I travel to this area a multiple times a year for business and keep coming back to AmericInn for a few reasons, the staff is great, clean, great value and convienent location with resturants and shopping really close. I have stayed at both hotels and I come back here because I get the room type I actully booked, it hasn't been giving to someone else because I'm a late arrival. You do not have to do a U-turn at this hotel to go down town if you go out the other driveway.

The moment we walked into the front door, we could smell stale cigarette smoke. The carpeting in the halls crawl up the walls like runners. These haven't been cleaned in ages.
The room was acceptionally clean, although the furniture was peeling apart. Bathroom and vanity area were very cramped.
Pool area was in very bad shape. Heat registers were very rusted and the walls had terrible water damage, especially by the windows.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious and bed are comfortable. Honestly a good stay. I have stayed in the top 2 motel/hotel in Forest lake and to me the AmericInn falls behind the other for 2 reasons. Firstly AmericInn has no elevator. Second there commitment to stay green, their paper products are very much lacking. I expect a tissue to hold my sneeze, bathroom tissue not to leave half the paper in what I am wiping.
To management, there is a time to think green and to accommodate your guest. Get products that do the job, give up the "Green" then except for the elevator you, might be 1st or 2nd best depending on the guest.
Personally I enjoyed my stay but If I stayed again, I would go to Wal Mart and buy me some better Paper Products.

Room Tip: Either motel/hotel In Forest Lake involves a U turn. I found out, leaving this motel, making a U tur...

the location isn't the best but the hotel is clean, I stay in the North Branch AmericInn a lot. I had Catarac surgery and my appointment the next day was at the Northwoods Optical. In fact I am staying at this hotel again (Forest Lake Location) April 30th and May 1st after my 2nd eye surgery. See you Wednesday

This hotel is right off the freeway. From the outside it looks a bit rough, but the inside is better. It is an older hotel, but still in good shape. The rooms are nice, but nothing exceptional. This seems to be the cheapest hotel in the area and that is the best thing. Breakfast was good, the location is close to a lot of things.

The hotel from the exterior seems very run down. The interior lobby area seems a bit newer. The overall lobby area seems to be fairly clean. As do the rooms, however, the bathrooms are outdated and pillows are very lumpy. The pool area seems to be clean, but the rusted out vents make you think otherwise. The breakfast in the morning has good hot coffee and a nice variety of choices. As well, the area seemed cleaned & all food seemed fresh.

We stayed in a king room. The room was very neat with a good amount of space, a nice comfortable bed, very clean and quiet, very good breakfast. Near the interstate so very easy access. The bathroom area is on the small side but adequate and clean.
