Chose the Econolodge River Falls because of other Trip Advisor Reviews. This location renewed my belief that a hotel could be clean, pleasant, reasonably priced, and pet friendly without being pet smelly. It's not luxury, but as a person who enjoys attending performance events with my small dog, it is exactly what I look for in a hotel. If you... 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 enjoyed my time in River Falls. Just wanted to get away from St. Paul. The breakfast was good. Customer service was great. The tv and wifi was good. I had a peaceful stay! I would tell others to stay here!

Also, the room was a lot nicer than I expected. Whole place has been recently re-done. New Carpeting. Pool and food area are clean. The name doesn't do it justice. Location is solid - about a mile from UWRF and just off HWY from MN. Will definitely stay again next time in River Falls or even nearby area.

I found the Econo Lodge Motel in River Falls to be a most pleasant surprise that more than met our needs. What impressed us the most, by far, was the staff there! Even my teenaged son was blown away by their courtesy, sincere concern and willingness to help. I cannot say enough about how helpful they were (both the desk... More

This place is very clean and nice. Other reviews say it was under different names before and might not have been as nice. You wouldn't know that today. Not only was the front desk staff accommodating, but they went out of their way for me when I had to check out at 8:00 pm on my second night because of... More

This place has recently changed hands from the Highland Inn to an Econo Lodge. With maybe one exception the the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were looking for an economical place to stay for the week and there are not a lot of options in River Falls. The room was very clean when we arrived and kept clean... More

It was good chatting with you to discuss the concerns you had. Previous owners let the place get pretty run down but the new owners have put a lot of money into the new place. Since you've been here we got all new carpet and furniture. We plug away at the things you mentioned and hope to have everything perfect... More
