This is an old, cheap hotel that reopened less than 2 yrs ago with new carpet, new paint, and new furnishings - and the original thin walls, tiny & shoddy pool, hot & cold reversed faucets, and minimal "free" breakfast. This place has all of the class & quality of a fast food restaurant. At $20-$30 less than the 2... More

This is one of those motels where people live for awhile if you know what I mean. I stayed there during the UWRF Homecoming Days...however...there were no loud college students there or anything - mostly families and adults visiting for the weekend. The rooms were average for an Econo Lodge, breakfast pretty plain, no hot tub anymore, but did have... More

Although the hotel is tucked away behind other businesses, we found the employees very hospitable and the room was quite good. Nice and roomy. Bed was way too soft for us. But the layout and cleanliness made up for any other deficiencies. They also give you free breakfasts, which included waffles, cereals (hot and cold) bagels, toast, pastries as well... More

There are not many lodging options in this area of the state; we chose the Econolodge based on price and reviews. The hotel is clean and fairly basic. The front desk staff was friendly, the breakfast was a very basic continental, and the hotel was clean. The room actually had such a strong smell from cleaning that we had to... More

Stayed at this EconoLodge based on user reviews. To me this chain is adequate at best. I was quite surprised at how nice and well appointed our room was, as well as the hotel overall. Set in a quiet location off the main drag it was easy to find. Check in fast, courteous staff. First clue this was going to... More

Came to River Falls to kayak. Stayed at the Econo Lodge because of the ratings. We were greeted happily by a gentleman at the front desk. Our original room had a funky smell. He was quick to find us a different room. In fact, he let us check out two rooms before we decided. Nice clean rooms and nice employees.

One of the front desk employees, Ali, was extremely helpful in getting my group a room when our reservations at another location in town fell through. I highly recommend this hotel. I will stay here when I come to town next time

I was blown away by my stay...Check in was late at night and I was waited on by a very friendly guy that was precise on everything..I used CLC for a great rate....I was... More
