“Worse experience ever”
Reviewed 27 March 2011

We checked into this motel because the rates were the lowest. I guess the saying "You get what you pay for" is true in this case. The beds were uncomfortable and every time you moved the whole bed moved and springs were in your back. We traveled for a seminar that my husband attended while I stayed at the motel. Our daughter and new grandson would come and spend the day and into the evening with us. We received a phone call from the grumpy old guy that was there stating that our guests needed to leave. My husband informed him that she was visiting and he stated that she had to leave right then That visiting was only for an hour. If they stated longer it was a stay. We told him that we would be checking out the next day. Next day we checked out and wanted the refund (as we had paid for 2 weeks), he charged us $10.00 for our daughter. The sheets were stained. They were not friendly, staff or the guy at the desk. Not sure if he was the owner/manager or what. I would strongly discourage anyone from staying there. Breakfast was worthless and old jelly was being served. Stayed in non-smoking as neither one of us smoke and there was smoking across the hall so every day when you walked out of the room you could smell it.

Reviewed 7 September 2010

We recently spent 3 nights at this motel. The draw was that it was the only motel in town that allowed pets. As it turned out, friends took our pets , but we kept the reservation.
The room was quite generic. The door did not close tightly unless it was slammed shut; a quality we discovered only after returning from being away and finding the door to our room ajar. The carpets were stained and dirty, the towels were stained and rough. The bed springs would ping and groan at every turn throughout the night. There are no hair dryers or irons in the rooms, you had to go to the desk and sign them out.
The owner was a cranky little fellow who was most ungracious, never smiled or returned a greeting. It was the only place in town to stay, but I'll drive to Owatonna or Mankato rather than repeat this experience.
