Very nice inside & outside pretty clean too you'd never know it was the same place driving by unless you grew up in Malden like me. Spent most of time at Encore so I forgot to ask date of remodel & where's the pool located? There was never room for a pool!

Recently updated rooms offer great value for the Boston area. Very helpful and friendly staff made check in easy. Breakfast is very basic but was enough to get us started on our day. Short drive to the train to Boston or a cheap Uber ride

The hotel should be closed down while in renovation.I was litterally walking over construction materials on my way up to my room. I just can not believe the hotel was allowed to operate in these conditions.The room was surprisingly clean, in contrast to the whole exterior of the hotel.The free breakfast was a continental breakfast of bagels,english muffins,orange juice and coffee. The price should be $60 a night,not $100 or anything close to that.

Starting with the price, 182,50 with taxes for a non-smoking room, stinking cigarette! The arrival was sad, the day shift receptionist never acknowledged me and my wife upon arrival, he actually did not say a word...We waited by the window until he turned to us and I had to tell him I had a reservation. He still did not greet us, just said, give me licence and credit card, voila, he then proceed and gave us a key to a non-smoking room 102. Upon entering the room, momentarily we smelled heavy cigarette odor...the hotel was full and room could not be changed, so we stayed. I went to the restroom, soap were both opened and inside the bathtub, one towel was on the floor used, the door was broken, the walls, carpet, everything VERY DIRTY, the television OPERATES ON ANALOG, you can hardly see the image. I felt so bad, as I am used to pay around 149 USD for nice hotel rooms. This place is really a terrible reputation for ECONO LODGE, I will never stay on a Econo Lodge again, regardless of reviews... DO NOT GO THERE, you better of stay away and find something else out of town.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in Malden for one night, which was one night too many. The pictures they show on their website are deceiving. Our room was a double bed, but didn’t have a desk, nor was it as spacious as it appears in the photos. The motel had the impression they rented rooms by the hour, if you know what I mean. There were sketchy individuals lingering around the front of the building when we arrived. This location is in desperate need of an overhaul and an upgrade to the lobby, the façade and the cliental. Even though there were handicapped designated parking, there was no ramp to access the lobby or the rooms.The daytime staff person was very friendly when we checked in and she was very helpful with giving directions. Our room was situated in the back of the hotel and there was a high fence surrounding the back area protecting it from the street that ran behind the hotel. The door to our room was difficult to open and didn’t seem very secure; we actually placed a chair against the door while we were inside. The room itself was clean and basic as I mentioned, not very big, but the bed very comfortable. There was a keypad safe in one corner of the room and there was a refrigerator, but it didn’t work. Unfortunately, around 3am our upstairs neighbor decided to make quite a racket; and it sounded as if she was moving furniture back and forth across the room. Between that and her screaming in her room and then out on the balcony, we didn’t get much sleep after that. When we checked out, we requested to pay with a different credit card, but the desk clerk advised us the payment was submitted the night before so we couldn’t change it. The free breakfast was more of a continental breakfast and the coffee was made in one of those machines that you put your cup under and press the button. Overall this Econo Lodge location seemed more like a transient motel instead of what they're trying to portray in their advertisements. I guess nowadays you can’t ask for much when you’re paying about $150 a night. My suggestion?... pay the extra and stay in a better location and hotel.

I was denied my stay here yesterday by an extremely extremely rude staff member at the front desk because he refused to give me a receipt for 100.00$ cash he wanted me to leave for security...I said fine but I want a receipt some kind of record since I already paid for the room and now your asking me for cash and will not let me put it on my card and he very very rudely said no and told me to walk across the street and take money from the bank I said no I have cash either use my card or give me some for of receipt and no he proceeds to call me LOCO rudely making fun of the fact that I speak Spanish...this happened at 6:44 pm IF SOMEONE HAS SOME SENSE OF CUSTOMER SERVICE THEY WILL FIRE THAT RACIST RUDE DISGUSTING INDIVIDUAL.
