We stayed here to break a long drive in half. There's not much to this place. It is 2 stories and there is no elevator. The downstairs rooms also have doors out to the parking lot. That may explain why the downstairs rooms cost $10 more. We had a king room on the 2nd floor so, not wanting to leave... More

The EconoLodge in Hays was around $72 with aaa membership. Not bad, when you get waffles sausage and the usual breakfast do it yourself setup. The ac was cold, the bathroom was clean. However, I knock the room because it smelled bad. Not real bad but definitely a smoker stunk it up. Would I go back? I'm kind of spoiled... More

We stayed 1 night at the Econo Lodge on our way to Colorado and we would definitely stay there again. We wanted a cheap clean room to just shower and sleep. This was a very good decision. The room was clean and roomy. It did have a unique odor but not smelly. The clerk taking the reservation on the phone... More

We only stayed here for a one night stop over driving across country. This was a fine hotel for that. The room was clean (a little dim lit), girl @ front desk for check in was nice, bed seemed comfortable. I'm not sure I would have wanted to stay more than a night or two though. They put us on...

All the other hotels were full and this was not our first choice, however, it was clean and quiet. The room had some updates done to it and the bathroom. Front desk attendant was very pleasant. I would stay here again if i was passing through.

Clean, friendly, comfortable. Next door to Freddy's Frozen Custard, We ate supper there and went back later for desert. A Great place to spend a night over when traveling or in the area. We left before breakfast, but I saw a waffle maker and if attention is given to breakfast as the rest of their property, I'm sure it was... More

We stayed here on a road trip after a 13 hour drive. I was expecting to get the bare necessities here and was surprised to find a great room, comfortable bed, and a better breakfast that the more popular hotels offering breakfast. Overall great experience from check in to check out.

I will cut to the chase. I had low expectations and I was very surprised. Nice clean room. Good breakfast. Very helpful and friendly staff who truly went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. It is foolish to pay more when this place gives you more without the expense. We WILL stay there again.

The breakfast buffet was modest, but a... More
