Very nice clean room! When checking in Agent was very nice, allowed me to check room before I paid. Room was perfect for our one night stay while traveling through Kansas. Great coffee & nice breakfast to get us on our way. Clean & Comfortable!!

This hotel is so much better than I expected from a 2 star hotel. The rooms have been nicely refurbished and very clean. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are quiet. Nice newer tile showers. It is a great value. The owners are very friendly and helpful and recommended a great place for dinner. Breakfast was standard fare.

This is an Econo Lodge so the rooms fairly small, amenities are simple and the price very affordable. The motel was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and breakfast simple. It is dog friendly, unfortunately not cat friendly :( . If you are looking for a dog friendly hotel in Hays, this is the place to stay. None of... More

Of all of the hotels we stayed at during our vacation, this was the best! The bed was comfortable the room was clean, and the price was right! We picked up a hotel coupon book at a truck stop and were glad we chose this hotel.

Stayed at Hays Econo Lodge February 2015. Great location, rates, welcoming staff, parking, and easy access. My room and bathroom, both, super clean. Sheets and towels clean and good quality, the bed was very comfortable and I slept great. TV, heat, lights, all worked like they were supposed to - another plus. The cleanliness of my room garners this Econo... More

Stopped in route to Nederland so we would get home in the daylight. Arrived about 11pm. Staff was helpful and friendly. The room was immaculate and nicely appointed with a very comfortable king bed.

Not many hotels in Hays that were dog friendly. This one was. Cleanliness just better than average. Simple but good breakfast. Had sausage and egg bagle. Allows pets for $10. Rear entry did no work especially for taking out the pet to the back area. Will recommend especially for the price!
