“Good choice for bicyclists; nice breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

The Nichols Inn is our choice when staying in Red Wing and biking on the Cannon Valley trail. The hotel is located on the West side of town, about a mile from downtown. But downtown is just a short bike ride along the river on a bike boulevard, and the Cannon Valley Trail is the other direction about a mile. There's a good bike shop (The Wheelhouse) a block away (to the West). Kelly's Bar (best craft beer selection in town) is also a block or two away (to the East). The Nichols offers one of the best free breakfasts you'll find, with waffles, french toast, and hard boiled eggs (always my test for a good continental breakfast). Rooms are clean, if a little generic, and the staff is always friendly.

Red wing is a beautiful small village close to Rochester and twin cities. This place is a suitable nice place to stay while you visit the city. It has good performance for its price

A relatively inexpensive hotel that is clean and well maintained are hard to come by, but this place fit the bill. Quiet location. Decent continental breakfast.

We were on an impromptu bald eagle-watching trip and a gas station attendant told us a new-ish hotel opened up the street so we checked it out. It's a little confusing to find the front door tho the hotel sign is very visible from the road. The front desk is on the other side of the building from where cars enter from the main road, and then the check-in area is adjacent to another hotel, Americinn. The check-in guy was very friendly and patient and showed us a couple of guest rooms before we decided to stay. Most other lodging in the area started in the $80-90 range while Nichols had a $60 special so we took it. There isn't a pool but bfast is included--make-your-own-waffle, cold cereals, bread/bagels, donut holes, yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, microwave french toast--no meats. The guest rooms have mini fridge and bath&body works amenities, free wifi. The beds seem lower end and springs creak whenever you move. The bed linens are very basic while the towels are decently plush. The area wasn't particularly busy so there was just occasional street car noise and I only heard train blowing in the morning (was glad they didn't run at night). They advertise the hotel being constructed with some sort of special material for sound-proofing but don't know if it was any better than normal. There may not have been anyone next door to us since it wasn't busy. Could still hear other guest room doors open/close and there was some rumbling sound, perhaps from vending machines. Most immediate loud noise was from the room heater. For dinner we went to Smokin' Oak just a few min drive north which was much better than expected (rotisserie, BBQ etc). Overall very clean hotel, friendly workers and bed is fine for one night.

Room Tip: Make sure not to get room next to elevator

Nice, very clean room, and a friendly staff. The lobby was inviting. Free WiFi. Price was reasonable. Only stayed one night, but the room was immaculate and the place was very quiet. Most parking is around the back. The hotel is right beside of the Americana Inn when trying to get to it.

We stayed at the Nichols Inn on Friday October 28th, 2011. It was clean and we got a rate for $74.00. The room was a good size and had no issues. The staff was really friendly and free continental breakfast was great. Only thing I didn't like was the lack of parking but otherwise would recommend over the other hotels in the area.

My husband and I stayed here during the recent fall festival. We had never been to the area before and thought this would be a good time to check it out. Other hotels I looked into were either booked or terribly rated on this site so we opted for the Nichols Inn and were well pleased. It is nothing fancy, but clean, clean, clean and tidy, and that's how I like it. It isn't near downtown where most of the action was during our stay, but it is close to the pottery district and several restaurants. The continental breakfast was okay, but we opted to have breakfast at the Smokey Oat Cafe up the street which was excellent. The room was very quiet and had some nice amenities like "Bath and Body Works" soap and shampoo and also a great full-length mirror in the room and a nice vanity mirror in the bathroom. Overall, a great stay.
