Expect no frills..... and bring your own hairdryer and coffeemaker. Check in was easy and the folks at the desk were nice, but the room itself is very basic and not worth the price. With a college graduation in town, choices were limited but I would not stay here again.

Felt very mislead that I booked this as the Cedars Inn and when I arrived late at night could not find the hotel, thru on my Gps and it landed me at the Econolodge.....was not thrilled. If I'd known it was the Econolodge I'd never had stayed here. Nice people but the rooms leave a lot to be desired.

We stopped here overnight while on a road trip and compared to most hotels in this price range, it was extremely clean and comfortable. The only down-side was the sink had a draining problem-- admittedly, since we were only there for a quick overnight stay we didn't contact the front desk about this. On check-in, the woman at the desk... More

If you're travelling through central Washington and looking for a quality, affordable place to stay this is it. The name changed recently and it is still in the process of being remodeled, so will likely be even better soon. The rooms are clean and spacious with comfortable beds, a good fridge and microwave. We asked for a room on the... More

Stayed on a thursday night and it was a very nice and quiet evening. View of the water is calming, room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the shower was perfect. Hard to beat for the price. Cherise and other staff were friendly and accommodating.

Very clean king bed room with nice wide work desk with 3 desktop plugs. Also 2 bedside plugs with additional 2 USB ports on night stand. Nice sitting chair, small fridge and microwave along with small flat screen tv. Dresser top was marble but a little large for the room, but nice. Excellent water pressure for shower along with shampoo... More

I stayed one night while passing though and it looked fine… until the next morning when my husband found a small cockroach in the bed, dead but there. That same morning my arm began to itch and I looked down to find swollen bites!!! I am not pleased!

Property M, General Manager at Econo Lodge, responded to this review

Our apologies, however, as you may recall we did review and assess the situation, you were concerned of bed bugs. However, those bites are reactions to mosquitoes bites, it's unfortunate for sure however we are close to the lake. Furthermore, we even had Orkin come out the next morning and verify there’s no issue with the room. We hope this... More

We liked the room and the price. But wow, there was no room to move. I could not use the desk because then my wife could not use the sink or bathroom. Two queen beds take up all the room. No refrigerator or microwave. No coffee maker. I could have asked but we did not need anyway but some do.... More

This is a great place to stay, I really enjoyed it! Clean, friendly, and a GREAT PRICE. Good breakfast in the morning. Good location, looking out on the water, watching geese fly in from my room. Nice rooms with no frills, which I like, just the basics and really clean. The night before I stayed at a Super 8, paid... More
