This hotel gives pet owners their worst room. T was damp from too wet carpet, the bathroom was dirty and the door was warped. The tub was so old it was black with embedded grime. I paid the same price as every other person checking in, but got a substandard room. Holiday Inn has lost its reputation in this case... More

We stayed in a room that allowed pets. The curtains and bed spread were stained and the shower was not cleaned prior to our arrival as there was long black hair on the shower walls and by the drain. The location is good and it was the only hotel in town that I could locate that did allow pets. Perhaps... More

Nicely updated hotel. Smaller, but works for this area .Restaurant Rudy's had good food, but lighting was very dim where I sat, I used my cell phone flashlight app to read the menu. Only thing I didn't care for was a strange smell in stairway>beginning of hallway-some type of combination between musty and bathroom smell??? Very friendly staff.

The staff is most helpful asking often if we needed anything. The family had a birthday party for an 8 year old little boy so we had several kids out to swim. The large gathering area and tables around the pool were comfortable and things were kept clean by staff. This hotel has a great place to eat along with... More

Stains on bedding and cigarette burns. Loud fan that came on randomly, even though we had it on "off." Broken toilet. Thin walls and cheap windows, causing every noise to be heard within and outside the hotel. Hotel also overcharged us. We contacted them. They corrected the charged, but then charged us for the overage again - complete incompetence or... More

I travel every week for business. The restaurant attached to this hotel, the food at least, is terrible. Nice bar though. The thermostat in the room doesn't work.

The woman at the front desk was friendly and they had some delicious cookies for guests when the check in. Restaurant, bar, and expansive pool area (no slide though) on site.

We were in town for Minnesota ABATE U gathering. We were treated very well by everyone, from the front desk staff to the restaurant hosts, bartender, and wait staff, to the very courteous cleaning people that we saw in the halls, and everyone in between.

We stayed March 20, 2015 for a volleyball tournament. The room was nice and clean with pool view. Nice pool area. Food at Rudys delicious. Nice cozy bar. Only thing I'd like to see is a mini fridge in room like most Holiday Inns have.

This is a CLEAN, Comfortable hotel with a VERY GOOD restaurant. I was here for business. The desk staff were very pleasant and the hotel lobby had GREAT decorations for Christmas. The hotel IS OLDER, but it is clean. The room had comfortable beds. Bathroom IS VERY SMALL but I was here alone so it was not a big deal
