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.

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
