This small motel has been around for years, i believe. It is an example of what overnight stays used to be--clean, functioning, efficient and basic. I really appreciated the cross ventilation afforded by windows which open on opposite sides of the room. The fresh air gave us one of our best sleeping nights on the road in 3 years. Well... More

Working in the Alexandria, MN area and needed a place that was close to the worksites, simple, and accommodating. The Skyline met all of my requirements. Also, if I was in the area for fishing, this would be the perfect place to stay. Its close to tons of lakes and has room and power to park/charge your boat. The price... More

I rate this motel as five star of its type, ie strictly economy. No pool, no bar, no hair dryer, no extras beyond microwave, fridge, TV, and free WIFI. What you get is a rate lower than Motel 6, spotlessly clean, and a very comfortable bed. New owners are continuing a tradition of friendly service as well.

I reserved a room at the Skyline based upon what others had written and, while the room was clean, next time I will spend the additional money (about $30) for hair dryers, a TV that comes in clearly, soft towels, and their "free" continental breakfast. I was disappointed and will not go back.

We stayed in #10 (of 12) and it had new a hardwood laminate floor, new tile floor in the bathroom and new tile all around the bathroom - including a stone counter and new sink.... More

This is not a fancy place, but if you're looking for something cheap and clean, this will work just fine. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and a quiet area. The motel is a bit dated, but that's just fine with me.

Stayed one night in Sept 2014, very nice and clean room, I liked that there was laminate flooring rather than carpet. Room also has a small fridge and microwave, no coffee pot though.

You can step back into time by staying at the Skyline Motel, just a few blocks outside the center of town. From parking right outside your room, to the vintage '50's tiles in the bathroom, just the necessities are available for your overnight stay: small room with reasonably comfortable bed; a chair, table, and small television complete the scene.
