We purchased a room for 3 nights so that we could come shower and relax in the mornings. The first day we had black hairs in beds and on the bathroom before we used anything. The manager came up and apologized and was super nice. The next day there were beetle looking bugs on the carpet. We over paid and... More

Very nice and helpful staff, comfortable beds. We had a wonderful time there. The indoor pool is great and the breakfast buffet was really good. We will definitely be back for another vacation. We really enjoyed the location also.

This is a great location for a hotel. The beachside hotel is great for families. However the pool was closed and no one told us when booking or even upon check in. One day it was miserable outside and the pool would have been great for my kids. The front desk also didn't explain anything about rentals of water equipment.... More

Turbomomof2, thank you for your review and I apologize that you were not informed of our pool situation prior to check-in. We unexpectedly (which is why advance notice was not an option) had one of the water pumps go out in the pool area and closed it down as a safety precaution. We did get another pump installed in less... More

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate my Moms birthday. This was our 3rd year in a row doing so at this hotel. Easy to find, nice location in regards to everything in town and right on the lake with a nice beach. Check-in was smooth as usual and we were given a nice room overlooking the lake. The... More

My husband and I had excellent service our entire weekend stay. We got rooms through IHG points. We booked online and it said we were going to get two standard rooms. We ended up with a King Suite on the 3rd floor, and a King whirlpool room, beachside. Wow! We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. There were paddle... More

Beds are very comfortable. Nice water pressure in the shower. Great location right on the shore of Detroit Lake--has a great seating area outside. Downside is that it is a bit dated. A/C is very loud in the room.

re-cate, thank you for sharing your thoughts with the Trip Advisor community. We do have a great location with one of the best beaches and patios in the area and all the toys to go with it.

My DH & I stayed here in July. We loved our room, facing the water with a nice little balcony. The room was quiet, spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. We also enjoyed the live music at the outdoor bar. Fun setting. The downside, the elevator was horribly dirty and the hallways were dirty also. Not sure why... More

We stayed at the Detroit Lakes holiday Inn for two nights while attending a high school reunion. The views of Big Detroit Lake were wonderful, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

bobandjoan124, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We have made every attempt to provide an environment for people to enjoy "lake living" without the cost of ownership. On the positive side we have an awesome beach and are also busier because we have so much to do (kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, bikes, etc.) which means there... More

This hotel has four choices for a wheelchair accessible room. Some lake view, some beach side, ours was a king bed room in the back, no view, but a bit less expensive and nice and dark for sleeping. Good sized room, had decent turning radius on one side of the bed. The Bathroom was large and had great handrails. The... More

Dear Jim-Denise, Thank you for providing such a comprehensive, positive review. Sounds like you had a great time during a very busy time of the year for us. Next time make sure you check out the paddle boats, canoes/kayaks or bikes, free to guests for the first two hours every day. Douglas Anselmin General Manager More
