We had a fabulous time at this great hotel. The Waterpark was a big hit with the kids. There was many water activity choices for kids of all ages. My nephews and niece loved the waterslides and lazy river the most. They also were impressed with the great taste and variety of choices at the continental breakfast. The rooms were... More

Thank YOU for the fabulous review. I'm so happy to hear how much your niece and nephews enjoyed the water park, kids really do have a ball in there. We, as well as the entire Choice Hotels system, has made a real effort to improve on an already good breakfast over the last year or so and it's great to... More

We enjoyed 2 nights here. The hotel is easy to get to, in a central location to many area attractions, shopping, lakes and places to eat. The Up North decor is appropriate for the feel of the woods in northern MN. The lobby was welcoming with nice, furniture, river rock wall and fireplace. All staff were friendly. We didn't use...

SandyFeet, Thank you for the wonderful, and very thorough, review. We do our best to project a clean family atmosphere upon arrival and that giant fireplace and Up North lobby decor you mentioned gets many great comments . Summer weekends can get pretty crazy sometimes but we are lucky in that the water park brings in a lot of family... More

My wife and I stayed at this property July 12 and it was a very enjoyable stay. Every employee we had contact with was very professional and very courteous.

Thank you for all the nice comments. A "professional and courteous staff" is what we try very hard to project. Our staff has been with us for a while and a comment like yours goes a long way to brighten their day. I always make sure all reviews are available for everyone to see as it really indicates what's important... More

This was the best hotel we stayed at over a 17-day trip with our three children. First of all, it is super clean and seems brand new. The decor is wonderful and you feel like you are in a mountain lodge retreat (room decor was even better than the Great Wolf Lodge!) The breakfast was good.....cereals, waffles, hard boiled eggs,...

Reviewed this property last year and said I would be willing to try it again. So we did try it again and have to give it high marks once more. Booked two rooms for us and our son and his family. The suites are good sized and allowed us to all get together in one room or the other to... More

Jeff, Thank you for coming back and doing a second review on us. I’m happy to hear your grandkids had a great time in the water park. As busy as we get this time of year and still hear the hotel was quiet and non-intrusive is also a super compliment. Being a family hotel we do get a lot more... More

The only reason I did not give the hotel a 5 star rating is that it is located just off of one of the main streets in Baxter, versus somewhere more secluded with scenic views. The room was spacious, clean, and beds were comfortable. The hotel is tastefully furnished in a "Great North Woods Lodge motif." Hotel staff were pleasant... More

Thank you for the great review. Spacious, Clean, comfortable beds are always our first goal and you couldn't have given us a nicer compliment. We did our best during construction to try to blend location and North Woods and like yours we get many compliments on the decor. A pleasant and helpful staff is also a must, I'm glad succeeded...

This hotel is very family friendly. The waterpark is the perfect size for our kids (6 & 5). The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The lifeguards actually do their job, and were kind in doing so. The breakfast was great, rooms were quiet - overall excellent stay for the price. We have stayed here twice now and will return.

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 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.

Thank you for the great review. Our staff tries very hard to accommodate the requests of groups.
