The room was very clean. The Internet worked wonderfully. The breakfast was so-so but what do you expect for a little pricey you paid. The bed was very comfortable very soft and the sheets had been cleaned. The staff was helpful and friendly!

We stayed here on an overnight pass thru Hays. It is very clean, the mattresses are all new at this time and very comfortable. Bed, bathroom, and room in general were all very well maintained. We noticed that it was quieter in our room than at a more expensive La Quinta Inn we had stayed in the previous two nights.... More

The facilities, cleanliness was very good the breakfast was not. I would suggest going out for breakfast. The breakfast selection was very limited with no muffins, only white bread for toast and only one Danish available. I didn't see any staff available to address the issues.

We stayed in this Econo Lodge last fall when the owners were remodeling the bathrooms. We had our pet with us and it was fine for a night. We decided to stay there again this May. We had a great room on the second floor. Very comfy king sized bed. The room was super clean and so was the bathroom.... More

Booked last minute and arrived just as room was finished being clean. As soon as we were checked in, the staff was at the door to make sure we had towels since the room had literally just been cleaned. Clean room and thoughtful staff, i would definitely stay here again! Thanks!

Great price and the rooms and breakfast were very good. We have tried other hotels in Hays, but this was definitely the best so far. We will definitely stay there again when visiting daughter at FHSU.

Very nice, clean and well maintained motel, not your usual Econo Lodge. Very clean rooms well furnished and decorated, on par with most Comfort Suites, but without the pool and a little smaller rooms. Very good breakfast, eggs, sausage, waffles, Danish, orange juice, cereal, fresh bananas, apples and oranges. Excellent WIFI, unusually fast download speeds for any hotel, was able... More

My husband and I are very picky about cleanliness, the way the bed feels, ect..., so we usually go to Comfort Inn's. This Econo Lodge is just as nice as a Comfort Inn at half the price! The manager is really helpful.

I made a reservation at 10:00PM for the same night for my husband as he was driving through Kansas with a large trailer and I asked if there was a place where he could park the truck and trailer and was told "yes".

Crossing Kansas from Mid MO to the Rockies usually requires a stop with kids. We've found many towns along I-70 to be family friendly, but Hays might be the best. This Econo Lodge was affordable, clean, quiet, and the double room was spacious and had a mini fridge. It served our needs perfectly and we will probably use this motel... More
