Cheapest motel in Detroit Lakes, by a lot. I read the reviews, heard the stories and said, can' t be that bad and it really wasn't. About what it expected, better than my $9.00 hotel in Mexico, and worse than my $ 800.00 in Caracus. The good; it's super close to the beach, just across the street, which in itself... More

Enjoyed staying here for WeFest 2013 and while this motel is older, everything was fine. We did not have any issues with the lodging here at all. Room was very clean and fully functional. Amenities were as described by their website. (pinetopalmdl.com) I was skeptical before arriving at a couple of the reviews posted here and I will say this:... More

This past year, I brought my family to visit to Detroit Lakes. This motel was not the most up to date, but....it provides a comfy, away from home feeling. Most importantly, it is clean and the service was impeccable. It is in walking distance to many restaurants and across the street from the beautiful lake. We fished, tubed, and thoroughly... More

We stayed at this motel for a family reunion and it was great. The onsite managers were hospitable, and were very friendly. Honestly the place hasn't been renovated in a while, but it was clean and that's what was important to us. The place has a great view of the lake, and we had a wonderful time hanging out at... More

Oh my goodness.....this place should be condemned. We were mortified at the room! The pictures on the website are not current pictures of the place. We drove 500 miles to visit an old friend and couldn't wait to get here....well can't wait to leave. The toilet seat was broken, (almost fell off the toilet during the night), a huge party... More

Worse than the other reviewers said, stinky, dirty poor service and a gathering place for drunks at night.

On our motorcycle trips we usually spend a night or two in a not so glamorous motel. This topped the cake! The room was filthy...with the exception of the sheets! Thank God! The shower had huge gaps in it...the suite next to us must get wet whenever the shower is used. Every electrical device in the place was plugged into... More

We expected a cozy motel room but found a dirty, run down room with no toilet paper or towels and a filthy kitchen that none of us would even go in let alone cook in it. We decided to stay and make the best out of it....owners could have cared less that we were even there. The only clean thing... More

Spent 2 nights in this dated, somewhat dirty vintage motel. Service was non-existant. Some family members had no towels, the kitchenettes were filthy, mold in shower , belongings from previous guests still in drawers and cupboards. Many more issues, just too many to list. The beds were clean and the location was excellant but beyond that it was not worth... More
