We stayed here overnight. The food was great and they had an agreement with a local fitness club which was top notch. Definitely would stay again. They have a continential breakfast. The front desk allowed us to make a change even though she had our room ready .

Our overnight stay was very pleasant. This property has been upgraded. The new laminate flooring was a surprise, but much more pleasant than worn or soiled carpeting! The bed was very comfortable. Just wish that the individual room air conditioners were not so noisy.

Pros: location is good. Price is right. The room was fine. It serves it’s function - it’s a clean, safe place to spend the night. They have a can for recycling. Hot water was very hot. Wifi was good. The comfy chair in the room actually had a footstool. Surprisingly quiet for a roadside motel. General: the motel feels like a mom-and-pop motel. The steps to the second floor were half-size, as if Frank Lloyd Wright designed them. The AC unit was loud, but that provided white noise. Breakfast was better than expected, but still stripped down. Cons: is it even worth going into this? It’s an Econolodge. The plumbing fixtures in my room (212) had issues. There wasn’t enough water pressure at first to get the shower going. The stopper in the sink was down and the lever wasn’t connected. The toilet handle had to be held down through the entire flush cycle. Breakfast area is small. There was a faint odor in the hallways. They allow pets. Wifi 5/5. Value 5/5. Overall 4/5, graded on a curve and taking Value into account.

Good price. However you get what you pay for. Service was bare bones, room was too. Good location with easy on and easy off of the interstate. Breakfast is very very basic, not much but unhealthy basics. But for what we paid it was fair priced.

It was a delight being the stopover you needed here in Hays! It sounds like you found our breakfast very basic. Will you please call us at the hotel directly to elaborate on your breakfast needs? Currently we have scramble eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels, cream cheese, peanut butter, english muffins, toast , muffins varities , coffee, cereal, juice, oatmeal , hot chocolate, etc. We would like to improve our breakfast if you think this is not sufficient for what you pay. It would be an honor to host you again on a future trip.

Hotel was easy to find. It had a clean, well maintained room. Everything worked. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. This is not the EconoLodge of old. I would stay here again and again.
