3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I was disappointed with the quality of furnishings and bedding. The size of the breakfast area was not adequate for the number of guests and the food was mediocre (not brand name yogurt or cereals). The room was clean, although sparce and the bathroom vanity was too small to accommodate our toiletries. The hotel is located very close to very busy Hwy. 61. The price for the room was not a value for what you get (King, nonsmoking room). I would look for other lodging in Red Wing next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a upper floor away from the highway.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We spent one night here while biking the Cannon. Valley Trail. They had a stay and bike special so the room price included 2 trail passes. The very helpful desk clerk let us check in early so we could change into our biking clothes! The room was plenty large with frig and microwave. For being close to a main road, it was quiet. Breakfast was basic hotel fair, nothing great.

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.

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.
