Over night stay

Hotel was close to the whitewater center. Very clean. The first room we were given the air didn't work is they moved us. The second room had a chemical odor. So they upgraded us to a suite. Staff was so very nice and friendly. The hotel is older and they r doing renovations. It's a decent hotel for the price. The doors to the rooms open to the outside on the first n second floors.

Very convenient to airport, which was why I picked it. The bathroom light didn't work in first room so they put me in another upgraded room. The a/c unit was very noisy.

You get what you pay for.

Not exactly the greatest place, but it does have a pool, whether it is clean or not is the question. It is located right by the highway/airport. Cheap compared to any other hotel around. The lobby smelt like dog urine when you first walk in, but the lady that checked me in the hotel was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! I wish I had wrote down her name, she was super plesant and very up beat; helped me out with all my questions. The room wasn't the best, it was a bit run down and they didn't provide much of a comforter for you to sleep with. The AC was amazing. The bath tube had the usual used look as it was stained from constant water and the curtain was kind of gross; it had a blood stain or something on it. Breakfast was average. Like the review title says, " You get what you pay for."

Decent place to stay

The hotel was a typical experience. The rooms were somewhat dated but if you're looking for a place to stay the night on a layover this place is fine.

Single Night Passing Through

We needed an inexpensive overnight stay near Charlotte, and this hotel met our needs with flying colors. Friendly, plenty of nearby hotels, short distance to Charlotte for sight-seeing, then back on our way home.

A good solution to overnight flight stay

The Econo Lodge Inn and Suites serves the purpose of a quick night stay after a long trip. The hotel has amenities beyond my expectation of a quick-night hotel. The free breakfast and internet are always nice, and the free shuttle was convenient. I have nothing bad to say about Econo Lodge Inn and Suites. A good place for the cost.
