“Very Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2006

My sister and husband had driven in from Chgo. We live in northeast Texas. I could not find a hotel or casino with any openings. We were planning to stay one night, to go to Barksdale and see a few sights, like the beautiful river walk, and casino's. The only opening was the Econo Lodge. I was hesitant, however we were very pleasently surprised.
The motel was easy to get to off of I20. The check in was very professionally done in a very large lobby. Staff was great and helpful. Breakfast was very good and well maintained, with waffles and susage, and alot more. The room was very clean, with hair dryer and coffee pot, tables and chairs. (first thing I check it the bathroom corners, and they were clean)
The pool was well maintained and had a childrens pool and a hot tub.
We liked this motel so well we even stayed another night. I would highly recommend Econo Lodge

Stayed one night (8/26) at the Econo Lodge in Bossier City off of I-20. Went with my sister for a quick getaway for some play at the casinos. The motel is just off the highway but a little tricky to get to the entrance (exit to the service road, bear right at a light onto a little two way street and then take an immediate left yielding to oncoming traffic). Check in was fine, very friendly staff and we got a lower level room (no stairs!)

The room was a two queen no smoking and very clean. Looks like it had been remodeled recently. It's a real basic room, beds, two chairs, tv and small dresser, sink w/ vainity, hanging area for clothes and tiny bathroom. In fact the ceiling of the bathroom was at least a foot lower than the rest of the room, a very tall person might be uncomfortable. The tub had a real shower curtain and old shower head. Low water pressure out of the shower and really hot water! The bed was a little on the hard side, but since I was only there for one night I was ok with it.

The lobby was pretty nice for a cheapie hotel, newish furniture and carpeting. The hotel did offer a continental breakfast, with the usual fare of coffee, juice, danishes, muffins, cereal, you make waffles, and sausage patties. We only ate some fruit and muffins, had to get back out to the casinos before we drove back home. The hotel did offer a shuttle to take you to and from either the Horseshoe Casino or Harrah's over at Louisana Downs racetrack.

Over all, this was a nice little cheap hotel, very clean and friendly staff. For one or two nights, you can't go wrong. I got a good deal on the price through a club discount I have as this hotel is part of the Choice hotels.
