We stayed here for a weekend in July. For a basic motel it was great. It was very clean and quiet. The air conditioning kept the room very comfortable. The mini fridge had a separate mini freezer compartment which kept food frozen. There was a coffee maker and microwave in the room. Cable TV. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Nisswa Motel for one night while in town for a funeral. While the rooms are definitely dated, decor-wise, it was perhaps the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. The room was large and comfortable, every staff member I met was very friendly and helpful, and the location was awesome, within easy walking distance of pretty much... More

I was looking for a mid priced place to stay in Nisswa for one night. The reviews on this website said the place was great so I decided to stay. As we were pulling into the parking lot, my husband looked at me and said "What have you gotten us into?" When he opened the door to the room, he... More

As stated in other reviews, the Nisswa Motel is just that...a motel where the doors open to the parking lot. Location is superb, owners are super friendly and accommodating, and although the rooms are not 'modern contemporary' design, they are large and super clean. Would definitely stay here again. (I almost hate to say how much we enjoyed it because... More

Location right in town, one block from Paul Bunyan Trail, along with previous good reviews on this site led us here and we were not disappointed. Room was comfortable, highway noise minimal. Facility does not look like much from the outside. Modern TV, very good freezer with our frig- actually able to keep some things frozen. One older, well worn... More

Owners went above and beyond the call of duty to insure our stay was enjoyable! Very clean as well. The open plan, single story motels have fallen out of favor perhaps but this was such a nice throwback to traveling with my family growing up, that it was nice for my kids to experience it.

The Nisswa Motel exceeded my expectations in many ways. My room was spotlessly clean, well maintained, quiet and comfortable. The motel is within short walking distance of Nisswa's shops and restaurants. Access to Rt. 371 (and thus the area lakes and attractions) was quick and easy. Overall a great place to stay.

I stayed here on a Saturday night while in the area for a wedding, and was very pleased. The location is excellent in the cute touristy town of Nisswa. The rooms were very clean and updated.
