Let's just say that the pics of this hotel that are found online are very deceptive. Our room was awful. The air conditioner was terrible and we all had to sleep on top of the blankets because it was so hot. There was a sticky substance and red stains all over the carpet. We didn't feel comfortable walking on the...

I would never complain about the quality of a hotel as long as it's clean. This hotel was far from clean! The pool was repulsive. The room is not much better. It looks and feels gross. The front desk staff was ok. I would not stay here again. I have stayed at worse but this is definitely at the bottom...

Econolodge's are typically the lower end of the spectrum, but this one way outdid themselves. A very fair price, and an excellent breakfast menu. The staff is well trained and the hotel is in excellent shape. I highly recommend this one for the whole family.

Avoid this hotel at all cost. The maintenance is shoddy. The "breakfast"--if there's anything to be found but crumbs--is sparse. The couch in our room was broken. The slide on the pool was downright dangerous, leading to personal injury in our family--not the first that day nor in recent days--yet staff wasn't proactive enough to shut down a dangerous situation....

All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. The lobby and pool area were really clean. The breakfast was not what I thought it would be. If you like hard boiled eggs and cheese you will be fine.

I was a little disappointed when I first checked in as the adjoining rooms that I had been guaranteed were not available. This was very important to us because we were traveling with several children. To make matters worse, the receptionist could not find the 3rd reservation that I had made online. However, he was able to get our rooms...

Good location, close to food, shopping and entertainment. Unfortunately the room, especially the toilet needed cleaned. But for an older hotel not bad. Clean better and I would stay again. Good price also.

Took my family there for the weekend. The hotel is close by to the Rushmore mall and many restaurants. It seems like an old hotel which was renovated a few years ago. The moment I stepped into the lobby, there was no one there for at least a good 5 minutes or more. Request for extra amenities, you got to...

Once again we had the best time at the Econo Lodge, our room was super and very clean, and our pet also enjoyed his stay. We will be staying there again in June 2016. You just cannot beat the wonderful people who work there, they always make you so welcome, the breakfast is smaller during the off summer travel days...

Very nice accomodation near to shops and motorway. Very busy whilst we were there as there was a baseball competition going on nearby. However it was nice to see a lovely indoor poo and slide enjoyed by children. Plenty of parking.
