August 2014 was our second visit to the Ripple River Motel. Our room on the second floor (outdoor stairs only) was quiet and comfortable. The plantings are very attractive and well maintained, and the location really is right on the Ripple River, a pretty spot..Everything worked. About the only complaint we had was that the new "green" lightbulbs in the... More

Stayed here as part of our Big 2014 Road Trip. Exterior looked very inviting, and the rooms even more so. Very friendly and accommodating staff. On-site pizza and ice cream were very good. Not a low-cost place, but not horrifyingly expensive, either. And they're supporter of long-distance bicycle touring as well.

This motel is a surprise!..Things in Northern Minnesota can be quite rough at times and when it is pouring rain and the mosquitoes are out in vengence, finding this motel is heaven sent. It is newly renovated and has beautiful decor. New carpeting, cozy stove, and furnished in a real homey way. I wish I had reason to be in... More

We stayed at the Ripple River Motel for the second time in July, 2013. This motel is a definite "mom & pop" place and not a chain. The owners live on-site and do a great job of caring for their guests and the motel. They are very nice and go out of their way to be accommodating. Both times we... More

Stayed here on my way to N.D. it was very clean & spacious. We got the king jacuzzi room. The room decor is nice and inviting, room had a mini fridge & microwave which was nice with my toddlers milk & snacks. It makes for a great stop on your travels through Minnesota.

This is our third stay and this time we "splurged" on the king size/jacuzzi suite. Taking a jacuzzi bath while my husband napped on the bed, after a long day at the lake was quite the interesting and relaxing experience. The owners are nice, the place is so clean and the complimentary continental breakfast is just a nice bonus. The... More

My husband I wanted to get away for a couple of days for our anniversary. We had driven by this motel many times, and always talked about what an inviting place it looked to stay. I am not the type that needs fancy things, but I DO need the place to be clean. This is it! My husband wanted a... More

We have stayed here a couple of times with some good experiences and more bad experiences. The owners can sometimes be very rude as if they are the only Motel there is and you have to stay there. Not much for what they call a breakfast. Rooms are mostly clean with exceptions to areas where they don't move furnishings. You... More

We have been staying at the Ripple River Motel for several years - This is a one of a kind motel that is clean, safe, comfortable and charming. The decor reflects an up north woods style - light pine furniture with fun accents- Lots of Bear and Moose depicted in the rooms and on the property ie. the deck railings,... More

Ripple River Motel was a nice little motel in Aitkin, Minnesota. Stayed here 2 nights in August 2012 for a mt bike race in Crosby, Minnesota. Check in was very fast and simple. Main office was very homely and its a nice mom and pop operation. Attached to the motel is a nice RV park that has a nice creek... More
