I came to visit my boyfriend on his leave from Ft. Benning. The hotel was close and served its purpose. The staff was amazing though. The ladies at the front desk were funny and the manager Brandon even carried my bags to my room for me. Everyone there is so nice and I had a wonderful stay. I will definitely be back.

We spent two nights while attending graduation ceremony at Ft Benning. We had all that we needed to be comfortable. Setting was clean and quiet and as advertised- Closest to the Fort
main gate. The breakfast had all you could want to eat or drink.

Room Tip: Rooms to the back are quieter and away from the traffic noise of Victory Drive.

Close to base. Area looks sketchy but noticed motel has policies in place to deal with. People friendly, treat you like family. Thank you Temeca (sorry if I didn't spell your name correctly). PROS: let me check in earlier than 3pm (room was ready). Clean room and everything in room at my fingertips. Super soft towels, tissue holder (great for tidying up and cleaning smart phone). VERY comfortable bed. CONS: Walls are paper thin. Breakfast quality: eggs did not look or taste like eggs. Need to add other items: hot oatmeal AND real condiments (not that fake stuff you had out): butter/brown sugar/syrup, fruit, Splenda and drinking water (not just hot water for tea).

Room Tip: I was in the back facing the storage units.

WE stayed at the Econo Lodge for my brother's graduation and we were greeted with a warm smile from Stephanie, she went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay including finding dollar stores to restaurants. Whenever we came into the lobby she was always eager to assist us. She made our stay at your lodge a pleasure.

The Econolodge by Ft Benning is extremely close to the fort, to Commando's, and to food. The main issue is getting back on I-185 to get to more civilian life, because the exit is closed off right there on Victory Drive---though I could get on Victory Drive. I had to go into the city a little to get back on that interstate.

The breakfast is mediocre, the floor of the room was very dirty (I probably shouldn't walk around in it without shoes though), and the only channel that came through on the TV was the kids' channel. However, the room was a good value, there were plenty of towels, the beds were clean and very comfortable, there was a fridge, a microwave, and the free internet was fast. The noise level was minimal. Also, a nice employee (Synthia) offered to help me pack my car (I was toting my child and heavy suitcases). Apparently she hadn't checked in for work yet, so she said she was just waiting around.

Overall, I'd come back.

Room Tip: I got a room in the very back, next to the forest line and farthest from the road.

Thanks for a pleasant two night stay for my brother and me. We were glad to be so near Ft Benning for my grandson's graduation. The prices were reasonable for the location. The staff was very friendly and professional. The rooms were so clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the breakfast, especially the orange juice and coffee. The coffee in the room was good also, and you even had decaf. You're doing a GREAT JOB and it shows! It's so REFRESHING to actually stay at a motel that does everything that you hope they will do.

My husband and I recently had a very bad experience at a different hotel and happened upon this one; we asked to see a room and was immediately taken to a suite (they only had suites left to rent out). There were only 5 more rooms available so we took the suite hoping that we would have a peaceful night's sleep. We were on the end of building two and were both surprised at how quiet the room was, especially since the hotel was almost at capacity. Brandon C. at the front desk was wonderful; he even got us a better deal than what we were originally quoted. We will certainly be going back to this hotel when we visit the Providence Canyons again!

Room Tip: We had a corner suite on the first floor of the second building; loved it!
