We decided on the Econo Lodge, based on Trip Advisor reviews, location to Interstate and the price ($68). Check was efficient and we found our room. It was larger than expected for the price and had everything you need, including charger stations in the lamps. There was a small fridge and microwave, as well as a hair dryer in the...

It's an EconoLodge - what do you expect? Room was clean, towels were fluffy and fresh, and front desk staff was very kind. It's not a Hilton or Marriott, but if you just are looking for a place to spend the night in the way through Kansas, this will do. Conveniently located - lots eateries nearby. The breakfast looked modest...

The room itself was very nice. We stayed with a baby and were able to stay in an inside room. The furniture was beat up, but very clean. There was minimal parking at the entrance. The free breakfast was horrible. There were two kinds of cereal, English muffins, and eggs and sausage.

If you are looking for a good bed...clean room...nice shower, reasonably priced...this is a good value in Hays. Better than average Econlodge. We'll stay again when we require this kind of stay. We've stayed other lower priced places in Hays and been disappointed.

It was an okay place to stay. Along a busy strip of businesses with restaurants and other motel options along the road. The motel is surrounded by parking lots. Room was clean and the breakfast was well stocked. Okay place to stay, would consider them again.

We stayed here for one night as we were traveling through Colorado. I read the other reviews and was fairly sure it would be ok but you never know! The front desk clerk was very friendly. The lobby is on the small side with I believe 4 tables/chairs. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was spotless. It was...

After a very long drive on I-70, we checked a few motels in Hays, KS. All we needed was a bed and shower, so the Econo Lodge worked out just fine. No frills, nothing fancy. Other locations offered pools and such, but we didn't need them anyway, so we opted for the better price half a block farther south of...

This was convenient to I70. It appears to have minimal upkeep. We had a room upstairs with no elevator. Fortunately we were able to pull out what we needed and leave the rest in the car. The lobby was a small area that shared the breakfast tables. The breakfast was very limited and not really what most would consider a...

The Econolodge popped up as a deal on Trivago with real positive reviews and now that we have stayed here, I would say that my wife and I agree. It has all your basics with no real flare. But, when you are just passing through, who needs flare. I'd rather save some money and just get what I need. The...

We stayed here to break a long drive in half. There's not much to this place. It is 2 stories and there is no elevator. The downstairs rooms also have doors out to the parking lot. That may explain why the downstairs rooms cost $10 more. We had a king room on the 2nd floor so, not wanting to leave...
