This was by far the worst hotel/motel I've ever stayed in! I can't believe Choice allows this! The first room we went to ... the bed was HORRIBLE!It felt like we were sleeping on rocks, and NO SMOKE ALARM! We moved to another room after I complained about the bed and smoke alarm. In the next room, the beds were...

For the money you pay a night to stay here is a bit much. The showers have mild and mildew. The room is very dusty and outdated... I will not be coming back here...to top it off. You can't get a refund after mins...I'm highly piss!

Everything was perfect. My wife planned the trip, lt was a passage, so didn't know what to expect. Couldn't complain about anything, They made it very comfortable and accommodating for my family. Thank you again, for the good service. It means the world to me. We were very tired from our trip and found the hotel to be very comfortable...

On my return trip from Florida, I picked the Econlodge on I475 Exit 3 at Macon Georgia an overnight stay since it was pet friendly. Chiqueta, the receptionist, was a professional who processed my request both efficiently and with great knowledge and attention to my needs. She did not a have room on the first floor but we did have...

I was trying to sleep in what could only be called the world's noisiest rest area, finally around midnight I gave up and looked for a cheap hotel so I cold try to get some sleep. The older gentleman who checked me in seemed to be on task. The room (221 I think was the number) looked somewhat unusual in...

I did do a survey from Econo Lodge, so they are aware. The bath tub and bath room were filthy. My husband would not use the shower even though I had cleaned it and put down a towel. The control button on the temp.control fell off. The floor in the breakfast area was sticky and no fruit.

We stopped here on our way to Florida for one night. It was pet friendly, decently clean, and the clerks were friendly. The breakfast was well stocked with basic bread and cereal choices, including a waffle maker. It was a good price for what we needed - a bed for the night and some sustenance to get us on our...

The rooms are old, but the beds are comfortable. Pet-friendly. They do have a continental breakfast, the waffles that you make yourself are awesome. They have muffins and bagels, but they don't replace them each day, so you'll be lucky to get one. The pool is nice....kept very clean. The couple that does the housekeeping do a great job by...

I can say across the states.... Econolodge's are very predictable. Inexpensive rates (usually depending on city); basic room; nice desk managers.... This one is cut from the same cloth: a bit out dated- but roomy. Comfortable beds ( but not spoiling you). Shower was ok; the knobs were a bit backwards too turn on and get the temp just right....
