Lou’s Lodge was a great place to stay while visiting family in the Madison, MN area. All other hotel options were about 20miles away, and Lou’s accommodations were simple but both clean and comfortable. I had a great experience with their staff both when calling to book a room and while checking in. And the price was great. I’d recommend... More

All I was looking for was a quiet place to lay my head and a hot shower. Dropped in here, seeing there was just one car in the entire parking lot, asked for a quiet place to sleep and a hot shower. Gave me the room right next to only other guests. No biggie. I'm tired. My bed is opposite... More

We visited the property while on the Salt Lake birdwatching weekend. The hotle is clean, Ron the Owner is very friendly. Complimentary coffee and ice. Nothing fancy about the place, just a decent place to stay while in the area. Seemed safe and the room was quiet.

This is the only place to stay for miles around. Fortunately, while not luxurious by any stretch of the imagination, it is resonably priced and the rooms are comfortable. The room fan/AC is fairly loud, but provided a nice background of white noise that was quite comforting. Lou's lodge primarily caters to local hunters. The owner is very friendly.
