“More than I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I didn't have high expectations for the AmericInn in Tofte, MN. I figured chain hotel, budget price point, just looking for a place to sleep.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out the hotel staff to be extremely welcoming with a great sense of humor. The breakfast was really well stocked with a wide variety of foods considering it was of the free variety. Eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, waffles, cereal, muffins, English muffins, bagels, coffee, juice, milk, yogurt, granona bars etc etc. Rooms were clean, nice large pool, hot tub, sauna.

If you are someone who survives on lots of tv channels and RELIABLE high speed internet then you'd be better off looking elsewhere. You have about ten channels to choose from and the internet while being free was extremely unreliable.

You will love this place, the price, the way they treat you. The breakfast is so good and well stocked. Everything about this place is a plus!! The gal at the front desk had her husband come in to fix our toliet arm that broke, and when we asked if anyone left a back pack at their place so we could use it for our hike, she had her husband come back and bring her back pack for us to use. They could not have been nicer. Very nice place for the price. We will be back.

Room Tip: I know they have suites too but didn't stay in those types of rooms.

The hotel room was clean and spacious. We splurged on the jacuzzi room which my husband used twice for his sore neck muscles. However he didn't care for the pillows. I didn't think they were to bad. We stayed here just one night. The breakfast wasn't to bad. They had some fruits and instant oatmeal along with biscuits and gravy. Also some bagles. I think there was more but can't remember it all. The internet and cell service was spotty to say the least. This is definitely one of the down falls of the hotel. So if you are looking for internet this isn't the place to stay. If you don't need it, it is a decent place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was very good with only one exception, the internet was terrible. Breakfast was nice, room was comfortable, pool was great and the motel was very clean. We would stay again for sure. I think they plan to upgrade the internet this fall.

We recently stayed at the American Inn in Tofte, MN on a quick trip to Canada and the MN Northshore. The room was clean and had all the amenities stated. Myself and my 12 year old son walked down to the lake which had yet another beautiful view. The downside it was late and we just wanted something quick and reasonable. Ok so we ate at the Holiday Gas station next door. There didn't seem to be anything close enough to walk or drive for that matter. I would of loved to see an attached restaurant/cafe.
Just beware, there is no cell service here or much on the Northshore at all. The motel did have Wifi.

I have to say that we stay the 1st night on top of the hill at your Proctor Hotel that has just been remodeled and is very nice adjoined by the "Blackwoods Resturant/bar". The rooms were nice and its worth the coupon you give for the "Blackwoods as they have great food". While heading up the Northshore I have always wanted to go to your silver bay hotel with water slide but think the prices are a tad too spendy. We love to stay at "Tofte" as its inbetween all the great things to do along the north shore. You have a very sweet Austrailian Lady that works behind your counter and would do just about anything to make your stay the best ever. I love that they offer all the fixings to make smores out by their fire pit outside the property. Great place to mingle with other travelers and take in the fresh air and some star gazing. I will say that I think they need to leave only a few rooms available for "Dogs" only . Instead of some of the downstairs rooms having a musty dog smell thru out the building. Maybe some new carpet /paint and bedding as they did in Proctor with limited dog rooms. Im a dog lover so its just a suggestion. Love the rewards points as we use AmericInn all over and love the breakfasts to start out your day. Love the pool time and the comfortable fireplace decor for a relaxing stay.. We will be back!

Room Tip: Do upstairs to prevent noise from the hot tub rooms. Do upstairs to stay away from dog rooms.

This hotel was reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was very attentive. Our room smelled stale and smokey upon our arrival and immediately we were upgraded.The room included a microwave and frig. The pool area was large but the hot tub was tepid and the sauna was not at all hot which was disappointing after a drive. The continental breakfast was fine, with hot waffles and the usual assortment of bagels, cereals and yogurt. The coffee left a little to be desired.I would definitely stay here again.
