Econo Lodge Watertown

Recent guest reviews

There is no sign for the rooms in the 100 to 200 series. I have to ask other truck driver who was happened to be there. I pick this motel is just because it is close to the highway.

It was a nice place for the price. Rooms, pool and TV and internet need upgrades. Easy to get to and convenient to places around the area.

Everything was great about Econo Lodge and also it was on main road near the highway.

Not fancy by any means but it was clean, was in a great location, had a friendly staff and felt safe. I didn't want to spend a lot on the hotel so this was perfect for me.

Staff cheerful and helpful. Great value for your money

The hotel generally met our expectations given the low price. Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This place is affiliated with Econo Lodge but there is nothing on the Econo Lodge Sign saying to check in at Econo Lodge. This is a major problem since you can't see the motel from the road. Took 20 min to find it. Hall was dark and dingy. Smell of smoke very strong. Just creepy.

enjoyed the location...the pool and we cooked out on the bbq grills provided!!

The comforter was stained beyond belief, the A/C on full blast and even low only blew cold air about 2 feet so it never reach the bed the alarm clock didn't work, the tv had about 8 channels. The coffee pot had mold in it so that wasn't touched. there was also a door that was locked in the room but i didnt dare open it thinking it possible went to the room next to us. The only positive is that its far away from the road so there was no road noise.

Very good value for the money. Stayed in area for four days three nights. Here for a family visit with son and his family. Staff were all very friendly and helpful to our requests. The Internet was very slow. TV is very limited for stations. I still would recommend this hotel for just a place to rest at night.

Go to spot for days away.. Reasonably priced and met expectations .. As always

Have stayed a few times. Have never had any issues

You can't expect much for the price of the room. The main thing I didn't like was that the hallway stunk like cigarette smoke.

Overall the stay was good but the heat was not on when we got to the room but was quickly fixed (breaker had tripped), room was clean and plenty of space with an efficiency kitchen with pots, pans and everything else to cook a meal. Everything was older but not a big deal for me at all.

A no frills room, dated but all you basicly need. Older building, but clean. Very near all Watertown shopping and restaurants. Enjoy the free basic breakfast across the parking lot at the Econo Lodge motel, run jointly by one office

GOOD LOCATION FOR WHAT WE NEEDED. LOTS OF DINING PLACES. LOTS OF SHOPPING PLACES. AND THE PRICE WAS REASONGABLE

Motel was nice without any problems. Location was great for most stores we wanted.

We stayed in this hotel for a night ....The room was ok. Don;t expect much in the room .but its worth the price clean and comfortable.but the worst part was the breakfast ...there was hardly anything worth eating so we preferred to have it in dunkin donuts.everything else was good .

Best value hotel when traveling with pets in Watertown. Not all rooms have kitchenettes, and those that do have them are not furnished with kitchenware. You must ask for it in advance, or you'll be waiting until next day to get it. Continental breakfast could use more variety, but is expected to be not that great when you're staying in the lowest price hotel in town.

Smells of smoke. We checked for bed bugs but there were NONE. Not a place for the family or for a romantic getaway. But it is definitely NOT expensive.
