Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Arrived to find the Econo Lodge is now a Royal."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The Royal was still under renovations. No wi fi, no phones in rooms, TV reception was poor. Rooms had ceramic tile floors with no carpet or rugs anywhere. Very uncomfortable room. Flies everywhere due to the construction workers leaving doors open.

"Undeniably shitty overall quality, nice staff."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. Accommodations themselves were alright; bed was comfortable enough. Major downfalls, was in a non smoking room but it reeked of cigarette smoke. Blankets very thin. Room was a bit dirty looking. No microwave or fridge in room, but they did have a coffee maker. There is a small space behind the bed (not too hard to cover up) that a smaller pet can easily hide. Pet policy was only one pet per room which was not stated online (I still brought two cats in though). TL;DR: Staff try and make up for the mediocre to shitty rooms. Would've been just mediocre if the non smoking room didn't smell so much of cigarette smoke that we reeked once we left.

"A good place to sleep."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Ok, let's face it. This place is in serious need of upgrading! The building and the grounds have definitely seen better days. A facelift would probably increase business at least 50%. With that said, Some good things about this motel. My room was originally on the second floor. When I arrived I told the receptionist I am unable to use steps due to an accident I had and she gladly changed my room to the first floor. When I got to my room I was surprised (and happy) that it actually had a handicapped bathroom! About the room it seemed a bit musty from non use but otherwise it was very clean. The maid service cleaned and freshened the room the next day and from then on it was great. The one thing that really deserves to be spoken about is the people who work there. They are, in my opinion, a reason to go back. Everyone was helpful and courteous. The ladies in the maid service were just wonderful I just really can't say enough good things about everyone who works there! If I ever have the opportunity to come back to Akron I will probably stay there again because it truly is a good place to sleep!
