Recent guest reviews

The place smelled moldy. Mold on curtains, bathroom dirty, sheets stained, carpet filthy. Not clear that location was on business 371 rather than 371 main highway. Wouldn't refund money when said we couldn't stay because of mold allergies. Should be taken off Orbitz.

Our first room had dead bugs on the bathroom floor more were found under the bed (at least they were dead). The air stank of mold, and indeed there was a large white efflorescence of mold on the carpet beneath the bed. The pleasant woman at the front desk offered a new room. The replacement smelled *very* strongly of old cigarettes and was also damp, but was slightly better than the first. The linens and towels were clean however. The staff is extremely overworked (maybe 2 people run the whole place), so breakfast was not set-up the first morning of our stay. I would not recommend this hotel.

We arrived late and there was nobody at the desk, just a telephone. We dialed the number and moment laster some guy who looked like he just woke up came to the desk and was very abrupt and short with us. The front desk experience was surprising. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

Musty smell in entire hotel. First set of from key cards would not unlock door, nor would second set. Desk clerk then gave me one that finally worked. Room air conditioner was off (80 + in room). Did not notice until returned from wedding reception that there were no bath towels in room, others staying there also said there were no towels in their rooms either. (Room was comfortable temp on return) I went to front desk to ask for towels, night clerk came out of office with a piece of pizza in her hand; I asked for towels and she said she'd bring some to our room. Since my wife was in bed I said I'd wait for her to get some, she went back into office and I waited 15 min... finally I gave up & went to room, 5 min later she brought towels to our room. Bed was comfy.

Would not stay here again. Breakfast was rally sparce and unappetizing also.

Check in was quick! The price for the room was way too expensive.

Considering the price i paid, I thought the service was okay. The room was also clean and well maintained.

Easy to fnd if you are traveling on Alternet MN 371. Rooms were clean and the lobby was well kept. The Breakfast was a little sparse.

The hotel was not as it appears in the pictures listed on the site. The hotel is older and the room definitely needed some updating. The bathroom also had multiple stains on the tile and in the tub; however, overall the room was fairly clean. Also, there is no one at the front desk, no matter what time of day. There was a number posted at the front desk [in order to contact a staff person], and both times we called we felt like were waking that staff member up. This hotel is fine if you just need a cheap place to sleep at night, but not if you are planning to spend any time at the hotel or in room during the day.

The staff was very accommodating. My husband needed some handicapped accessories and they were able to accommodate us with a king bed, which we wanted but didn't think was available, and brought in a stool for the shower to help him. Everything was in order and the bed was very comfortable, and the room was clean and the air conditiioning worked great. The only negative thing was at breakfast the waffle maker was not working. The hotel was easy to access from the highway--right off the road. Great value for the money, and they let pets stay.

The location of this hotel was ideal and away from the city which one can sleep comfortably in a country setting. The room which was assigned as a non smoking room had been smoked in with obvious burn marks on the tub and nicotine stains on shower walls. The luggage, when departing, had an odor common with cigarette smell. The Continental Breakfast was not impressive. The weekend was ok, but when the weekdays arrived there was no waffle mix and lacking in fruit. (bannanas and apples only) I would recommend paying a bit more and finding a more popular hotel/motel.

The place was hard to find [...]. I finally found the address in Brainerd. Also, it did not come up on my GPS when I plugged in "lodging".

Hotel was good, simple and cheap. [...]

Nothing to write home about here, a good room at a good price. Room was clean and quiet, staff was Minnesota nice. :) There are better hotels and resorts in town for families but if you are just looking for a cheap place to sleep, this is it.

This hotel is not for someone who doesnt like not being in the city, there is harldy anything around unless you want to drive for 10-15 minutes to get somewhere, there is not much to do for entertainment in this area either. The hotel was an older hotel and there is not much security at the hotel. Bed was very uncomfortable, room smelt old, and smoking rooms are right next to non-smoking rooms so its not really a non-smoking room then. One good thing though... the room was a pretty good size so thats a plus. I guess you get what you pay for.

This hotel was just what I was looking for. It was very quiet, clean and cozy. The beds were very comfortable. The only negative comments I have, was my bath drain stopper didn't work and the furniture in the lobby could have used a little work. The location was great, on the outskirts of town. Very pretty setting.

look elsewhere for accomidations would still be a poor value for half the price.
