The front desk was friendly and very helpful. My room was clean with a brand new comfortable bed. The hotel was recently remodeled and is very nice. The hotel is clolse to the highway with several resturants within walking distance. I would definately stay here again.

My family of 4 and our dog stayed one night while traveling to eastern Iowa.. The room, bathroom, and fridge were all clean. Found our bed to be comfortable and clean - no bed bugs! The entries were being remodeled - which didn't affect our stay. We were disappointed that the outside doors did not lock; however, we didn't have any problems. Nice hot breakfast. Easy check-in & check-out. When traveling in this area, will stay again. We were charged $10 for our dog.

The staff at Econo Lodge have always been friendly, helpful, and go out of their way. They always have my room ready for my weekly stay. I appreciate how accommodating they have always been. The location of the Econo Lodge is convenient as it's right off the highway and there are several restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side second floor are quieter.

Room accommodations were great, and rates were more than fair for everything going on in the area. Emma and Angie at front desk were very helpful in every way. Stay there, you won't be disappointed. Breakfast was your basic free breakfast. Very nice sports bar in same parking lot as Motel. Again not a vacation spot, but a good motel with good rates and friendly staff. Wireless internet was very easy, and believe it or not worked.

Room Tip: Tell staff what you need and they seem to try and accommodate your needs

The look of the building on the outside is downright ugly. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the look of the room. It was generally updated and clean. The bathroom needed to be updated. We did not have a shower curtain and had to call down to the office to get one installed. She was very nice about it. We did not have problem with a clean room but when we checked in, the gal was on the phone apologizing for putting someone in a room that had not been cleaned. The breakfast was you basic free breakfast entrees. Basically, you get what you pay for and this is a low budget motel for an overnight stay and not a vacation destination.

My experience with the Econo Lodge in Newton, IA was PERFECT! I stayed there for 10 days during the Southern Iowa Speedweek and Knoxville Nationals. My booking and room accommodations were exactly as I requested and nightly pricing was fair considering the local events in the area with the NASCAR Nationwide Series. This local owner could have charge much more for the nights I stayed and I really appreciate not being price gouged like I have in the past at other hotels in Knoxville area. Heima the manager made sure I was satisfied and really helped me out a lot with some special requests, she was the best! My room was very clean and Free Internet service was very fast as I needed it for business I had to do while staying there, very efficient. The free hot breakfast was also very good as well, the breakfast area was always stocked and very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a hotel in this area, I will be staying here again next year on vacation.
