My first stay in London was at this place. Though I was not that happy when I walked in, the courteous Reception and the room service they offered was second to none. They have renovated the place. So, I was happy to have newer amenities. They do have laundry on site, breakfast service, vending machine for pops and chocs, and...

My family and I visited London for the first time and stayed at the econolodge due to its proximity to the downtown core. We were absolutely blown away by the service. The front staff were extremely friendly and had plenty of suggestions on what to do in London and where to eat. Will definitely stay at hotel again.

Excellent customer service from front desk staff. They were efficient and we were given a room immediately upon arrival. Room was very clean and the free breakfast and wifi were great added bonuses Hotel is very close to Western Fair and other downtown area recreation areas as well as restaurants. Highly recommend this place to other travellers!

Had two more pleasant stays at the London, Ontario Econolodge. On two weeknights outbound was upgraded to the very large two room suite directly above the front desk. Anyone wishing plenty of space, especially a family, should try to reserve this room! It is worth it, especially since the London Econolodge is already a bargain. On the way home, I...

Without doubt one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my time in London, Ontario. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and general manager. The staff are extremely friendly, and offered great suggestions of activities we could engage in. We walked through Victoria park which was a very short drive away (5 minutes) and enjoyed a beautiful...

The lobby looked clean when we went in so thought it would be fine. All other hotels were booked in London so we had no other option but to stay there. I read reviews saying it was shabby and outdated. I didn't care about that, even the old tube TV was fine. But it was filthy. There weren't even mattress...

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were the nicest I've come across anywhere. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. I was only a few minutes drive from downtown London. It is an economy hotel, but it was quiet, clean, and comfortable. What more do you need? The staff were not economy staff though, the people who...

Located next to a strip club in the worst part of town, this place is noisy and unsafe. The rooms were dirty with old stained mattress and boxspring and bathrooms disgusting. Wouldn't have used shower but there was no hot water anyway. Holes in wall, exposed pipes etc.
