We had no problem finding the place. It was clean, quiet and the staff was very friendly. We had driven all day and we were super tired when we arrived. Checking in was quick and easy. Lots of pillows on the bed, so no need to go ask for more.

Comfortable bed, clean room, friendly staff. Close to the mall and several restaurants. The breakfast is typical budget hotel food. Nothing special but it fills you up. Nicer than a lot of other budget hotels. Heat/AC unit is very old and very loud. I had to turn it off to sleep.

Thanks for staying with us. You will be glad to know we are getting rid of all our old HVAC units and replacing them with new Amana digital units. We are also looking at adding more selections to our breakfast when the area is completed with our renovation. This should add even more bang for the buck, especially for an... More

As indicated in my review, this hotel is apparently undergoing some renovations. It was clean, my first night there was deteriorating sheet-rock next to the a/c and heating unit. I've stayed here before and been impressed so I'll give it another chance next time I'm in town. Breakfast is par with other cold motel offerings, although just down the block... More

Thank you for staying with us. Yes, we are doing a major renovation which will increase our capacity by 19 rooms. We are also going to be replacing all our HVAC units with a slightly larger unit. That is the reason for not repairing the cracks at this time, since the holes for the new units will be larger than... More

I spent two nights at your lodge last week. This was the third time I stayed with you. As usual all needs were taken care of and the stay was really nice. The room was clean and neat and resting except for a hole in a wall. Thanks for taking care of me.

Thank you for continuing to stay with us. We will be repainting all our rooms, at which time any holes, or gouges will be filled in and taken care, along with newer HVAC units and some other upgrades in the bathrooms. We look forward to seeing you the next time you are in town. Have a great day! Chris &... More

Thank you for staying with us while you were in Fargo. We love working with the hospitals and the VA clinic. We have had the pleasure of conversation with many neat people. We love to take opportunities to actually talk with our guests instead of treat them as a typical customer. It personalizes the stay instead of being just about... More

I had a positive experience staying at this hotel (May 1-3, 2015). Not only were the staff pleasant and polite but they were also very friendly. I would most definitely stay here again. For the price you pay, you get more. Especially with the beds and WIFI. I'm excited to see what is done once the renovations are complete. The... More

Thank you for staying with us. We are also looking forward to getting the remodeling done. It is a bit of a headache at times. We are going to be tripling the size of our breakfast area to start, and we are also looking at adding a hot breakfast such as scrambled eggs, sausage or biscuits and gravy. The biggest... More

I am disabled and asked for a handicapped room. Even though I asked for even just a room on the first floor, I was unable to get one. I was unable to stay the 2nd night because of the steps to the 2nd floor.

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

We are sorry for your experience. Unfortunately, we only have one handicap room, which was booked that night. Also, we only have a certain number of single queen rooms on the main level because that is where our Kings and doubles are. If you needed a handicap room it would have been advisable to book one ahead of time or... More

Good value for the money. The beds were super comfy. If you want luxury, this is not the place for you. If you want to save money, this is a good option. Easy to find, microwave and fridge were clean.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I never expected to find a large, well appointed room for the price we paid. The room was clean and somewhat dated. I didn't understand why they had a medium blue bedcover with burgundy carpet, jewel tone patterned chairs and goldish drapes. After I sat on the bed I no longer cared. The... More

Thank you for staying with us. That man would have been me :) Yes, it is typically somewhat windy here. The beds were the first thing changed.
