“nice, comfortable, cozy motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We spent one night here on our trip to a reunion and found it a clean, comfortable and quiet motel. It has only one floor and our room had a vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan. We had a "woodsy" view out our window although it was only a mile or so from a major mall. It's tucked in back, out of the way but very convenient to restaurants and shopping.
Although it has a tiny breakfast room it was adequate.
My only complaint would be the difficulty with getting the free WiFi in our room. Could only connect in the lobby.
It was a good value for the money and I would definitely recommend it.

We stayed at the Econo lodge while we were just passing through. We stopped pretty late in the evening and did not want to stay somewhere pricey. The hotel had a stale food odor when walking in. It wasn't a dirty smell but not appealing either. The front staff desk was friendly. Our room was just ok. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were comfortable as well. The vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan was a nice touch. That is about a far as it goes. When walking in the room it had a musty smell. It wasn't horrible but wasn't a clean smell that I would like to have in my room. The bed spreads were dated and didn't smell fresh either. When I pulled the sheets down to go to bed the sheets on bottom had two large spots. It resemble a grease stain.We switched to the other bed. It was clean. The bathroom door was hard to pen and close. It had some damage (looked like water damage) on the bottom and would rub the tile when you tried to close it. I probably wouldn't choose to stay here again. It was ok to crash for a few hours but I wouldn't want to stay much longer.

I really enjoyed this hotel. The lady at the front desk was very kind and courteous. The room has high ceilings, and decently comfortable beds. The breakfast was basic, nothing special but it was good (coffee, english muffins, yogurts etc.) My only major complaint is that the television in my room did not have as many channels as advertised on the channel card in the room. I got basic channels like ABC but most of the channels were blank and not coming through. I would say I got around 10 channels of basic cable, and not the 20+ that was on the card.

I normally stay away from sleeping in economy type motel rooms….they can be scary. I was a bit nervous all the way up to sliding my room key in the door. Surprisingly, I found a motel room that was worth the price of $69. Clean and comfortable enough for a night stay.
FYI..I was informed the motel will be remodeling in the near future.

We were in town for a wedding. I normally don't stay at motels, but I was with my parents...I was pleasantly surprised, for a motel, it wasn't too bad.
The only things to complain about...the TV was dated and barely had any channels, including NBC and the complimentary breakfast was a joke :(

We stayed here this past weekend while in town for a bachelorette party. We wanted a quiet and comfortable place because we wanted to be able to sleep in after going out and one of the members of our party recently had a baby who was going to be staying at the hotel all night with her family.
The beds were super comfortable and the pillows amazing! It was very quiet, and we got pretty much everything we had wanted out of the Econo Lodge.
I do not stay in Eau Claire often, but the next time I do, I will definitely be staying here again :-)

This is a quiet location kind of hidden back off the main street. Nice big room all one level. They are dog friendly with a $10 per dog charge. They have dog rooms convenient to outside door. Front desk staff when we checked in was very friendly. Eau claire is a busy location glad we stayed here. Liked the vaulted ceiling made the room feel even bigger. We would stay here again.
