Econo Lodge Gallup

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Although this motel looks a bit rough on the exterior, our newly renovated room was clean and pleasant. The white bathroom was pristine and the bed very comfortable. Our breakfast was a bit skimpy but waffles were available and muffins, toast, and a couple dry cereals, along with juices and fresh apples. All in all, it was a great sleep for the money!

For years Econo-Lodge has been my stopover point when traveling from southern California to Colorado. Why, you ask? Well, one reason of course is the price. With a AAA discount, my wife and I paid $45.99 for a room – with tax the total came to $52.11. Another reason is that the rooms are reasonably secure. Unlike most motels, where room access is directly from the outside, any intruder would have to pass by the front desk to get to you. The back doors are only opened with a room key. The added security gives extra piece of mind. Oh – when I told the manager that because of my hip surgery I cannot negotiate stairs very well, let alone lug suitcases up them, he upgraded my room at no additional charge. That’s very nice. They do provide a continental breakfast beginning at 6:00 a.m. if you need some carbs to get you started in the morning. So, it’s a reasonable place to stop off for a night, or longer if you want to catch the local sights and events. BTW, you may get a better room rate is you call them direct instead of going through Expedia, Trivago, etc.

We arrived very late at night and were very tired. The desk clerk was pleasant and very quick in checking us in. Even though it was late (midnight) there were doors slamming and it was hard to sleep as walls and doors seemed very thin. I will say the bed was comfortable and pets are allowed for $10. The waffles in the morning were very good and the morning desk clerk also very nice.

It is slightly more expensive and slightly nicer than the other roadside accommodations. It seems like they are remodeling, but my room was fine. They offer an acceptable free breakfast with waffles & toast etc. Yogurt would have been nice.

Very clean and comfortable room. The manager, Earnest, was helpful by introducing us to the hotel facilities and with the restaurants we liked in the Gallup, New Mexico area. The breakfast was very good as was our checkout. It was a very pleasant stay.

Very nice and clean rooms had a microwave and a refrigerator also dressers and closet with full length mirror and nice size bathroom and a flat-screen TV and the lighting was great very quiet and comfortable rooms the staff who was the new manager Ernest was very helpful and friendly and went far and above your average manager at a motel

My booking strategy is, when not staying some place for any reason other than a stopping place on the road, find the cheapest place with at least a 3.5 rating. Came back to bite me this time. Two pluses: the price, and the surprising DirectTV subscription. The minuses: even though the room was non-smoking it smelled like smoke; I had to attach the DirectTV to the TV myself; the breakfast was so gnarly-looking I wouldn't let my family eat it; and when we lost an item and called for it they very clearly couldn't be bothered to look for it. But, like, no bedbugs, so.

Stopped here on our way from 4 corners to Flagstaff. room was clean but was little more to us than a place to sleep. No restaurants nearby that we would have cared to eat at so we had to go back an exit to eat. Price was reasonable and it seemed clean.

We were on our way to Phoenix, we just needed a place to rest for the night. Very nice desk clerk to welcome us. I always find that a nice person behind the counter is reassuring to a road weary traveler. Just a plain old continental breakfast but it was fine.

I don't rate my stays at a hotel based on the hotel's ratings. Obviously one can expect a 5 star hotel to be superior to a 1 star. So I factor this in when giving my personal review and rating. Even knowing this was not a high end hotel and only being there for one night, I still nonetheless would give this at best a one star rating. The room and bathroom are small, far less than average bedding and their towels are at the lowest level. The continental breakfast was almost a joke. So why the extra star? Believe it or not, they have DirecTV, so there was plenty from which to choose when calling it a night and watching TV before going to sleep.
