My family and I (with two daughters ages 3 and 7) went to visit Walnut Grove for a couple of days. We stayed at the Lamberton motel because it is the only hotel within 30 miles of Walnut Grove with king size beds, and we wanted that (we like to keep our daughters between us to prevent them from getting out of bed!). It is a small, quaint motel, but very cute and comfortable. We were unexpectedly impressed by the room: great looking bed, rustic looking, the best refrigerator we have ever had at a hotel room (and we have been to many luxury ones), and a shower that works better than the ones we have at home. The motel is owned by a Christian married couple who are absolutely wonderful. I had briefly asked about the quality of the room air conditioner over the phone when I made the reservation, and, when we arrived at our room, we found a very cool room: the motel owner had turned the A/C to maximum cool so that the room was nicely cool when we arrived! That was so nice of the lady! The room also included a microwave and a flat panel television hidden inside an antique armoire. Everything was very clean.
On the second day, when we came back from Walnut Grove, we were surprised to see that they had come to service the room, even making the bed in a beautiful fashion, topping it with one of our children's blankets and a stuffed animal!
The hotel is only 10 minutes away from Walnut Grove, so it was very convenient. I strongly recommend this motel to anybody visiting Walnut Grove or this beautiful area of Minnesota.
