"Vacation stay at Econo Lodge"
For the most part my stay was alright. I did run into some issues with my door keys not working and the toilet made a really annoying noise whenever it flushed. Also the shower sometimes made the noise but it did go away. Also the lid to the toilet seat came off a few times. But other than that for the price of the room for how long I stayed I can't […] complain much. The staff was very friendly too. If I came back to the area I would most likely come back to the hotel if the prices were the same. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hair in tub. No coffee pot in room, others had one. No decaf coffee.we were told it was on grocery list. Check out lady had a lot of trouble checking us in & out. Didn't seem like she knows what she was doing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stephens Point Fall Vacation"
Was conveniently located and priced right. Room and hotel were fairly clean but getting old. Breakfast was very basic and ended too early. I was on vacation and breakfast before 9 wasn't desirable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I love the closeness to the highway and was so nice and quiet. The entrance was pretty dirty looking by door 2 and there was a huge stain on the chair that looked like it had been there for awhile. Otherwise super!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mattresses are beyond horrible."
I booked a $50 room and was expecting a dated hotel. The room was not the worst I've stayed in as far as cleanliness goes, but it could have definitely used some additional attention. My problem was the BEDS!!! I cannot even begin to imagine how old those mattresses are!! When I checked out the next morning the girl at the desk asked how my stay was. […] I told her she should be ashamed to rent out rooms with those mattresses. Apparently the hotel is under new ownership (6 months I believe she said). And they do have some new mattresses on order. I told her that didn't matter to me - I had to pay to for what I slept on. She was trying to be nice as she offered me her excuses. I was not interested in the excuses then she tried to shift the blame to me - "Did you call down to the front desk and ask for a different room - we would have moved you". Now I'm getting mad that this is my fault and I told her no. I couldn't imagine that if they had any better beds available that they would have rent out the bad ones first - I just figured they all were bad. Apparently if I would have complained, they know that some of the KING beds are better and they would have been happy to move us. **THIS HOTEL IS NOT A HORRIBLE PLACE TO STAY - JUST MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR A ROOM WITH A NEW MATTRESS (whenever they come in) or before you unpack anything....check the mattress....if it is bad call down to the desk and ask to be moved.

"Takes pets but at a HIDDEN COST."
The hotel was easy to find and right on the highway we came in to town on. It is a little run down gut for a few nights it is a good value.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Night Stay"
Great location, clean room, loved the location of pool. Breakfast was lacking, but overall a nice place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No attention to detail. beds were hard. No soap! TV had black lines running thru it when it warmed up! Hotel clerk said they are doing a complete remodel in a month! Needs to be updated ASAP!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to highway"
Toilet ran all the time, no screen on the window, they supplied 2 shower towels for three people, and one small bar of soap and one small bottle of shampoo during the entire four night stay, and the hallways were very darkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was on good shape. The entrance to the Hotel should have better signs showing how to get there from the access road , it seemed strange to me. The staff was professional and the room was fine. The continental breakfast was "self service" completely. No staff checked on us. By the way, there was an old style Television in the room, […] I haven't seen one in a hotel in a long time. They should upgrade it. For the room rate , it was worth it, I just wanted some place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Budget hotel or not, would not use again"
The first room I was assigned, the cable was out, and the phone was acting up. The front desk reassigned me immediately. The second room I was assigned was not very clean. The beds had quilts which were rumpled, the navy blue carpet had crumbs on it, the coffee maker had coffee splatters on it, and there was hair in the bathtub. Unfortunately I was […] not able to find another hotel due to graduation ceremonies in the area, so, instead off to target I went for Clorox wipes and a blanket of my own.

"Nice hotel, not far from the University"
Breakfast was good with waffles, fruit and wide assortment of breads with constant replenishment. Didn't swim, but pool looked clean and hot tub was functioning. Room was a good size, comfortable and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice Stay"
I was pleased with the accommodations and it was reasonably priced. The television could use updating, however adequate. The complimentary breakfast was very good with a wide variety of items. The spacious pool, hot tub, and sauna looked very inviting. Unfortunately, I forgot my swimsuit. The pool area included an air hockey, foosball, and pool table […] and other things for the kids. There are many poolside rooms including ones on the floor above overlooking the pool. There is a big fireplace with an area to sit and relax in the lobby. Although I didn't make use of it, there also is a restaurant attached. As I checked out, the management was concerned if I enjoyed my stay or had any suggestions for improvement. If I return to the area, I will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Value for Price - ok"
Good value for the price. We were planning to relax, visiting college student, wasn't possible due to graduation party in the pool area. Kids and Adults both were very loud in the halls; Slamming doors and kids running in the halls. Were not able to sit in the hot tub or use pool area until the next morning. Kids running around the pool (parents watch...). […] Ignored signs of "No Running". I would stay again. However instead of being nice I would complain. Management was nice.

"housekeeper did not knock!"
Housekeeper came into our room at 830 in the morning without knocking we were still in bed, and when I mentioned this to the front desk they were rude and blamed us for not putting chain on door. I then asked to have a late check out ( 12 instead of 11) and they told me no they needed all the rooms cleaned for incoming guests We were the only ones there […] !!!! The only positive thing I can say about this experience was the price of the room . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff Great! Hotel needs servicing"
The hotel is dated and needs some maintenance, but what was there was clean, working and the staff was friendly and helpful. For the price and reason, satisfactory.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean rooms and friendly staff"
We were pleasantly surprised! This hotel was very clean and fresh for it's age. The staff was extremely accomodating and pleasant to deal with. We also enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning. Our only concern was the step off into the pool area. It is very easy to miss the step down as it blends together when approaching the edge. There needs […] to be a yellow caution tape or strip lights to mark the edge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very pleasantly surprised"
We stayed here for the anniversary party at Central Waters Brewery. The staff was extremely supportive, knowledgeable and fun. The lobby and public areas were clean and welcoming. The pool area was really special (indoors!) and included a number of old classic video games. Room was standard issue, but clean and well-maintained. We will definitely stay […] here in the future. Oh, we were mainly surprised because the room rate was so reasonable. Good old Wisconsin :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Stay away from this econo lodge in Merril Wisconsin"
01/10/15 Franklin C California
No freaking stars if I could. Let me tell you why: 1. The pictures on the website that you see on Yelp or The Hotel's website are all LIES!!!! 2. The truth is this place should have been closed by the Wisconsin Health Department years ago. It is owned by a guy from India who thinks that we are in India here in the USA. 3. Toilet had pee and feces (seriously!). It was never cleaned. 4. Pillows smelled like pure sweat. 5. The pool and jacuzzi had organisms (mold and algae?) growing in it. 6. Should I say more? 7. EconoLodge should pull this person's right to use their brand. Their brand is being seriously smeared by these type of owners/licensees... Remember, if it is too cheap, it is too cheap for a reason! I took off and went directly to the Ameri Inn. Way much better!!!

I booked a suite for 3 nights for myself, my sister, and my cousin to play Trivia ( our town hosts the world's largest trivia contest every year). Check-in was supposed to be at 2pm and we weren't able to check in until 5pm. When we did get to the room it was still dirty, so we had to wait another hour for the room to be cleaned. We noticed quickly that there was water dripping from the light fixture in the bathroom. We called down to the front desk and they sent someone with at towel to wipe up the bathroom floor and the housekeeper said "you couldn't mop this up yourself?" That next morning when using the toilet the fixture was pouring water now instead of dripping and I had a gross moldy shower when it gave way a bit and dumped all the water that pooled up in the fixture. I called the front desk again and they said it would be a couple hours but they would move us across the room to the other suite like ours. We had called about 7am and we were moved to the other room across the hall around 3pm. No apologies no discount on the room for the hassle. When asked if they would take a bit off the price for all the trouble they said "we switched your room without complaining isn't that enough?" That was the big problem. That's not including all the mold we found, or having to go to the basement to use the bathroom since the ones on our floor were out of order as well as the one in our room. Will never come here again. It's a huge health hazard.
"What a wonderful place"
I've stayed at the hotel for 4 months off and on for work purposes and there's no place I'd rather went to than besides here. My rooms always clean when I return the staff is really friendly, especially Heather, She always has a smile on her face. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Front desk attendant was very courteous and helpful. Would recommend This hotel to others. The price is outstanding for the amenitys offered. Is an excellent choice for family's, as well as gatherings with its large and very clean pool area. The pool side rooms are a very nice feature as well!
"Not good at all"
11/23/14 Reggie G Waukesha, Wisconsin
The shower had mold growing in the tile grout. That does not happen if regular cleaning is taking place. Disgusting. The decor may not have been updated since the 1970s(who cares), but what is really important to note is that cleaning and repairs also appear not to have taken place since the 1970s. The toilet made crazy screeching noises whenever I flushed it. The common areas were not clean. There was dust and dirt along the edges of the carpet and in the corners. It smelled like stale smoke, clearly the carpets have not been shampooed since the smoking ban. The air in my room was unbearably hot and dry. The coffee looked extremely weak when I tried to get some from the free breakfast, which was all together sad. I took one bite of a cold, stale mini-muffin, and by that time was already sufficiently skeeved out by the hotel, so I ended up throwing it and the coffee out. The other options were frosted flakes or froot loops, stale looking white bread, and waffle batter that came out of a dispenser to make your own waffles. I would not eat anything from a dispenser at a place that doesn't clean. Not even pieces of fruit, or bagels. The other reviews painted it as having nothing wrong with it other than having 70s decor, so I didn't mind saving here to save a few bucks. Horrible decision. On top of it all, I came away with bed bug bites. Don't stay at this hotel. Pay a few dollars more for a slightly better hotel, it will be worth it.
"Not bad I guess"
09/03/14 peter4718 Dekalb, IL
Luckily this place is getting renovated soon. It's a good location with a lot of potential. It definitely needs updating though. The pool is pretty cool. The continental breakfast should have fruit. No fridge or microwave in my room was a bummer too. Not too sure this will change with the renovations so I would go back and see just because it has great potential.
"Friendly and Helpful Staff and Close to Bike Trails"
08/24/14 Als K Indianapolis, Indiana
I booked this at the last second when I heard of a local cycling event. The other hotels were full and I thought we were "stuck" with this and would have to put up with it, but we were nicely surprised! The room was clean and beds were comfortable after long hilly rides. (I thought maybe a rock would be too, but no...I tried) Internet got a little sparse and they were fixing it right away. Don't let the outside discourage you, they have good rooms on the inside. Better yet, it's being completely renovated and upgrading. Met the owner and he's the hardest working hotelier we've ever encountered. Manager David was great and helped us with our things. Couldn't have asked for better at that price!
"Good value, great service!"
08/09/14 TeresaWyckoff New York City, New York
We stayed here for two nights during our US tour, for our comedy show. It was a great value. However, the shining star was the front desk attendant who went the extra mile to make sure we had a room with a microwave & fridge, even though we forgot to request it when we first booked the room. It was a comfortable "home like" room with a view of a park/forest instead of just a freeway. There are some great walking trails and a swimming lake within walking distance. We will make sure we stay here the next time we come through Stevens Point.
"Great value, good for families"
08/04/14 Thomas S Saint Paul, Minnesota
My son and I stayed here and found our room to be clean and quiet. The pool was pleasant and the staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was a little lackluster, but the overall value is excellent. We didn't encounter any of the problems that previous guests complained about.
"New management. Needs work. staff, especially Emily, friendly and helpful"
Rough at best. No fitness room, fridge or coffee in room. Beds were pretty awful. Said 1month under new management. Staff good. Garbage left overnight. Good Location though. Would not stay next time................
