I always stay at this Econolodge whenever I am in Bay City. The staff here are amazingly courteous and they will go out of their way to help you with any nonstandard requests. The hotel is always spotless and most of the facility has been completely refurbished. Based on the clientele I see there, it appears to be very popular...

My go-to hotel when in the Columbus area. A budget motel with many premium amenities. Great, attentive resident owners. Breakfast area is meager, but for the rate, perfectly acceptable. Another strong point is that they don't treat smokers like second class citizens, while still accommodating non-smokers comfort.

An overnight stop on our way north. Former HOJO'S under renovation. Pleasently surprised by staff. Some of the nicest we have met travelling. Easy on/off highway. Beds were comfortable, room was clean and spacious. Free newspaper at front desk (USA today). Coffee available in lobby all the time. Breakfast included standard fare including waffle maker. Good place to overnight.

We chose this hotel based on location, price and ease of access to the interstate during a vacation trip to northern Michigan. Online check-in was easy, and hotel reviews were accurate. Once we got settled in our room, it wasn't long until we were sound asleep!

This motel is directly off the highway. I was pleasantly surprise by the size of the room. Ceiling was nice, I know that sounds odd, but it was just different, high and slightly angled. I was a bit hesitant because there was no dead bolt or bar to lock. Weird little shelf that looked like there was a sink once...

We spent one night at the Econolodge in Bay City, Michigan while travelling through. The location is excellent as it is right off I75. The rooms, however, need some updating as well as the building itself. There was a musty smell to the building which was not very welcoming. The breakfast choices were limited and would have been nice to...
