We traveled to Brainerd for a weekend getaway and booked 2 rooms at this hotel. Our room looked okay at first glance but then when we lifted the comforter off the bed there was filth all around the edges of the bed (broken paper cups, half eaten tums, dog food and other dirt, dust, etc). The bathroom floor appeared to... More

Unless you are extremely desperate....Do NOT stay here!! First they give me a room that had not yet been cleaned. When I asked for a clean room the receptionist walks from behind the counter barefoot and as I follow her proceeds to look in each room trying to find a clean one. After sometime she says, "here is one". I... More

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

This place was the worst place I have experienced at any price. Is clean and polite too much to ask at $90.00 a night. Our first room was so filthy they moved us to a different one. 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
