This Econo Lodge is very budget friendly and easy to find. The exterior is simple, but fairly well-kept. The halls smell like smoke, but our non-smoking room did not smell at all. The carpet, sheets - everything - was very clean. Bravo to the housekeepers! The rooms are not huge, but not uncomfortably small for our family of 4. Also,... More

We were traveling cross country camping when a major storm followed us along interstate 80 raining out our campsite. We headed to the nearest town - Princeton. We were delighted with the friendly staff and clean, reasonable accommodations. The room was quiet and had the amenities we needed.

Very reasonable and almost really clean. The bathroom shower curtain was stained and dirty. It might have been wine. The hair dryer didn't work. The bed was horrible. The first room was only one queen and I wanted two. The AC was working in there, but when she put us in the 2nd with 2 queen beds, she had to... More

Great service and very nice clean rooms. Very quiet not like other motels where you hear outside or other room noise. Will definitely stay again when traveling through. Didn't stay for breakfast but dining area was very clean.

We had a very good expierence here. We hit a deer around midnight and our truck was disabled. State Police drove us to this hotel. It was clean and had everything we needed. Nice breakfast and very friendly desk clerk. Wish I had asked his name. Spent only about eight hours here but still all good. They seem to care.

We arrived rather late in the evening and were charged 70 some dollars. I thought this a bit expensive. Hallways smelled as if the guests in other rooms were cooking with strong spices. Not what I want to smell when I enter a business establishment to spend the night. Rooms were clean enough and beds were clean, although bedding was... More

This is the best hotel under $ 70 I have ever stayed at! The rooms were clean and remodeled as is the rest of the hotel. Anytime I am in Princeton, IL with family again I will definitely stay here again. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

There's nothing that fancy about this motel...the name says it all. I called around and found that the rate at the Econo Lodge was lower than other motels in the immediate area and my total bill came to just under $59. That seems like a lot for what I received, but I don't think I'd have had much better accommodations... More

Nice Hotel, but the hallways stink with the smell of stale smoke. The stay was ok otherwise. This hotel was not worth the $80 I paid to stay. The beds were clean and I slept alright. I would not stay here again though just because of the strong smell of stale smoke.
