“Lights, Locks and TV worked”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

I try to find something positive for every review I write while being honest about the accomodations. For this establishment I can honestly say the lights, locks and TV worked in the room. The rug was worn, the sheets threadbare. It is obviously an older motel and it's primary value now is for travelers passing through town in need of minimal accomodations for one night - or for the workers as part of the local fracking industry.

The continental breakfast is passable, the fitness room houses a treadmill, eleptical machine and stair master in a room about the size of a laundry room. There is a gas station/convenience store next to the motel, and a great number of restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the place. So if you are traveling on business or need a place to stay over for one night while driving through Williamsport, and you're in a pinch the Econo Lodge might do - just lower your expectations for the stay. (NOT recommended for families or stays of more than 1 night.)

Very nice room, decent breakfast and a friendly, helpful staff make for an enjoyable weekend reunion for my wife and I. Truck parking and adjacent convience store also aided a pleasant stay. I'm sure wewill return in the future.

We went here because my grandfather designed it over 60 yrs ago. Got to our room and wow......the sheets, comforters smelled of urine. The rooms outdated. Started itching waiting 10 mins. Went to desk to check out immediately.

Room Tip: Don't stay.

Stayed for LLWS. Place wasn't bad. They just charged way too much. Guess they can with the games in town. I would pay about 60 a night. It was a good location for the fields and places to eat. They had a continental breakfast.

We were forced to stay at this econolodge as the town was booked solid. staff was pleasant enough and the room was very dated. My wife did not want to stay because it was below standards by a long shot. I pulled back my sheets to go to sleep and found popcorn and hair between the sheets !!!! went to front desk and they said the room was suppose to be an extended stay but they left early (no kidding). maintenance guy brings new sheets I open the door and he is smoking a pipe holding our sheets! Well my wie loses it!! she doesn't sleep all night and we checked out tired and restless. hotel gave half off the rate but I just want them to clean up there act!!! oh don't sit in the chairs as they are the dirtest things I ever have seen !!!!!!

This place is just gross...where to begin...the bathroom had a little hole with ants coming in and out, and a hair that wasn't ours. The carpet was so dirty it made our feet black, literally. Also my 2 year old found trash beside the bed that wasn't ours. When we made our reservations we asked for a crib and they brought us the grossest pack n play, there were yellow stains all over the mattress, and they charged us 10$ for it, they're free most places. Also the room was way over priced. You would be better off sleeping in your car. Seriously.

My dad booked this place for my girlfriend, baby and I from 6/12 - 6/15. We didn't last 2 nights. Upon showing up we noticed questionable caution tape across one of the hotel doors. For the price we paid we expected much more. The staff was friendly but the rooms need updated badly. The furniture in the rooms were stained and carpets old. Found hairs in the bathtub and due to the "gas men" it was noisy at night. We jumped ships the next day to a comfort inn right across the street. If you want the least expensive place in town and a single male (possibly a gas man) this might not be such a bad place. Would not recommend for a family.
