Econo Lodge, Fort Wayne
Excellent4.0 / 5
Check in was extremely slow and we were the only ones in the lobby. Also, our room was really hot - even when we turned down the heat. Otherwise the hotel was clean, the employees pretty friendly and it was quiet.

New Owners, Remodeled Facilities
Check in was smooth, although this motel requires a $50 deposit for staying, even though I booked through Now I have to check to see if that was refunded/credited to my charge card. Extra work for me. Although this is the former Lee's Inn (where I stayed every time I came to Ft Wayne) the upgrades made the place look nice, but the beds were hard. Breakfast which was great in the days of Lee' Inn were sub-par by comparison. Staff was friendly--that made a difference in my stay.

Cheap, good Wi-Fi, yet not too clean.
This place was interesting. It seemed to be run by a family living in the hotel. It smelled the second you walk in. I got to my room, which was surprisingly halfway nice looking. I took off my shoes and felt something that felt like tiny rocks poking me. I wish it was. It was finger nails. I called the front desk, and he came down within a minute with a vacuum cleaner to sweep and explained they had a new housekeeper. The rest of the floor wasn't all that clean either. The sink was clogged, and filters in the heating/AC unit were dirty (I only looked because one was sticking up when I first came into the room). I left and by the time I got back from a wedding I was attending, the clog had been fixed, although some of the dried mildew was left in my sink. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, despite the dried white stains on the cloth headboard that I wiped off with soap/water+ washcloth before laying down. Most hotel Wi-Fi is deplorable at best, but it was actually really good here. I'm a millennial, so this was almost redeemable for everything else. The breakfast was decent as well: plenty of coffee, OJ, waffles, cereal, and other carbs available. No hot food, besides the waffles, which is fine.
