My husband and I came to Fargo to visit my niece at ndsu. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay so we tried the econo lodge. It was exactly what we needed! The price was only $60 and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. I've had much worse rooms that I paid a... More

We stayed for one night on Sat Oct 12, 2014. The price was very reasonable although someone forgot to vacuum our carpets. The staff at the front desk was very nice to us as she found us a few good places to eat. The bathroom was clean. The bed was clean although the mattress is getting worn out. There was... More

First I would like to apologize for the carpets not being cleaned as they should be every day. This is something that should be very important to our housekeepers as it is very much to the management. Thank you for staying with us during your stay in Fargo. I am hoping the next time you are in the area you... More

I'll start off by saying my first review never even got posted. Whether that was TripAdvisor's glitch or the hotel removed it, I don't know. Positive aspects: - Close to West Acres Shopping Centre - Conveniently located and easy to find along the interstate. - A good price. - Breakfast was decent for the price paid. Negative aspects: - Terrible... More

We apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay. We are in the process of many changes here, one of which is getting consistently reliable housekeeping and room conditions. This does involve a lot of training as I am sure you are aware to get everyone on the same page and cleaning up to Choice standards. If you could... More

Passing through Fargo and I need a room fairly priced, clean but not all the bells and whistle. This place covered all that. The lady and her husband running the place are dog lovers so there are some rooms that are per friendly. Room was good, slept well. I feel like the $63 was a fair price for me and... More

I stayed at this location for 2 night's for a wedding. I was impressed by the appliances such as a nice big TV and refrigerator in the room. Staff was welcoming, and friendly. Very happy with the service, price, and the room. I am making a return trip next month and will be staying here again.

The Econo Lodge East in Fargo is so welcoming and friendly. All the staff from the housekeeping staff, front desk all the way up to the managers make you feel like you are truly family and not just revenue coming in. I would recommend this hotel to anybody going to be in the Fargo area.

Thanks for staying with us this weekend. We try to make all our guests feel welcome like that. While this is a business, our guests should be able to enjoy their stay here and have a good time and feel as though it is a home away from home, which is our ultimate goal. Have a great day More

We were passing through Fargo so we though we would grab an inexpensive room. The room was tired but on the whole, clean (although the carpet should have been steam cleaned and sanitized from a previous accident). The beds were soft but comfy. The lady at the front desk in the morning was rude. At best she grunted at us... More
