"One night stay in a wheelchair accessible hotel room."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Check in was three PM but I got there around 3:40 and still had to wait another 20 minutes since my room was being cleaned. It was also 100 degrees in Sacramento that afternoon as I waited in the shade to get in my room. Once getting in, I saw right away how tight it was going to be for me to maneuver around in my motorized wheelchair. The table was way too large to be in such a small room. I had to push it back towards the wall to access the air condition unit controls. That side of the queen bed was completely useless. To get into the bathroom, it was a very tight turn between one corner at the foot of the bed and entry to the bathroom. The bathroom was kind of dark and dank until I utrned on the lights (3 of them available). Grab bars by the ADA toilet and I was surprised to see a seat provided in the roll in shower, where grab bars were also available. Unfortunately, the seat in the shower was not well cleaned. I could see crusty_______ (fill in the blank) at the seams of the seat. I'm happy to provide pictures of it and the room, upon request. Leaving the bathroom and tight turn, the push handle on the back of my chair clipped the large and long mirror attached on two hooks to the wall. The mirror fell down but didn't break. I couldn't put it back up and didn't need to so I left it propped back against the wall and out of the way. There were enough mirrors in the bathroom to suit my needs. There were three handicap wheelchair parking spots with cross hatches for lift/ramp access in the parking lot. I parked at one closest to my room (#108), against the building which the office was located. After getting settled in my room, I had to go back into my van to get more items and found a red car was parked on the crosshatches for a lift/ramp from a van. I could not get into my van. I went to the office to say a red car was parked where it wasn't supposed to be and the manager said it was hers! I was quite shocked and surprised that she did that knowing I was there. She kind of brushed me off saying she just need to park outside of the sun and would move her car. When I again said I couldn't believe she did that, she said, "I'm going to move it, don't worry." Needless to say, it didn't say much about Econo Lodge and they're respect for those with mobility issues. The price of the room was reasonable, the location great but the room itself wasn't the most wheelchair accessible. The most accessible thing about it was the bathroom and roll in shower. I would recommend a stay at the lodge only as a last resort.
