We stayed here during Hockey Day Minnesota! Nice large rooms and even the continental breakfast was excellent with eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, etc... Really impressed and definitely plan to stay again but next time it will be a girls trip to do some shopping at the outlets.

We look forward to you visiting again. Be sure to call or check online for our shopping package if you are planning to hit the outlet mall for some serious shopping with the girls!

The breakfast was great. Not just rolls and waffles. They offered scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuts and gravy. We also really appreciated the large, clean pool and hot tub area. It was minus 10 degrees outside and the hot tub was a welcome oasis.

Room Tip: Standard rooms do not include a mini fridge or microwave.

KayCee1011,

Thank you for sharing about your recent stay. It is great that you found a good variety of items on the Be Our Guest breakfast menu. We are proud to offer substantial choices, so you can start your day off right without having to leave the building.

The warm room that houses the indoor pool and whirlpool is one of my favorite places in the hotel, especially when the temperature outside is as brutal as it has been lately. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

Sincerely,
Cheri Singleton
Sales Manager

Enjoyed our stay here. Room was clean, midnight pool hours for adults were great, and breakfast was comprehensive (eggs, sausage, cereal, breads, etc.). I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Elk River.

Stayed here after a minor surgery done in area and we were given a room on quiet end of building and it was perfect. Room was clean and supplied as needed. Check in and out was pleasant and quick as we were there to rest. Book selection in front was great and we also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast that was included. We have no complaints for this property. We did not encounter any issues or anything else to speak negatively about-great staff and stay and we will return when in area to stay.

This is the 2nd time we stayed here for a family event. The manager was extremely helpful is discounting the room rate for our events. The 'hot' breakfast is fantastic. Also, both the environment & the excellent attitude/service from the staff make it feel very upscale...but at a reasonable rate.

Room Tip: 2-room suites are very roomy for family accomodations

I was surprised, the motel has been recently updated. Everything looks fresh and clean. The staff was nice and attentive. My only criticism is that the free breakfast is mediocre at best. Just a lot of carbs and little else. But, overall good experience and I would definitely stay there again.
