    Pool availability. Cleanliness. Friendliness and helpfulness of staff

    Breakfast claims gluten free items, but not very many. Hard to get a good breakfast for gluten free family member. Breakfast staff not very knowledgable.

    Room was quiet and clean. Lady making breakfast was friendly and very hardworking.

    Check in was very slow. Breakfast room was a nightmare, way to small.

    Has all the facilities a traveler needs. Walking distance to a grocery store. Clean and quiet (our room faced the interstate yet noise was not an issue.) Great shower.

    I used the laundry machines while at this BW. It would have been so helpful to know how much time the washer and dryer each would take - a sign maybe? When I asked the front desk staff "how long?", I got no help; in fact, I saw such a puzzled look that I'm not sure this person even knew there was a washer/drier available for guests.....

    Superb

    Staff is polite and helpful. Breakfast choices and cleanliness of dining area were first-rate. Accommodations were also clean.

    A/C was noisy, rattling and buzzing. Plus, blower speed seemed inadequate. Rather unusual since the same unit is used in other inns we stayed in and they all worked fine. (Is Amana the only maker of HVAC units for inns?)

    The lady who over saw the breakfast area was great.

    Breakfast offerings were okay, coffee was fair.

    the staff was excellent making sure we had all that we needed to have a great stay....informed us of the breakfast hours and pool hours. We rented the meeting room for our family Christmas. the room was clean...staff made sure we had the beverages that had been promised and they checked the trash so it was not overflowing. Family enjoyed our time together...had plenty of space ...with countertop to use our crockpots...would use this room again if the opportunity arises! We were leaving early in the morn...after a snow storm had passed...the clerk in the morning volunteered to help us dig out if we needed help...great staff! We loved the choc. chip cookies too! :-)

    Very good

    We have stayed in this hotel several times in the last year, while travelling between Albuquerque, NM and Calumet, MN. It is a pleasant experience and the staff is always very pleasant.

    Reaching the hotel at night is a nightmare. especially when you are like me and can become confused about the directions. Easy to find in daylight but it took me over an hour to find it at night. I just kept circling around.

    Very friendly and helpful

    We requested a 1 st floor for my husband and was told no problem. But when arrived not available got to upper floor and key card doesn't work go back to desk and wrong key card we did have a bottom floor. Also poop in the pool. But staff was apologetic, helpful, friendly

    The desk staff was great! Room was clean - whole hotel was clean - parking was great - even being close to the highway, we never really heard the traffic!

    The breakfast server acted like she didn't want to be there Easter morning - breakfast food took forever - we ate in shifts. The pillows on the bed were atrocious - there was a bunch of them but every one of them was lumpy & uncomfortable.
