The Econo Lodge is a very nice place to stay The employees are very friendly and very accomodating. The room was nice and large and very quiet. I didn't hear any outside noise. They serve breakfast which was very pleasant. The only complaint I have is that this motel along with others beside it are off a main street and...

The room smelled like dirty feet. The carpet was pulled away from the bathroom door and had nails sticking out. Mold was in the toilet. The housecleaning crew beat on the door at 8:20 wanting the towels even though the Do Not Disturb sign was posted. No microwave or fridge. And, ants were on the desk. I will never stay...

My mom, my 1 year old and myself were passing through on a road trip 3 weeks ago and decided to stop here for the night based on other reviews. The lady at the front desk was VERY nice and helpful (I believe her name was Debby but I can't remember). She let us smell the room before moving our...

The room was not clean. I dropped something on the floor by the bed. When I lifted the bed skirt, I found paper wrappers and a black thing I didn't want to know what it was. The toilet bowl rim was black and the toilet bowl was very discolored. Most of the TV channels had no signal,whether it was digital...

The first room we checked into smelled horrible. I still can't figure out what it was. The staff was very helpful with getting us another room. It was better but had a moldy mildew smell. We are only staying a few hours so we will tough it out. The beds are comfortable. Another family member has a room across the...

The hotel was on the main road but still maintained a nice quiet atmosphere. The room was clean and everyday the staff came in a maintained the cleanliness. Breakfast was good and the assortment was nice. The desk staff were knowledgeable about the activities and attractions in Topeka. Couldn't ask for much more

I am going to check in to this hotel tomorrow for a softball. Today our plans changed just a bit and we decided to bring our young daughter with us. Originally I booked a king room thinking it would only be my husband and I so I was dreading making the call to the hotel to see if I could...

I was attracted by the rate, but the recent reviews were decent too, so I checked it out. The greeting was welcoming, the bed clean and comfortable. It is located close to the 470 bypass, but there was no noise problem. Besides it is close to the Mall and lots of other shopping and eating sites. I will stay there...

Nothing fancy, but clean, quiet, extremely friendly staff. Close to restaurants. Good breakfast. Pleasant, economic stop. There's not much to Topeka...this was a convenience stop for us. The staff, location, and price were just right.

The hotel has recently changed management and now offers excellent value for money. The room was big and clean as was the pool and spa facilities. The management and staff could not of been more helpful and even let us do some washing. We have travelled 16000 miles in 4months and this is by far one of the best hotels...
