“No Heat During Recent Stay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

I checked into this motel on 2/16 because I was skiing at Jack Frost the next day. The selection of hotels in the area was limited and the mid-range hotels nearby (Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn, etc) were charging high prices due to the holiday weekend.

I paid $65 for one night, which I considered to be a bargain at the time. I have stayed at many lower-end hotels, and I did not come in expecting much. We checked in around 11pm at night and promptly went to our room. When we entered, the thermostat registered 58 degrees. I set the heat to an appropriate temperature and the system only blew out cold air. The issue persisted in the second room we switched to. We finally switched to a third room, which also had no heat, but we decided to stay put due to the fact that it was midnight and we needed a good night's rest. I resorted to using the electric stove to heat the room, which was not ideal.

Apart from the heat issue, the room wasn't very clean and in poor repair. There were also two major safety concerns - in the third room, the chain door lock was broken and the smoke detectors were disconnected.

On the plus size, the rooms were very large and all had full kitchens. A family of four could easily fit into one of the suites. If this motel were cleaner and did not have the issues described above, I would gladly recommend it to any budget-conscious traveler.

The hotel is a bit run down but clean, very close to Jack Frost ski area. The people at the front desk were very friendly. We had a good size one bedroom suite, comfortable for our family of six. It was nice to have the kitchenette area although nothing is provided except for the stove, fridge and microwave. You have to bring plates, cups, silverware, any pots/pans for cooking.

Best place we ever stayed at! rooms are large with a kitchen! living room is seperate from bedroom.Every room is a suite (extended stay type), so you'll be equipped with a kitchen no matter what.We spent an extended period of time at the Econolodge Inn due to temporary work in the area. All in all the Econolodge Inn was perfect for our short term living arrangements and we enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: call in advance if you need first floor room

The only reason I stayed here was because of the good reviews. Maybe they have upgraded some of the rooms, but not mine, 139, for sure. There are sliding glass doors right beside the front door. They weren't locked & there wasn't a security bar. I ended up putting a chair on the track. The regular door only had a dead bolt that didn't seem to lock all the way. I put the other 3 chairs in front of it. I still didn't feel safe (female traveling alone) so I put my pepper spray on the night stand & slept in my clothes. The bed was so hard, it felt like I was sleeping on the floor. Worst of all, when I pulled the shower curtain back to get in tub, it had a bad ring, looked disgusting. So I didn't even get to take a shower. Will NOT stay again.

Older property that shows wear and tear. But it was very clean and the staff very friendly. The room I booked at a very reasonable AAA rate turned out to be a spacious suite with separate bedroom, living room and kitchenette. Provided breakfast is bare bones. I was in the area to cycle the Lehigh Gorge State Park trail. Location is somewhat remote, but easy to reach from Interstate 80. It's about 20 minutes to Pocono Whitewater's rafting base, and 35 minutes to downtown Jim Thorpe. Jack Frost Ski Area is nearby. Yet all things considered, it was a bargain for a national chain.

The room was a spotless 1 bedroom apartment, which consisted of a refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave! There were 2 televisions in the apartment. The rental rates were spectacular. The noise from the road was minimal. The staff were incredibly friendly, indeed! AAA is accepted and provides a 10% discount.

Room Tip: Get something on the first floor.

Although the hotel needs quite a bit of renovations, the room was more than expected, it had a living room, eating area, kitchen and separate bedroom and two TVs which is a plus when there are kids with you.
