InexpensivePosted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: newer carpet?
Cons: The mold growing in the bathroom
Location: We didn't really have time to explore the town. Arrived late, left early
We stayed 1 night because we couldn't find a hotel in the city we were headed to.

Worse Econo LodgePosted Jan 12, 2015 on Hotels
Won't be staying back here, feel like me and my Co-Worker deserved a refund. We stayed because it was advertised to have a pool/spa. When we got there, we had come to find out it was down for two years. The beds were comparable to sleeping on a wood table and there was still a bar of soap in my shower from a previous guest. The only good thing about this hotel was the staff. They were fun and I enjoyed conversating with them each morning.

Econo Lodge Le MarsPosted Jan 6, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: Finish remodeling the indoor pool area.
Location: Ice cream manufacturing is what the town is know for.
We had a small dog with us. It was no problem with having him in the room. The staff was friendly to my family including the dog. The room was clean. The complementary breakfast was the best we had on our road trip at three differnet hotels/motels. The only grip I had was the indoor pool area was going through remodeling and was inaccessible.

False AdvertisementPosted Oct 9, 2014
Cons: The bathroom grout was disgustingly dirty. take the indoor heated pool off your advertising, change the sausage gravy used it tastes spoiled.
Location: Walmart and a shopping plaza with a few stores is right behind. Lots of food choices close by.
When we did our search it was for a hotel with an indoor pool, Wi-Fi, and free breakfast. We wanted to stay in the town where our kids live but decided on LeMars as it was not that far away and it had everything we were looking for at a better rate. We knew it was not the Holiday Inn but we expected it to have what was advertised, what drew us there in the first place. We got to the hotel after 2pm(check in according to the website) and the rooms were not ready. We went to the store and came back. We checked in, our kids came and we got ready to swim went to the lobby and they said the pool was down pipes broke and it had to be drained. When we asked how long it had been down we were told over a year and it was going to be reconstructed into a lounge area. We were very disappointed as swimming was our plan for the afternoon.

Will stay again next year!Posted Aug 30, 2014 on Hotels
We enjoyed our stay at Econo Lodge. Had to go down 5 steps to our level 1, but manageable. People were very nice. Breakfast was great! Pool was closed, but we were too busy to use it anyway. (for construction). Room was clean and comfortable.

not cleanPosted Oct 1, 2013 on Hotels
I'm not a very picky person but I thought this hotel was very dirty. Our room smelled horrible, we had stains on our furniture in our room and the bed felt very worn and used. We also used the pool which we discovered the water was very salty which I've never discovered before. The door in the back of the hotel was wrapped up with duck tape and the security card reader wasnt needed so anybody could walk in. The hallways smelled bad also. I just felt dirty there!

Clean and AffordablePosted Jul 30, 2013 on Hotels
It's not fancy,but it's about half the price of the nearby Holiday Inn. The room was clean, well maintained, and affordable. I would stay there again.
