On top of that the floor was dirty and there was hair all over the bathroom. The lady working gave me a refund and... More

I stayed at Econo Lodge while working near Alachua the other day. The person who checked us in was friendly and accommodating. My room was a little worn but clean and quiet. I stayed on the backside of the hotel away from 441. The AC worked well and I had a good nights rest.

I read the review, but thought if just run down, no problem. We were tired and just needed a bed. Unfortunately it was during a festival and took the only bed we could find. It appeared to be clean, so changed and fell into bed. The next morning we got up early turned on the lights to find visitors crawling... More

It is a no frills place. It was clean, quiet, and good for a night. Beds were comfortable and plenty of pillows. Sure beats the price of a place in Gainesville, but still not too far away. Not a lot of things nearby, but there is a grocery store, gas, and some fast food nearby. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We travel a lot for work and pleasure and this is our first stay in a Choice Hotel, Econolodge. I must start by saying that the young man at the counter was helpful and courteous. Our room stunk like smoke, mold and body odor and had obviously not been cleaned for the filth on the floors, windows, bedding, bathroom and... More

I was on an impromptu motorcycle trip when caught by a (several) heavy rainstorms. Usually I live by the rule "life is too short for cheap hotels"...but hey..this was an adventure. Econo lodge it was! For 75.00 I got a filthy room, a "continental breakfast" that was laughable- seriously laughable- and had to park my bike in the downpour. This... More
