Decent room

Clean rooms, friendly staff. Somewhat open, so doesn't feel very secure. Only gripe was that the coffee maker in the room didn't work, and they didn't have a replacement available.

Seeing My Daughters Future Home-NCSU

The room was neat and clean. Its extra amenities such as microwave fridge and coffee pot made our stay even better than we had hoped. Access to a computer was a nice surprise too. The continental breakfast provided each day was truly enjoyable. Best hotel stay I have had at such a great rate. Thank you [...]and Econolodge. Personnel was kind and courteous as well.

A Place to rest

The hotel was clean. It was nothing fantastic but for the price it was decent. I was attending an orientation at NC State and it was near enough yet not priced like the hotels directly downtown. The staff tried to be helpful but were not great on giving directions. I wil be shopping around again soon and if the price is right at least I will know what to expect.

Great location

The Econo Lodge was very clean and located close to everything one would need. The beding was nice and comfortable. There are restaurants right across the street. The employees were nice. Just check the expiration date on the yogurt.

My review of Econo Lodge South

Check-in was very easy at the Econolodge and it was convenietly located. However, the room had a bad odor. This dissipated quite a bit when I turned on the air conditioning. This is not surprising since it was about 100 degrees during my stay. I tried to leave the air conditioning on low so I wouldn't return to an oven but the cleaning staff turned it off. Consequently, I decided to keep the do not disturb sign on so the room would be bearable.
