My experience at this hotel was fine. It does need some updates as it was a bit dated and the outside needs a little updating as well. It seemed to me with the carpet rolls and boxes sitting in the hallways that a renovation is coming. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel was easy access from the highway. They...

We have completely switched from Americinn in Fergus to this hotel. The rooms are MUCH cleaner and the housekeeping is very good. They really do clean the rooms thoroughly and we've never had a stick of dirty furniture in the whole hotel. The only drawback is that there aren't any safes in the room. We really do miss that. I...

Went there for a wedding but would not have paid that much for the room if the wedding was not there. Strangely pricey for the area and the quality of the hotel. Bed was okay. But the room had an odd musty smell unless you really cranked up the AC but then it was freezing. The cleaning staff was very...

Hey Broz1974, thanks for the feedback. Rates do fluctuate based on a number of factors. Keep in mind June through September is peak season in our area. Lots of tourism to the beautiful lakes area of Otter Tail County. Booking well-in-advance is the best way to insure a better rate. Those pool-view rooms can be hit and miss with noise...

We stayed for the weekend for a local baseball tournament. It perfectly suited our needs for the weekend. The pool was clean and a nice place to hang out - and there were some good gathering spots for the parents to unwind. The breakfast, however, was not one to write home about. We ended up going out to another restaurant...

Thank you for a 4-star review, much appreciated. However, more importantly I'd like to know what we could do better with our full hot breakfast. We typically get stellar reviews, but appears we fell short this time. If you have an opportunity to reach out and provide some suggestions for food and beverage improvement, I'm all ears.

We really like the Bigwood Event Center and Hotel, the rooms are very clean and everything works, every time. We intend to book again in 3 months time, as my mom lives here, so we come often to visit. The only complaint I have is that the fitness center is rarely open. This has been explained to me, so now...

The property is dependable, clean and comfortable. They are going through a brand change though so a little tough to find online. I hear there are rooms available though and was encouraged to call directly 218-793-2211.

While visiting my sons future in-laws and extended family we stayed at the Best Western. The hotel met our needs of comfort, cleanliness and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting in the Fergus Falls area.
