I was very impressed! The staff did an excellant job. Clean and confort, I demand! Onr tiny thing, the food was ok. But very generic, ya know. Bland!!

We booked at the last minute due to price...booked online and it was a mistake. Our room had a whirlpool tub and was told at the front desk it didn't work and couldn't adjust the price due to paying online prior. The room was very dirty and dusty and the sheets had not been cleaned.I had 2 small children and couldn't leave due to availability and permissive weather. Please don't waste your money and spend the extra for a good nights sleep and peace of mind!

My boyfriend and I frequently get out of town and go somewhere to stay the night. We stay at the Econolodge often, it is not the cleanest however. We even had someone from the staff tell us during our last stay that she wouldn't let her dog sleep there. It has made us iffy about wanting to stay again for the sake of cleanliness.

Very clean. comfortable beds. Nice to have micro frig in rooms.

after we checked in,, the shower head in the bathroom was broken and the microwave. I called management and they gave us another room with upgrades. we were very pleased with management and the new room

Would not recommed. looks dirty upon arrival. Rooms not clean. dirty walls. Cigarette holes in comforter. Needs remodeling. Sub standard TV and amenities. I would have to say that a hotel, as does anything else, gets one chance to make a first impession. It did. And the first impression reigned true. I was truly disappointed and I do believe that I certainly overpaid for what I got. Based on my experience here, I will truly reconsider about using your service again.

The bathroom door would not close or lock. The showerhead broke and sprayed the entire bathroom with water. The bathtub drain plug didn't work. So, no privacy, no shower and no bath. They refunded the entire price because of all the problems.

Staff was super nice. Hotel was very comfortable and breakfast is included

Staff very friendly, room.....bed sheets were dirty and spotted. bed was broken down, ripped on the ends of the mattress and bowed in the middle. I pulled out the night stand to plug my phone in and it was very dusty and dirty behind it. I would not recommend this hotel.

The motel is clean and in good condition. The staff are, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone doing business in Havelock.

The room was very nice. It was clean and definitely a non-smoking room. The only thing I didn't like was they didn't have an elevator. We were on the 2nd floor and after attending a wedding with an open bar, it was a little difficult for my husband to get me up the stairs. otherwise, it was a very nice place to stay and I would stay there again. The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay.

Well, the hotel seemed fine from the outside, nice parking lot and everything, lobby ok too...comfortable with seating while you wait for the 2:00pm check in. What surprised me was that the hotel had no elevator which I wish would have been specified. My husband is disabled and it is VERY difficult to walk up and down stairs, as a result he only came down from the room 2 times...once to go out to eat and when we left. He did not participate in any activities because he didnt want to have to go up and down the stairs. The room itself could have more pleasant, for example one of the beds had a burn in the bedspread and the breakfast was pretty poor when ended up going to Bojangles, which, thank goodness was next door. The people however are very friendly and as helpful as they can be.

The room layout was fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed 8 nights and they came everyday to exchange towels and make the beds or change the sheets and make the beds. Only two things were disappointing..the room had not been vacuumed well, found a toy car under the edge of the bed and some plastic pieces from another toy. The pool was enjoyable other than being cloudy all week but the last day of our stay.

We needed a night stay, and honestly I would have rathered staying in my car. The rooms were nasty, hair still in bathroom, beds were so gross and not very clean. The toilet got cloged, and when we called the front desk, we were told there was a plunger at the desk we could use. No maintenance guy??? So, overall, I'd highly suggest NOT staying here.

Ok as a "cheap" hotel. But when I arrived, although I'd "paid" through Orbitz, I provided my visa card. Lady at desk said it should be MasterCard. That went around a bit, before I told her that I'd paid via Orbitz via visa, so she assumed that the number confusion was due to that. Then the next morning, they requested my visa card again, and said I had to sign their charge for the room (which BY THE WAY was $23 LESS than the Orbitz quoted rate). Now, I'm worried about two things: Will I be charged TWICE? and if the room was really $99/night TOTAL, why did the Guaranteed Price from Orbitz say it was $123? The motel, itself, was probably overpriced at $99, in my opinion. We realized this wasn't a luxury hotel, but we needed the reasonably priced room and rooms were difficult to find near the beach on Saturday night.
