Somewhere to sleep.

I stayed for a week at this hotel, and knowing a bit about the area it was located in, I didn't have high expectations. The neighborhood is sort of "run down" and the guests are noisy. My first time staying at this hotel the carpet in my room felt more like it had been waxed than vacuumed, the toilet seat was on its last leg and the wireless internet signal was garbage. My second time was an improvement on the aforementioned issues aside from the usual guest drama that sometimes goes late into the night and the entire Norfolk Fire Department/EMT parade showing up to assist a guest at the hotel. For the money, if you need someplace to sleep or are in town for business on a budget, then this place will do. Definitely not the place for children! Don't come here expecting the vacation of a lifetime and you won't be entirely disappointed.

You Get What You Pay For

The room was inexpensive, however I would definitely still expect my room phone to work instead of me having to use my cell phone. The on-call maintenence guy brought 2 replacement devices that he had to troubleshoot before I had a working room telephony device which by far is unacceptable.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

Other than the staff being pretty nice and the check in check out process being super easy, there are no good comments on this hotel. It was in a horrible location with sketchy people walking around all hours of the night. The room was dirty especially the bath tub which looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. There was a hole in the wall next to the bed and the room needed major repairs. "High-Speed" internet connection was awful. Disgusting hotel, awful location, felt extremely unsafe.

Econo Lodge, Norflok, VA

We stayed couple of times in Econo lodge chain hotels in different locations earlier and those weren't bad, did meet our expectation. This one is not good at all. Location is ok. The shabby old building, room looks dirty, cockroaches are moving on the wall, no separate closet, bathroom door lock was broken, no hot water on the shower. We didn't feel like staying in this hotel but at that moment we didn't have any other choice. In short, we were not happy with this stay in this Econo lodge. Next time we would think thrice about staying in Econo lodge before we book.

Don't go

We pulled into the parking lot and observed people walking about and sitting in front of rooms. Some drinking alcohol. As we went to consider check in, a beer can fell from the upper level and exploded. The outside was not clean and housekeeping had a cart out that looked like it had not been moved that day.
