Skip the Econo Lodge and try one of the other motels in Wall. On second thought, skip Wall, South Dakota all together!
The Econo Lodge was by far the worst place we stayed on our whole road trip. The first room we were assigned to had very obviously been smoked in- it smelled terrible. When I told the clerk that we had asked for a non-smoking room she did have us try another room and then switched us but didn't seem that concerned about the fact that people had been smoking in the non-smoking rooms. She said there was nothing she could do about it.
The second room smelled better but was still sub-standard even for a cheaper motel. There were flies every where in the room, the toilet didn't flush properly and it was just generally run down.
They advertise "breakfast included" but by the time we got there all that was left were some donuts. For those of us whon don't eat donuts for breakfast, this supposed perk wasn't.
Overall our entire experience in Wall was awful. There are no decent restaurants (they are overpriced and provide lousy service) and the "world famous" Wall Drug is nothing but a bunch of tourist trap type stores, selling junky stuff connected by hall ways. A big disappointment.
We suggest you skip Wall, South Dakota all together and go to another one of the charming small towns we found along the way i South Dakota!
