The hotel was lovely and in a great location! Most of the staff was very helpful and friendly; especially Laura- a true peach! Breakfast was great and the staff went out of their way to get it ready a tad early before our boys final game on Sunday. Big rooms and great value. The "pool police" could stand to learn...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

DeBlond1, What a great name! Thank you for all your great comments. I'm happy to hear Laura responded to your breakfast needs, she does do a nice job for us and she'll appreciate your acknowledgement. I'm holding you to that promise to return! Thank you for being our guest and good luck through your season. Mark

Very clean, comfortable two queen bed suite with sofa bed. Perfect for family of five. Clean and comfortable with normal wear and tear. We were able to check in two hours early. First floor is in the middle of a remodel, but doesn't affect any guests. Waterpark was never crowded. It's in need of some maintenance, but kept clean. Staff...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you Matt, "Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff" are about the kindest words an old hotel guy can hear. If we weren't blessed to have the staff you encountered none of those would be possible and it's always appreciated when a guest acknowledges them. During October every square inch of our hotel was re-carpeted and to undertake a project of...

This motel looked inviting upon pulling in. Had the log cabin look and looked like it was well kept.When entering lobby,was greeted by a nice young lady. Lobby area was very nicely decorated and had a clean fresh feel to it. Upon walking to our room, were met by several employees who greeted us and seemed like they took pride...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

Tyrone, that review is as good and complete as it gets! We work very hard to see that from the time you enter our parking lot till the time you leave you experience a well kept friendly atmosphere with an outstanding staff. None of what you described can be achieved without the staff you were so nice in describing. They...

Reviewed 20 August 2015

This lodge is a gem. More important than this Comfort Suites' great location, immaculate rustic-looking facility (including a state-of-the art indoor water park) and comfortable bedding, the staff understands the importance of stellar customer service. During our two-day stay, we found that each employee (whether at the front desk/breakfast area, maintenance, preparing rooms or in a managerial position) acted with...

Larry, That's one of the nicest reviews a guest could ever give a hotel! I'm so happy we had a chance to talk and get to know each other a little, I feel like you left with a mutual feeling of friendship and respect. You are definitely a seasoned traveler so a review like this really means a lot to...

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...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

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...

RapidRiverLodge, Owner at Comfort Suites Rapid River Lodge, responded to this review

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.

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.

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 two-room suites are very nice. They have two bedrooms and a living room, with a TV in each room. The sofa in the living room makes into another bed, and the one we had was comfortable.”
