4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

I was in town for business and new it would have a late night/early morning so was just looking for a place quiet and cheap, but also clean. This property was just as I expected. The rooms were updated, bed comfortable, and no one up late running down the halls. If you need a place to crash with a decent... More

When I walked in to register for my reserved room they said the room was not ready because they were trying to get the smell out. Needless to say we walked out of that place. The lobby was dirty. The rate was low but nothing was enough to make me stay there.

Chris H, General Manager at Econo Lodge East, responded to this review

We apologize for your experience, but while most hotels would have just checked you in and been done with it, we want to make sure the room is actually ready and not half done or smelly from the last guest. We take pride in improving our hotel and making it a better hotel even for an "economy" hotel. As for... More

I booked this hotel for one night on our way through to the Twin Cities area. There were apparently several events in town that had hotel prices sky high and booked full everywhere. We (and our dog!) were greeted by a very nice man at the front desk, our room was clean, and despite being booked it was nice and... More

Clean, good thoughtful touches in the room plus managers who seem to be working hard to raise the profile of their lodge and it's not so good reputation which preceded them. We see it is paying off; we were almost not able to re-book because their availability was limited. Whereas once the location struggled to attract good customers now it... More

The room we were in was spacious and located at the end of the hall on the lower floor. Room was clean and comfortable. The down side was a dripping tub and an AC located on the wall blowing over the beds. I will give them the benefit of the doubt on several issues. It was a weekend and they... More

For a low price hotel it was not so bad. My wife, two kids, and I just got done staying there for three nights. This is the perfect hotel for a solo, couple, or two friends, and for one night. Here is why. Like others have stated, the staff is wonderful. The manager and cleaning crew were very friendly and... More

I've stayed at this Econolodge for years. We live in the Twin Cities and visit my parents in Bismarck once or twice a year, and we break up the drive by spending the night in Fargo. The staff at Econolodge are always very friendly, and the rooms are clean and everything functions well. We've never had any problems with noise,... More

The staff was excellent, friendly, helpful, accommodating, upbeat, and welcoming. The room however was terrible. This is not a two star hotel, this is a run down one star in desperate need of a renovation. Being pet friendly means pet messes which have to be cleaned up properly. I'm guessing the room I stayed in was cleaned with some powerful... More

Don't expect cookies at the check in desk, but do expect a clean and comfortable room. Try to get a room on the side opposite the freeway as there will be less freeway noise and little or no noise from the adjacent Mexican restaurant. Breakfast was free, not fancy, but adequate.
