I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I could tell my room had recently been renovated. Everything was very clean including the bathroom. There was a continental breakfast that included eggs, sausage links, waffles, fruit, cereal, biscuits, toast, and some pastries. The best part was the price...$52.99+tax! You can't beat that. I'll definitely be staying here again when I'm back... More

We had to do an overnight in Hays recently and checked Trip Advisor for recommendations and found Econo Lodge at the top of the list. I have always avoided staying with this chain from a bad experience years ago. However, found this to be a very clean and comfortable place to spend the night. Breakfast was adequate, the beds were... More

I was on a second floor room with newly remodeled bathroom. Staff were very nice and knowledgable. For $60...refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, king bed, stone look tile and looked like real stone countertop in the bathroom, great showerhead. A "small flush/big flush toilet" which is water conserving I've only seen in european hotels. Way to... More

We were very pleased with our stay. We booked a 2 queen no smokung interior room for $59. The hotel is clean, beds comfortable, and breakfast plenty sufficient and included eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. The staff and manager Sean were very friendly and helpful. Only drawbacks were some road noise and wear and tear showing in the bathroom, but for... More

This was a clean and friendly motel. The breakfast was adequate, in a clean space. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone travelling through , whether just for overnight or several days stay. It is handy to all restaurants or stores. The management personnel are friendly and accomadating.

We had a great experience staying and when we travel again we will be sure to stay here, it was clean and warm feeling. Thank you so very much. All of the other motels were way out of range as far as cost, we were so glad we found this lovely motel

This was the first time I had stayed at an Econo Lodge in years. Their rates were the cheapest and I decided to give them a try. The room was comfortable and the breakfast selection was very good (waffles, eggs, sausage, pastry, cereal). Quiet and the hotel is easy access off of I-70. Great value for the price.

This motel is older than some, but the basic service and accommodations make it a super value. Hot breakfast isn't gourmet, but it served to get us going down the road. The room was small but clean and the desk clerk was a charming young college student who was eager to please. We'd recommend it for the traveler looking for... More

2nd time to stay here. Probably the best value in Hays. Not the nicest or newest, but the best price for what you get. Ask for a room that has been renovated for nicer beds. The bathrooms are small but for the price it's fine for us. The breakfast has hot items like biscuits and gravy or eggs and sausage... More
