Recent guest reviews

Nice location in town, nice, clean room. Good continental breakfast.

Stayed the night while visiting friends in Waseca. A great room for the price. We found it to be very comfortable and clean. We would consider staying again.

Very pleased with the accomodations. Room was comfortable, clean and suited our stay in Waseca. We would stay here again.

We love this hotel, cute, clean, and friendly staff :)

Very helpful staff, nice and clean.

It is probably the worst hotel experience I have had in a long time . The beds were so hard ,it was uncofortable . The pillows were the thickness of postage stamps .It was one of the most uncomfortable stays in a long time . I thought this type of hotel went out in the 90's .Cool aid for orange juice and 2 kind of cereal . No decaf coffee This hotel should not have a rating . Oh and the dounuts were not fresh .

stay would have been better if had a pool or hot tub.

When reserving the room for my trip to St Peter, MN I was trying to get a room in Mankato, The first one was full. I filled out the page for a second room and pushed purchase. The response came back "try Later". Looking for inexpensive motels I than looked down a the American Motel in Waseca, not knowing how far Waseca is from St. Peter. I drove the 40 miles or more to Waseca rather than the 10 miles to Mankato-A mistake I will not make again.

Priced right, clean and easy to find.

Location was good as we wanted to be near Elysian. We were in a non-smoking room but could smell smoke from nearby. Close to dining, which isn't much in Waseca. (But the Pizza Ranch buffet was great and very inexpensive!) We would stay there again mainly based on price, vs. a more expensive competitor. After all, you only sleep and showere there.
