Let me start with the positives: it's a good location, halfway between Philly and halfway to the beach. If you don't mind driving an hour to either of those places, this is good. You are also right near the Atlantic City Expressway. The rooms are spacious, too. And the bed was comfy. So those are the pluses, if you can get past the bad..... The bad: it's not that clean. First off, there are piles of garbage right near the stairs. I would hate to be the person in the room right next to the garbage. It was there for three days. It was overflowing. There was a half eaten corn on the cob on the steps. It was just gross. Plus, it was hot and there were bugs. You can't have that piling up in the middle of summer. Second, we legit walked by an empty room that had the curtains open and just inside the room in front of the window for all to see was a bottle of bed bug and flea remover. That is something you NEVER want to see when you are at a hotel. I don't even care if the hotel doesn't have bed bugs or fleas, at least hide the bed bug spray. Once i saw that, I about freaked out. I started googling this place, and a few reviewers said there were bed bugs. At that point, I just wanted to leave. Third, found bugs in the bathroom. Don't know what they were, but they looked like tiny roaches or beetles. They weren't bed bugs, though. Fourth, there were some interesting folks hanging out past midnight. I also got the impression that the hotel had some long term guests as evidenced by the extra furniture and accessories in some of the rooms that you could see through the open doors and windows, such as patio chairs and candles. Honestly, I usually don't leave bad reviews, but I was hella uncomfortable here. I didn't bring my concerns to the management since we only slept a few hours each day here, but I would just avoid this place if you can.
We stayed here with a group of friends for New years Weekend as we were going back and forth to Absecon and Atlantic City (30 min drive). Reservations online and check in was painless but the first room assigned to us had a strong smell of mold and water damage to the window area. We asked to be moved and that was not an issue. Second room was fine and relatively clean but one of our friends were given our first moldy room when he checked in later. He also opted for a different room without issue. Parking lot had plenty of space and we did not avail ourselves of the free continental breakfast served so we cannot comment. Door locks and heating/AC units could stand being replaced and cleaned bu they did work well. If you need a Budget motel for a reasonable price, this will work but do not expect a Hampton Inn or Comfort Suites. This is an old worn down motel that is a reasonably decent stay when in the area.
Was welcomed by a nice lady at the reception desk and a great smelling Lobby. It smelled like Christmas! Got a room on the first floor with parking right out front. Room was spacious and clean. Included a king size bed, desk, couch and refrigerator. Not fancy but was good for the price. There's an outdoor pool for the summer and a 20 minute drive to AC.
I new it wouldn't be fancy. I stayed for a soccer tournament and it is close to the turf farm. It is so not with it to stay here. It is dirty, smells like smoke, has mold in the rooms, was filled with decrepit furniture, and both the heating/cooling unit and the deadbolt were hanging off the wall/door. I had tp slide a chair in front of the door. Windows were cracked. No elevator which is fine unless you have to hop a suitcase up slippery stairs in the pouring rain. Housekeeping did nothing except toss a bar of soap on the sink. Breakfast was a murky cup of coffee and well, we abandoned that for DD up the block. You could not pay me to stay there again.
Pros: clean good size room, basic breakfast included, Cons: room had broken dead bolt, breakfast does not include any protein items except milk, all cereals were sweet. Price was higher then for basic.
We found this motel after leaving a scary down a few miles down the road. We were relieved to find a comfortable and affordable option despite it being a very busy week for the area. The PATCO station was still easy to get so we didn't have to change our plans at all. I would stay again and recommend it to others. No frills, a bit dated but safe, clean, decent AC, pool was nice.
First of all, please understand and compare the hotel with its peers, this is not a luxury or even moderate hotel. We stayed at this hotel due to its location, close to Tuckahoe Farms (soccer tournament) and we stayed there all together with the team. Small rooms, old and needs new furniture. Had those old TVs with the tubes, good selection of TV channels. AC is loud but works good, the room was cold. Could not sit on the couch, because it was dirty. In the morning no hot water, I guess since the entire hotel was full it was all gone. Around noon time got the hot water back. Small but good pool. Did not eat breakfast but they offer one Location is great and very close to various restaurants/fast food/shopping etc... The lady at the front desk was great, very hepful.
We stayed at the Econolodge for a week and had a great time. The room was always kept clean, the pool was very well maintained, breakfast area was well stocked and the staff was awesome!! If there was anything we needed they went out of their way to try to provide it. Very family friendly place to stay. It's definitely worth every penny and hands down the best hotel in the area!
Very basic, run down hotel, ok for only one night -- nice pool however. Staff was ok. Beds and pillows were adequate. Would stay again for a night if I had to, especially with kids given the pool. Pool was clean. Breakfast room was ok. Hotel needs a bit of a makeover. Free wifi.
Checkout was 12pm. At 8:00 am I told guy at front desk my room number, that my kids had a soccer game at 9:30am that was around the corner, and that we would be coming back to the room around 11 am and we would check out at 12. When I came back to the property & walked past my room, I saw kids jumping on my bed!! Although I never checked out, they cleaned the room, threw away my food in the fridge, along with a few items I had in the room, and checked new people into my room.
