Very clean, modern rooms. Courteous staff. A very good reasonable priced to stay. Close to the interstate. Lots of choices for restaurants nearby and a very nice brewery in this town that also has good food!

This Econo Lodge was one of the nicest Econo's I have stayed in. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My room, the lobby and the breakfast area were all clean and in good condition. Convenient access to Interstate highway.

Very nice reasonably priced hotel with friendly, helpful staff. We liked the location, the comfort, and the breakfast. We pass through Hays frequently, usually stopping only to eat and fill up the car. Now there's a good chance that we'll stay overnight in Hays at this hotel.

The rooms were secure. The gentleman at the desk wouldn't even say my room number out loud because other people were in the office. The parking was right next to an all night gas station and Arby's so it had the sensation of being very well lit. The refrigerator was a nice touch. Out of date in terms of furnishings... More

Thank You for choosing our hotel while passing through Hays. We greatly appreciate your business, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It is the hotel policy not to announce the room number when other guest are present around front desk area. I'm glad to hear that my front desk personnel still remember his/her first day training....

I pulled in off of the road looking for a place with a parking lot that could accommodate a truck and trailer. The first place I came to was the Econo Lodge. I truly wasn't expecting much, but I was tired and it was late. The man at the front desk was very nice. The room was clean, the bed... More

We stayed one night while heading to California. As retirees we frequently travel and spend lots of nights in hotels. The young man working at the front desk was friendly and very helpful when we checked in. He was also well groomed. (not always the case with some hotel front desk staff). The room was clean and the beds comfortable.... More

The hotel is clean and odor free with updated TV and wireless internet. Also includes a free breakfast with eggs and sausage. We had a single King bed with plenty of space for walking past each other. My wife can be picky but was happy with the stay. We were passing through and did not research before making the reservation.

This property has one of the friendliest, most helpful staffs I've ever found in a hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, but keep in mind you aren't staying in the Ritz-Carlton (nor are you paying for the Ritz-Carlton). If you don't like soft pillows, bring your own: we forgot ours and both ended up with minor neck aches. Breakfast... More

This property is a great place to stay if your taking a road trip and you've spent a very, very, very long day on the road. We were "dog tired' (not sure about the definition) and our rooms were just what we expected. The facility is very close to I-40 and there are some options for food within walking distance.

All the people at the hotel were very nice as was our room and the premises. They gave us a 10% off card for the nearby restaurant (Whiskey Creek which was excellent). The free breakfast was very good with a wide selection of food, hot and cold.
