We had to visit the laundry room to find some that were clean. The bathroom floor was sticky. The telephone didn't work. The fire alarm was broken. The parking lot was dirty and full of... More

We won't be returning. The only thing nice about this motel is its proximity to the mall. Among numerous things the biggest pitfalls were the very dirty carpet (bottom of our feet were black), stained bedsheets, and poor water pressure that can't flush the toilet. We didn't complain about anything and still received less than average service. More than $100... More

I enjoyed my mini getaway. Great location and price. They were very helpful in every way. I am booking another return to MN and I'm definitely looking forward to another great stay at this hotel. The king size bed felt great and comfortable. ..I have a lot of back issues. It is less than a $10 ride to Mall of... More

WOW! New tile, new carpet, new beds, quiet rooms and GREAT customer service. Everytime I stay, I notice improvements made since my last stay. As long as this hotel does not change ownership, I will continue to stay at this location. I see they are breaking ground to expand soon so, even newer accommodations appear to be on the horizon!

I read many of the complaints about this place, but many were old so I thought things must have changed by now. I really wanted to like this place - after all, lodging for a 4 or 5 night stay in MSP costs more than my flight and rental car combined every time I come out. The location seemed ideal,... More

One of the best place to be in.. I stick by my quote; the place has been renovated and they provide an excellent service. Their location is accessible to all the major places around the cities. The rooms are huge and warm(in Minnesota cold). Enjoyed staying there and highly recommend this place.
