Recent guest reviews

The room was kind of little,But Very quiet and save

Rooms were out dated, dirty, noisey and had to always ask for towels. Police kicked in a rooms door about 10 rooms away and continental breakfast was instant coffee and mini muffins. Will not EVER go back!!

Felt very uncomfortable staying there. Room was dirty and door handle was loose.

This was the second time I stayed at this location. Friendly staff. The only thing that I am concern about is that they need to upgrade their breakfast menu. It's about time. Other than that, 5 stars.

Pool wasn't usable due to leaves dirty .the shower was dirty .had a dirty towel.when we asked if they had a spoon or a tea bag.they said no.but they have a breakfast .we found both in breakfast area on counter.

Older property , great location to Parks. Small rooms, great value for price . Breakfast is only coffee, orange juice, small apples and some pastry in small area next to front desk, basic place but priced accordingly. Fine for one night .

Located too close to I 4 and behind a less desireable motel so traffic noise and barfing patrons from the other motel were side effects I could have lived without. However the Econolodge was acceptable for the price. During my stay I realized there was another motel with about the same price nearer to the airport and not in the center of such chaos. It was my fault for not finding that motel for my stay.

It was a great stay. Really close and easy to get to Universal Studios.

Room was nice and close to pirate. dinner show. My only negative comment is the noisy air conditioner in my room.

Great location, attended theme parks and restaurants. Comfortable rooms.

The staff was friendly and I was promptly treated when I arrived. Very close to the parks and the room vas very clean and sanitized.

The room was surprisingly nice. In a good but very busy location. My family (10 month old, 5 year old, my husband and myself) were woken up a little bit before 4:30 am by drilling that happened by the room. I'm assuming the water didn't work because I went to clean my sons bottle but was not able to because the water was cut off. I understand things happen, but I specifically stayed in a hotel that night so I could get some rest instead of spending the whole day in Orlando and driving home (Abbott 40 minutes away) late at night. My family and I don't have a lot of extra money to spend on vacations. This is actually our first vacation as a family and we were pretty bummed that our experience wasn't more pleasant.

I stayed one night at the Econo Lodge. It was a nice stay. The room was clean, staff was helpful, and the location is great. The comfort of the bed could have been better. Overall, I would stay in this hotel again.

I was happy with the overall value of the hotel. My main complaint was that the housekeeping staff kept coming very early every morning even and proceeded to continuously knock until there was an answer, even with the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. Thy wouldn't clean my room if they couldn't do it right then, which was always before 10 am so I ended up going 4 days out of 6 without service just so I could sleep in. The location is great with a lot to do in the immediate area and is very close to all of the major theme parks, especially the Universal parks. Overall good value for the price but the Housekeeping area needs some improvement.

I stayed with my wife 2 nights just to visit wet n wild, the hotel was just good for the price, good to sleep an leave and it was clean. Personel was kind and printed my tickets for free (big issue if you do not know the city). I would recomend this hotel.

First of all there are a lot of better hotels on the same block than this hotel where the people are nicer and you are not ripped off. The first thing this hotel does is to rip you off before they give you a key they have a bogus " daily hotel fee" which does not make any sense, but if you don't let them rip you off by allowing them to instantly charge your credit card, you cannot get a refund if you cancel your registration so it is just pure bullying AND extortion.The staff at the Econo Lodge was useless, rude AND terrible, they do not care about you because they already have your money, they were so bad I had to ask for help from the Travel Lodge people even foe simple directions because they Econo Lodge people's answer to everything is I don't know.. First of all rooms are super filthy to the point where I had a pair of socks just to walk around in the room which I threw out when I checked out. If you walk around barefoot in the room when you get in the shower you can see how black the bottom of your feet are from the Filthy, dirty carpet. The towels are thread bare and not very clean. The room is no smoking but low life people smoke tight outside your door because they can. There was a small refrig in the room that did not work. I had to ask for the sheets to be changed AND they still did not do it. Recommend this place to you best enemy and stay at a nicer hotel which is at least clean.

I booked based on good reviews here, rooms are not clean, cable tv didn't work and phone didn't work to call front desk. I would not stay again and wont recommend this to any one.

I don’t usually write reviews or provide feedback but here we go: I wasnt sure about Econolodge after reading some of the reviews here, I traveled with my girlfriend mainly to visit the theme parks and I have to say it was a great choice for the price. The hotel is location is pefect we walked (15 minutes) to both Universal parks and just a 7 minutes drive to Seaworld, the rooms are very confortable and quiet for a good night sleep. The bathroom was really clean and was kept that way for all 6 nights we stayed. The staff was very kind and check in/out were fast and without any issues. Overall a great experience for the price if you are looking to get a good night sleep and rest for the busy days at the theme parks. I will surely book there if I visit Orlando again.

The hotel is not clean. The room service is horrible, the breakfast is the worst of all hotels that I visit. The personal not offers a good service for help the west. The transport to parks is not associated to the horari of parks and we can't use go to proncipals parks. The rooms not see as un the web pictures, is more bat. This is more similar to "motel" than a "hotel".

The hotel room was very small. It was clean. Bed was comfortable. Maid service was good. Complimentary breakfast was coffee, orange juice (not sure if it was real oj), and some tiny muffins. Nothing spectacular but it was something to eat which was appreciated. Had a small fridge but no microwave. I had to sign a waiver that said I would not cook in the room. Conveniently located and easy to walk to lots of stuff. Parking was right outside our door, which I like. Wireless access was good. Never used the pool. It was smooshed in between 2 buildings and 2 driveways so not a very relaxing atmosphere. But it was a pool and it looked clean. Overall I would stay here again if I got a good rate and was planning to be out of the hotel most of the time. I have been to Orlando since and have found 2 hotels for the same price that are both much nicer with better amenities.
