We have come to the Boarders Inn & Suites for a couple of nights for the last 4 months and it has just been a delightful place to stay. The staff has been so friendly and helpful. The sauna had been wonderful! The rooms have always been very inviting. Thank you and we look forward to coming back. JG

This was a great hotel find, and a nice price for a midweek stay. We were on our way to St. Louis from Fargo, so this was a great location to allow us to avoid morning Twin Cities traffic. The hotel was extremely comfortable, extremely clean, and the beds were wonderful. The room was large, the only draw back is... More

Stayed here for first time , hotel is clean, comfortable and reasonable price. I asked for first floor when I made reservation, they told none available when I checked in and no elevator made hauling extra gear in. Overall a nice place to overnight. Property is well maintained

No complaints about this Boarders Inn in Faribault. The room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel is pet-friendly. Staff was courteous and welcoming when we checked in with our little dog in tow.

We arrived at Boarders Inn and Suites after driving two and a half days from NY to attend our daughter's graduation from Carleton College in Northfield. We arrived before their check-in time of 3:00 and they allowed us to unload our car and get refreshed before driving to Northfield for pre-graduation festivities.

Stayed for almost a week and must start by saying your staff provided high level customer service. Housekeeping and front desk were wonderful. Price including breakfast was well worth every dollar. It appears you have done some rents recently as we'll. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
