Verified reviews of Econo Lodge Cortland

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked in recently:
"Not kept up."
Overall score2.0/ 5
This property is in poor condition; the bathroom was as clean as it can be, however, the grout was too old and the tub/shower in poor condition that it cannot be cleaned thoroughly. The fridge was leaking on the floor; the TV did not work; there was a pervasive smell, even in a non smoking room. The parking lot has a dumpster with trash/old mattresses on the ground. I did not feel safe coming back to the room in the evening or leaving anything of value in the car. I do not expect a lot from an inexpensive hotel, but I do expect a certain level of cleanliness. The only positive was the proximity to restaurants for walking.

"Awful Experience"
Overall score1.0/ 5
This place was terrible and is a drug dealer hotel. My two daughters stayed here and it was disgusting. They could not sleep due to the smell of smoke, drug deals and police presence. This place should be shut down and we should be refunded our money. I think we need to file a complaint with the NYS department of health.

"Terrible Experience"
Overall score1.0/ 5
The main room looked nice the bathroom took a turn for the worst. The bathtub was like stepping on a water bed and the room upstairs was leaking into the ceiling. When I checked in I felt uneasy about the hotel my feelings were confirmed the night we checked out when we were awoken at 4:30 in the morning to someone breaking into our car.

"Smelled like dog, dirty blankets, scratchy sheets."
Overall score1.0/ 5
Smelled dirty, like dog. Don't think anyone has ever cleaned this room or opened a window to air it out. Huge disappointment. Was not expecting much, but an overall fresh smell, fresh smelling and clean SOFT sheets, clean blankets and a bathroom that didn't look like it should be demolished and redone would have been nice. The one acceptable aspect; the bed was comfortable enough. If only I hadn't spent most of the night worrying about itchy sheets..,.
