I stayed at the Econo Lodge North in Ridgeland in May 2008. My husband and I were in town for a friend's graduation and we stayed at the same hotel as her family.
I do have a few complaints, I know what to expect from a room that only costs $50/night, but I thought that people would want to know about our experience. Our room was relatively clean, but the no smoking room was RIGHT next door to a smoking room, so inevitably, it smelled like smoke. There was a gap under the door about 2 inches tall, letting in whatever could fit. The toilet paper holder was just set in the wall, any kind of pulling on the toilet paper made it fall out of the wall. The shower head had mold on it and looked like it hadn't been properly cleaned in at least a month. I don't know about most hotels, but the bed didn't have a fitted sheet only a second flat sheet. The room itself was overall worn looking.
Our room wasn't as bad as what I was told about the rooms my friend's family was given. Her aunt was given a room that had dirty towels...the second room she was given she said smelled like urine. As a result, for the remainder of her trip, she was given an acceptable room and it was free.
Now for the good: The location is great. We walked to Applebees (Where you get a 10% discount w/ your room key). Everything in the room worked well. The ironing board was missing, but we had no reason to iron anything, so we didn't ask for one. Check out was easy. The room was inexpensive. AND the A/C worked GREAT. It was so humid and warm on the days we were there, the a/c was wonderful.
Something that bothered my husband and I was that it was very difficult to check in, the guy at the front desk had a thick accent. When we booked with Priceline, we used our Visa card and when we checked in, the guy insisted we used a Mastercard. Neither of us have a Mastercard, so I don't know what went wrong.
