The motel appears to be a hotel in the picture so this is deceiving. I was nervous when I dropped my car off for a park and fly stay due to the age of the motel. I found that the lobby smelled like smoke which made me even more nervous. Upon my return from my trip I had to take... More

I was satisfied with the stay. This was my second time stay in last 2 years and I will stay again if I am in Minnesota. Close to everything I visited, respects culture, authentic, staff very much friendlier, nice breakfast especially the coffee, large safe room.

I booked this hotel through Expedia and then happened to look at the reviews. I was preparing for a bad experience, but actually it wasn't so bad. I was worried about having my room door face the outdoors, as I've had a bad experience in other hotels where it was too noisy to sleep, but there is a separate building... More

That's what I got, an inexpensive room that was average at best. Phone didn't work and no one explained or gave me a wifi password. The cops were there when I arrived so that was like wow! There was a lot of garbage around the hotel and in the hallways. Blaaa and ewww were the words of the day! They... More

I'm actually staying in this hotel right now with my 3 daughters and husband. This place is a dump from the first impression of the outside, the crazy limited and tight parking, worn carpeting, chemical mixed with smoke smell, shower that doesn't seem to work(just tried to use the shower and it wouldn't work), dripping water all night, continental breakfast...

We booked our stay here without checking Trip Advisor, which is a little unlike us. When we did read the reviews, were a bit nervous. However, when we arrived, the staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. We were leaving for the airport early (5:30am) and they already had coffee on for us. There was one other...

Not a bad place at all. I had a very pleasant stay there. Looking outside coming in, I was a bit afraid. It was not so appealing to the eyes. It could use a nice bright paint job and maybe some flowers and a little green around the edges. Overall I liked the customer service and there were very friendly... More

I will never stay at this hotel again. The whole building reeked of smoke. We got in at 9pm and needed to leave by 2:30 am.

I stayed here for the low price of its park and stay ($140). I was not expecting much being 2 stars, but I will never stay here again. The sheets and pillow cases smelled of body odor, and had stains and hair on them. They were obviously used previously and were not changed. We woke up the next morning really... More
