Econo Lodge
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Marion
Reviewed 26 April 2016

Questionable clientele, loud parties (until 3am), no respect for guests trying to get rest. Beds are uncomfortable, sheets felt like sandpaper, no amenities, one staff member. The hotel was clean but that was the only plus. Families with young children should not stay here. Indoor pool but not filled with water. No food/snacks.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms.

We have stayed at this hotel before and always been happy with what's offered for a very reasonable price. We didn't get in until 9 PM so didn't have a chance to take advantage of any of their amenities. A nice place for the money.

Not a bad hotel for the price. Room was nice and clean. In general the hotel lot could be updated. Location was good. Plenty of places to enjoy a meal, some within walking distance. Front desk lady was nice and friendly.

Cheap motel right off the highway. Clean enough for $55/night double room with 4 people. It's a cheap motel, people, what do you expect? The staff was friendly and efficient. The room was clean. The free breakfast was respectable. If you're looking for a 5-star inn to spend your honeymoon, go somewhere else. If you're looking for a clean, cheap, decent place to sleep at night--jackpot.

The facility is a bit worn, but nothing was falling apart. Everything worked properly. Heater was more than adequate, almost instant hot water with enough water pressure that you could engage in hydraulic mining with it. (OK...I might have exaggerated a bit there.) The bathroom door had some of the veneer missing and the woodwork had some spots that I would have repaired if it was in my home, but I stayed there to sleep at nights...not to take note of worn or damaged items.

The bed was quite comfortable, and the room was quiet as a tomb. Everything was very clean. Plenty of towels in the bathroom, even though they were the typical "motel towels" that were a bit thin.

The staff was very gracious and friendly. They were eager to help me out anytime I had a question. They let me park my Tahoe and trailer full of equipment in front of the entry door just outside of the portico so it was under a bright light and able to be seen from the lobby.
