A friend and I stayed here for a night to visit some other friends in town. The room was nice and clean and was fairly up to date. The bathroom looked almost brand new! The best part of the stay is the Minerva's restaurant (unless you have kids, then of course it is the pool, which looked very nice/fun also).... More

Don't stay in the bi-level suite if you have a family! It only has a king sized bed and the couches are not even sofa-sleepers. The living room furniture only will seat 3 people! I guess this suite is meant only as a honeymoon suite. Too bad! It would be perfect for a large family if it had more beds... More

Dear Darla E., Thank-you for taking the time to write a review. We are so sorry that the Bi-level suite didn't offer the seating you anticipated for your large family. It is true that this particular suite is better suited to couples and honeymooners, however we have several other suite types including family suites, two-room suites and L-shape suites which...

I've HEARD that they have recently done some renovations, but there is still work to be done. While the price was good, there are several options in Aberdeen and for the few I've stayed at I have only had one time where I would say more attention to detail was needed. We found 2 beer bottle caps in our room... More

We always stay here when in Aberdeen. Come hunting for two weekends every fall with our house/hunting dogs. The hotel is very accommodating for our dogs and have a great dog walking area. The food at the attached restaurant, Minerva's, is exceptional. Sometimes after a long day hunting, we will order room service with the same exceptional food.
