New owners are working hard to make your stay comfortable. I stayed with them for an extended period of time from Dec. 2016 into Jan. 2017 when my home purchase finally closed. The room was clean and there were great places to dine at near the hotel. This is a very good place to stay if you want to experience...

We attended a wedding outside of Balsam Lake so I booked this motel. First of all, I called ahead to see if we could get an earlier check in, just a half an hour, and they said they weren't sure. Ok fine. We got there 20 minutes before check in and the room wasn't ready so we gave them another...

Dear Mz. S, You have our sincerest apologies for those three fairly inexusable points. However, I would like to explain the circumstances surrounding them. As new owners, we experienced a number of malfunctions with our building that was affecting other guests, and required our immediate attention in the hours preceding your checkin. However, in the future, even with twelve-room blocks...

Cigarette smoke - this was VERY notable when I opened the door to our non smoking room. I had to open all the windows to air the room!! The door to this room would not close unless it was slammed loudly which other rooms could all hear. Sometimes you had to slam it three times to close the door because...

You have our apologies for that unpleasant stay. This room has since been completely renovated and resurfaced since we've taken ownership of it, and we now enact a strict-non smoking policy in all of our rooms.

First stop on Great River trip. Good location. Comfortable beds. Very clean. In need of major update but realized there was a for sale sign in front so that probably won't happen soon. Wi fi very spotty. Never could get reception in our room. Stay in ground floor rooms if you don't like steps. The stairs were rather iffy.

We stayed at the Balsam Lake Motel because of its location to our visit for three nights. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable. The blinds on the windows were in need of replacement on several units. The drawers on the bureau were broken and I had to go to a Walmart in a neighboring town to get...

Our apologies for your unpleasant stay. Though it was some years ago - we hope you'll stop by again to see what the new owners are up to. We guarantee that if the shower head goes out - you won't have to pay for it. Evan

We stayed a Saturday night in June. Easy to make reservations by phone. Upon arrival it was 2 blocks from the lake and 3 blocks to "main street". Close but away from noise! Clean parkinglot, well lit, and plenty of parking (even if you have a boat trailer) The rooms are like motels. Park at your door. Not much for...
