“Older place but clean and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Spent one night here and found the staff friendly and helpful. This is an older property but clean and well maintained. Basic breakfast. Some units in the back are two story. Overall a decent stay for a good rate. Nice firm bed, clean bathroom, nice shower head.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

The bathrooms and carpets were clean and maintained well. No mold in the bathroom!!!! It smelled good. Besides the smallness and the young crowd that showed up late at night and was very loud this was a good night’s sleep. The staff was very professional and was able, willing to accommodate any needs asked of them that was in their power. I stayed there for two nights with my family and would stay there again. It was a very affordable place to stay. Thank you

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side top level was a good place to stay.

We had to make an emergency trip and when I called to see if they allowed pets, I was pleasantly surprised at Missy, the lady that answered the phone of how very kind and pleasant she was. She took time with us (unlike other motels) and when we checked in, she even asked if we were hungry and what kind of food we liked and offered some places nearby to eat. This is one of the highest recommendations that I could give with a customer service like this. I hope they appreciate the good employee they have and this is what made us stop at this location.

The staff was very friendly. We received a discount as we were part of a Spirit Mind & Body Fair. The room was very comfortable and nice and warm. Since we were having freezing cold weather they had turned the heater on for us.

The bed was very comfortable and we had the necessary essentials.

They also had breakfast in the morning. However I did not partake. However, I did hear that it was very good.

All in all, I was very satisfied.

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Topeka for many weeks while moving to the area. I was first concerned because the outside was original and hadn't been updated to look like more modern properties. Was I wrong to be concerned! The rooms have all been updated, the beds are very comfortable and the A/C units work great! I like to keep a cool room and they didn't disappoint. Also, the noise was very low from the highway as the rooms were built very solid and you can't hear anything really outside.

The staff and housekeeping was also a plus. The staff are very friendly and greet you by name. The housekeepers always had the rooms cleaned very well with no issues. I was very impressed. I also had the opportunity to meet the manager/owner and he was wonderful to talk to and was on top of all aspects of the property.

I would recommend this hotel for all that are looking for a great stay in a great room. Nothing outlandish or fancy, but a great nights sleep. The hotel put their money into what's important; a great room, nice comfortable beds and wonderful service.

Room Tip: Ask for the family suite if you are coming to Topeka with family. It is a huge room with two king b...

The outside looks very dated. However, the rooms were clean, freshly painted, and the rugs looked almost new. The pool needs an update, but was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good too. This hotel is good for a one or two night stay. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Don't let the outside scare you.

Check in process was excellent and easy as the staff was great and very accommodating. Surprisingly very large rooms excellent compared to newer hotels. Easy access to major streets made this hotel a big plus. I would definitely make this a regular for all my Topeka trips. Older style Econo Lodge but in excellent condition and you can tell has been upgraded with modern amenities. Definitely a must stay when in town. Great Value!!!
