Me, my daughter and husband stayed for almost the entire month in January 2017. The rooms were clean and beds were fairly comfortable. Was not impressed with housekeeping. Me and my daughter stayed in the room all day while my husband worked and housekeeping never offered to change our sheets the entire time we were there. I had to ask...

After reading some of the reviews I was somewhat hesitant but thought it was worth checking out given the price spread of hotels in Olathe. Customer service was great. Kidisit at the front desk was sweet, helpful & smiling at check in & the owner didn't hesitate to let us see a room before we made our decision to stay....

The room itself was big. But the remodeling was inconsistent and it smelled of mildew. I think in this day and age hotels and motels should have central air and not window units. It reminded me of church camp back in the early 80s. When I took a shower the water went from hot to cold to burning hot because...

I checked in went to my room it was no bigger than my car. It was clean. After being there maybe 30 minutes the TV and internet went out, I called the front desk and was informed that they were hoping it would come back on later that night. I am sitting at the desk by the window I saw...

Staff is helpful and obiliging, Hotel still needs some updating and fixing up, new paint is all I seen, and whoever painted did a sloppy job with paint splattered on furniture and doors sills, floor. Rooms not clean as we found some small toys left over from who knows last visit. Carpets dirty, thought after reading reviews it would be...

My room at Economic Lodge was small and not very exciting, but it was clean and neat. It was frustrating not having an iron or hair dryer in the room, but it did have a microwave and little fridge. I guess that's why it's "Econo" Lodge!

The staff was great. The room was not quite finished but the desk clerk gave me keys so when I came back later I could just go to my room. The hotel was easy to find and the room was very clean. The A/C works very well.

I had made a reservation with the request for an upstairs room if there is an elevator. There was no elevator but they gave me any upstairs room anyway. No reason given. I tried to connect to internet while checking in. I could tell that the router or modem or both needed to be reset. I told the lday how...

After reading the previous reviews, I still decided to stay here, and I was pleasantly impressed. Although they are in the middle renovations, I still don't have a complaint. Front Desk was very friendly, and helpful. My husband and I own our trucking company and are in a different hotel almost every night, and this hotel was far better than...
