“Loved our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stayed at Nichols Inn when Treasure Island was booked and we had concert tickets. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome for continental. Protein (boiled eggs) and dairy choices (yogurt) were appreciated. There seemed to be someone cleaning constantly and it showed. We will definitely stay here again.

Very pleased with a 2 night stay at Nichols Inn. Very clean rooms, good choices for breakfast, easy to get to. Free WiFi and accommodating staff. Hard mattresses, but cleanliness is most important to me. I would stay here again, especially if watching my budget.

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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

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.
