Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The rooms are clean. The staff is kind and willing to assist with your needs. The lake view is real nice and enjoyable. The bar and restaurant is the best part of the hotel. The cheap breakfast and awesome happy hour specials is my favorite.

Joe and Sheila at the front desk are amazing. I travel to Detroit Lakes for both business and vacations. I always stay at the Holiday Inn, all due to Joe and Sheilas outstanding service and commitment to their customers.

The lakeside rooms have a fabulous view and the pan-fried walleye in the on site restaurant is amazing. Unfortunately, there are many rude guests who slam doors and smoke on the balcony which makes other rooms and the hall smell of smoke.

Overall, I like the set up of this property. It's on Detroit Lake. It has a restaurant & bar within it with happy hour drink and/or appetizer specials - good atmosphere. There is no continental breakfast included with the room which is a bit disappointing considering the room rate. The pool area is larger than most with a lot of...

We stayed at the holiday inn this weekend. The staff was very friendly especially our morning server in the restaurant. We did not get her name but she was super friendly and even remembered our kids orders the next morning! But I will say that the pool levels must of been off.

Joe was great at check-in. Very friendly and efficient. The service at the hotel is great. If you need anything the staff is more than willing to help. The rooms are adequate, older hotel but has been updated.
