The hotel has the lowest rate in town. Repainted all rooms with new mattresses carpet and bedding. Anyone who complains about a FREE breakfast not being up to there expectations needs to remember that before discounts are rooms are $65/night. If you want to specify the room type u want "away from smoking or on a specific floor. MAKE A...

Very disappointed...was to be "newly refurbished" and from observations had hardly started. Shower did not work, no stopper in sink, toilet unsafe to sit on. One party in our group requested their toilet be fixed because it was broken, only to be told there was no one available to fix it. We arrived at 3:30ish and they were aware our...

Way off the beaten path. Good for an overnight cheap hotel. Staff was nice but very confused at check in. Put us in a room then had to switch us because he thought the room may have been checked out to someone else. Says it was just remodeled. Not very well!

The receptionist tried to take a photo copy of my credit card and drivers lic. in case we trashed the room. Had to call the owner after much discussion how she wasn't. Was going to put us in a room on second or third "smoking floor". Magically had a room on the first floor after saying they were just down...

Stayed here because Sioux City was full and expensive. Good rate ok room, Breakfast was below average, they have a nice area for breakfast but were running out of syrup and would be nice if they added some eggs and a meat. They do have biscuits and gravy though. Check in lady was courteous and friendly. For the price everything...

Motel is old and smells of smoke even though they have non-smoking rooms. Furniture was basic and the beds were hard as rock. However, everything worked and the price was OK for what you got. Must say that the breakfast certainly left something to be desired. Only thing that was warm were the make your own waffles. Juice was like...

For the price, it was even still disappointing. For business/extended stay was able to stay here for 45 a night which was good because if I had paid anymore than that I would have been even more upset than I was already. Beds were uncomfortable, tossed and turned all night. And every website about the hotel said that it had...

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Le Mars for 2 nights in September 2014. The room was a fairly small standard American motel room. The furnishings and TV were quite dated. The bathroom was small. There was no separate reading light (away from the desk) or overstuffed chair. There was a fridge and a microwave and a small "coffee...

Every hotel in town was booked, this was it. It was dark, dirty and smelled of cigarette smoke. Even though we signed a slip stating we would not smoke, they would not have been able to tell if we did. First thing we did was checked the bed for clean sheets and lifted mattresses for bugs. Bedding and bed were...
