We rarely can find a hotel which easily accommodates our four young boys and ourselves. Our suite was perfect, and the complimentary breakfast was a BONUS! This is the fourth hotel I have stayed at this past year (in different areas of the country) and the beds at The Lodge (mattress, pillows, sheets were BY FAR the most comfortable. We... More

I typically stay at Holiday Inn properties but heard good things about this Best Western. I will always stay here from now on when in the Detroit Lakes area! Nice wine reception and lounge area overlooking the lake. The best breakfast buffet complete with lefse- so you know you are getting back to your roots. There is a spa downstairs... More

OMG. What a jewel. I was skeptical when I saw Best West but, when it was followed by Premier I decided to give it a chance. It's a small hotel. Maybe 15 rooms. It has a wood lodge look but with all the modern amenities including a bar and player piano. It has a small beach area with chairs. Lake... More

This hotel is located on the lake and has its own private beach and picnic areas. There are a few room options - we had a beautiful room with a king bed, fireplace and jet tub. The decor was 'woodsie' - appropriate for a log-style lodge and very comfortable. The only downside is the medal furniture on the deck. We... More

Beach is nice and they have paddle boards and kayaks for guests use. Exceeded all our expectations. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all... More

We were really looking forward to a staying on Detroit Lake in the summer since we hadn't been there before. I chose a two queen room on the first floor so we only had to step across the lawn to get to the beach. When we got to the room we were very impressed with the furnishings and decor. Unlike... More

We loved everything about this hotel - when you check in they have cold lemongrass clothes which hit the spot after being in the car for a few hours. Rooms and hotel are done in wood/pine throughout which gives it a rustic charm. All rooms face the lake; we were on the second floor and had a great view. Room... More

Lodge decor and ambience was a plus. All rooms have lake view. Extra amenities available. Evening s'mores a fun touch. Paddle boards and boats available to use on the lake. Breakfast included. No restaurant on site, but town is a short distance by car.
