Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lied about transportation availability and refund of $100 deposit."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The room was fine and the complimentary breakfast was great. However, the management as of two years ago was corrupt. See title heading.

"Got kicked out two hrs after arriving because I was told I could bring my dogs."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Reservations said this was a pet friendly hotel, but after I arrived AND paid my $100 cash deposit, management asked me to leave because of my dogs. I am still waiting to get my reservation fee and deposit returned. Apparently there is no communication between the hotel management and reservations.

"Buggy"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Room was in need of repairs. The toilet had no seat, the room phone was broken and there were ants EVERYWHERE. Neighborhood was a little shady. Until this motel is upgraded, do not come here.

"Check in lousy."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The check in was the worst I have ever seen the room we paid for in advance was not available and we were told there were additional charges that were not listed on the web site or when I called to confirm the reservation will never stay again wort in my 50 plus years of staying in hotels.

"Never got room but paid for two nights!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
H4153713 I reserved two nights on my credit card over the internet. They required $100 deposit when she got there. She didn't have the cash so they did not let her stay and I tried to use the credit card and they wouldn't take it over the phone.

"Wanted Cash Deposit."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
My nephew was not allowed to enter because they did not have $100 cash deposit. No mention was made that this would be necessary upon completion of the reservation. Plus no one at booking for Hotel Planner asked for me to supply a credit card number for them as I made and was paying for the reservation. The hotel never attempted to contact me and let me know that there was a problem and my nephew could not reach me. I am still trying to get my money back as they claimed it a no show even though my family ended up having to sleep a car.

Not going back here ever again. Would rather sleep in my car. Also guilty of false advertisement.

"Not for family."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The wall was dirty. Ants came to our empty cups which we used for juice the night before. Old. Although no vaping and smoking sign, it smelled like marijuana by one of the outside stairs. Homeless people around the neighborhood. Disappointing to bring kids.

"Scary Location"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Stayed there en route to Vegas and pulled up to police in the parking lot, tweekers walking around the area. Also the room wasn't the best, wish I had just saved my money and stayed in my vehicle for the night.

"This Econolodge Was Good Choice Through Hotel Planner"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We were pleased with the room and it's contents. The location is great because it is on North Temple where there are lots of services like food, light rail, gasoline, etc. and it is so close to Temple Square and other notable sites of Salt Lake City! We will choose it again. The only problem was that there was not a shuttle van from/to the airport and the employees gave conflicting reports about why that was the case. On the website and on the phone when we booked our reservation we were told that shuttle service by Econolodge was available.

"Paid for a hotel an couldn't even say in."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
So I booked an paid for a room I couldn't even stay in. Didn't even refund me or even give me a extra day or nothing that is bullshit. I appreciate it if you could fix it for me by giving me a two day stay.

"The worst I have ever had in all my travels."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The motel was very run down. There was vulgar language and four letter words all over the door to the laundry along with big holes that had been punched in. The room was freshly cleaned according to the maid in the hall, but there was no running water and we wondered what she had used to clean. When asked about the water, she said she would tell the front desk and then came back to say it would be on in five minutes.The plumbing was so old that we could not get the bathtub turned on after the water came on in the sink. The TV was so old that you could not tell which buttons did what. There was a remote in the room but the TV too old to be remote controlled. The stairway was nasty with cigarette butts and litter all over them. We stayed in the room only a few minutes and decided we had to leave because of its condition. I ask at the front desk to get a refund of my money but he refused and said we had to take it up with expedia because it was booked through them. I would not have let my dog stay in that room and the other ladies with me agreed that it was deplorable and we would never stay in a Econo lodge again. By the way, the sign on the motel said Super 8 instead of Econo lodge. Very confusing.

"Pretty Good."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Friendly staff and accommodating. I would stay here again. The area itself might not look pretty and the transients hanging around wienerschnitzel doesn't help the scenery but we felt safe our entire stay and had no problems with anyone. The room itself had no issues minus the microwave not working but overall we were comfortable.

"This has to be the easiest reservation I have ever encountered, as far as a group reservation anyway. When I made group reservations for my other daughter's wedding in Houston a few years ago, it was a nightmare! Wish I would have known about you then." Carolyn H. - Boston, MA
