Very comfortable beds in nice clean room. Refrigerator and microwave were appreciated. While the restaurant was not open, and the water slide was out of order, we still enjoyed our stay there. Grandkids had a blast in the pool, which isn't too deep...about 4'6" in the deep end. The continental breakfast had a nice variety. Hard boiled eggs, fruit, cereal...

Restaurant and water slide not working all summer long. 5 channels on TV lineup not working; 19 are if you want to see cartoons and fox and old movies. Asked the desk clerk upon checkin where the ice machine was on the second floor; he did not know. You are provided two plastic cups in the room. The pool complex...

The reason I chose this hotel was the location close to some attractions my wife and I wanted to see. It also advertised a full bar and restaurant which was important to us because our activities would bring us back to the hotel in the evening and Orr doesn't have many restaurants to choose from. When I made the reservation...

My husband pre-booked this for a 1 night stay since it is near Voyageurs National Park. It offers a pool with a large slide and restaurant. The place was not a "resort" by any stretch of the imagination. The rooms were pretty basic. The comforter and blanket had what looked like cigarette holes in it. The slide was broke which...

Then we stop there again on the way home. Ovesons is the most modern quality hotel in the area a ta reasonable price. The Dam is our...

We have stayed at this facility a number of times over the past 6-7 yrs... and most recently this past weekend. It's a great place to stay, a wonderfully helpful staff, clean modern rooms, great views of the lake...and many activities in the area. Their restaurant was closed for the season, but the bar was still open - which we...

Stayed 2 nights slide was broken for the weekend. Poor continental breakfast , kids were diaponted with the stay. The beds were hard like sleeping on the floor, rooms were clean except for burn holes on the comforter. Staff did not offer any discount for broken slide, that is the only reason we choose the hotel. The hotub was cool...

We stopped for dinner at the restaurant and was hugely disappointed. The restaurant was staffed by one unfriendly person who was the waitress, bartender and the cook. Many people came in after us, saw the complete lack of service and turned around and left. The quality of the food was marginal at best.

We visited here on a family vacation. The manager was extremely friendly and was working his tail off and still had a smile on his face! The room had a small fridge and microwave, the beds and bedding was a little outdated, but we weren't there to hang out in the room. The free breakfast was very limited, some muffins,...
