...second night on our journey moving with a dog. Econo Lodge in Mitchell was almost exactly the same as Econo Lodge in Des Moines. The room was comfortable, the desk staff helpful at recommending restaurants in the area. The bed was fine, there was a refrigerator in the room for soda and beer. Needed the air conditioner, it was really... More

We were travelling in the area and needed to find a hotel for the night. I searched the internet and found that if we stayed a couple hours from Sioux Falls, SD we would get much better prices. In my search we came across Econo Lodge so I booked through an agency. We had a clean room with good accommodations... More

We stayed 1 night and I'm not sure I could have made it. The room was clean but needed a paint job real bad. The bed wasn't very comfortable, and the breakfast was very basic. For the price, I was dispointing.

It was a cheap place to stay in Mitchell, older motel that could use some update's. It was ok, but we didn't expect much, and we didn't get it either. Be to breakfest early, because they shut it down early. they told us it was open until 9:30 and when we got there at 9:15 it was already closed. Dissapointed... More

My husband had to be at Avera Hospital at 6:30 in the morning, so we decided to stay in Mitchell the night before the surgery. We have stayed at Econo Lodges on other trips and were very pleased with our stays. This was not the greatest experience!! No one at the front desk, so you had to call to get... More

I have been staying in hotels for travels over the past 42 years and this was the worst. It was dirty, smelly, and the non smoking rooms reeked of smoke. The windows would not open, so I could not air out the room. At 4am, the noise was crazy from the room above. The clerk was not interested in trying... More

When we walked into the building, we noticed that you have to actually pick up a phone and call someone to come check you in/out. When we went to our room downstairs, where it was all supposedly a non-smoking area, the smell of smoke was the first thing we noticed. Yuck! When we got into the room, we saw that... More

Last minute booking resulted in staying at the Econo Lodge in Mitchell. Stayed at other Econo Lodges that weren't bad, but this one is rough. Exterior looks pretty darn bad (no one can argue that). Interior is an example of a property well on the backside of decline. Rooms "feel dirty" and are also physically rough. Floors dirty and bathrooms... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I am a storm adjuster for the hail storm that just hit Mitchell. Thank goodness one just hit Colorado, cause I am now on my way to there. My one week in hell has come to an end. I don't even know how anyone can feel safe putting... More
