honestly the room stunk and the bullet proof windows on the office downstairs would make any european feel like use really is a penal colony: it's time to accept that use has a bad rep, and act upon improving the rep of use in the world at large. hello: it's 2013: you can't fool the entire world: basic problems alike gun violence, domestic violence, […] bad public transportation, bad manners and unfairly priced universities don't make us americans look good. i was born in use, and it's a shame we have such a bad rep. and it's because of places like this!

Great place to visit!!!!! I highly recommend this hotel!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Keep your valuables with you!!!!!!"
Well to begin...We got to the hotel early, and they where nice enough to let us have the room...I believe this may have something to do with the two truckers who broke down and did not want the room because it only had one bed...lucky or not hmmmmmmmmm? After going to Salem We came back to sleep in the room, only to discover that we where locked out...I […] went to the front desk to find out why, and the young man who was on duty gladly offered to re-key may card without even asking for a name or ID...(kind of makes yah wonder) I asked this young man if he wanted to see my ID and he said NO ...the bed was hard and you can hear everything above you...like the couple having sex above us...finally went to sleep and woke up in the morning...when taking a shower discovered that the water did not drain from the tub...oh and the tv sucked skipped and lagged all morning...after I explained what had happened to who i guess was the manager upon check out..all he could say was sorry...Wow Just Wow... I guess the best part is discovering today that my Ipod nano, cds and Apple Express vanished...I did not think about them until today...I wonder who could have taken them...I will let you decide...all I can say is that they where in my bag, that I left in the hotel room...So where oh where could they have gone?

"Poor customer service; ok hotel room"
The night desk clerk provided the rudest customer service I have ever seen at a hotel (and I travel a lot). He did not bother to answer the phone when I called from the airport, and when we got there I found out why - he was 100% focused on a personal phone call and had no interest in being bothered with customers. He stayed chatting on his cellphone […] the entire time he was checking us in - no eye contact, minimal verbal communication - he just tossed the keys over his shoulder at us and was clearly annoyed at having to take the time to provide directions to our room. NOT a comforting welcome to a small hotel late at night. Other than that, the hotel is pretty basic, a bit scruffy, and a bit noisy (it was a major party night), but not uncomfortable; and the day clerk was actually quite helpful when we needed a taxi at 4AM.

"What a Dump"
What a dump! This akin to a prostitute and drug dealer flop house, the place stinks (literally) the place is dirty. The most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at, if it weren't for circumstances, I would have left and stayed elsewhere. Stinned that Econolodge would associate there name with such a dumphole!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here if you can help it."
This was a very disappointing stay. The staff was rude. The toilet backed up and I was given a plunger.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to the airport"
Air conditioner / heater didn't work. Lots of street noise. Nothing special for us just a place to spend the night before going to the airportGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the money"
This hotel is not a pricy hotel but it's still not worth the money. Hearing other guest fighting outside till all hours of the morning is not a peaceful stay at a hotel. The people working their do nothing about their guests who can't controll their volume. They also treat their guests at check in and out like their unconvinced to help them. Very poor […] service from staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last resort hotel"
Overpriced last port in a storm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yikes! Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Wow, what can I say...dreadful comes to mind. Dark, dreary neighborhood...burglar bars on the windows. Front desk was behind Plexiglas for protection. Needed to enter through the main entrance because the rest of the hotel is security fenced in. The room is dated , musty and has years of cigarette smoke infused into everything. The Entire property smells […] of old and "fresh" cigarette smoke. I would not recommend anyone to stay there...I certainly wish I hadn't. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap is what we paid for and got!"
Sadly we only stayed here as it was the ONLY cost effective way to stay one night in the Boston area to get our plane earl the next morning! The woman who checked us in was RUDE!!!!! She snapped at me and I had to snap back at her! The room was supposed to be NON-smoking and it WAS NOT... and they could NOT put us in a new room as they were full. The […] TV worked only when it wanted to, the air conditioner had black mold on the vents and the room felt like a hooker had just been there! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a bad stay"
Not bad for the money. Although the television did not work and the room was not very clean, but then you get what you pay. Close to Boston downtown (about a 10-15min drive depending on traffic)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bathroom not easily accessed"
The bathroom counter sticks out so there's less than 1 foot clearance between the door and the bathroom. You literally have to turn sideways to get into the bathroom!Genuine Expedia guest review
This was one of our worst stays anywhere ever.Last minute booking because every where else was full. Smoking room- might as well have had the room on fire. Cigarette butts on the metal staircase- to curtains in shreds on the windows, A/C did not work, TV didn't work on and on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was smelly as if it had experienced flooding! There were obvious drug addicts visiting. Room was tiny, painted fire engine red; tv and sir conditioner were not working properly. Free breakfast was white bread and stale donuts.Genuine Expedia guest review

"When you have no other choice"

we as a large family stayed several dat 6 yrd ago. we had a family wedding and it was great friendly and clean, this time, it was terrible, overbooked, dont know why as we will never stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a late check-in 12pm and I had to wait several minutes before being checked-in. The room smelled of smoke and we requested a non smoking room,the air-conditioner was mounted on the wall near the ceiling and it dripped all night into plastic trash cans.It was noisy and the outside lighting lit-up the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"you get what you pay for."
the room didn't smell fresh . The ac was a warm cool at best. 4 of us in the room it just never got cool, how ever if you want to sleep in the lobby next to the managers desk , you could make ice cubes.( Why is that.) , Being a larger man the bathroom was just manageable , but a good shower. for get about using the toilet ,other then a cramped attempt […] at best. . would i go back, No . and next time i'll spend the extra dollars to get a higher standard of accommodations. Oh the continental breakfast , hard dougnuts if the college kids left any, no real milk for coffee, and the coffee could not have been any blander... I'm not a complainer , but I will not be cheap again. You get what you pay for... And the fan in the bathroom ceiling made such a racket you would have a headeak after 5 minutes.. These are facts for room 138. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for a low price."
I stayed one night, and for the price, I couldn't be any happier with this hotel. All I needed was a cheap room that was clean and comfortable, and this was it. I would certainly stay here again. Breakfast was a bit of a let down, but it is free, and I can't really scoff at free food.Genuine Expedia guest review
Would not recommend this hotel to ANYONE!!!!! Filthy!!! Carpets are dirty, bathrooms are dirty, wouldn't have been surprised to see bugs!! Bullet proof glass on reception area, etc.!! Stay away from this venue! YUCK!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I arrived with a guy smoking pot outside my door like it was a cigarette. Burn holes all over the bed and comforter with the bathroom sink being held up by a board. The place was scary and disgusting.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were looking for economy and ex[ected no more than we had for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Me and 2 friends got to the hotel a little after check-in, but our room wasn't ready at all. The clerk at the front desk (don't know his name) was so accomodating! He set chairs up for us girls to sit out in the sun and was asking if he can do anything else while we waited for our room. I wish I knew his name, but all three of us were saying how pleasant […] and friendly he was. Thanks!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Total Disgrace to the Motel Chain, Disgusting Room"
I think the board of health needs to go there and make sure things are up to code, my first night there was horrible, the door looked like it had been kicked in, wood puddy filed the cracks in the door, the door had no lock other than the door handle lock, no hot water, toilet not bolted to the floor, the room was a mess, chairs in room stained nasty, […] dresser draws broken, head board on wall just hanging there barely but 2 screws, I have pictures to prove everything I have stated, Motel Manager could do nothing for me, I had to go to another Motel.

"dingy, smelly, and dark"
The first room I was given smeled bad - sor tof like a combination of stale cigarette smoke and some deodorizer, so I asked for another, which I was given. The second room smelled the same, way, but not quite as much so I didn't go back to the desk again. But it had no windows! no sunlight! Multiple dents on the door and fixtures, rather badly maintained. […] I have stayed in cheaper hotels that were much better than this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I will not recommend this hotel. They don't knoz how to receive people, they copy debit card and things like that. I asked for a non-smoking room but my room was smelling. The only good point was the rapidity of internet.Genuine Expedia guest review

Close to the city. Clean room. Good neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel/room was okay for a nite. however, hotel.com was misleading in description and distance from boston's omni parker hotel. the $$ of the cab ride from airport to hotel was more than the cab ride from the hotel to the omni parker hotel the next day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Econo Lodge in Malden MA"
I had to find a place to stay overnight in Boston, and this seemed like like the only place which was close enough and accessible without being very expensive. I read all the reviews and wasn't hoping for much, but I was proved wrong. I checked into it in the evening, and the manager was very prompt and polite. The room was clean, and the TV and heater […] worked properly. Bed was comfortable. I was satisfied. The only thing to consider is transportation. There is a bus stop near the hotel which takes you to the Malden Center Orange line station, but look up the bus schedule ahead to avoid waiting for a long time. Overall, good place to stay for a short time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Never been to a hotel where the front desk is behind bulletproof glass before - and don't plan to go again. Located far away from everything, the walls are paper thin, so you can be part of your neighbor's activities.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel convienent for the bus line and train connection...Housekeeping staff did a really great job! Room noisy due to smokers standing outside of room due to smoking requirements for hotel...very noisy, loud talkers...hotel management should have been on top of this...continentel breakfast...don't bother...would recommend hotel for the priceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not Great/Not Bad"
The Econo Lodge in Malden is an older building, and the age shows, but the proprietors obviously do the best they can with it. Despite the obvious age and some minor scratches/dents/chipped paint, the place was very clean. The water was hot whenever I needed hot water. I found an excellent Brazilian restaurant in nearby Everett on the route I had to […] take between the room and Cambridge, which was nice. There was also gas and shopping on the same route, adding more convenience. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and a valuables safe right in the room. Malden is only five miles outside of Cambridge, but that five miles was a drive of almost 40 minutes, and it was easy to miss vital turns on the local roundabouts. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The wi-fi was adequate, but it would have been nice if they'd had a placard telling me how to connect so I didn't have to walk back up to the front office to find out. Be sure to ask for extra pillows, as the ones provided are so thin and lacking any sort of cushioning that even stacking two of them together will leave you unsatisfied. The 'continental breakfast' was your choice of toast with butter and jelly, so don't expect anything fancy in the morning unless you're dining out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
awful neighborhood, shavings in the sink, bullet proof glass at front desk, undesirable people through out. Dirty carpet and a non smoking room that smelled like smoke. NEVER would ever consider staying here again, even if it were freeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"econolodge malden ma"
disappointed staff didn't follow through on wakeup call, getting taxi as promised for our departure to airport. we missed flight mostly because taxi arrived 25 min after time promised and we had to repeatedly request guest services to call and check even though he wasn't busy at all so early in the morning. taxi driver was very unconcerned about our […] time problem. claimed he didn't have change for payment to obtain a tip. eventually "found" the change I needed. No tip!!! Waiting at Logan airport/Boston from 7am to 6:10pm wasn't what we'd planned. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Econo Lodge - Malden, MA"
This hotel sort of looks like Nic Cage might go there to die. The girl who checked us in was way more interested in her telenovella, while the guy who checked us out wouldn't interrupt his phone call to talk to us. The free breakfast was a stale donut and watery juice. The bathroom door didn't close, the hot/cold taps were reversed, and the hallway […] would make Stephen King blanche. Good times! It was super-cheap. And it shows. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
