"Decent place to stay"
This Econolodge was clean and close to the location where we were going for the evening. The only downfall was the breakfast, which included a voucher for your "choice" of coffee, tea or juice and toast or a donut. There is a Bob Evans with-in walking distance and a Burger King and McDonalds are near-by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"first but not last visit"
it was my 1st of many visits!!!!!!!!!I WILL ONLY STAY AT ECONO LODGE WHEN VISITING MY DAUGHTER AT COLLEGE!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for one or two nights."
The hotel was easy to find. It was clean and the beds were reasonably comfortable. It was a good place to stay for the overnight. The only complaint I have is that the "continental breakfast" was by far the worse I have seen in any hotel and I travel a lot!Genuine Expedia guest review
we wished it had a refrigerator in the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice and cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was dingy, rooms had a musty/smokey odor, bathroom was antiquated, rugs were worn, old and trapped odors. Would only stay here again if I was forced to. This hotel needs renovations badly. The cost was way over priced for the condition of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i am sorry but it was probably the worst hotel i ever stayed at.the room was dirty felt like there was bed bugs around.what continental breakfast ,i would rather sleep in my car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Bucknell U"
Hotel is definitely not luxury and it was not inexpensive (!), but it was close to Parent's Weekend at Bucknell (university is about 10 miles away and this hotel is on the north end of Shamokin Dam, closest to Lewisburg). Breakfast was very sparse and the man taking room numbers very unfriendly, but the hotel fit the bill and we didn't spend much time […] in the room anyway. Did enjoy a relaxed Mexican dinner at the attached restaurant and the service there was very friendly and the food decent. Room was also quiet at night which was a plus. There were signs posted that they were rennovating, but not sure what that meant. To get more than two stars they would have to have a complete overhaul. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Bucknell"
Building looks pretty seedy from the road but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was non existent but there is a Bob Evans right next door with great service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient to resteraunts and shopping."
Not as much conveniences in the room as I would like but for the price it was good. Very convenient to shopping. No refrigerator which was inconvenient for a two day stay. Clean. Staff was polite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"There were Pros and Cons of our stay"
Overall, Our stay was pleasent. Its in a prime location with plenty of Restaurants, Shopping and gas stations. I felt it was a bit pricey for the age of the rooms. The pool was very nice. The room was clean. The beds were also comfortable. And the air conditioner worked wonderfully. Cons to this stay besides the price and the needs of the rooms needing […] to be updated(with a flat screen tv, newer carpet, and the ceiling is very old with some cracks in the corners) the free so called breakfast I felt was a joke. When I get offered continental breakfast at Motels, it includes more then 1 drink, more then 1 danish, piece of toast, bagel etc. This Motel gave us a coupon for 1 free coffee OR juice. And 1 free Danish OR toast. And is served between 6am-and 9am, Sorry but if my checkout is at 11am I am not rushing down for this snack of a breakfast. Please improve the breakfast choices. Maybe cereal, fresh fruit, milk etc. Not all people eat Danishes and/or toast for breakfast. I want to add, the staff was very friendly. And this motel is very easy to find.

"old, run down hotel; poor breakfast"
Very disappointed. Everything was old, worn out, dingy in the room. Clean enough but ratty blankets, rug, furniture. Continental breakfast was in a dirty old restaurant attached to hotel and consisted of toast or English muffin, coffee or juice. Certainly not what is generally accepted as a continental breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was nice to bring the family dog and sit by the pool to wach the kids play.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to family"
te contential breakfast could have been better. I litle more of a selection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and convenient"
Our stay was short and pleasant. We checked-in late (11:30 p.m.) and went straight to bed. The Hotel is very close to our final destination (Bucknell University). The room is clean and the only staff we encounter at check-in was very cheerful. The 2 star rating is appropriate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for price"
they were in the process of renovating the place so when i walked in the room i found that powder like bits of the ceiling was all over the bed.. besides that a decent place for the price.. construction crew were up by 8 so it was noisy early morningGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was pleasntly surprised by the quality of the room at the Shamokin Dam Econolodge. It was the nicest Econolodge I have ever stayed in and would stay there again. Coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. were a plus, soft towels, room and bathroom clean and good condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Econo Lodge near Bucknell"
The staff was great at this hotel. Very accommodating and helpful. But...The smoke smell was overwhelming! We were visiting for Bucknell's family weekend and the entire area was "NO VACANCY" so we were stuck with this hotel. I would not recommend it unless you are forced to stay there because the other hotels in Lewisburg are full.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I wasn't expecting much, but the bed was firm, the room clean, and the minor flaws of plastering or a crack in the sink insignificant. Lack of refrigerator or microwave a big negative, refrigerator more than microwave -- I had food I wanted to keep cool. Location is excellent, right off Rte. 15. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were in a smoking room, I didn't request one. It smelled so bad like smoke that I couldn't spend very long in it. All of my clothes and even bag that I brought stink of smoke. I had trouble sleeping due to the intense smell of smoke.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we stayed one night and didnt have any issues. we would stay again it was a good room for the price!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably the worst hotel we ever stayed in."
Rooms very dirty. Pool full of algae. Restaurant was so dirty we were not willing to neat there. Lack of staff resulted in front desk supplying me with a plunger to unclog the toilet in our room. Bottom line, would not recommend this hotel to anyone. STAY AWAY!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Little League World Series"
It was exactly what we wanted for the three families on vacation together, great outdoor space for the kids and parents.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Adequate hotel experience"
We had a friendly, welcoming reception. Everything seemed to run smoothly. The continental breakfast seemed a little bare-bones compared to some. I was disappointed to see use of "Made in China" toilet tissue. I would prefer domestic origin and better quality. This motel seemed a little overpriced. Otherwise this was a good stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very run down and showing its age. Will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A place to rest your head-I guess. "
08/23/14 A TripAdvisor Member
I stay at many hotels each year, and have for many years, and this would have to be at the bottom of my list. The room we stayed in was called a 'Suite' but was adjoining rooms with beds only in one of the rooms. This was the best part of the hotel. There was plenty of room for my wife and kids, but the good stops there. Beds were hard as rocks, stained carpets, paint falling off the walls in the bathroom. Black dirt ring around the inside of the toilet. They didn't even make up the room after the 2nd night's stay. Upon arrival home we found some "friends" wandering in our laundry. First time staying at an Econo Lodge- and unless there are no other options available in the area, it will probably be the last. Economy shouldn't mean this.
"Clean room, friendly staff"
08/05/14 TruthfulTraveler623 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Great location in Shamokin Dam PA. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Exterior of property is fairly well maintained. The pool is clean and inviting. The rooms were mostly redone recently with new air conditioners, carpets, wall covering, linens and curtains, compact fridge, new sink faucet but they didn't update the bathroom sink which was badly cracked and over 20yrs old. Overall not a bad place to stay. I would stay again when I pass through the area.
"Musty, Damp Rooms"
07/15/14 jt h Newark, Delaware
This is the second time staying at this hotel in the past two years. I thought I would not return after the first stay but due to late plans I did not have any choices under $175 per night. Rooms on both stays were "non smoking" rooms but you immediately get hit with smoke smell as soon as you open door. Both stays the rooms also were very musty and damp. The entire hotel and grounds are in disrepair. Trash overflowing in outdoor garbage cans, cracked and broken concrete walkways, paint peeling on doors, cracked sink, missing room numbers on doors, etc. etc. The front desk worker seems to hate his job and the breakfast is a joke.

was a little skeptical about guality but really nice and good price. lobby was spotless and great staff. room was clean smelled good and beds nice, very modern. nice pool area, good ac. nice mex rest. on site so food was easy and really good stuff. great drink specials good food selection and quick. would stay and eay here again
The renovated rooms are quite comfortable and clean. On our last stay they were pretty run down. Again, the pool is really nice when travelling with a big group of kids. We had a really nice stay. The arrangement they have with the attached Mexican restaurant for breakfast should be reconsidered. It is terrible. Luckily there is a Bob Evans right next door.
"clean friendly hotel"
06/12/14 Ramsaymom Hanover, Pennsylvania
i would absolutely stay here again.so glad i checked trip advisor before my husband and i went away for a couple of days for a little antique shopping.i didnt book ahead but we got there around 11:30 and got a very good price and the girl at the desk-Joy-was very friendly and helpful and even upgraded me into a better room so we could check in then instead of the later normal check in time. i was able to take in our luggage and freshen up and then hit the stores-The Street Of Shops 125 Fine Shops was our favorite.everyone was so friendly and room was very clean and i had 2 great nights sleep.it rained so i didnt get in the pool but it looked very nice and clean also.
"Quiet & comfortable, even when busy."
06/08/14 iamrennie North Plainfield, New Jersey
No problems here at all. Standard room. Clean. Very courteous staff. Above-average furniture for discount, rural-area hotel. Varieties of pillow firmness. Large tube TV. Easy access from road. Pool was well maintained, organized surroundings & clean. I always go non-smoking & top floor. Same thing here, with King bed. No problems. We did not check out the adjoining Mexican restaurant.
"Good for the price."
05/27/14 Sarah R Fairview Park, Ohio
My mom and I stayed here while visiting my sister. The place was clean and staff was friendly. We've stayed at Econo Lodge a few times and never had any problems. Being dog friendly is very convenient.
"best place by a dam sight hidden gem !"
05/10/14 mary l Stevensville, Canada
We were on our way home with a boat we had bought so we needed large parking. When we came to this motel it seemed ideal. We checked in and were told to park in back as there was lots of parking.We were able to park right across from the entrance. I did not expect greatness, what a surprise. The room was large inviting and very clean, the king size bed excellent, very comfortable. I would love to come here in the summer as it has a great layout. The rooms are around an open courtyard with a pool sitting area, very inviting. We had not eaten and did not really want to go out with the boat or unhook it they have a Mexican restaurant in the front and we decided to just go there. We figured how great can a Mexican restaurant be in a motel. The last time we had Mexican food this good we were in Mexico. Don,t miss it. Everything was a plus Staff were all friendly and helpfull !.

Ask for an extra blanket . . . I was chilly! While the exterior of the property needs better upkeep and some improvement, the rooms themselves have been nicely renovated. I was content with what I got for the reasonable price.
