I usually stay at budget hotels at least 20 times a year.. My stay at this hotel was my best such experience. The room and lobby areas were extremely clean, and everything in the room operated properly and was in excellent condition. The staff was very attentive and enthusiastic. My thanks for a pleasant stay.

We stayed 4 nights at this lodge--part of a 4-week trip. It was an excellent choice. In our years of travel, this was one of thr cleanest, well-kept Econo Lodges we have ever stayed in. Also, very quiet. The managers were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this for an overnight or extended stay. Excellent value also. The... More

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.
