I had a wonderful experience at the Thrifty motel. The new manager is doing a wonderful job and there is all new employee's working and the place looks nice. I love how they help you and the front desk is not drunk while helping you. Thank you Thrifty for the wonderful stay.

Staff are very pleasant. You get what you pay for so no complaints here. Thanks I enjoyed the stay. It was close and convenient to my needs and after staying at a fancier one with staff that doesn't have a clue I reiterate...Thank you for your hospitality.

We stayed at this motel for about 7 weeks while my husband was doing a job out here, clean rooms, great staff, pet friendly, even has a fenced in backyard where you can let your fur baby run, if we ever travel to St.Clould in the future we will definitely stay here again. ...

Great quiet clean place to stay. Service was excellent. It is also very close to a grocery store. We will be staying here any time we pass thru this area again. It is very reasonably priced. Everything was great about this place.
