small very bad to much noise people smoking marijuana bad service no amenities in the room

There was ants and mosquitoes In that room I couldn't sleep

We rented the cheapest around and that is what we got. At one O'clock in the morning others were let in but we were made to stand out in the rain to check in. We were not brought clean towels the first two days. We finally had to ask. We were panhandled out side our room.

We chose the Econlodge because it was the cheapest place to stay close to the airport. You get what you pay for, and the room was a disaster with broken furniture and grimy looking appliances. The amenities were average. We couldn't get the WiFi to work on our iPad (although, to be fair, that could have been user error). We waited quite a while at the airport for our Econolodge shuttle and ended up taking a different hotel's shuttle that was nice enough to drop us at the Econolodge. The shuttle back to the airport showed up right on time and was a quick and pleasant ride. Econolodge also had a nice continental breakfast ready in the morning. Staff was very nice, especially Ms. Lisa. Overall, we knew what we were getting and were not shocked by the condition of the room, and pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the staff.

We had a wonderful time with family in East Point. Weak WiFi. Very convenient to fast food restaurants and the airport.

great for business, clean rooms,close to resturants, price is amazing, complimatry breakfast, friendly staff, close to airport, would def recommend.

If you only need to rest your head for the night this is the place. I didn't expect much given the room was like 50 bucks. Staff was friendly and accommodating we were a able to check-in a couple hours early to enjoy our last night in ATL.

the people at the front desk are very rude. Housekeeping does not knock on the door they just come in. the free breakfast is a joke. one morning cereal but no milk?? really?

Just fine for 1 night, area seemed sketchy however

Close to the airport with free shuttle that was on time and first to be dropped off. Room was clean. Great value for the price. Will stay here again.

Carpets were dirty, tv is 15 years old fuzzy and remote didnt work, heat or ac didnt work, no iron or ironing board in room

didn't stay the night, had cigrette burns on tv & counter tops, small tv with fuzzy picture- mold on showerhead- paint falling off hall ceileing- rust on fridge- small room- close to airport- real good location- due to mildew smell and poor tv stayed somewhere else- staff was nice

After two phone calls and waiting for one hour and twenty minutes, the hotel shuttle finally arrived at the airport to pick me up for transport to the hotel. The free continental breakfast consisted of frozen bagels, donuts, and croissants--all of which had to be defrosted in the microwave before one could even consider eating any of them.

I had requested a non-smoking room and got one that was obviously, previously, a smoking room. There was still the smell of smoke lingering in the room and it was a bit repulsive.

Cheap prices is the only thing that's good about it. Cigarette burn holes in everything. Poor cleaning staff. Breakfast was cereal or bagel.

I choose my hotels for the economy as I only sleep during layovers. The locations are not important to me, but the free airport shuttle and the reasonable price are. The EconoLodge on Virginia was satisfactory on both points. I did not take advantage of the pool, nor did I need any entertainment from the neighborhood so can't report. But if you are on a budget, or prefer to spend your money on other things as long a you have a good, clean bed...then this EconoLodge is a good choice.

THE PRICE WAS VERY REASONABLE AND CHEAP. NEXT TIME I'LL SPEND MORE TOO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE. THE STAFF WAS VERY VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE LOCATION WAS GREAT. I WILL SAY I WILL'NT STAY AT THE ECONO LODGE ATLANTA AGAIN.

The hotel was confortable. The hot air machine was noisy.

Upon check in there was no ice bucket or trash can or thermostsat control in the room.Also the ice machine on my floor was out of order. The next day the sheets had been removed but not replaced. after thirty minutes in the lobby trying to resolve the problem I had to move to another room. No offer was made for an upgrade or discount or apology for my inconvenience. The next morning upon checkout I asked for a discount and a receipt, but neither was given. I would not recomend this motel.

I thought I was getting value for my money instead it turned out that this place was a dump. My closet at home was bigger than the room, there were bugs on my bed and in the bathroom, the bed linen was old and torn, the lock was broken; people were noisy at all times of the night, and the building was old and outdated. It was a horrible experience. I'm sorry, but there is not one positive thing I can say about this hotel-- this is not a good value for the money. I would recommend to anyone to spend the extra twenty or thirty dollars to stay at a decent and safe place.
