Oh m where to begin. First you gotta feel sorry for the person who works at the desk~~they get paid BELOW minimum wage. The one poor employee had to be summoned by using the phone and calling her room. The owners of the hotel should be reported. The hotel was stinky. The rooms need to be updated, sorely updated.

They are running this on the cheap. The day I was there, there was a sign that read Branierd, Minnesota at the front desk. How do you mess up the spelling of the town your business is in? As far as the hotel goes, I was there for four days and only saw three other people in the hotel. And... More

We made a reservation for a non-smoking room. When we arrived we were told that we got the last room. The room smelled of cigarette smoke which kept me up most of the night. When I got home, the stale smoke smell was still clinging to my pajamas! Also the smoke dectetor was not working and looked like someone had... More

I did a thorough search of all websites and this Econolodge had the best rate. If you make the reservation though econolodge[--], you are given the AAA rate. When we checked in, we were given what the receptionist called a 10% discount for a total of $139 for 2 nights in a 2 queen room). I checked my on line... More
