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.

Fair
Passable

Pros: Amazing location, lots of entertainment in walking distance. Switching rooms was easy when the first one we were issued hadn't been cleaned yet. Breakfast was scant but decent.
Cons: Not a "nice" hotel by any standard. Rooms were just clean enough, just don't look behind doors or too closely in any nooks or crannies. Breakfast was scant but decent. Lady who checked us in had on a dirty shirt with holes in it.

Pros: very clean, perfect location to explore downtown
Cons: I was not made aware there would be a $5 parking fee (even with a booked in advance room) and a $100 deposit that had to be charged on a different card than what you used to pay for the room. The $100 was back within 3 days but not my point. I don’t care for “little” surprises when I’m out of town..

Cons: I had to pay to park in the hotel parking lot. $5.00. Never had a paid to park in the lot of any hotel or motel. Also I requested a downstairs room when I made the reservation as i am handicap and cant climb stairs but wasnt given one. i ask the front desk clerk about it and instead of trying to fix it she just bluntly pointed out there was a elevator. The elevator was in the total opposite corner of my room so I still had to walk quite far.
