I am a big fan of this hotel chain. Or -- rather -- I USED to be. This particular hotel is obviously one of their OLDEST properties, and is getting a bad review for the following reasons: 1. I booked a non-smoking room, and paid for the room at the time of booking. But there was no non-smoking room available....

The hotel lobby and our non-smoking room smelled horribly of smoke. Booked a King room and got a queen bed. Had to open up the window and crank the air and leave for awhile to make the smell tolerable in the room.

Everything was great. I was a woman traveling alone and felt very comfortable and safe. Service was great and desk clerk could point me in right direction everything was close by. He seemed to know the area well and was a good area to be.

I rate this hotel as poor due to the heavy smell of smoke in all public spaces and that my non-smoking room must have been smoking once. Additionally, the tub's anti-slip coating was flaking off causing my son to loose his balance and slip. I was not happy. The flaking of the anti-slip coating goes with the run down feeling...

My husband and I were in MN from Michigan to see our new grandson and didn't want to bother the new parents by being in their house. We were comfortable in this clean , friendly hotel.

We were greeted by a friendly staff member who helped ensure we got the best rate possible. Our room was comfortable and clean. We stayed at this location here instead of finding a place in the cities as it was just 30 minutes from where we needed to be the following morning.

Hotel is conveniently located in Forest Lake with multiple restaurants, stores nearby, many within walking distance. I have stayed at this location many times over the years for business and it is quiet, affordable, clean, friendly staff.

Overall, stay was fine. Rooms could have been cleaner ( found linen with wads of hair stuck to them and pulled a few towels off the shelf that had stains on them) Staff was not welcoming at all. There was one woman who was very nice and friendly that worked in the morning and the girl at check in was...

We were wanting take our son swimming for his birthday and they met all our needs fabulously! even down to letting us eat in the breakfast area. For our small group it worked out great, and while the building itself was old and smelled of cigarette smoke, the room was updated and fresh, with none of the smell inside it.
