Great friendly and helpful staff. The short short girl was my favorite. Always had a smile and willing to help.The rooms were clean and decent in size. We appreciated the fridge being in our room. Loved being by the quiet pool and hot tub. The breakfast was delicious. Great nights rest!

Have been to Willmar for 2 different weeks this summer to watch my son play with Willmar Stingers summer collegiate baseball. Stayed once in a room with a king sofa sleeper on the 2nd floor (room 201). Nice sized room and very comfortable. Next stay was room 126 with 2 beds across from the pool. Also a nice sized room....

This was a nice, clean hotel which is a big PLUS in my book! We went for the weekend to see family/friends and it was a nice, refreshing sight to have a clean room with a squeaky clean shower. You'll never go hungry on this breakfast buffet either! Every day is a new breakfast, never the same thing. The biscuits... More

The staff really try, I believe. Whether it is the quality or number of staff and/or lack of training, they seem to get some things right and tend to miss others. Room cleanliness seems to be a consistent thread between visits. Other issues from bill accuracy to functional TV remotes seem bigger than they should be because of the other... More

Thank you for your feedback. Your observations are somewhat accurate, as we do have several new staff still learning the ropes. Sometimes that can cause some beginner errors that we try to avoid. Hopefully at the time I post this response, our newer staff had gained the experience to minimize the potential for errors. We apologize for any issues related... More

We came for a wedding on a Saturday. The staff working, I think their names were Nadene and Jessica, they were extremely friendly and funny. The hotel was very clean. The halls were a little confusing. The hot breakfast was great! They didn't skimp on the hot choices. We had a great time! The beds are sooooo comfortable! We didn't... More

Very nice hotel with a nice size room. Our room was facing the pool but we loved it because we have kids. It was nice just to walk out the sliding door to the pool. Room already had pool towels! A nice touch! Room was very clean and cleaning staff left a nice note. The only negative thing was the... More

The receptionist was friendly, hotel room was clean, and bed was comfortable. Appeared to be updated and stylish. There were two attached bar/restaurants and it was in a great location. The only hotel I will stay at in Atwater!

I have stayed in many hotels. I have never seen one designed so poorly. The layout is a quad with rooms either facing outside or inward, toward the pool. Unfortunately, ours faced the pool. That meant we had no window. It also meant that we had to endure a great deal of noise from the indoor pool. We had specifically... More
