My daughter has gone down water slides here before. The person there today said,she couldnt go down with me. Was very rude, did not want to explain. Seem like he was trying to ruin everybodies fun. I would advise you to just go to the holiday inn waterpark with the bigger park. They let you go down the slides no...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

Dylan, My apologies what you perceived as rude service. The situation you spoke of is a very difficult one for all hotels, not just us, in the water park business. The heights of children to use the slides is set by the State of Minnesota and confirmed compliance is required by a submitted safety plan we need to file that...

We stayed again in early March for spring break. As always the staff and facilities were great. This place remains our go-to spring break getaway. The room rates are reasonable, the water park is great, the area has plenty of restaurants and shopping. You really can't ask for anything more.

Scott, to return for another stay is the highest compliment a guest can pay a hotel, thank you so much! Your review mentioned the very thing that makes it all happen; the staff. I count my blessing every day to have each and every one of them. We try hard to watch the other water parks around the State to...

Great waterpark. Great safe design. Hot tub is right next to the kids play area, so easy to see kids while in in the hot tub. Their are 2 big slides: a body slide with no danger at the end (ends in small amount of water, not in a pool) and a tube slide. They have an abundance of tubes,...

Thank you for the wonderful review and comments. We're very proud of the way our water park is laid out and get lots of comments about it. Being able to see the kids definitely makes for a little time for parents to relax also. It’s especially in the kiddie’s end where you're always just a step or two away from...

We decided to stay here March 17th and 18th for a two night stay for our daughter's 3rd birthday. We stayed in the large suite that has bunk beds, a king bed and pull out couch. At first everything seemed ok clerk at the front desk was a bit snippy but everyone has those days. The room is big but...

Adam, I hope you can see from 99% of our reviews about how good our staff is that I was very disappointed when I read your insights. I will be sure to go over your comments at our next staff meeting. Please note also that the couches are barely a year old with top of the line innerspring mattresses. It's...

My family recently had 5 rooms here. My wife and I were upgraded from a single king standard suite to a huge king sized suite with a jacuzzi and separate bedroom! It worked out great as a gathering place with my family. Although this hotel has a large lobby, a meeting room you can rent, as well as a bonus...

What a wonderful review. You guys were a fun group and we got lots of great comments from other family members when they left. When a glowing review like yours comes in I can't help to count my blessings for the staff we have. Without the efforts of the entire team these kinds of comments just don't happen and I...

We stayed at this place for our parents 40th Wedding Anniversary and over all the place is great. The meeting room is big and accommodating and wasn't too loud. Everything was beautiful, clean, quiet, comfortable beds, decent breakfast, and although some of the life guards could chill a bit... the Waterpark was very nice and fun:)

Thank you Justin! You guys were a fun group. I can't tell you how proud we all get when a guest says CLEAN. We have a great staff and they take great pride in their work, we're blessed to have each and every one of them. Those beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers with special mattress pads and the...

The hotel is reasonably priced and very clean and comfortable. They have adapted a bit of the local flavor into the décor which is nice. Very quiet as well. I would recommend this as a place to stay especially if you have young kids as they have a water park on site.

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you for the wonderful and kind words. We are very proud of the look of our hotel and get many comments about the decor. I think the huge fireplace you see when you enter the lobby, the locally made log furniture, and all the custom lamps and other items are an extremely welcoming and cozy look. We just put...

I had this hotel assigned to me in that there was a craft expo in Little Falls, and this was the best close to Camp Ripley. It is a full 3 hour drive from MSP on good roads. Easy assess from the main highway into Baxter. I was given a 3rd floor room and told the Hotel is ALL NON-SMOKING....

Michael, overall your scores were very good and I thank you for that. I would like to address a few of your smoking concerns. I am probably the #1 worst hotel manager/owner an in-room smoker ever wants to meet. Smoking in a non-smoking hotel in my book is a mortal sin and disrespects myself and my hotel worse than any...

From the time we checked into this hotel everything was top notch. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The 8 and 11 year old boys thoroughly enjoyed the water park. The breakfast was very good. The only negative I could mention is that the wifi is a little weak-kept getting kicked off.

Thank Rose W

Thank you for the great comments! You saw a little of "The Magic!" I always speak about! I've always thought that when kids spend good quality time with their families they are forming memories that last a lifetime! It makes us proud to be even a small part of it. It's a great staff that makes for the clean rooms...

As you walk in you smell cedar as if you were going in to a sauna. Nice. Helpful desk clerk. Wonderful room with comfortable beds. My lads were highly impressed.
