We decided to leave early for a trip. Drove as far as I could and Decatur had a few hotels. Called the econo Lodge and asked how late they did check in. The lady I think her name was Kimberly was super friendly and helpful. We reserved a room straight they them instead of the sites because it was the same price. We got there at 1130 checked in super quick. Beds were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Every time I travel west delivering a Tour Bus this is my preferred stop just north of Dallas / Fort Worth on Highway 287. Good Tour Bus Parking on left side of Motel. The Staff here is very helpful, knowledgeable, and treat you like family. The rooms are Very Clean, up-to-date, with Flat Screen TV, plenty of Plug-ins, Frig, and Microwave. The bed is very comfortable, and bathroom / shower area very modern. Highly Recommend this Motel !!!!

Inexpensive decent overnight. Everything you need plus a fridge and ample toiletries. Hair dryer in room. Quite clean with exception of bathroom floor. Showing some wear and tear. Bed was a little soft for my taste and there's some road noise from the highway. Friendly staff. Pet-friendly. Seems well utilized by workers and truckers.

I stayed there last night with my two companions (dogs). The room was very clean, wonderful bed and great pillows. What I really appreciated was the well lit parking. My dogs needed to go out in the night and there was plenty of light that I didn't need a flashlight. I was not charged for my dogs stay. I had checked with another well known chain and it would have charged me $10 a piece. Next time I come this way they will have my business!!!

This was our second stay at this location. As before, it was clean and decently maintained, staff was friendly and efficient, and it is a great value. We have already made reservations there for our next trip through the area.

To be honest we never stay in Econo Lodge hotels because most of them are ran down & crappy! We decided to give this one a shot after reading all the great reviews. We were not disappointed. It's definitely a no frills hotel however we just needed a cheap place to stay for a few nights while we were in the area. When we walked into the room it smelled CLEAN! No weird odors. The room was clean. No complaints! Staff was nice & helpful. Breakfast was OK. I had scrambled eggs & sausage. A lot of parking for big vehicles with trailers. I would stay here again and recommend it to others looking for a cheep clean no frills hotel. It's no holiday inn express or Hampton inn but for the price it is a great choice!

I was passing through on a work trip and decided to stay here based on the reviews on this site. I can't say that I've ever stayed at a motel that left me happy enough to write a review, but this place is better than some $150-$200 hotels I've stayed at!!! The staff was extremely nice, the room smelled great, and the AC was already on in the room (I didn't even have a reservation)!!! The beds are comfortable and clean. There is parking for trucks and trailers!!! I might just plan my work trips where I can stay here every time I go out of town!!!!

This was a decent hotel for a decent price. Staff was nice and professional. Room was great, it was clean and well kept. Property was also clean and well kept. The only drawback was that there are no street addresses on buildings and most streets and roads have no road signs so it's kinda easy to get turned around. Overall, great stay!

Great place to stay..if your in the area highly recommend this motel if you want great hospitality, comfy beds and a very decent hot breakfast with 24 hour fresh coffee all at a great rate then this is the place.
