Nice clean room and great breakfast. Friendly staff. Would stay again when in the area. Parking was was close to entrance. Motel in good location, close to every thing, including shopping. Stayed twice at this location and both times had no complaints.

After a very long drive from Montana I booked another stay whole on the road for another Econolodge motel here in South Dakota and wasn't disappointed. This is a very comfortable, clean and quite place. The front office area is under renovation but nevertheless the girl at the front was very pleasant and the room is very comfortable and very...

The hotel is conveniently located within the city of Watertown with restaurants and other shopping nearby. It is within one mile of the Terry Redlin Art Museum...a must see, which also has free admission, a gift of the Redlin family to the community. Our room was clean and well decorated with two queen beds. Heating and ventilation was quiet. Breakfast...

Got two queen beds and had a nice experience. The room is small with the two beds but it was a nice and pleasant stay. It's a nice hotel and cheaply priced. Also, pretty good location in Watertown. Close to some eateries and Hyvee.

We didn't expect much for the discounted rate we got but we're very surprised. Friendly check in, nice shower (pull hard to get the most pressure), clean and comfortable. Shower curtain did not try to attack us. Air conditioning worked well and was not too loud. No fridge or microwave, but not none was advertised at that rate. Excellent for...

Pros: Friendly management. Across the street from Hyvee. Cons: Not enough parking in lot. No microwave. Minimal breakfast. If you are going to supply flimsy towels at least provide 2 per person.Smoke from smokers in front goes right into lobby. More water comes out of spout than shower head.

Beds are comfortable. Place is dated but clean. Breakfast is sub-par for similar places...plain Cheerios and Raisin Bran, toast and English muffin no peanut butter, cheap danish, apples and hard boiled egg. Coffee was lukewarm and styrofoam cups with no tops. rooms are big with an actual recliner. Small TV.

Fast check in, room was clean, bed was very comfortable, room also had a fridge and facilities to make a hot drink, as my husband has a sweet tooth we find we have to always ask for more sugar.

Booking on Priceline, the "Name Your Own Price" was not available for the 2 1/2* hotels in Watertown. So, it suggested to try the 2* hotels, and I did. We ended up booking a 1- night stay at the Econo Lodge. We usually land a good deal at the Best Western Ramkota, but this 2* was about $20 less. I...
