Don't go to the "Econolodge" expecting 5 star furnishings. This is a reasonably priced hotel in a more run down part of London. It's right across the street from the Western fairgrounds and all its going-ons. About a 7 dollar uber or 20 minute walk to downtown. I found the room clean and comfortable. A fresh coat of paint has...

Booked the room based on the recent remodel work noted. Sadly was not very good. Hair in the sink, pulled back the covers and hair on pillows and bed sheets. Ceiling was poorly patched, bath vent was falling out of ceiling... Lesson learned.

The 5 star hotel I was supposed to stay in was full so I found Econo Lodge, which turned out offer a really great four-day stay in the midst of a winter-blizzard. Suite 203 is a magnificent very quiet 2-room corner suite with great heating and a WiFi that is better than anything I have seen in the best hotels....

Another positive feature of the large, comfortable Suite 203 is its heating system (important in Canadian midwinter). The two rooms of the suite have separate heaters. Each is very powerful, especially given the sixe of the rooms, and can be turned off for quite a while after running for a short time. The London, Ontario Econo Lodge's laundry room makes...

DO NOT stay on the third floor. Hotel lobby looked decent, then we walked into our room. Our friends shared an adjoining room with us and everyone had to enter both rooms through our door because the other one was broken. Our keys had to be recharged upon almost every re-entry into the room. We weren't given TOILET PAPER or...

My first stay in London was at this place. Though I was not that happy when I walked in, the courteous Reception and the room service they offered was second to none. They have renovated the place. So, I was happy to have newer amenities. They do have laundry on site, breakfast service, vending machine for pops and chocs, and...

My family and I visited London for the first time and stayed at the econolodge due to its proximity to the downtown core. We were absolutely blown away by the service. The front staff were extremely friendly and had plenty of suggestions on what to do in London and where to eat. Will definitely stay at hotel again.

Excellent customer service from front desk staff. They were efficient and we were given a room immediately upon arrival. Room was very clean and the free breakfast and wifi were great added bonuses Hotel is very close to Western Fair and other downtown area recreation areas as well as restaurants. Highly recommend this place to other travellers!

Had two more pleasant stays at the London, Ontario Econolodge. On two weeknights outbound was upgraded to the very large two room suite directly above the front desk. Anyone wishing plenty of space, especially a family, should try to reserve this room! It is worth it, especially since the London Econolodge is already a bargain. On the way home, I...
