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.

Have stayed at other hotels in this chain. This one has been one of the nicer ones. Room was well maintained. Bathroom was small but with sink outside, it worked fine. A little warm and I am tired of the duvet covers that seem to be the rage. But check-in and check-out was fine. Breakfast was better than some in... More

Helpful friendly staff. Clean rooms. I like that there was a refrigerator and microwave in rooms. Continental breakfast was included and was ok but could have had a little more choices. Location was close to downtown area (Detroit Lakes Mn). Good rates. Would definitely stay again.

The staff was friendly and helpful. They answered our questions about the shuttle. We loved being able to take the shuttle to we fest. The location is convenient. We enjoyed having the free breakfast included with our stay. We would love to stay here again.

Room reeked of smoke. Our stuff now smells like smoke. Gross. We didn't smoke in the room, it just reeked as if a rock band had stayed the night the before. At least our dog could stay, but now he smells like smoke too. Also the smell ruined our own pillows we brought. Would not recommend.
