I rate this hotel as poor due to the heavy smell of smoke in all public spaces and that my non-smoking room must have been smoking once. Additionally, the tub's anti-slip coating was flaking off causing my son to loose his balance and slip. I was not happy. The flaking of the anti-slip coating goes with the run down feeling...

My husband and I were in MN from Michigan to see our new grandson and didn't want to bother the new parents by being in their house. We were comfortable in this clean , friendly hotel. The pool area was very nice. I was able to walk nearby to stretch my legs and also do some shopping and walk to...

We were greeted by a friendly staff member who helped ensure we got the best rate possible. Our room was comfortable and clean. We stayed at this location here instead of finding a place in the cities as it was just 30 minutes from where we needed to be the following morning.

Hotel is conveniently located in Forest Lake with multiple restaurants, stores nearby, many within walking distance. I have stayed at this location many times over the years for business and it is quiet, affordable, clean, friendly staff.

Overall, stay was fine. Rooms could have been cleaner ( found linen with wads of hair stuck to them and pulled a few towels off the shelf that had stains on them) Staff was not welcoming at all. There was one woman who was very nice and friendly that worked in the morning and the girl at check in was...

We were wanting take our son swimming for his birthday and they met all our needs fabulously! even down to letting us eat in the breakfast area. For our small group it worked out great, and while the building itself was old and smelled of cigarette smoke, the room was updated and fresh, with none of the smell inside it.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff friendly and helpful. The heating unit was noisy but worked well so I just warmed up the room and then shut it off for the night so I could sleep. Breakfast was a little disappointing – slices of ham floating in hot water, the waffle was undercooked and doughy....

The staff was accommodating and the hotel was clean. It was also a quiet setting. The senior citizen or military discount is a very nice service. We gave it a four because the egg omelets were cold but we warmed them in the microwave. Overall, it was a relaxing and comfortable stay.

The outside of the Hotel needs to be painted and the lobby entrance needs a sign since there are 2 door ways from the parking lot. The Hotel staff members are helpful and accommodating. The location is directly off I-35 and very convenient for travelers since there is a selection of stores for shopping, many restaurants, gas stations, etc. are...
