I never write reviews. However, after seeing my son literally chewed alive during a stay here I felt compelled to let others know to stay away. Even if they have sprayed for bed bugs, that only means the rooms are filled with pesticides. I strongly recommend you stay away from the Rodeway Inn in Baxter. I'll be sleeping in my... More

Brainerd and Baxter Minnesota are terrible places to get a hotel during August each year when NHRA comes to town for their Lucas Oil National competition. That weekend is what the locals call "race weekend". All the hotels double their nightly rates. Many hotels take non-refundable reservations for that weekend which is the case for the Rodeway Inn Baxter. I'm... More

The staff here obviously is not up to the standards of even keeping a hotel up to reasonable standards. The rooms were not very well kept, the tv didn't work or the batteries on the remote were dead, the carpet was stained, they had painted the room but when painting the bathroom they partially painted some tiles which made it...

I was expecting the worst after reading some previous reviews. It's definitely a budget hotel, and there is old furniture sitting out back near the parking lot. But the room is very clean; there is a new flat-screen TV; bathroom is clean with good water pressure and quick hot water in the shower. The guy who checked me in, is... More

When I was young my family stayed here when we would visit Paul Bunyan down the road. Back then the hotel was a Thrifty Scot. It was a nice place.. Well Paul is gone and the hotel is not very nice. Coworkers reported bugs. I did not have any but the stains and smells in my room were not good.... More

The owner of the hotel check me in. He personally did the transaction. Overcharged my card that I did not find out till later. It was done intensionally as I had specifically confirmed the charges a second time with him. Aggravation!

This was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Bedding and pillows were so bad I went to Kohls next door and bought new just for one night. Bathroom was disgusting they never cleaned the urine and hair around the toilet. Tub enclosure glued on over old tile, ceiling tile stained. No ice buckets, cups or glasses. Entry door... More

The NEW sheets had urine stains, again!! They never apologized for the inconvenience!! Breakfast was bad, no food choices such as eggs, yogurt, etc. Bananas were... More

My family and I booked a week at this hotel. While we stayed we had no room service had to get our own shampoo, soap, liens, ect. We also had to take out our own trash. To top it off they never even changed our bedding the whole time we stayed there either. We finally ended up switching hotels. The... More
