“Nice Stay!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the King Spa Suite for our anniversary. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff. The décor of the hotel is warm and cozy. They had warm washcloths scented of lemongrass in a warmer-sounds strange, but they were really great! Our room was very clean and comfortable.

Pros: The hotel is very quiet-a bonus for us! The room was very clean and cozy. The onsite bar was quant and offered items at a reasonable price-it tasted great. The view of the lake is beautiful. I enjoyed the toiletry items offered in the room. We were able to get extra perks through a hotel package deal the lodge offered.

Cons: The whirlpool in room tub was on the small side. Taller/larger guests may have a tough time comfortably enjoying. I would recommend guests get the cheaper room and just use the hot tub by the pool. The "aroma therapy" is just a pad you stuff in a hole of the tub-not what I was expecting. When the trains pass, you can feel them-we weren't bothered by this though. The hotel doesn't have a sit down restaurant per say-rather a lobby lounge that offers a small selection of food. The price was a bit steep for the room-next time we will skip the spa suite.

We will defiantly be back -the hotel was clean, comfortable, relaxing and quiet! Staff were pleasant and seemed eager to make our stay a success!

Everything was great, from the staff to the room to the breakfast. It is apparent that they took great pains to put high quality amenities in the rooms. Bathroom has large glassed shower! Would highly recommend. Also, beautiful views of the lake.

My sisters and I truly enjoyed the wine tasting and gourmet meal. We were also impressed with view from the room! All rooms facing the lake is a perfect plan. Having our own balcony was terrific and the decor was gorgeous. The "lobby" is where we sat on the comfortable couch in front of the fireplace ,over looking the lake and we just chatted away while the piano player played. Never had a need to leave the hotel!

I am a local DL resident. I had an amazing spa visit today. I have traveled the world, and I found the spa to be one of the nicest. Many luxuries in their spa experience are included in the cost of your treatment. I had an amazing hot stone massage from Sue. The staff was super attentive and friendly. Water was provided before and after the treatment as well as free use of a steam shower before or after your treatment, gorgeous terry robes and towels, spa shoes, and a fully appointed changing room. Excellent luxury in little Detroit Lakes.

great hotel, excellent service. wonderful view. The family suite was an excellent value, and provided great space for small children. The pool was great for young children, it was 5 feet at the deepest end. The library was a good place to find games, and the lounge area was very appealing.

Very impressed by this Best Western. Exceptionally clean, comfortable beds, love the shower vs tub shower. When we checked out the owner was on site overseeing breakfast service and front counter activity. Her interest shows in the quality of the facility. As a fellow independent business owner, my compliments, job well done

We first discovered this hotel after unfortunate circumstances (the passing of our dear friend's father, Dick Carr) found us taking a road trip to DL. It wound up being a wonderful little getaway! We frequently take trips to Fargo and this is the perfect place to stay for some relaxation after a crazy weekend with our Fargo friends! Watching the sun set over the lake is an absolute treat. The last time we stayed it was with my parents and they were immediately in love. My dad is very much a homebody and even he was overwhelmed by how beautiful our rooms and the view were. I look forward to coming back!
