We had a large group of people stay at this hotel for business and weren't treated very well by the female day manager. Not very warm. Spoke to me and some of the crew I was with in a very demeaning way. Won't stay here again because of it. I was eating a sandwich in the large lobby area and... More

I would not stay anywhere else if there was a Timberlake in every town. Very large, clean and comfortable. We have 5 kids with us and it was an amazing stay for the whole family.

Stayed here with my parents and my son as we explored northern Minnesota. Terrific accommodations. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The attached restaurant was delicious for dinner. Breakfast was larger than most. My son and I enjoyed the pool which is large, warm, and has a fun water slide in addition to the usual items. there is even a... More

Passing through MN on Hwy 200, this hotel is 10-15 min out of the way, but easily the best in the area. "Master suite" with separate bedroom area was a great set up for our family.

This was a great hotel...especially for a small town like Rapids. My husband and I grew up in the area and were in town with my teenage daughter for the week to see his family. We got a suite so there was a little privacy sine we were there for seven days. The entrance is grand...the staff all smiling and... More

We had a great stay at the Timberlake Lodge. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was terrific. The adjacent lounge was a great place for our family to meet and socialize in the evening. Did not experience any problems and would definitely stay here again in the future.

My young family of four loved our king suite! The boys loved having their own "room" sleeping on the pullout couch and my husband and I appreciated not having a door between us, yet still being able to watch tv at night (not spongebob) and not keep the kids up. It was an added bonus that the double headed showers... More
