Motel is family owned and operated.
If you're looking to stay just a few days it's better to check into the Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn. The Viking is one of the only in the area with weekly rates (in 2010 that was $150/wk) which is a good deal if you're desperate (like I was).
But I did like staying there for the 6 weeks I was there. My room had a microwave (and I think a dorm-fridge), two beds, sink, shower, toilet ~ all good.
The worst thing has to be the phone system ~ you cannot directly dial a room; you have to go through the front desk. Usually that's not a problem anywhere else, but with the Viking it's almost impossible to get ANYONE at the front desk, especially after 5pm, AND there is no automated (or computer) system in place for reaching the room if the front desk doesn't answer. If the person you're trying to reach doesn't have a cell phone, you're screwed. :)
When me and my Husband Paul was living there Everyone was very mean and NOT nice to us. And the Owners was NOT around to answers any of the phone calls. They need to start hiring more staff. And, They have BUGS & COCKROACHES coming out the walls and bathroom sicks and tubs.
I stay at the Viking Motel every time im in Willmar. The price is right, The rooms are clean, And the people are friendly. The last time i was there i grilled on the BBQ grill. and sat by the open pit fire outside. I was very happy with the place.
