Got a GOOD nights sleep. Already have reservations for a return trip in November. Would like to see a better continental breakfast, had plain doughnuts, no... More

We were visiting family in the area but needed our own place to escape to. Kids appreciated the great WiFi and I the clean room and shower! Nothing exciting for breakfast but we had other plans for that. The fridge in the room was clean and cool.

Front desk was friendly and helpful, room was decent-sized and clean and it has a small fridge/freezer and a microwave. Shower had great water pressure and water heated quickly. Older building. There's a field/large lawn behind the hotel that families with younger children could play in - some were throwing frisbees once while we visited. As others have said, breakfast... More

Everything I wanted for a business trip: Clean, quiet, safe, and cheap. Receptionist was right on top of everything, and accurate with her directions to nearby places I needed to go. Don't count on the complimentary continental breakfast being more than hot coffee and cheap cereal - Kix, Trix, CocoaPuffs. Hey - you are at least ten miles from any... More

This Econo Lodge is near the intersection of highways 75 and 12, just over the South Dakota line in the Minnesota town of Ortonville, a few hours west of Minneapolis. The property must be at least a decade old, but is reasonably well maintained and competitively priced. Our room was very large, with a queen bed, recliner, work/dining table, and... More

Plenty of room and clean. I have stayed in places just as nice for less money. I think it was a little pricey for the location. Our room was at the top of the stairs and I was pleasantly surprised we didn't hear more noise.

We had a 2 queen larger room, and it was very spacious, even with a roll away bed, did not lose any room space. Clean, had a recliner, a/c worked well. Breakfast was cereal only, but worked ok. Wifi is kind of wonky, have to log onto a site every time, and sometimes will have do again while already on... More

This place surprised me for the price we paid. It was clean, had a fridge, microwave, and a recliner. The bed was good and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was minimal, but I didn't expect much from an economy motel. It was worth what we paid.

I stayed all week working on a local road project. The place was booked solid and I called the hotel after making my reservations through the toll free line for a night I Corp could not get for me and the manager hooked me up.
