6/10 Good

Upon first seeing the property I was very concerned about my choice. The outside of the building looks very sketchy and poor. After seeing the lobby was in decent shape and the guy behind the desk was great I felt a little better. Once I found my room was on an inside corridor behind locked doors and getting to my room and finding it in good shape I felt ok with my choice. It's not the nicest motel but my room was clean the bed made with clean sheets and was very comfortable. No problem with hot water as others have said at all. Looks like they are trying to update the place but it's going slowly.

The room was clean but the air conditioner was not working and on a day that was 89 degrees out it would have been nice to have it working. The outside appearance was not to pleasing, but the room was good.

2/10 Poor

Pictures are deceiving. We stayed at this econolodge for one night while working in Mason City. If it had been more than one night, we would’ve stayed somewhere else. Walking up the stairs to my room, there were men’s underwear sitting under stair tread. Getting up to my room, the door didn’t seem to seal all the way. My co worker found a pack of kwik trip chicken in his fridge from previous guest. My room was on second floor closer to the street and due to the bad seal on my door, every time a car went by, it sounded like it was inside of my room. The morning we checked out, the guy at the desk told us he was getting breakfast ready, “but we probably prefer the food at Hardy’s”. Overall it was a terrible experience. Definitely one of the worst places I’ve stayed at.

No hot water. Refrigerator not cold. Non-smoking facility wreaks of smoke in halls.
