It was 2 am, we needed a room that would not only accommodate us, but our dog too. Econo Lodge was that place! Friendly customer service, even at 2 am. Plenty of parking for our 15' moving truck. Super comfy beds, lots of amenities: hair dryer, fridge, microwave, Wifi, free breakfast, and HBO. Only reason it's not 5 stars is...

We stopped here for the night on our way to Virginia Beach. The room was clean and comfortable, bed seemed relatively new. Furniture looked to be newer, bathroom was clean but older. Only issue there was I had to tighten the screw on the cold water knob in the tub to get it to work. Probably needs tightened again by...

Stopped in on our way to Myrtle beach. This hotel is in the middle of nowhere! It's right off the highway, which in convenient but nothing else is nearby. The hotel is next door to a trailer park and that's it. Which made for a quiet night. That's one of the only good things. The shower looks to be older...

Very disappointing as the motel needs a total refurbish. Front door to the lobby is out of alignment and scraps the ground. Staff not real friendly. Room had a damp odor. Bathroom not real clean. Breakfast (?) was non existent. Coffee was terrible.

Unexpected, last-minute trip back to my birthplace to assist in family crisis. Didn't spend a lot of time searching properties as I thought I'd only be there a couple of days. This Econo Lodge is WAY, WAY below any other Choice hotel branded properties I've ever utilized. Budget is one thing; cheap is another. Location: Not too bad. Just off...

It is one thing to be a budget hotel, but this place is quite another. Filthy bathroom with urine on the toilet and hair everywhere. I showered with flip flops on. Even if a place is cheap, it should be clean. Never again and I urge anyone to avoid this place. There are plenty of others for a few dollars...

I could smell mildew before I opened the door. The bathroom was filthy and the sink and tub had been painted and were peeling. Door didn't lock or open properly. Doors open out and property is next to a rather sketchy trailer park, I would not have felt safe staying there alone without a handgun. The office was even dank...

The only room available was a smoking room but we took it. We were dropping off our son to AIT at Fort Lee. The room had bugs, smelled so bad of smoke my asthma started to act up. The breakfast was very good. Good if it's a last minute stay

We were looking for a hotel to spend a night in on our way to Florida coming from New Jersey with a good value. Yet, we found it not a clean place to stay in, dirty old bathroom, narrow room, stink odors, very thin harsh lenins. make it your last choice.
