“Greta Value”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

I was traveling back from DC and needed to stay in Meadville.

I saw a coupon for the Days Inn, but their exterior showed such a lack of maintenance (rotting wood trim) that I drove off...nest I tried the Holiday Inn Express..their rooms were $129, but they had none available.

I drove over to EconoLodge....I paid $50 for a very basic, but very clean room.

The staff is very caring. The guy ahead had got his room key when the counter lady realized he had a cooler...she arranged for him to have a room with a fridge. Sure you are only getting toast or a bagel for breakfast, but I didn't have time to linger over my morning meal so that suited me just fine.

Stayed here for a night with family in the 2 double bed room. This is literally a place to crash your head for the night. This hotel was almost half way point for our trip form Toronto to Washington D.C area. For the price paid to what you get is fair. You cannot expect a hot breakfast at this price and that is exactly what the breakfast is. A very small breakfast with no hot items that you typically might expect in a continental breakfast.
The rooms are really really small, so don't expect anything huge. Even though it is next to highway, we did not hear much noise. We checked in late at night and checked out early next morning, so cannot comment a whole lot on cleanliness of carpet, but the beds were fine to sleep for the night. This location might be a place to stay for someone coming from Toronto area for a shopping trip to Grove City, which is 35 mins south of Meadville. The hotels in Grove City, PA area are little pricey and their not much in terms of dining in Grove City near Premium Outlets. Meadville seemed to have restaurants lot more than Grove City.

I'm surprised by the negative reviews - we walked in without a reservation and a coupon from the Pennsylvania "welcome centre" on a Saturday afternoon and were given a very clean and comfortable room for the night for roughly $50. It's not the Ritz, but it had everything you could want or need - a comfortable bed, a great TV and large bathroom with a great shower. We would have been quite happy to stay for more than a night but we were just passing through. These sorts of "budget hotels" are very much hit and miss and we've had bad experiences in the past, but this particular location was a winner! We plan to stay here on our next drive thru the State.

I trusted the reviews on this site for accuracy. This hotel was NOT clean and it did not smell fresh. If this was a good Econo Lodge (again, based on reviews), it leaves me wondering what the average ones are like. No more Econo Lodge for me.

This hotel is very nice for a budget hotel, so much that I would not even qualify its as "budget". I would never have chose a Choice Hotels product from previous bad experiences many years ago. But, this one had such fantastic ratings on all the web sites, and a great price for the area compared to the Hampton, and this place was spotless everywhere, the rooms are small but nice, and designed to be easily kept clean. From the floor to the ceiling, including the bathroom, it was impeccable! I will be deciding by guest ratings and not hotel brands from now on!

Room Tip: I always request top floor rooms near the end of the hall & farthest from the elevator, no one o...

As an earlier reviewer noted, Econolodges can be hit and miss. This one was a definite hit. Welcoming staff, clean accommodation and very good value for the dollar. Would not hesitate to stay there in future.
