We have stayed here several times as our half way stop driving from Minnesota to Houston, TX. It has always been exceptionally clean and staff is very friendly. Economy lodgings with great price. Can't beat it and has continental breskfast.

The motel overall looks a bit shabby but for the price it was fine. Vanity was tiny making it very difficult to accommodate the things travelers need. We appreciated the reasonably priced and convenient laundry and the manager was very pleasant.

After 11 hours of driving, I was tired and just wanted a gold night's sleep, and this was the place for it. It was clean and well protected from the noise of nearby I35. The host was most gracious, helpful, and genuinely interested in the well-being of his guests. Restaurants and other shopping were nearby, and the motel was just... More

Building doesn't look "nice" on the outside (no landscaping, some rot in places), but the owner was so nice and accommodating and the lobby, breakfast area, room was clean. Everything worked, bath drained well, no leaking from faucets or toilet. Bed had decent sheets and pillows. We had a nice but worn recliner in our room for viewing TV, 1... More

If you prefer to keep your motel accomodations @ a reasonable price - yet - still stay in a clean comfortable room - this is the PLACE!! Our mattress was very comfortable & the pillows were too!! Our room was great & this place was in a quiet area. I'd definitely recommend!!!

Owner was quite pleasant and accomodated our request for a rollaway bed. Room was comfy, clean and came with free wi-fi, and a basic breakfast to get us going. It's not the Ritz, but the Econo Lodge had very reasonable rates, I thought.

My wife and I were traveling to KC from Oklahoma City and, since we were leaving after work, wanted to break the drive into shorter stretches. The Econo Lodge served our purpose very well. The room was inexpensive and clean. The bed was fine, the shower good. The breakfast was typical with pastries and cold cereal but we usually prefer... More

First off, let me say the room itself was very clean. Except the "SHEETS". When I turned back the bedspread and blanket, to my horror, the sheets were wrinkled and full of hair. Now I don't know about anyone else, but I sure don't want to sleep on someone else's dirty sheets. There seemed to be only the manager running... More

I apologize for the experience you had at our hotel. According to the notes left by the manager, who changed your sheets, there was indeed a little bit of hair content on the sheets, but describing it as "full of hair" is quite exaggerated. If that was the case, the entire bedding would need to be changed as hair would... More

I travel a lot and use the choice reward program... I try to avoid Econo lodges because... well most I've been in are 2 star or less. I booked my room knowing I'd be in late, traveling with kids who would be tired. Wanted to get them to the room really fast. Got in about 10:30pm stood at the front... More
