The room was very large and decorated in an up north cabin style. It had all the amenities, including a room safe which we didn't use but paid an additional fee for Bed and pillows extremely comfortable and the room was very clean and quiet. The water park would be great for kids. If that is what you are interested... More

Thank you for the great review. We get many, many comments on the decor and we love to hear them. The fish pattern on the carpet, the log furniture and all the Up North canoe lamps and extra touches definitely are well accepted by the overwhelming majority of our guests. But the highest compliment you can pay us is clean... More

Just returned from our 2nd time staying at Comfort Suites and I can't tell you how wonderful it was again. We originally were staying at another hotel in the area and extended our stay. We then came over to the Comfort Suites and were so glad we did. The cleanliness and comforts of the room make this hotel a no-brainer... More

Traveling through the area and decided to stay here. King bed was great, room and hotel were decorated nicely. Great free, hot breakfast with a couple of bar and grills within walking distance. Would definitely stay again!! Didn't check out the waterpark

Karen, Thank you your wonderful response to our survey. We do so much family business during the summer it especially nice to hear from a guest that enjoyed our property when the water park wasn't the top priority.

We spent our last night of our Bemidji to Brainerd Paul Bunyan trail tour here in early July. The room was very clean, cozy and not outdated. The air worked great on a got day.

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...

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.
