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!

Appear to be run by a couple that live onsite. Friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the morning includes eggs and sausage as well as the usual waffle maker and rolls. Room was quiet and beds were nice. Some maintnance areas in the bathroom in my room. Poor caulking around the tub. My Uncle and Aunt's room had a sewage smell... More

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. When we arrived, the manager offered us an upgraded room with new double pillow-top mattresses for the same price! The room was clean & comfortable. There aren't any "frills" here,... More

We stayed twice at the Econo Lodge in Hays, KS in the last week. The outside of the building doesn't look special, but it is an economy motel after all. Inside, however, the room looked well maintained and clean. The room was a good size as well. Both times we stayed here the motel was quiet and we had a... More

We were very pleased with this Econo Lodge. The owner, who worked the front desk, was very friendly and even gave us a coupon for a local restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable. And, the bathroom was in excellent shape and very clean. Great value for the money. I would stay here again.

Hays was the best location for us to spend the last night of a long road trip. We decided to try the Econo Lodge because it was $40 less than the next cheapest available motel for that night, so obviously we did not have high expectations. The room was clean and comfortable. The decor was a mixture from several decades,... More

While my room was very nice....I was surprised there is no elevator to the 2nd floor. So I hauled my luggage upstairs and down. Also no air-conditioning in the upstairs hallway. In each room, yes. But who doesn't have air-condition these days in 100 degree weather? No coffee pot in the room so had to go downstairs each morning for... More
