This motel used to be a Best Western and now it's an EconoLodge and from what I was told it will be remodeled and soon to become a Comfort Inn. The hotel is very clean the rooms are nice but nothing to write home about and the staff is very friendly and helpful. You can get to anyplace in West... More

I woke up at 3 AM, turned on the light, flipped back the covers and UGH! I was covered in bed bugs. I was out the door by 4 AM. Obviously, I didn't stay for the breakfast. The lady at the front desk just said "Sorry". I've spent the entire next week washing, throwing things out, vacuuming and generally trying... More

My wife and I traveled across the US staying at budget hotels. This was by far the best. It was very clean, had a spacious lobby area and the breakfast was terrific. We stayed as reward guests, so we did not see the rate. We would recommend this hotel highly.

This isn't a highly traveled area and I was a little skeptical of staying at an Econolodge, until I got there. This hotel has a very welcoming staff, and our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Great room, great price, pick this one !

The highlights of this hotel for a family of 5 including a toddler for a 3 night stay have to be the pool and the breakfast. All you can eat BACON and the pancake machine! The WiFi was awesome and kept the kids visually entertained. There are no kid channels on the television but for less than $100 a night... More

My husband, 18 year old daughter, and I stayed at the Econolodge in West Plains on our way to New Orleans on July 21, 2014 for one night. The hotel is clean with great decor and much nicer than any other Econolodge we have ever stayed at. Our room was on the first floor just down the hall from the... More

I used to stay here often when this inn was a Best Western. It's basically the same place -- same decor, furniture, breakfast bar, etc.; only now flying the EconoLodge flag. Not quite sure what's so "econo"-mical about close to $93.00 (including taxes) for West Plains, Missouri? I stay at many EconoLodges all over the state of Missouri -- expressly... More

A large, well decorated lobby. There is a pool, gym, and a Huddle House next door. Breakfast is included. Some hot items are included. Our room was by the lobby, but it was quiet until about 8 am. The mattresses were a little hard for my taste. Not fancy, but better than average.

I have used this hotel many times over the yrs. It was a Best Western and then a Grand Villa. It was recently bought by an East Indian family who own many locations across the country. Unfortunately they have the normal family members living on site and cooking in their rooms. The hallways are saturated by the smells of their... More

Clean rooms, excellent customer service from front desk staff, Good breakfast. Nice hotel for the price. Great location, easy to get to. Only complaint is the pillows are too fluffy, made my neck hurt.
