My family and I stayed here because my grandma is in the hospital. We made our reservation directly with Darcy (manager). She was great, Thank you. We will absolutely stay here again. The kids had fun in the pool and the adults had a good time in the restaurant. This hotel went out of its way to accomodate my family....

The staff were great. We could tell that a lot of time had gone into remodeling the hotel since the last time we stayed. The restaurant had a fun atmosphere. It was more expensive since the last time we were there but it was worth the few extra dollars.

Amber is so kind and easy to work with. I was in a situation where a group of us were traveling to Brookings, SD, but unsure of whether we were staying on a Friday night or Saturday night because our event was being rescheduled because of weather. I called to make sure our initial reservation would get canceled so we...

Stayed in room 203. This hotel looks like it may have been run down but they are working hard at updating. My room was huge! And the rates were great! The indoor courtyard with pool was crowded with furniture but it wasn't bad and it must be from rooms they are updating. The pool and hot tub were very clean....

I had been to this hotel in the past, before it was an Econo Lodge. I was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel when I stayed there January 2017. The lobby looks way better, there is a BEAUTIFUL restaurant/bar, and the bedding in the rooms was incredibly comfortable. Probably my most favorite pillows I've ever slept on. Staff was very...

Good place to crash on your way through town. We had a clean basic room, with an outside door. We arrived late, left early. Our cats were welcomed. The mattress was clean, bed comfy. The smell in the room of hotel freshener was eye watering, we opened the door for a while and went to bed. Reasonable priced, and we...

I wouldn't stay there again! First of all there was a smoke smell, the rooms are non-smoking, but evidently the hallway isn't! The paint was peeling in places on the walls & the door. The plumbing is probably the original from the 1980's so it doesn't work the best! There weren't enough electrical outlets so a strip was used where...

Checked into our two queen smoke free room on Friday night. The room stunk so bad, we could not stay. Obviously someone had smoked in the room but there was also some extra "funk" in the room that we could not figure out. After talking to the front desk, we found out that some homeless folks had stayed in the...
