The rooms are clean and housekeeping did a great job, the staff is nice and helpful, and the pool is great! It was quiet and had a good night's sleep on a good bed. Close to Joplin and surrounding sites. Would stay again.

Quiet with a nice pool and hot tub. The rooms did smell bad on this trip so we got some fabreeze to help with that. Staff has always been pleasant. And they have a good continental breakfast. We will stay again.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. However, the outside door wasn't working and had to carry all luggage through the hotel. Don't come here thinking your going to get a good breakfast. Waffle maker just seems to make half a waffle.

Our room was in a quiet corner, nice & clean. Most of the facility has recent improvements including new carpet. The breakfast bar has the usual + biscuits sausage & gravy (better than most these days.) Staff was courteous & helpful, a new/trainee desk clerk did a good job & housekeeper was very knowledgeable. We didn't actually swim or hot... More

Extremely poor conditions sink clogged up, boogers on towels sitting on tub side, when ask for more towels was given with pink lip stick on extra towels given to us. When told desk clerk nothing was offered to make out stay better. Cold sausage for breakfast overall the worst hotel to stay in.

I am deeply sorry to hear about the service you received during your visit to Carthage, MO! It is in no way acceptable to overlook handing out dirty towels-nor is it okay for our desk clerks to not acknowledge the issue/your concern. We constantly try to update our facility, staff, and supplies to better suit guest needs. We hope that... More

We had to stay here on short notice due to nasty weather in the area we were headed. Britney (sp) was very helpful with check-in and with a minor maintenance issue (operator error). To activate the shower you must pull down on the spout outlet. Clean and comfortable for one night. Breakfast was so-so, OJ not good but applejuice was... More

We travel frequently between Lubbock Texas and Springfield MO. We stop at exit 8 in Joplin to stay. We have enjoyed the Econolodge there. (Formerly Baymont) We have stayed at this hotel 10-12 days in the last year. The pool is 24 hours and is always great even in the dead of winter. The rooms are always clean and fresh.... More
