My room smelled like an ashtray. There was burn marks on the bedding and edge of the bathroom. You can hear every footstep the person in the room above you makes. The TV was broken. I had what I think was staff talking loudly enough outside to keep me up after 10pm. The good.....it's close to the airport and the man driving the shuttle was very nice. The woman at the desk at checkout was also very nice.

No water, no table, 1 chair in the bare room. Spotted lantern bugs and asian stink bugs all over.

They had no record of my booking, and refused giving me a room. I want my money back. I am having to spend the night in the airport getting an occasional 15 minute nap on the floor.

Our room smelled of smoke even though we requested a nonsmoking room. The hvac was extremely loud when it came on and the tv didn't work. The floor was sticky, there was dirt in the corners of the room and the toilet handle had to be jiggled each time it was used or else it would continuously run.

The best things I can say about the Econo Lodge in Lester PA is that it is convenient to Philadelphia and the room was reasonably clean. (Just do not walk on the carpet with bare feet or expect your bathroom not to contain mold somewhere.) The staff are nice and the price is reasonable. The Quality Inn and Econo Lodge are pretty much connected, so breakfast is served for both hotels at the Quality Inn. The bread, english muffins, bagels, and muffins were all extremely hard. The juices seemed watered down, the coffee was so bad that 4 Splendas in a 6oz. coffee cup didn't even help. But... they did have a waffle machine, cereal, and oatmeal packs that I did not try. All in all that being said will I stay here again. The answer is "Yes" because it is the most reasonable priced within driving distance to Philly. It is not a bad place to drop suitcases go about your excursions and then come back to sleep. (The beds are hard as boards, but the sheet are clean!)

Property is in very bad condition. We asked for non-smoking room but we were put in a smoking room twice. Rooms were not clean. Toilet was broken. Overall, room was in filthy condition. Will never stay at econolodge again and will think twice before using Choice group of hotels.
