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

This is our first choice of hotels when we come to the Elk River area. The breakfast is great. So are the always-fresh cookies in the lobby! Although our room was right by the elevator, we had NO problem with noise. I only have two negative comments: 1 - The rooms don't all have refrigerators. 2 - Although we were... More

We have stayed here a few times. It is clean, however this visit it was very noisy in the hallways. I have found the fitted sheets don't fit properly to the mattress so you wake up with the sheet off.

Great customer service -- The best that I have ever seen at a small town hotel-- the breakfast was delish each day and the staff was very polite yet not in your face trying to over do it. the hotel was very clean and well kept for an older building.
