The hotel over all isn't bad but could be better. There's not a pool so I'm not sure why that's being advertised. I also was using the bathroom and the ceiling fell on my head so take from that what you will. Lol

My friends and I decided to stay at this hotel during our weekend trip to hit the Bourbon Trail. I booked a room here because it was so cheap and I completely understand why. The hotel sits back behind a gas station and strip club and there is no shortage of shady guests wondering around. The room we stayed in...

The place was filthy, stunk like rotten socks/cigarettes/vomit, and there seemed to be some "shady residents" close to our room! My daughter booked this trip for us as a Mother's Day getaway - and our room was such a disgrace and disappointment! They had very limited towels, washcloths, etc. The lamps were broken, the curtain rod was broken, the shower...

You stay at Econo Lodge to save money not to enjoy accommodations that cost 40% more. We did save about $40 but cannot rave about the facility. Rule #1 you get what you pay for. I noticed the leather (?) sofa in the lobby was torn but I figured I wasn't meeting a client there so what the heck. Room...

My room had obviously had water damage in the bethroon from the room above it. The repair wasn't even funny. The floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed and the bathroom mirror had serious problems. Doesn't even get one star in my opinion. The free breakfast wasn't anything to write home about. Needs a serious remodeling.

We had to make a trip for a major event in Lexington, the Lexington Comic and Toy Expo and this hotel gave us a grate rate, less then $40 a day. But instead of honoring that price they canceled the reservation by deliberately entering in the wrong expiration date on the credit card that was holding the room. Even though...

We ended up getting into Lexington around 3AM and needed a place to sleep. $40 sounded decent, so we stayed here. This is fine for one evening, nothing more. I wouldn't see myself staying here for more than one night, but hey it was cheap. The free breakfast had next to nothing (brown toast, cereal, danishes). As for the area,...

The only reason this didn't get one star was that the staff were very friendly. It's old and run down. The room was dirty (all except the bathroom, which was actually clean). The sheets were stained - I laid a stadium blanket on top of the sheets so I wouldn't have to lay on them. No hair dryer in the...

Stayed here for 2 weeks. None of my favorite hotels in Lexington were available, so i gave Econo Lodge a shot. It's a decent value, can't complain too much. Room was clean enough. Dark though, it didn't feel as good as usually. Room was noisy.. i could hear my neighbors ermm making love. It's not horrible but i will try...

Room smelled like urine. Desk clerk sprayed, which helped somewhat. Door and bath was filthy. Ceiling showed signs of severe leaking from above and was awful looking. Mildew and mold in the bathroom. They glued the bathmat to the bathtub, and it had mildew and mold on the edges. Noticed a bug on the pillow when turning the bedspread down....
