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

In town for the Glass Blown Open 2013. My single king room on the West side of building was satisfactorily clean. The walls in the room were quite thin. I showered mostly in the evening and the water pressure and heat were fine. I saw no bugs. CRT TV. Breakfast is indeed paltry as others have consistently mentioned. Convenient location... More

I admit my expectations were not very high, based upon some of the reviews here. I only needed to stay one night so I decided to go ahead and book it. Check-in was efficient and I was very pleasantly surprised to find a room that was actually quite nice. It was quiet and felt fresh and clean--not a fingerprint or... More

We had been on a 2 week traveling vacation and had very good experiences with other econolodges country-wide. We made reservations online where we figured we would stop for the night. Check in was quick with attentive service. Our room was clean, but furnished with what appeared old and very dated furniture. The A/c worked well, thank goodness! But it... More

I did not like this place. Yes its cheap but is that really worth dealing with spiders and pill bugs? Not in my opinion. When we turned on the both sinks a spider came out before the water. It was disgusting. The shower was dirty, I turned it on and it made this grinding noise that was so loud. The... More
