Overnight stay on way home

It was ok. I only needed a place to sleep for the night. I was a little irritated by the location of the ice machine. I was told it was in the guest laundry room. In the morning when I went to get some ice so I could have cold water for at least part of the drive, I found the door was locked, so I skipped it (it was a regular deadbolt lock). I had not been informed of the guest laundry being locked when I checked in. Other than that the stay was satisfactory, if overpriced.

Problems with services

Room is OK, but expected service barely work: #1. Could not open the door (2 days stayed there). Front desk made 4 keys (cards) - none worekd OK (showed red light). Eventually opened the door by wiggling the handle up and down. Front desk (some woman there) was very unfriendly, ignored the problem, told me to wait while she took care of customer who come after me. #2. The TV reception failed at about 6 PM and stayed off untill night. (ther was NO TV program for 4 hours). Front desk responded "they know it, all customers are calling", but nothing was done for hours. #3. WiFi is VERY slow and workad "spradically", it taked "minutes" to connect anywhere, I was cut 3 times while checking bank account (this is not not data used). -- the service desk seems unfriendly and NOT caring about any problems.

not this place, ever again.

Room was dismal. Broken clock. Broken outlets. The odor in the room was horrible -- either pet urine, or something had died. Huge stain on side of mattress -- again, blood, or old pet urine. A/C not working. Disgraceful. Towels ratty. Sheets stained. Pillows horrible. But again, the odor was nearly overpowering.

great for the $

We got a discount rate which made it a good deal . The next day NAU had students arrive and the rate tripled. I would never pay that much for this hotel but at the lower rate its a good deal. Clean room , nice size , friendly staff.

Great Location, Great Staff, Poor Room Quality

The location is great. Near gas stations and food. Also close to the highway. The staff was exceptionally nice and caring about all our needs. Our first room had a horrible smell and the staff quickly changed our room without any questions. The room was standard, a little musty, and literally just a bed to sleep on. Ok if you are traveling without that much money and need a quick place to crash.

You get what you pay for

The lady at the front desk was very friendly and check-in was quick and easy. She even called to make sure everything was OK in our room. Unfortunately, the things that were not OK were not something she could have improved. The outer comforter, which we all know is not washed every time, was dirty. There was a yellowish stain across a five foot section of the wall, and there was mold in the bathroom that looked like it had been painted over. The carpet is purposely very dark so that you cannot tell how dirty it is. In summary, you really get what you pay for. We didn't pay much for the room, and next time I'd pay a little more to not stay here. If you are a poor student, then it's surely fine to stay here, but for everyone else, there are better options for $15-20 more per night.

Place to rest your head

Nothing to write home about here: old facility with a small outdoor pool in middle of parking lot, old tube tv in room, hard to get to wall outlets, slowwwwww wi-fi. Perks though: clean room, comfortable bed, strong shower with infinite hot water, the AC unit stays on in fan mode after desired temperature is met (which is nice so its not annoyingly cycling on/off). Bottom line: at $70/night with tax, this is a place to sleep in a pinch, but there is definitely better value to be had at other hotels nearby.

better than i expected

I didnt realize that it was pride in the pines weekend. I usually stay closer to town, so i dont have to worry about driving. The hotel was recently remodeled and not too far frim down tiwn. I was happy that there was a heated pool, but still couldnt get in, because it was cold.The next time that i want to get out of the heat, i will keep this on the list.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Call a cab early. It is a tad too far to walk back at 1 am from the bar.

Awesome family vacation trip

Our first trip to Flagstaff & the Grand Canyon. Our experience with EconoLodge University & its staff was truely enjoyable.. Everything staff did was awesome and it showed on how they went out of their way to make us comfortableand feel welcomed. I would surely recommend EconoLodge University to all that we know and we will surely use EconoLodge University as our hotel of choice.
