AmericInn Lodge & Suites Park Rapids
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Park Rapids
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is your basic budget hotel in the same class as super 8, motel 6 etc. The property has a nice parking lot with plenty of lighting. Checkin was no problem and the front desk clerk was helpful giving directions and information. The room was clean with a very small bathroom. A/C worked great as it was in the upper 90s during our stay. The room had a small refrig which came in handy. We filled several coolers each day from the ice machine, without problem. The only downside was the "included breakfast". The coffee was super weak so we brewed our own in the room (used both reg & decaf packets) to mix with the weak lobby coffee. The food was very basic with waffle maker we did not use. All and all, for the price this is a good place to stay.

This hotel is located in the heart of Park Rapids commercial district. It's close to restaurants, stores, and banks. It's an older property with a lot of wear and tear. The grout and calking in the bathrooms is going to be moldy. The fixtures were showing their age. It appears that the main rooms had been painted and new flat panel TVs were installed, but the bathrooms were left more or less untouched. The lobby doubles as a self service breakfast area. There's not enough space for all the guest to sit. Coffee and Tea are provided all day long. Overall this hotel is typical for it's class in a rural area. However, at the high season rate of $150/night I expect the hotel to be in much better repair.

Thank you so much for your comments. We are constantly making improvements to enhance our guests experience at our property. I hope that you will have a chance to come back and check out all of the improvements we are making. New bedding packages, new artwork, lamps and furniture have all been added to our guest rooms (see photos). Our breakfast area can get busy and seem small, however we do have a hospitality room for overflow to accommodate our guests as best as possible. We hope to see you back again soon.

Had requested first floor room for three days, for bike storage. It was not available at check in, but were moved after carrying our bikes upstairs for the first night. Staff was very helpful. Second room was larger & cleaner. Pool good spot for our family on a rainy day. Good value for the price of a standard room.

i am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at our hotel with your grandchildren. I apologize that you had to move rooms during your stay as this can be inconvenient especially when moving bikes. I am working with my staff to ensure that they are entering guests special requests into the reservation notes and accommodating the guests to the best of our ability. If you have a chance to stay with us again you should consider our two-room suites which offer much more room, a fridge and microwave unit and a sofa sleeper. A great room to share with the grandchildren. We hope you will be back again soon.

We stayed for one night, a last minute trip so we didn't have reservations, they luckily still had a couple rooms left. Check in was very fast and simple. Room was cozy, quiet and very neat & clean.
I didn't eat the continental breakfast but my mom was very pleased with all the variety... she really loved the belgian waffles!!! The hot, free coffee was nice as well.
The pool and sauna where a nice bonus, both very clean. The pool has an adults only time from 10-12pm which is nice if you want a little peace & quiet.
he hotel is in a very convenient location for going to Itasca, the lakes and The Heartland trail. and everything outdoors Northwoods. We would stay here again as it is simple and convenient location and reasonably priced average hotel. Nothing negative to be said about it, nothing amazing either. It would be nice if they had a little gym and a bar.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell others about our property. We have added some nice items to our breakfast. Not only do we have the fresh waffles each morning we now offer an egg & sausage sandwich, a bacon & egg sandwich as well as other healthy options such as hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese and yogurt. While the hotel does not offer a gym onsite we do have free passes for Park Rapids Fitness Center which is located just minutes from the hotel. In that same area are some great Restaurants & Bars. We hope you can experience them during your next visit to Park Rapids.

Stayed for two nights. Could not get a room for only one night over the 4th of July weekend. This brand is quite new, and so most units are up-to-date and in good shape. This is a two-story (with suites on the second floor) unit, but lacks an elevator! We had a unit on the first floor with two queen beds. We found a large broken fingernail in one of the beds, along with some hair! The night clerk changed the sheets and blanket when we called it to her attention. The cleaning of the bathroom left much to be desired as well. The complimentary breakfast was composed of 'cold' food. No waffles or other hot items.

I apologize that our housekeeping did not meet your expectations. I have shared this information with our head housekeeper and cleaning staff and have taken some additional steps to ensure the rooms are being inspected before being rented to guests. We have added the fresh waffles to our breakfast as well as breakfast sandwiches.We hope you will have another chance to stay with us and give us an opportunity to exceed your expectations.

We had planned a 4 night stay but left after 3 nights. It's a typical Americinn - we had a suite so we'd have a refrigerator and microwave. The hotel is on the edge of town with no patio or outside seating area to relax and read a book. The daily maid service didn't happen so we spoke with the Manager and she was very accomodating in getting it resolved for the balance of our stay,.
This would be a good hotel to stay at for 1 or 2 nights at the most.

Room Tip: We were on the second level - would of liked one on the main floor as that is where the ice machine...

This hotel was very clean but very basic. The staff was friendly and helpful. I cannot judge the free continental breakfast because we ate at the Great Northern cafe, which is why we stayed in Park Rapids. Park Rapids also has cute shops downtown.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you need one stay on the ground floor.
