Free breakfast was not worth having and should be eliminated.

The bed was too hard for my wife, but fine for me. Clean overall. Location was good, near shopping and highway. Lady at the desk was very nice and helpful. AC was a little noisy but plenty cool. It is what it is -- Econo Lodge. I got a good nights rest and a shower. I don't need a sauna and fine art on the walls.

I recently stayed at the Econo Lodge in Washington, NC. I was visiting my brother for the weekend and was traveling with pets. This place was labeled a pet friendly hotel, which it was. Their pet policy on the website states 10.00 USD per night as their pet fee, did not mention how many pets, what the weight limit was nor whether this was a per pet fee. It stated 10.00 USD per day (and if you look on the hotel's website right now that is what you will see). Being that I am a responsible pet owner I contacted the hotel before even making my reservation to verify their pet policy. Cathy is who I spoke to and she stated the pet fee was 15.00 dollars per night (a blanket fee) and it did not matter how many pets I brought as long as I paid the pet fee. Even though there was a discrepancy from the fee stated on the website and what she told me over the phone 15.00 per night was not a big deal and I proceeded to book my reservation. When I arrived at the hotel for check in I noticed the sign in the lobby about pets and their fees. It stated just as Cathy told me over the phone the pet fee was 15.00 per night. No mention anywhere that it was a per pet fee. I paid the room fee and the pet fee she charged of 30.00 (staying 2 nights at 15.00 per night). I was given a credit card receipt reflecting the total charge for my stay, which I signed for. Come Wednesday after my weekend trip, I check my credit card account and to my surprise there was a charge made to my account (that Saturday of my stay) for 60.00. I called the hotel to investigate this charge and was told by Cathy that the manager ran my card number because I owed more of a pet fee than I was originally charged. I should mention also that on check out the manager Mike was there, steps from behind the desk to point at the pet sign and says, "you had a pet, you need to pay the fee." I explained to Mike that I already paid the fee on check in and would gladly show him the credit card receipt that reflected this charge. This manager took it upon himself to charge my credit card 60.00 without my knowledge, without my consent, and without my signature on a credit card transaction slip. When I called the hotel to ask Mike about this charge he stated that he would absolutely not return the full 60.00, that he would only refund 30.00 because we had two pets and their pet policy states its 15.00 PER PET per night. Again, no where on the website states per pet, nor on their hotel sign, nor told by their employees. This manager fraudulently charged my card and stole money from me and refused to return the amount he stole. And by the way, we have yet to see the 30.00 refund Mike did say he was going to give us. PLEASE BEWARE OF THEIR SHADY TACTICS WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD!
Also to mention, if you are looking for quality accommodations, steer away from this hotel. We were first given a room where there were already tenants occupying the room, went back for a second room and got put beside a room where people had pulled chairs out on the walkway and were drinking and very disturbing, and finally our third room, we had to go out and buy sheets and a comforter for the bed because we were so leery about sleeping on the sheets provided being that we found blood stains on the mattress. For the most part, the staff was nice, housekeeping was accommodating, but the general manager was NOT. There are much nicer accommodations in the area, check those out before booking here!
Stayed here one night en route to Outer Banks. Traveling with dog so limited choices. Room was clean and quiet. Price was great, and minimum pet fee made this an easy choice for one night. Evening attendant very helpful and accommodating. For those traveling on budget or with pet, this is a good place to stay.
Yes the place is old and could use some updating, but I have been staying the Econo-Lodge each time I come to Washington because they are dog friendly, you cannot beat the price and they, Cat at the front desk and Mike the manager, really want you to enjoy your time here. I have been here at least 10 times in the past two years. They promptly bring you extra towel and pillows and want you to be happy. On my last visit I had difficulty with the room smelling of smoke and told Mike. He not only listened to me, he fixed the problem by changing some of their policies. When I came back again this visit (writing this review from my room) everything is so much better, smell wise, a bit updated and cleaner too. Thanks Mike and Cat for keeping me a customer.
After reading some of the reviews I had to write a review of my own. The econo-lodge is a older hotel and can use some updates but for the price you can not complain. The lady at the front desk, I think her name is Cat, was one of the most friendly people I have ever met and was extremely helpful. I have stayed in other hotels, motels and inns, and have never been treated so nice ever. The econo may not have a lot to offer but I'd take great customer service over a nicer hotel with a not so friendly staff. I will def be staying here again in the future during my next drive through. Thank you Cat for all your hard work and help. My husband and I truly appreciated all you did for us including recommending some good food. We loved Boss Hogs!!!
We booked the king "suite with kitchen". It is a room with king bed. There was a full sized stove stuck where the clothes rack usually is. No pots, pans, dishes, glasses etc, simply a stove stuck in a regular room. So how they advertise a "kitchen" eludes me. Had we planned on an extended stay & really needed a kitchen we would not have stayed even one night.
The bed was fairly comfortable. The room could use a thorough cleaning, stains on sofa & desk chair. I sprayed the whole room with Lysol. This is an old, run down place. We stayed only because it is pet friendly but it was almost too bad for my dog. The man in the parking lot hooping & hollering at 1AM a little bothersome but it only lasted about 10 minutes.
The "breakfast" was coffee & packaged sad looking breakfast rolls. The front desk staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, very nice lady at check in. The morning guy came out to pour coffee into the carafe in his pajamas. A little disturbing, although it could be interpreted as "friendly".
I recently stayed at this hotel on my way to the beach. There were other hotels but buy far this hotel has the best value for the rate. The rooms looked like they were just remodeled. The beds, furniture, bathroom was extraordinarily clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel in Washington NC.
Did I say reasonable? It is but you will want to eat breakfast somewhere else. But you can save $40 by doing that. The room was clean and near Boss Hogs Backyard, my first esperience with East Carolina BBQ. For that it was worth the money. Be careful leaving the parking lot-it is a bit tricky.
It was a last minute decision to spend the night in Washington and the first place we tried was full. We went down the road to this motel, and frankly, when I checked in and saw the price of $57, I was a bit apprehensive. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower/bathroom was good. Also, the A/C was good. Overall, I was glad we decided to stay here.
Passing through on the way to the beach, we found this Econo-lodge to be decently priced, clean, cable, wifi, helpful front desk clerk, and fresh coffee in the morning. It was clean in the lobby parking lot was clean, (some places I've been had fast food garbage and cigarette butts everywhere). The location was great as far as food and local shopping areas. department stores and food across the street and even as close as next door. washer and dryer on the property as well. Everything we needed was close and convenient. I would stay here again. We had looked at some of the other hotels in the area, there were some cheaper ones but they were awful, looked like something from "the hills have eyes" motels, lol blinky lights going out and bug killers dangling around, cheaper but not where i wanted to stay, there were some hotels of better condition but the cost was way more and it wasn't that much better that i was willing to pay an extra 20 bucks for. Rooms had refrigerators and microwaves. I have to say all in all it wasnt the best of the best, but its the best for the price and helped me save money in the long run. would definitely stay here again.
Help was dressed like a farm worker, looked as though she had not had a bath id days, did not have a clean room to show us at noon so we went elsewhere. Would highly reccomend staying elsewhere, as the lobby was filthy dirty, where they served the continental breakfeast was nasty looking, had not been wiped in days.
