Before I go into why you should avoid this place, let me tell you the nice things about it: 1) The second floor communal balcony patio is awesome. 2) Adam, the night clerk is friendly, competent, and genuinely concerned about you and your family’s well being. 3) The design of the hotel is architecturally unique. Don’t stay here and this... More

This hotel is old and needs remodeling. It is not a luxury hotel. But it is very clean, and the reception desk staff (open 24/24) are very friendly and helpful. It is literally across the street from St. Mary's hospital (Mayo Clinic hospital). I stayed here for 10 days while my mother was hospitalized. If you want an economical place... More

We are very happy with this hotel, very reasonable and accomadating. We were on the second floor by the balcony and breakfast room. Someone did a fantastic job with flowers and plants on the open balcony. It's fun to visit with other guests as you enjoy the view. Our room was clean and had a little kitchenette.

Don't expect luxury, but this hotel is very comfortable and clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. There are good places to eat within easy walking distance.

The Fiksdal Hotel has an atmosphere of "Come in, and make yourself comfortable." The staff is wonderful, and Adam was very reassuring that we could stay an unexpected extra night. The rooms are modest, but it is so nice to have room to have a microwave, fridge, and Coffee-Maker. The complimentary breakfast is sufficient, not a huge spread, but enough... More
