“Good travel stop”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Stopped here on the way back from South Dakota. Selected based on price from airline website. This is a good selection. Convenience to highway and many places to eat. Room was average but above average for price. Breakfast is below average for comparative continental offerings. In general, if you need a place to stay along the road and just want a quiet nights sleep, this place works.

We just needed a place to stay on our way across the UP. We didn't expect much from the Econolodge, and it was about what we expected. The room was moderately clean, the staff seemed a little annoyed to have to wait on us (we DID arrive around 10:00 pm; thought we'd be there sooner). There was a hair dryer, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. We had trouble getting the volume on the television to go down, but the remote worked otherwise. It was quiet and we got a decent night's sleep. I wouldn't stay there more than the single night we did, because Econolodges in general are just not very plush - but it was fine for what it was... a step up from a motel.

This motel needs a lot of help. Both with upkeep and staff development. When we arrived at 3:30 pm, I asked to see a room and was told that it was too late to cancel. I reminded them that I had until 4 pm to cancel, so she gave me a key without saying anything. Later she said she thought we had reserved through a travel agency. No apology. The staff was very unfriendly. The faucet in the bathroom needed repair and the AC was so noisy(rattled when the compressor started) that we could not run it at night. I know that this is an economy motel and I was not expecting a Marriott, but friendly, helpful staff doesn't cost anything, it pays! How this motel received a high rating I'll never know! Never again.

This hotel is a good value for a low price. Nothing fancy but clean and quiet. We got a room on the first floor since there isn't an elevator. There was a small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. Great place to stop as we pass through the area.

If you normally stay in a 5 star hotel, this is not for you. BUT, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay, this is it. I would have appreciated an elevator, so if you have troubles with stairs, request a first floor room. I liked that there was a small fridge and a microwave. They have coffee in the breakfast area, so you don't need a pot in the room...

OK, nothing great but nothing terrible either.
What we got was a room that was pretty small so don’t expect to be able to lay out all of your things. There was a small refrigerator and microwave (no coffee pot) sitting on top of the dresser, probably because there wasn’t any room for them anywhere else. There was an iron and ironing board but I haven’t a clue where you could possibly use it. The mattress I slept on seemed to sag just a little but it was still pretty comfortable as a result of a thick pillow-top. The heat/AC was adjustable by thermostat and seemed to work well. The bathroom was surprisingly large and comfortable and stocked with plenty of towels.
The biggest problem is that the rooms are dated and there weren’t ANY extra outlets. There are very few of us traveling these days who don’t have an electronic gadget that needs to be plugged in and this room failed miserably to accommodate that need.
Minimal continental breakfast.
All in all though, as a stopover, this is a good value.
