I stayed one night and paid $63.20 in room-108..Next to laundryroom and ice machine.This is a 2 story complex.I didn't hear anyone upstairs..My room was big with Kingbed with lots of pillows..Carpet was in good shape..The room had a microwave and refrigerator that didn't freeze anything.Flat screen TV..WI-FI available..Parking outside your door..Only a few semi truck parking spaces near the highway.Location good but alot of road construction in front of hotel..Fast food close by..The breakfast is not big enough it needs more items..This place is run by Indians..I would advise checking your room first before paying any money..There are alot of other hotels near by to pick from.
We stay at this motel frequently when in Temple. Clean rooms, right off I-35. Inexpensive. Family owned and ran. Friendly staff. Wi-fi isn't very fast but will work to get business done. Not far for fast food or nice restaurants. Temple is a major city for medical treatment. This hotel is not within walking distance but works well to get to any of the major hospitals and clinics.
Our family of 3 adults stayed here twice in the past month because the price suited our pocketbook. The beds were very comfy, the room was tidy, the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was waffles, cereal, pastries, orange juice, and bananas.
The Hotel is comfortable. Air-conditioner not too noisy. Mostly well-maintained. However some cleanliness details in the room could've been addressed such as stains on the walls and dirt on the refrigerator. The full-size refrigerator was a plus. Included are: continental breakfast, mostly carbs., (cereal waffles juice muffins and bananas and apples), TV, King size bed, couch, desk and chair, clock, free local calls, coffee pot and plenty of soft towels. The suite room is slightly more expensive than the regular rate. However we believe it's well worth the extra.
When i checked in, there is a funny smell in the room. Then i went to my bed and saw a cockroach on my pillow. There are also cockroach droppings on the bedsheet. There is also another cockroach on the floor near the vanity area. The bath tub has a hollow which used temporary repair. Think twice b4 booking it here. Worst hotel ever stayed in US.
Stayed here at the last minute. We hit flash flooding at 1:30 a.m. and needed to stop. Thankful they gave us last room between Waco and Austin. . Older room. Decor is dated. Sheets were clean. Older tv but room had full fridge. Arrived at breakfast 10 minutes before close. Breakfast host was irritated and announced to all that breakfast was ending. Wasn't willing to refill orange juice after it was gone. Not the best service but better than nothing.
I was really glad to find a room at the location for such a fair price so late into the evening on my way back to DFW last night. The clerk smiled and greeted me even though I was tired and grumpy after a long day of sunning and swimming on Lake Travis. The room was a nice find for the price and even had free coffee/continental breakfast. Unlike the ghetto motel 6s on both sides of the highway that were either booked or didn't have a working credit card machine, oh and the customer service sucked. Thanks Econolodge!!! You are on my list next time I need to stay in Temple.
I spent one night here. The place is older, has had only minimal upkeep, is obviously being milked of its last value. The room was okay,but management isn't up to snuff. The lobby was locked in the morning even after the announced breakfast hour. Twenty minutes later,still no coffee. The orange juice was spoiled and sour, but the front desk guy didn't seem to care. Minimal breakfast otherwise. It was cheaper than others, but for an extra $10 I wish I'd gone elsewhere.
My son and I stayed here for a race in the area. There are lots of hotel choices but this one offered the best rates. Although it's obviously an older hotel, it is very clean and it has been fairly recently renovated. The check in was easy, the staff was helpful, the room was clean and quiet and the bed was comfy. We didn't eat breakfast on site but everything else was good. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Little older hotel that ended up being a decent place to stay. I think it's a work in progress that looks like the management is doing the work. They really need professional help to speed things up. It may take them forever to update their property. Lot of highway construction in the area and a lot of construction workers staying here. The parking lot was jammed with work trucks. They all must have been dead tired because I never heard a peep after quiet time. The only real complaint I have is with the shape of my room's bathroom and sink facilities. They weren't dirty, but looked very dingy. My tub had a yellowish "ring-around-the-tub" stain on it. I suggested the management use stronger or professional cleaners such as Tilex brand cleaners or something similar. Hope they don't just wipe down the fixtures when they "house keep". To Econo Lodge's credit, I turned in a survey and they said they would get on it. I later received an e-mail from the site manager that they were fixing the problem. If you just need a place to overnight, this place will do fine... especially for the price.
