The reason I picked Econo Lodge was because it was the only hotel in Athens with a smoking room. I reserved a smoking room. They did not have one available when I checked in.

Clean but noisy.

The room was clean but it was very noisy with people who lived there. The bathtub was stopped up and kept filling up every time we showered. The only day that we ate the breakfast there was nothing left but waffles. Apparently someone else had took several plates of food before I got there. I meet my husband there. They need thicker blankets also. We had 2 sheets and a very thin blanket . Also the pillows we're thin.

There were food crumbs on the carpet. The furniture was old and beat up, the door wouldn't close all the way- like maybe someone forced their way in previously or something, the washcloth was stained the washer in the laundry room didn't work, the carpet was sticky, no cable-just local channels, no Wi-Fi.

Only stay in an emergency hotel

Check in was delayed because reservation with my name had been X'd out and clerk didn't know what to do and apparently didn't know how to use phone to call for help. Went to dinner, returned and new night clerk could not have cared less about me or my questions. After being in my room a bit I returned to night clerk to inform him that my room smelled like smoke. I didn't want to be charged $250 for smoking in my room. He didn't want to hear my complaint. He just shooed me away. Breakfast was a joke.
