Nice clean room and comfortable beds. Breakfast was OK. When I checked in, I asked about a swimming pool. He said they didn't have one but gave me the phone number of the other hotel in town that did. He seemed genuinely concerned that I get the accommodations I wanted. I would stay here again.

Gentleman was very friendly at check-in, but that was the highlight of the stay! Very old hotel and the furnishings are probably original to the hotel. We would have been just fine with this if it had been clean. However, it was not even close. The dust on the headboard was probably original too! Final straw came when we layed...

We got into town close to midnight and didn't have a place to stay. The clerk was very friendly and had us in a room within minutes. The bed was very comfortable, the carpet clean, and the overall room condition was very clean. The room is a little outdated, but we didn't need anything fancy. We wanted clean and comfortable...

This hotel was everything we needed as a family of four. Two clean queen sized beds, TV, refrigerator, and microwave. The bathroom fixtures were a little outdated, but clean and functional. The beds were very comfortable, so we all got a great night's rest. We will be staying here again if we ever have the need to overnight in Waseca.

I would rate this a zero if you could go that low, but then again, we didn't sleep here. Checked in, the lady was very nice. Went to the room, and within 5 minutes we captured a bed bug on the wall... saw 4 more scurry out the door frame. We immediately packed up, went to the check -in lady,...

This is an old style motel with very basic services. Our two rooms were at top of stairway so was quite noisy. No elevator for second floor guests. Plan on going out for breakfast as continental breakfast so little or nothing. staff was friendly and helpful. Since there is little choice in motels for Waseca, this one will have to...

6 of us needed a hotel for NYE celebration so we booked king rooms for $52 plus tax. Very reasonable. The heat worked, bathrooms stocked and clean. Beds super comfortable. The breakfast was nothing to brag about but for the price it was sufficient. Would for sure stay there again!

I was a little leery after reading some reviews here. We stayed overnight for a wedding. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable...No frills type of place for a very good price.

making the reservation was a disaster. i couldn't understand a single thing the man on the phone was saying. the only thing that was clear to me was my reservation number and the price. when checking in the front desk lady was polite and told us over and over that if we had any concerns or comments that we should...
