If you like to be around screaming kids between the hours of 7:00am and Midnight, then by all means, you'll enjoy the clean comfortable rooms. We weren't expecting peace and quiet, but we got the impression right away that this was going to be an unusual experience when we saw the family of 8 checking into a standard room 2... More

We stayed as a family in two rooms on the 3rd floor, a king suite and a double suite. Both were very roomy and had nice rustic decor. The rooms were clean and well maintained with nice towels and flat screened TV's. No issues with heating or cooling and all the fixtures worked as they should. The breakfast was good... More

Scott, yours are the kind of responses we exist for in the Hospitality industry. "The staff was excellent from the front desk to housekeeping and the water park guards". As a person that has worked in the industry you obviously know what counts. Our hotel isn't brand new, I would never try to convince anyone it was and family oriented... More

We stayed here with a group of 18. This hotel is located near many eating establishments and some shopping. From the start the staff was very friendly, informative and very helpful. With families with many children we prefer to have rooms next to each other with adjoining doors. The staff made sure this request was met! As stated in some... More

Thank you for the great review. Our staff tries very hard to accommodate the requests of groups. Everyone wants to be close to friends or teammates when traveling so if at all possible we honor the request. Sometimes it's like working a giant jig saw puzzle to make the rooms come out right but there is a sense of satisfaction... More

My husband, myself, and our children had never been here before and wanted to try out a new waterpark so I reserved a Queen Suite. The moment we walked in, the front desk was very helpful and prompt. The rooms were very nice, especially for the price! The waterpark was on the smaller side for others in the area but... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. It's music to my ears when a guest says things like " the desk staff was prompt and helpful" and "the lifeguards were very attentive" because as I've written before, all we have to sell is service!

My daughter and I stayed here overnight after heading back to the cities after a concert in Bemidji and we wanted a halfway point to stay overnight and not make a 5 hour drive late at night.

That has to be one of the nicest reviews we've ever received, thank you. We work very hard to see that staff is welcoming and polite and when it wows a guest like you it make us feel great.

My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday night in September. Our room had a king bed, a pullout couch, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, and a safe. This hotel is not a new Comfort Suite Hotel, but is my guess to be around 15- 20 years old and is frequented by a lot of families with children because... More

I stayed here while in Brainerd for work. I only stayed one night. I didn't realize there was a water park attached until I checked in. My room was on the first floor very close to the pool entrance-but surprisingly my room was very quiet. No major noise. Room was clean and quiet. Front staff at the desk could have... More

Commercial guests are very hard to entice into filling out a review and when they do, they are precise and to the point as yours was. The balance between commercial travelers and families can be a real challenge. I was happy to hear that even being close the water park entrance you had no noise issues. A clean, quiet room... More

As we were leaving we both commented on how clean the lodge was - then outside there was staff cleaning the porches and the parking lot. Obviously a priority to management. It is also decorated nicely. Logs, stones, spacious rooms. A nice Lodge theme. Our room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay again.

Thank you very much for the nice comments.
