Exceptionally good value and experience

Pros: The great experience and room, and also hotel staff. Exceptional value also.
Location: Nice location. Food and groceries in walking distance, and many restaurants close by car
Easy checkin, given 1st floor room to accomodate for mild disability. Room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Coffee maker not in room on arrival, but called and said they had to store them up front and had one waiting when I walked there. I had an issue with the TV and called, and someone was there in about 5 min. Turned out that I had loosened wires in the back while plugging in my phone, so that was a quick fix and then he made sure I knew how to work everything before he left and was quite nice and understanding even though I had caused the problem. All other amenities were modern and functioned well.

Room was very clean but the bed was hard as a rock. Pillows were flat. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was cereal or waffle.

The hotel is old and needs a facelift and a technology upgrade. The breakfast was very scarce. The front desk staff was nice and the room was clean. The location is convenient to UA and there are several restaurants nearby.

Dangerous!

The hotel is filthy. There are holes in the walls, broken furniture, torn up curtains. Too many shady people coming in & out of rooms all night. One guy stood in front of our room until 2am so I could not sleep. Free breakfast? Cereal with no milk or coffee with no cream! I wouldn't recommend this hotel to any human being! We left ASAP & found another hotel

I had a meeting that I needed to attend in the area, the hotel was near the meeting. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very professional. If I need to attend another meeting in the Northport area I will choose to stay at the Econo Lodge.

This facility needs a visit from Undercover Boss

2 out of 5
by from Tennessee
Posted Aug 11, 2015
Pros: The lady who checked us in that night was hospitable and engaging. She handled our registration smoothly and efficiently.
Cons: We would nominate this for Undercover Boss staying for a day or two with their own credit cards, Econo-lodge might be able to improve its brand image.
Location: A grocery store and two fast food sites were easy walking from the hotel without crossing any major streets. A pharmacy was next to the hotel.
August 9, 2015--We stayed at the Econo-lodge North Port, Ala from Monday night through Friday night. The following are our observations based upon many years of travel, experience in interior design, and in organizational operations. The franchise owner, was culturally insensitive, brusque and his efforts to resolve several problems were dismissive to the point of insulting. The cleaning ladies walked off the job Friday morning. Our rooms were not cleaned. The manager tried to blame a “new housekeeping woman”. The size of the bath towels were similar to hand towels in other motels. The facility needed repairs. The pool area needed daily cleaning. The fencing needed repair. The bathroom in our room needed floor repairs. The floor was not sealed from the wall allowing water seepage behind the wallboard encouraging mold growth. The refrigerator in our room had a broken control knob and leftover frozen “something” in the freezer compartment. The knob was not replaced nor repaired. There was an offensive odor in the room. Some of our military family members noticed a similar fungal smell in their room. The facility seems to have a septic problem--urine smells wafted down from the second floor. The exterior of the facility was not kept clean. Cigarette butts and trash were not picked up daily. We have traveled widely and this by far was one of the least desirable motels we have encountered. This hotel ranks below several hotels in Kabul.
