My husband and 2 kids (9 & 5) decided to stop driving for the night (heading back to Canada) and checked into the EconoLodge at 1030 Arsenal St, Watertown, NY, around 11:30 pm Saturday August 26, 2017. We received the last non-smoking room # 210, I have to say I have never been so uncomfortable in a hotel room in my life. The room was disgustingly dirty, I wouldn’t even let my kids take their shoes off (because I wasn’t going barefoot on the carpet and kept socks on in the bed), there was garbage in the drawers, food (at least that’s what I think it was) caked to the table and night table, a huge blackish stain on the sheets of one of the beds bigger than the palm of my hand and a bright fluorescent orange ear plug right on top of the night table. We called other hotels and everything was full so we had no choice but to sleep here. This was a horrible last night of our vacation, I was crying because I was letting my kids sleep somewhere where I didn’t even want to touch anything and my poor husband was comforting me saying “it’s OK just go to sleep, we’re leaving in the morning”. No sympathy at the front desk, she didn’t seem to care except for stating “I guess we’re not get a good recommendation”.
The sign pulling into the parking lot says “Our standards are high and our prices are low”, the sign is obviously wrong, because there is absolutely no standards if all of the rooms are like this. I would never stay here again and never recommend this hotel.
