“Just on the edge of Deer River”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed at this hotel since we needed somewhere in the Deer River area. The price was reasonable, however, there were not any "extras". Very basic, but clean enough. Pool went to 5' deep and no one else was using it when my kids and I were there. So certainly not crowded. I've seen much better continental breakfasts, but appreciated having something for the kids to eat.

Room Tip: No elevator. Keep in mind if you need one.

This roadside hotel has curb appeal but is lacking on several counts.
- Check In Fast and Accurate
- Room was clean
- Room equipped with Refrigerator, 4-Cup Coffee Maker, Micro-Wave, 27" Old Tube Style T.V.
- HVAC worked well with continuous fan mode for white noise
- Older bedding soft with very little support
- Free Internet (1.3 Megs)
- Thin Walls (No noise reduction)
- No iron or board (they will bring you one, if needed)
- Water pressure adequate with plenty of hot water
- Nearby Train with horn blasts during the middle of the night
- Missed my room for housekeeping during my stay even though I left the door card out clearly stating maid service

This hotel is in need of a interior facelift and some renovation. Definitely showing some wear and tear. Outside curb appeal is good.

The eatery next door is excellent and with a wide variety of food selections.

Safe Travels!

Our memories of staying here brought us back but sadly it has gone downhill. Blame the economy or whatever. It isn't what it was. Wifi doesn't work at East end of building but there is a wired option for one PC, iPhone or iPad's dead. Clothes dryer didn't work and didn't find out until we washed a load of clothes. Even the resturant next door, was great, not anymore. The pool is stained brown and green. This place has potential but in need of some TLC. Even the beds are worn out. It is sad to see what this fond memory has become.

Room Tip: If you need WiFi you must be near the lobby. You probably won't want to swih here eiter.

Clean, friendly staff, excellent value. Adjacent restruarant (sp) and bar excellent. Only one draw back: on-site computer is a nearly dead turtle.
