    « Wonderful Stay for Blaine Schwan Events »

    Great hotel with large suite rooms that is located right next to the Schwan Center. Location is excellent and the staff is amazing. Great breakfast as well. Internet was fast and reliable. Rooms have an extra sitting area with a full sized pull out couch. Hotel location has restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. Very nice to be out of town and not driving around looking for things since everything is right there.

    « Great Place to Stay for Tournaments at National Sports Center »

    Rooms were clean and modern. Staff was great. Pool and games room for the kids during down time. The included breakfast was great. There are plenty of dining options near by and the sports center is less than 5 minute drive from hotel.

    « Above and Beyond »

    Our stay at the Best Western - Blaine- MN was superb. All staff members were helpful, kind, personable and accommodating. The young lady at the from desk - went above and beyond to make sure our stay was pleasant. The room was clean- the breakfast was good - and the facility was nicely decorated. I would recommend this hotel - not only for cleanliness and value - but also the customer service provided.

    Love love love this hotel! Beautiful room, and amazing staff. I stayed here the night before my wedding with 4 other girls in the 2 bedroom suite and all of us were in shock at how wonderful the room was. It's close to everything. I plan to stay here again in the future.

    « Hiccups »

    I've been to this hotel a few times but can't figure out for the life of me why they can't get things right! I was there on a weekend when there were lots of weddings so I understand being busy but my room was freezing and I got no response at all. The toilet kept having issues, no maintenance. Towel bar was broken, no one fixed it. They had a difficult time keeping up with towels at the pool. It seems to me they need additional staff on the busy weekends. One person can't do it all and do it well.

    « Kids Birthday Party »

    I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, room 229. The second bedroom was very cold. There was no heat coming in , other then a after market 6 inch duct through the wall coming off the main heater in the room. I could feel cold air coming through the window. Comforter was very thin. Wi Fi was not very strong, no Wi Fi at all in the pool area.

    « Beautiful rooms. Great price. »

    I used Best Western Plus for my wedding, We had some bumps in the road in the planning process, but BWPlus did everything in their power to make it right and I was very satisfied. We had a maintenance problem the night of our stay, and the night manager was wonderful. Dennis Gumke was wonderful! Very nice.

    « Nice stay and very affordable »

    Had a nice stay in Blaine, MN. I played a round of golf at TPC Twin Cities. The hotel is very near the golf course. Best Western upgraded my stay at no additional cost. The hotel was very nice, clean, and spacious. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I recommend staying at this hotel.

    « Military friendly, very welcoming and helpful staff! »

    My family and I were moving to the area due to a military move. We ended up staying in the hotel for 2 weeks while we found a new house. The hotel crew was nice and always took time to say hello and talk to my wife and kids to make the stay more enjoyable, almost like staying with family. The morning breakfasts were better than most hotels I've ever stayed in. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area!

    Our stay at Best Western was awesome! Right from checking in to end of our stay, it was a pleasure dealing with front desk and all other staff. Our room was new and so clean and cozy...made our stay very enjoyable and comfortable! We wouldn't stay anywhere else if coming back for a visit.

    « Wonderful and accommodating!! »

    I traveled here with my family and was incredibly pleased with my stay. I have 3 children and they absolutely loved the arcade room as well as the pools!!!! Everywhere in this hotel was clean and updated. The rooms were just amazing and my whole family couldn't have been happier with our stay. My husband enjoyed the fitness center and they had a HUGE breakfast that had more selections than most hotels offer. Location was very handy and the staff is friendly and helpful. Will recommend this hotel to friends and family for sure.

    « Great room and service »

    Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Check in was quick and easy. There is parking all around the hotel but vehicles with trailers or large vehicles (e.g. moving vans) might have trouble finding space if the hotel is full. It was at 1/3 capacity when I checked in so plenty of parking space was available. Best Western has a great rewards program if you have their credit card as well and they will match elite status with other hotel chains.

    « Wedding »

    I used this hotel for myself and wedding guests. It was a nice hotel with plenty of options for breakfast. The bridal suite is very nice and we received complementary Champaign from the hotel for our wedding. My guests and I took advantage of the shuttle service. The general manager was very nice. Only hiccup in the road was the hotel had gone through at least 3 people who were in charge of group blocks so every time I would need to make a change nothing ever got changed or completed. Thankfully the last person who I had talked to took care of the issues that the others didn't. A few of the front desk staff members came across as annoyed when I talked with them mainly the ladies, I don't not have names because that was the least of my worries on my wedding day.

    « Great Hotel/Awful Coffee »

    The hotel was wonderful. It was clean and the beds were great. The coffee offered at breakfast was instant coffee. It was undrinkable. We had to get in the car to find coffee. My advice: Ditch the coffee dispenser and brew your coffee.

    Overall a very nice stay at the Best Western at Blaine, MN. The staff was excellent--very friendly and helpful. We were there to attend a wedding, and everyone there for the event was impressed by how accommodating everyone was. We even had use of a private room for breakfast! We would definitely stay there again.

    « Not up to par »

    It's a good hotel in a convenient location. The staff is friendly and anxious to please. Unfortunately they had plenty of opportunities to try. I won't cover the details since I provided the hotel manager with a complete listing but there were a number of items which required fixing. And we are talking about non-traditional things going wrong. Hopefully our visit was an anomaly and your stay will go smoother.

    Hotel was very nice. Decorated nice. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was displayed well and always full. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    It started with Genni helping Me with my reservation, She was AWESOME! She was the most helpful, very friendly, who had a great attitude and terrific personality! I cant say enough about her and My experience that would do her justice. I will always be a customer because of her and hope others get to experience the complete customer satisfaction that I received. Thank You! Also adding to My terrific stay were John and Matthew who are number 1 professionals at there job and treated Me like royalty. They were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Thank You Again, Genni, John, Matthew, You're The BEST! I highly recommend staying here, Matter of fact, I had a opportunity to stay at 5 star hotel in Boston and decided to stay at a Best Western Plus solely because of these 3 employees and my experience at there hotel.

    Worked for purposes. Tight quarters. Good pool area. Not a lot of restaurants close by and so no walking to eat. Very small parking lot and the overflow goes into the business lot next door. Not sure what they do during the weekday.

    We checked into another hotel on Sunday evening because it was reserved for us through a national sports site and it was horrible (dirty, bug infested with terrible beds) . Went over to the Best Western Monday morning and they helped us out. It was clean and bright with wonderful beds and great service,

    « Fabulous Hotel and Great Value for the Rate »

    This hotel is fabulous for families and groups on sporting events. We stayed here for a week as part of a sports group and liked it so much we stayed on for a couple days after while visiting in the area. We stayed at several hotels in the area during our visit to Minnesota and could not find one anywhere near this one in terms of staff hospitality and value for money. Rooms are great for families and they have a sofa bed. We felt safe at this hotel and the breakfast staff are so nice! They even put out an extra waffle maker and all day all night cereal and milk for all the kids on soccer teams that were visiting which was greatly appreciated. Restaurant is right next door to Culvers a good quality fast food place that the kids and parents loved and that is open late. Staff and the General Manager go out of their way to help you with any concerns you might have and are so patient with all the kids running around during a huge group stay for the USA Cup. Target right next door. Highly recommend!!

    Very clean and appealing hotel, LARGE room (2 queens with a sofa area) - the hotel and room decor were well done. The breakfast selections were adequate. The hotel grounds were very well kept. I would definitely recommend this hotel - it was pricier than a regular Best Western.

    « Weekend Wedding »

    We stayed because our son was in a wedding in Ham Lake. The hotel was clean and comfortable. When we checked in the receptionist was friendly and helpful. The only complaint is that the shampoo dispenser was broken. Housekeeping came to fix it 3 times but didn't have the right tools and/or parts. It was never fixed in 3 days with 3 different interruptions while we were trying to get ready for the wedding. They also didn't refill coffee so we had to get it from the lobby. Small inconveniences that wouldn't keep us from visiting again.

    I was very impressed by this Best Western. The hotel had been renovated a couple of years ago and they did a very good job. The decor was modern, beds were comfortable. The bathroom was private and quite large with a large vanity area. The air conditioner was quiet and did not wake me during the night going on and off. The breakfast was very good with the same choices everyday for the hot items, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in this area.

    « Breach of Contract-they cancel rooms after payment received! »

    booked room at the Best Western Plus Blaine on May 15, 2016 for June 2 and June 3, 2016, PAID with points. points were taken out of our account immediately when we made the reservation. I have copy of points that were withdrawn) Therefore we had a contract. (Reservation/Payment confirmed) 10 Days after paying/reserving room, On May 25, 2016, at 4:25 pm, we were contacted by the hotel staff canceling our room. When the reservation was cancelled that was a Breach of Contract by the Hotel. The hotel tried to find us another hotel, but only other Best Westerns would have been 45 min to an hour from our destination each day, that was too far. We had to pay more for the hotel we had to book to be within the same distance as the Best Western was (20-25 Min) than we did at the Best Western. We were out of pocket an addition $288.00 approximately than we would have been if we could have kept our room at the best western. They told us we could stay the first nite of our reservation which was Thursday, but not Friday nite--they had a flood and someone else had the room that nite. Now, I do not understand if we had the room how someone else could have it also? We made and PAID for these reservations 10 days before we were contacted and our room cancelled by the Hotel, not by us. We were scrambling trying to find another hotel for those dates that took pets and that was also a comparable distance (not further) I contacted hotel and owner directly by phone, email and US mail and have not heard from them. It has been over 22 days with no response. This was not a vacation trip, it was a specific destination and we had to travel/stay on those dates. We are out of pocket $288, MORE than we were with Best Western. Be wary that they don't cancel your room and leave you in a bind.

    « Breach of Contract- »

    We made reservations and they took our points for payment. Ten days after making the reservation they called and cancelled it. They told us we could stay the 1st day, but not the 2nd day. They said there was a flood. They did try to find us another hotel, but the others would have been approximately 46 min to an hour away from where we had to be in the Friday evening 5:00 traffic. To get a hotel in a comparable distance it costs us appx 288.00 more than it would have at the Best Western. We were not very happy since this was the first time we had been able to pay with points and this was how we were treated. I asked did they cancel our reservation just because we used points. The manager said no, he had reservations that had been made before ours (again--we made ours 10 days before they cancelled) And why could we stay the 1st day of our reservation (a Thursday) and could stay on Monday--but not Sat/Sunday...

    « Great location & staff »

    We recently spent 2 nights at the hotel. Very convenient (walking distance) to the National Sports Center. The rooms and the public areas were exceptionally clean, and decor is both modern & appealing. We had a 3 month old with us & the staff was extremely accommodating of the need to have breast milk frozen & offered to put it in their freezer. They were very happy to provide us with the little extras we needed. Breakfast was included, with a good variety of options including fruit, cereals, eggs, bacon, waffles & pastries. As well hot beverages were available throughout the day & there is a well stocked snack bar (not free) both in the main lobby. Definitely family friendly, and there are nearby dining and shopping options in the immediate area.

    « Great Location, Beautiful Room, Noisy Floor »

    Despite the beautiful lobby, comfortable/lovely room, and welcoming staff, I could hear conversations and knocking of doors in our hallway from midnight through 5 am keeping me awake. The hallways, elevator, and stairways were littered with beer bottles and cans on our way to breakfast and checkout Sunday morning (8:30 am). I am not likely to stay at this hotel again unless I first ask the desk staff if there is a likelihood of similar activities happening in the evening.

    « What a pleasant treat!! »

    I was passing through Blaine, MN on Day 3 of a six-day trek across the country. I had always wanted to visit the Aveda headquarters so I checked to see what hotels were nearby to spend the night in. Apparently I chose the nicest Best Western I've ever seen! Jessi was very friendly and welcoming. She set me up in a beautiful huge corner King room, complete with a jetted tub! What a treat after 3 long, cold, windy and rainy days on the road. I can't even tell you the last time I had a hot bath. Definitely worth it right there! The hotel is quite trendy and the suite itself is extremely clean and quiet. I have never been so impressed with a room before! Looking forward to spending a day relaxing in luxury. So pleased to have discovered this gem! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    This hotel was very clean and the staff goes out of their way to assist you. The hotel rooms were clean and everything was like new.

    « Wonderful staff, CLEAN with a great location! »

    Our hockey team participated in the Stick It To Cancer Hockey Tournament the weekend of April 15-17, 2016 and we all stayed at this hotel. It was so nice! Completely updated, clean and the staff was very helpful. The hotel's location is close to several places you may need, whether it's places to eat and a Target less than a mile away. My boyfriend and I had our little dog along so it was very nice that this was a pet-friendly hotel. One of their front desk staff, Jessi, was very helpful and knowledgable when answering my questions and even offered to look up a dog park for us. And for those of you who travel with your pets, I saw that the hotel offered plastic poop baggies for their guests on each side of the hotel so you can pick up after your pet. Very helpful since I forgot to bring our plastic poop bags. We stayed in room 209 which had a king-sized bed and a pull out sofa which was spacious and clean. No issues at all. The only problem we did encounter (NOT the hotel's fault) was the people who were staying above us. They were loud, lots of stomping and running; it was disruptive enough that I had to call the front desk around 11:30 pm Friday night to report it. The gentleman that answered at the front desk went up to investigate it and within 5 minutes, the noise stopped. Unfortunately, the noise went on all weekend but we weren't in our room that much from Saturday to Sunday. Again, not the hotel's fault. Our team ended up playing in the championship on Sunday afternoon at 12:30 pm, which is after their normal check out time. We couldn't bring our dog into the arena and we would never leave her in the car, so I phoned the front desk on Saturday evening to request a late checkout so we could leave the dog in our hotel room while we played our 12:30 pm game. The manager, Genni, was so nice. When I explained to her our dilemma with the dog, she didn't hesitate to give us a late check out. This was a **huge** relief to my boyfriend and me. If she hadn't allowed us to check out later than normal, my boyfriend would've been forced to miss my game because he would've had to either walk the dog around the outside of the arena (can't bring the dog into the arena) or drive around while we played. I encountered at least 5 different staff members during our stay and every one of them were professional and pleasant. I was very impressed with this hotel (and I'm somewhat of a hotel snob) and I'm looking forward to staying their next year!

    Dennis, Jessie, Jenny and Matthew all went went above and beyond in making sure our family was well taken care of during our 10 day stay here. They have become part of our extended family. Housekeeping Staff and Roxy had our room immaculate and ALL showed prompt and couteous service with a friendly attitude. We recommend this hotel to anyone and plan to come back. Hot Tub and pool were clean with plenty of towels. Even had a designated area we could take our service animals! How cool is that! You guys Rock! Thank You so much!

    « Great hotel & wonderful staff! »

    We stayed with our puppy in a king suite and it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. We stayed during the week so it wasn't very busy. I am very picky when it comes to hotels and I would have to say this is one of the best that I have stayed at and it wasn't outrageously expensive. I will be going back to this hotel in the future!

    « Pet Friendly »

    I travel to this area with my dogs often. They have nice rooms and are pet friendly. In the dog walking area they have bags and a trash can, so the area stays neater than other pet friendly hotels in the area. Hockey kids stay here and can get noisy but the front desk will address it if you ask.

    « A few horrible staff »

    I had stayed here, I went down to breakfast and there where two men down there working. They did not seem friendly at all and looked very upset. Not a way to show good customer service. I grabbed my coffee and left because I was not about to sit around and watch some younger man and some older man be all grumpy in the morning not OK! Also, I will have to say that during my stay I had one AMAZING housekeeper come to my room I think her name was Mallory, gosh what a great lady she was the only reason why I didn't complain to front desk about those two guys! She did such a good job in my room I loved her spunk, and personal touch to my room! I love her smile! She is a keeper at this hotel! I will make sure my next stay I will see if she is working or I will NOT even dare come back!!!!!!! Give her some praise!!!!!!!!! Good job Lady!!!!! Keep up the hard work you guys probably never get enough!!!!!! The room was amazing!!!!! However boy better fix some crabby pants that work there!!!!

    « Poor basic service »

    Staff did not seem prepared for number of people booked for our venue. Short on breakfast supplies, no towels for pool, poor shuttle service. Asked for express checkout, didn't get it. Computer shut down so I could not get a receipt

    « Excellent! »

    The fumes from having our floors refinished were too much to sleep in, so at the last minute we contacted this hotel because it is near our kids' school and my husband's work. Because of the late hour and our circumstance, they didn't require a full booking over the phone - they just walked me through the options and then held the room we needed. The staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. The hotel was attractive and clean both on the outside and the inside. The modern decor was a lot of fun. Our room was very spacious, with comfortable places for all four of us to sleep. The breakfast was tasty and filling, and at a great time so that my kids were able to be well-fed before I took them to school. The pool was very comfortable and the hot tub was actually hot, which was a fun way to relax on a school night - a nice treat! The hotel is right next door to a Culver's so we enjoyed dinner, and later treats there. There is also a Target not quite a block away. We didn't use it, but it was nice to know it was there just in case. The internet worked wonderfully. We could all be on our devices with no problem, while enjoying cable TV. The kids were able to get their studying done and still have some fun. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    What a fantastic hotel! Very courteous staff! The family was welcomed at the desk and they help a fellow family out when the heat in their room stopped. Maintenance was there in no time. A great hotel overall! The kids enjoyed the pool and arcade. The breakfasts were also delicious!

    « Thermostats Dont Work »

    If you stay at this hotel, plan on the thermostats not working, and the internet was horrible. We froze the first night after they said they would send someone to fix it. The internet keeps dropping you, so if you plan on working from your room, better have a hot spot.

    Very clean and modern rooms. Good looking hotel. Hot breakfast in morning. Comfortable beds. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Would definitely stay here again. There was a barking dog and crying baby in room above me in the early morning. Cant help that though I guess. Wish I could have brought my dog!!

    « Beautiful and functional rooms »

    Loved the décor in our King suite; had a nice dressing table with outlet just outside bathroom. Very spacious, and included fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. Bed very comfortable. Free internet and free parking. Close to sports center (we were there for gymnastics competition). Only down side was one of the elevators out of order and hot tub not working the night we were there. Breakfast was good.

    « Stayed before? Try it again . . . »

    I have stayed at this property many times in the past 4 years. Very close to the Schwans Rinks for hockey. It has always been a good location but was a bit run down before. It looks AMAZING now! New decor in and out. New flooring, updated breakfast area. I was impressed. There was also new management - nice but still working thru some change over issues. Overall good experience for our team.

    Great hotel, conveniently located. Clean rooms, nice staff and very pet friendly. Dog area has bags for clean up and a trash can so the area stays clean. Located next to Culvers, Gander Mountain just behind it and Target about 2 blocks away

    I was treated very poorly at this hotel. The front desk was very rude to me and had no respect what so ever. I thought it would be nice to stay at but I will not stay here again. They didn't treat me good the whole time I was here. Veryy disappointed.

    « Bad Service »

    My experience with this Hotel was not good. They were rude and disrespectful to my girlfriend. Even though I was a part of a larger group for a wedding they did not give me group rate. When my girlfriend tried to check in they would not let her. Even thought i had put her name on reservation and put my card down. They forced her to put her name down and change it to her. So she ended up paying. Over all just not good. I will avoid this Hotel in the future especially with other good options close by.

    « Great Hotel for the money »

    This hotel was very accommodating to our Hockey team...it was a nice treat to have a hotel welcome a team. The facility was clean and well run...an overall good value. Location is perfectly located near National Sports Center and many restaurants. Really appreciated the hot breakfast.

    « Quiet & Clean - recently remodelled »

    I stayed here with my son for a hockey tournament in the fall of 2015. It was a group booking of about 15 families, scattered between three floors. Breakfast: The included breakfast was your usual continental, but with some notable differences. There was your waffle maker, but there was also a pancake maker! The hot food selection was also nice... Sausages, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns (grated), and one day was biscuits and gravy. The coffee was also excellent. The only issue we had was the placement of the coffee machine. It was next to the hot entree's (popular area) which was in the corner. The creamers were fine where they were, but the sugar and such was on the wall next to the hot food section. It seemed like every time you went for a coffee you were battling around people getting their hot food. Hopefully that's something that they can easily modify. Pool/Arcade: Decent size for a hotel... had a small wading pool for the little ones. Hot tub was actually hot and a decent size. Pool area was clean. The arcade on site was clean and in a separate room. Rooms: You can tell they've recently updated. Everything was new or refreshed. Room was clean and definitely comfortable. Large screen tv, microwave and mini-fridge. Bathroom was clean, decent water pressure and hot water. The spacious room also had a small couch/table area. The beds had brand new linens/pillows and you could tell the mattress was also brand new. We could hear pounding from the room upstairs, but no noise transferred through the walls. Service: Check-in was a breeze. No issues with keys not working all weekend. Maid service was friendly and efficient. The only issue we had was when we wanted to gather as a group in the evening. There really wasn't a place we could go. They would not allow us to sit in the breakfast area, and they advised that they could let us into the conference room, but there would be a charge and we would have to vacate by 10 anyways. I understand the viewpoint of the hotel of attempt to curtail evening functions for various reasons, but it's frustrating when you're looking to keep things quiet and willing to stay in one area to limit noise transference. We were eventually allowed to congregate in the lobby area. The staff was polite through the entire conversation - no issue with them, just with policy. Location: 2 mins from Schwan rinks, in the same parking lot as a Culvers. 2 seconds to pretty much all shopping and food choices you'd like. So great location. Wifi: The FREE wifi was kind of sketchy... Fair amount of disconnects that was noticed by more than myself. Perhaps a few wi-fi extenders are in order. Overall stay: Very enjoyable, would stay again if the price was right. We did get a great rate going through the hockey tournament of $99/night for double queens. A friends team is there in early January for $169/night for the same room.

    « Obvious closest place for NSC events »

    Was at the NSC for a sports show and booked this hotel due to its convenience. More expensive than other options in the general area, but nothing else is as close to the NSC facilities. That was worth paying for, in my opinion. There was a hockey tournament also being held at the NSC, so this hotel was busy with young hockey players and their families. I chose a room on the top floor to minimize the noise from some of these other guests. Check in and out was efficient, friendly, and accurate. Room was modern and comfortable. Bed was very comfy. Plenty of room to work and spread out. Bathroom was without any problems. Wifi was strong in the room. Loads of restaurants nearby. All in all, I'd recommend and would certainly stay here again.

    Nice comfortable hotel. Parking is a bit of a pain. During my stay, a construction trucks were blocking an entrance and several parking spots. Good location. The pool is great for families with small children! Breakfast was on the below average side.

    « Good except beds too high in accessible rooms. »

    Everything good except the beds are kind of high for a mobility accessible room. My travel partner and I are both wheelchair users and the beds were hard to get into. This has become a problem nation wide. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BACON HOTELS! STOP PUTTING HIGH BEDS IN ACCESSIBLE ROOMS!

    We would like to say what a wonderful staff you have. First of all your housekeeper Shariee is a sweetheart and does a great job, next Shanen is also a good housekeeper. And in the breakfast area Bonnie helped me out everyday mshe was there and what a big help since I am in the wheel chair. Now the smiling face that I seen every morning and the joy she gave me was Mallory. Ever one of these girls helped me more than you know but mmost of all there smiles and there friendlyness keep me going. Thank all of you!

    « One Night Stay »

    We stayed here for a night due to a function I was attending in the area. Check in was quick and efficient. We stayed in a 4th floor double. The room was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. I was not able to partake in the provided breakfast but it looked better than an average hotel continental breakfast. I wish we had time to use the pool and hot tub as it looked nice. There was also a decent sized workout room and arcade. Everything was clean and updated. I appreciated the complementary Sunday paper. I would stay here again next time I'm in the area. Good job Best Western Plus!

    Decided to stop here on our way home from Glacier National Park. Nice surprise. Newer property with nice furnishings on the north side of the Minneapolis area. Close to many restaurants. Second time we have stayed at Best Western Plus and I am becoming a fan of this brand.

    « Needs work woth details »

    Room and bath were clean and nice. Bed was comfortable. But the 1 queen bed room was not very large, and the bathroom was also small. Housekeeping missed cleaning my room on the 3rd day. Went to the desk to get some clean towels. Desk clerk provided them, but he clearly did not care that my room was not cleaned. Stay at this property once a year for business, and have found they have trouble getting employees that provide great service - or perhaps the training is poor. But not a lot of hotel choices in Blaine, and the location is convenient for me.
