nothing special, but no huge detraction's either PROS: right in the thick of town, clean rooms, quiet property, strong wifi signal (and free), fridge in room CONS: a bit dated on the decor and furnishings were somewhat worn - but not horribly so I would stay again- a very nice basic accomodation

This is a very nice, family operated motel! We try to stay at motels or b&b whenever possible to support small business. For the price you cannot beat this motel, but there are a few small issues. Pros: Extremely clean Within walking distance of everything in downtown Nisswa Spacious room Comfortable bed, firm but not too hard Shower has good,...

Great last min choice. We were running out of time and stopped in to get a room. Walking distance for most everything in Nisswa. The brewery is just at one end of the parking lot, easy walk. You park about 2 foot from your room door. This would be a great place to stay in the summer. The lady at...

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...

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...

We stayed at the Nisswa motel for one night while we were in the area for a birthday party. We found the motel to be very clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. The location is good and the front desk staff was very friendly! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet clean and...

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...

“There are several types of rooms, not just one and all the same. Some have two doubles, some two queens, one room has a single king. One or two rooms are pet-friendly. See the website for the options, or call.”
