Bare minimums

First of all there are a lot of better hotels on the same block than this hotel where the people are nicer and you are not ripped off. The first thing this hotel does is to rip you off before they give you a key they have a bogus " daily hotel fee" which does not make any sense, but if you don't let them rip you off by allowing them to instantly charge your credit card, you cannot get a refund if you cancel your registration so it is just pure bullying AND extortion.The staff at the Econo Lodge was useless, rude AND terrible, they do not care about you because they already have your money, they were so bad I had to ask for help from the Travel Lodge people even foe simple directions because they Econo Lodge people's answer to everything is I don't know.. First of all rooms are super filthy to the point where I had a pair of socks just to walk around in the room which I threw out when I checked out. If you walk around barefoot in the room when you get in the shower you can see how black the bottom of your feet are from the Filthy, dirty carpet. The towels are thread bare and not very clean. The room is no smoking but low life people smoke tight outside your door because they can. There was a small refrig in the room that did not work. I had to ask for the sheets to be changed AND they still did not do it. Recommend this place to you best enemy and stay at a nicer hotel which is at least clean.

Great hotel for the price

I don’t usually write reviews or provide feedback but here we go: I wasnt sure about Econolodge after reading some of the reviews here, I traveled with my girlfriend mainly to visit the theme parks and I have to say it was a great choice for the price. The hotel is location is pefect we walked (15 minutes) to both Universal parks and just a 7 minutes drive to Seaworld, the rooms are very confortable and quiet for a good night sleep. The bathroom was really clean and was kept that way for all 6 nights we stayed. The staff was very kind and check in/out were fast and without any issues. Overall a great experience for the price if you are looking to get a good night sleep and rest for the busy days at the theme parks. I will surely book there if I visit Orlando again.

The worst hotel

The hotel is not clean. The room service is horrible, the breakfast is the worst of all hotels that I visit. The personal not offers a good service for help the west. The transport to parks is not associated to the horari of parks and we can't use go to proncipals parks. The rooms not see as un the web pictures, is more bat. This is more similar to "motel" than a "hotel".

Clean but very small room

The hotel room was very small. It was clean. Bed was comfortable. Maid service was good. Complimentary breakfast was coffee, orange juice (not sure if it was real oj), and some tiny muffins. Nothing spectacular but it was something to eat which was appreciated. Had a small fridge but no microwave. I had to sign a waiver that said I would not cook in the room. Conveniently located and easy to walk to lots of stuff. Parking was right outside our door, which I like. Wireless access was good. Never used the pool. It was smooshed in between 2 buildings and 2 driveways so not a very relaxing atmosphere. But it was a pool and it looked clean. Overall I would stay here again if I got a good rate and was planning to be out of the hotel most of the time. I have been to Orlando since and have found 2 hotels for the same price that are both much nicer with better amenities.

Good location, cheap and clean

It was well located the attendant gave us all the needed infiormation in a professional manner even so we arrived very late the first evening. The price of the room was cheap and the room had everything we needed. The breakfast area was really too small, but this is what you get at that rate. Good hotel, you can consider staying for a few nights, close to the parks.
