which offers a lot of food options. There is also a movie theatre right oppositve the motel. All in all it`s about as good (or as bad) as you could expect for a motel in this price category.

This hotel is ok.they could spray more for bugs!!! Shantane is a hotel clerk that works their & her customer service skills are superior to any I have experienced!!! They have more channels than the hotel next to them :) also you can bring pets,that's a good thing.the managers will help no matter what the complaint or problem is they will try to make it right,I like that.they remodeled & the place looks a lot livelier & more colorful.I have been frequenting this hotel for about a year.oh yes the prices are not bad,except when they raise them :( it's pretty quiet around here.

When I walked in office, I thought did I came to right place since it was design as a beach theme. Immediately I thought this place has newly renovated. I got in room and everything was new inside. Especially everything was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean, beds were comfortable too. Staff were nice as well especially Manager name Vick. Price is economical too. I would highly recommend this place for future guest coming to this Econo Lodge. I'm defenetly coming back when I come area.

I enjoyed my stay as well as the price we paid. My husband and I were looking for a nice place to stay while we enroll our daughter in to college. We could have stayed closer to the school... however we wanted to be in a central location such as jumping on the highway to her school, the mall, the navel base... as well as the oceanfront.
The staff was friendly and helpful.

I have read many negative reviews about this particular property , however, after spending a night there it was not like I expected. The staff and service was excellent, the desk clerk was very knowledgable about the area and the hotel. Housekeeping was excellent. I found the room furniture and bedding to be in good taste, and the bathrooms and tub clean . There were no people hanging around even though some of the reviews I have read say that there are savory people hanging around. Over all my stay was excellent and I find that sometime people write negative things about hotels because they have had a negative experience somewhere else. Choice Hotels is world reknown, however, they always never advertise about the Econo Lodge Brand so to find a good Econo Lodge we should not write bad things about them as they are already paying too much for the Choice supposed to be advertising.
