My two friends and I stayed here because all the rooms at the Casino were booked. From a distance, this Inn already looked like the kind of place that people get murdered in movies. As we pulled up by the lobby door, we noticed that the word "open" was written on the sign in red marker, which was not doing anything to improve crappy first impression. We went inside and it smelled super weird, the floors felt hallow and it was dimly lit.
At first, we thought it was kind of funny that we were staying in room 13 in this shifty motel. The joke lost it's humor when our room turned out to more than live up to it's superstitious moniker. In the middle of a Minnesotan winter, the thermostat in our room DIDN'T WORK. We freezed our butts off the entire night. The room was also poorly lit and creepy as well.
The layout for breakfast was also janky and pathetic. When we got out there there was a quarter full container of cheerios and one mini muffin. There didn't appear to be any other beverage options besides coffee. We went out to breakfast at Tobies instead and then got out of room 13 as fast as possible.
