Good value for your dollar. A step above most budget motels. Clean and comfortable. Friendly desk staff. Average breakfast. For dinner try Al's Chickenette at the south end of town - great old diner with delicious chicken.

Passing through and needed a place for one night. Hotel right off interstate. My room was a single with a king bed. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, and sleep was undisturbed by neighbors, but I was on second floor. We left before breakfast was served but there was a McDonald's across the street. There was a refrig and microwave... More

Reading your Trip Advisor review obviously filled me with mixed emotions; on the one hand we are all so pleased to read that you have enjoyed your stay at our hotel and that you had clean room with comfortable bed and that you had quiet neighbor, but it was sad to see that we were given low rating.

Can't beat this place for the price. Clean room, comfortable bed and very helpful staff. Breakfast in the morning (waffles my personal favorite). No pool or exercise facility, but for half the price of other places in town, Econo Lodge is great. Everything is close by as well (on the main strip in Hays).

Check in was fast and easy. Room was nice, also very quiet I did not hear any traffic noise, considering the drive thru restaurant next door. The waffles and sausage were good at breakfast, but not sure about the egg patties did not try.

Let's not kid each other. You are only passing by and you need an inexpensive place to lay your head down. The outside of the Econo Lodge is strange, where half the rooms have the motel type exterior entrance. The other half inside. Don't be discouraged. The room is decent. you walk in and see an "old school' wall mount... More

Stayed overnight in a room with king size bed. The bed was a real king size and was very comfortable. Overall, the room looked good. There is a flat screen TV, microwave and mini-refigerator. There is a breakfast in the morning that looked to be more than the usual, but I left before they started serving. The location is close... More

On a 11 day trip and slept in 7 different beds. The bed at Econo Lodge in Hays was the most comfortable. Room was clean, bath was new, staff, both night and morning were friendly. Enjoyed our brief stay. Several other hotels in the area but most were over $100. This was a good value.

This stay was very nice. We had a clean, comfortable room to sleep in and the free breakfast was very nice to get us on the road the next morning. This was just an overnight stay on our way to western Kansas, but met our needs very well.

Great staff. Done deal! Clean room, soft towels and and awesome bed made for an outstanding stay in Hays! Drop down dead for a wonderful nights lodging. Breakfast is motel special, so don't expect over easy with hash browns and ham steak or eggs Benedict!! Well done Hays, if ever back across I70 again - - YOU will be revisited...

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!
