Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge Inn & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Horror"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The bathroom was totally filthy toilet seat was had black junk on it. Toilet would not flush. No ice and ice machine. Front desk were very unhelpful and seem to have a very bad attitude. All that they seem to be is there too get a paycheck. It is the worst place that I ever stayed in my entire life. There was fighting out in the middle of the hallway on my floor at 2:30 in the morning that lasted until 3:30 4:00 in the morning. I've never been so disappointed in my life.

"Disappointing"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Would like my money back Hotel stunk could have been from a water dripping down into Garbage cans in the foyer. Then are room wasnt cleaned when we checked in @ 5:30 pm Finally got to our room and discovered we had no towels, No Ice Bucket, no Kleenex and room wasnt all that clean. Went to go get Ice and only had one ice machine on 3rd floor and it was broken. Could not sleep doors need to be fixed so they dont slam shut through the night.

"More bang for the bucks."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Got a better than decent rate online for a king suite with seperate rooms (bed and living area) and two televisions. There were only two of us then but now we know where to stay when a kid or more come with. The only bad things were the cable in the bedroom wasn't working and the phones were down. The front desk however was very helpful when it came to informing them of the issue. They were clearly not aware and promised to tend to it right away.
