This place is very good. Clean, pleasant, nice place to relax. We enjoy staying here on the New London New Brighton Antique Car Run. The owners and workers are very pleasant. Rooms are up to date and clean. All facilities are modern.

This property was an overnight stop on a long drive from our home in SW Iowa to Northern Minnesota. We were familiar with the town and the hotel but had never stayed here before. The front desk staff was helpful and the room was priced fairly despite the 4th of July holiday timing. We were able to walk across the... More

This is one of our favorite escape places. Clean reasonable priced hotel close to everything. Third visit to this hotel. Overlooking beautiful green lake. We will be back again. Small breakfast selection but a little cafe a few blocks away.

This hotel is nothing fancy but it gets the job done. The room was clean, the beds were comfy, and the rates were not bad at all. Breakfast was nothing special but it was free. Would come back if needed.

I spent 9 weeks straight in this hotel starting in May. I can tell you that the rooms are the cleanest I've ever stayed in. The hotel has recently been remodeled. The beds are new and are super comfortable. The swimming pool and hottub are kept extremely clean. There was not one negative thing that I could ever say about... More

If I could describe this hotel in one word, it would be "tired". When I arrived at 8:45PM, no one was at the front desk, but there is a phone that says dial "0" for assistance. Small town charm? Sure, why not? I entered the lobby on a total of three separate occasions and there was never a staff member... More

We stayed at the Northern Inn on a Saturday night following a family birthday party/ family gathering in Spicer. The NI is not fancy or high end, but was clean, had a nice pool area and was close to Green Lake and "downtown" Spicer. Our room was along the pool area and provided great access to the pool for the... More

It was a 4 night stay for two couples, each having a "suite". Our rooms were large and comfortable. The motel is not glamorous, but clean and the couple who own it were very helpful and showed attention to "good service". When we return to the area, we will definitely stay there again.

This hotel feels a lot like a Super 8 which in my opinion is not necessarily a bad thing. It was clean, the room was large and convienently located to downtown. While I didn't use it the pool seemed nice. The only thing I would point out is if you are looking for a quite room request one away from... More

We have used this hotel over the last 5 visits, one each year, during my mothers November birthday in New London. Each year they have improved the hotel. This year the owners have added new furniture and more improvements in the food area. The price may be a little high for this area but we will definitely stay again. Nice... More
