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

We found our room to be neat and clean. Room temp was great. Everything in the bathroom worked. We had a microwave and fridge - both worked find. The staff was friendly and helpful. The management did an online search and got us special information on an event we were planning to attend. The continental breakfast was very skimpy. The... More

Thanks for staying with us during your stay. We try to help our guests as much as we can while they are in town. Concerning our breakfast, we are currently looking at options to make changes and/or additions when we do our remodeling this winter. Some ideas such as fresh cooked eggs and sausage are being tossed around right now.... 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

We apologize for the issues during your stay. We have addressed the staff issues already. As for our carpets, we have had them steam cleaned and they are getting to a point where we are looking at options of replacement. This is also one of our winter remodeling projects for the winter when things are slower and we can take... More

We apologize for the issues you had in your room and the attitude of the staff. We are in the middle of the planning stages of major remodeling this winter, carpet being one of the big issues.

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

We are glad our hotel was a good choice for you. Although construction workers and tourists are our main customers here, we are looking to expand that by possibly adding some things which will help the business customers and companies also. Ideas like a meeting room and a printer for business customers are some of them. Have a great day 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.

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.

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
