We stayed in the hotel for a weekend basketball tourney with 5 families. The front desk help was very NICE and accommodating. The team had a great time and loved the stay. Our family loved the King suite. The breakfast was top notch. I would stay again. Clean and the bed was great.

I received best service and breakfast. All staffs were very nice and knowledgeable of the events around Elk River. Its housekeeping service was good and their hot breakfast were the best. All of fitness equipment are brand new.

I stayed here for a week on business. I didn't do much other than sleep here, but it was clean and the staff was pleasant. The hotel is dated, but the towels and bedding have been updated and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is close to Perkins, but not a lot of other restaurants are near by (not... More

The hotel and amenities are great value. However, the sofa-beds provided in the suite rooms are EXTREMELY poor and are un-usable. No pillows or blankets were provided for the sofa-bed either. Asked manager on duty, and was informed they only provided this single sheet as a "blanket". The sofa-bed could not be slept in and guests were left without a... More

a little dated but great! Our room was comfortable and clean! Minor things like dusty vents in the bathroom and shower head was old. Loved the cookies in the lobby and the breakfast was good! The hotel is somewhat confusing to get to. Staff was friendly and helpful. Something they could do is provide more newspapers I was disappointed when... More

I chose this hotel off of the internet as a place to stay for a family reunion. The staff was friendly and helpful although it was busy when we arrived on the Saturday at 1:00 pm. Check in was at 3:00 pm and one room was ready so that my 80+ father could go rest before we met with our... More

Robert and Dian… M, Thank you for choosing us for your family reunion. We are pleased that we were able to offer you an early check in so your father could rest before the event.

A great place for a family outing or a couple's get away. My daughter and I had a mother / daughter trip and this hotel in Elk River is comfortable, very quiet, easy to get to and the staff is very pleasant. It is close to Albertville Outlet Mall for shopping and Applebee's is just 2 blocks away. We used... More

Hotel fit the bill; exactly what was required. Late afternoon arrival after 7 hour drive. Quick swim - decent small hotel pool. Off to Vikings game and back. Overnight and gone. Rooms very clean, roomy. Off the beaten track but very well located for downtown Minneapolis and VERY good for Albertville Outlet Mall. Typical breakfast. Good not great
