( had it set as high as it would go) 2.) Tried to call front desk to report heater within 45 min of turning... More

We (3 of us) stayed the nights of July 18th & 19th, 2015. We saw the big Econo Lodge sign right away, but couldn't see any motel close by. We finally spied it setting about 200 yards away. Check in went smooth, then drove back to the main lodge. When walking in to the entryway, the first impression was terrible!!... More

Spontaneously decided to take a cross-border overnight trip to Watertown. Decided to be frugal and Hotwire a room, a 2-star room to save money to shop! I've stayed in multiple hotels around Watertown over the years, sometimes using Hotwire, and have never been disappointed, even at low-mid-rated hotels. It took about 25 minutes to check in. The person ahead of... More

I was here about a year ago on business. I had heard that there were some improvements. They were wrong. Outdated rooms where the wallpaper has been painted and now is pealing. Uncomfortable mattress and noisy wall unit. There is not a bunch of affordable places for business travel in Watertown but, this is not the place.

Room was ok for that kind of price (60 USD), even though the TV seemed to be really old. Stayed there for one night, breakfast had all that I needed, but the breakfast room was pretty small. Nice staff and close to restaurants.

Office staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was small and very outdated. Wall paper was falling off the wall in the bedroom and bathroom. The room seemed clean but really old. All the cabinets were beat up from old age, The TV was old low definition and blurry, although the office had a nice new one. A lot... More

Rooms are OK -they are clean. Outdated is more like it. Service is extremely friendly. She is great at recommending local mom & pop establishments. WiFi is extremely glitchy. Great value for the money. The great service from house keeping to the front desk far out ways the updating that it needs.

Overall it was a fine place to sleep at, was sufficiently clean and neat, and every encounter with staff was positive. My only two complaints are that the TV is terrible, and that was made more annoying because the internet connectivity is sketchy and weak at best. At first I thought, "No problem on the crappy, old TV, I'll just... More

Office is cute. Staff is extremely friendly. Hotel is dated, but a great value for the price. Service from the maids is fast & prompt. We stayed 3 days & booked again. If you are not a smoker, I do not recommend.
