I am very disappointed in the customer service and I've not even stayed at this hotel as of yet. We booked 2 rooms for a "girls weekend" with Pam over the phone, at no point did she explain there would be a $20 cancellation fee if we needed to cancel, nor did she refer me to their web-site policy page....

We stayed three nights at the Red Hotel in September 2014. Jim and Pam have done a great job in updating this hotel. Every room was nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. The bathrooms positively sparkled!! The grounds are lush with flowers and there are plenty of seating areas for enjoying the views. Attention has been paid to small details so... More

Stayed there twice now, once with prior owners and once recently with the new owners. Significant upgrades to the property in the past several years. Grounds are very inviting, rooms are greatly improved. New owners are great... very friendly and attentive. Only drawback for us is that the room smelled of smoke. Aired it out for the first day and... More

We've just returned home from our annual stay at the Red hotel and we miss it already. It's so relaxing sitting on the hill and listening to the music across the street. Life is too short, so if you need some time to slow down and enjoy a few days away from a hectic life, the Red Hotel is the... More

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Red Hotel - easy walking distance to dining and shopping, and right off the bike trail. The Cherry Room was rather small, but clean and pleasant. We used our chairs on the porch often. The courtesy coffee was nice, and Jim, the Innkeeper, made sure it was ready by 7am when he... More

Upon the completion of our last trip to Lanesboro, we rebooked our rooms for this year. Well it was another incredible experience. We arrived a couple hours before the scheduled time we were to get our room, but that was no big deal as we were planning on biking anyway. We changed in the bike lock-up room and off we... More

Eight retired teachers found Brewster's Red Hotel perfect for our summer get-away. The Studio apartment was our gathering place and the patio held a wonderful view of all the comings and goings of beautiful Lanesboro. The sleeping rooms were extremely comfortable and roomy. Owners Jim and Pam could not have been more friendly and helpful. The biking trails are all... More

We have stayed here for a long weekend for three years and love it. It's a great location....we park our car and don't use it again until we leave. We love sitting on the hill and having a cocktail and appetizers ( which we bring with us) before heading across to Root on the River for dinner. The rooms are... More

My hubby and I went to Lanesboro for a couple of days to bicycle. While we pick destinations for their biking opportunities we also look for quality accommodations to spend our non-biking time. Brewster's Aspen apt was a great fit. The hillside location was quiet and private. Two nice clean rooms, small kitchenette and a spacious deck made for a... More

Made a reservation a week before the day to stay could not view rooms on web page so called, no mention was made that they required two weeks to cancel room. Called to cancel and they promptly charged my credit card for full amount plus. Unfriendly rude people.
