We booked what seemed like an affordable hotel for families. Typically, we stay at Marriotts but since we wanted to spend more on activities, we opted for this place. We drove 6 hours and checked in at 6 to find dirty sheets, very few skimpy towels, crumbs in the beds, a few bugs crawling behind the bed, a poorly patched...

For the price we paid it was ok..room furniture needs updating bad (the bed was great). But then again I'm sure this place is a hit for spring breakers. When we first arrived there were bear bottles in the parking lot & broken glass on the steps up to the rooms. Had issues both days with getting clean towels.. our...

I booked this Econo Lodge in February, the price was a major reason I booked. The hotel staff never cleaned my room for 4 days stay. The hotel was to give me a wake up call, I even set my room alarm. Well no one called, power went out the evening before a chartered fishing trip. I missed my fishing...

The location could not be better--mid island near everything. People were extra friendly and helpful. Somehow my reservation showed two rooms instead of one, and the manager cleared it up quickly. Room was clean, comfortable, and cool; a little scuffed around the edges, but very good. Value was outstanding! This was week before Memorial Day, and price was very good....

Spent a weekend with family where I was charged twice for a room. Contacted hotel and was put on hold for a long time before being hanged up on. Manager failed to cancel double charge as promised and failed to call me back on status. Attempted to contact him with no success. Watch your money! Pay cash or go somewhere...

My husband and I stayed here and it was very relaxing. The hotel had just changed out all the mattresses with brand new ones so the bed was awesome, a very good sleep. The location is pretty much right in the middle of the island so we either walked or took a taxi. The taxi's from one end of the...

After a long drive from Arkansas, we were just ready to relax before our vacation started. Econo Lodge was our first choice and turned out to be the best choice. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful and professional. The room was very clean, smelled great, and the decor was nice. I would recommend this place.
