Disappointing

Reviewed 18 october, 2021

Location reasonable, cleanliness fair, but poorly maintained, and not much in the hospitality department. I was traveling by myself, so I consciously chose a modest hotel in a decent location, but I had experienced the most modest and chose to pay just a little bit more for maybe not rock bottom. It was a disappointment even on that metric. The sink was cracked and poorly repaired. The shower stall looked as if it had been done on someone's first day on the job, and the bed was the most uncomfortable I ever had paid for. The Wifi was very wonky and glitchy. The worst came later, though. When I honestly reported the above in a survey from the hotel, the GM emailed me back, and in all caps basically invited me to never stay in an Econolodge again. No worries. These people should not be in the hospitality business.

Descent for the price. Not enough hot water and bad WiFi

Reviewed 12 july, 2021

Room was clean but the WiFi never worked properly. Very disappointed. Also, I was taking a hot bath and they only allotted a little bit of hot water per room. I could not enjoy a hot bath soak. Other than that it was ok. If you don't need a hot shower/bath or WiFi then you would be fine here. Otherwise, if they don't address the concerns I would advise to go somewhere else.

Low budget but great stay

Reviewed 28 january, 2020

OK Econo Lodge is at the low budget end. However, that does not mean they should be under valued. My family rented 2 rooms over the new year period and we had a great stay. There were a couple of minor hiccups on the first day ... hot water for the shower and the need for a few more towels. Both problems were swiftly sorted by the management. Our 5 days there went well - plus we found a short cut to Colonial Williamsburg visitor centre. There is a good Italian restaurant only yards away and a couple of pancake houses just round the corner. Thanks for getting 2020 off to a great start

Very reasonable prices for a nice quiet, clean hotel

Reviewed 27 july, 2019

Since I make all my reservations online, I always foolow up with a phone call to the hotel to confirm. Kevin at the front desk was terrific,friendly, curteous, professional. This hotel is set off the Parkway in a country setting. Rooms were spotless, comfortable beds, wood floors, security lightening at night. Since the owners live on premises you can get help 24/7. It was so nice getting up to have my coffee and see all the birds, and some neighboring houses that were beatiful. The pictures they post on their website are true. If you make a left out of the driveway, it will lead you to a nice country route to historic Williamsburg and also plenty of antique shops. The only con is the street can be busy so be careful pulling out. It's not loud traffic just the neighborhood. Would absolutely stay here again.

Reviewed 30 march, 2019

I stayed there with my family it was nice and quite at this place. I stayed here earlier at this place they never disappoint me. it looks like they had little upgrade at the room. it was carpet floor earlier but this time it was new wood floor. we went out for dinner and there was some good food restaurants as well also a convenient store near by and many more place to do activity around. very nice and friendly staff.
