Worse than you would expect for the price

Posted Apr 28, 2017
Pros: The dirt on my feet from the carpet evidenced from getting into the bathtub. Trying to guess for hours the origin or nature of chemical smell in room.
Cons: The speed of the bulldozer arriving or demolition team with 40yd. roll-off dumpsters to remove entire contents of rooms.
Location: Read license plates of cars passing by on the freeway.. or gaze at all the other "much-nicer" hotels nearby where you could have stayed.. sob, sob.
Very nice check in young lady. Price I paid on line was 15% higher than a walk in rate. Q: why book something on line and pay more than the local nar-do wells (shady characters malingering on/in/around property)??, I wondered after super nice young lady explained I payed 15% more by booking on line verified by my receipt!?!?! This property is typical "these days" as "new owners" ... " " (two fingers in the air) so called RENOVATING " " said properties. They are all basically in need of TOTAL GUTTING OF UNITS instead of sugar coating existing "long term defects" in low budget un-maintained (for countless years) hotels. Nowadays if a "" renovated" " hotel has exterior walkways you can expect the worst. It seems as all " " new management" " try to put bandaids on major issues just to 'turn a buck" to poorer people (me) who can't afford to pay more than double what these dumps charge. Sign of the times unfortunately. Other than nice young lady @ checkin, ENTIRE STAFF SEEMED " " RELATED" " and EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL... Example: Guy with a gas leaf blower wearing a ""shower-cap" "carrying his "jug" of water.. blowing common areas while guests were trying to check in at 4:00pm. Bottom line: have expected professional standards for your staff. Invest in OUTWARD APPEARANCE for your hotel/staff and customers... otherwise these properties are soon to be forgotten thanks to the internet now and sharing of information. Stay far away from this place, sleep in your car at a rest stop.

Was disappointed with my two nights stay.

Posted Mar 26, 2017
Pros: Nothing
Cons: A lot can be improved & they have renovation work going on so may be in future it might be a better experience.
Location: Close to freeway but 25 mins away from historic district.
First room was work in progress, second room provided but toilet was not working, finally had to move to a third room. It was a fine room but the clothes & towel rods were on the floor yet to be reinstalled on the wall. To close to the freeway & there were some machine work performed at 7 am while all guests would still b trying to catch up on sleep. Breakfast lacked a lot. Staff was nice & friendly.

Don't go

Posted Feb 13, 2017 on Hotels
Terrible...... had to pay 15 dollars a day for pet fee which wasn't so bad until we found out that we couldn't leave our 3lb Yorkie in the room alone or it would be another 75 dollars. And they had roaches. Will not be going back unless I feel the urge to buy some crack or somthing

I am truly sorry that we failed to exceed your expectations. We welcome our guests to bring their furry friends, but leaving them unattended is not permitted for any long length of time. Pets sometimes get upset being in an unfamiliar place all alone and this can led to them crying or barking for extended periods of time which is upsetting to other guests. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this caused you, however next time you stay we can recommend some really great doggy day cares that are close by. Your pet can run and play and have an amazing time while you are out for the day. Thank you, Management Team Econo Lodge Savannah South
