Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Cannot apply discounts after reserving room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I am an AARP member. I tried to apply this discount after reserving the stay at this hotel; owner refused to honor the AARP discount. So be sure you ask for your discount PRIOR TO RESERVING ROOM. Breakfast was on the very minimal side. I will stay at Hampton Inn next door when I return to Athens, TN.

"Not as advertised."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I booked a smoking room, only to be told when I arrived they do not have smoking rooms. There is a $250.00 damage deposit and a $250.00 smoking deposit. Yes, these were returned, however they hold $500.00 out of your account. The front office doors were locked at 6:30 when we arrived and I had to wait for someone to answer the bell. It wad an average hotel that I had to jump through hoops to get a room.
