I literally stayed inside my room every day, I barely came out for ice! The manager seemed to always do unnecessary things like tell me I can’t make my own bed an my key needs to be unlocked every day an telling me her personal life stories an asking me about my personal life (basically invading)! It seemed like a mom at a daughter she is living threw!, party as the staff! I never had lots of visitors! Same two visitors an one was my foster dad just just bringing in my food to the door! He came in maybe one time to fix my computer! It was weed smoke an cigarettes threw the entire place! I literally stayed in my room an recorded myself anytime I came out because I felt harassed! I had alot of luggage so I just figured I stay in the room an don’t say or do anything wrong! But yet still I was harassed an I spent over a thousand dollars stayin closed off! I cant blam the race card! It was many times she mentioned my weight! Thing is some people can be recovering from cancer or any health problems that are personal! So before u be mean to someone because of their appearance(don’t judge a book by the cover)! Because you can hurt someone that already has had enough! I highly recommend if u need just a couple days of rest that u do not stay here!

On the second night of my stay, I was woken up by someone trying to get in my room. They had the door open and the security chain was the only thing keeping them out. Half asleep I jumped up and slammed the door; I could hear the couple on the other side was just as surprised as I was. A few minutes later the phone rang, it was the manager demanding to know who I was. He informed me that I wasn't supposed to be in that room. Not sure what to say, I told him that was the room I was assigned at check in, to which he replied that someone had put me in the wrong room and he was just letting me know that was the reason for what just happened. I wouldn't trust this place again. I couldn't believe their system let them check someone else into the same room, even more unbelievable they never even apologized. Also, they have signs everywhere that masks are required in the building. Neither the employee who checked me in nor the manager were wearing one.

I had secured a reservation here a month or so prior through Choice Hotels, the parent company of Econo Lodge. The night of check in I'm told at the desk there's no reservation under my name, and armed with the reservation number I'm told it doesn't exist in their system. They have no rooms - they are completely booked. With two other couple trying to check in, I decide to call Choice Hotels to see what can be done. They show my reservation in their system and assure me they will push my reservation to their system. "For the inconvenience", they offer to transfer me to someone who'll offer me something. I ask if it's some purchase offer, but I'm reassured it isn't. Of course it is - another person processed to try to sell me some trip. I tell her I'm just trying to get my current room and I really don't want to do this right now. She apologies and continues her sales pitch. This goes back and forth a few times - me saying I'm not interested and her apologizing and continuing the sales pitch anyway. I finally give up and hang up on her. Meanwhile, the other two couples have attempted to check in. The first one had checked in and came back to the desk because someone was already in their room. The second couple's room is deadbolted from the inside (someone probably already staying in their as well). I finally get to ask if my reservation has come through and it hadn't. No real surprise there. I ended up going next door to a motel with plenty of rooms and get one without issue. After getting settled in, I call back Choice Hotels to make sure they don't charge me. I'm told that it's after the deadline to cancel the reservation. I told her I wouldn't have minded taking the reservation but they literally had no rooms to give me. She can't help, so I ask her to transfer to someone who can. I get transferred back to the front desk of the Econo Lodge that didn't have my reservation the first place. He offers to call Choice and make sure I'm not charged. The front desk guy is a pro, and dealing with an obviously bad situation for several people that night. No issue with him. But as for Choice and Econo Lodge itself, I think I'll be taking a break. Annoying enough not to get a room, but then try to sell me something on top of the issue is pretty insulting. And they to say I'm going to be charged anyway was just the icing. In the end I wasn't charged, but the experience has left me with a terrible taste.
