Should have been told

We were looking for a reasonable hotel with a pool and hot tub for a quick night getaway without baby, before a medical test the next morning. At check-in we were told the pool and hot tub were being resurfaced. We never would have booked if we had known the pool would be closed. So then we settled for watching college hockey in our room, but the game didn't come in on our TV so we had to relocate rooms. On the positive, the staff Brenda was nice, but not enough to overcome my disappointment about the pool. No discount or other benefit was offered for our inconvenience.

Great location!

This hotel has a nice pool and hot tub area which was perfect to relax in after a long day of snowboarding! The room was comfortable and the late check out (12:00PM) was awesome!

comfy!!!

Great staff (!!!) and the most comfortable beds and pillows. The only complaint would be the very very thin walls.

Needs bigger beds.....

This hotel was at best average. The beds are only doubles, and it is kind of out of the way at the end of the main drag. The breakfast was hot, but it consisted of pre-processed egg patties of some sort and sausage. The have made an attempt at updating, with big tv's and such, but at it's core it is an old hotel without ols hotel charm. I can't say it is worth $20 more than the super 8 right up the road.

over priced sardine can...

The pros were the location, and cleanness, except for the weird stains on the curtains. the cons were almost 100.00 per night for a small sardine can, the room was horribly small, and the bathroom too, you can also hear everyone talking in the hall and in there rooms and the doors slamming rattled the walls. I would look for a better place next time I visit Bemidji.

Quaint, clean, but kinda noisy

This hotel put us right where we needed to be! It was just down the street from a church we were there to help. We loved its close proximity to the airport...maybe 1.5 miles away, especially since we had an early flight the day we left. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff were all friendly! They did all they could to make sure our stay was pleasant. The breakfast was good....yummy fruit, yogurt, bread, bagels, english muffins, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled egg "patty", sausage, and the yummiest belgian waffles ever! The coffee was always hot and available! The only downsides are that the walls are really "thin"! We could hear just about everything going on...perhaps it was just our one-bed room? Which brings me to the next downside....the one-bed room is SUPER SMALL!!!! My husband and I had a hard time moving around the room at the same time. I would definitely get a 2-bed room next time just for space! The bathroom was tiny and didn't offer any counter space....except for a small shelf above the toilet...which held it's own difficulties when my items would fall off the tiny counter! haha! Because of the tiny room the bed was only a double....not even a queen! So make sure you have the bed-size you want! :) Overall, I would stay there again.....just in a bigger room! ;)

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If the lake is frozen when you visit Bemidji, go for a WALK or DRIVE on it! We had a blast doing this!

Hot!

The hotel was nice and clean. The room was way too hot, even with the thermostat set at 59. It was quiet and comfortable. I'd stay there again
