The Good
In the reviews used for the analysis, the hotel received many positive reviews. The reviews praised the clean, comfortable rooms, the good value, the helpful staff, the good location, and the waffle maker at breakfast.

Although it was commonly noted that the rooms were very basic, they were also reviewed to be very clean and comfortable.

Many guests felt that the price for the accommodations was fair. One guest said "If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, this is it!"

The staff were praised by many for being very friendly and helpful.

The location close to downtown Huntsville was a positive for many guests. Those who were staying at the Econo Lodge as they passed through to Algonquin Park liked the hotel's proximity to the highway.

While many guests were disappointed in the selection of food at the free breakfast, some guests were very pleased with the do-it-yourself waffle station, providing warm waffles for breakfast.

The Bad
While many of the reviews used in this analysis were positive, there were some complaints. These included a poor selection at breakfast, noise in the hallways, and steep prices during peak season (July - September).

Some guest reviewers loved the waffle station, but most guests who commented on the breakfast were disappointed in the selection and lack of sitting room. One guest said "We thought the breakfast was sparse, and the eating area was very small."

There were some complaints about the noise in the hotel. One guest said β€œThe interior walls and room doors were quite thin. It was easy to hear children running up and down the hall.”

Overall, many guests thought the hotel was a good value. However, some guests thought it was overpriced. One guest said the room was "overpriced by approx. $30 probably due to it being the last Canadian long weekend of the season.” Another guest who thought it was expensive, but said "it is all relative to the area (Muskoka is expensive)." Peak season in Huntsville typically runs from July to mid-September.

"Overall, a pleasant stay."
"My girlfriend and I stayed at the Econolodge in Huntsville for three nights. This budget friendly facility met our needs. Aside from a noticeable accumulation of dead bugs in some of the ceiling lights, which I alerted the staff to, it is a clean comfortable hotel in a very good location, within walking distance of Fairy lake."

"OK , but only for a one night stay"
"Front desk personnel friendly and helpful. Room (two doubles) was spacious,but bedsheets on one bed looked dingy, and covering blanket worn and tired looking. Basic toiletries, with no coffee maker in room. No concerns re outside noise. But don't expect much for breakfast here ... advertised as Continental, choice is very limited and very much Econo class offerings."
