Cheap, but definitely never again. It was late enough and I was so tired I had to sleep. Otherwise I should have asked for my money back. The room smelled like the locker room at my local gym. Limited tv channels. The heater in the room didn't work so you had to use the wall ac/heater dual unit. TV would... More

This is not the best motel we have ever stayed in, but for a last minute check in at a reasonable rate, it was okay. The room was reasonable clean, average furnishings, and warm. The breakfast was very basic.

Only stayed for the night, but the bed was comfortable. Bathroom was okay, refrigerator worked well. The lobby smelled pretty bad and was really tiny. Wouldn't stay for more than just a night, but traveling a long ways and needing a place to stay in a hurry it was just okay.

Pros: the bed was comfortable and the desk clerk was friendly. Cons: the room smelled like kitty litter (not cat urine or feces, the clay smell of kitty litter). The refrigerator appeared to be working when I put my items in it, there was frost in the freezer compartment, but the next morning the refrigerator interior was room temperature and... More

Horrible, dirty place with broken everything; pavement, laundry room, vending machine, etc. TWO rooms were dirty and one even had brown streaks on the wall with hair stuck on it! Clerks are nice, but the carpets are filthy, the coffee pot area on the table was stained and it was NOT a pleasant experience. The area's nice and the Corn... More

When we got our rooms everything was fine until we pulled back the blankets and found a dirty rag. Then they moved us across the hall and the toilet had left overs. From our experience I would not recommend it the old guy at the front desk probably doesn't even get anyone to clean the rooms.

...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.
