New beds...although they are hard as a rock,they are new! They could have bought medium firm or something other than rock hard! I always check mattresses before bringing my stuff in...I was so happy when I saw new,clean Beautyrest mattresses. But then I slept,or tried to sleep,on them...so hard. Floors looked clean until you got close to furniture. They must have not moved the furniture out when they cleaned the carpets. It was soiled with black around all the edges of the dresser/tv center and beds. The breakfast was mini,cheap muffins and danishes,juice and coffee. It was a diabetic nightmare for even non-diabetics! The hotel is right next to highway so you can hear traffic all night,mainly semis. The floors shake,1st or 2nd floor,the floors shake. My daughter asked if there was an earthquake! We were on 1st floor. I was charged a price $10 higher than the website told me,but didn't realize it until we had left.
Most people are tired when arriving at a motel, as we were. This is the reason lots of people accept this kind of place. The pro's were a comfortable bed, good air conditioning and the water and shower worked well. The con's were no Wi-Fi, and believe me, no one attempted to fix it. No coffee in the room for the next morning. The cold water handle in the sink would fall off each time an attempt was made to use it. The community ice machine didn't work, nobody was checking on the breakfast bar, and there was very slim pickings to choose from. We saw two banana's, shared one and another guest quickly took the remaining one. After that at least 3 people arrived looking for some fruit, but of course the motel staff was no where to be found to replenish the breakfast bar for additional guests. The breakfast was designated from 6 to 9 a.m., but by 7:30 there was almost nothing to choose from. We stayed in two other Econo Lodges, the one in Lubbock for one night, and the one in Fredericksburg for three nights. Shame on this one in Dumas, it disgraces the chain of Econo Lodges compared to these other two fine Econo Lodges.
Pulled into town after a long drive from central Colorado, and needed a place to rest for the night. Since the parking lot was relatively empty and I didn't have a reservation in-place, we stopped here. Although the price was less expensive the neighboring properties, it was obvious that you get what you pay for. The hallway was not air conditioned, which made me worry about what I was getting when I opened my room door. The room was cooled by a window-unit air conditioner that had some issues with the control dials. My bed was somewhat comfortable, but seemed more like a full-size instead of a queen. The carpeting and fixtures were obviously worn, but that wasn't surprising for the price. We didn't bother with the free breakfast since there were other dining options just down the road. Although the price was competitive, I'm not sure I'd stay here again?
This is a budget motel but it is very clean and the bed was comfortable. It is not very impressive when you first walk in but give it a chance. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The breakfast is not much at all but I did eat it and the coffee was good.
We decided to try the Econo Lodge on our return trip. What a mistake. We would have asked for our money back and gone to a better motel, but we're just too tired after a ten hour car ride. To give them credit, as well as two stars, the beds were clean and comfortable. Everything else was terrible. The carpet along the walls was visibly filthy with dust and dirt. The curtain barely covered the window and it took a lot of work and effort on my part to make the room dark enough to sleep in since the parking lot had very bright lighting. Then I wanted a shower. I have been in swimming pools in Phoenix Arizona that had warmer water than this motel. Very warm at best doesn't cut it. Now I'll describe the breakfast. Stale powdered sugar donuts, hard muffins, fruit loops, and some kind of flakes. That isn't what bother me. I've eaten stale food before and probably will again. But dang it, I expect a hot cup of coffee in the morning before starting out for another long drive, not tepid garbage. Really, a hot cup of coffee, and I wouldn't even have bothered to write a review. So, if you only want a clean bed to sleep in, and and don't mind a semi dark room, this place isn't half bad. But I wouldn't ever stay here again. I'm surprised that the Choice group of hotels would have such a dump as this.
So sad! This hotel could be a good value (due to it's location in Dumas) but the only positive is the sheets were clean. We booked late due to a long drive from Colorado, arrived exhausted and were greeted by: "Are you sure you have a reservation?" Then, we got to the room and our blanket had cigarette holes! We called for a change and finally got (seemed clean) a bedspread in exchange? The breakfast was soooo bad with the worse thing being the coffee. We're really not "gourmet" but at the minimum, we want good coffee. I'll be writing to CHOICE HOTELS since this hotel is not "choice."
We literally walked up to our room and then quickly walked back out and demanded our money back. Absolutely disgusting. I cannot believe that Choice Hotels would put their name on this property. Beds were saggy and OLD. The comforters were torn and dirty. The lamp had been pulled out of the walk and was hanging from a cord leaving a huge hole in the wall. The mirror had been repaired with duct tape. There was mold all inside the window. this is the first time I have ever been so repulsed by a room that I had to leave. I wouldn't stay there if they paid me!!!
Ok..I stayed 1 night paid $63.27 total....Semi truck parking in back of hotel.Good night lighting..Small breakfast that could be better..Room was clean with flat screen tv..Kingroom with microwave and refrigerator...Small vanity area.Ice machine worked..Laundryroom was available condition unknown...Really the cost of room should have been $53.00 total in my opinion.
The hotel is taking advantage of the oilfield boom by increasing rates, as has every other hotel in the area. This is at the expense of regular travelers though. The rate should not have been over $50, in my opinion, based on services offered and room quality. On the plus side, the room was generally clean, especially the bathroom. The TV had numerous channels. On the negative side, the bedding was old. There was peeling paint in the shower. The Internet service did not work. The interior hallway was very dark as the lighting was very dim. There was no room for toiletries and supplies around the tiny sink. The A/C was louder than usual. The staff was barely responsive upon arrival and departure. The clerk on duty at arrival was smoking right outside the front door when I checked in, negating the non-smoking hotel policy if a guest has to walk through smoke to go inside. The lights weren't on in the lobby when I arrived at 8pm. The lobby could stand a makeover as it was dingy and cluttered with poor signage. I was told the hallway to the rooms was "over there." I nearly walked into the laundry room as it was illuminated while the dark hallway wasn't. The clerk left for dinner as I was unloading my car, and a new clerk was inside, with the lights on, but didn't respond to my greeting when I walked inside. The same clerk who was smoking when I arrived was on duty the next morning when I checked out. She didn't say anything to me as I stood at the counter waiting to check out. I finally just laid my key card on the counter and walked to the breakfast area. While filling my water bottle from the sink, I heard her say, "Thank you." She didn't say anything else until I made a point of saying "Bye" and "Have a great day" as I walked out the door. I travel to Colorado from Dallas several times per year, and I will probably not choose EconoLodge in Dumas again.
We had been driving for almost 6 hours and decided for a 1am stop in Dumas. Another hotel across the road had gotten good reviews so tried there first but all booked up (most rooms in this town are due to the oilfield work staying in town). Hotel was nothing fancy but was clean as was the bathroom. I didn't go to the lobby for the breakfast but my husband loaded up on bagels and toast for the road. There is a walmart down the road if you need anything.
