“Convenient and worth the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is a lovely hotel and convention center in Fergus Falls. The reception was very nice and accommodating last minute room changes. We reserved two rooms, one convenient to pool and the other with outside view as I do not care for chlorine smell from pool. The pool area is quite nice. We were upgraded to a mini suite which was very large and comfortable with separate living room area with flat screen. The bedroom area was quite large with King bed and flat screen. The third area contained a desk and refrigerator and dressing area. The fourth area was the large bathroom. Very spacious accomodations and perfect for our three day stay. Only negative was the noisy air conditioner in both rooms. The restaurant had a very nice menu but since we were visiting relatives in area, did not visit. The complimentary continental breakfast was adequate and the fresh berries and yougurt were a nice touch to the usual B/W fare.

Room Tip: Get pool side rooms only if the chlorine smell does not bother you. I prefer outside rooms. Pool roo...

On our way from Montana to Minesota, this was just a convenient stop. The hotel that we preferred was completely booked, so this was the 2nd option.
The convention center is well indicated, but it was difficult to see that the entrance of the hotel was at the same location (we were not the only ones that drove to the wrong side of the building).
There was only 1 lady at the front desk and at that time of the day, that was not enough to keep up with everybody that wanted to check in.
Rooms were ok. Not really a place you want to spend more time than needed.

Driving back from Yellowstone and we needed to stop over for one night and I was able to find this place on Priceline and got a rat of $99 per room and I needed two rooms. I asked for nonsmoking and did not care about pool view or no pool view. The first room was quite nice with a newer flat screen and quite large for a room of this size but that was nice. The second room however reeked of smoke so I called the front desk and asked to exchange the room. The kind woman at the front desk was glad to assist me and had no problem changing our room. The second one that she gave us was fine. The rooms were clean the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were also clean and everything worked. The breakfast is minimal but there are eggs and toaster waffles. I did not have a chance to take a dip into the pool however it did look very nice and was quite large and it was attached to the hot tub which also looked very nice. Overall this was a nice stay for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for Pool view

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a convention. The room was clean and quiet. We had been asked at the time of reservation if we wished a pool side room and we had stated no, yet we were by the pool so had no window to the outside. I did not care for that and I felt quite claustrophobic as I had to keep the curtains closed. The toilet seemed in danger of flowing over as it filled to the top and then drained very slowly. The toilet was very close to the tub with the taps on the same end as the toilet which made it very difficult to stick your head under the tap and wash your hair. It would be better if the taps were on the other side or if there was more than 6 inches between the toilet and the tub. Breakfast was good. Internet was slow and spotty quite frequently. The restaurant menu was not exciting and had we not paid for the meals as part of the conference I would have ate elsewhere. Our catered food was not good! Quite disappointing. A number of people mentioned the same. I'm glad I didn't have to pay the full price as I think $120 to $140 a night is quite high and at that price would expect more. It was very quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our facility. We value your compliments as well as critiques. I am disappointed to hear of the dissatisfaction with our conference meals. Our chef, with his team, works very diligently to provide the best quality of food for every group we host. I am sorry that this wasn't the case here. I truly hope you have a chance to stay with us in the future whether it be business or pleasure.

Sincerely,
Tom Larson G.M.

We used the meeting facilities at The Falls Inn & Suites for a two day workshop. The inn rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast. The meeting rooms were great and the meals provided for our participants were excellent. The staff members were very helpful and friendly. We had a very positive experience and will certainly use this facility in the future!

This is a nice hotel with your standard breakfast -- juice, coffee, rolls, waffles, eggs, cereal, etc.
It's comfortable with a very friendly staff. Upgraded their TV's and now have large flat screens. Nice pool with small jacuzzi. Higher rates in the summer months.

We were happy with this hotel, but would have been happier if the rate had been $10 or $15 lower. With tax the AARP rate was over $100. A nice hotel-clean room, large flat screen TV, fan worked in the bathroom, tub drained, fluffy towels, comfotable bed and friendly staff. The wall mounted heater/AC was loud, however, so for a light sleeper in might be bothersome. We enjoyed the Minnesota shaped pool (the adjoining hot tub is pretty neat--think north shore). For free hotel fare, we thought the breakfast was pretty decent--ham and eggs for me, healthy stuff for my wife.
