Towels were wet and yellowed, brown stains on the bed cover, stains on the walls. If you go, please check the room before you accept it. After spraying a can of lysol, and turning the Air on, the...

We don't like to spend a lot of money when we are traveling since we arrive late and leave early so are often forced to make tough decisions between budget hotels. Econolodge in Newton is a good choice. Yes, it's older but the room was clean and the beds were great. The staff was very nice!

The hotel is in bad shape. The door to the bath was rotted. The hallway carpet have wear holes in it. The breakfast was coffee and toast. The hot breakfast part was crusty gravy and biscuits. We used the travel coupon book from the freeway and they only offered the $68 rate as there were no rooms left at the... More

Had a problem with choice hotels booking me the wrong room size and putting me at a different hotel. I came and spoke to Mrs Hems and she was completely helpful and gave me the room size I needed, and took into consideration that I am a platinum member of choice rewards and gave us a room immediately. Plus her... More

I usually stay 10 days and I have found my stay very enjoyable, Hema and Raj the owners are always very accommodating for anything you need, all you need to do is ask and they will make sure all is...

Ms Hems and her whole staff go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure all of her visitors have a fabulous stay in Newton. They Will keep the breakfast up late if necessary they will fix whatever you need if you have special needs. You are a true person not just a reservation. Love the whole staff... More

Owners were there almost all the time and were very responsive to our needs. Rooms were freshly painted and clean. Rooms were also quiet and free from road noise. All staff were friendly and courteous. Two very good eating places were within walking distance.

Stayed at this motel in July. Two groups traveling so we had the opinion on two rooms. Great location, close to interstate and restaurants. Breakfast could use better attention to keeping it stocked. Could be better but hey it is a free breakfast. The rooms are a problem. Halls smelled heavily of smoke and the rooms need remodeling. 6 items... More

We paid $ 102 for a room that was in the $$ budget motel range. Older property in walking distance of restaurants. Our room was tidy and well-supplied, Internet was speedy. Hair dryer worked which tells me housekeeping cared. We were late for breakfast but management left it open for weekends. It was inadequate (no yogurt) but still enough to... More
