We needed a roomy place to stay close to the hospital. It was my elderly dad and I. I couldn't find any other 2 bedroom suites in motel village, so we chanced it. I know this Econolodge doesn't look the greatest and it is right beside Denny's on 16th Ave. Anyways, the suite was about what I expected -- kind of dumpy, but relatively clean. It was more like a 2 bedroom apartment, with a large kitchen with lots of cupboards and full size appliances.
It was well designed, with the living room fairly large and the bathroom in between the bedrooms. There were large closets, hangers, 3 TV's and a beautiful rock fireplace. The rug was kind of old, and the wiring looked like it wasn't up to code but we didn't have any difficulties. The bathroom was very basic, but clean. There is storage space in the bathroom for personal items. We didn't use the sofa beds, but there were 2 of them. The beds were surprisingly comfortable.
The free breakfast wasn't much but it is what it is. Continental.
There was a washer and dryer in the suite, with a sign on them saying they didn't work. That was unfortunate as we needed to do laundry and the ones in the hotel basement are only available after 3 p.m. (often much later).
Staff was decent. Willing to help you with anything. There is no pool (we knew that).
The parking is good (right outside the room). The place could use a bit of a clean up and all that but otherwise decent.
I really liked how big the entire suite was. it fit my dad and I perfectly for 5 days while we took care of my mom. Yes, they are a little stingy on dishes etc. but I don't doubt that a lot of them get stolen.
