“Ideal Location to Downtown Nisswa”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I was pleasantly surprised to find the Nisswa Motel to be very clean, quiet and comfortable during a weekend trip to visit friends and family. The owners are very friendly and more than helpful. I found the location to be perfect for easy walking access to downtown Nisswa where there are plenty of small shops and restaurants to choose from. It is also in close proximity to the the city park and Paul Bunyun Trail. I'm looking forward to staying at the Nisswa Motel the next time I'm in Nisswa.

We just got back from a winter weekend in Nisswa and could not be more pleased with our experience! I am very familiar with the area, but had yet to stay in a location downtown. What a world of difference it made! We were able to walk everywhere we went which just added to the whole experience. Whether it was taking a morning stroll for coffee and scones or an evening walk with our skates to the local rink, everything was right there.
As far as the room itself, impeccable. The room was in perfect condition and much larger than I anticipated. I loved the unexpected features like the freezer/fridge and microwave. If we had planned on eating in, it would have made it very easy to do so.
As far as the new owners, they could not have been more hospitable. Such a sweet couple that checked in on several occasions to make sure we had everything we needed and were pleased with our accommodations. They created such a warm environment and were a perfect example of what a family business should exemplify.
I look forward to the next time we can enjoy a perfect weekend away at the Nisswa Motel!

We found the Nisswa Motel while visiting the Brainerd area for a wedding. The rooms are super clean, the beds are very comfortable and the building is built so well that once you close the door you can't hear the neighboring rooms or vehicle traffic. We've stayed here 3 times now, and have told everyone we know about it. There are new owners now and they are very down to earth and personal!
If you're looking for a nice, clean quiet getaway in the Brainerd Lakes area, this is definitely the place...
I can guarantee you will not be dissapointed!

We came into town for last minute snowmobile trip. Normally I tend to stay away from motels but this place was great. Very friendly staff/owners, clean, roomy and great location. It's a block away from entire downtown Nisswa with bunch of shops, etc and the Paul Bunyan trail.

I'd forgotten how nice it is to have direct access to your room and not have to drag your gear thru lobby, ride elevator etc. etc.

My husband and I stayed here in November 2013 after our performance for the Grassroots Concert Series. The room was impeccably clean & comfortable. As a touring musician I can assure you that I have stayed in some rat holes and this certainly wasn't one of them! Also loved the retro coffee cups - no styrofoam (thank you!). Will certainly stay here again next time we pass through Nisswa.

Very personable service, very spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Great value..around 50.00 with my AAA discount. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, lots of shopping. Just a straightforward place to stay. Highly recommended!

Stayed at the Nisswa Motel while in the area for a wedding. It was a very pleasant stay.

This place has no delusions about being a luxury hotel, but it was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a double-queen-bed room, and the room was spacious and spotless. The room includes a TV with cable and a DVD player; there is also free wi-fi. There is a small fridge and a coffeemaker in the room and a two-chair dining table for work or eating.

The owner and manager, Russ King, was friendly and welcoming. The other hotel staff I interacted with were also kind and accommodating.

The hotel is located just round the corner from the main shopping street of Nisswa, Minn., so there are a couple coffee houses, a pizza place and a really good place for breakfast just a short walk from the hotel. The Paul Bunyan State Bike Trail runs parallel to the shopping street.

We are very glad we stayed here and would gladly stay here again if in the area.

Note: Although tap water throughout Minnesota is generally safe to drink, the well-sourced water in Nisswa (like many places in greater Minnesota) has a slightly eggy smell that some people may find unpleasant. This water is certainly fine for brushing teeth, showering, shaving -- even for making coffee or tea -- but for drinking water, you may prefer bottled water.
