“Dirty, Outdated, Disgusting”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

This ranks among the filthiest motels I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. Horrific odors, mystery stains on furniture and bedding. Thoroughly gross. Owner Mr Patel was rude and profane. Formal complaint made to Choice Hotels. No decent person should be subjected to this. And Choice should be ashamed of themselves.

For a modest price, we got a fine room, fully equipped with fridge, microwave, upholstered chair with ottoman, etc. Very comfortable. The continental breakfast in the morning was one of the best I've ever seen, with waffles made on the spot in a waffle iron, eggs, pastries, etc. And the staff was genuinely friendly and caring. On our next trip south we will definitely stay there again.

The staff was very pleasant and efficient. My room was comfortable and clean, a very good value for the price. The room had a refrigerator and microwave oven which is extremely helpful on extended visits. Also several restaurants within walking distance, nice not having to get back in my car after several hours on the road. Upon check out Mr. And Mrs. Patel truly cared about how my stay was. This was refreshing. Mike B.

The owners Mr. And Mrs. Patel always try to go that extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Great breakfast. Quiet and convenient to port and interstate. Definately stay again

I stay here whenever I'm in town on business. Very friendly staff and very clean with great rates including cdl discounts. Very quick check in and out. Has truck parking and has a Waffle House next door and also has a few other places to eat close by.

A CLEAN no frills hotel right off I-95 in Brunswick GA. It's not a Marriott but hey, it's only half the cost!
Our room had a king bed, desk & chair plus an occasional chair and ottoman. The TV wasn't a flat screen but worked fine. The bedding was comfortable and allowed a good night’s sleep. The vanity is located outside of the toilet/shower area helps when getting ready in the morning.
The hotel's lobby/breakfast area is small and selections at breakfast were somewhat limited and the coffee was so-so… but at least there's a Dunkin next door.
Very friendly front desk attendants mentioned that the nearby Zachary's Restaurant (excellent) offers a 10% discount on meals for hotel guests.
It's obvious that management works hard to ensure this property is clean and maintained. It would be hard to find a better hotel for your money.

Room Tip: Corner room 221 was quiet.

After writing a nice review, we stayed at this Econo Lodge again and found
EVERYTHING TO BE DIFFERENT. Our "no smoking room" smelled of smoke, breakfast choices had changed to sparse and the hotel did not look clean. Disappointed this time.
