I travel frequently for work. This is by far the worst motel I have ever stayed. Not sure how they are a AAA approved. We stayed 2 nights. The first night we woke up to a room full of ants. They moved us for the second night. Again, we woke up to ants. The rooms were dirty, dried food on the bed and floor, blood spatters on the wall. The WIFI didnt work, as we were too far away from the office. The service was equally as bad. This continental breakfast was minimal, and the milk for the cereal was warm. I will never stay there again. We would have been better off spending our Xmas Eve and Xmas night in our truck.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Well, at first this wasn't such a bad hotel. The price and location made it desirable. We prefer to be able to park in front of our room since we were on a long trip so that was quite nice. The room was just average. There was a coffee pot, hair dryer, microwave and fridge. A nice TV as well. The walls seemed quite thin, we could hear our neighbors coughing through the night. The bed was just okay, with really uncomfortable pillows, and the cleanliness average for this type of hotel. The shower curtain was curved, which is nice for extra space.
The thing that bothered us the most... the ants. We didn't notice them at first, but the following morning when I moved the coffee pot the counter was covered in small ants. Then we noticed them on the walls and coming out of the trim around the bathroom door. There were also potato bugs on the wall. They were NOT near our clothes thankfully, or in the bed but were around the sink and bathroom. Overall, it's an "okay" location.

Room Tip: We were in the middle of the property. Rooms toward the middle or back are probably quieter since t...

This is not the worst EconoLodge I've ever stayed in, but it's not in the top half, either. Thankfully, the inside of the room was a lot better than the exterior of the facility, which is pretty derelict. The bathroom fixtures have been upgraded: the shower was quite good, and the bathroom was very clean. The bed was what I've come to expect at EconoLodge. The room had a coffee maker (but no decaf coffee), mini-fridge, and microwave, and a flat-screen TV. However, the furniture was old, and the door to the room had a gummy mechanism that took some fidgeting to get the door to actually latch. The breakfast choices were a bit better than at the average EconoLodge.

This room was booked on-line and I was concerned about the cleanliness of this motel. It is certainly not a Hilton but was adequate. The bath/shower, shower curtain, toilet and sink were all clean and the shower had decent shower pressure. This motel has updated some of its features. A non-smoking room but could still smell a bit of the old cigarettes. An update of the spread and blanket would be welcome. Also very quiet. We paid about $70 with a AAA discount. The young man who greeted us at the counter was pleasant. All in all it is adequate for a nights stay.

We booked online and got a great price $ per night. The Econo Lodge is on the edge of the city so you have quick access to Jedediah Smith State Park for hiking in the Redwoods and just around the corner from the beaches and restaurants of Crescent City. The room was very room with a microwave and larger than average min-fridge. It was perfect for a place to crash after a fun day.

I booked this room online and was apprehensive on what it would look like in person. The rooms were clean and decent. I was surprised that it was not bad. A little outdated and too much money (120.00 per night). Of course there was 4 people and 2 dogs. We were in walking distants of where people moored their boats. We went down and watched the sea lions.

This hotel is sufficient for a short stay. Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean, staff very friendly, NO stairs which was a plus! Plenty of restaurants along Rt 101 to choose from with a variety of foods. Easy access on ad off Rt 101, etc. I would stay again, if traveling this route.
