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 Very out of date.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.

Popcorn, cobwebs and dirt on the floor. The bottom sheet on the bed did not even cover the mattress. Aaron refused to refund our rooms as we just could not stay there. Did not even feel comfortable walking on the carpet without shoes. We are now in a different hotel for $10 more and the difference is huge.

The Wi-Fi is great! So is the TV channel line-up.. Bathroom had crud behind the toilet. Beds need new mattresses extremely soft, even for 1 person... Shower had amazing water pressure..--a gal could actually rinse her hair easily instead of getting dribbles to try to rinse. No staff were anywhere tobe seen when I had a question.. plastic room keys... More
