This was a nice clean Hotel. With friendly staff. It may be older but has been nicely renovated and taken good care of. It is in a very nice neighborhood. Nothing fancy, but it is has everything that you need.

Slight issue when checking in but was quickly resolved. Upon entering our room there was a slight odor, carpets need cleaning. We noticed holes in wall where previous occupants used tissues to plug the holes. The bathroom ceiling leaked around the light fixture when people in room above showered. No coffee packets for coffee maker and no coffee cups either....

Another surprise as Econo Lodge is typically only for late night arrivals. Located convenient to restaurants and just off the freeway. Adjacent to very nice and clean neighborhoods with little bunnies running everywhere.

Econo Lodge was just what we were looking for. We spent 5 nights there and couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We had a corner room on the 2nd floor. The room was super clean and David and the rest of the staff were constantly doing whatever they needed to do to make the guests feel welcome.We would not hesitate...

Stayed here as we passed thru, wintery, spontaneous stop late evening. Will NEVER stay here again. Property made me question if Econolodge Corp office EVER visits their properties and/or reads any of these ratings and feedback. I'd love for the CEO of Econolodge to stay here on an "Undercover Boss" episode. Furniture was outdated, bathroom had permanent stains, carpet appeared...

Well, let me first say, the facility isn't what it once was, whatever it was. That being said, it was an adequate hotel for one night. I used a coupon from one of the Iowa hotel books and received the room at a fair price, and pretty much got what I paid for. Nothing frill or fancy, just a great...

Well, this was not what I had hoped for. It's a bit run-down, the place looks like it's seen better times for sure. The room was very dated, the linens and bedding were not in good shape at all. I am glad my wife wasn't with me because she would have not slept here.

This hotel was a desperation stop. We were tired and didn't know where the next hotel would be (2 exits up the road!) The room was dirty, the chairs stained, the sheets ripped. The fans were so noisy, they could not be used, including the one in the bathroom. Even for $72 a night it was overpriced. I have no...
