We stay here each year during the Clay Co. Fair and I LOVE that they finally updated the joint. We like the room size and now that there is new paint, carpet, and furnishings makes is a much better stay. The best upgrade they did was the linens! Great job on this, they are comfortable and much higher quality than... More

Average place to stay if your near Spencer, Iowa. Little older unit that could take a good updating. But close to a few nice restaurants, you won't go hungry. Breakfast is waffles and cold cereal. No hot stuff on the breakfast bar.

We enjoyed our stay here while in the area...We had reserved two rooms (one for us for 3 nights & one for our son/family for two nights). Upon arrival we talked to the staff about getting our son/family an adjoining room...and yes, the staff did this for us. The rooms were clean, we received clean towels every day, everybody on...

As a member of Choice Hotels, I have stayed at many of their brand motels over the years. Econo Lodges are their budget brand so when I showed up in Spencer, IA on a recent road trip, I wasn't expecting much. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised. This property was the old Plaza One motel but sharing the same building are... More

Hotel is older, but clean. Our room had some new paint, carpet and furnishings. Some of the bathroom ceiling tiles need replaced (water stained and mold). Good water pressure in the shower. Breakfast is a normal basic continental with waffle maker, toast, cereal, hard boiled eggs, egg patties, juice and coffee. Overall good stay and will stay here again because... More

The outside seems rundown and the halls are stained and smell terrible. The rooms are okay which was really the only reason we stayed. The service was rude and they were very short in answering questions. I will not be back, ever!

Have stayed at this location many times over the past 15 years or so. They redecorated a few years adding fridges to all rooms + microwaves to most. Also, the breakfast room has been enlarged and more selections added. Internet is also available upon request in the breakfast room. There is no pool, etc, but some rooms do have whirlpools....

Stayed this holiday season while traveling. The hotel was very nice overall. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Room had a microwave and fridge which we did not expect but was very handy. Nice flat screen tvs. Read the other reviews. Some staining in the hallway carpets but to be expected as they see the highest amount of traffic. Did... More
