Great for a short stay if you are on the road for long periods of time.
We stopped here for an over night on the way to the 1000 Islands. The room was clean. The sheets were clean, but had a few small stains on them. TV was old as well. I enjoyed my stay overall.
We were visiting Syracuse for a game but didnt want to pay for Sheraton or other nearby hotel for an arm and a leg, so Econolodge was exactly what we were looking for. It was really cheap and not too far away (7-8 min drive), basically all we needed.
The motel was well maintained and in a handy location. Nice grassy areas. Staff were friendly and attentive. Didn't care for the banana nut muffins and it would've been nice to see more variety in the breakfast food. But the coffee was delicious. We were able to bring our dog too.
We went to visit family in a nearby town and stayed at the Econo Lodge in Dewitt. We've stayed at Econo Lodges in other towns and always were pleased and we certainly weren't disappointed this time. Very clean, nice sized room, friendly staff. Free donuts, toast, juice & coffee for a quick morning bite to eat before heading out for the day. No complaints here!

Let me say first that I wasn't super impressed upon driving up to the place, it has the look of a roadside motel. However, when we saw the room my fears were allayed. And honestly, it was nice to have the car just outside the room - certainly made packing/unpacking easier and more convenient.
The hotel is just off busy Erie Blvd between a neighborhood and a strip mall/fast food restaurant. Given that however, our room was quiet and road noise was far enough away to not be noticeable. Even though we sometimes came in quite late, it felt safe and secure.
Our room was clean, nicely appointed and even smelled good (clean and fresh). The ac worked great too - yep, one even needs ac in Syracuse occasionally! A hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and free local phone calls were nice little "extras". We stayed four days visiting family and were quite pleased with our stay.
The hotel staff were pleasant and always gave us extra towels when we asked. They offered a complementary breakfast but we always ended up elsewhere and never took advantage of it.
The location (close to Fayetteville, Manlius and Pompey) in Dewitt was extremely convenient for us. It's great for shopping too - Wegmans is right around the corner for good, fresh foodstuff and Shoppingtown Mall is next door. The LL Bean Outlet is also just down the road. While there were less expensive hotels at Carrier Circle, I think we saved on gas (and driving time) by being close to where we wanted to be.
If I had a complaint, maybe it would be that the towels were really cheap feeling and there never seemed to be enough. That's it.
Good location, good price (no surprises), and a good, clean room. We'll definitely go back when we're visiting the area again.
