Reviewed 12 March 2017

Spent a Friday night here while traveling. Facility was quite old. The room was clean, but the bed was worn out and the room was very dated. Service was good, TV worked and internet was so/so. Location was close to fast food places and the interstate.

I booked the Econo Lodge in Opelika after attending Camp War Eagle with my daughter in June. The price for the hotel is what sold the room, as it was much cheaper than other hotels in the area. Location of the hotel is not off of one of the main Opelika exits with all of the restaurants, so if you are looking for something to eat before you stay...you may want to look elsewhere. Some rooms are interior, ours was exterior (the majority of the rooms are exterior rooms). Overall, this is what I would expect from a 'motel' type of hotel. The air conditioning was in the window, and was either freezing or hotter than a firecracker. You could feel the springs in the bed, which did not make for a restful night. We stayed one night at the hotel, and I can say that we will not be back. My girls were a bit concerned with the outside rooms on the first floor, and the lack of mattress support are primarily what made this decision.

Our experience was not good. When we get into the room you could immediately smell mold and mildew. We went back to the desk, but they were not able to give us another room due to it was a football weekend. We were stuck. In the morning I woke with such an allergic reaction that I could barely get my eyes open. May have only been our room, but we do not plan to stay again at this hotel.
