I stay at this hotel frequently. Rooms are better than expected in some cases if you get a recently renovated one. Has pool, weight room, office nook, large continental breakfast area. Staff is friendly. Great Filipino restaurant next door.

Econo Lodge is always kind of a question mark so I researched this hotel thoroughly before booking. I was still kind of skeptical. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is clean and nice, the staff is pleasant and the pool and hot tub are heavenly. The bed is super comfy and the linens were nice. The room is a... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit mildewy, but not bad. The location is great, as was the front desk staff! We made a quick stop for the breakfast - it was nothing to brag about, but still a nice quick meal. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a good place to stay. The price was right and breakfast was included. We went up for a wedding so this was just a place to sleep for one night. You can tell that the place is old but it has been decently kept up. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were great.

The cost of the room was to high for what you get. Looks good from outside however the 70's called and they want there carpets drapes and bed spreads back. We stayed because of location but will not stay again I could put up with it being old and worn out for $69.

We stayed here for two nights and several things impressed me. 1. the condition of the pool and hot tub room. Well maintained, clean and spacious. 2. The breakfast area. this was the biggest such room I have ever encountered and was very tastefully decorated. Certainly not an afterthought. There were some deadspots with the internet and I understand that... More

I chose this hotel based on location, and because they will let you stay with your pet. My daughter and I were in Calgary for a horse show and initially wanted a kitchenette. When we went to our room, it was located adjacent to the parking lot and predictably smelled like smoke (lots of people smoking outside their rooms so... More
