Econo Lodge

When it comes to overnight accommodations, there’s a lot to be said for a clean, comfortable, smartly priced room and the trust that comes with a recognizable name. Just ask Lisa Slupecki, Marketing Director and Chief Bottle Washer (her words), of Econo Lodge® of Traverse City.  

“We get people here from all walks of life…families, single travelers, contractors, and truck drivers,” she explains. “They all have one thing in common…they want affordable comfort and easy access to the main interest points around town.” The Econo Lodge delivers on all fronts. 

Located just south of downtown Traverse City, the Econo Lodge offers 47 newly refurbished rooms. Last year, the property added all-new flooring and furniture and completely repainted the interior. New artwork and landscaping create a fresh and welcoming feel. An indoor pool and spa are perfect for end-of-day relaxation. 

In addition to offering great comfort at an attractive price, Econo Lodge offers something many guests find very appealing…more space. The property includes expanded parking for oversized vehicles, including trailers, RVs, and more. “It’s something few, if any, other places offer,” says Lisa. “It’s an added convenience that we’re happy to offer to our guests.” 

When it comes to offering hospitality to her guests, Lisa and her whole family get involved. “My husband, Mark, and I manage the property, which my in-laws own,” she explains. “It’s definitely a family business. Even our seven-year-old daughter folds and washes clothes.”
