Fab hotel for a few days away with my daughters and a friend. The complimentary bikes, canoes, paddle boards and kayaks is one of the main reasons we stay here. Access to their own private beach on the lake is the best and breakfast on the outdoor patio tops it all off. Remember to visit Zorbas while you are in... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Pictures don't quite do this hotel justice, as it is literally ON the beach and has an outstanding bar/restaurant with a fabulous patio and awesome views. Despite leading into the Labor Day weekend, the hotel was serene and pleasant to be... More

We had a great stay at the holiday inn-Detroit lakes! The staff was so nice and Joe was especially accommodating and patient! He went out of his way to make sure we were set up and had everything we needed after some unexpected hiccups (our fault). We would definitely recommend staying there based on the impeccable service we received!

Joe, at the front desk is very helpful and accommodating. He made our stay very pleasurable. The rooms were cozy, atmosphere was friendly, and the restaurant has great food.
