Stayed here due to my work during the last week of July for 1 night. The front desk staff woman was nice. The room was nice. Bed was nice. The shower head needed to be changed out as it was spraying out where it was connected, leaving less than ideal water pressure. The pool/hot tub area was closed due to...

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. Check in was fine, friendly staff. The building is old and in need of updating. The pool was out of service as the pipes broke a few days earlier. The free breakfast included a waffle maker... this kitchen appliance was probably the highlight of the facility. I guess the price is...

I stay in Choice properties on a regular basis and this is by far the worst I have encountered. The parking lot was dirty, the corridors smelly and the rooms were clean but not great! Towels were thin. I have stayed at Econo in other places and enjoyed the property--not this one! Internet was so-so. Back "security" door to property...

It was our last night of a long emergency road trip & already into the evening hours, so didn't want to pay big bucks for a nicer motel. We've had good luck with other Econolodges in the past. It looked good enough from the street & the lobby appeared clean & tidy. The check-in lady was very pleasant & efficient....

We pre-paid for 4 nights and notified them in advance that we would be checking in around 3 am. When we arrived, they could not get the computer to accept our checkin, but it showed us as a "no-show". They asked us to contact the website we used to reserve the room for corrections. They never responded to me. Upon...

Founds the Econo Lodge to be an efficiently run hotel with good service and nicely prepared rooms. The continental style breakfast was well thought out and appropriate for the traveler. Good parking and affordable. Most of all, the folks there are friendly and helpful.

Right near Walmart in the south of town, lots of parking for big trucks and horse trailers. Clean, well serviced double queen beds, smallish bath, very clean. Helpful front desk staff. The feature that the kids enjoyed most was the pool and hot tub area. After a day in the heat and dust, it was a pleasure to relax in...

It's not fair to call America's budget chain motels "average". Try traveling to Europe and you'll find out that the "average" budget chain motel in the U.S. is pretty dang good! And, thus it is with this Econo Lodge. In this case "average" is a high compliment. My rating for this Econo Lodge is "average", but that means GOOD! because...

I have stayed at this motel twice. Both times my room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and courteous. Very Professional. Night staff made me fill welcome and the morning staff asked me how my stay was. The breakfast was more than I expected. Plenty to eat. Was restocked twice while I was eating. I travel regularly and I...
