Stayed two nights for class reunion. All the people who worked there were very helpful, the room as clean and nice clean towels. The hall upstairs could use a cleaning as it has an unpleasant smell, but did not carry into the rooms. Good coffee and fresh food for breakfast.

In Benson to meet up with first cousins. This hotel was on the site of first grade school, sorry to see the school gone but a nice clean hotel served me well. Sports bar and restaurant next door. Close to the center of town.

Relatives grew up in Wilmar, Benson, clontarf, Appleton Minnesota area. Friendly city. Fun to find graves (findagrave.com) of relatives never knew but have news clippings and stories heard about. Motel central and free breakfast and coffee were good.

Mediocre, could and should be better. When I asked about the abandon car in the front parking lot I was told they had a fire. This car had been plowed around the last time it snowed, at least a week or two. Saturday night the parking lot was cramed with cars to point that I was risking a fender bender.

We just stayed here during my mom's funeral services and it was just fine. It wasn't terrible and it wasn't great but it was good. We asked for a quiet room and it was quiet. The hotel was quite clean, the rooms needed a little more vacuuming in the corners and under the front of the beds but it was... More

Usually stay here while visiting the CNH Manufacturing plant in Benson MN. The stay is always comfortable, and priced right. Hotel can be a bit noisy on one side, but quiet on the other. One end can smell smoky as it is above the smoking area of the attached restaurant and bar. The breakfast is quite substantial, and is adequate... More

Our business tried to work with this hotel to book an extended stay. The manager not only referred to our boss as "cheap" for asking for the corporate rate but ended up hanging up on us after we expressed concern about a previous visit we had made. They do not staff their front desk and when we had an issue... More

We have stayed here quite a bit due to family living in the area. Normally it is a good place to stay, but our last visit was less than friendly. The day-staff is decent. However, the night manager (new to the job?) was not welcoming or friendly. Several issues occurred that were red flags: We had to go get her... More

A HUGE thank you to Kay at the front desk for going above and beyond to accommodate me when I was stranded in thick fog and freezing temperatures. If not for her dedication to great customer service, I don't know where I would have stayed warm that night.
