“Cigarette smoke, curry and diesel.”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

If these olfactory sensations are your idea of a good time book this place. Their website doesn't quite tell the story. The Inn is part of a truck stop. Once I checked in at 8:00 PM and opened the curtains it looked like a Mack Truck, Peterbuilt rally in the lot behind the Inn.
I hopped in the car to grab dinner at a local pub and asked the bartender what a desperate traveler should do. She set me up at a local B & B. Once that arrangement was sealed I drove back and checked out without hesitation.

Since we were truly only going to sleep at the hotel/motel, I didn't want to pay a lot. The front desk person was friendly and our room was very clean. It was a quiet hotel which allowed us a good night's sleep. The free breakfast was very simple, but the coffee was hot and there was instant oatmeal, so we were satisfied. After checking out, it was an easy jaunt to Interstate 35.

I booked six rooms here while traveling with a group by motorcycle, my heart dropped upon arrival realizing I booked this location when I thought I was taking the group to the Zumbrota location that I stayed at a year ago with a positive experience.

I stayed positive and hoped for the best even though from the exterior this place looks pretty run down. Check in was handled fairly quickly although several of our group had to return to the desk after check in as their keys didn't work. Once in the room I was actually fairly pleased as it was clean and relatively modern so I breathed a sigh of relief. The common areas of the hotel are quite run down and appear to see little maintenance.

Over dinner one of the members of our group asked a few others if their smoke detectors were normal in their rooms and then explained his was completely covered with duct tape. Coincidentally at 2:30 in the morning we were awakened by the fire alarm going off, so I'm going to guess it's a fairly common practice for folks to tape up the smoke heads in these rooms and smoke in the non smoking rooms.

Overall even though the room was clean I'll likely look elsewhere due to the other appearances and issues.

We enjoyed our stay. This was our second experience with America's Best Value Inns. Both were excellent. Very nice and clean room that was well furnished. The rates are also quite reasonable. We would stay here again if our travels brought us out this way.

clean, accepts pets(for a nominal additional charge), qiuet, unstocked frig in room, cable tv, coffeemaker, entry through lobby(made me feel safer), nice area behind the parking lot for walking the dog, great directions to the faribault cheese company and they accept aarp and aaa discounts. i'll stay there next year when i go to northern wisc. i wasn't looking for the ritz, but i got the very cheap equivalent. and the smell others complained about? i love the smells of indian cuisine, so so this wasp grandmother thought it smelled great.
