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.

The room was adequate, abut the restaurant and bar staff were excellent. Food was outstanding, didn't expect fo find that there. Much better than a chain restaurant. The breakfast was ok but very crowded in the food area people were running into each other..

Rooms were fine. Internet worked fine. Location is a bit out of the way but Aberdeen is small. Food is horrible or nonexistent, but supposedly breakfast in particular is being addressed. So, Eat elsewhere and don't expect even bar good after 11 pm.

While this is an older hotel, they are updating their facilities and adding a continental breakfast as of 12/1/2014. The room was clean, bathroom updated and firm beds. The staff was kind and helpful with information about Aberdeen and directions.

The hotel was pretty decent especially for the price. There was a dirty washcloth left in my shower and the restaurant was closed for breakfast. The hotel was gracious enough to provide donuts, muffins and juice but we were really expecting to eat breakfast at the restaurant. It also is not located on the main street, but it's only like...

For the time spent in the hotel property, the cost was high compared to my past experences in higher cost areas. I believe the hotel management jacks up the price for incoming hunters, and does not have any give backs to compensate for the high price!!

Dear James M., Thank you so very much for taking the time to write a review!

During our hunting season we provide added benefits including a free... More

After searching around for an open room without luck, we decided to try Best Western. Sure glad we did!They had one suite left and we were able to get it down from $149 to $120! On the other hand, the wifi wasn't the best so we had to sit by the door.

This is an older hotel but it has been remodeled nicely. The staff was very friendly, the lounge, restaurant, food was very good. There is a steakhouse on site, but also has other items on the menu. I had the pizza in the lounge and it was awesome!
