The entire stay was a great experience from start to finish. The check-in was smooth and the staff were very friendly. We requested 3 rooms close to one another which were provided. Our rooms were nicer than higher end hotels I've stayed. The breakfast had an assortment of items, which satisfied everyone in our group. You can't go wrong making... More

I Stayed here last week .Great Value ,my room was clean and comfortable, Staff pleasant .Eager to help in any reasonable request.Management appears to be very frugal in running the hotel. But with how expensive everyday needs are these days I think it's good business sense. I was told they are slowly remodeling ,to update old carpeting along with other... More

As the hotel prices seem to run a little high in this college town, we went with the Econo Lodge as a Choice Priviledges member since the Comfort Suites was at least 30% higher. Although the hotel showed signs of wear and tear, it still provided us with a comfortable, safe, and clean overnight experience we weary travelers needed. The... More

We are choice privilege members. We had stayed at the competitors on several occasions but decided to try out the Econo Lodge due to it being half the price. We were very pleased with the staff, the room and the breakfast. Large rooms and clean bathrooms. We will stay here in the future.

We stopped here after checking out other hotels in the area. Most of them said they were handicapped accessible but that was only the room entry, bathrooms were not accessible. I highly recommend this hotel for that reason alone, the shower, and everything in the room was accessible, the staff at check in was courteous and friendly and would like... More

I have back problems, and the bed was the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. I usually sleep on a Lazy Boy Chair and have done so for several years. For this reason alone I would stay here again the next time I am in the area.

Maybe we received the nasty room but wow. I realize this is an economy hotel, but that does not mean guests should be subjected to this filth. Strong urine smell and nasty stains everywhere. We pulled in off the fwy. very late at night and it was my mistake not to inspect the room prior to check in. Great rates.....no... More

The hotel is on the outskirts of Natchitoches but that isn't a bother. The hotel offers good rates, friendly employees, better then usual Econolodge breakfast and is clean. Are things perfect? No but considering all the good things and the rate charged, the hotel is a winner for us.
