I was disappointed in this hotel. It is run down and doesn't appear to be near anything of interest. If you are not here to fish on a lake nearby, then I hope you brought a good book. They have VCR tapes on display but no VCR. You know it's bad when you're hoping for a VCR to watch Outrageous... More

Did not enjoy our stay here. Rooms are run down and plain. Not much for atmosphere. Pool was cold, hot tub broken, door was propped open for ventilation. Breakfast was included but not very good. Staff was friendly enough. Not much positives to add.

We stay here every year on the way to our cabin about a couple hours north of Deer River. Stay just for the night but travel with 2 large dogs and it's always more than accomodating. Pet friendly, but doesn't smell like it is, very clean, and has a decent restaurant attached. Haven't stayed for the breakfast but covers all... More

Impressive curb appeal and front lobby, new north woods style building, clean new parking lot, imprinted brick-look sidewalks, back door entrance very clean and attended --- which is not true at most hotels...... Pleasant and accommodating staff at front desk New looking interiors with fairly good carpet, freshly painted large rooms with attractive large window but no sheers--only drapes. Quartz... More

We stayed in November and we've stayed previously...nice hotel and staff is always friendly and helpful. Grandkids came for little visit and swam and enjoyed pool area. They especially like the kiddie pool and frog slide. We like that its pet friendly and there's a nice little area to walk your dog. We love this hotel. No complaints!

Quiet clean place to stay when you travel to the North woods. Great indoor pool with a children's pool and a hot tub. Rooms are a nice size and clean with a mini fridge. There is a nice continental breakfast with some warm items.

Not a fancy place, but a comfortable, clean place. The breakfast does not offer much, and end up usually eating elsewhere. On one visit, after receiving our room key late at night, we went to our room opened the door, and somebody was already in that room! We were all surprised, needless to say. At least we did know the... More

We needed a place to stay, so we stopped here. Upon entering the lobby, there was a girl on a couch reading a book. I approached the desk then she asked me if she could help me. I asked about a room for the night, and she immediately got on the computer and started asking for my information. When she... More

Small, but well kept. Didn't get chance to check out swimming area. Arrived late and left right after the normal, limited breakfast fare. Took a late meal and drink at the adjacent White Oak Grill and Bar - Excellent food! One of those surprises that makes your day....
