Driving between Minnesota and Texas, this was the halfway point where we stopped about midnight, needing sleep. I will admit that we looked for brands that are known for cleanliness and comfort first, but we were informed that most hotels/motels in this town were sold out due to hunting season. This was the first place we checked that wasn't sold out and we were tired, so we just stayed. It seemed weird, but I think it was originally a motel with outside doors, then they built an enclosing hallway around it. The hallways were filled with stale cigarette smoke smell, but the room was clean enough. Interesting decor with the deep red velvet furniture and carpet. The bed was hard, the pillows thin, but it was still better than sleeping in the car.
Breakfast was in the Branding Iron restaurant, but the free breakfast included with the room is a very limited menu. Still, scrambled eggs, toast, coffee and juice was pretty good. I would not stay here for more than just a stopover on your way through town though. I can't imagine being comfortable for an extended stay.
The staff was very nice though, and good, friendly service goes a long way towards making up for other lacks.
