“Great value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

Pleasantly surprised, the room was very clean, the beds comfortable. All of the staff was great...friendly and accommodating. As noted by other reviewers the breakfast option was very limited (bagel or sweet roll) and no hair dryer (however one was available at the desk). Room came with microwave and refrigerator.

We stayed here for a night because we came to town just to swim with the manatees.
It is okay for the price. We arrived in the evening and in general the property just seemed a little dark. There was also quite a bit of traffic and motorcycle noise.
Also note that there are no alarm clocks or hair dryers in the rooms.
This was fine for a quick, cheap stay though.

We chose Econo Lodge because of the price, which is quite reasonable. The room was clean and adequate. I use a wheelchair, so I asked for an accessible room. The parking spot was a bit unusual, but OK. The room itself wasn't very roomy for a wheelchair user -- my wheelchair didn't fit between the end of the 2nd bed and the dresser, so I couldn't get it to the bathroom, and I had to hop. Wheelchair users with narrow chairs could make it, but I found that feature pretty frustrating. Oh, and by the way, the Econo Lodge website says it has breakfast, but when I checked in and asked about it, the desk clerk said it was just a danish and coffee if I wanted to stop by and pick it up in the morning.

Rooms are always clean, staff super friendly. We stay about 1x a month during season. It is an older hotel, no frills, but for the money you can do any better in the area.

I stayed at this motel while doing consulting work at the nearby power plant. The location was ideal, as I expected to start working early and get back late. Otherwise, this motel is a little far away from town.

The place is a dated, but not overly so. The rooms were pretty basic, but clean. There was some sign of mold and mildew in the bathroom, but I've come to expect this in many of the older Florida motels. The AC worked well, although I only used it at night for some relief after working all day outside.

The previously mentioned problems with wireless access do exist. I had some problems with reception, but it seemed to work better if I kept the laptop on the table instead of on the bed.

The breakfast was a spartan affair: some dishwater coffee, a few muffins or doughnuts, and some pieces of fruit.

This isn't a place to spend a week with the family, but if you're just passing through or working in the area, and don't need a lot of frills, this will do just fine.
