Prime Rate Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Baseboard heating was weak so room was cold. Nice big flat screen TV.

I would stay there again. Staff was friendly and room was comfortable.

This was a very last minute decision. We wanted inexpensive and we got cheap! What is the old saying...you get what you pay for?! One of my gauges of a hotel stay is do they have a hairdryer in the room. If they do, it's a decent place. Needless to say, no hairdryer. No wifi. The complementary shampoo, conditioner, and soap left a lot to be desired. It was hard to believe, after 30 minutes of some dude's loud music, that I was the only guest who had called the desk. Kudos to the night auditor, he addressed it immediately. The coffee and donuts in the lobby were ok.

This hotel by far is worth the price. I would stay here again any time. The only thing was the distance from the places I was going. I noticed it was a drive to get anywhere though so it didn't really matter.

The motel was very easy to locate and access. The front desk staff was very helpful, attentive and polite. I was required above to rate the wifi which we never used. Now the bad stuff. We had one of our nicer cars and as we were getting our bags out of the trunk a passing younger lady said, I hope you have a good alarm system. This area isn't very good. Granted we didn't have any problems but this was a little off-putting. Our room was nearest to the entrance on the end of the wing of the building and it reeked of stale cigarette smoke. Smoking in a public building has been illegal in MN for a long time.

good rooms for reasonable prices would recommend to any one looking for room while out of town

Awesome hotel nice staff and rooms the rooms were clean and it was a nice quiet hotel right off interstate

For the price, the hotel met expectations. Cheap, but still had a pool and hot tub. Recommend for those looking for an affordable night in the twin cities area.

I had business in Burnsville and this hotel worked out great! Clean, convenient, comfortable and incredibly inexpensive! My room had a microwave and a refrigerator, plus flat screen TV and cable! They also have a pool, a hot tub, and free parking! The staff was friendly and helpful. All in all, a great experience!

Pleasant, reservation was speedy and suited needs.

I WAS GREAT EXPERIENCE. WE CAN SLEEP VERY WELL. IT WAS VERY CONFORTABLE AND WARM. IS PERFECT FOR THE WINTER

It was nice to check in at 2pm. It's a busy, older hotel, seemed quiet for a Friday night, Oct. 10th, did not hear others at all, bed was comfortable. Breakfast is assorted donuts and coffee/hot chocolate, there is a vending machine with assorted beverages, including juice that is reasonably priced. Only complaint was when we opened the door to our room, it had a strong musty odor, probably coming from the carpet because the room was clean. That odor was in our room and no where else.

The room was clean, but the musty smell was horrible. I thought at first it was from the pool and chlorine but it was musty. We cleaned out the air filter and that didn't help. If I had to stay again, I would request a room upstairs and check the room before renting.

The hotel was ok. No frills at all. The colors and the decor are pretty dated. You get what you pay for I guess.

I found the staff pleasant but the daughter working the next day literally looked like she rolled out of bed to come in. The breakfast was pitiful. Donuts were the only option. There was not even a liquid cream or milk for coffee. It was just very, very ok.

Worst hotel experience I've had in years. Tiny, out-dated room with an incredibly uncomfortable bed and walls so thin you clan hear everything going on in the hotel. My room was never cleaned (apparently the "housekeeper" said I had put up a "Do Not Disturb" sign - an absolute lie). I will have nightmares about this place for years.

This is an economical motel with a great location. No frills, but clean and comfortable.

staff was friendly, bed wasn't too comfy, price was great

Good place for the price. Will go again Give a try. Jjdn b JM dbf.

We have stayed at this motel before and knew that it wasn't anything fancy, but clean and comfortable. This time our room was really run down. The furniture was literally falling apart and didn't look like any effort had been made to repair it. The toilet wasn't flushing well and we reported the next morning that it was plugged.
