This room was absolutely disgusting!! It was a run down outdated room to begin with but that wasn't the problem. It was filthy!! There was hair everywhere! Crumbs all over! Dirty paper plates in one drawer, socks in another and some type of clothing in the third drawer. Choose not to even touch it!! Along the edges of the bed... More

Will start with check in. Since we arrived late, I understand not being allowed to come into the lobby to check in as there are plenty of hotels that operate this way. However, the hotel clerk seemed to be quite scared of his own shadow. That should be an indicator, but I won't judge on that. We were given an... More

There were bed bugs on my pillow and mattress. Pic attached. Informed the office of such (had to walk there because there was NO phone in the room) and the guest services lady was not surprised in the least way! Because Columbus was so busy that weekend, there was no other room available. No accommodation las were made for myself.... More

The rooms might have been renovated but the outside still needs a lot of work. The room that I got wasn't that complete. There were no nightstand lights and I had to ask for one. Room was still quite dark. Was promised a microwave but never got it. There was a flat-screen tv but you had to reset the controls... More

At first, I was little skeptical to stay here after reading all the reviews but when i checked in I asked to see the room first and I was happy with the room. It had new laminated floor which was nice touch for this kind of hotel, had a new paint smell and best part was flat screen TV. I... More

This Econolodge was one of the worst I have used. On the positive side the location is great. You can walk most of downtown and the Riverwalk. The city is very pretty, quiet (college was out for summer) and close to interesting sites. The hotel looks good from outside. Has lovely breakfast room but very poor food. Our room was... More

“Front desk was very nice. Overall, the rooms need major upgrades. (I say rooms b/c my son and his friends reserved two rooms next door and they were the same). Mattresses needs upgrades as well. Housekeeping needs a lot or work! Area is very dark and shady. We came to see our son graduate from boot camp and was very disappointed in out stay. Will never go to an Econo Lodge again.”
