The hallway had furniture lining the walls and a cabinet had some duct tape lining the length if one side but we sincerely enjoyed our stay. It was a straight shot to the casino and was across the street from Canterbury park. Our room had a kitchenette which was well stocked. Although dish soap and paper towels would have been... More

Like the racetrack near by, it can be a gamble whether you have a reservation here - or not. Don't worry the weather outside or the middle of the night, just because you have a confirmation number (22734) doesn't mean they have a room for you. Beware and have a backup plan! I didn't and at midnight in a snowstorm... More

I stayed here for three nights (weeknights), and although I chose it mainly for the low price, I was surprised and satisfied. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable (firm, mattress seemed new), and I was upgraded to a very large room. Everything in the room worked - no issues. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just... More

You get what you pay for. The room was quite large and included a kitchenette and king sized bed. The room and facility in general was pretty smelly and unorganized. We stayed here because it is within walking distance (15 minute walk) to Cantebury Park.

Coming from a family that has owned motels/hotels for decades, I'm kind of a stickler on what a room should have, how clean it should be, etc. Reading the previous reviews, I was hesitant to stay here but I have absolutely no complaints. There were 3 of us staying in 1 room with 2 queen double beds. The room was... More

All the reviews I saw for this place we're bad, but I had a good experience. Room was clean, had a little kitchenette, and a couch. All for a nice price. I would stay again. Very convenient to restaurant and Mystic Lake Casino.

We wanted a hotel for after the Canterbury Park races on Saturday night. The hotel was only $99, and we found out why. We questioned the hotel upon registration: mail lying on the counter, the chair behind the desk had no back and the seat was split. The lobby was wet everywhere. We made sure we had a non-smoking room.... More

I stay here currently but won't for long. Owners complain how they always need their Money for the week but they Dont get paid on time simply because they always procrastinate on fixing things. The WiFi is slow and good as garbage, the cable sucks and they make your key good for a day when you give them money for... More

We've been quite a few Hotels and this was the worst. When you walk into the main lobby, there was a old mattress on the floor under the staircase and under that was who knows what. There was mattresses and other trash items lining the walls on the second floor. The bed linen smelt like vomit! WAlls are paper thin... More
