Econo Lodge
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Hays
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I could tell my room had recently been renovated. Everything was very clean including the bathroom. There was a continental breakfast that included eggs, sausage links, waffles, fruit, cereal, biscuits, toast, and some pastries. The best part was the price...$52.99+tax! You can't beat that. I'll definitely be staying here again when I'm back up in Hays.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room if you want only an interior door.

We had to do an overnight in Hays recently and checked Trip Advisor for recommendations and found Econo Lodge at the top of the list. I have always avoided staying with this chain from a bad experience years ago. However, found this to be a very clean and comfortable place to spend the night. Breakfast was adequate, the beds were comfortable and it was very quiet for sleeping even though we were on a main drag just off I-70. The staff was very friendly and attentive too. Price was reasonable and there was a $10 fee for the dog.
Our dog said woof too.

I was on a second floor room with newly remodeled bathroom. Staff were very nice and knowledgable. For $60...refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, king bed, stone look tile and looked like real stone countertop in the bathroom, great showerhead. A "small flush/big flush toilet" which is water conserving I've only seen in european hotels. Way to go econolodge, recycling bins in the lobby. Breakfast area super clean and well organized. Waffles, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, sweets. Wow, for $60+ tax... $67 great deal. $10 pet fee, be warned. I had a parrot with me so had to pay the fee. But I was very impressed because other higher priced hotels often don't come with so many ameneties.

We were very pleased with our stay. We booked a 2 queen no smokung interior room for $59. The hotel is clean, beds comfortable, and breakfast plenty sufficient and included eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. The staff and manager Sean were very friendly and
helpful. Only drawbacks were some road noise and wear and tear showing in the bathroom, but for the money those minor things can be overlooked.

This was a clean and friendly motel. The breakfast was adequate, in a clean space. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone travelling through , whether just for overnight or several days stay. It is handy to all restaurants or stores. The management personnel are friendly and accomadating.

We had a great experience staying and when we travel again we will be sure to stay here, it was clean and warm feeling. Thank you so very much. All of the other motels were way out of range as far as cost, we were so glad we found this lovely motel
