Willows on the River
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Lake City
Reviewed 10 June 2013

I was on the south leg of a motorcycle trip from KC to Lake Superior and it started to rain. I noticed the sign and pulled in asking about a room. We negotiated a far price for the night. When I got to the room I was surprised to see it was a two bed condo.

The entire place was very nice and very clean. I really enjoyed staying there.

Having a deck was a treat. I was able to have a few beers and watch the world go by.

I stayed at a sister property that was a little closer to downtown. That property had a garage that I welcomed because of all the rain.

For the past four years our family has gathered on the 29th of December to celebrate Christmas. The accommodations are great!!! Then on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day two other couples join us to bring in the New Year with fun and flurry! We find the staff, owners, and everyone involved to be very helpful (we always need an extra long table and extra chairs), cheerful, and professional. I don't know how long we will keep spending our holidays in this way, but hopefully a long long time!!!

Room Tip: Any room is pretty darn good, but we like the upper level rooms.

We docked our boat overnight from the Mississippi River to this hotel. We were surprised at how big the rooms were. We didn't bring foods to make meals, but the kitchen in each room (we had several rooms), had everything you would need to make meals. All rooms face the water. Each room was very well thought out and so beautiful.

We stayed in Willows on the river unit #2. It was large than we needed but we wanted a king size bed and this had it. It's a 2 bedroom unit, both rooms with king size beds. One bedroom/bathroom was on the 2nd floor with a balcony. We didn't use that room. The main floor had a bathroom, kitchen/dining, living room and bedroom and washer/dryer in a closet off the entry. The bed was a foam type and very comfortable. Nicely decorated. Flat screen TV in the living room and each of the bedrooms. I also picked up wifi. There was also a patio with furniture, table & chairs looking over the lake. Great view of the lake. What a wonderful way to watch the sunrise. This is a really nice place. Quiet, relaxing, just what we were looking for. There is a pool and hottub available, but I didn't get a chance to use it. Need more time!!! We would definately come back here. Lake City is a nice friendly town.

Room Tip: Unit #2 would work nicely for 2 couples. It could also easily accomodate 2 couples with kids. Fold...

Wanted a getaway that was not that far from the Twin Cities. I wanted to be on the water so this met both needs. Stayed in a 2nd floor condo with unbelievable views. Full Kitchen ang great restaurant attached right onthe property. The riverwalk in 2.5 miles and takes you right along Lake Pepin. No Taxi's in town but, that didn;t stop us. Fun night life and there is a $15 river boat cruise that takes you down the MN side and back up the WI side. 90 minute cruise with bar and snacks available. I didn't want to leave! Highly recommend it.

Spent 3 nights at the Willows in a 2nd floor, 1 bedroom unit. Unit was very spacious with large bathroom, walkin closet (with washer/dryer) and nice kitchen open to the living room. Appliances seemed new. Floor to ceiling windows made you feel like you were right over the water. The views of Lake Pepin are extraordinary. Would recommend the Willows for those looking for space, privacy and great views.

Room Tip: 2nd floor unit with small balcony was great. You can hear some noise from the unit above you.

This place is wonderful, we had a delighful time, we come every year and the staff couldnt be more friendly or helpful. We will definitely be back. Lovely sunrise, and very good coffee for a hotel!
Makes me want to stay longer. Came with several friends on a boat and already have my reservation for next year.

Room Tip: Dont get the room over the restaurant and bar it can get noisy.
