I stayed here for the low price of its park and stay ($140). I was not expecting much being 2 stars, but I will never stay here again. The sheets and pillow cases smelled of body odor, and had stains and hair on them. They were obviously used previously and were not changed. We woke up the next morning really... More

Chose it because of lowest park and fly on the internet that day. Room was adequate but dated. Bed was comfortable. Very clean and refrigerator and microwave was very helpful. We had a ground floor room on the parking lot and was not noisy. But there are rooms in the other building on second or third floor where there is... More

Despite the previous poor ratings of this hotel, my wife and I found it to be a cheap option near the airport. The room itself wasn't massive, but it had nice ammenities - a fridge and microwave, air-conditioning, and a nice walk-in shower. Clearly they have done work on the bathrooms recently as the fixtures and tiles were new and... More

This hotel is right next to the freeway, so we had to listen to traffic all night. No towels of any kind in the bathroom when we arrived. We had to go to the front desk to get them. Bathroom is tiny, no tub, no place for your toiletries. Continental breakfast was a pastry in plastic.

I arrived sometime between 11pm and midnight. The lobby was closed up and there is a doorbell to ring for service. I rang the bell 3 times waiting approximately 5 minutes in between rings. Finally the woman came saying she was in the laundry room. I asked about leaving my car at the hotel while I would be gone over... More

People are very nice, I like the rooms on the outside of the hotel and the pool was very nice. Close to MOA and shopping. Denny's close by and close to everything. We stayed at the Motel 6 up the road and although it was a nice hotel, they seemed pretty strick.

We booked a 2 night stay here. Upon arrival first impressions were poor and it looked run down and not very inviting. We then got to our room and were overcome with the stench of cigarette smoke even though it was a non smoking room. There was stains on the bed covers and the door did not lock very well... More

I booked a ParkSleepFly package that included parking my vehicle at Northwood Inn and Suites in Bloomington Mn. The plan was to park my vehicle, take the shuttle, fly out, take a shuttle back to the hotel and stay over night. I was flying back in on a 11:45 PM flight. When I arrived I was instructed where to park... More

We were looking for a quick place to stay and a friend recommended the Northwood Inn. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The staff was extremely helpful and the pool was not busy and just perfect for my "other half" and my self. I will be staying again for sure
