I have stayed at the Econo Lodge East in Fargo for at least 50 nights during the course of this year. The staff is very friendly and courteous, the rooms are always clean and have the necessary amenities. For a hotel where the rooms typically run for less than $75, this is great value. I will keep coming back here... More

We stayed here out of desperation but were sorry right away. The bed was broken down in some way and overly soft with no support. The wiring throughout the room was obviously not up to code with cords dangling everywhere I would sleep in my car before I would stay here again. It wasn't clean either. Nasty in every way.

Check my credibility on this site... I'm an average hotel traveler who has traveled quite a bit. Stayed at 2 star to 5 star resorts, and I can say this was the 1st time I've ever walked out of a hotel. Check in was easy, went to the room and the door had been left open by the maid. Went... More

friendly service and accommodations were met.Bed was comfortable, and room was clean, the only suggestion would be to have tv guides in the rooms so a person knows what channels are what and what is viewing.

We're not ones to write harsh reviews but if you rely on Trip Advisor reviews (like we did) it's important to be honest. The front desk clerk was painfully annoyed to even take one of his two ear buds out when we showed up and it went downhill from there. Our room was shabby, obviously not cleaned, and had clothes...

The most important thing we look for in a hotel is cleanliness. Unfortunately, this one dropped the ball. Cons: The carpet was incredibly filthy. Our feet were black and sticky if we walked barefoot. They seriously need to replace the carpet. Our feet left black footprints on the bottom of the tub when going in to shower. The coffee maker... More

We apologize for the issues you had. Yours is not the only room with overspray from the painting and we are very disappointed with the quality of work they did. We are having to use harsh chemicals and even throw some things out because of it. When we get the upstairs done we will be addressing carpets. Some will be... More

A no-frills, budget hotel in need of updating. We stayed in a lower level room, worn down through years of use, with bare bulbs (no fixture) over the bath mirror, multiple holes in the entry door where the chain latch had been replaced, and re-replaced, and chafed and worn woodwork. The complimentary breakfast is similarly bare-bones, with minimal selections and... More

We apologize for the issues with your room. We are working hard at getting things fixed or changed completely. The delay on our remodeling upstairs has thrown a big wrench in many of our plans timing wise. Many things are going to change though, and the breakfast options is one of them. Have a great day.

We stayed at Econo Lodge in Laramie WY and loved it so we specifically sought this one out. What a mistake. Checked in and bathroom had someone's clothes hanging on back of bathroom door and hair on the floor.

Econo Lodge Fargo is really clean, quiet, & reasonably priced. It's close to many restaurants, West Acres Mall, and right off I29. I'd stay there again next time I'm in Fargo. The room was very quiet. They offer a very nice free breakfast.
