We stayed for the weekend for a local baseball tournament. It perfectly suited our needs for the weekend. The pool was clean and a nice place to hang out - and there were some good gathering spots for the parents to unwind. The breakfast, however, was not one to write home about. We ended up going out to another restaurant... More

We really like the Bigwood Event Center and Hotel, the rooms are very clean and everything works, every time. We intend to book again in 3 months time, as my mom lives here, so we come often to visit. The only complaint I have is that the fitness center is rarely open. This has been explained to me, so now... More

The property is dependable, clean and comfortable. They are going through a brand change though so a little tough to find online. I hear there are rooms available though and was encouraged to call directly 218-793-2211.

While visiting my sons future in-laws and extended family we stayed at the Best Western. The hotel met our needs of comfort, cleanliness and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting in the Fergus Falls area.

My son made reservations for two non smoking rooms.The family enjoyed the pool and had a quiet night's sleep. I question why the two non smoking rooms we had were at the farthest ends of the hotel from each other? Other than that, a nice place to stay.

Fergus Falls in an undiscovered community in an unappreciated part of Minnesota. The town is surrounded by beautiful farm countryside with lakes nearby. This hotel is clean, modern, and staffed with great people.
