This was a last minute trip. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a room that I would occupy for less than 8 hours, and my choices were VERY limited. So here's the Hitching Post, and it has a couple reviews that make it look OK, so I take a chance. I should have known when I... More

I recently visited the Hitching Post Motel located in Forest Lake, MN. I believe that it is currently under new management. The grounds were clean and well maintained, our room was rustic and clean. The motel is located slightly out of the city, it was quiet and very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay very much!

One of the hardest things about traveling with dogs is finding a hotel that will accommodate; especially without breaking the bank. The Hitching Post is a wonderful place to stay. No the rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean and spacious. They have a mini-fridge and the price cannot be beat. The entire hotel has a comfy rustic, camp feel.... More

I just spent a very comfortable night at the Hitching Post Motel. The motel has been recently refurbished and I enjoyed a comfortable bed with a hot shower for only $63.00 including tax. It is well situated, close to a lake and not far from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Mark the manager was both helpful and friendly. The motel reminded me of... More

I was in town for two nights (without my family) and simply needed a place to stay. The Hitching Post was perfect. Apparently, there is a new manager and they weren't familiar with the online reservation system. There was no record of my online reservation, but I was fortunate in that they had a room available for me. I guess... More

comfortable, clean, inexpensive, accommodating.... what else could you want? The gal at the desk was terrific. She went out of her way to make our brief stay memorable. They also take dogs--a bonus.

I needed an inexpensive place to stay 1 night for a class reunion. I was pleasantly surprised. My 2 bedroom suite was extremely clean and had a rocking chair, window air conditioner, and was decorated with country quilts. A sign on the wall said that portions of the movie "Fargo" had been filmed there. The bathroom was tiny with a... More
