I made reservations well in advance for a weekend that was very busy with sporting events. On the day I was to check in I called to let them know I wouldn't be checking in until 9:00 p.m. They didn't have a reservation for me. When I said I had a confirmation number I was told my room was cancelled... More

This was an easy place to find, just off the interstate, conveniently located. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and very close to many restaurants for your choice. Included breakfast was delicious. If in the area, this is a great place to stay and very reasonable rates.

Very pleasant stay, polite staff, good breakfast, overall, I will be making this hotel my place to stay overnight on my way back home from my Wyoming trips each summer. I have two small dogs, and they supply a good amount of outside areas to be able to walk them. Plenty of close places to eat, and a close gas... More

Right off the highway. Clean room. But poor lighting in shower area. Our room had a good sized refrigerator, Kurig coffee maker, and microwave. I did hear the highway traffic all night long though. Comfortable beds. Lobby/breakfast area is small. Walking distance to grocery, gas station, restaurants. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean/small. Staff was very friendly... More

Traveling across across country on a family vacation-staff was super friendly (especially Donovan at the front desk!), rooms were clean, beds and pillows were very comfortable and the breakfast was good. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool and fresh late night cookies! **Wish they had lids for the coffee cups, though.

This hotel is going through some renovations so you have to be prepared for work going on around you. There is a strange odor in the hotel from all the new carpet they are putting down. Breakfast area was clean but very small and the selection is small. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There isn't much to choose from... More

Upon Check-in was told no hot water & not sure when they would have it on, could only get 1 car at a time under carport due to large rolls of carpet laying there. Several parking spots taken by dumpsters and materials. B-fast area has 5 tables, 2 tables are almost touching counters, there is no comfortable way to eat... More

Very nice hotel. Staff at ch.eck-in was very friendly and helpful with interesting facts about Minnesota and its history and people. Room and amenties were very nice. Hotel was easy to find off expressway in convenient location. Breakfast was ok but sausages could have been more well done and browned. Nice set-up. would stay here again. Good value
