So I was here for a two day convention. This was my first and frankly the last time I will stay here. Called months ago and reserved 3 rooms, of which one was reserved as a king room. Well that did not happen got a room with two queen beds. Keys did not work in electric lock. Door would not... More

Maybe I need to lower my expectations as there aren't many options in Faribault but the Boarders Inn is very basic. Best high-light is the happy hour where you can get 2 free beers between 6pm and 8 pm.

For this price point it was a very good hotel. Very clean rooms and common areas. Plenty of towels in pool area. Only complaints is that pool area is somewhat dark at night. Also the breakfast has some off brand items i.e. yogurt. Tasted OK but watery compared to a brand like Dannen, and sausage had a funny (mushy) texture.... More

It has been years since I have stayed at a hotel this bad. Old dirty rooms. Considered buying bug spray. Poor customer service. Horrible breakfast. No wi-fi service. Old towels in the room. Old shower. Wasting water with lousy shower head. Not a very green property. Feels like going back in time about 30 years. I DO NOT recommend this... More

This was a nice hotel. Pet friendly, but clean and quiet. The staff were the best part of the stay. Very helpful and happy. The fitness center is in a different location, but we were given directions and a key for access. The breakfast was nice with several options. An enjoyable stay.

My main reason for giving Boarders Inn in Faribault an excellent rating is the staff. Every staff member that I encountered was genuinely happy to deal with me as a customer. Maybe they're faking it, but happy employees, a clean lobby, a clean room, a filling breakfast (with different hot items every day of the week) ... the whole experience... More

This property was very clean- the staff were friendly and helpful. Comfy bed- the A/C worked great. Refrigerator, ice machine, amazing breakfast... I felt very comfortable and had absolutely no complaints! Very well satisfied with the price and quality of my stay!

From the check in experience to the quality of the room/beds to the breakfast this place was a total hit and for an affordable price. We were so excited to be staying in such a beautiful hotel- and were delighted to discover that the beds were comfy, the wifi was spot on and the breakfast was tasty. Will definitely return... More

The hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Hot tub and pool was a plus. But the walls are paper thin. Our neighbor was talking on the phone most of the night. Could hear him clear as day. And then woke up by their snoring.

Though a few things were not impressive such as the after hours electronic door key in the first place and the fact that it didn't work coupled with reconstituted eggs for breakfast, they offer much more than any other place I have seen at this price point in the US such as a partnership with after hours fitness, the complimentary...
