The lobby is nice compared to the rooms. When I arrived at my hotel room I found bugs in both beds as well as long dark hair. Horrible experience! I would highly recommend going to a different hotel down the road.

anonymous123016, I apologize that we did meet your expectations and for your inconvenience on your recent visit. I immediately had our pest control company inspect the guest room and he assured us that the insects found were very small spiders and not bed bugs. I have also followed up with our housekeeping department with further training to ensure our rooms... More

I stayed at the holiday inn in Detroit Lakes, MN 12/6/15, found my Internet would not work in my room. I stepped out of the room and walked down the hall a few rooms, then I was able to connect with both my phone and tablet. I first called the front desk and explained what was going on. Later, I...

This place is wonderful. Relaxing atmosphere while overlooking the lake. The hotel and restaurant staff are warm and very welcoming. I would highly recommend this place for business or pleasure. This was my second stay here and the town is growing!

The hotel is old but very nice. The hotel staff is very friendly and very helpful. What really makes the hotel great is the AWESOME view of the lake. They have a pool and a beach swimming area. They also have a very nice play ground for the kids as well.

Actually, this turned out to be no stay so I cannot honestly provide a rating other than on the lobby. That is all I got to see since they gave away my reserved room when I didn't arrive untill 11 pm. I assumed that when i was told my room was reserved with my credit card, it guaranteed my room....

Love this lakefront hotel. Some rooms are lakeside walk-outs and others have balconies overlooking the beach and lake. Love the complimentary bikes, canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. They have a $4.25 breakfast including coffee - great price! The train can be loud during the day but I never heard it during the night. Front desk staff were excellent - especially... More

We stayed at this hotel last week for two days. Great amenties, location and staff make it worth the stay. Beautiful view of lake. Kyacks, canoes, bikes are reasonably priced. The hotel is older and tired but is very clean.

Nice setting. Request the lake side because that's the back of the hotel, otherwise, you may hear the loud, frequent trains. We had a ground floor room with a patio - so convenient to the little beach area. If you choose the indoor poolside, your patio or balcony will be warm & stuffy. Staff was helpful & friendly. Our room... More

Love this hotel. Right on the lake. Clean rooms. Excellent service from hotel staff. Great for families. Need to book early if staying in summer as rooms book up quickly. Beach could have used some attention at times as garbage from the night before was not always cleaned up.
