Guest Recommendations
"great value for cost."
Sarah from Wilmington, US rated Econo Lodge Oceanfront 8 out of 10 on August 31, 2004
"When I laid down to take a nap or slpeep-in, I was constantly being awakened by the entrance and exit doors to the stairs and parking garage. I recommend some sort of device that allows the door to close secure yet without the slam. Everything else was great, however the unrestful naps and sleep-ins were enough to make me consider another hotel."
Woodrow from Niota, TN US rated Econo Lodge Oceanfront 8 out of 10 on August 08, 2004
"Good location to the beach and attractios. Hotel staff was accomodating, but the hotel needs a lot of work. Old and musty with holes in the curtains, beds that sag in the middle, carpet you wouldn't want to walk barefoot on, etc. Since I made reservations at the last minute, the price we paid was worth it to be on the beach (all other hotels were sold out), but definitely wouldn't pay that much again for this place."
