We stayed at this Hotel in Silver City with the intention on continuing through the mountains to I-40 the next day and seeing the countryside on the way to Flagstaff. The rain soon changed those plans, but thanks to the convienence of the Econo Lodge in Silver City, I was able to use their free internet service to change course and make alternate plans. The staff is pretty young, but very nice. Amy was especially cool in helping me with some of the roads and restaurants in the area. She was patient and attentive in answering my touristy questions so I could figure out my plans for the next day's driving. This was more helpful than she probably realizes and I appreciate it.
As for the hotel itself, you can see it from the highway, but the parking lot is in the back and a bit cramped. No matter though, the inside of the hotel is clean and well-maintained. I have a feeling Amy gave me a room right next to the lobby on the bottom floow since I had the wife and three small kids with me. A BIG help for unloading the baggage in the heavy rain outside. The room was huge in comparison to other rooms we had stayed in on our trip. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were small and the water pressure was marginal, but this is an economy hotel. Pretty standard. Everything clean and nice.
I wish we would have had time to use the heated INDOOR pool and jacuzzi! I took a look at it and it was REALLY nice! An indoor heated pool and jacuzzi is NOT indicitive of an economy hotel.
The free breakfast in the morning was standard, but well stocked. The waffle maker was nice as this made the kids happy. That bottom floor room next to the lobby REALLY made it nice to get the food and eat it in the room. With the kids, this was ideal.
Just a note, a good restaurant that's open until 9pm (Most places in Silver City close at 8pm) is the Golden Corral. This is a all you can eat steak/ribs/etc buffet that it pretty reasonable and the food is dynamite! I paid $25 for 2 adults and 2 kids and we pigged out. The help was attentive and one of the cooks even made a cheese pizza especially for my son since they didn't have any available. Nice people and good food. Hope they expand to So Cal.
Anyway, I was really impressed with the Econo Lodge and it's staff. Young, but very competent. A good deal all the way around.
