“Rooms looks nice, HOWEVER, upon closer inspection they are not.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

We needed a place to stay for 1 night during our stay in socal. We arrived about 930pm. Check in was quick and easy. Walking into the room we felt nicely surprised. The room was pretty spacious and furnishings were nice. HOWEVER, while looking for the light switch to 1 of the lights above the dresser we discovered a used condom. Disgusting!!...this probably should have been expected due to the prevalence of prostitutes walking around this neighborhood. Our bed had torn fitted sheet and the comforter had dried white stains on it. On the plus side, the A/C worked really well and the bed was pretty comfy. The micro and fridge were unplugged so we had to pull them out to plug them in. Overall, the rooms served its main purposed...sleep. would not recommend, especially to anyone traveling with children.

To start off, this was both a good and bad hotel. It was not TERRIBLE as others are saying.

Lets start with the good.

-Check is was friendly and quick
-Room was big, big selection of non-smoking rooms
-Breakfast had a selection of Honey nut cheerios, cinnimon toast crunch, and lucky charms, Minute maid juice, coffee, pastries, and bagels. They had butter and milk for us.
-The rooms come with a mini fridge and microwave.
-Big parking lot
-Bed was comfortable
-The walls were thick so we could not hear the cars of the freeway right next to us at all!
-10 minutes from disneyland, while passing a target, Mcdonalds, carls jr, taco bell, and chase ect.
Their high speed wifi was high speed

Negative
-The tv was crap! I only tried to watch it once, the channels didnt work.
- The remote control buttons were broken
- We had a broken table in pieces in our room that they didnt bother to take out.
- The light switches are difficult
-The bathroom lights were very dim
- Getting into the hotel is a mission! There is no left turn, we had to illegal U-turn to avoid driving a mile for a legal one.
- The pool is down even though its 90 degrees
- you only get one room key
- The microwave and fridge are left unplugged for you. We had to pull out both the microwave and the fridge out of its little corner and plug it in ourselves.
-You have to ask for maid service to get it, im not sure if you get charged.
- There is no elevator

Thats all i can think of but overall, if youre just there to sleep and shower its a perfect hotel.

I booked in advance. I picked this locastion because of the price and the fact that the parking was directly in front of the rooms (I was on a motorcycle and wanted easy visual).
Checked in 8/23 and noticed that the pool was covered. Asked the desk clerk if the pool was closed and he said "Yes. Has been for a while." Should have bolted then, but thought I might incur a cancellation fee.

Unloaded my bike and set everything on the bed. Started to unroll all my rolls and put them in the dresser. 3 of the 4 drawers were stuck shut. One night stand had the drawer missing. I know I should have left, but loading my bike back up would have been an ordeal and I had an appointment in about an hour and wouldn't have been able get re-situated.

This place is a dive. It was dirty, run down and poorly lit. The TV was static. The amenities were minimal. I will never stay there again and would be apprehensive to stay in any other Econo Lodge as well.

We booked this place over the internet through Expedia.com.au in Australia for three weeks. It has turned out the most horribleist three weeks of our lives. Sam the host was kind, but in our opinion didn't know how to run the complex, and I'd have to say his wife is the worst person we've ever met, and are investigating the possibility of taking legal action against her for verbal abuse. When we checked in on the 11 June 2010, we were asked if we wanted room service everyday, and because we had been charged for it at $US7.00 plus a day we said yes. Did we get it? We had to go to the office on a regular basis and ask for it which made Sam's wife even more abusive. The drains in the bathroom were blocked and stank and it took Sam two weeks to get around to cleaning them, and they still stank after being unblocked. Everytime we went for breakfast there was nothing there so had to ring the bell to get more food so we could have breakfast. The alarm on the clock only worked the first time we used it. The TV didn't work properly and the carpet was so threadbare there were holes everywhere in it esspecially in the doorway and along the tiled area. The coffee machine was so filthy we didn't dare use it. The Smokers on the top floor stood above our doors smoking and just dropping the butts over the side to land in front of our doors. My son got a chest infection and we believe that it came from his room. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone for any price. In fact recommend the US health department should check it out.

Was here for a convention down the street. Rooms were simple, affordable, and clean. I stayed for 3 nights and experienced a clean room when I returned from my meetings. The area is a typical busy street, however, I did not hear any noise at night. Wi-fi was good too.

I also liked that I was near the Orange Block, which was full of nightlife and much different than the Disney kids traffic at other nearby restaurants.
