The staff is very friendly and he room was very clean. This is a safe area and we were very happy with our experience. We had our dog and the fees were 30 a night so beware of that. The hotel was easy to get to.

One for the stay itself and one for the customer service. Rooms on the first floor seem huge (thanks to taller than normal ceilings). Bed was firm (as opposed to just "hard"). Desk staff as check-in was "Minnesota nice" (which considering the guests and crowds over the Ryder cup tested everyone's patience). Pool area is great ...with adult hours... The... More

Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful review Keith. We are so happy you had a great stay. Every hotel is different about lost and found policies but we hold items for a full 90 days here. Sometimes it just takes a while to realize something is missing and it looks like that worked for you. We really appreciate you... More

Even the yogurt offered is full of sugar. *Room cleanliness completely blown by the dark stains all... More

Up in Blaine for the NAHL showcase . This hotel is a hidden gem. Not affiliated with the showcase hotels choices but a short 10 minutes from the Schwann super rink. Awesome rooms and. breakfast included. My second year here and if your traveling to this area I highly recommend it.

First the good stuff: The front desk staff was friendly, the pool area was clean and was open late in the evening for adults only to use, the rooms were good size and there was plenty of counter space in the bathroom which is a big deal for me, housekeeping was prompt. Now the bad stuff: the carpeting was dated... More

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled you enjoyed the staff, housekeeping, pool, and room layout. We apologize that you felt the room was worn and found the pillows too soft. There are always extra pillows available at the front desk for free should a guest ever need extra as an option. More
