The initial architecture of this facility suggests nothing fabulous, but the owners have exceeded every reasonable expectation to make it as nice as possible. The rooms are richly appointed for a hotel of this level: designer carpet, comfortable bedding, tan-painted walls with framed artwork, and even crown moulding. I would have appreciated a pillow top mattress, but it was still supportive. I was also pleased by the wall-mounted flat screen TV and generously-sized, in-room fridge. Even the outdoor walkways have been appointed with tile, while the seemingly outdated block exterior has been renewed with some type of resurfacing or coating.
The service of the employees I encountered was friendly and welcoming. Plus, the general upkeep of the hotel is rather meticulous. This carries over to the breakfast room, which is relatively small but nicely organized. Also, I appreciated the expanded continental breakfast, which included diy waffles, a choice of four cereals, hard-boiled eggs, toast, and an assortment of cold and hot drinks from two beverage machines (the tropical juice was delicious). However, I do wish they offered peanut butter as a condiment. Nevertheless, this marked a noticeable improvement over the neighboring Rodeway Inn's continental breakfast offering of only pastries and instant drink packets, where I once stayed with my family.
The only misgiving of this Econo Lodge is its location along the freeway. Highway noise is audible within the room (although I slept well since I wear earplugs when with the kids anyhow). Also, there are few choices to dine within walking distance. However, without even having to use the freeway, we drove five minutes north, where we found an Olive Garden and Souplantation.
Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice if you are looking for an affordable stay near Legoland.
