Great location

We chose this hotel because it was a short drive to the beach and I'm pretty happy we picked this one. The room was nice, looked like it had been recently remodeled. The light in the bathroom had issues and was pretty dark in there, but that is the only thing I found wrong with the room. Oh yeah, also there was this high-pitched whistling noise that we kept hearing all night the first night we were there, which we never could figure out what it was to make it stop. The second night, a lady in the room above us somehow got locked in her room so at 1:00 am there were people using a drill, hammer, etc and beating on her door. I understand her dilemma, but we had to be on the road 4 hours later for a 15 hour drive so the fact that we were kept awake was annoying. I called the front desk and was just told it would be about 15 minutes longer (after this had been going on for 2 hours already). A discount or something would have been nice since we were there to sleep and couldn't. Pool and hot tub were great, breakfast was standard.

Tin Top restaurant was just a short drive and was delicious! A bit pricey, but we were on vacation so we expected to splurge on nice meals occasionally. Highly recommend!

A Lot More Value Than "Econo" Might Suggest

An excellent 4-night experience overall! Right on main thoroughfare, across street from Tanger Outlet Mall (exceptional!!), and, while convenient to the beaches, far enough away to allow escape from "Beach Madness." Staff uniformly professional, friendly, and eager-to-please. Good hot breakfast options, nice outdoor pool and lounging area. Parking area *very* well-lighted. Restaurants galore nearby, some within walking distance. Only minor glitch: Their single elevator was inoperative for about 24 hours, but was fixed about as fast as humanly possible. With only 3 floors (we were on 3), this was only a temporary annoyance, since it was working when we checked out.

Great Experience! Great Location! Great Price!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Econo Lodge. The service was great. The rooms were clean and the price was fair. I plan to stay there again. The rooms were totally redone.

Not recommended for most...

Selected based on pets welcome and location. Accommodations for pets were adequate. The location is awesome! The hotel staff had mostly flat personalities and the hotel rooms and furnishings seem old / outdated / drab.

great price-room just fine

Price was great and location too. Absolutely not one complaint about the room. Lobby very homey, and very good continental breakfast...eggs, biscuit/gravey, bagel, cereal, sausage, waffle batter, juices...super!

Great for the money

I usually stay in higher rated hotels but I was traveling last minute for an interview and was trying to save some money. I was not disappointed with this place. They allowed me to check in a few hours early (I had to take a really early flight to get there) which was very appreciated. They have free wi fi which has the fastest download speeds of any hotel I've stayed at (8 Mbps compared to usually 300 kilobytes/second at most others I've been at). This made it much easier to FaceTime with my family. The rooms were satisfactory. There was nothing special but the beds were comfortable and I slept great. I would have liked a few more conveniently located outlets to plug in my various electronics but that wasn't a big deal. The pool was pleasant and I loved the hot tub. Unfortunately a storm came through so I only got to enjoy it for a few minutes before the lighting got close. The free breakfast was nice. It was slightly limited but on par with the price. They had several cereals, make your own pancakes, juices, and fruit. I can't remember if there was anything else that was hot. If you are with your family this seems great. It is about 20 minutes from the beach straight down 59.

HangOut Music Fest...

Needed a place to stay while going to the annual HANGOUT Music Festival and the Econo Lodge Inn was absolutely perfect including the great price, a really sweet swimming pool that is hidden away for privacy and is relatively close proximity to the beaches and music festival. At the last minute, I needed some new comfy sandals to wear on the beach and directly across the street is the outlet mall with a particular store with great outdoor and sports wear. And next door is a 24hr WaffleHouse for a late night waffle at 3am.
