Traveling from South Carolina to New Jersey for Thanksgiving, we decided to stay overnight in Virginia Beach and have dinner at our favorite restaurant, Margie and Rays! I am usually a Hilton/Mariott girl but decided to look at some reviews for several more economical hotels. Econo Lodge had great reviews and a great...

Believe me, spending a night in an Econolodge has never been part of my traveling plans but for once, I was very please having changed my mind. I ended there on my way to Florida after reading quite positive Trip Advisor reviews but even though I am a believer, I had my doubts but I was so wrong. First, the...

I didn't expect much from this hotel, but it was a very pleasant stay. We visited at the end of October, so it was the off season. The staff was very friendly. It's an older hotel, but it's clean. The balconies are nice. I believe every room has a balcony or a patio if they are on the ground floor....

I read the reviews before booking this motel. I don't need 5 stars, location is more important to me. The reviews were dead on. Although not the fanciest, it is everything we needed. Ocean front room, great location, great employees. Upon check-in we asked if we could be moved to a 3rd floor room which they did immediately. Front desk...

We always stay at this Econolodge in Virginia Beach.The staff are more than accommodating in every respect.The rooms are clean,quiet and comfortable.The bonus is that it is only a three level unit,so no matter what room you get,you are practically on the beach.Rooms have a firdge,microwave and coffee maker.
