The Econo Lodge hotel is ideally located off Interstate 95, just 25 miles from major Washington, D.C. attractions. This Dumfries hotel is close to attractions and businesses, like the Potomac Hospital, Potomac Mills outlet mall, Strayer University, Averett University and Old Dominion University. The Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is just 28 miles away. Dumfries is Virginia's oldest town and home to many historic points of interest. The Gunston Hall Plantation, Weems-Botts Museum, Occoquan Mill House Museum, Freedom Museum and The Manassas Museum are all nearby. Visitors will enjoy golfing, fishing, boating and tennis just minutes from the hotel.
The location was central to all of my business activities. It was close to restaurants, shopping, etc. as well.
Room was marked as a non-smoking room but it still smelled of stale cigarette smoke. My clothes had it and I just washed everything when I got home whether I had worn it or not just to get the smell out.
My reservation wasn't even ready when attempting to check in. The desk people could barely speak English and had poor communication skills. The room was filthy with no pillow cases. People ran up and down the hallway. Very poor experience.
Poor communication and lack of being able to speak English to effectively communicate
The staff was very friendly.
Upgrade TV would be a nice touch

Price and location
Overall cleanliness and state of repair is sub-par
The crowd of people standing around during the evening hours. The horrific smell of smoke in all hallways and rooms were sickening. The staff that didn't speak 1 word to you when you walked past. The breakfast which was tiny muffin and donuts. Never again
Small rooms , not to clean
Hotel was old
The hotel was pretty disgusting. The top floor smelled of smoke and marajuana, and each room I went into was really damp and disgusting. I ended up sleeping in my car outside of the motel and then just using the room to get ready in the morning.
Variety of tv channels
Clean and comfortable.
Front desk staff (Wanda) was very rude. Hotel smells really bad. TV is old CRT model. Remote control for TV was held together by tape. No wash cloths in room.
The staff was very nice and accommodating. I switched rooms twice, because I wanted a suite with a full refrigerator, not for any other reason, and they were very nice about it. Bathrooms were clean, kitchen area was clean, furniture looked fairly new, and overall the room was nice and very fitting for our budget and our needs!
When you check in, the lobby smells really bad, like spicy foods in the microwave or something. That never went away. The continental breakfast was stale donuts and juice and coffee, nothing else! There were many many bugs in my room and bathroom, no coffeemakers, black mold in the bathroom. The wifi works, but stay at a different hotel with wifi. Oh and front desk staff knows NOTHING about the area. I mean even about the existence of the two restaurants not even 100 feet away from this location. Amazing, in a bad way.
This EconoLodge did not have fitted sheets at all! The sheets curled up onto the bed and you were on the mattress. Also, there was no hair dryer or iron or ironing board. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room but the microwave did not work. When I told them about it, the response was that the maintence man was not in. And in the next 2 days we stayed it was not fixed. The entry door had a huge rust spot. I would not stay there again!
Terrible- reservation sheet said coffee maker in room; clerk said they had never done this; no coffee in lobby except between 6A-9A which was time for Continental breakfast which was very limited(only toast and a few muffins, coffee and juice- not even cereal. Will never stay there again. TV log was not even right. You had to try to figure out which stations were assigned to which numbers. Poor experience
This is a bare bones hotel. It doesn't smell good, unless you like chlorine. There is no shampoo, and the plumbing works backwards (hot and cold water are reversed.) The continental breakfast consists of watered-down OJ, a few grocery-store doughnuts, and perhaps the world's weakest coffee.
