Clean, quite, convenient access with a nice full breakfast. Although the place was under renovations, they kept it clean. Staff went out of the way to be helpful. Will come again when visiting daughter.

This Econo Lodge is very small but is clean and quite convenient to Purdue's campus. The staff was not overly friendly but efficient. Limited TV stations -- no ESPN (husbands take note of that)However it is a good value for the price.

On the road, looking for a nice, clean place to stay? This will do it. While it could use some rehab here and there, the hotel was an inexpensive way to get a good night's sleep. Evening manager gave us a second floor room, but when he saw how much stuff we would have to walk upstairs, changed it to... More

This place needs a major overhaul. It doesn't smell very good, but you get used to it. The room was not sanitary. We used Clorox wipes to sanitize the bathroom. When I sat on the bed, the springs made noises (I know I've gained a few pounds lately, but I'm still under 200). The laminated TV viewing guide included channels... More

Unfortunately, I find the need to report that this was the worst hotel experience that my husband and I have ever experienced. We checked a few minutes before their normal check in time. When we got to our room we found out that this non-smoking hotel was just the opposite. The room was so badly filled with odors from smoking... More

We stayed here on the way to Chicago. The hotel was easy to find from the expressway. Unfortunately, a previous traveler had smoked in the non-smoking room. When I told the staff they immediately offered us another room but we were too tired to move. So, they told us how to make the air more comfortable. In the morning they... More

Cheap, cheap, cheap....but with it comes noise - the air conditioner kind of drowns it out. Over for the Purdue game and only place I could find for the night. Moved to the Sheraton the next day. Not much more I can say about this place.

I've stayed at nice hotels and much worse. It is what you would expect from the name. It was cheap and had zero amenities. If you just need a cheap place to stay for the night and a hot shower while you are visiting Purdue the Econo Lodge will fulfill that need.

I'm a Purdue grad and brought some friends down for the Purdue v. Michigan football game. This hotel brought our weekend down a notch. I am ashamed that I graduated from a university that has businesses that are so cut throat and our only there to profit off the students families and friends that are borrowing money from banks for...

This was the second time we stayed at this location, and will stay again. Very clean, good value, within walking distance of a Wendys and Taco Bell. Staff was very friendly and they were quick to help you with any thing you needed.
