I like the fact that the room was very clean and they had microwave and fridge. The common areas were cleaned and I liked the location.

I needed to check in late because i had a long drive to the hotel an had to drive through the night to get to Burnsville. I tried calling several times to notify the hotel but the phone never got answered by a live person. When I arrived at the hotel , I was told my reservation did not exist. As I booked my room with the guy at the counter I was told the room would be $60 cash. My reservation had been for $53 on line and he would not match that. Since I was quite tired and it was very late into the night I accepted. The room that he gave me #144 was already in use. Since I had carried all of my belongings into the hotel I left most of them near the door of 144 and went to the front desk. I was given another room down a different wing and has to re gather all my stuff and make the move. I guess that is fine ,but when I asked him for a receipt. which seemed to be a problem the clerk he only gave me a receipt for the credit for room #144 and not for the new room #110. My guess is that there was no record of me staying at the hotel and that he kept the cash. Also there was another person hanging around the lobby just wandering around sniffeling during the entire transaction... kinda strange for 4 AM.

The employees were great! They were very helpful and did everything with a smile. The one thing that would have made my stay more pleasant would have been a Continental breakfast.

Very clean and roomy rooms with huge Tv Coffee, and quiet Did not like: Motel was very clean but outside of the main entrance was a gathering area where employees would go out and smoke and just toss their butts on the ground. If I was the owner I would be a bit upset on how much effort and cost into rehabbing my motel into a clean nice environment only to have employees mess up the only real outside sitting area there is.Valu for the money 5 star.

Very good price point, great location close to several shopping malls

Just what we were expecting. We needed a cheaper hotel for a quick stay. We didn't expect red carpet, and the room was clean and friendly staff. Pool sufficed for kids for a short stay. Donuts were served in the morning and coffee available. Would recommend and stay again if in the area. Great price.

Nice that a property in this price range had a whirlpool and pool. Great value compared to others that I stayed at the previous days

nice pool and hot tub. location great. didn't appreciate housekeeping coming in to the room while do not disturb sign was there

The bed was comfortable and the staff was friendly. The hot tub was nice, too. The entire hotel smells though. We were in a non smoking room and still could smell smoke and what I think was a molding smell, like from wet clothes. “Breakfast” is a tray of donuts... and we were expecting at least oatmeal or something.

Low price with smoking room. Nice TV, and Continental breakfast. Smoking rooms are in poor condition.

The employees were very friendly and helpful. As soon as you walk in, you can smell the swimming pool. The property was clean, but well used. The bed were very firm and much more comfortable than I was expecting.

The room looked nothing like the pictures online! Paint was chipped on the wall..big chips. So many scuf marks on the walls. Beds were so old and saggy. The chairs were very wobbly, seemed like they were broke and put back together at some point. Cigarette burns all over the bath tub. Furniture was in very rough shape. Basically it was false advertisement, because it was nothing like it was advertised. And if you wanted a non smoking room you have to pay a $100 deposit, so had to get a smoking room. Because we had just gotten back from vacation and didn't have much money. So my kids had to sleep in a room with nasty stale cigarette smell every where. Was very disappointed. It did the job, but will not be staying again. Very run down.

Room was disgustingly dirty, ended up buying disinfectant wipes and sprays to clean the room myself. TV didn't work. One of the lamps was a fire hazard. 2 burnt out bulbs in our room. The fridge and microwave were dirty as all sin and smelt something awful. One of the staff members went and pounded on a guests door and proceeded to scream at them for whatever reason. Was just not a good time

Hotel room was impressive for the price of the room!

The staff was friendly & caring but we would never go back or recommend it. We are easy-going & seldom find fault but the first room smelled so musty that even my husband who has very little sense of smell complained. They gave us a room in a different hallway which smelled ok but the place needs a major upgrades. The towels were thin & very rough. Breakfast is only donuts, coffee & hot chocolate so we ate at Dennys close by. The very large nice tv did not work, but after trying 4 different suggestions from staff someone came to our room the 2nd day & fixed it. The beds were comfortable so we stayed.

Easy access to multiple locations! Relaxed in pool! Quiet fir just being off a highway! We needed a break to rejuvenate and we got it!
