Stopped in after a drive from Denver. The room was clean and people were friendly. Just seemed like a lt to pay for an average 2 star place. Average breakfast offerings but at least pet friendly. That helped.

These are basic accommodations convenient to I-70. Check in was friendly and efficient, but there’s no elevator to the second floor. Our reservation requests were noted, and the room was clean and quiet with a comfortable king bed. We were given a 10% discount card for dining at a steak house within walking distance.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience here on TA. I went through the whole review and I am still wondering if I have ever talk to any guest about missing out phone charger in the room. Also it look like you have some sort of misunderstanding because all of our lamps are equipped with outlets. So guest never...

We were looking for a cheap place to spend the night while we traveled I-70, and this place was a great deal. The room was simple but it was clean, which by itself is a good deal at this price. Elias at the front desk was very helpful. I had a moving truck with a car towed behind it, and...

We decided on the Econo Lodge, based on Trip Advisor reviews, location to Interstate and the price ($68). Check was efficient and we found our room. It was larger than expected for the price and had everything you need, including charger stations in the lamps. There was a small fridge and microwave, as well as a hair dryer in the...

It's an EconoLodge - what do you expect? Room was clean, towels were fluffy and fresh, and front desk staff was very kind. It's not a Hilton or Marriott, but if you just are looking for a place to spend the night in the way through Kansas, this will do. Conveniently located - lots eateries nearby. The breakfast looked modest...

The room itself was very nice. We stayed with a baby and were able to stay in an inside room. The furniture was beat up, but very clean. There was minimal parking at the entrance. The free breakfast was horrible. There were two kinds of cereal, English muffins, and eggs and sausage.

If you are looking for a good bed...clean room...nice shower, reasonably priced...this is a good value in Hays. Better than average Econlodge. We'll stay again when we require this kind of stay. We've stayed other lower priced places in Hays and been disappointed.

It was an okay place to stay. Along a busy strip of businesses with restaurants and other motel options along the road. The motel is surrounded by parking lots. Room was clean and the breakfast was well stocked. Okay place to stay, would consider them again.
