Our room had obviously been a smokers room, and very recently. Cleaning fluids tried to disguise the odor, but only made it worse. Beds had foam egg crate type pads, probably to disguise bad mattresses, but were very uncomfortable. Had we been staying more than one quick stop on our way through, we would definitely had to find a different... More

We got stuck in Brainerd and just needed a place to lie our heads that wa safe and hopefully cheap. Well, apparently, you never want to get stranded in Brainerd. This was the cheapest place in town and still $127 a night. Trust me, I have stayed in some very nice rooms for that price. But, this room, I have... More

Sleep in your car before you opt for this hotel. Had no other options while in town for business and needed a place to stay, so we opted for America's Best Value Inn based on the reviews on Orbitz, which were favorable. Not sure where those people stayed, but it couldn't have been here. Check in took over half an... More

When we checked in and went to the room there were no face clothes and only 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels. The room was a non smoking but there was a empty cigarette package laying on the arm chair. I called manager to come down with the face clothes and to remove the cigarette package so he could...

$99.99 per night for a $20.00 room. The room had a stale smell and there was a hole in the wall. The TV had a fuzzy picture as if the cable wasn't hooked up properly and it was positioned almost level with the bed so watching it while you were lying down was impossible the hall carpets were full of...

I made a mistake and forgot to book a room for this particular weekend. So last minute price was way more than this room was worth. It was the height of the summer tourist season, so not much was available. Good: Card key worked first time everytime Fridge & microwave Ample light and counter space by sink Sausage & biscuits...

Awful! Overcharged us because it was around 4 th of July. Rooms smell funny. Walls need painting. Not enough towels in the rooms. Everything's unplugged and you have to find outlets for the lamps. They allow dogs and they bark all day long! And management won't do anything about it! I would never stay here if I had a choice!

We started our 10 day Motorcycle trip by booking this Hotel......WORST mistake we made. We should have known when we pulled in the parking lot, it was a weekend and there was not one car to be found. We went to cancel our rooms and the lady charged us full price for both rooms even though we canceled. I could... More

The room was a good size, the beds were bouncy but comfortable. The bedspreads are quite old and in need of replacement. Other than that, the room was clean and comfortable enough for an overnight or 2. The front desk girl was very nice and welcoming. Breakfast was good.
