A quick night's stop over on a long road trip. Not many options for dog friendly hotels in Hays Ks.. The hotel itself sits between two fast food places . The hotel is old and tired but worked for a one night stop. Old style AC/heating unit was hard to get to just the right comfortable level, had no real... More

Excellent location close to restaurants, fuel stops, grocery store (Dillon's) a shopping mall and I70 highway. You can also visit several nearby attractions within a few miles of the hotel. Two room doors give you access to your car to load bags and also to the inside of the hotel for breakfast. Just don't try to re-enter the outside door... More

We had never stayed at an Econo Lodge and were just checking to see how the motel compared to other. It was a clean facility, with a friendly staff. A half mile from Interstate 70. Good value for your money. We will stay there again.

My friend wanted to stay here and share a room for a reunion. We were there for 3 nights. I wasn't expecting much because the rate was very reasonable. The rooms were not fancy, just what I expected. But, the mattresses were good and everything was quite clean. It was quiet in the evening. Seems to be a family run... More

I chose this hotel based on the great rate and I was not expecting much. I was very pleasantly surprised by the modern appearance of the rooms. My king bed was very comfortable with updated linens (not the gross coverlet normally found on economy hotel beds). The gentleman who checked us in was friendly and efficient. I left too early...

We unexpectedly stopped in Hays, as we didn't want to drive anymore that night. This Econo Lodge was great! Very clean, modern, reasonably priced and a great free breakfast in the morning! I would definitely recommend it!

Late night stop-over in Hays Kansas with our dachshund. This was literally the only pet-friendly hotel available in Hays! I booked a 2 queen room through the corporate reservation system.
