Price is right, room smelled good. Looks like it was recently updated. Nice bathroom fixtures. Beds are very comfortable and the pillows are amazing! Big micro fridge and microwave in the room. Close to restaurants also.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 March 2017

Very nice hotel comfortable beds and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The manager saw I smoked and gave me a room that also had a door to the outside. I would recommend this hotel. I travel for my work and stay at many hotels this is among the best.

My wife and I stayed one night while attending a family wedding. Staff was friendly and accommodating, the lobby and room were clean, the beds were comfortable. TV was standard def, but we didn't watch it much. Hit breakfast was light. Good waffles, yogurt, cereal were fine. For the price, you can't beat it. Would recommend it to my friends.

My wife and I were heading home (east) from a trip out west, and spent the night at this Econo Lodge. We were both VERY impressed with the accommodations, food (breakfast), and friendliness of the staff! This well-managed place clearly outperformed many of the higher-rated chains we often stay at, and did so at a much more reasonable price! We...

We were driving through some nasty spring weather and heard that I-70 was closed ahead. Checking reviews, we called ahead to see if we could make reservations. Good thing we did - the interstate actually close right at Hays! As you can imagine, the motel got lots of phone calls and lots of people looking for rooms. They handled this...

I needed a hotel to stop and rest. I saw an Econolodge and stopped. I had just used another one in Indiana. My rest was well deserved. I had no problems with my stay and guest room satisfied my needs.

I always ask for a room on the top floor so no one is stomping overhead. We traveled on a Tuesday, so the motel did not have a lot of guests. It was perfectly quiet and had all that we needed to get a good night's sleep. It was clean and had all the usual amenities.

Driving through and needed a place to stay. Price was great. Room was clean. Hotel is partly updated. Breakfast was surprisingly good for the price of the hotel. As a woman, I appreciated the excellent outside lighting. Nice and bright. Also appreciated that the rooms were indoor, another nice feature. Friendly staff. Perfect for what we needed!!!
