    Won't stay here again

    The room wasn't cleaned. There was Only one hand towel and it was dirty. Had to fix TV myself because it did not work. Floors were dirty.

    Toilet wasn’t clean and the sheets had a few stains on them but it was an okay place to stay on our road trip, especially for the price.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The room had leftover trash in the waste basket and food on the floor. The door was hard to open and looked to have been forced open at one point.

    Upon arrival I looked at the room before putting anything in it. I found bed bugs in the room on the mattress. As i told staff they came to look and verified there were bedbugs. They apologized and agreed to cooperate with expedia to reimbursed my money. I called expedia and told them the situation. They placed me on hold to contact econolodge. The lady working at econolodge said she never recieved a phone call but I was told by the lady from Expedia that they answered and was told a manager had to approve my refund. The next day I recieved an email saying that my refund request was denied due to Econolodge policy. I couldnt imagine how any hotel policy would expect to keep money for a room I never stayed in because they have bedbugs. I do not believe that anyone should be expected to stay in a hotel with bedbugs, or they're out over $100! I was told by expedia that if i stayed they could give me a $25 credit. Sorry but a bedbug infestation isn't worth $25 to me! HORRIBLE experience all around between econolodge and expedia. NEVER AGAIN WILL I USE EXPEDIA OR ATTEMPT TO STAY IN AN ECONOLODGE.

    The rooms smelled sooo bad, linen wasnt clean, same for bed sheets and pillow covers not clean ( had yellowish tinge). The morning breakfast was okay but when i asked for boiled water they recommended i use the tap hot water which is apparently what they use for the "hot water" component of breakfast. I was hoping they know that a simple kettle an cost less than $20. Otherwise the price was very affordable in case you are looking to save and just want a bed to sleep on at night. The employees most of them were nice, and they gave me complimentary toiletries, just one employee seemed unfriendly.
