We arrived in the early morning hours but were allowed to sleep in beyond check out. The workers were very polite and friendly. The hotel was immaculate and despite being an older establishment in need of modernization and upgrading, it was quite clean. To the owner, increase the wages for your employees... you want to keep the good ones.

Front desk was friendly, and polite and courteous. Room was on the 2nd floor, no elevator. The room was clean, but the walls were paper thin. We could hear the 2 guys in the next room talking, like they were in same room until 11:00 PM. Breakfast was nothing special, but you could fine something you could get by with.

We were visiting family in the area but needed our own place to escape to. Kids appreciated the great WiFi and I the clean room and shower! Nothing exciting for breakfast but we had other plans for that. The fridge in the room was clean and cool.

Front desk was friendly and helpful, room was decent-sized and clean and it has a small fridge/freezer and a microwave. Shower had great water pressure and water heated quickly. Older building. There's a field/large lawn behind the hotel that families with younger children could play in - some were throwing frisbees once while we visited. As others have said, breakfast... More

Everything I wanted for a business trip: Clean, quiet, safe, and cheap. Receptionist was right on top of everything, and accurate with her directions to nearby places I needed to go. Don't count on the complimentary continental breakfast being more than hot coffee and cheap cereal - Kix, Trix, CocoaPuffs. Hey - you are at least ten miles from any... More

This Econo Lodge is near the intersection of highways 75 and 12, just over the South Dakota line in the Minnesota town of Ortonville, a few hours west of Minneapolis. The property must be at least a decade old, but is reasonably well maintained and competitively priced. Our room was very large, with a queen bed, recliner, work/dining table, and... More

Plenty of room and clean. I have stayed in places just as nice for less money. I think it was a little pricey for the location. Our room was at the top of the stairs and I was pleasantly surprised we didn't hear more noise.
