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.

We had a wonderful stay. Joel provided exceptional service and made sure we had everything we need for an enjoyable family weekend. He recognized our Club Carlson status, provided a room upgrade, and did everything with a cheerful and positive attitude.

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.

Hotel needs a complete remodel and serious cleaning. First room they put us in I did not want to walk on carpet even with my shoes on. The 2nd room we had to settle for was no better. Filthy stained stinky carpet, soap scum all over shower/tub, very dirty bathroom, soiled curtains, frig and microwave unusable. NEVER again!. We did... More

Part of the Carlson Hotel chain. The double room suites are our favorites. A very good morning breakfast buffet. The staff is most friendly and helpful and know us by name as we have stayed here 3-5 times per year for the last 9 or so years.

This was an okay stay but the decor was tired and needs some updating. The black out curtains in my room were stained along the hemline. Also the shower curtain in the bathroom needed to be taken down and washed as it was dirty at the top where guests grab it to pull it back. The sheets on the bed... More
