My husband and I checked in on Jan 16th for the Snowmobile Drag Racing Event. Our rooms were booked wrong, even though we had called the night before to confirm them. We requested a cot to be sent up as there were 2 guys in one room. The cot was left in the hallway for us to set up with... More

LakeGirl12345, Thank you for taking the time to share your very positive comments. Sounds like you had a great time. Just so you know, it is even more fun in the summer time with all the outside/water activities (Biking, kayaks, canoes etc.) that we have to offer our guests. Hope to see you this summer.

We were in town for a wedding that took place at the hotel and the service in every area of the hotel was excellent. The wedding reception was elegant with lots of space, great bartender, and the food service was very quick with a delectable meal. The reception at the front desk was very welcoming and efficient, my wife appreciated... More

We decided to take a mini-weekend vacation and head north to check on the cabin. We decided to stay at the Holiday Inn because friends and relatives have stayed there when they've visited Detroit Lakes and raved about the food and the service. They were right! We checked in on a Friday night and the rooms were updated, beds were... More

Mark R. I was unable to find any history of you ever staying with us. I only found one reservation that had been canceled by you for a standard room with one king bed.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Detroit Lakes at the beginning of Feb. I booked my double queen room with points and when I got there, they gave me a key to a King room, which was $20 cheaper a night. I used the phone in that room and called down saying this is a King suite not a... More

scl55, I have researched your reservation and found that you booked a room with one king bed through the Orbitz reservation system using "orbucks" (their independent points system). As this is an independent third party web site we have limited ability as to how Orbitz represent and sell our rooms as well as if special requests are correctly conveyed to... More
