Pros: Bed was very comfortable.
Cons: Obviously in room maintenance needs a lot of improvement.
Inside door handle came off when I attempted to open door to outside. A pin and/or a bolt apparently had wore out. The handle just spun on the shaft. A very dangerous situation. I carried the door handle (after I finally got the door opened) and gave it to Receptionist on duty and told her the whole story about the door handle.

Ok hotel close enough to cruise portPosted Jan 31, 2015
Pros: The bed was nice and comfortable and the bathroom was clean as well.
Cons: The attitude of the front desk clerk
The room was nice and clean however I called the hotel 2 days in advance as we were driving from NC to Tampa to go on a cruise. I contacted them to see about parking our car there instead of at the port and getting shuttled back and forth. The lady I spoke with said there wouldn't be a problem and that she would put us on the list to make sure we had a shuttle service at 11am. When we got to the hotel at midnight on Friday the day before our cruise the lady at the front desk rudely told us that wasn't possible and that the earliest would be 1pm. We had to be at the port prior to that. So we ended up having to drive and pay over double for parking due to the misinformation.

Front desk staffPosted Jan 31, 2015
Cons: Staff should be taught to be courteous, to smile, and not to argue with the client. We were provided with one face cloth for two people.
my cousin and I checked in after 11:00 pm. Our reservation was for a non smoking room and as we were both senior citizens, using canes to walk, we were hoping for a bottom floor accommodation. The front desk clerk said our room was for a smoking room, I had to show her the printed confirmation for her to believe me. Only room available for us, unless we wanted the smoking room, was on second floor, naturally, we took the second floor. She "get in your car", go pass the stop sign to the six hundred block...no further instructions, was it at the back of the 600 block, or the front? It was pitch black out, had to climb the stairs to find our room, naturally it was on the opposite side of where she directed us to. Key cards did not work, down the stairs, back to the office for new ones. No apology, no smile. Just push the handle in before turning was all that was said. Never again at an Econolodge, one rude, unapologetic staff member made that choice for us.

Old rundown hotelPosted Jan 27, 2015
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Pretty much everything
Location: Nothing within walking distance. No gas station. Just RJ Stadium. Walmart is about a mile down the road.
One lamp didn't work, the other had only a very dim bulb. One washcloth for two people. Box spring broken in half so bed sank in the middle. Wifi would not connect. Carpet in room was filthy. Room had terrible odor. No elevator. Condensation from the A/C units made the painted hallway floors very slippery.

I got what I expected.Posted Jan 27, 2015
I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but with the cost of the room and the ratings from previous guests, I got what I paid for - a bed and a bath.

Location: Near the stadium -- and also near the xxxx district if that is something you like.
This hotel is not in a resort area. The pool is not inviting. The rooms are basic and are in sore need of upgrading. The biggest problem is that the attractive rate brings undesirable guests -- particularly on the weekend. Lots of drama, crying, screaming. But then again, you get what you pay for. The staff was quite good and the rate was great.
