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

Hello valued customer. I sent a couple emails inquiring about your concerns but I didn't hear back from you. I'm greatly concerned that your stay experience seems to have been very poor vs the average experience of our other customers. I hope you can find the time to contact me directly so we can get a little bit better handle... 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

Staff was friendly at checkin. Room was clean. Nice pool, although I did not use it. The only thing wrong with the room was the carpet was torn, looked like it had two beds at one time and was replaced with a king and maybe tore the carpet? not sure. Breakfast was pretty sparse with not much selection. Otherwise good... More
