Stayed two nights here. The room was clean , and we had no issues with noise, since we were one of a few staying . The pool was warm, whirlpool not too warm. Sauna was nice to have, but needed a while to warm up ,which is normal. The continental breakfast was underwhelming, with just a few baked goods, bad...

Room was clean and the front desk was polite. Our key cards wouldn't work the second day. Had to wake up the manager to get in. We were the only people staying in this hotel the whole weekend. You would think they would have more then four stale donuts.

The hotel had horrible reviews online and u fortunately I read them after making the reservation. Hotel was very outdated and simple. Breakfast was very small and not worth eating. You get what you pay for. For a place to relax and get away for my anniversary with my husband it was fine. But I probably won't be staying again.

Indifferent staff, no signage outside. Directions said to turn onto Smiley Road. No signs for SR. When I called the hotel they informed me the sign for Smiley was removed during recent road construction. Since I made the reservation by phone, it would have been helpful to know that the road and the hotel signs were missing. Breakfast was dismal.

The Sign has been replaced for the the hotel and working with the town to replace the road sign.

You can't beat the location and the pool and hot tub were great, but they need to spend more time keeping the rooms and hallways clean. It seems more like a less than $75 hotel. The breakfast needs a few more options like jam and peanut butter for the toast. Pretty heavy on the carbs.

GROTTY does NOT being to describe this hotel. Do yourself a favor, pony up a little more and get quality accommodation. The unpleasantries, as other reviewers have mentioned are so numerous and so blatantly obvious it is not worth complaining as the owner/s are fully aware of how disgusting the place is. For starters, I can not figure out if...

The first impression was a pull out couch outside the building, pulled out and looking nasty. Cigarette butts everywhere and a big bucket of Cigarette butts outside the door that smelled so bad every time you walked in and out. The rooms were not cleaned yet when I checked in at 4:00pm (check-In time). Came back at 6:00, and my...

My extended family stayed here for an overnight visit and rented three rooms. One room smelled heavily of smoke, despite being rented as a non-smoking room, and the second smelled of mold. No room changes were allowed because of the level of occupancy, so we had to bring an ionizer and fan into the room and left the hallway door...

Using the term hotel is a bit of a reach, more motel. The location is near Nisswa center, about 2 miles, but that's about it. Decor was 70's, rooms small and the bathroom could hardly fit 2 people standing together. The smoking area, outside was at the back of the site, right by the back entrance where our room was,...

I stayed here for two nights with my family and dog. I arrived into town early by only a couple hours, and they refused to check me in. I have worked at a front desk before at a hotel, and I always checked if the room was clean and ready. If it was, what does it hurt to check someone...
