We've stayed twice at this hotel because it is a good mid-point between Minneapolis and Rockford, IL. With a number of low budget motels in this very tourist town, this hotel is new, fresh, and affordable for young families. The hot breakfast is very nice and the staff does a good job of keeping up with the demand. I've found the staff to be very helpful and friendly in a very busy atmosphere. It may be a more quiet location out of tourist season. I have to say I love the pancake machine!!
