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.

If it were raining or...

Pros: The A.C. worked and some amenities provided, e.g., soap, shampoo.
Cons: The t.v. was fuzzy and not very good reception. The handle to toilet was broken. I had to wait for bed cover to be provided for one of the beds. Only de-caf coffee was provided in room. The excuse by the hotel staff for poor tv reception was that those channels were unavailable and only clear channels were made available by hotel's tv subscription or something to that effect. All the channels but one were poor quality. Did I mention the toilet handle was broken?

Pros: The convenience of the hotel being right next to major highways. There is a shopping complex within a mile with restaurants and everyday stores for whatever you may need.
Cons: The breakfast was horrible. The sausage tasted like it had salt dumped on it. The sheets on one of the beds had stains on it. The toilet seat was loose and moved on you. Also the faucet on the sink leaked. These are things that would and should be addressed if housekeeping is doing its job. As loose as the toilet seat was it would be noticeable from just cleaning it. And the faucet was noticeable just from putting items on the counter.
