The Best Western Plus and Willmar Conference Center in Willmar, MN are two of the best facilities my group has ever used for our annual conference. The hotel location is very convenient to the conference area. The staff is very flexible and accommodating. They were extremely attentive to our needs. Our group normally chooses a different location annually but we... More

I was just there for a convention and enjoyed the stay. The room was comfortable and was able to get around well. The food was pretty good that we had. The only minus I noticed was very chaotic atmosphere in the attached bar and grill when I checked in and needed to grab some food quick.

The hotel experience was good but the attached restaurant experience was not. Losing a reservation for 12 for someone who is staying at their attached hotel is not acceptable. Eventually we were all seated but waiting with children under 2 years old got to be a hassle for them and us. The staff seemed to be very rushed and disorganized... More

Had a family gathering in one of the convention rooms. Well attended by the staff. Good food on the buffet and they kept it full. Hotel room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Went to Ruffs after. I love that place!

Our family had a large reunion this summer at this hotel. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Good breakfast. Good pool facilities for all the kids. Just wish there was a place to eat somewhere in the vicinity of the pool. Otherwise, very clean rooms. Modern, updated hotel. Nice sports bar n local restaurants nearby. Highly recommended for anyone!

Upon entering the lobby, you could see this motel is well kept! Very nice and updated. I kind of call these motels old school with the rooms surrounding a big pool area in the middle.

Thank you for the wonderful review and feedback! Great recommendation on the deflector as we find ourselves constantly putting them back on the air conditioners as some guests like to remove them for the same reason you mentioned. It sounds like your room may have had the deflector on it, which does tend to push the air across that bed... More
