This place is a dump! Halls smell of mold and cigarettes, Not a clean place. If it wasn't for the fact that we arrived so late I would have left and went somewhere else but didn't want to move the kids. There were cars of people in the lot doing whatever and they had a rock holding the security door... More

Its a bit out of the way - which is good for the parking... but not so easy for just a quick trip out. The rooms need some improvements (as from other posts, seems these have happened since my stay). Some of the rooms my group were in smelt pretty musty while others were fine. The breakfast was great. And... More

We've been touring america staying in motels for the last three weeks and this was probably the worst we stayed in. Nothing particularly wrong with it just tired looking, stained carpets that need replacing, bobbly be sheets that sort of thing. The staff weren't unfriendly but it seemed to be they were sitting around watching TV and you had to... More

Room was way overpriced. We had not pre-booked a room because we were not sure we would be driving that day so booked at the last minute. Hotels in the area were all sold out so we were charged way more than the room was worth and they would not give us a AAA discount. Room was large, but not... More

Convenient location across the street from shopping mall. Reception refused to give Choice Points as we used a hotel coupon so it was a good price. The hotel had been refurbished recently but our room, other than a flat screen TV, did not seem to reflect this. The hall carpets and doors are all new. There was a noticeable gap... More

My family and I were on our way to Wisconsin Dells and decided to stay at the Econo Lodge. We were just amazed by the cleanness, size, comfort of the rooms and the staff was very friendly. The hotel made a tremendous change to the rooms by adding flat screen TVs and new beds. On top of that we got... More

Great location right off the highway with a staff that is friendly. Essentially, at the budget price point, you get what you pay for, which means here a room without much personality (although you can request themed rooms), but is clean and comfortable. Our room was painted blah white and the lounge chair was missing, however, the bed was recently... More

I recently stayed with the EconoLodge in Madison,WI. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel has not only installed new carpet and bedding in all the rooms, but they have also added new flat screen tvs as well. The continental breakfast was a huge plus for value, too. They had waffles, toast, cereal (5 kinds), pasteries, juices, milk,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel since I always stay at Choice Hotels. I arrived late from a long days drive to an unwelcoming desk attendant. The room I was given smelled like dead fish. I know I should have changed the room, but being too tired and not wanting to talk to the desk attendant I stayed. In the... More

My co-workers and I experienced allergic reactions almost immediately after checking in here, which did not subside until after we left. The vents, heaters and carpets are filthy, but rather than keeping a clean hotel, they have opted to place an auto-spray deodorizer in the hallway, I assume to attempt to mask the smell of mold and mildew. I found... More
