This was a terrible hotel. They could not give the AARP discount because "our machine is broken". The hallway smelled of urine and stall smoke. Beds were extremely uncomfortable. Room was not very clean. The only bright spot was the breakfast, it was nice. The clerk told us that we had to sit in the breakfast area and could not... More

During our cross country trip with 2 dogs and a baby, I had made reservations at this Econo Lodge because of the price and decent reviews. Driving up the property is kind of in the middle of a bunch of abandoned looking buildings, and the exterior is a little run down. However, once we walked in to the hotel I... More

Something about Econo lodge in the Midwest. They are all good. Cheap, friendly, clean and good. In the west they seem to downgrade and not be a good experience. We have stayed in 4 of these on this trip and have been pleased each time.

Motel is close to the highway next to the off-ramp (but far enough removed so that traffic noise was non-existant). The town is a couple of miles away and the sidewalks are rolled up at 5pm. However, this older re-incarnated establishment is a very pleasant surprise. The room was very modern, super-clean, well-appointed and had a very comfortable bed with... More

This is obviously a third or fourth reincarnation of a lodging establishment on the west end of Austin, MN. Don't let the exterior discourage you. The interior is well maintained, the room was spacious, management was friendly and we were well satisfied. Ask for a room on the parking lot side, the walls are a bit thin and you get... More

Arrived tried and hungry after being unable to find a room in Clear Lake, IA (at all) or Albert Lea, MN (for less than $ 90 including tax). Manager was pleasant. Place was not crowded but they put me in a room that reeked of dog urine with badly stained carpet despite the fact that I was traveling without a... More

Stayed on a Friday. Smooth check in, courteous staff. The location cannot be beat however breakfast was a disappointment after staying at 2 Super 8's along our trip. Room was clean and decorating typical of a moderately priced motel chain. All in all a good experience. Would not hesitate to stay again.

It's a very nice room I found, with microwave and 'fridge, though without upper freezer. It had room for 3 people with king size bed. Extra pillows, and heat was already on! Nice staff at check-in, nice renovations. No pool which was fine with me.

Doing a drive by. Not much to look at from the outside, but inside was ok. If you just need a bed and cup if coffee in the morning, this should do. The faint smell of curry was limited to the room behind the check in desk, so do not be alarmed

This hotel is starting to age and will need a facelift soon, but the room was okay and furnished with a fridge, microwave, and recliner. The outside of the building is starting to look rough too (it doesn't help that the gas station next door is out of business). The staff was friendly, and the room was clean. There was... More
