Hotel was okay. For the money I spent it was okay. Especially since we didn't stay in our room except to sleep and shower. Fire alarm kept going off every time we showered. Soda and snack machines were empty. Breakfast was basic cereal and bagels.

The place was just OK, but the breakfast was the most meager I have come across. We didn't bother with it but went out for breakfast instead

The motel is nice. But the hallways are very smokey. The indoor pool is nice. The manager is great.

This is a no-frills economy motel, as you expect from Econo Lodge. I give it a rating of 5 because it delivered what you expect for the low price: a clean room, free internet, a friendly front desk person. It had a USB charge station next to the bed, which saved my phone (I forgot to bring my wall adapter). It's located with easy access to Hwy 80 and to downtown Princeton. It was quiet at night. Of course the room was small, the furniture slightly worn, etc., but the performance to price ratio was high.

Very good hotel clean and staff was nice and respectful

Clean and simple, basically what you would expect. The lobby had a really weird odor, but the room was fine.

I wasn't too bad I have been at worse ones. But everytime I turned around the older man that works the desk I don't no if he's the manager or what but he was always right there just stairing. It was weird

We certainly just expected basics from a 2 star hotel but when our TV (which was a very old model) was unplugged when we got there, that was strange. We discovered that you had to unplug it to turn it off and the remote only worked occassionally! That was really disappointing. Many of the outlets and lighting in the room did not work which made me fear that there was an electrical problem in the room. It didn't make for a very restful night. For about $15 more we could have stayed at a new AmericInn across the street!

We were traveling with our 7# toy poodle The room was neat and clean and smelled good. Was everything we needed - especiallty pet friendly. Would stay here again

Stay was fine. Spent two nights. Rested well. Breakfast not the greatest--options limited but sufficient.

This was an okay place to stay, very convenient off the highway. The room was clean and neat, the beds were okay for sleeping. Not a fancy place at all, but the people were nice. The worst part was that there were really no restaurants in business nearby so we didn't get a good meal.

I always stay here, when in town.

The Econo Lodge in Princeton was great. The furnishings were a little dated, but clean. The bed was comfortable. As with most motels, the rooms were a little on the noisy side from other guests and outside activities. Did not like the ice machine being directly outside my door, would suggest that be moved. All-in-all, the service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs.

Bargain hotel with minimum amenities.
