The property is older, but everything is always in working order. They try to improve things. For example, they recently got new pool towels and I saw a worker filling the "automatic" ice machine with ice. I thought that was thoughtful. Usually when ice machines are broke they are broke.

This property has consistently had a working hot tub, sauna, swimming pool and fitness center. The property itself is old, but they are able to maintain these features.

Very outdated. Great staff. Old Best Western. Needs a renovation bad! It was like going to a hotel in the 1980’s.

We often stay at this hotel when we go hiking at Devil's Lake. Without fail the hot tub, sauna, and swimming pool have always been working. The hotel also has a complete gym in the basement. It is older and there are many cracked tiles in the swimming pool area. For the most part, it is okay for a night. They even had new fluffy towels this trip.

When the weather outside is very cold, this hotel keeps the heat on. The pool, hot tub and sauna were all in good working condition. They do need to replace some tiles though on the floor. We have stayed at this place several times now and all the facilities are working. The carpet is dated and it is not sparkling clean, but nonetheless okay for the price paid.

We go to hotels in order to use hot tubs. This is the second time we have stayed at this place and the hot tub, sauna and swimming pool were all in good working condition. The hotel needs some general repairs, but for the most part we are happy with this hotel when all we are looking for are some good soaks at a reasonable price.

Staff is nice. The room is big. The carpet is old with some stains on it. The place is quiet, walking distance to Walmar. Parking lot is huge and easy.

convenient location

We go to hotels in order to use hot tubs. This is the second time we have stayed at this place and the hot tub, sauna and swimming pool were all in good working condition. The hotel needs some general repairs, but for the most part we are happy with this hotel when all we are looking for are some good soaks at a reasonable price.
