It was nice, it has a decent little indoor water park. The hotel is clean and breakfast is ok. It was loud do to the water park and all of the sports tournaments going on in the area. But the hotel served the purpose.

Justin, "The hotel is clean" is one of the highest compliments we can get, thank you. I'm happy to hear you had a good time but you are correct that that was a busy weekend. The first two weekends in February are a huge basketball weekend and a hockey weekend that fill every hotel in the area and sometimes even... More

Our granddaughter turned 1 and we had the party in a meeting room and also used the water park. Grandma and grandpa and auntie stayed in a suite. Very nice! Room could have been a little wider but overall very nice. Somewhat spendy for a one night stay. But overall very clean, staff was polite and no noise issues for... More

Cindy, You saw the "Magic"! Even at just a year old your granddaughter made a memory that will last a lifetime. Kids have so much fun in there we never get tired of watching them.

The hotel was lovely and in a great location! Most of the staff was very helpful and friendly; especially Laura- a true peach! Breakfast was great and the staff went out of their way to get it ready a tad early before our boys final game on Sunday. Big rooms and great value. The "pool police" could stand to learn... More

Very clean, comfortable two queen bed suite with sofa bed. Perfect for family of five. Clean and comfortable with normal wear and tear. We were able to check in two hours early. First floor is in the middle of a remodel, but doesn't affect any guests. Waterpark was never crowded. It's in need of some maintenance, but kept clean. Staff... More

Thank you Matt, "Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff" are about the kindest words an old hotel guy can hear. If we weren't blessed to have the staff you encountered none of those would be possible and it's always appreciated when a guest acknowledges them. During October every square inch of our hotel was re-carpeted and to undertake a project of... More

This motel looked inviting upon pulling in. Had the log cabin look and looked like it was well kept.When entering lobby,was greeted by a nice young lady.

None of what you described can be achieved without the staff you were so nice in describing. They... More

This lodge is a gem. More important than this Comfort Suites' great location, immaculate rustic-looking facility (including a state-of-the art indoor water park) and comfortable bedding, the staff understands the importance of stellar customer service. During our two-day stay, we found that each employee (whether at the front desk/breakfast area, maintenance, preparing rooms or in a managerial position) acted with... More

This looked like an awesome place for families... The water park looked excellent but we never got a chance to go for a swim. We stayed the night before we did a 12 hour race on the Donnybrook course at Brainerd International Raceway. We had worked all day on the car in the heat so the clean room and shower... More

Scott, Thank you for the wonderful review. Twelve hours of racing would send me to a hot shower and bed too! You're right in the fact that families have a ball here in the water park. If you ever have a chance to come back with children, and a little more time, give us a try. Kids make family memories... More

We like this hotel with the lodge feel to it. Beds are comfy, staff is friendly and breakfast is adequate. This time the carpet in the room was very dirty.
