we stayed here, thankfully for only one night-got in late and left early. Our room smelled horrible, like some kind of a perfume-y smell that was sprayed to cover up another smell. It made my throat itch. The beds were semi-comfortable. The bathroom was not very clean- thankfully we only used it to brush our teeth. There was dust and... More

Did not expect much for $54. Bed was OK. Room floors could have used a cleaning. Hall carpeting must have just been installed and was not vacuumed yet. Breakfast was good. Location was next to 3 other hotels. Shower worked fine. The money saved on just needing a bed, shower, and breakfast can be used for shopping at the near... More

The lady checking us in was very nice, as was some of her family, who must hang out behind the desk ? We had 2 rooms. Room 1- stains on bedspread, busted up lampshade, both lamps not working. One lamp did work after switching outlets, which was alittle scary, as the outlet covers are broken and cracked. The air/heat unit... More

I have stayed at the Econo Lodge East in Fargo for at least 50 nights during the course of this year. The staff is very friendly and courteous, the rooms are always clean and have the necessary amenities. For a hotel where the rooms typically run for less than $75, this is great value. I will keep coming back here... More

We stayed here out of desperation but were sorry right away. The bed was broken down in some way and overly soft with no support. The wiring throughout the room was obviously not up to code with cords dangling everywhere I would sleep in my car before I would stay here again. It wasn't clean either. Nasty in every way.

friendly service and accommodations were met.Bed was comfortable, and room was clean, the only suggestion would be to have tv guides in the rooms so a person knows what channels are what and what is viewing.

We're not ones to write harsh reviews but if you rely on Trip Advisor reviews (like we did) it's important to be honest. The front desk clerk was painfully annoyed to even take one of his two ear buds out when we showed up and it went downhill from there. Our room was shabby, obviously not cleaned, and had clothes...

The most important thing we look for in a hotel is cleanliness. Unfortunately, this one dropped the ball. Cons: The carpet was incredibly filthy. Our feet were black and sticky if we walked barefoot. They seriously need to replace the carpet. Our feet left black footprints on the bottom of the tub when going in to shower. The coffee maker... More

A no-frills, budget hotel in need of updating. We stayed in a lower level room, worn down through years of use, with bare bulbs (no fixture) over the bath mirror, multiple holes in the entry door where the chain latch had been replaced, and re-replaced, and chafed and worn woodwork. The complimentary breakfast is similarly bare-bones, with minimal selections and... More

We apologize for the issues with your room. We are working hard at getting things fixed or changed completely.
