You get what you pay for

The staff was a bit unwelcoming upon arrival but it was a rainy day so I didn't let it get to me. They offer a breakfast for the morning however it is poorly stocked by the front desk attendant and compromises of donuts, cereals, and microwaved egg omelette-type thing. The room was standard but the bathroom light was more of a heat lamp than a light bulb. All in all it was pretty standard for the EconoLodge but the staff was probably the worst part.

Economical place to stay

Clean and economical, in a great location. The hotel is very basic without many extra comforts.

Solid lodging

We just needed a night to spend in the middle of a long car trip. Room was a bit warm, but ok since it was sub zero outside.

Clean and cheap

It's been a long time since my wife and I slept in a double bed. Kinda cozy! This is a no frills motel, and obviously a bit older, but it was clean and the price was right. We'd stay again.

There's a free continental breakfast at the hotel, but it is the usual blah affair. Use the money you saved and pop across the street to Panera for a really nice breakfast. Panera opens at 6am weekdays.

Don't let the name fool you!!

I was on my way to Chicago for a business meeting. It was getting late and needed a room and ended up at the Econo Lodge. This hotel was above and beyond my expectations and it just blew my mind. The room size and cleanness was fantastic. The hotel made a huge change by adding new TVs and beds. There would be no question that I will come back to this hotel.

Cheap, but still not a good value

Made resvn via Orbitz on cell app -- no opportunity for AAA or senior discount. Many signs about non-smoking, but several burns on toilet seat from cigarettes. Shower ran hot and cold -- all on one setting. Soap is hard to wash off with their treated water. Carpets are dirty. VERY frugal supply of towels. Room smelled like they use diesel fuel for cleaning or killing bugs or whatever. Lots of older single men "hanging around". Extensive video surveillance -- suggesting ?!?!?!? I sure won't stay there again.

OK but noisy

everything was good until our neighbors come home drunk at 1 a.m. -- the walls are thin and we heard too much!
