A good deal for the frugal traveler

Posted 25-Oct-2016
Location: We used to live on LI and we were visiting old friends. There are many places to see in the area, but that wasn't the point of our trip.
The room rate is so low, you're almost suspicious. We looked at the room before checking in and found it perfectly acceptable, clean, with a big comfortable bed and a TV, a fold down ironing board and iron. It also has what we assume is a Wi-Fi charger, but I'm not sure. Free breakfast from 6:30 to 10:00AM with coffee, juice, cereal, rolls, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs. The shower leaked all night, but it's their water bill, not ours.

Most places are several miles away. Hotel was quiet.

My base for the reunion.

Posted 03-Oct-2016
Pros: Convenience to buses. Easy walking to shopping.
Cons: If possible, build an elevator so people would not have to struggle with bags trying to reach the 2nd floor.
Location: Ecolodge is at the western extremity of Hicksville. Eastern Westbury is just over the Wantagh Parkway bridge. There are a few gas stations.
I liked that the hotel was just off Old Country Road. I was able to use several NICE buses to and from Hicksville Station. Not having an elevator posed problems but not serious ones. I was at the end of the wing so it was a long walk from the Registration desk to get to. Wake up calls were within a few minutes of being promised.. I had difficulty getting a seat for breakfast on Sunday. The food though was very good. I think I plan to use it the next time I visit my old neighborhood.

"Do not disturb sign"

Posted 24-Sep-2016
Pros: Reasonable price
Location: It was convenient
The "Do not disturb" sign was ignored by staff. After I left the room for the day I came back to find the room had been entered and furniture "A chair" was removed. To say the least I felt violated since I left all my belongings out as I would have not without the sign up. After I put in a formal complaint they weren't sure what to do about the problem. I stayed for 5 days and this happened early into the stay and made me uncomfortable the rest of the visit. I felt I should have been due a total refund but they only gave me a comp for my next "stay" which was only 1 night. I'm unsure if I will take them up on the next stay If they can not seem to control the staff from doing as they please and ignore my privacy for their convenience of doing their work. I was also unable to get a bath towel the entire rest of the time when I asked the maid service since I was not allowing anyone into my room the entire stay. Needless to say I was uneasy the rest of the stay.

Nice hotel for a night

Posted 21-Sep-2016
Pros: Everything, even the Wi-Fi was great
Cons: The breakfast area should be larger
Location: N/A
The hotel manager came to my room to resolve the key issue, he even volunteered to help me carry my bags.

Basic Comforts & Ample Breakfast Options

Posted 16-Sep-2016
Pros: Convenient access to major highways; numerous breakfast options in motel; proximity to local restaurants serving dinner; pleasant staff.
Cons: If plastic ice buckets had a cover, it would be easier to keep ice frozen for longer.
Location: Our visit was planned at the last minute and was required by a family emergency, so there was no opportunity to explore the area.
This is a very conveniently located motel, with basic creature comforts. Our room was simply appointed with simple furnishings, but it had everything we cared about and/or needed (cleanliness, comfortable beds, decent towels, basic toiletries, a hair dryer, ironing board, TV, WiFi, nearby ice machine, free parking) as well as a few pleasant surprises (microwave, already plugged in cold refrigerator). Considering that the modest room rate also included a complimentary breakfast, we thought it was a great find and served our short-term needs perfectly. Breakfast options included self-service pancakes, oatmeal and cold cereals, bagels, rolls, muffins, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juices, hot chocolate, coffee, and even some special coffee drinks. If one is seeking elegant accommodations or a hotel with attractive grounds, it's best to look elsewhere but the price will probably be double or triple what Econo Lodge charges and might not even include breakfast.

Clean and Budget Friendly Hotel

Posted 13-Sep-2016
Pros: Low price but clean and close to highway
Cons: Add fruit to the breakfast menu
The room is clean, breakfast is OK with New York Bagel. Very close to the highway and easy access to everywhere. Keep in mind that this is a budget hotel!

Party, Alkohol, schlechtes Publikum

Posted 04-Sep-2016
Pros: Sehr verkehrsgünstig gelegen.
Cons: Hotel benötigt Renovierung. Auf die Gäste beim Check-in achten.
Location: Liegt verkehrsgünstig zum Jones Beach, Old Country Road und Parkway nach New York.
Gerade zum Wochenende ein beliebtes Hotel für After-Partys auf den Zimmern. Dies laut, mit viel Alkohol etc. Das Hotel ist verkehrsmäßig gut gelegen. Für eine Nacht, am besten unter der Woche, ok. Zimmer groß aber alt und sehr hellhörig. Die Klimaanlagen sind so laut, dass man sie Nachts nicht nutzen kann. Personal am Empfang fast alle nett und hilfsbereit. Für eine Nacht, wenn man Glück hat, ok. Ansonsten nur abzuraten.

Nice older hotel

Posted 21-Aug-2016
This Econo Lodge is older but clean and affordable. If you need to save money but feel safe and get a good nights rest, this is a great option. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room plumbing leaked and dripped and there's no air conditioning in the hallways but other than that, we were pleased. We've stayed here twice.

Very nice, very clean hotel-short walk to beach.

Posted 03-Aug-2016
Pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was...by far the best jersey shore hotel I've ever stayed in for the price. Convenient parking. 5 minute walk to beach and boardwalk. Highly recommended.
