Blackie, Canada
Reviewed 19 August 2015

This looked like an awesome place for families... The water park looked excellent but we never got a chance to go for a swim. We stayed the night before we did a 12 hour race on the Donnybrook course at Brainerd International Raceway. We had worked all day on the car in the heat so the clean room and shower...

Scott, Thank you for the wonderful review. Twelve hours of racing would send me to a hot shower and bed too! You're right in the fact that families have a ball here in the water park. If you ever have a chance to come back with children, and a little more time, give us a try. Kids make family memories...

This hotel was very comfortable. Queen beds are so nice instead of Double beds ! The room was clean but not spotless.We enjoyed the decor in the room very cute gave it and outdoors feel. The staff was very good and put us in a quiet clean air room. I would stay here again !

Thank you for the nice review. The beds are all new with new linens and both firm and soft pillows, the guest comments have all been wonderful like yours. We are quite different than most franchised hotels as you mentioned with all the rustic, up north decor we put in when we built this property. One of the questions we...

We like this hotel with the lodge feel to it. Beds are comfy, staff is friendly and breakfast is adequate. This time the carpet in the room was very dirty. You could see it needed to be vacuumed with dust at the baseboards and it was yukky to walk on. I walked barefoot from the shower to the bed and...

Good morning SandyFeet. Thank you for taking the time to review us. Since well over 90% of our reviews always mention how clean our rooms are I was genuinely concerned when I read about yours. As you know from being a recent guest that we have been going thru ferocious heat and dewpoints in the tropical 70's for quite a...

I come up to this area several times a year. I have always stayed at this hotel but decided to try a different one this last time. NEVER again!! I am now forever a customer at Comfort Suites. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are always clean. The hallways and rooms are quiet while still remaining family friendly. FREE breakfast...

Jen, Reviews like your's make me very proud to be in the hospitality business and even prouder of a staff that makes stays like yours possible. The beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers with both soft and firm pillows and have really been a hit with our guests. Clean rooms only happen because of the outstanding staff you mentioned....

Reviewed 26 July 2015

We spent two nights at this newer property, en route to a family house further north in Minnesota. The property looked newly renovated. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The water park was surprisingly empty over this holiday weekend. We took full advantage of the water park and spent several hours there. Breakfast was included with the room. The breakfast...

Thank you Brooklyn-Sisters! I'll always take clean and comfortable as the best compliment a guest can pay us. Also a special thank you for "friendly and accommodating" comment regarding our staff. They are a great hard working group and appreciate it when a guest acknowledges them. We are blessed to have each and every one of them. It does surprise...

Sixteen members of our family stayed at the Rapid River Lodge June 25-28. The group consists of people ranging in age from 2-72. We all found things to do that were very enjoyable. The children and young adults liked the water park. Some of us went golfing, and some played miniature golf and went go-carting. Saturday morning we made a...

Lavonne, Thank you or all the kind words. It was obvious to all of us here that your family is very close and you were having a great time together, it was a pleasure to have you.

The bed though not like home,were close. It had a rustic north woods feel. This would be a good family inn. Prices were good but we were there in off peak season. I would definitely recommend it and go back in the future.

Thank you Robert for the great review and all the nice comments. Those beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers and the guest response has been super! I think the four pillows on every bed, both firm and soft, really help to give the the homey type feel. I was happy to hear your family enjoyed it. The family memories...

A very good deal for a mid-range hotel. I decided to stay here instead of at the conference location and saved $30 a night. A good call. The entrance can be a bit confusing on the first try because it is off a side road and shared with a fast food place. But after the first time it is not...

This is one of the best places I have been. A place where we feel at home, with wooden decorations, nice lobby, nice staff. I was there during the week, so no noise problems with young children. Breakfast was good, room was clean, bed was comfortable and internet was reliable and fast.

Saint Paul, Minnesota
Reviewed 16 March 2015

This is way overpriced (~$200/night) for what you get. The beds and linens are very nice and comfortable. But for rates like that, you shouldn't have to make a bed (the pull-out sleeper in the room), you should be able to get water pressure from the shower (ours was gravity powered), you should be able to get hot water (warm...
