“Acceptable for the price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

My friends and I stayed there for two days while on a hunting trip in Ohio. When we first arrived we were taken aback by the exterior of the hotel. It was obvious that it had not been updated in quite awhile. We arrived early and the hotel manager allowed us to check in. We were pleasantly suprised by the room, although it was outdated, it was clean and did not have a negative odor. The room did not contain an alarm clock or other items you may find in a more expensive hotel, but it did meet our needs. The shower water came out like a pressure washer which was very refreshing. The hotel maids did a great job at cleaning our rooms. We will return there for our next trip.

Checked in at 10:30pm. Was surprised by signs near front window and lobby reading "Restrooms for guests only-don't even ask!" What a way to welcome guests! Found out it's because of a nearby racetrack that attracts large crowds who apparently need bathrooms.

Room on first floor (of two) was my choice. Odd layout as must enter room off lobby/corridor, but can exit room directly into parking lot.

Fridge and microwave in room. Seemed clean, even bathroom.

No hair dryer in the room, but one available if you ask in the lobby. I had brought my own.

Bed was comfortable but a little saggy in the middle. Pillows need replacing and I advise them next time not to write ECONO LODGE with a Sharpie on the pillow if they're going to use thin sheets/pillowcases.

Wireless worked ok.

Was not impressed with breakfast: some bread for toast. Burned coffee. No hot water available as clerk forgot to plug in the hot plate to heat it up-although there were tea bags and hot chocolate packets nearby. A couple of yesterday's (or the day before?) stale pastries (I believe they were frozen overnight as they were still pretty cold).

For a place to stay in that price range it wasn't bad. I wouldn't want to be there for more than one night. Don't believe the area around it was unsafe, just kind of dark and not well-lighted. No restaurants within walking distance.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way to the Holmes County Amish area of southeastern Ohio. The motel is easy to find; being right off I-71. The area is a little barren in terms of restaurants so you will have to drive south on I-71 to have a bite at places like Cracker Barrel or Steak 'n Shake.
Personally, we had driven across the Midwest that day and were just looking for a clean place to stay before setting off again the next morning. The Econo Lodge served us pretty well as the room was indeed clean, quiet and comfortable. We did not spend enough time there to make any judgements on its other facilities. For less than fifty dollars for the night's stay during the peak of fall foliage, I think we scored a good value.

On our way to the Cleveland Clinic for my son's doctor appointment, my mom (who insisted on making the travel arrangements) chose this motel for the halfway point to stop for the night. It was right off of I-71, but the area was... desolate. It was easy to find though, because it was well-signed and really one of three open businesses there. There was a gentleman's club and a fireworks merchant down the road a bit.

When we got there, the first thing we noticed was the signs in the front window saying, No public restroom, for customers only, don't even ask. Not necessarily the thing I want to see, because it made me immediately think that the people that hung around there weren't people I wanted to run across late at night. There was a boarded-up spa and a boarded-up restaurant in front of the hotel.

But the man inside was polite and the room was clean. There were some stains on the box springs but I chose to ignore that since I don't sleep on them. The linens were clean, the TV worked. Our key didn't work on the outside door, so we had to go through the front to get in. There was no coffeepot, no alarm clock. They did have coffee in the lobby in the mornings. We didn't have enough towels for a group of four, but the door to the linens was open so we just helped ourselves to what we needed and got a couple of extra pillows. We didn't ask.

In the morning I needed to fax some paperwork and when we asked where we could go in town to do that, they let us use their fax machine at $2 a page. I figured it was easier to spend the six bucks there as to drive around and burn six bucks worth of gas to find another place to do it. Mom said the coffee was ok, I don't drink it. The beds were comfortable enough (I don't sleep well in hotels anyway most of the time and having four people in the room and the TV on all night didn't help). The air contitioner worked fine.

The pool area had been filled in and was planted with what appeared to be tomatoes and some other vegetable plants. Honestly I think a place that didn't seem to get that much business is better off without the liability of having a public pool area. I tried to get some wireless access for the laptop but even though I could connect to someone's weak signal, I could not access the internet.

If I had to stay there again, I probably would. I liked that it was quiet and that the staff was pleasant enough to help with the few problems we had. It's a bit run-down but I would rather stay in a clean, older place than a new place that has snarky help at twice the price. At around fifty bucks a night, it was a place to sleep and shower. There isn't anywhere to eat close by, so be prepared to go north or south back down I-71 for something to eat unless you want pizza delivered (there are a TON of pizza places).

As my title says, it wasn't anything special, but it was a place to stay. The building next door was boarded up, so it was hard to tell what kind of neighborhood it was. The room was again, nothing special, but it did the job. The location was great, right off the highway. Would I stay here again? Maybe.

I hardly know where to start complaining about the hotel. I have been using Expedia often for years and never expected to book a hotel like that Econo Lodge. It had none, none I repeat, of the amenities listed, not even a clock. It was filthy, and as a woman traveling alone I really feared for my safety there.
I did file a complaint that night with front desk (moved rooms, the bath tub was filled with hairs and the room smelled of dirty socks - the 2nd room really as bad) and was so furious about getting stuck there I called Choice Hotels at 8 pm soon after I arrived to tell them the place is shockingly bad. The restaurant is boarded up, dilapidated, the pool is filled with concrete with weeds growing out of it. No other businesses in sight of the desolate hotel - except for the boarded up, bright green Rainbo Spa next door and the Gentlemen's Club half a mile away!
This was unbelievable. If I hadn't driven a UHAUL by myself for 350 miles that day I would have kept going.
The shower curtain was ripped, as were the lamp shades. The carpet in the hall was filthy and frayed, the room's 2 chairs had huge, disgusting stains on them.
I don't know how websites vet places, but this hotel is not at all what it says it is on the Expedia site.
I even took pictures - my favorite is of the back of the door of my 2nd room where the room rates/safety info should be - there was only a black sticker with a skull and crossbones on it. Yikes - beware is right!
Signed, A not that picky frequent traveler...
