Allthough there are fancier places whith more amenities, this one will please you if you don't want fancy. Clean room, comfortable bed, good wifi, nice continental breakfast. Right next door is a convenient Perkins, so you just have to walk across the parking lot to it. Stayed there 5 nights last summer (2014).

Nearing the end of a three-week road trip and having had great success with ABV's, I decided to spend my final night on the road at this one in Detroit Lakes. It just didn't have the same good clean feel I had come to expect and upon entering the lobby I felt like I was in the midst of a... More

Good location behind a Perkins Restaurant and a very good price. Room was fairly small and the whole place seemed quite "humid". Friendly check in and good breakfast. OK for one nights stay if you are passing through

I stayed in this hotel ONLY because my hotel books through a third party and this is what I got. I was there during WE Fest so hotels were getting booked up. When I checked into the hotel the internet was okay to say the least. A few hours later and the internet kept cutting out. I asked the front... More

I worked at a hotel for 5 years and I have never seen a hotel more pathetic. Took 15 minutes for me to check in because desk clerk was on phone. Did not ask for my ID or credit card. Said my room number out loud when other people were around. Room was filthy. I honestly don't think the cleaning... More

My wife's words were "I'd rather stay in a tent." That pretty much sums it up. They checked us into a room that had not been cleaned. Three women then proceeded to fight over who's fault it was that this happened. When we finally got into the room, the only good thing was that the bed was clean. Other than... More

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights in June. There was no shampoo or conditioner and 2 almost empty rolls of toilet paper in the room. I was told they would get us some. After the first night still no shampoo conditioner or toilet paper and the bed was not made. The towels were replaced. I was told there... More

I stayed in a non-smoking room. It was located close to the opposite end of the building from the lobby. The hotel clerk so nicely told me that I the back door is closer to my room. However, I encountered smokers outside near that door so I didn't take advantage of that. Also, I followed the instructions in the bathroom... More

We stayed one evening in August and we were very comfortable. The rooms were clean, quiet and breakfast was fine. The staff was very friendly. It seemed like a good value! I would stay again when I'm passing through Detroit Lakes.
