We stayed in this motel several times back when it was the Dunes Motel. It was a place we enjoye,d and we hoped that when it became an Econo Lodge, that would not change. They have renovated, so the furniture in the rooms is newer and quite nice. Nothing fancy, but nice. They have also added rooms; the wing in... More

You can hear everything! From road traffic to neighbors TV. It was a neat room with wood floors and spacious area to get ready, even 2 sinks! Close to gas stations, we walked to a restaurant for supper, just in the middle of everything you need. Housekeeping came in about 9ish, a bit early, but we were done.

Would stay here again, no doubt. Pretty decent sized rooms and liked the large sink area for getting ready in the morning. Only small complaint would be that the room next door had a barking dog, but it stopped early enough in the evening so didn't disrupt sleep.

My husband and I have stayed here 3 or 4 times. It is reliable, very clean, quiet and provided a good nights rest. We have stayed at the higher priced hotel too, but have come back to this one. Better value over-all.

As you drive in you see a place that you don't expect to see in Valentine. The hotel staff from the desk to the house keeping were very pleasant. Breakfast staff kept everything full.

We walked in on a Monday and got a room with no problem. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. The #1 restaurant in town on Trip Advisor is walking distance. I got it to go and ate it at the picnic tables in the hotel courtyard. The breakfast is above par. Perfect stop for the night.

Made reservations online for a single King room but had to call the hotel to ensure the availability of a pet friendly room.

I want to apologize for not meeting your expectations. Unfortunately when you make those reservations on a 3rd party site, it does not show up you have a pet. You did reserve a king bed but it was not a pet room, so when you said you had a pet all we HAD left was a room with 2 beds... More

Room was clean, simple and comfortable with a great king bed. The highlight of this place was the fabulous breakfast... sausage biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, make your own waffles , toast and condiments , cereal, juice and coffee. Not crowded. We left fully powered for the day's driving.
