About Econo Lodge By Choice Hotels Brand Hotels

Before Super 8, there was Econo Lodge. Based in the United State and Canada, this economy motel chain brand is the second largest brand under the Choice Hotels group. Created to provide the finest accommodations under the budget-friendly category by Vernon Myers and his son Vernon Jr, Econo Travel now Econo Lodge materialized with funding and marketing help from Lloyd Tarbutton, a local businessman.

Interestingly, business started with Sandy Econo, the hotel’s “mascot” dressed in a Scottish skirt and tam walking around the neighborhood giving away brochures. However, the hotel chain was sold in 1983 for $836 million, all 306 hotels and adapted the name Econo Lodge instead of Econo Travel. The brand was sold and bought several times before Paul Wallace bought the brand and refurbished it and eventually sold it to Choice Hotels International in 1990.

Eventually, this hotel concept located in 865 Military Highway grew from one location to 800 hotels under the Econo Lodge brand today. Initially, there were 40 rooms in each property located near highways and roads. Expansion continues and by 2013, there were around 830 Econo Lodge hotels open and operating in the United States with 28 more under development. Every state in the U.S. and the Canadian province has an Econo Lodge in it.

Very Poor
Please do not stay here..this is by far the worst place I have EVER stayed. Felt like I was in a third world country! It was nasty outside and nasty inside, the bath tub had been patched so that you wouldn't fall through! The ceiling in the bathroom was patched poorly... You had to unplug the microwave to plug in the refrigerator... The pub next door jammed out till 2 am and you could here people outside of our room all night long into the early morning hours!!! We stayed here because of the price, never again will I make a choice based on cost alone..

Pros: Nothing this hotel was HORRIBLE!!!
Cons: I liked nothing about this hotel!

This hotel is well past its prime. The outside is run-down and littered. It is located next to a loud bar and the neighborhood is questionable, at best. It appears to cater to folks down on their luck rather than travelers.

Pros: The desk person was very friendly.
Cons: This hotel is not clean and is poorly maintained.
