I stayed at the Guardian Inn for a wedding. Front desk staff were helpful and polite. I require that hotels be clean and safe, and this one scored on both points. I would stay there again if I needed a Windom hotel.

I would have given this motel a five except for the maid service. We stayed here for 3 nights and did not get room cleaning because they stopped before we were ready to leave the room and didn't come back after we left!! The front desk people were exceptional and so helpful. The room was clean and comfortable on arrival.... More

We stopped here when we had car trouble. What a treat. The staff even helped us find someone to repair our car. The motel room was clean and the bathroom was huge. But the most interesting thing is that every room has a private garage. Anyone traveling with a car packed with things you don't want to unpack will love... More

1 month there, winter 2005, pickup in MY heated garage (zoom in google maps) :D Very clean. Hard to find better. I tried... all over the USA, Ontario and Québec... yep... best motel and the price leaves me with a smile.

If you need a place to stay in Windom, this is it. Really. Location, location, location - be happy you don't have to stay 30 minutes away and drive into Windom to visit your family or go to your event, or whatever brings you to Windom. You will need to overlook the dingy beadspreads, stained carpets, beds that are still... More

For not having much for competition, this hotel was making the effort to be hospitable. Everything you'd expect, TV, microwave, refrigerator, coffee & coffee maker, wi-fi. Very clean and private, no complaints. I loved the fact that I had a garage attached directly to my room! They do offer a breakfast, however I didn't get to try it. All in... More

Its always a challenge to stay in a small town hotel, but this one is trying hard to meet some basic, important traveler needs, and I suspect it attracts a loyal group of repeat clients. Although I stayed in the summertime, the private garage option would be quite appealing on a cold Minnesota winter's night! There aren't a lot of... More

We had a double wedding with many out of town guests coming so we visited this facility a month ahead and negotiated a rate of $75 per room per night with who we were told was the manager. Upon departure a rate of $91 was charged. We tried to get the agreed upon rate with no success.

We have been staying at the Guardian Inn for a couple weeks. Maybe because it's the best in the area of little competition or what I haven't figured out. Beds are okay, pillows better bring your own. The morning snack is lacking everything but breads, coffee and orange juice. There is nothing else like a pool, work out room or... More

Hubby and I stayed in their whirlpool room for a one night getaway. The room was clean, bed comfortable. The room was large and it was really nice to park in the attached garage. We didn't have to unload everything from the car, and could run out in whatever we had on to get items that we needed. Whirlpool was... More
