Econo Lodge City Square

Second time stayed at Econo Lodge. Hotel situated very well in Melbourne CBD which was satisfactory to go to the AFL and NRL football as well as eating amenities. Policies had changed since last visit in as much, as although accommodation bill already paid, they insisted on a $250 bond debited to a Credit Card to cover any damage or such which I thought was a bit steep. This amounted to $500 as I had booked two rooms. Then it took approximately 4-5 days to recredit account.

Econolodge City Square Melbourne

Great location, rooms could do with a refurb. We were directed to the wrong room originally - should have been a queen bed plus a single and we were given a double plus a single quite cramped and very old fashioned room and fittings. Spoke to the desk clerk and we were given a much better room, queen bed plus a fold out couch, newer furnishings and new clean bathroom. Bottom Line - Do not settle with what you are given if it does not match the photos etc.

Convenient, comfortable and good value

Although dated in decor and amenities, we found it in the good old fashioned comfortable category, with pretty much everything we required. Who needs a fancy entry lounge when all one needs is the comfort of good beds, a basic kitchenette, iron, and clean and functional bathroom? The big plus was location in the very heart of the city of Melbourne.

quick weekend trip

Central location with friendly staff. Perfect for a weekend get away! Double glass is helpful in blocking out tram noise but you can still hear them and the funky bunny tends to play until pretty late on a saturday night! You'll know once you go :)
