Came for a class reunion. Country Inn was booked up so got reservation here, Then, read reviews. Figured, Hey, only 2 nights & it's a bed. Arrived to a very cordial greeting by owner, subsequently joined by his wife & 2 lovely children :) Neat! Room is nothing fancy, but is spacious, Very Clean; No, no bugs as others reported.... More

I was stranded with my dog due to terrible weather and I could not get a room here. I understand the no pets policy but with freezing temperatures and no where to go, you would think a motel with an empty parking lot would make an exception. I even offered to pay extra for a pet deposit. I do not... More

After traveling all day for business and the 3 hotels in Morris being full, all I wanted was to get to a hotel and relax. I needed to stay somewhat close to Morris for a early morning meeting the next day and not being familiar with the area whatsoever, one of the hotel receptionists at a Morris Hotel suggested Benson...

This was once a Super 8. I can sympathize with the owner not wanting continued affiliation with the Wyndham reservations system. The bed was comfortable. Carpet and floor were clean and free of hair as was the sink and counter. Good AC and TV although not a flat screen. But it had a few crawling bugs in the room- Not... More

I saw some review was little concerned...but what I cared was a clean room and basic amenities. I was 45 minutes early as the check-in time was at 3:00pm but, with request to allow early check-in the manager was pretty happy to accomodate. Rooms were clean which I cared most. I extended my stay for another day as the rates... More

RUDE, Arrogant owner!! He is not "Minnesota Nice" and it was the 2nd worst motel stay I've ever had and I'm 64 years old. He told me he didn't care WHAT people wrote about him or his motel because "he doesn't read them anyway". Even though my wife's family lives in Benson and we go there several times a year,... More

I have stayed at this hotel for a few times in 2011, and it is not a bad place to stay. The manager, BJ, was a very professional and curteous and his staff efficient. This hotel is clean with nice rooms. There is no breakfast, but by saving the money on the room, I was able to go to Sandy's... More

I have stayed at the Benson in twice before and never had a problem. They must have a new manager his name is Brijesh Patel. If he's not new then I was lucky before. It all started when I checked in harrassing me about having a room with one bed. Really I have no problem sleeping with my female friend... More

The hotel is nice and clean with attached restaurant and bar. The shower was warm, but far from hot. Generally a nice hotel with few drawbacks other than the shower.

BJ and his staff at the motel took care of all my sales reps with great service and the rooms were very clean and beds very comfortable. It is nice to see that customer service is still important to some people keep up the good work and excellent service BJ.
