“Great Stay at the Grand Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were in town for a funeral and found our stay at the Grandstay to be our calm during the storm. Our reason to be in Faribault was stressful by nature and our children were tired, crabby and stressed - Once at the Grandstay the check in process to check out were outstanding, we found the rooms to be spacious and clean and we were very surprised at the quality of hotel for the money! Can't wait to return to the area to enjoy the hotel under better circumstances. As an aside, the breakfast in the morning saved our lives as we were late to be somewhere and our family found something to eat that they all enjoyed, which I'm not sure has ever happened before?? :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2 bedroom room and it was so nice for our family!

This was our second time staying at this hotel. The front desk lady was very nice and knowledgable. We didn't have breakfast or use the pool during our stay. The room was very clean other then the inside of the shower curtain. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. This hotel appears to be very well taken care of as well.

Room Tip: I have stayed on the first floor twice, once on each end and found both ends to be nice and quiet.

We are Carleton parents and anyone familiar with Northfield knows that there are not a lot of options in town, and those quickly fill up. For Family Weekend, we stayed at the Grandstay in Faribault which is about 15-20 minutes south of Northfield. The hotel is on the outskirts of Faribault, so not terribly convenient to restaurants, but otherwise a good option. The hotel staff is friendly, the rooms are large (we had a 2 room suite with kitchen for a very reasonable price), and the hotel has a breakfast room, free hot beverages, a pool, a game room and a "Pantry" which is mostly junk food vending machines. Normally I would not give a place like the Grandstay four stars, but considering the alternatives available, it is one of your better options. There is nothing luxurious about the place (thin towels, low quality toilet paper, etc) but it is clean and relatively new. The breakfast is the typical yogurt, sausage, eggs, do-it-yourself waffles, cereal, toast, etc. Nothing exciting, but fine for grabbing a quick bite before heading out. I will say I got multiple cups of tea and the tea/coffee supplies were always well stocked no matter the time of day or night.

Room Tip: The hotel is really quite apart from town, so I don't think it much matters which room you stay...

We enjoyed our stay at the GrandStay! Very clean and nice. Only complaint is that we didn't have coffee in our room for the morning. We did have 1 reg. single serving of coffee but there were 2 of us so we had to go down to the breakfast room to get some. Would have been nice not to have to do that...surprised housekeeping didn't check on that before finishing the room.

This place is the absolutely best option in the Northfield-at-large area. The rooms are big and very clean. All the rooms are suites which means they come with fridge, micro, and dishwasher! The beds are supper comfortable, even the pull-out bed in the couch and the pillows are soft. The staff is awesome and friendly. This is definitely my first-place option.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel for the past two years. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The suites are always very clean. I believe the bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on in any hotel. I will continue to stay at this particular hotel when visiting MN - cannot beat the price and service. Looking forward to the next time. Thank you Jewel

We had a block of rooms reserved for a family wedding and the hotel was wonderful. The rooms were very clean and modern. The hotel staff was outstanding! I would strongly recommend the hotel to anyone staying in the Faribault area!
