Good Little Getaway

When we arrived to checkin we were greated quickly. The person checking us in proceeded to tell us there weren't any many rooms left that we had booked and they put is in a very undesirable room. We then went back mind you with a 2 year old in tow to see if we could just get two queens in a room in a better location. The second person was great and the room was as well. I would stay again as the location is great and it was a good value.

Converted motel

We stayed here for a business trip - it was the overflow hotel as the others were completely booked out. The hotel itself was full as well, so we were in an exterior room. The room itself was a converted motel, so nothing special - with really dated decor. We noticed that there was a never ending troop of flies/bugs that were making their way into our room - we kept killing them, but they kept coming. Finally we figured out that there was gap under the door and had to put a couple towels up there to keep them out. Only plus was the location. The lobby seemed pretty nice, so if you have to stay here - definitely reserve a room in the main building.

Great overnight price

With the orbucks I got to stay for only 50 dollars. The room was clean but was in slight disrepair. The service was wonderful and the overall experience very good.

Needs an update

While the lobby of the hotel was very nice, when we walked outside, we found our room wasn't actually in the hotel. Our room was very outdated with the decor. It definitely needs a sprucing up. And I wished we had known our room wasn't in the hotel itself. The walking back and fourth, in formal wear, outside in a blizzard wasn't very fun.

Disorganized Front Desk

Little America is a beautiful hotel however, when we went to check in they could not find our reservation. Once they did they stated they didn't have a room but would move us to the Grand Hotel across the street. A manger was then sought for assistance who found a room in the tower at the little america. We finally got to our room after 20 minutes and it was beautiful. Perfect for our anniversary. 15 minutes later the phone rings from the front desk verifying we were in the room. Five minutes later the manger calls and explains that the room we were in was not supposed to be used because of plumbing issues. My wife had already used the shower. A new key was brought to us for another room on the same floor. We packed and moved to our new room. Nice but not as nice as the room we had just left. There was an empty wine box on top of the dressing cupboard that had not been removed. It was nice but the disorganization detracted from our stay. I hope this is not there normal operations.
