The Econo Lodge has a great location if you are travelling to the north of Florida to see some attractions. Rooms are clean yet would need some renovation. The internet is not working. The reception lobby is very small and they serve breakfast there. There is no table, it is supposed to be standing breakfast or you can take it...

Wifi only works in the lobby, laundry machines are falling apart, TVs are ancients CRTs, grumpy staff and rooms not cleaned. Complained to Econo Lodge and got a response that boils down to 'we operate as franchises, so not our fault'.

This budget hotel had a nice wait staff in the lobby. We stayed here because it was basically the last place available. It was a clean room and it had a clean bed. It had the convenience of driving your car to the door and unloading. It had very little else that was a plus. It did not off for...

Stayed here 3 days....3 days to many tbh. Even price wasn't that good. NO WIFI. Do not expect any..and they do more know how to fix it. We asked them to reset router but still not done. One redeeming feature was the lovely lady behind counter...sorry cannot remember her name....long hair/loves dogs. She was great and tried to be helpful....

For a cheap price you get quite good location and just ok accommodation and even free breakfast. There is even a pool in the motel. You need a car to go anywhere from here, its a motel. Manatee snorkling tours available nearby on the opposite side of the road by the river!

Low budget but does the job, you arrive late have a sleep and leave early. It is about half of the Holiday Inn, we just spend the money on good food arriving late and had next day our. Seem to be clean, just the internet did not work! Manatee encounter! was great!

I'm going to spare the small stuff, like the no wifi and other things that were advertised that were not delivered. I evacuated my family, (wife, mother and 2 kids) and had them setup to stay Thursday-Saturday to evacuate the hurricane. Upon checkin they were met by a lady (Kathy?) running the desk who was beyond rude. She told them...

We weren't expecting anything spectacular, given our budget, but we would've expected better from a $20 motel... Here's the run down of our visit. It's lengthy, but its worth the read. We walk in to check in and it smells like cigarette smoke. Mildewy and gross. Then the lady acts like we're inconveniencing her by needing to check in. So...

Disappointingly the wifi didn't work and the breakfast had very little choice. However room was clean although quite small. I needed wifi overnight so was very frustrated when the advertised free wifi didn't work at all. If I had known this I would have booked to stay at Days Inn across the road.
