We stayed at the Nisswa motel for one night while we were in the area for a birthday party. We found the motel to be very clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. The location is good and the front desk staff was very friendly! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet clean and... More

As stated in other reviews, the Nisswa Motel is just that...a motel where the doors open to the parking lot. Location is superb, owners are super friendly and accommodating, and although the rooms are not 'modern contemporary' design, they are large and super clean. Would definitely stay here again. (I almost hate to say how much we enjoyed it because... More

Location right in town, one block from Paul Bunyan Trail, along with previous good reviews on this site led us here and we were not disappointed. Room was comfortable, highway noise minimal. Facility does not look like much from the outside. Modern TV, very good freezer with our frig- actually able to keep some things frozen. One older, well worn... More

Owners went above and beyond the call of duty to insure our stay was enjoyable! Very clean as well. The open plan, single story motels have fallen out of favor perhaps but this was such a nice throwback to traveling with my family growing up, that it was nice for my kids to experience it.

The Nisswa Motel exceeded my expectations in many ways. My room was spotlessly clean, well maintained, quiet and comfortable. The motel is within short walking distance of Nisswa's shops and restaurants. Access to Rt. 371 (and thus the area lakes and attractions) was quick and easy. Overall a great place to stay.

I stayed here on a Saturday night while in the area for a wedding, and was very pleased. The location is excellent in the cute touristy town of Nisswa. The rooms were very clean and updated. The employees I interacted with were all outstanding, I would say I have never received more pleasant service anywhere. There is plenty to do... More

Have stayed many times. Walk to local bar, restaurants, shopping. Nothing fancy but clean, and the staff is very friendly/helpful... Have recently added flat screen televisions, a nice add to an otherwise older property. Green parking near rooms/doors.

Clean & comfortable room. Very nice staff!! We had difficulty with getting the TV to work, but finally got the correct remote ( 2 more remotes were in the dresser drawer). Walking distance to some awesome shops! We spent at least 1/2 day shopping and the evening enjoying a baseball game going on right down the road.

We are frequent visitors to the Brainerd Lakes area 3-4 times per year and always stay here. The rooms are super clean and neat. It's reasonably priced, very quiet and right in downtown Nisswa so walking to shops, restaurants and the Paul Bunyan Trail is easy. The beds are comfortable and the owners are very accommodating. We've already made our... More

Great service and the place was very quiet. Rooms were very clean and no bad odors. All the amenities you needed for a rustic weekend getaway. I will most definately come back again. Stayed 2 nights and had plenty of towels and bathroom supplies without having to continously go back and forth to the office. I would recommend this place... More
