This is a drug hotel. No safety or security. Staff walks past crimes on a daily basis, including assaults. They kicked me out for saving a woman's life because I yelled at them for doing nothing but walking past.

This was the WORST hotel I have ever been to, we stayed all of 5 minutes while on the phone getting a different hotel. First of all, it is no longer a Quality Inn, it is now an Econo Lodge (with a temporary banner for a sign). The hotel should be condemned, but instead, they still are running under a...

I don't mind modest accomodations. However, the manager of this hotel is terrible. I'm glad to see in the other reviews that I am not the only person that feels this way. I don't think these folks have any concept of what the hospitality industry is. If these folks were even slightly cordial or courteous, I would not be writing...

I overnighted at Econo Lodge, 1015 Broad Street, Portsmith, VA 23707, Saturday, May 24, 2008. The hotel manager was Marsha A. Lewis, who I found admirable. My check in was handled in a very professional manner, and all my questions were answered. I had an affair to attend at another local hotel and she was able to direct me to...
