“Lots of Stairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Room was clean and had everything we needed. Got it for $15 cheaper on motel6.com than hotels.com! Plenty of large vehicle parking in back and a Burger King with playroom right next door! Knob on tub faucet had a sign that said "pull" to turn on....not put your back into it! Special note....this place is riddled with stairs! Our big suitcases really took some finesse to get in and out.

Stayed March 2015, traveled on business

Clean, decent, no major issues, cheaper than a lot of the local competition. Allows pets on smoking floor...no extra charge. Modern enough feel. Flat screen TV in the room. Beds were fine. Pull down under the faucet to get the shower to work.

We were over charged first off, tried to tell the owner I can get a cheaper rate on their website, he argued with me that he just changed his rate. He couldn't understand that he should honor his rates on his website. That should have been my sign! The heat to the room was shut off, so the room temp was the same as outside-0 degrees. After we figured out how the heater worked, we stood by it for 1/2 hour to get warm. There were stains on the bedspread. Dirt, hair and rolled up toilet paper balls behind the bathroom door. One little blanket on the bed and we froze all night. If we both would not have been so tired from driving all day, we would have walked out. Pay a few extra bucks and stay somewhere else!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

I am a transporter and have a need for a nice room and quiet place to sleep and above all, room to park a large RV. This motel is great, brand new and they did a great job designing it to fit our needs. The staff was great and friendly. Highly recommend this one.!!

We stay at this property at least twice a year and this trip, we spent a week there. The prices are reasonable, the rooms are clean, and the folks who manage this place are very helpful. It is a Motel 6 so you do not have all the amenities but it is quiet, the beds are comfy, there are restaurants close by, and most important of all, it is pet friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

As with many Motel 6 facilities, this one is in poor shape. It was only converted to a Motel 6 within the past 2 years so I expected it might be ok-I was wrong. The bed was ok but the spread had a cigarette burn in the middle of it. The worst thing was that it was typical MN cold and the heater would not work hard enough to keep the room warm. I mentioned it to the guy at the desk and he said the new ones they put in don't work very well. Nice thing for a motel in the coldest state! The lobby area also had a foul smell about it.

Room Tip: Stay only if you can't afford a better place.
