Checked in during construction. Dusty noisy mess up front. Great staff despite the mess they were working in. The rooms are nice sized and very very clean. The house keepers here need a pat on the back. I love clean linens an a soft comfortable bed. Nice old school pool and hot tub. Great hot tub! Stayed here as a... More

Although this is still the best place in Willmar (until the new HIE opens), it's hard to give it a very good rating. The staff has made a valiant effort to keep it up, but it is just so old and so tired. With the ongoing construction, everything from the lobby to the public areas and hallways is a mess.... More

This is an average Holiday Inn that is in need of some updating. Its still clean and priced about right so its an okay value. I did see some updates going on in the entry so hopefully the rest of the place gets the updates too. There is a new express going in behind this hotel so there are options... More

It's a nice hotel with food and beverage options on property. It has good meeting space and a large pool area. Can get confusing to get around if your room is in the back. Rooms are nice and have had some updates.

A very run down hotel, but kudos to the staff for trying to keep it up. the maintenance staff was cleaning carpets and painting even though it was slated to close down and converted to a best western.

We stayed here for one night on Saturday 7/11, this was probably my 3rd or 4th time there. Location - easy to find, off main road. (they are under major construction/remodel so the parking lot and some exits are not available). Lobby - small, but clean and nicely decorated. Check-in was quick and smooth, however in the past they did... More

Ok, where to begin... The hotel is old. When you go to the front lobby, it's nice and updated. Free paper and coffee are available. The rooms are nice, and have very comfortable beds, mini fridge, and were perfect (we had two adjoining rooms). So no problems there. The staff were very friendly. The location is close to Willmar, where... More

Convenient location. Nice spacious and CLEAN rooms. Very quick response to pillow & blanket request even though we were as far from the front desk as you could be. The only thing that was missing was breakfast. The closest breakfast location was across town at the sub-standard Perkins.
