I was double charged for my stay. I was charged through Travelocity, but than had a second charge show up for my stay as well. Called the hotel immediately after noticing, and they stated it was just a hold and would go away (although I say that charge as well). But figured I would give it time and see, then I checked recently and they had charged me for the room again. Very disappointed, how many other people have they done this to, and they didn't catch it...

Brett I am so sorry that this was missed. I was not aware of this issue however, I did dig into this and made this right. Again, I apologize for this mix up.

Important to note that this is a SISTER property to Arrowwood in Alexandria! I wasn't aware there were any other Arrowwod properties. This property, in Baxter, is NOT a resort and is not located on/near a lake. I was very suprised when we arrived in Alexandria to learn that our actual reservation was 1.5 away. The hotel does not have a pool; rather in indoor water park. There were tons of kids running the halls at all hours (maybe more noticeable sine we were directly outside the elevator!) On-site 'restaurant' had limited choices, and complimentary breakfast was extremely limited. Rooms were nice, but no fan in bathroom/shower was unpleasant. Overall, just okay and felt it was overpriced given the lack of location and amenities.

I love this place, by far the best for the money. Great rooms and when we’ve stayed in the past we’ve gotten the best complimentary breakfast from the buffet of any hotel anywhere. Because of COVID they were only able to supply a grab and go breakfast this time. This place is our favorite when visiting family in the Brainerd area.

Nice hotel for families wanting to use the water p

My family and I booked 3 rooms there.(all separate paying)We were in town for a funeral. There was a bad snowstorm and I could not make it from the MSP Airport to Brainerd that night. Had to stay in St Cloud. They charged me for that night anyway. After coming from the funeral & checking in for the second night of my 2 day reservation. I had no resolve from the girl that checked me in.So 20 min later I called to speak with the manager.During our conversation she told me she had to leave for an appointment and couldn't talk to me about it until the next day. She was abrasive and curt. Instead of acting helpful she was acting annoyed.No way to treat customers. I wanted to commend the girl I spoke with late on Thursday night but she wouldn't give me her name. That girl was customer-focused. She was trying to move my reservation over a day.

Trip with the kids

I booked a night at a hotel with a Waterpark for the kids day off of school only to arrive and find out park is closed on weekdays. No mention of this on Travelocity website. Waste of time and money. Complete disappointment for us all!

Convenient location to Brainerd Lakes area.

The lodge is close to the lakes and has a nice feature for families with kids......a water park. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable.

Water Park is it!

The Lodge is artfully decorated in Northern MN (surprise!) style. The beds were not comfortable and the pull out sofa bed. Well....what do you except? The redeeming item is the Water Park. My kids had a wonderful time. I enjoyed myself and loved the fact that I could have a nice cool beverage and food while watching.
