So, made a reservation several weeks ago. Showed up after a 15 Hour drive, and they did not have the reservation. That's not terrible, because the gentleman was willing to rent me the last room available. Unfortunately, after viewing the room, I decide to move on. Took my chances, driving to International Falls, to secure a room. The rooms here...

I was traveling during the very busy July tourist season, and the next most reasonably priced hotels I could find even remotely close to this area were about twice as expensive. That is the main reason I'm giving this hotel four stars. It's not a perfect place by any means, but the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the...

I was in Virginia MN for the annual Pepsi Challenge Cross Country Ski Race and just needed a bed on a Friday night. I paid less than $60 for a clean room and a comfortable bed, TV, a sink and a small bathroom with a full bath. My only criticism is that the heater in the room is basically a...

I thought I would be okay as the rate was $80 a night when everyone was over$100. The website said that there was continental breakfast and when I got there the person said that they haven't had that in three years. I told him it was on his site still which I showed him. My biggest issue is that the...

First and foremost, the photos they provide online look nothing like this hotel in person. One could say, 'that's what you get for booking online', but I've booked the majority of my hotels online for the last 10-14 years and have Never been deceived so badly! At Least 4 hard drug users live here on a monthly level. One of...

Greeted by a rather unfriendly office manager that was in pajamas and seemed to be drunk at 8 pm at night. Had several rooms booked. All were very old and tired furnishings - felt like a step back in time. They all smelled weird. Upstairs was supposed to be non-smoking, but the room next to us were smokers and kept...

Booked the room thru motels.com and they said there was a $5 booking fee and if we didn't like the room the credit card would not be charged for the room. We got to the motel and the place is a dive, we walked in and first words were we want to cancel. He wouldn't refund are money sense the...
