Was told $70 with reservation, ended up being $83. Room had dead bugs behind bed, no convenient plug in for the clock, coffee maker was dirty, towels were thin, and bed was like a rock. Owner was nice though. Needed a place that would take our dog, but then had to walk her behind the building in the mud and... More

I called late on a Saturday evening to make a reservation for my aunties for the same evening. Joanne at the Gopher Prairie Inn was wonderful, not only over the phone but in person. She could teach customer service as she was very patient and personable. My aunties liked their room and enjoyed chatting with Joanne.

Very dated motel that has seen better days. While it was old, it was very comfortable and clean and worked for us. Could be updated but am going to guess it won 't happen. If you just need a bed, it works but don't expect any extras. Close to interstate.

This motel has no thrills but is perfect when you are looking for a place to sleep after driving a long ways on 1-94. Its right off the interstate, can see from the road. Clean rooms with microwave & mini-fridge. Soap & shampoo dispensers in shower. Picnic area. They allow dogs for a very small fee. Owners are very friendly.... More

If you are looking for an up-to-date motel with bells and whistles, don't stop here. If you just want a bare-bones, clean room at an affordable price this motel will fit the bill. The owner was gracious and gave us a free upgrade on a slow evening.

We were doing some work in town and just needed a place to sleep. The room was clean. There was a frig and coffee maker in the room. The bed had a pillow top mattress on it. I told the owner that it was kind of soft for me but husband loved it. We did not finish the work that... More

We tried to stay at our usual place in Alexandria, but they were full because of a band festival. So we found this place. It's tired and old, but the rooms are large, the place is clean and it was definitely worth the fee. Our air conditioner was new and worked well (and we needed it!). It has the (now... More

I reserved this on priceline for a good price. we had decided to save money and stay cheaper. rooms were clean. every room opens to the outside. the owners were friendly. not bad for the price. I would recommend if not wanting to spend lots of money on lodging.

When we arrived at the Inn, I wondered what I had gotten myself into. It looked run-down, but we gave it a chance anyway. The room was very clean and the owners friendly. The beds were comfortable, and the room had a fridge, though we didn't use it. The wifi didn't work at all, and the air conditioner worked, but... More
