My mother sister and I stayed here for a girls vet away. At first it was fine average hotel. Beds seem smaller but very high off the ground. The part that grossed us out is the next morning I woke up and had a BED BUG crawling on my back!!! Threw the sheets back to look at the bed and... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night. We wanted to stay at the Holiday or Microtel, but both were booked solid. This Econo Lodge had formerly been a Super 8. The hotel was not fully booked, yet we were put on the lower floor at the back of the hotel, and the rooms around us were... More

Great place for the price. Young man behind the counter was very courteous, hardworking and accommodating. Rooms were clean, double beds should have been queens, not full size. continental breakfast was good. Coffee available 24x7. Had a pleasant stay. Very relaxing.

Young man at the counter was helpful with recommendations for a dining spot featuring local brews. Non-smoking rooms adjacent to smoking rooms, halls smelled smokey. Nice beds, furniture, towels, fairly new bedspreads. Bathroom floor was not clean and there were some age-related flaws in the drywall, trim, etc. But for the price ($62.99 for two doubles), it was just fine.... More

Stayed 2 nights for the OKTOBERFEST. The hotel was a great location, and we could walk to the Holiday Inn and also to the grocery store, right next door. The rooms were clean and had what we needed. Down sides no elevator, no pool or hot tub, and not enough room in the breakfast area. I would stay there again... More

We stayed in the Econo Lodge in late July of 2013. My husband was attending a convention at Martin Luther College in New Ulm and we opted not to stay in the dorms. We arrived mid-afternoon and there were only a couple of other cars in the lot, which made me a little nervous. I wondered if we had made... More

I don't usually stay at budget chains, but a friend recommended it and we had a fairly large party (3 rooms), so we tried it. The rooms were clean and spacious, with comfortable beds with a high profile (as in, high off the floor). We expected only a continental breakfast but has a waffle maker as well as free newspapers.... More

Where to start? Perhaps with the positive. This hotel wasn't near as dirty as some I have experienced for this cost. It was relatively clean, but that's about the best that can be said for it. It is sorely in need of some updates. The furnishings there not only looked dated, but cheap. The breakfast was extremely sparse and unattended.... More

I was very unhappy with this hotel. The Microtel next door looked significantly better, although staring from the parking lot of a motel you didn’t like is hardly a test. Plus Side: Both the night staff that checked us in and the morning staff that checked us out were pleasant and helpful. If you’re going to stay in New Ulm,... More

Econo Lodge was the only hotel with rooms available when we had to make a last minute trip to New Ulm. We had to be at our first apt by 6:45am so a drive from Minneapolis that morning would have been crazy early. Was pleasantly surprised to find the Econo Lodge clean and comfortable.
