Very disappointed in this hotel. Very noisy with banging on the walls and dogs barking. Room was okay. In need of updates. Continental breakfast was not the best. With only cereal and bread and fruit to choose from. If you wanted juice you you were out of luck. Would not stay again.

The price was good. The location was good. This is a pretty large place. You can tell that it used to be an upscale hotel. Those days are gone, however. It wasn't terrible just pretty dated. The heater only barely kept up with the cold and it really wasn't that cold outside, mid twenties. There was exposed wiring where It...

My husband and I live in Albert Lea. We were to be attending an event at the ABVI so we booked an Advance booking for a room. The event was changed to a diff. venue and a diff. date. We had non-refundable Advanced rate room so decided to stay at the hotel. The front desk gal was great! Very friendly!...

This is not a destination. It's a hotel for travellers on their way who need a clean, quiet place to sleep and a bath for a good price. That's what we got. At first, we thought this was a strip mall, but then the huge sign in front confirmed it was a motel. The motel had a safe in the...

We were driving from jersey to my Rushmore and found this small town as a good halfway point. I kind of knew what I was getting from the prices and reviews. Don't expect the hilton but u will get a comfy bed and a free drink. The pool is more YMCA than luxury as we'll as the outdoor area but...

We found the swimming pool overflowing. Not only was that very dangerous to the safety of children, lots of water was wasted and the water began flowing under the door into the hallway and into 4 of the closest rooms. I called the front desk to warn them and no one answered. We were told that we would get a...

This used to be a Best Western, and probably another brand before that. You can see that the property is aging. Rugs and such are worn and the room furnishings were a little worse for wear. The TV was not a flat screen. Other than that things worked well. The front desk clerk was very helpful. I had requested a...

The only positive I can make is that the reception desk was helpful, but this failed to overcome the negatives of the inn. It is old, in desperate need of updating and the housekeeping, well it fails... I probably spend in excess of 50 nights per year in a hotel, so do have some experience of various levels of hotels....

We had made our reservations back in June. The closer we got to leaving for our trip to SD we became concerned about this hotel based on more recent reviews. We decided we would check it out and then decide what we would do. Luckily, we left our bags in the car as we checked out the room. I will...

I would give this hotel a 5 just for Skylar at the front desk. What a wonderful employee!!! He was helpful, courteous, and had a great personality. Now for the room - the room was large and had a keurig coffee maker. We also like the desk area that could be converted to a table. However the room looked like...
