Econo Lodge Phoenix Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was close to the airport with nice prompt free shuttle. The room was good and got our wake up call right on time. The only negative was no one at front desk when we arrived. There were several people in lobby(maybe maids getting off?) and it was unclear to whom we should talk to. A girl came through side door after a few minutes.

Had a reservation for my last night since I had an early flight out. Hotel staff was not too friendly or helpful at checkin. Charged my CC $25 for a damage deposit and another $23 not sure why. The lobby smelled bad. The room was horribly smelly and smoky. (I did accidentally reserve a smoking room). Went back to the office to request a new room. Was told I would need to pay more and that they were out of king bed rooms. On orbitz the price for smoking or nonsmoking rooms is the same and both were still available. We left. Would NEVER go there again. (Area was pretty sketchy as well)

Hotel staff was very nice! The room on the other hand smelled like smoke and that was a definite turn off. Not to mention the room did not have a small trash can readily available. Other than that, my one nighter was comfortable.

Only stayed one night but the room was clean and comfortable.

It was not bad other than nothing around you. Close to airport. Very friendly

Didn't look like much from outside but nice rooms near airport. Shuttle service also

I can't believe people give 3.6 approval in this hotel. I do not recommend it.

The staff was courteous. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable.

Given the options near PHX in the "economy price" range, this would be a good choice. The rooms look like they have been updated in the last couple of years and they're clean. Probably more than you might expect for a room at this price.

Room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The "continental" breakfast is modest, but in line with the excellent price for the accommodation. The coffee is freshly brewed and excellent. I really like this place.

Staff was plesent, hotel was clean, bed was a little too firm for my liking.

The big plus was that the motel was close to the airport & car rental return& inexpensive. The facility was very dated. There was a free breakfast but no other food service which could only be accessed by car.

Room was very nice, and location was close to airport, but neighborhood wasn't great and random people were loitering outside

Needed a last-minute hotel near the airport. EconoLodge was comfortable, convenient, and not terribly expensive.

We stayed for a few days, because we came to see Copa America soccer game, between Uruguay against Mexico.

My stay y good, is economic hotel and the room is very nice

Accommodations are that of a cheap motel. Basics only. Pool isn't heated. Neighborhood is scuzzy. Would be worried about my vehicle, and do not even think about going for a walk in the "hood .

Staff was incredibly rude, made me very uncomfortable on check in. Room was fine, quiet and clean enough, fridge and microwave and TV all working well, nice shower head. Towels seem 20 years old, thin and gray and scratchy. Shuttle service was prompt and efficient. Neighborhood is scary dangerous.

The hotel was nice but nobody warned me that the area around the hotel is an absolute dump.

Wrong room as advertised but still nice and clean

good choice for an economy motel near phx
