Would NOT stay here again!!!Posted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: It was close to the location of the wedding we attended.
Cons: Better upkeep of the facilities, updated appliances, updated bedding, and better/more employee staffing.
Location: The Holland area is very close to Grand Rapids. We visited the Ihop restaurant down the street which was excellent.
Expedia informed me that Economy Inn was the only hotel in the Holland area that offered an in-room Jacuzzi tub, so I reserved the room. When we arrived to check in, we were disturbed to see that the hotel's location is very unpleasant (my husband referred to it as a ghetto and did not want to leave the room after dark!). Other complaints: 1. Our NON smoking room smelled like cigarettes, 2. The bathroom door was partway off it's hinges and would not close, 3. The Jacuzzi tub was OLD and made an extremely loud noise when the jets were turned on, 4. There were children running up and down the outside pathway yelling and adults out there speaking loudly, which we could hear clearly (perhaps the walls are thin?), 5. The bedding and curtains were old and worn and the pillows were flat, lumpy and uncomfortable, 6. There were NO staff available in the office to complain to or to help resolve our issues.

Not greatPosted Sep 9, 2013
Hotels in Holland are expensive and fill up fast. Book early!!!! When I made my reservation, it was this hotel or a drive to GR. I paid a high price for a room where the curtains were not wide enough to cover the window, leaving a three foot gap with no curtains. I had a small blanket in my bag and covered the window with that. There was a table, that could be used as a desk, but no chair. You had to do computer work either standing up or laying on the bed. There was no bedside table, so they were using the rack that is meant to hold your suitcase, as a table for the phone. The sign in front said four kinds of HBO, But the TV was so old and buzzed so loud, it was not worth watching. This place should be leveled and replaced with a new hotel.

Run down motelPosted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Nothing, i wanted to sleep in the back seat of the car instead of staying here.
Cons: They could atleast clean the rooms
Location: LOcation isnt bad because its a quick drive to Saugatuck and to downtown Holland
This Motel was completely run down inside and out. This place seems to be the main motel in the area that allows people to "live" there. Although the motel was "non smoking" our room was FULL of smoke because the people living in the room next to us chained smoked inside, who were relatives of the front desk clerk. The walls were full of random stains and dirt, lights didn't work, toilet didnt flush and when we pulled back the bed spread there was a old wrapper in the sheet. DO NOT book this hotel and expect a relaxing vacation spot. There is also a sign in the lobby saying " If you feel like you need to call the police please call the front desk first and see if we can resolve the issue, anyone who has the police called on them willl be forced to leave."

Terrible hotelPosted Aug 26, 2013
Cons: Just to clean room.
I stayed there because everywhere else was booked. I can understand economy, I did not expect luxury room. But it was dirt carpet, never vaccum, it was dust everywhere . At least sheets were clean.

Disgusting. 1 Star is too much.Posted Aug 19, 2013
Location: With a 15 - 20 minute drive, there is a tiny sliver of beach front that is public access. Very cute. Beautiful sunsets!
What are they trying to hide with all that carpet fresh powder? The management was nice enough. She was very accommodating when I told her I couldn't stay here, and the carpet powder smell was too overwhelming for me and my daughter. But I still have to give an honest review to warn people. If this is the last place to stay in Holland, MI (which it was on the Saturday night we needed a room - everything else was sold out), then spend another 30 minutes on the road and find a place in Grand Rapids. (like I did.)

Stayed 30 Minutes and checked back out.Posted Aug 7, 2013
Pros: Economy Inn there wasn't anything We liked about the room.
Location: I don't Know
We checked in and it smelled of smoke, we got we than got a different room and it was small air conditioning didn't work right the bath room was so small there was standing room.You could see under the door and the key's had a hard time opening the door. I stayed there 30 minutes and checked out and found a nice hotel in Grand Rapid's, MI at the Ramada INN for 20 dollars a night more and was happy with that Hotel. It had a Pool with a 3 story slide, a whirl pool, a game room and Gym and a Nice and clean Room with plenty of space..

noPosted Jun 4, 2013
Cons: The room
The sheets on one of the beds had a cool aid stain on both sheets in the same spot, so this tells me they didn't change this bed. No coffee pots, no hair dryer, no alarm clock, no breakfast like advertised. Someone elses hair on the bathroom floor. It was disgusting.

Cheap hotel for a cheap pricePosted May 29, 2013
Pros: The price.
Cons: The condition of the rooms. It needs to be cleaned and have new linens.
My husband and I planned a last minute trip and couldn't find another hotel in our price range. We were very disappointed with the friendliness of the staff and the condition of the rooms. We had a non smoking room and had to change rooms because the smell of stale smoke filled the room. I was sick the moment we walked in the room. The lady at the front desk did change the room for us. But the second room was quite honestly disgusting. We didn't even want to walk on the floor with bare feet. The room was musty and severely in need of a updating. I wanted to change hotels but everything in the area was booked up.

Never againPosted Mar 1, 2013
The advertised items were not as promised. WiFI worked somewhat but not all the time. I finally put my laptop away. The TV stations had a loud hum in some of the audio. The free local calls would have worked if there was a phone in my room. This also made the chance of a wake-up call impossible. Breakfast was not available as of 7:30AM. THere are multipel lower cost hotels in the area that make this one unacceptable.
