I was looking for an economical hotel to catch some zzz’s while driving across country and this fits the bill. Nothing fancy but clean. The staff were friendly. The hotel was quiet and I had no issues. If making that long drive across Kansas I would stay here again

I think this hotel is a good place to stay while traveling through Kansas. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean. The beds are really comfortable. Breakfast is average. For the cost it's a good value. Another convenience is you can walk next door to Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steak Burgers. .

We travel from Arkansas to Colorado a few times each year and have found the Econo Lodge in Hays, Kansas to be a good low cost, clean and convenient hotel for our overnight on these trips. They are pet friendly with a large dog relief area with complimentary pickup bags behind the hotel. It is well lit, parking is easy,...

I was driving to Florida with my 9 pound dog and stopped at the Econolodge in Hays, Kansas. Not only was the room reasonable, the staff were very friendly and helpful. My dog was welcomed and a park was recommended. It was one of the best experiences I've had on my travels. I hope to stay again!

Staff is pleasant, rooms are clean, the place is not overpriced and there is a nice grass area and park behind the hotel for dog walks...what's not to like about any of that. Close access to I-70 but not too close - no highway noise.

We stopped at this Econo Lodge en route to Denver. We used our reward points from Choice Hotels, so this was a free night for us. We had an excellent experience. Check in was quick and easy, and the room was clean and comfortable. It's a no frills hotel, but exactly what we needed for a single night stay.

The Econo Lodge is just like the name. It was clean, safe and a good location at a good price. No pool or exercise room, but breakfast was adequate and on one side is an Arbys and on the other Freddys (semi fast food). Easy access to I-70. Would stay again when just using as a place to sleep.
