“Would definitely stay again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Helpful friendly staff. Clean rooms. I like that there was a refrigerator and microwave in rooms. Continental breakfast was included and was ok but could have had a little more choices. Location was close to downtown area (Detroit Lakes Mn). Good rates. Would definitely stay again.

The staff was friendly and helpful. They answered our questions about the shuttle. We loved being able to take the shuttle to we fest. The location is convenient. We enjoyed having the free breakfast included with our stay. We would love to stay here again.

Room reeked of smoke. Our stuff now smells like smoke. Gross. We didn't smoke in the room, it just reeked as if a rock band had stayed the night the before.

At least our dog could stay, but now he smells like smoke too. Also the smell ruined our own pillows we brought. Would not recommend.

Thank you for your your feedback, our guest's satisfaction is very important to us and we are sorry we did not meet that during your stay. We are very excited that our hotel has become a 100% non smoking facility as of June, and appreciate our guests' patience while we are in the process of renovating our rooms. Our apologies that we were full that weekend and unable to accommodate a room change to a more satisfactory room. We hope you will consider giving us a second chance in the future as things are completely redone.

This a no_frills property but it was quiet and clean and front desk management were very helpful to accomodate our room needs on a 4th of July weekend. This is the third year in a row I have stayed at this property. Great location off of Highway 10

We enjoyed our stay at this family owned hotel. It was very clean and homey. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered was ample with french toast, waffles, cereal, yogurt,danish rolls,and etc...

We stayed here on our way across country. The front staff person was most welcoming and accommodating for our needs. Had two dogs who seemed to be ecstatic over the room?? I think they were tired of our truck camper. They could use a little less air freshener, but everything very clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. They were also very pleasant about sending me something I left there.

The reservation was under a friends name. When we got there our friends weren't there so I went to the front desk to get a key. It was given to me no questions asked. Great security!

This is a pet friendly place... so guessing the carpets have accidents on them... ish.

The rooms are small and dark. The bathrooms are super small and you feel gross being in them.

The beds are small and VERY uncomfortable.

They do have free internet. They do have continental breakfast.

I immediately took a long shower when I got home!

The nightly rate was $155.00. This is absurd in the small town of Detroit Lakes. I could see if you were on the water but we were by Perkins... not near the water at all.
