I pretty sure this was an AmericInn once upon a time. Not the fanciest place but very functional and certainly me all of my needs. Nice swimming pool area. Great for kids. Good location and there are a lot of restaurants close by. Right off of I-35 and only about 35 miles south of the MOA. Downtown Faribault is also...

This was our second stay here. Very nice. The rooms are quiet. You can't hear the neighbors or the upper floor. Good breakfast, hot items that change daily. Well kept and clean. Very nice staff! We will be back.

The staff was friendly and helpful. In a wedding so harder for me to check in. They were accommodating and allowed me to have another person check in for us. Very helpful. The room was fairly nice and spacious. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was also very nice and fit all different tastes. Hot foods and cold for breakfast....

Came for my sister's funeral, and this hotel was perfect for our needs. The price was affordable, and the location was was ideal. We stayed in a first floor handicap room, which was very roomy and comfortable for hubby & I, and our 2 teenage daughters. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and the room was VERY clean. We...

We visited with a group (St. Cloud Antique Auto Club - Pantowners) the weekend of Oct 7-9. We had a very enjoyable stay with wonderful service and accomodations. Thanks for accommodating our large group.

This hotel was obviously built a long time ago, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the 50's to early 60's. The architecture looks it. The internet is horrible, I wasn't able to connect to the wifi to do any work. The furniture is an eclectic mix of early 80's to early 90's brass fixtures and oak furniture with the...

Maybe I need to lower my expectations as there aren't many options in Faribault but the Boarders Inn is very basic. Best high-light is the happy hour where you can get 2 free beers between 6pm and 8 pm.

For this price point it was a very good hotel. Very clean rooms and common areas. Plenty of towels in pool area. Only complaints is that pool area is somewhat dark at night. Also the breakfast has some off brand items i.e. yogurt. Tasted OK but watery compared to a brand like Dannen, and sausage had a funny (mushy) texture....

It has been years since I have stayed at a hotel this bad. Old dirty rooms. Considered buying bug spray. Poor customer service. Horrible breakfast. No wi-fi service. Old towels in the room. Old shower. Wasting water with lousy shower head. Not a very green property. Feels like going back in time about 30 years. I DO NOT recommend this...
