Econo Lodge
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in Van Horn
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Plus: very comfortable bed, nice sized room, interior fresh with seemingly new carpet, paint, furniture. Room rate was very reasonable.
Micro, fridge, coffee maker.

Minus: air conditioner was the kind that cut on and off all night., outside of hotel was not kept up as nice as interior.
Continental breakfast was the most meager I've ever seen. Very few choices. In room coffee maker sputtered but eventually finished the cycle but the coffee smelled so bad I didn't even try it.

This town has many motels to choose from.

Stayed: June 2013

and good internet service. They've been re-doing the property and freshening it up. Not too many choices for breakfast but most should be able to make a lite breakfast of it. Smooth check-in and check-out. Could easily stay here again.

This is a very clean, comfortable motel. The bed was extremely comfortable. A bit of a problem upon arriving as we had requested a ground floor room and the owner said he had none available. We were early arriving and cancellation time was 4pm. My wife pulled out her phone and started calling Choice Hotels and immediately a ground floor room became available. The breakfast was warm colored water called coffee and watered down pitcher of orange juice. Big sign out front says HOT Breakfast. They did have bread and a toaster.

This was a one night stay on a cross country trip driven by the availability of pet friendly hotels in select areas. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was nice. It appears to be run by a couple, as they sometime close the office to assist maid in room make up. Breakfast was a bit of a diaappointment in that some items were still a little frozen and they had fruit drink (like tang) instead of fruit juice.
This hotel was just one in a row of budget hotels on this street without much scenery and was good for a night or two.

Room Tip: Stay near the front. The rooms in the rear are closer to the expressway.

Let me first say that the curb appeal is fine and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Although this property is not A+ for fit and finish, it is a B and is more than acceptable for an overnight, when passing through. It is a decent day's drive from Phoenix and my wife and I will most likely stay here again when we travel East.

The down side is the people that run it. They are obviously from India and they have no idea what American Hospitality is all about. The ice machine is outside and the morning was cold the day we left so the machine was frozen and non-operational. When I asked if it could be made functional, the answer was simply 'No'. When I asked if there was some other way to get ice for our travel cups, the answer was simply 'No' and the man behind the counter then turned and walked away into the back room leaving me standing there.

There is a Truck Stop at the East end of town where you can gas up and they were gracious enough to let us get the ice and water we needed for the day's drive and would not hear of letting us pay them for it.

All in all, we will probably stay here again for an overnight because it is convenient. This time, however, we will know what to expect from the people that run it. I can only hope that someday they will realize that they are in business for their guests and without us they will soon be doing something else. They cannot deal with the people of the United States like they may have dealt with the people in the country they come from and expect to be a success, especially if it comes across as rude.

I booked a room at this Econo Lodge with Choice Rewards points and was expecting a horrible bed - a la most Econo Lodges - marginal cleanliness and a poor night's sleep. I was surprised. The bed was very comfortable, the room was exceptionally clean and it was a pleasant stay. I do have two complaints:
1. The wifi did not work till morning.
2. The breakfast consisted of old looking cereal a few kind of scary looking hard boiled eggs.

There were myriad choices at similar looking motels in town, all advertising rooms for under $30...Had I paid for a room in Van Horn, I would have chosen another property. Still, a pretty decent choice.

The hotel was very clean. The staff was very helpful and considerate. Overall a pretty good place to stay for the money. If we are ever in Van Horn again will not hesitate to stay at this Econo Lodge again. The only think lacking was the coffee - plentiful, but not the greatest.
