Yep - my title pretty much sums it up. It's over in the Business District of Brainerd - not a big deal, but after seeing the place, and staying there, the $94 price (discount from Travelocity) was too much to ask for. We got there just after the 3 pm check in time and despite them taking 15 minutes to... More

I booked a room through expedia to stay at the America's Best Value Inn. I needed a place to sleep on a long road trip, and thought to plan ahead by booking a room online before heading to Brainerd. When I arrived at the hotel, they told me that there was no room and that someone should have called me.... More

The staff under trained or just have no sense of decoram. They advertise clean and comfortable but fail to deliver and have the... More

Oh m where to begin. First you gotta feel sorry for the person who works at the desk~~they get paid BELOW minimum wage. The one poor employee had to be summoned by using the phone and calling her room. The owners of the hotel should be reported. The hotel was stinky. The rooms need to be updated, sorely updated. They... More

They are running this on the cheap. The day I was there, there was a sign that read Branierd, Minnesota at the front desk. How do you mess up the spelling of the town your business is in? As far as the hotel goes, I was there for four days and only saw three other people in the hotel. And... More

I made a reservation for 2 rooms for 2 nights and did not bring the confirmation along with me - I thought the amount was higher, but since I couldn't check..... It turns out I was overcharged by $30.00. That was three months ago and I am still waiting for the refund. I have not let the issue drop and... More

We made a reservation for a non-smoking room. When we arrived we were told that we got the last room. The room smelled of cigarette smoke which kept me up most of the night. When I got home, the stale smoke smell was still clinging to my pajamas! Also the smoke dectetor was not working and looked like someone had... More

I did a thorough search of all websites and this Econolodge had the best rate. If you make the reservation though econolodge[--], you are given the AAA rate. When we checked in, we were given what the receptionist called a 10% discount for a total of $139 for 2 nights in a 2 queen room). I checked my on line... More
