We stayed here for 3 nights. Parking is free as well as a basic breskfast along with wifi. There is a small pool too. The rooms are big and spacious. The decor is a bit dated, but when you walk in, the room smells fresh and is clean. The room also is cleaned daily. You can also get iron and... More

I thought the rooms were very spacious and clean. We got a great deal over the phone so decided to stay here. My kids loved the pool. Overall, it was a great stay. Would stay there again next time we pass by.

I've stayed in a few hotels in Macon before, and they are more expensive than this one. Now I know why. The room felt old and dirty. It seemed like a sketchy room out of a bad movie. When checking in I noticed the phrase "no refunds after 10 minutes" on the paperwork. That was not a good sign. The... More

I should start by saying that the staff that we spoke to were very helpful and nice, and the rooms are a good size for a budget place. And there was a lovely Northern Cardinal in the tree behind the pool area. That said, everything else was poor. Their pool had no water in it. Having stayed in a number... More

Econo Lodge should take this out of their system.This is the most disgusting room I have ever had the displeasure of staying in! We booked on line with EXPEDIA, which was also a mistake. They said newly renovated...... In 1960 perhaps! Blood on the shower curtain, bathtub floor looked like it was roller pained with house paint, the furniture ws... More

It's an old hotel, cheap but the room was okay. Nice king bed, fridge and shower. Breakfast didn't mean much. Pity that the pool wasn't clean. And it wasn't nice and cosy.
