Very affordable, clean and comfortable night's stay here. Good breakfast setup and very friendly staff at front desk. Clerk suggested Whiskey Creek Grill and even offered a card for 10% discount (good food).

I'm an auto transporter which means I cross-cross the country constantly. I can't remember everywhere I've stayed so I keep a list. This hotel is definitely going in the "Will stay again" column! Small room but CLEAN! No fridge/micro but I've seen other reviews mention that the suites have them if you need them. Friendly staff, and a comfortable bed.... More

Three hours from home and our car died in the parking lot next door. They had a room at a great price. It's definitely more of a budget hotel than we usually use, but it was fine in a pinch. The room was a little too bright for me at night, and you could hear street noise. Breakfast was minimal... More

We drive from Grand Forks to Denver Periodically and this is the perfect spot to stop on the way. Reasonable, clean & fairly quiet for being on such a busy street. Lots of restaurants nearby and free normal motel-fare breakfast in the morning.

Room was clean, bed very comfortable, good location, friendly staff. Breakfast was your typical motel type, with waffle maker. Nice place to stay at a good value along I-80. Only negative was that the walls are paper thin and you can listen to conversations going on in the next room, or listen to their TV if yours is off.

This was a very comfortable, quiet and clean motel. There are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance and a gas station right next door. Breakfast had hard boiled eggs, milk, muffins, juice, coffee and make-you-own waffles. I can't give it a top rating because the ice machine didn't work and wi-fi in my room was spotty; the wi-fi...

We were on a quest to find family graves and chose to stay in Kearney and picked the Econo Lodge. We were looking for something decent and inexpensive and this was a good pick. The room was small but comfortable and the breakfast was more than adequate. Plus the location was great and Kearney has a lot to offer. Try... More

But it wasn't this Econo Lodge. The carpets were filthy. We were quoted a lower price on the phone than when we arrived- but did eventually get the original price. No fridge in the ting room. The breakfast was from hunger. We weren't asked if we were Choice members so had to go back to get my points verified. Won't... More

When we had some issues with our first room, the host bent over backwards to make everything right and then some !! Our stay extended unexpectedly and they treated us like family, and the accommodations were FIRST CLASS !! Everything about it equalled a five-star experience !! Highly recommend this Econolodge to anybody, everybody, and somebody !!
