After you have to call the front desk lady to come out to check you in (yes, they have a phone you have to dial for someone to come help you), you are greeted with a stench, it only gets worse when you walk into your room, and the air conditioning just made it worse. We had a scare after... More

*NO SMOKE ALARM in the room!! *BROKEN shower head sprayed water to ceiling *Sink and shower would not drain *Smelly, musty room..filthy carpet and bathroom floor not cleaned *Fur-like dust behind fridge I'm almost positive that smoke alarms in each room are not only standard, but the law.... I do not recommend this hotel!!!! Stay far far away!!!!!!!

The title says it all. The room smelled, there was a dog in the room next door, barking constantly when we checked in, both beds had a crater in the middle and should have been replaced years ago, room was dirty and smelled like urine.

There are not many choices for hotels in Brainerd, MN, so we weren't expecting much. However, we had a wonderful experience. Apparently, the other travelers didn't have the same young woman working the front desk. She was friendly, competent and efficient. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.

I got there early, and they would not let me check in. I am handicap, and I'm very limited to how long I can do anything; drive, sit, stand, and then some. I had nowhere to go to wait. There was not one car in the parking lot, and as far I'm concerned, no reason to not let me sign... More

This is quite possibly the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. It's a complete joke. We were in Brainerd for a family wedding which was only a couple miles from the hotel so we thought it would be perfect. The location was about the only thing that was good about our stay. When we checked in the girl at the... More

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
