Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge Inn & Suites at the Convention Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"No entry light(burnt out). TV remote did not work(dead batteries)."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We have stayed here twice. The first time was better than the second. If we had been staying more than one nite the second visit, we would have just asked for batteries for the remote. We told the front desk when leaving. Hopefully they got it taken care of for the next occupant. We’ll see you again.
