Hotel had a sign stating that they were short staffed, but all staff we encountered were very friendly and accommodating

Our stay couldn’t have been more perfect! I took my 3 grandchildren there for some weekend fun, ages 6, 9 and 9. They had a blast! The waterpark was amazing, the room was very clean and comfortable and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We missed the hot breakfasts (eggs, waffles, etc.) due to COVID but we were offered a good breakfast sandwich which we could microwave. The location was perfect for shopping, church and dining. We will definitely be back!

Nice. Wish it had a jacuzzi

The staff was very friendly. The water park was GREAT!

Comfort Suites is our go hotel in Brainerd/Baxter when we need a quick overnight get away. Rooms are modern, beds comfortable and hotel clean.

The only thing disappointing was the water park wasn’t open during the week, otherwise the hotel was excellent.

Pool area was great for kids. We were very pleased with the attentiveness of the life guards.

Great place********************************************

Found this hotel to be the best price in the area (which included a water park) for our family of 5. The staff was friendly, hotel was not too noisy or crowded. Unfortunately part of the pool area (the small child water area) was closed but they offered an apology and a refund if we wanted to stay elsewhere. The breakfast was wonderful (included eggs & meat). The room was clean (did notice some cobwebs on top of one of the lamps) and nicely decorated but a little tight for the 5 of us, especially once the sofa was made into a bed. Beds seemed higher off the floor than normal and were not extremely comfortable. My husband and I were both sore after the 2 night stay. The kids did have a good time though and that was worth it for us.

I have stayed at this hotel several times, and it never disappoints! The rooms are always clean, and the beds are comfortable. At times it can be noisy, but that is to be expected with family oriented hotel!
