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.

Real rating 4 and a 1/2 circles. Back again for the second year in a row as last years stay was great and we were pleased. We arrived a night early from our reserve date. I was very surprised when I walked in and was greeted with my name and a friendly "your early" comment. Wow! Check in went very... More

I stopped at a different hotel to stay with my family and pet. It turns out this is the only hotel that accepts pets. Decided to look at the pet room before staying, the room was clean and smelled great for a pet and people room. So we decided to stay and take two rooms. What I shouldve checked w... More

As noted in the previous reviews, this Econolodge is a step up from the average Econolodge motel/hotel throughout most of the country (I've stayed in an unfortunate few). The rooms are very clean and all the staff / management are very friendly & helpful. Even though the towels are barely above what you receive after gym class in a public... More

I've stayed at the Princeton Econolodge several times, mostly when making trips from the nearby Amtrak station. It's not a full-service luxury hotel, but it's a step above most budget properties. The Econolodge is located just south of I-80 and about a mile from downtown Princeton (from which there are several Amtrak trains daily to and from Chicago). There is... More

Just stayed here and will definitely stay here again.The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and the location perfect. The hotel is close to a wide variety of stores and restaurants. Couldn't beat the price either.

Here we are back in Princeton just over a year after our last visit. This time for the birth of our grandson. :) Last years motel stay (at a different motel) did not go that well so we were kind of leery. The front desk staff was friendly and very efficent. Check in was painfree and quick. Cost: $411.32 check... More

I've been to this motel about 5 different times. To me, it's a nice place to sleep. It has several restaurants near by. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Friendly staff, also!
