Recent guest reviews

We were going up to Bemidji for the State Archery Tournament and our group had a block of rooms here. It was a good deal so made the reservation. I hadn't realized that it was in Walker, but this ended up being a good thing. This is a neat looking hotel and you can tell in the summer it was be crazy busy and probably expensive. All the more happy I was. There is so much charm and what looks like alot of history in this hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. The beds were comfy and linens felt nice. The pool area was very nice and hot tub was actually hot. Something that seems to be foreign in some hotels. The front desk staff were great and very polite. The restaurant turned out to be good too. We liked the breakfast buffet and the windows the best. All in all this was a good experience and I will go back if we are up there again.

My husband and I and another couple stayed for a weekend in February! Extremely nice accommodations in the condo we rented. The restaurant had excellent food, ribs were to die for! Would love to go back in the summer!

Fresh cooked burgers with all the fixings and toppings you can imagine for $6. Make a mushroom and Swiss or a California style or whatever you desire all the toppings and ingredients are fresh! We go all the time.

We visit Chase On the Lake twice per year. This trip we rented snowmobiles and had a blast! We enjoy the weekend breakfast buffet the swimming pool is nice with one whole wall of glass. It’s fun to soak in the hot tub and look outside. We always meet and visit with friendly staff and other guest. It’s a great facility and it’s right on the ice! Or water 😎

We booked a pet-friendly, two-bedroom Condo (with 1 bathroom) for a weekend of ice-fishing fun. We actually got a package deal with the room and the ice house located a short walking distance out on the lake. The room was very clean and fully met our expectations for comfort. In fact, I actually think the rooms exceeded what we figured we would get with lots of room and a full kitchen. Oh, not everything about the stay was rosey as the only problem we consistently had was with the toilet flushing properly. Friends who were staying two floors up also experienced a toilet that would not always flush properly. We ended up having housekeeping come a couple times and so did our friends. This was a minor inconvenience and I don't know if it was just the design of the toilets or what...but when you get a unit with only one bathroom it was a minor inconvenience at times. Otherwise, I really can't complain about the rooms. Furniture was obviously not new, but did not show excessive wear. Did notice some excessive staining on the painted walls which made me wonder what happened there...but everything was clean. All in all a great place for the money (if you can get a deal) and I will definitely be back again in the future. Hopefully in the same room (2207).

Our family spent the weekend at Chase on the Lake. We enjoy the Chase but the three bedroom condos need a refresh. The couch is worn and very uncomfortable. The appliances are loud and definitely well used. We will definitely be back but hope some maintenance and updates are planned soon. Perfect location, housekeeping staff are helpful and layout of condo is perfect for whole family.

I was excited about staying at this hotel as it had a touch of historical charm and centrally located in the town, within walking distance of local shops and the lake. I began to get a unsettling feeling about the accommodation when upon check-in I was required to read and sign an informational page about rules for hockey players and their families. Do they spell out all the rules to all the guests? Or just pick and choose which ones to alienate. Told myself to just relax, got a parking pass (seems a little odd), and made our way to our room. It’s a bit small, clean, cheap furnishings, but seems okay. I looked out the window to what I was told would be a beautiful lake view. Well, if you look at an angle, over the rooftops, you see some of the shanties on the bay. That evening we came back from a game. I dropped my wife and son at the door and proceeded to park. I circled the lot twice, nothing. Decided to wait for someone to leave as it seems surely someone has somewhere they need to be. Nope. After another 15 minutes and circling the lot several more times, all the while becoming more frustrated at the situation, I made a grave mistake and decided to vent a little frustration with the front desk. Partly for failing to advise us of where we can and possibly will have to park, and partly for expanding a hotel/bar/spa/condo/restaurant/whatever without allowing for adequate parking. Walking to the front door, catching myself from falling on a large sheet of solid ice, I may have let a single vulgarity slip when I asked about additional parking. The receptionist at the front desk immediately turned to the defensive and informed me that she would not tolerate that language and that she was seriously offended by it. Wow! No concern as to why your guest could possibly be upset or what you could do to defuse the situation, but was very quick to throw it back to me how parking was not their problem as the lots were controlled by the city. The answer seemed a little too rehearsed to be something they weren’t all too familiar with. As I exited to try and find some on street parking, I heard some mumbling about what had just happened. There were no other guests present at the time so I assume they were talking about me. Made it back to my room to find out from my wife, who happened into the hallway in the lobby right as I left the building, that the front desk was discussing about how they should have me thrown out. I have worked in retail, I have worked in hospitality, and I have worked in the service industry and I have never seen a company that doesn’t know how to handle even the slightest customer dissatisfaction without resorting to such an unprofessional response. As I lie in bed writing this review, listening to the noise from the bar downstairs and the noisy bathroom fan, and the loud roar of the odd heating system, in the glow of a pathetically undersized television I still feel like this should be fair and based more on facts than the events of our first evening. I will say, however, that it is better accommodations than the hotel we stayed in when traveling through South Dakota on our way to the Black Hills, but then again that place was one-third the price. Sorry Lee’s.

I stayed in the family suite which was two floors above the lobby. Cute room! Reminded me of a college apartment. It had a small kitchen but worked well for us. My only complaints would be the couch was rock hard and the lack of parking Saturday night because of a wedding. We did eat lunch at the 502. The food was good but they need more staff. The one waiter/bartender did a good job but he was the only one on.

We stayed here 1 night. Had a great room, great bedding and towels. The bar had live music because it was a weekend. The food in the restaurant was good. A long time tradition in Walker walking distance to shopping! Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed for two nights and we enjoyed our weekend away from the Twin Cities. It is an "up north" experience so the pace is a little lower, but that is exactly what we were looking for. The hotel was about half full as it is a slow time for them (not yet time for ice fishing/snowmobiling). We booked though "Groupon Getaways" so we were not able to request a lake view, but that was fine given the pice. We ate at the restaurant onsite twice (dinner & breakfast) and our service and food were good. Nothing special. Our room was small, but very clean and all we needed for the two of us. We used the hot tub one evening which was nice (although there did appear to be a fair amount of sand in the bottom). We also booked an hour at the bowling alley, although they did have some trouble with the lanes (we were refunded for the time) and maintenance had to be called. All and all it was a nice weekend getaway for us!
