Stayed here for two nights as my new home in Forest Lake was being redid. I asked for a 7:30 wake up and both days, no call. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast is so so, typical. Nice orange juice, fruit and yogurt, but whoever invented the pancake style eggs should be locked up. Pool and hot tub were not working and... More
