Midwest Living Review
There are 64 rooms in total at AmericInn Lodge and Suites (Wabasha’s largest hotel), but the 15 themed suites are really what provide guests something above and beyond a typical hotel experience.
Designed to showcase several of Wabasha’s most popular attractions and personalities, options include the Chief Wapashaw Suite, which pays homage to the area’s Native American history; the Kimono Suite, decorated with hand-painted kimonos from the Wind Whisper West gallery; and the Cat House Suite, a nod to the historic Anderson Hotel’s trademark practice of furnishing rooms with a live cat. Others suites like the Mississippi Decoy, Northwoods and Fisherman sport outdoorsy themes with duck decoys, fishing gear and cabin decor. There’s even a Grumpy Old Men suite, designed by Great River Houseboats using authentic memorabilia from the movie. The Lark Carousel Suite, a creation of local Lark Toys, is perhaps the most whimsical accommodation with pastel colors and carousel animals carved into the furniture.
All rooms offer a mini-fridge, free hot breakfast, and access to the indoor pool and hot tub, making this a great setting for a winter getaway. Room rates start at $90; suites from $139.
