“Friendly but needs an overhaul”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Friendly; not too expensive; but wifi works intermittently and breakfast doesn't amount to much.
If they improved the wifi, improved breakfast and did some repainting, then this would be an excellent place to stay.

Very welcoming and friendly. I am on the road most of my life and it seams that nobody wants to chat with customer anymore but not this motel manager. Tall, friendly guy with accent new all about La Crosse area, pretty knowledgeable and glad to share with us. He made sure that we know our ways around and we had a blast that night going to places he recommended .
Definitely we will be back when in this area. Clean, cozy and overall nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for Theme rooms, they are happy to upgrade whenever they can.

We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us Lasica! Next time you're with us, we recommend the Loft theme room! That one is usually a guest favorite. Hope to see you again soon!

Came of the freeway w/o reservation and still got the best rate in town. If you are looking for luxury not really place for you but if you are like me looking for clean, comfy room with EVERYTHING you need such as frig, microwave, coffee in the room, iron etc. I was pretty impressed what economy motel such as this one can offer for the price that they charge. Definatly can recomend to any one.

Room Tip: cute Garden room

First off I get that the price is cheap. The guy working the front desk was helpful. That being said this was pretty dirty. The floors were disgusting and the fixtures were nasty. The beds were comfortable enough and it worked for the night. I will say I didn't expect to get breakfast for the cheap price. They had cereal, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, bananas and coffee. That made it worth the stay. We won't be here again but if you need a cheap room fast, and don't mind the dirt, check it out.

We are very sorry that your stay didn't meet all your expectations Brad, and thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention! While we are an older, economy-friendly establishment, we do view the cleanliness of our rooms as a high priority, and I apologize that your time with us did not reflect that. You review helps us immensely in working towards avoiding this kind of lapse in the future.

We have stayed with choice hotels before, and this Econo Lodge was among the more unique ones we have stayed in. It has a ton of character! The staff was pleasant and helpful, and we had a really nice conversation with the owners too. It's rare to be able to chat with the owner now-a-days, and it gave us a more authentic feel. That's just something we like though! Regardless of if you want to stay in the themed rooms, ask if one is available for you to see. They're so quirky and fun to experience! We had the South Seas room and it is definitely something that defined our stay! One thing to keep in mind is that there are no elevators. Luckily they weren't full so they could switch us to first floor, but I would recommend mentioning that when making a reservation if stairs are an issue. Overall great experience in great location for fair price!

Needed a cheap room to attend our daughter's graduation since we knew we wouldn't be spending much time there. We were given the Sheikh Room and we had to laugh out loud when we opened the door. It is completely silly, but that's the kind of fun you don't expect in a chain. We weren't even around long enough to use the hot tub or take advantage of the breakfast, so can't comment on either. The room was clean, the fridge and microwave looked new (although there was a box of fruit bars in the freezer that someone must have forgotten--staff should check all the extras in the room). We could hear goings-on outside for most of the night and early morning, but they were muffled and not too bothersome.
