Been here several timesover the last 5-10 years. We return because they are clean, pet friendly, and the price is good. The mattresses (and the place in general) is getting a little worn, but still adequate.

I chose this hotel because the Motel 6 got some bad reviews. It is much nicer than a Motel 6 and cost about $40 more. It is located on the very north of town. I had to back track over a mile through town ( past the motel 6) to get on the highway to Death Valley

Jellybean (Cute handle?) Thank you for your review. Hope you enjoyed magnificent Death Valley National Park. I have been there at least 7 times. Don't mind going back either !!

We stayed here for one night after experiencing a vehicle failure whilst camping in the desert and awaiting a verdict from the auto shop. The room rates were good, the rooms clean and more than adequate. The breakfast was generous and the staff were helpful and friendly. We were permitted to check out of the rooms an hour later than...

The hotel was quite clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The downside: the mattress was hard (like a box spring) and not very comfortable, which is why I always bring along my Thermarest as a backup. The shower head was fine for a short person, but made taking a shower for a taller person somewhat of a... More

Rekha1, Owner at Econo Lodge Inn & Suites, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind review. Mattresses, shower, shelf location etc. have to be done based on with a person of average height and weight, in mind. It is not uncommon, for some of our guests to bring their own pillows and other personal items. These personal items allow our guests to personalize their stay with us. Seems, like you... More

The room was extremely clean. The bathroom was very small. Basic amenities. Wi-Fi worked. The staff at the front desk was very nice - both at check-in and check-out. Breakfast was basic - waffles and oatmeal. The oatmeal was all gone before we ate though. Very basic motel but very clean.

She will start another batch, and it will be ready in no time. In fact, our oats come from Canada. We made sure they did not come from... More

Econo Lodge, what else can you say. The rooms were clean and the staff hospitable. During my stay the area was experiencing a beetle infestation.

This is not upscale lodging and the rating of very good reflects the fair price and value received. The room had a microwave and fridge and was clean. Breakfast was basic. The Wifi wasn't reliable.
