This location far exceeded my expectations. The price was quite reasonable. The staff was friendly and helpful when I needed help with getting some documents printed. The TV (flat screen) image was high quality. The wifi was great. The room was clean with furnishing in well maintained condition. I look forward to staying here again,.

The worst hotel ever! Very expensive for the hotel. The room had a very very very bad smell. I asked for other room it was the same or even worse. I stayed at a Travelodge it was cheaper and it was excellent. This isn't even a one night stay hotel.

We found clean basic lodging, no bells or whistles. We found very comfortable bedding, clean bathroom with ampel needed towels, soap, & shampoo. No radio, but a wake up call came through. No lotions or conditioners. Air conditioning worked well, my only complaint was poor TV reception. Continental basic breakfast was good. I would stay here again.

I stayed here for one night on the way to Hampton Roads for a wedding. This hotel is located in a rural location with no other businesses nearby except for a gas station. My overall impression of the hotel is that the place is in need of renovations. The room was dark and dingy. Bed had lots of moisture on...

Room was dirty, especially the bathroom. The tub had mold around the tiles and tub. Bed linens appeared not to have been cleaned and the pillows were all worn and flat. :Left without staying, needless to say will not book Econolodge again

The room was dirty. Especially the bathroom. The area outside the motel stunk as if a compost pile was nearby. Not pleased and wouldn't recommend. Even the lighting outside of the rooms was dark and dingy. Didn't feel secure.

That place is disgusting. Went with my little family just to sleep a few hours and hit the road and I will never go there again. The bed had hair all over, the floor was dirty and the towels looked used.

This is the second time i have stayed a night at this location. Great clean rooms and super friendly and helpful staff. If you are an adventure seeker like myself then you will absolutely love the scenic back roads that surround this location on the outskirts of beautiful Petersburg virginia. Will definitely be returning once the snow starts to fall...

I need to do this lengthy review because this place is shockingly bad. I have stayed in all types of outdated, cheap and low budget hotels during many times during the many road trips I have taken. They are usually fine for a nights sleep and then I move on. Sadly, this was my first road trip from NY to...
