Including the lady at the breakfast area who kindly put cartoons on for my children during breakfast. This hotel also has... More

This place was by farr the worst place i have ever seen in all of our travels around the world. I have never written a review because i have always been satisfied of places to stay, but i made a point to write this to avoid any other families from being stuck like us in this place.

We (3 of us) stayed the nights of July 18th & 19th, 2015. We saw the big Econo Lodge sign right away, but couldn't see any motel close by. We finally spied it setting about 200 yards away.

Spontaneously decided to take a cross-border overnight trip to Watertown. Decided to be frugal and Hotwire a room, a 2-star room to save money to shop! I've stayed in multiple hotels around Watertown over the years, sometimes using Hotwire, and have never been disappointed, even at low-mid-rated hotels. It took about 25 minutes to check in.

I was here about a year ago on business. I had heard that there were some improvements. They were wrong. Outdated rooms where the wallpaper has been painted and now is pealing. Uncomfortable mattress and noisy wall unit. There is not a bunch of affordable places for business travel in Watertown but, this is not the place.

Room was ok for that kind of price (60 USD), even though the TV seemed to be really old. Stayed there for one night, breakfast had all that I needed, but the breakfast room was pretty small. Nice staff and close to restaurants.
