“My stay at the Econo Lodge”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

I was greeted very warmly and was offered a great, low rate. The motel is very clean and inviting with a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning which includes yummy hot waffles. There are hair dryers and ironing boards in the rooms, laundry facilities and even a hot tub on the premises. The rooms are quiet and I slept very well on their comfortable bed. All the staff was very kind and accomodating. I will stay here again!!

Room Tip: There are two doors in the rooms which are very convenient for parking and then you have access insi...

I enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly and the coffee was good,. Had fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Good breakfast. Beds not bad. I have paid an average of $20 more at most the other hotels in Mt. for a lot less. I mean even Super 8 in this area are in the $80+, now that's ridiculous! Nice place for the price. I will stay again and i will join there Choice Hotels program. I paid $78 for the night.

Room Tip: there is no elevator to the second floor if your handicapped you will need a room on the ground flo...

We had to make an unscheduled stop in Billings Montana and needed a hotel. We stopped at this Econo Lodge and were pleasantly surprised at the service, cleanliness and ease of registering and checking out. It was a pleasant experience.

Good quality stay for the price paid. We have stayed there also in the last 60 days and we returned to stay in the same place. Good location with reasonable accomadations. We just used the room, computer in lobby to get email, to do some laundry and a convieniant breakfast.
.Would and will stay there again sometime.

We made a last minute reservation with this Econo Lodge due to bad weather and the need to take another route. The staff was very accomodating. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a nice breakfast and checkout was easy and fast.

After having stayed in 3 other motels in Billings with very poor results, ie bedbugs, 10 cable channels and smelly rooms, we chose Econo Lodge in Billings on our last nights stay. The room was comfortable and clean, the employees were very accomodating, and the continental breakfast was enjoyable.

Other motels in Billings should be looking to you for an example!

Room Tip: The room we had next to the pool was very quiet! Of course it was in November!

We'd stayed in Yellowstone too late and were hoping to stop in Red Lodge but by the time we got there there wasn't a single room in town.

After driving to Billings, we'd aimed for the cheaper Motel 6 but for some reason they were full as were many others in the area.

We rolled up to the Econo Lodge and ended up handing over far more than I would have expected for the room. They would negotiate as there was a queue of people who were in a similar situation of having toured looking for a place.

So annoyingly, we paid over $90 for a very basic room which we only got into at near 11pm.

The one upside was breakfast which had fresh waffles and other carb packed delight. Not a place I would ever return to though.
