“A Welcome Break”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

As a transwoman I have had a lot of bad (and I mean BAD) experiences in hotels, and some that were not bad so much as merely uncomfortable. My stay at the Econo Lodge in London Ontario was one of the best hotel experiences I have had as a person trans or otherwise. I was treated with genuine dignity and respect, found the room clean and the atmosphere welcoming and very hospitable.

This is a business anyone in the LGBT community (or ANY community) should support.

This is a budget hotel that has great service. I stay here regularly when I'm in London on business. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The management treats me like I am a valued customer.

Reviewed 15 April 2011

During our stay at econo lodge we were traveling with a group therefore were entitled to a "group discount." NOT a discount at all for their terrible services. The receptionists and manager could not speak English and had terrible customer service. Upon coming to check in they could not find the group we reserved with in their computer. While one person said rooms were available the other said there wasn't. Turns out they do not have a system that tells you who is in what room. Meanwhile our 4 year old son ended up getting into a bed at 12am because of their terrible management skills. The walls and floor were dirty, black hair found in the bed and noisy kids running up and down the halls. Not to mention the seedy strip club next door. Furthermore, we saw countless bums riffling through the dumpsters in the parking lots, I felt unsafe to leave my vehicle there. Also, wireless internet was terrible couldn't load a webpage unless you refreshed it 12 times, wouldn't even recommend it for business. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE service. The hotel 5 minutes down the street was a cheaper price and nicer staff and accommodation. DO NOT go there unless you are getting it for free
