Budget hotel did what it was supposed to and provided a bed and shower cant complain for the price... More

Nice, clean room and a quiet night's rest. This place was convenient and we got a great rate. The front desk clerk was very helpful and friendly, even went to our room when I had trouble with the lock. Overall a good place to stop just outside of Seattle.

WA168, Manager at Econo Lodge Federal Way, responded to this review

I am sorry to hear about what has happened with the smoke from other rooms going into the hallways. This property has recently gone under new ownership and the new ownership is in the process of eliminating all of the smoking rooms, that way this problem does not happen again. I do not know why you were told we have... More

Federal Way is a pretty decent or pretty terrible place. Get the top 5 or so on TA you're golden, otherwise you'll end up at somewhere close to, but not quite as bad as this Econolodge. In most cases the top 5 are booked solid, so best be prepared. As for the Hotel itself the staff were friendly and helpful... More

The room was clean, the breakfast was good. The location was excellent, could have not been better. The price was on spot. And i could not find any issues. Housekeeping and front desk very well trained.

Overall, the hotel room I stayed in was very clean, just one stray hair on the bed sheets. However, the toilet and shower were clogged in the bathroom. Yikes! And the knob on the sink fell right off when I went to turn on the water. I only needed a place to crash, so it worked very nicely for my... More

This hotel was very clean, affordable and the staff was friendly and accomodating. When I read some of the reviews, I almost didn't book it. Glad I didn't listen. The furniture is a little old but the bed was comfortable and the room was cleaned, bed made and towels replaced daily.

Check-in was long and confusing since we pre-registered and pre-paid but Manager- Brian (no uniform- looked unprofessional is shirt untucked) could not find the paperwork. It must've taken 20-25 minutes to figure it out only to have only 2 rooms ready. We were checking in at 2:30p. We needed 5 rooms. Ugh!!!!! There were also lots of security cameras that... More

On our way up to the Seattle area to visit relatives and needed to be between Tacoma and Seattle. Looking at the different reviews online, quite a few in this area had mixed reviews. The first two nights we stayed at two separate hotels, until we found this little gem! I had read a couple of the reviews in the... More

There were a few hairs on the sheets, and a stain, and I found two ants crawling on the comforter. We stayed here three nights, took advantage of the HBO at night, and were overall satisfied. The pillows are smaller than the standard size, and square, so we had trouble getting comfortable for awhile. Don't count solely on the continental... More
