Reviewed September 12, 2011

We booked a queen suite with a balcony on September 4 and 5. The hotel was very clean and quiet with low rates. The staff were very friendly. The hotel has easy access to Hwy 210 and 371 and a short drive to the Paul Bunyan trail. If we are ever in the area again, we would definitely stay again.

I stayed here with my wife and two small children for four nights and it was great. The cost very low and much better than my friends staying at a big resort on Gull Lake. Breakfast is good and has a nice variety of foods and they have pizzas for sale for $6 (at night). The pool was great and the hot tub superb.

We came upon this hotel accidently and decided to stay at it after a long night of driving. The lobby is very nice, almost chalet like and the rooms were large and clean. The location was convenient to both the highway and the shopping area as well as restaurants. My kids loved the pool as well.

We have an upcoming trip planned to this area and because of the several great reviews we wanted to give this place a chance. After several attempts to book with Hawthorn Suites, I was finally informed that they no longer own this property. Through further investigation, found the new owners to be Crossings by Grandstay. I will post a new report after our stay but wanted to share the information.

We had a wonderful experience at the Hawthorn. Expectations were low as we frequently are disappointed. The service was great from the start when we made the reservation. When we checked in the gal behind the desk was very friendly and gave us all the information we asked for with total professionalism. The main lobby was beautiful. Our room was very spacious, very clean and the bed comfy. It also came with a cute balcony. Wish we could have stayed longer to use the pool etc. What a deal, as they give AARP and AAA discounts plus a hot breakfast. The breakfast was I'd say better than a restaurant. Scambled eggs, great sausage links, pancakes, juice, toast, cereal coffee there and in the room. A terrific value for the money! The staff was just kept filling the pans. The parking lot was very well lite.
Wasn't crazy about the placement of the elevator. Too many blind corners. The elevator was fast, not a wait forever type.

During the Fourth of July, our family had a "Girls Night Out" at this property. Left the children and men at the cabin and headed into town. The staff was professional, rooms clean and spacious, beds comfortable, nice sauna, hot tub and pool. The breakfast was fine and the lobby had a nice ambiance and pleasant atmosphere. This was also a good value and we would stay again. I heard that this property may be changed to a Quality Inn so if you look at staying here, check out that name.

Great hotel - Clean, very roomy rooms! We traveled with a 3 year old and had a Queen with a sofa bed. The room was large with plenty of room to move around. Staff at the front desk were very pleasant and friendly. Hotel had a pool with a small kiddie pool which was great for our little one, it was all he needed. They even offer towels and have a small store on-site to buy beach balls, deodorant, etc... you can even purchas a Heggies Pizza and cook it in the pizza oven and take back to your room! winter parking was a little difficult as the guests didn't know how to appropriately space themselves and if you got in later in the night you had to figure out where to park. The morning breakfast was awesome. Pancakes, French toast, bacon or sausage, yogurt, cereal, juice... nice treat from having to "eat out" and you could bring it back to your room if you wanted or sit in the eating area.
