We love the econolodge as it serves as a perfect way point between KS and CO. Rooms are always clean, beds are comfortable. Furniture and fixtures need some improvement as the past two times we had either a crack in the sink or a rip in the chair, but we don't come here for perfect furniture. We stay here for... More

The check in person was very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Tub drain was broken but they came up to fix it soon after I told them about it. The location was perfect, right off the highway. There is a steak house several doors down that has fabulous food. I would stay there again.

It is absolutely amazing how the simplicity of this place really satisfies. We are a family that travels cross country from coast to coast every year. We usually stay in suites at La Quinta Inns (High Quality, fully rebranded ones) throughout the country. This econo lodge was clean, simple and gave us a proper rest. Beds very comfortable and spacious.... More

First, I was over charged for the three rooms that I had reserved, and since I prepaid, I was told that there was nothing that could be done (I believe that I was talking to the owner). The hotel was dirty and badly in need of repair. There was no closet in our rooms, the draperies were hanging loose, there... More

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Hays, Ks on the 14th of this month and was that hotel a pleasant surprise. From the very plain look of the outside and the small lobby, I was thinking this might not be the best choice of hotels. Once I got into my room and saw the modern design and the cleanliness...

The reason I give it a three rating is the smell when you first walk in is like they are spraying deodorizer to cover a odor of mildew or something. In the room, the smell (carpet deodorizor or something ) covered up for mold or mildew. The bathroom as it appeared clean, smelled like mold. The bathroom floor needed a... More

Great stop off on I70. The location is right off the interstate and right between restaurants. There are also several restaurants across the street. The lobby is simple and clean and the room was the same. Nothing fancy just clean and simple. Great rate.

The hotel was clean and looks like it had been recently renovated. The rooms where clean and seemed nice. The bathroom appeared to have and old fan on the wall, and it smelled like electrical burning in the bathroom. Everything else was good. The breakfast was ok. I have been to some other econolodges and this ones breakfast was quaint.... More
