The General Mgr., Mr. Patel, and his staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. My request for a room away from other guests for quiet was honored, and the room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The windows could be opened to allow fresh air in, which I like. The location is on, and within walking distance of, the main streets, and the Riverwalk/Harbor area. Very convenient to the Lake Michigan Car Ferry and just blocks from Washington Park. There are several restaurants and taverns nearby. It is an older building in an older neighborhood, not much to see from the outside, but it is clean and seemed safe. I expect if a guest had any problems or questions, the mgmt. would do what they could to help.

I spent a month there for a power plant outage and was very satisfied. The room was very clean and the management were prompt if I needed anything. The beds were comfortable and the stall shower was large. It is in an older part of town but you can walk to stores and eateries or drive about a mile to every store you can think of. I would stay there again. It did have WIFI

We stayed 3 nights. The owners were friendly and helpful. There is a computer in the lobby for guests which wasn't working when my husband first tried it. But the owner spent time trying to get it running, and it was fixed the next day. They were very accomodating. We had a suite with a king bed, frig and microwave, plenty of room. The carpet and bed and flatscreen were new. The bathroom needed some updating, but I understand they are working on accomplishing that. The breakfast was continental, so we didn't expect much. Fresh fruit was all we needed. The coffee could have been hotter.
All in all, though, we enjoyed our stay, felt comfortable, and will return.

Econo Lodge Manitowoc rocks! New management is very friendly and attentive to serving the customer. Newly-renovated and decorated rooms are beautiful. Our bathroom was clean and the walk-in shower (no tub) was HUGE - - a real plus! The very affordable room rates come with a cut-rate continental breakfast (all-carbohydrate, pre-packaged), but fresh and plentiful in a well-kept dining area. If breakfast is really important to you, use the money you save on the room and take yourself out to eat. Common-use Internet computer performed well, and Wi-Fi service was fine. Whatever problems existed with the predecessor Heritage Inn are completely gone! Don't let the downtown location fool you. Yes, the area has a few "adult-oriented" establishments, but it is also bustling with reputable and family-friendly services (e.g. The Fuzzy Navel coffee shop!). So, drive the meager two miles off of the Interstate to stay at the Econo Lodge Manitowoc. You won't be sorry.

We arrived in Manitowoc after dark and we were unable to find this hotel even tho our GPS led us to it.
The hotel apparently has recently changed ownership and there was no "Econolodge" signage identifying it.
It definately was not the same hotel as the one pictured on their website.
This hotel was run-down and stunk. There was dirt on the carpet and it appeared to have been many days (months) since it was last vacuumed, much less cleaned.
The room bathroom doors and adjoining room doors did not lock correctly- we pushed a desk in front of the adjoining room door!
The neighborhood was run-down and appeared unsafe, there was a strip club next to this hotel, a few footsteps away.
When we brought our concerns to the attention of the manager we were told that the doors did lock, that the hotel was clean and that they have no control over strip clubs.
He offered us a free night but would not refund our money.
I told him I would not stay in his motel again if he offered me a free YEAR!
