We had stayed in the same building several years ago and hated the experience. We saw that it had become Econo Lodge and since it was the closest motel to my families home, we decided to try it again. We had a room with a King size bed. It was very comfortable and also clean. The toilet was a little... More

We booked this hotel for one night to sleep only while travelling onto the Black Hills of SD. We did not need anything fancy - just a clean place to sleep. It is sort of scary looking as you pull in - and the driveway has potholes, etc. It is dated inside and out. We cannot complain - we simply... More

Was wanting to stay at Holiday Inn but it was full. This looked affordable. Located in a bad area, not close to where I needed to be- off by itself. Old buildings and lots of old cars beside it, and a strange house is next to it with lots of cars. Building is really in need of updating. Has strange... More

Okay, I was tired after a long drive. I disputed the dog policy, saying that additional charges hadn't been mentioned when I booked the hotel. The manager got very angry, saying that all hotels charged for dogs and that the charges were mentioned on the Econo-lodge website (both untrue). I mentioned that I would post a review about this on... More

We needed a place to pull over for the night and spotted this Econo Lodge right off I-90. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel and the very affordable rate. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful, and even went so far as to call us after we left because we had forgotten an item in our... More

This is an old hotel that didn't smell musty but definitely had wear and tear in the room I stayed in. Bed and pillows were comfortable, price was right and was very quiet. No blow dryer in bathroom and no alarm clock. Most people use their cell phones but it is nice to tell the time when you wake up... More

This motel is great! It's clean and affordable. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Don't miss this motel! We almost did. We are so glad we found it. It's a little bit out of the city but only mins away. I highly recommend it!
