“Unsatisfactory. ”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Picked this hotel because of the great reviews.

Just checked in our room. The employee at the front desk was unfriendly and lacked the knowledge of any kind of customer service. The floor next to the tub was wet. Found dirt and hair in tub and when started water, the water was yellow? Almost vomited. Bed sheets has strands of hair on it and the comforter has trances of dirt. Feeling pretty uncomfortable laying on their bed right now writing this review...

We stayed at Motel 6 yesterday in Alberta and it was just fantastic. Everything you would not expect from a motel but from a hotel. Our dog even stayed free of charge (vs. Econo Lodge charge $10). It was unfortunate that the TripAdvisory iPhone app did not show Motel 6 in Winnipeg.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

I am sorry to hear of the poor experience you had while at our hotel. The events you describe are definitely not the level of service and cleanliness we strive for everyday at the Econolodge as you can see by our other online reviews this is definitely not the norm for our hotel. We will be taking immediate corrective steps with our guest services and housekeeping staff to ensure this shortcoming does not occur again.

I am sorry you did not feel comfortable contacting the front desk to discuss the condition of your room as we would have immediately moved you to another room. We do our best to keep our pet rooms as clean as possible

We appreciate you taking the time to write this review so we can ensure that this does not occur again.

Again, please accept our heartfelt apologies.

I had just come to stay here for the night on years and my gosh was that a good decision. While entering the lobby i was immediately welcomed by not 1 but 2 staff members. That front Desk lady (i think her name was Karol) i cant remember, was extremly polite to me! Already i was happy with my choice at staying at the Econo lodge. There was a beautiful christmas tree set up that really made the environnement cozy and warm. Apon arriving in my room, my frist reaction was "wow". I loved the colors in the room, it smelt great in there! and everything was top notch and clean. My view was of the corner of st marys and dakota.was nice to look out to. Although i only stayed there for the night i slept very well in those cozy beds! When i woke up the next morning i could smell the delicious aroma of waffles coffee and muffins.mmmm! When i came down the staires i was greeted with a good morning and asked how my sleep was. Breakfast was great, fresh, hot and ready to go. they have very tasty muffins! Props to whoever made them. All in all i had a really good experience at the Econo lodge. I will forsure stop by again if i ever need a place to stay.

The rooms were newly renovated and clean. The room had its own Cold/Hot LG air conditioning units, flat screen TV, Free Wi Fi. The best thing about this hotel is the staff in the reception, they are friendly and helpful I will stay there again whenever I will visit Winnipeg.

Room Tip: It is only one level and even it is close to the road it was quite

My wife and I just spent 8 days at this great little affordable "E Lodge". A very pleasant surprise in an unusual location in a stripmall on a rather busy 4 corners, though entrance and exit from the parking lot was easy. Our room was newly and tastefully renovated and very clean. The beds were super comfortable and the heater / AC in the room ran quietly. At a time when many hotels are reducing wattage in the lights, our room was well lit and also very quiet. We arrived with a lot of luggage from several weeks on the road and the staff insisted on helping us up the stairs. Everybody was professional, friendly and helpful. The location is close to several restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and "The Mall". We highly recommend this place and will stay there again, next trip to Winnipeg.

My husband and I travel with our dog so made this reservation as they could accommodate us in the St. Vital area. What a pleasant surprise to find such a well maintained motel. Our room was very nice and very clean. The staff (Carole, especially) was so personable and professional. We highly recommend this motel and we will certainly be back.

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! I know for a fact that the staff enjoy our pet guests almost as much as the human ones! We are a hidden gem in a strip mall with tons of services close by. We get so many compliments on our clean and comfortable rooms; the renovations that were completed last year were done with the travellers comfort in mind. We hope we see you on your next trip to Winnipeg.

Im always very reluctant when i book a room as they are often quite noisy. Econo Lodge was not only quiet, but very clean and comfortable. The location is great and has most amenities within walking distance and the hotel offers a fantastic continental breakfast in the morning. Highly recommend especially for travellers by road as its location is fairly close to Hwy #1. Rolly M.

Hotel is clean and bright with all new amenities in an older building. Friendly, helpful staff encountered. Nice sports pub with good food next door. Quite happy with my little find on the road. Hotel does not have an elevator, but staff were at the ready to assist with luggage for those that would find this to be an issue. Wireless interenet at times a bit finicky too. Very basic continental breakfast offering.

We agree with you that our hotel offers great value for the budget minded traveller yet offers the style and comfort of a more upscale hotel. Not having an elevator for our guests is an inconvenience of our older building; but our staff is always ready to assist guests with luggage and we do have storage available in the lobby area if needed. Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Winnipeg.
