“Okay for the price”
Reviewed 23 July 2011

The floors were pretty flithy and the shower wouldn't drain. Also, not sure if there's a swamp nearby of something but the windows were literally covered in what looked like mosquitoes once the sun went down. Going to get ice outside was like entering the Temple of Doom. The chairs were kind of dirty too.

Hey at least the air conditioner worked.

There's a daily charge of $1.50 per day for the room safe (plus 3 different taxes!!) If you don't use it, ask for it to be removed from your bill when you check-out. Otherwise a good modest motel, good location, friendly staff, excellent housekeeping. However the low rates sometimes attract a more "casual" type of traveler. And bus groups. And truckers. Can get a little noisy some nights.

We normally do not stay at this chain but this one proved to be a lot better than the ones that caused us to only consider them as a last choice.

Plus.....
Non Smoking King Room on ground floor is large.
Very convenient location near I 90.
Spotless.
Bathroom had proper vented fan. (unlike some Courtyard Marriotts and Hilton Gardens)
LCD TV. (unlike many expensive hotels)
AC unit was new and quiet.
Free WiFi worked fine.
Fair price.

Minus......
Some noise from upper units.
Some parking spaces are awkward because of outside stairs.
No inside corridors.

We had stayed here when we went to visit niagara falls on july 4 weekend.its 30 miles away from the falls. The service is very good and the staff courteous. There is a free continental breakfast available in the morning. The room we stayed in didnt have a microwave and a fridge but we could manage without them.

wasn't sure what to expect with this Econolodge as the cheap price i got. But we were pleasantly surprised and we would stay there again- no problem.
The room was large with two full /queen beds-dresser-table and chairs and a tv- it had a large closet with lots of room and a safe,
the bathroom was clean and decent size- the water pressure was not great but not a trickle either- a few standard toiletries and soap. We were give clean decent towels and there was also a single cup coffee maker in the bathroom as well.
For the most part it was quiet and we slept fine until 7 am when housekeeping started their rooms- they are not quiet!
Check in and out were fine- and the few snacks out for breakfast were not at all impressive but a coffee and stale danish were available.
this was only about 8 miles to our destination so it worked for us.
There is a spot next door called the warehouse- they had some good food and a nice, fun spot- we got good service and decent food!
i wouldn't hesitate to stay here again- it isn't a the Bellagio -but it was great for the price we paid!

We were staying there for one night since it was our shopping weekend. It's was clean, spacious room, it’s a motel not hotel - but we had what we needed – warm bed, shower, TV. That’s all you need. This Motel is located close to HWY, 10-15 min drive away from shopping malls, restaurants, etc. Great price, not a worse location. I’d stay there again if I’d have to. Nothing is wrong with this place

Arrived nights after a day at Niagra, the Reception was friendly and quick. The room was clean and efficient, not the best, but the Price was good for the quality. Bathroom was clean. Parking direct on building and safe from traffic. Outside area well kept. Breakfast was ok, not the best selection. A small restaurant is next door.
