We stayed in the old style motel units (30 numbers) and had a great stay. Nice and clean rooms, well appointed with seperate kitchen.

Great location, close to supermarkets, lake and cafe's. The train ripping through at 6am is a good alarm clock. Our 2 nights at Econo were the best stay of our trip and was a blast from the past kiwiana style.

The rooms are spacious and clean. Toilets and shower stall are small. Just lots of small things wrong. Broken key, slow internet, a train line next door, stained carpet, a leaking tap and an extra unneeded bed crowding the living room (told left there as they were busy and didn't have time to move it)

Econolodge is an cheaper accommodation option in Whanganui. The units are clean, spacious and comfortable. A bonus is that there is free Wi-Fi, via a coupon available at the office. The kitchen comes with all facilities needed for cooking,. I appreciated that the rooms were serviced daily - very helpful and friendly staff. I've stayed there a few times now, and I will certainly continue to stay here when I'm in Whanganui.

Room tip: In cold weather, it's fine to leave the panel heater on all day, so that it's cozy at night.

We stayed here one night. The hotel is located on a quiet tree-lined street.

Check in was quick and easy but the person checking us in was not very friendly. I had to ask for the WiFi password, and she did not offer any other help with amenities or anything else.

The room was just basic, and the heating was not very good. Also, the internet speed was VERY slow. I was not able to upload photos to Facebook after trying for several hours.

I would not recommend this hotel, nor would I stay there again.
