    Not clean!

    Our room was horrible! Floors were dirty, hair in the shower and on towel. Half used shampoo left on bathroom counter. All I can say is this place is gross!!

    Excellent location and room

    We stayed here with our dog and cat while traveling. The room was clean and all needs were met. Staff was friendly. Location is near a park in a great part of town. Highly recommend!

    Great staff and location

    I brought my 3 1/2 month German shepherd. There is a park right behind the hotel which is very convenient. Will definitely return when in Minden!!

    Historian Hotel

    Reasonable hotel, easy access. Provided a "welcom kit" for the dogs. Very nice park caddy corner from the hotel. Very clean, lots of hot water.
