Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

For this location we were cost driven as we just needed a place to grab some sleep between two busy touring days. There were other similarly priced motels and since this was a chain, we expected a little bit better than what we got.
A well posted notice on the office entry door informed us that the water needed to be boiled. I asked the check-in agent why the notice was posted. She indicated there had been an unacceptable elevation of sulfur in the water that had already been addressed and they were waiting for a new inspection before removing the notice. We noticed the odor, did a quick wash up in the sink and went to bed. In the morning the sulfur smell was even greater and we opted to pass on taking a shower.
The room was clean and spacious though in need of a good painting. The tub we never used still had a sizable partially worn off product sticker on the face of the tub. The tub appeared to be at least a year old. There was no light in the entry "foyer" which was where hangers hung on an pole within the foyer. The lighting was poor in general, the mattresses were comfortable enough though very lightweight and easily slid on the box when you sat or lied down on them. There was a simple to use a/c heater unit and the Wi-fi was OK in our room. The breakfast was coffee, tea, Sunny-D, bread and bagels for toasting, mini muffins and mini buns and bananas. No comfortable place to eat it so take the tray from your room and bring it back to your room to eat.
In general the whole motel needs an update,if not an upgrade.

After reading some reviews, I was a little disappointed when this was the only available place to stay near New Paltz on Alumni Reunion weekend. But the welcome was warm, the room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was hot. The exterior belies the comfort of the interior rooms. And the continental breakfast in the office is a nice touch. No, its not a Ritz Carlton, but it is more than adequate.

Stayed at the Econo Lodge for 1 night for a weekend getaway in New Paltz. It's a nice enough place. There was a used towel in our bathroom. I guess they just forgot to take it for cleaning. Otherwise it was clean and quiet. We did hear next door chatting when we got there, but it was quiet at night. We didn't do the breakfast, but it's a tiny place. The woman at check in was very nice and helpful. I would think this would book quickly come foliage, so it's fine for a night and better than some others as I have read.

my room was clean, staff was helpful and friendly. This hotel is called Econo Lodge for a reason, breakfast was quite inadequate probably due to the space constraints give the hotel lobby and lack of common areas. this is a good place to stay if you are looking for a good value.

Last week we stayed in two rooms with a family of six persons. Rooms are good, clean and spacey. Fred the owner welcomed us very friendly and was helpful. I can really recommend this place for a stay if you don't have your expectations high.

Room Tip: Quiet and clean.
