This motel is very very nice. We stayed Easter weekend and totally enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very nice, loved the updated decor. The pool looked really fun even though we didn't have the time to try it. The breakfast is amazing. And I can't wait to go back to use the courtyard. Over all a very enjoyable place...

It's not a very good feeling when you walk back into your room and find your purse not sitting the same it was when you left. Then to look inside and see the housekeeping staff took $90 right out of it. Very upsetting that I work hard for my money and they think they can just take it.

We take our guests property as seriously as we take our own. Had you advised us that there was an issue while you were still on the property, we possibly could of pin pointed exactly what happened. We are not set up to view over 48 hours of previous activity. Two things have been accomplished here, 1) we need to...

We stopped here one night traveling from Phoenix to Brainerd, MN. It was dark and our GPS told us to make a U-turn instead of just turning left and then another left onto the frontage road. Otherwise, we found it ...no problem. We didn't really know what to expect but our room was actually really nice and the bed super...

We stayed at the Dakotah Lodge in March '17, and enjoyed our stay immensely! The staff was so friendly and helpful. Our girls absolutely loved the pool and the water slide. They're still talking about it. The rooms were nice and quiet. The continental breakfast was great too! Lots of variety, and a really cute kitchen area. They have a...

This is a very nice place that has been remodeled recently. Very quick and friendly check-in. Cozy rooms, with new carpet, frig, microwave, flat screen ,and nice bathrooms.

We stayed here a Saturday night on our way west. Our assigned room was ajar and beds had been used so I went back for a new room and was immediately tended to and a new room was provided across the hall. Pool was mayhem and overcrowded with kids, teenagers and drunk parents. Kids liked the water slide but it...

Weekends are very busy with children for us the pool area is a great place for them to hang out, I wish we could quiet them before they hit the halls with their happy feet and voices. I do apologize for the noise, if something like that is going on contact the front desk and we will do everything in...

The price was right. Everything was great. Entire hotel was immaculately clean and well cared for. Extremely friendly staff and very informative who warmly greeted us anytime they saw us. Fitness room as good; pool was fun for families and for us older generations. Free breakfast was delicious. I especially like the decor and the two fireplaces in the lobby.

We reserved this hotel to enjoy the water park with our children. The website states that the water park can be reserved on SUNDAYS from 1-3 pm or from 3:30-5:30. So imagine the unpleasant surprise when we came to the water park at 1:30 on SATURDAY to find 2 HUGE parties going on. 1 birthday party full of young teens...

I am sorry that you were not able to enjoy your stay with us due to so many people in the pool area. We had 2 rather large family reunions that weekend and the pool was the meeting place for the families. Our pool area is a smaller area and that must have been a shock to you, I am...

We came up this weekend for a cheer competition and chose this hotel, over the one everyone else was staying at, because my girls saw your slide on your website and fell in love. We left early from Nebraska to get there so they could enjoy a lot of swim time. Unfortunately, after only a half hour, they requested to...

We had a great stay. Drove 12 hours called to reserve a room was thrilled when the pool area was open until 11pm. Perfect way to get the kids worn down. Also, room was great for price, clean. Breakfast was AWESOME. Very impressed with Dakotah Lodge!
