We were remodeling our home and needed a reasonable rate for 2 weeks. We were very happy with the cleanliness and friendly staff who respect privacy but available 24 hours should you need it. We rented a room with full size fridge and stovetop. First week of August was very hot and the a/c worked great. I highly recommend if... More

I stayed here for a cheap place to crash before going to the cities. It was well worth the money. It's not the ritz Carlton but for a clean place to sleep it worked great. The rooms were clean and had a cool vintage look to the place. The beds were great! The only complantes I have was it was... More

This was a last minute trip. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a room that I would occupy for less than 8 hours, and my choices were VERY limited. So here's the Hitching Post, and it has a couple reviews that make it look OK, so I take a chance. I should have known when I... More

I recently visited the Hitching Post Motel located in Forest Lake, MN. I believe that it is currently under new management. The grounds were clean and well maintained, our room was rustic and clean. The motel is located slightly out of the city, it was quiet and very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay very much!

One of the hardest things about traveling with dogs is finding a hotel that will accommodate; especially without breaking the bank. The Hitching Post is a wonderful place to stay. No the rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean and spacious. They have a mini-fridge and the price cannot be beat. The entire hotel has a comfy rustic, camp feel.... More

I just spent a very comfortable night at the Hitching Post Motel. The motel has been recently refurbished and I enjoyed a comfortable bed with a hot shower for only $63.00 including tax. It is well situated, close to a lake and not far from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Mark the manager was both helpful and friendly. The motel reminded me of... More

I was in town for two nights (without my family) and simply needed a place to stay. The Hitching Post was perfect. Apparently, there is a new manager and they weren't familiar with the online reservation system. There was no record of my online reservation, but I was fortunate in that they had a room available for me. I guess... More

comfortable, clean, inexpensive, accommodating.... what else could you want? The gal at the desk was terrific. She went out of her way to make our brief stay memorable. They also take dogs--a bonus.
