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.

Ok, let me start by saying, anyone who has written a negative review should be reminded that they have booked at a 2 star hotel, so you should show up expecting a 2 star, not a 4 star. Folks should at least review it as a 2 star to be fair, which is what I have done. I booked this... More

This hotel was clean and comfortable, but very small. It has a great location right by the mall. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast in the morning was very small, although we did head to it later in the morning. The staff was extremely friendly. We have stayed at econolodges before that were much nicer, but this one worked fine... More

It was a no smoking Econo Lodge although my room smelled like it had been smoked in for years! Beds and pillows were very hard and uncomfortable and they had stains on my sheets. I had to get them changed, gross! Hair in the tub but nice smell was in the lobby though...

Came to Fargo for the marathon arriving very late at night. Went to the wrong Econo lodge at first (they are pretty close together but not affiliated with each other) before finding the correct one tucked off 35th St. It is you basic highway motel and I requested my favoured upstairs, king-size bed. Strangely, they only had kings on the... More

Rolled in late, rolled out early perfectly adequate room for an overnight on a traveling vacation. A little tricky to find as it is tucked in to a curve in the road with several other hotel/motels. No elevator. Could have stood for the smokers to have to move away from the end of the building, but that is a common... More

This location was really nice. The room was clean, quite, and set-up really well. I especially liked the lounge chair in the room and the quality of the sound on the television. The bed was very comfortable adn did not sag anywhere. I certainly did not expect this for a bargain priced Econo lodge. This is a hotel that I... More

We paid $43 after taxes directly from the hotel's website. The breakfast was good for its price and came with giant yogurts. The hotel is right off the highway and very close to a few grocery stores and Best Buy! The room's air conditioner really sucked but the bed wasn't too bad. The pictures on the website was definitely nicer... More

My husband and I brought the youngest brother of the family up to see the oldest brother. We chose to stay at the Econo Lodge - Because, It was close to all the shopping and also the center where we needed to go. The room was really clean and smelt great! We had no problems with the room.

Excellent Hotel. Very clean, excellent breakfast. We would go back. They messed up our room booking but were great in dealing with it. Had a good stay. We are fussy, and we liked it. People who work there seem a bit odd, but the service was great. We only stayed one night but will go back there every time we... More
