“It has location going for it, but that is about it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We were not expecting the Ritz when we made our reservation here. I read several reviews and determined that this hotel was old, but fairly clean and in a good location to get to AT&T Stadium. Good location, yes; everything else, no. The room was outdated, kind of clean, and had strange "solutions" to dilemmas, such as a fan in the wall between the "living room" and the bedroom to get the heat or air conditioning in from the "living room," as that is the only place they had an air conditioner/heater. We woke up the first morning in the hotel to NO hot water and towels that were either stained or had 2-inch diameter holes in them. When my husband went to talk to the staff about this, they offered to send someone from maintenance for the water problem (and no one ever came,) and handed him a pile of towels, of which ONE has neither stains or holes. After we got back to the room that night, we checked the hot water again. This time we did have hot water, but it was scalding, and there was no in-between. Freeze or be scalded. Those are your choices. Then dry off with a stained and/or holey towel. It is in a good location, but I would suggest spending a little more and staying in one of the other hotels that are in this area.

For the price we paid, I expected more. Yes it's only a 1.1 mile walk to Cowboy stadium and they have a shuttle (they charge $5/person) and then charged me ($10 for a parking permit) but the rooms leave a lot to be desired especially for the price I paid. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and the beds were fine but the linens had holes in them. We told them that 5 people were sleeping and there were only 4 towels. The towels had holes in them. The rooms are old and in need of updating. The seal on the exterior door was bad and let in the cold air. The staff was nice enough. Good thing our family pretty much was exhausted so we got back from the game and went to bed. Woke up to barely any hot water in the shower. Called down and no one from maintenance came up.

Room Tip: Read the reviews! In this case we ignored them and they were all true.

Where to begin, the trip to Arlington. Nine of us flew to Arlington for a football game. One of the nine booked the trip through Priceline.com and in an attempt to save us all some cash and get us closer to AT & T Stadium, we chose an Econolodge.

When we arrived at the airport and called for the promised shuttle, we were put on hold and hung-up on for approximately 25 minutes. Realizing what we were dealing with, we flagged down a private shuttle and rode to the hotel. Check-in was average. Arriving at the rooms, you could see the age of the hotel and the lack of maintenance that has occurred over the years. Getting into the room was a challenge. Over the three day stay, I would estimate that it took an average of 6-8 tries to get the access card to open the door.

The interior of the rooms were very basic. Two beds in ours, two 1990’s era televisions, the basics. The rooms were really the least of the trouble. The shower has a mat in it covering large cracks which I can only assume leak to the subfloor below. The water in the shower was quite odorific and the drinking water had a very distinct and unpleasant taste. This led us to ask at the desk about complimentary bottled water. The desk clerk actually looked to his left and then his right and said we don’t have any. We were directed to the only vending machine at this fairly large property. Imagine our surprise to learn that it was completely empty, except for the red cream soda, not exactly a great thirst quencher. We were then directed by the front desk staff to a convenience store just around the corner. We walked just around the corner and found nothing so called it a night, a thirsty night. (We did find out from the shuttle driver the next day that there is no convenience store around the corner with the nearest being about .5 miles away across a freeway.)

The maid service was interesting and half hearted to say the least. Half-hearted in the fact that they made up one bed and left the other un-touched and un-made. Half-hearted in the fact that they took the damp towels and left no fresh towels. And half-hearted in the face that when we moved a small sofa we found a lot of dust and stuff clearly indicating that it had been vacuumed for months if not years. Blech.

Breakfast was very carb-heavy and after a quick taste of the bland orange juice, we decided to avail ourselves of the great breakfast buffet at the Holiday Inn next door. Highly recommend that.

We went to the lobby to check in for our flights and print boarding passes, a fairly simple and routine hotel lobby activity. Upon completing the online check in process, I hit print only to discover no ink in the printer thus defeating the purpose of a printer. When I asked the front desk to replace the ink cartridge so that I could print our boarding passes, I was told they could not. Surprise. To make up for the inconvenience, they allowed me to use their desktop computer to complete the check in process one more time and to print the boarding passes. The only hitch in this giddy-up was that I had to stand on the customer side of the counter to do it. So………to reach the keyboard and mouse I had to stand on one foot, leaning across the front desk like a height challenged pool shark attempting to make that one last shot.

Perhaps the only upside of our involvement with the Arlington Econolodge was the shuttle driver who went out of his was to be hospitable. (No involvement with the trip from the airport as he never got the message because the desk clerk kept hanging up on us.) Luis is top notch and reliable. We asked him to pick us up at a certain time and place and he was there early and ready to go. Luis told us that he was a contract employee and not an actual Econolodge employee. I would suspect that explains the good customer service. Kudos to Luis.

Room Tip: Run as fast as you can to another hotel.

The location of this hotel is pretty much the only thing its got going for it. Dirty carpet, old appliances and an odd room setup...pretty much sums it up. I could see outside when lying in bed (the rooms have external entrances) the seal around the door was so bad. Good location from Six Flags, Rangers and AT&T, but spend the extra moola to stay somewhere more secure.

We stayed at this Hotel on Thanksgiving for the Cowboy's game. It is in a really good location, however, they take advantage of this location giving you a terrible service and high rates.
The hotel is old, dirty, uncomfortable and we never got hot water!
If you are going to the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, keep looking for a better option.

We only stayed 1 night to hit Six Flags and it was like a mini apartment. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. There was a kitchen with a full size fridge and a microwave and even a few plates, a cup and 2 knives. Odd quantity but at least they were there. Its a standard room on the bottom floor. The only noise I heard was from the maids who got to our room just after 9a.m. The bed was comfy...not really firm but not exactly soft. I need a relatively firm bed but this worked just fine. I slept very well on it. The shower was a little odd but we got told that was just how the knobs were in Arlington. It is very close to Six Flags and gas stations if needed. It was a quiet road but only one entrance/exit. I would stay there again if I'm ever in that area.

Thank you very much for your review. I am glad to hear that you found our staff very accommodating and friendly and helpful. Good to know that you found the shuttle service very helpful, in fact it was myself, the general manager also working as a shuttle driver during your entire stay with us. Thank you again.
