I have stayed here several times and been treated with the utmost kindness and courtesy each time. Everyone there is very welcoming and accommodating. Ashley has always been above and beyond helpful, as has Jenny, Nils and the rest of the staff. The room is very nice, the breakfast is great and having the convenience of a shuttle is a...

I wouldn't usually stay in an Econo Lodge, but after reading the rave reviews on this site, I figured I'd stay here on my way out west for a night. Granted, it was only for a night, but still it was a pleasant experience. Rooms were clean, relatively quiet, and spacious, with a comfortable bed. I did not participate in...

Dear Mattrgti, I am so glad you decided to give our Lodge a try on your way out west! Our goal is to exceed guest expectations by going above and beyond what the average EconoLodge has to offer. This past year we completely re-vamped our breakfast to include items that most mid-scale properties offer (such as Hampton, Holiday Inn Express,...

We chose this hotel because it was close to where we were going and it was affordable. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect because I've never stayed at an EconoLodge before, but I was so happy that I made the decision to stay there! We arrived around 9:30pm, the receptionist was so kind and helpful! We got into our...

The staff was wonderful. The price was great for what you get-- room was roomy enough for 2 adults and 3 little ones, free breakfast, accommodating staff, and CLEAN! Less than 10 minutes away from Mayo with a shuttle service during the weekdays.

We normally stay away from Econo Lodge hotels, but took a chance because of the good reviews. WOW!! What a great surprise! While the hotel is not new and does not have a pool (we weren't planning on swimming anyway), it is very obvious they take great pride in what they do. The rooms are very clean, the bed was...

We recently stayed at the Econo Lodge, Rochester, MN while visiting family in the area. The staff was most welcoming and our room was beyond my expectations. It was extremely clean and comfortable.

Believe it was a first time stay at this motel. Usually in our travels throughout the country we avoid Econolodges. We have not had very good experiences. This one here is exceptionable. Maybe it's the only one in the country in the Econolodge chain that is neat. The owners are to be commended for making this motel what it is....
