Slight issue when checking in but was quickly resolved. Upon entering our room there was a slight odor, carpets need cleaning. We noticed holes in wall where previous occupants used tissues to plug the holes. The bathroom ceiling leaked around the light fixture when people in room above showered. No coffee packets for coffee maker and no coffee cups either.... More

Another surprise as Econo Lodge is typically only for late night arrivals. Located convenient to restaurants and just off the freeway. Adjacent to very nice and clean neighborhoods with little bunnies running everywhere.

Econo Lodge was just what we were looking for. We spent 5 nights there and couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We had a corner room on the 2nd floor. The room was super clean and David and the rest of the staff were constantly doing whatever they needed to do to make the guests feel welcome.We would not hesitate... More

We were from out of town and decided to stay here because it was our ABSOLUTE last choice, figured we could bear it for one night. We got there a couple hours early and asked if we could check in, they were VERY VERY rude and told us no because our room wasn't clean. We understood that, but the parking... More

Stayed here as we passed thru, wintery, spontaneous stop late evening. Will NEVER stay here again. Property made me question if Econolodge Corp office EVER visits their properties and/or reads any of these ratings and feedback. I'd love for the CEO of Econolodge to stay here on an "Undercover Boss" episode. Furniture was outdated, bathroom had permanent stains, carpet appeared... More

Well, let me first say, the facility isn't what it once was, whatever it was. That being said, it was an adequate hotel for one night. I used a coupon from one of the Iowa hotel books and received the room at a fair price, and pretty much got what I paid for. Nothing frill or fancy, just a great... More

Well, this was not what I had hoped for. It's a bit run-down, the place looks like it's seen better times for sure. The room was very dated, the linens and bedding were not in good shape at all. I am glad my wife wasn't with me because she would have not slept here.

They only gave three lumpy pillows a bed (king) and when I asked for more, they had none. Dirty floors, not even a bed cover, black mold in bathroom, the bathroom ceiling leaked on us, the night deal either was sarcastic, yelling all night, not worth it. Just spend the extra money for a nice place
