This was one of two Americas Best Value Inn that we stayed in this past summer and Fall. Both were very shabby and in need of some upkeep. The one in Finnlynson was depressing, the 'continental breakfast consisted of a dirty little alcove with a crusty coffee pot and the coffee was definitely 'instant'. Another counter had a plastic dispenser... More

We stayed here as all the hotels in Duluth/Superior were booked due to an event there and this was the closest hotel available. Upon entering the hotel, it smells of smoke. The receptionist told us to leave the key in the basket when we left in the morning & sure enough, there was no one at the reception when we... More

The rooms were standard. The furnishings were old and very worn. The rooms were messy. There was stuff on the floor from previous occupants indicating that if the floors had been vacuumed the person doing so did a lousy job. This hotel has smoking and non-smoking rooms, so it all stinks of smoke or deodorizer. The walls were thin, so... More

Recommend not staying at this hotel. Uncomfortable, unclean, dingy and overall very unpleasant experience. Can't recommend this hotel. Walls and chairs seemed dirty. Bug in bathroom. Overall we were very uncomfortable and did not sleep well or feel we could relax in the room.

Stayed here one night only. Friendly service. Continental breakfast set up was hilarious though. A small fridge below a counter w two kinds of cereal adjacent to the check in counter. No juice machines or toasters, etc. Bare minimum. Rooms were very ordinary. Can't really say anything terribly bad or good. Just run of the mill.

The room was filthy, right down to the dried blood dripping down the inside of the dollar store shower curtain, hair in the sink, stained bed covers and sheets! The smell of cigarette smoke was so overpowering we could barely breathe let alone sleep for the one night we stayed. All of our luggage 'stunk' for the remainder of our... More

The hotel was inexpensive. No frills. Was looking for a reasonable alternative to Hinckley Casino lodging that wasn't gross (as I'd heard about the other Hinckley locations). The hotel was quiet, easy to find, was a short drive to the casino for the show. Had a microwave and mini fridge as well as a couch and table in the room.... More

This is a basic motel, so don't look for things like a snazzy lobby, or much of a breakfast (breakfast is about as basic as it gets -- coffee, milk, and your choice of Cheerios or Fruit Loops). But the three of us enjoyed our stay here. It's reasonably priced and comfortable, and located very close to Banning State Park.... More

We chose to stay here for one night when in the area for a wedding. Rooms seemed clean enough, reservations easy, helpful staff, easy to find off of the interstate. Beds were nothing opulent but my family and I slept very well. The property is showing its age some but is being kept up decent. I chose here amongst the... More

Like others, were going to a concert at Hinckley amphitheater and the casino hotels were booked. Looking at other Hinckley choices in Tripadvisor, we were less than impressed with the reviews. Found this Americas Best Value a few miles north and were pleased with our choice. Clean, comfortable, good rates and a pleasant staff. Thanks
