“Stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

We traveled to mt pocono on July 31 2014. We decided on econostay because the reviews and price seemed like a great value boy were we wrong. We arrived in the evening and entered the hotel the entrence is very nicely landscaped unfortunately that is all that is nice about it. There are many vehicles in the lot that have severe damage to them. It appears as though they have been there a very long time Near the pool is a broken down gazebo and in front of that is a Mazda pickup on flat tires it is clear it has been here a very long time. There are people living here and they hang their laundry in front of there room right beside your room. We went to get our keys and the lobby was a mess kids stuff everywhere the desk is a mess very unprofessional. We got our keys and checked out our room. There was a mop and bucket outside our room with disgusting water in it we opened the door and could see the mild in the bathroom from the entrence the room is disgusting and appears like it gets cleaned once a month if that I would never stay at this hotel even if you paid me.

My husband and I planned a last minute trip to the Poconos to enjoy some skiing. We would usually make it a day trip but we were not looking forward to a drive back to Long Island after a day on the slopes. We found the Econostay on my phone and booked a room not knowing what to expect. We arrived and were immediately stuck by it's unique look and sprawling grounds. This is not a genetic looking chain motel. The second thing that struck us was the personal attention we received. Every employee we encountered from the manager to maintenance was eager to make sure our stay was a good one. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the lack of cable. But we didn't come to sit in our room and watch TV and there was free wifi access so it turned out to be a very small issue.
Overall experience was great. We are so happy we found this little gem. We will be back!

We originally booked another motel in the Mount Pocono area only to find it not to our expectations. We luckily found this gem. The staff was so friendly and nice to deal with. Yes this place is basic budget but that's all we needed as we were here for two weeks visiting family we had not seen in years and were on a budget. Its nice to see a family run place these days. The manager and his wife were great people who even arranged reservations at local restaurants four us and our family. It located away for town and was so quiet an nite I felt like I was back home. I would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: Chose a room in the front, the view is amazing.

Great room/ price/ area/ people! perfect area right down the road from the casino, supermarket, restaurants, and only a few minutes away from the crossings! stayed for a week had two dogs with me and they loved it! they relaxed had other dogs and people to play with. pool was clean and wonderful not a lot of people had the pool almost to myself. the staff and other motel quest where nice i could have spent the day talking to them and still have a great day! manager was nice and always had what i needed on supply! Al and Tony where very funny and helpful. LOVED it there cant wait to get back to PA.

Room Tip: Be friendly and everyone will be more then helpful.

It was cheap and the rooms look outrageous. went shopping at the crossing outlets then went back to the motel and slept all day. it very peaceful. Next time i come up i know where to stay. thank you econostay.

We stopped here for a 1 night while traveling. I think I slept about an hour between hearing barking dogs and the guy in the next room coughing. Room was very old, bed very uncomfortable and the walls very thin. place was not very clean. This was a one and done for me I would never stay here again and I would not recommend anyone stay here.

We recently needed to find a motel in the Mt Pocono area due to a death in our family. We needed something fast and did not have time to compare the rates and amenities of local motels. Luckily we were pleasantly surprised. The price could not be beat. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, giving us detailed directions and restaurant recommendations We travel from Long Island to the Poconos at least once a year to visit family in the area and we are so glad we came across this gem! It was clean, quiet and peaceful. We were given the attention we'd expect at a small country inn at the price of a budget motel. We plan to return under happier circumstances when we have more time to enjoy the area.
