Wasn't sure about staying at an Econo Lodge but after reading reviews and seeing the price, thought we'd give it a try. My husband raised his eyebrows when I told him we were trying an Econo Lodge. Nothing wrong with this place! Felt a bit like staying at Gramma's :) Not like the more modern look a lot of hotels...

I usually wouldn't stay in an Econolodge, but this one was rated so good...and it was actually a nicer place than most upper end hotels. It was the cleanest hotel I have been in. The rooms have high ceilings because it is all on one floor. Really really clean. Nice furnishings and marble vanity. Simple breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights. It was super clean. The room had a microwave and small frig which was useful. There was a simple breakfast each morning in the common area. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here next time I am in Eau Claire.

I chose this motel for its price and its location to my client. It served my purpose just fine. It is an economy hotel, but clean, has all the necessities, comfortable bed, micro-wave, refrigerator, and great parking. Breakfast was adequate and as expected. Staff was friendly and helpful. A ton of restaurants within a mile, and a good sized mall...

This was a one night stay. The room was clean and comfortable. It is not fancy but when you looking for a nice place to stay on a budget it fits the bill. The breakfast was pedestrian but nice. The staff is friendly too.

Very reasonably priced. Rooms clean and comfortable .not a lot of extras, breakfast usual fair. Room was very quiet. Even without the extras would definitely stay again, the price ,quiet and comfort makes it well worth while.

Found online with good reviews. Smaller one story hotel located close to freeway, Red Robin and fast food across the street. Walmart, Sams Club, and Mall about a mile away. Grounds, lobby, and room were very clean and quiet. Breakfast was perfect for us, but if you are looking for eggs and bacon, they don't have that. You get fruit...

For a guy on a business trip it worked. Would stay again alone; would not stay here with my wife. Bathroom counter too small, towels were damp when I used them first day. Wasn't too occupied, but still noisy, so I imagine quite noisy when more full. People were nice.

Reviewed 6 October 2016 via mobile

Located close to major highways, but very quiet at night. Queen size bed, desk, chair, TV, coffee pot, small refrigerator. Nicely furnished with nice size bathroom. Has excellent breakfast choices in am. Yogurt, boiled eggs, cereals, pancakes, muffins, juices and coffee. Courteous, helpful employees. Economical prices.
