Hotels >Econo Lodge
Editorial Review. Nationwide hotel chain is family- and business-friendly. Amenities include communication facilities, large conference rooms, Jacuzzi suites and outdoor pools.
I did not want to touch the bedsheets, the bathroom was dirty and the leaking mini fridge must have been at least ten years old. The room smelled like smoke, even when I requested a non smoking room. It was such a pity that the locals of Morro Bay are all friendly, but at this hotel the staff member at the front desk was rude and did not understand English. He talked down to me, tried to reassure me that the room was a non smoking room even though it smelled. He refused to to help me with my request for another room, and simply treated me as if I did not pay for the services.
I left that hotel, after this incident with the staff, and decided to move to another hotel. Whatever you do, do not stay here. It was the biggest waist of money and a huge headache when I was just trying to get a break from work for the weekend.
Next time I will be such to never use the Econo Lodge chain again.
Do NOT COME HERE! Credit fraud, physical threats, smoke in non smoking room.
If you want to have the hotel manager enter your room without notice (no phone calls) and not for emergency reasons...
If you want to be physically threatened ...
If you want your credit card information (security code, expiration date, full number) written down on paper multiple times as well as on the computer without being properly shredded..
If you want to be racially profiled by the owner Jack (twice and both times incorrectly as an Israeli and Muslim, calling me a terror .. (ist) - I can't use the word since citysearch flags it as innapropriate. I am forever sorry for the pains and grievances upon both Israelis and Muslims [of any ethnicity] for what they've had to struggle with)...
If you want to be humiliated in front of your family and spouse...
then this could be the place for you.
Our stay here lasted two hours, 45 minutes of which was spent outside of the lodge. DO NOT STAY HERE! There are 2 econo lodges on Main Street. I can only speak of the atrocities at 1100 main street.
The Morro Bay police department got involved and were apologetic for the incident and said its a shame that we cut our trip short since there's a lot of quality establishments in the area. I thanked them and know there are much better lodges in the area - I just didn't want some man (Jack - the manager) out looking for my license plate or my spouse's.
One more 'if' that must be prefaced by advising you not complain about non-smoking rooms that wreak of smoke that's stenched into the walls and sheets. No disrespect at all meant towards smokers - I paid for a non smoking room though and that's not what we got. Families beware!
