Guest reviews for Gopher Prairie Inn

1 out of 5

This place is a dive... worst customer service ever!

To start, this place lost my reservation. Fortunately, I had printed out my confirmation letter. They did not have the room we had reserved anymore, so my 17 year old son had to share a king bed with his mom. Not what we had hoped for. No apologies for the mix-up given, either. Room was dirty, whole place was not kept up, found a small centipede crawling in the bathroom! Was so tired, I didn't go with my instinct and leave. Shower had a cement floor! When I went to check out in the morning, the clerk said they were charging us extra (!) because we had two people and the website price I had been charged was "wrong". I told him the website said there was no additional charge for children 0-17, but he said it was only for 0-13. I could not believe he would not honor the website price!!! Said he didn't mknow anything about that and I would have to talk to the owner in two days! He charged extra to my credit card without my permission! Unbelievable. I will fight this. This place gives "Mom and Pop" motels a bad name.

Gpher Prairie Motel Sauk Centre, MN

Very clean, basic motel. Handy to I-94 and to downtown Sauk Centre (about 5 blocks). Everything worked, bed comfortable, quiet. Would stay there again. Housekeeping a little TOO thorough -- they put my personals items away, folded my underware, etc.
