Location is very close to I35 just north of the tollway and yet is absolutely quiet. My room was immaculate as always, and the hosts are very hospitable. It has become my regular stopover on the way home from Houston to St. Paul, and I highly recommend it.

This is definitely a a limited budget place to stay but that doesn't mean it's bad. If all you need is a place to sleep that is clean and at least has the basics, TV, refrigerator, micro wave and a small breakfast this place is for you. There are plenty of good resturants near by with all types of food.... More

We stayed here on our way to Minnesota and on the way back. The night staff was very friendly and they have a decent breakfast with a waffle maker. The handicap room had a great bathroom with a sliding door and the price wasn't a bad price to stay the night.

This is a very neglected property. We were in town for the Dirty Kanza cycling event. All of the hotel rooms were sold out, but a friend gave us one of his extra rooms. I almost wish we would have just stayed in the dorms on campus. The property is old and hasn't seen any sort of upgrades. The lobby... More

Decent little hotel tucked away behind some buildings. Rates were quite low. The rooms are fair in size. Small bathroom with the sink in the main room. Had a small refrigerator in the room and a microwave. Nice flatscreen television with cable. Great continental breakfast for the price you pay for the room. The front desk staff was excellent. Very... More

When you're in the middle of nowhere, it is hard to find anywhere decent. But, this was perfectly fine. It is budget, but close enough to town to be a good roadtrip stop. There is a cool bar (in a shed like building) across the road which we had dinner at, and it was a fun night out. Overall, we... More

For the price, you get what you pay for. We needed a clean bed and a warm breakfast, and that's what we got. Easy on and off the highway we were traveling and didn't have a reservation. The price for the night was very inexpensive. It's a solid 3 star.

Crawling all over the floor in the bathroom. They would crawl on us when we sat on the toilet. The pool also was not open. There was large gaps under the doors and the doors did not close completely. There were also bugs on the walls in the room. We definitely won't stay here again.
