A older motel with well maintained grounds and rooms with a very nice front desk. Our room (two double beds) had a granite shower, lovely molding and was well decorated. However, the name Economy rings true. The room was so small, we could barely move (2 adults 1 child). The desk/vanity was so small it barely fit our laptop. No... More

We were wintering in Arizona and driving north. We planned for my husband to drive our truck further north to our home in Portland, Oregon to take care of some things, while I would rent a car in Los Banos and drive west to visit my 89 year old mother in San Jose while he was taking care of business....

We choose this hotel because it was on the road between SF and the Yosemite. We have a warm welcome from the owner despite our late arrivals We had two conformatable queen beds, a microwave and a mini fridge and the shower was recent. The only two drawbacks were -a noisy AC -a "so-called" breakfast apple + a piece of... More

My husband and I stayed there for one night. I had checked Trip Advisor as I always do, and this Economy Inn has been given the #1 hotel in Los Banos rating. Using AARP discount, the price was $55, so I booked online through Priceline. The outside is very attractive, and has lots of live plants around. The owner was... More

I organized a business trip to stay originally at, The Best Western Anderson Inn. However I immediately asked for my money back after I seen (disgusting critters) ROACHES! So we traveled a little further and ended up at, Economy Inn. I didn't pay much, so didn't expect much! However the owners made our trip short & sweet. Very clean, friendly... More

We stayed here a week ago on our outbound trip and enjoyed it well enough that we pushed ourselves to make to Los Banos on our return to the Bay Area. The owner, Chris, comes from a family of hostelers. His attention to detail and tasteful redesign of the adequately sized 1940s rooms has turned this into a charming stop... More

For $50. per night it was acceptable. The bed was comfortable and the room was somewhat rundown however for a basic small room was ok and the tv had enough stations on it.. Room 15 = The shower was tiny, the tiny bathroom exhaust noisy. The reason that we stayed here over other hotels in Los Banos was because of... More

Economy Inn, Los Banos If you are on I-5 in the vicinity of Santa Nella and looking for a good motel, you’d do well to drive 6 miles east, out of your way to Los Banos on CA State 152 to this motel. We considered ourselves lucky to land there in this remodeled 1920s auto court, although only an octogenarian... More

Based upon prior experience in roadside motels off the 5 - rundown, fleas, loud, smelly - this little spot in Los Banos was a pleasant surprise. Not a chain experience, but a family run, old style motel. Very clean, updated, quiet rooms, with original tiled bathrooms and real wood doors that offer a certain quaint charm. Even had a small...
