The previous reviews of this facility are somewhat uneven so I wasn't sure what to expect. The bottom line is that if you are travelling with a pet and looking for a reasonable place for the night, then this place fits the bill. Our room was on the second floor which meant we had to haul everything up the stairs.... More

This hotel has a decent reviews, so we booked it from Hotwire while we were at a baseball tournament in Austin. When we got there at four in the afternoon, they said we had booked a smoking room. Nowhere in any of the reservation did I find it saying we had booked a smoking room, but they said that was... More

The first impression of the hotel it's not bad at all. Appeared well kept and recently renovated. New flat screen tv in the breakfast area and in the foyer. Then just turn your head to see the gaping hole in the ceiling tiles from..a water leak? We got room 137, this place should be shut down if all off the... More

Very friendly people and quite accomodating. This hotel was just what we were looking for...clean and comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again. A great value for the money. We were pleased to see this hotel does allow dogs for a small additional fee.

I usually avoid Econo Lodges but this one had good reviews and it was late and I was driving in an hours long rainstorm so gave it a try. Yes, the owner is very friendly and willing to help. Looks like a turnaround situation is underway but there were certain things that should be taken care of like the non-patterned... More

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
