Reviewed 21 April 2016

Stayed in the 1st weekend of March, 2016. Awesome property, great rooms and a great little water-park. The breakfast is above average and there are plenty of great places to eat close by. The area is great for shopping as well (the original Fleet Farm store is across the street). Rooms are a good value, spacious and clean. I can't...

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

Thank you for the great review. I can tell we think alike about The Men's Mall-Mills Fleet Farm. I go there so much they probably think I'm a secret shopper! Our staff works very hard to see what you saw as our guest-clean rooms, a great water park, good breakfast and an "awesome property". Each and every one of them...

Great stay in a great comfort suites. All the staff was excellent, gave an extra hour for the hot tub as a courtesy after a long drive. Very appreciated. Beds very comfortable and the rate was good. Only complaint and it goes for most hotels is I wish someone would come up with some real eggs instead of cardboard powdered...

Thank you for the wonderful review. You hit it right away when you mentioned staff, they are the reason we get reviews like yours and I'm proud to be associated with each and every one of them. The beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers with Super Topper pads on them, the gust comments have all been super just like...

Motel was clean, staff was friendly, free hot breakfast, modern room decor, nice waterpark, check-in and check-out fast and efficient. Reasonable rates. I highly recommend this motel, will definitely be back!

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

Thank you so much for all the kind words. I'm always happy to see "Clean, Friendly & Efficient " in a review. The reason all these happen is because of the great staff we have, we are blessed to have each and every one of them. They take great pride, as do I, when they are acknowledged by a guest...

Saint Cloud, Minnesota
Reviewed 22 March 2016

Our family went up for a night to enjoy the waterpark. The hotel has a cute up north theme. Our room was clean though some of the furniture seemed a little worn. The waterpark was fun with plenty of options for our 4 and 7 year olds. The chlorine level was high--understandable in pools frequented by lots of small people--but...

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

Thank you for doing the nice review. We get many compliments regarding the "Up North" theme we try to carry throughout our property. In the last year we've put in all new carpets, new sofa sleepers, new chairs, new draperies, and a variety of smaller less noticeable improvements so we can continue to stay on top of things. I do...

It was nice, it has a decent little indoor water park. The hotel is clean and breakfast is ok. It was loud do to the water park and all of the sports tournaments going on in the area. But the hotel served the purpose.

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

Justin, "The hotel is clean" is one of the highest compliments we can get, thank you. I'm happy to hear you had a good time but you are correct that that was a busy weekend. The first two weekends in February are a huge basketball weekend and a hockey weekend that fill every hotel in the area and sometimes even...

Our granddaughter turned 1 and we had the party in a meeting room and also used the water park. Grandma and grandpa and auntie stayed in a suite. Very nice! Room could have been a little wider but overall very nice. Somewhat spendy for a one night stay. But overall very clean, staff was polite and no noise issues for...

Cindy, You saw the "Magic"! Even at just a year old your granddaughter made a memory that will last a lifetime. Kids have so much fun in there we never get tired of watching them. I'm a grandparent too and can tell you that even though my grand kids are 5 and almost 7 that going to Grandpas Water Park...

The hotel was lovely and in a great location! Most of the staff was very helpful and friendly; especially Laura- a true peach! Breakfast was great and the staff went out of their way to get it ready a tad early before our boys final game on Sunday. Big rooms and great value. The "pool police" could stand to learn...

Very clean, comfortable two queen bed suite with sofa bed. Perfect for family of five. Clean and comfortable with normal wear and tear. We were able to check in two hours early. First floor is in the middle of a remodel, but doesn't affect any guests. Waterpark was never crowded. It's in need of some maintenance, but kept clean. Staff...

Thank you Matt, "Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff" are about the kindest words an old hotel guy can hear. If we weren't blessed to have the staff you encountered none of those would be possible and it's always appreciated when a guest acknowledges them. During October every square inch of our hotel was re-carpeted and to undertake a project of...

Tyrone, that review is as good and complete as it gets!

None of what you described can be achieved without the staff you were so nice in describing. They...

This lodge is a gem. More important than this Comfort Suites' great location, immaculate rustic-looking facility (including a state-of-the art indoor water park) and comfortable bedding, the staff understands the importance of stellar customer service. During our two-day stay, we found that each employee (whether at the front desk/breakfast area, maintenance, preparing rooms or in a managerial position) acted with...
