We stayed the weekend for a Hockey Tournament. The Location was perfect as the hotel is just down the street (maybe 100 yards) . After check in we went to our room. The hallway had a smell . Not horrible but a smell none the less. Some of the wallpaper in the hallway was peeling. And the carpet was stained... More

We stayed here for a 8 days while my son was being treated at Mayo. The hotel wasn't fancy but it was pretty clean (I'm a neat freak) and comfortable. It had a fridge and microwave. The shuttle was awesome, they were very accommodating...even made special trips for us when we missed the bus. The Viking lounge had great food... More

I stayed at this location when my daughter was at Mayo, and only after 8 days and contact with the corporate website did I get a response from the manager. The rooms are clean but are in serious need of remodeling. A dilapidated metal building with a caved in roof that the manager said was in the parking lot for... More

Great breakfast, the granola was the best we've ever had. The friendly staff were helpful and eager to please. However, the ground floor hallway and rooms in the detached wing were ancient and dilapidated with bad odors. Needs major overhaul.

I don't recommend this to anyone. People was very nice but I was bite by a Brown Recluse spider in their hotel room and told them about it. To this day I have not even heard a single word from them. I found this very disappointing. I wasn't asking them for anything other than Fumigate the room so this happened... More

They have all indoors, a swimming pool, kiddie pool and a hot tub. All decent size. Our beds were comfortable and had a good night of sleep. The free breakfast was just average. They do have a nice restaurant and bar. Nice place, we would stay here again.

Make no mistake, this is a budget-class hotel along the lines of Motel 6 and Knights Inn; 2 stories with about half of the rooms having outside access. A big selling point I could see though would be for families traveling with children. They have a indoor large pool and rec/play area where youngsters can burn off some energy after... More

Well, the people are nice and friendly, however there is a lot to be desired from this hotel. First of all ... Hairs in the bathroom, that's gross! Breakfast is something you can't hold down if you tried. Eggs were like rubber, hash browns tasted like very old grease. No toast, no meat, no waffles. Coffee was good tho. Drip... More
