The place was fully booked and the manager arranged to get us a room in last minute and worked out with another guest on a cancellation this weekend. The room was also very clean. WiFi was nice. Breakfast was basic, but worked out great for our stay.

They double charged for a night and then refunded only a portion the Travelocity booking and kept the second booking of 71.00, obviously so they came out with the most money...CROOKS! The service was horrible, no one around, lousy TV and rooms. Breakfast is a joke. Do yourself a favor and stay anywhere but this place.

A girls weekend getaway included a two-night stay at Waconia Inn & Suites. More often than not, no-one was in the main office. A phone was provided to call for assistance. Getting our keys to work in the door was a challenge. The smoke alarm was lying on the table by the t.v., minus the batteries. The light next to... More

So it took, no exaggeration, 20 tries to get into the room with the card. The smoke detector was laying on the dresser without a battery, the plugs were so worn my charger wouldn't even stay plugged in, and the light and outlet by the bed had no power. The only plus was the super nice lady at the front... More

To begin with the toilet wasn't totally clean. So I used soap and water and a face cloth to clean it so I felt comfortable using it. Next, the safety chain latch was broken. There was no way to latch it ! Would have been easy for the property manager to walk to the next property where there was a... More

The last time we stayed in Waconia was 3 years ago. At that time, we’d booked this hotel because the only other one was full and we were pleasantly surprised that this was friendly and while old and a bit worn, well managed and very sufficient for our needs. Sadly, this isn’t true anymore. The place looked clean to the... More

It was one thing after another. The continental breakfast was a cold bagle and the cable tv was not cable tv. No ice machines had to find someone at the front desk(who was never there) to give you ice. Very out of date. We travel all the time, all over and this was one of the worst.

Minnesota usually has the higher rates for housing in the central states where I work. After attempting to find housing under $100 per night, I was very glad to call this hotel and get a room for under $80 per night. I found the bed, TV, refrigerator, and other items in the rooms to be almost new in appearance. The... More

Due to a scheduling issue, I had a reservation I could not meet. The staff at the Hotel worked to ensure proper handling of this issue and was able to help me out big time. This was greatly appreciated. Thank You!

The property was small, not fancy, but clean and accomodating . Aaron was very helpful with our travel arrangements. It is located next door to a very good restaurant plus the continental breakfast was nice.
