Walked into our room the temperature was 42deg!! In cold wintry Minnesota that really sucks...so turned the heat up and it took 3 hours to warm our room up. Called the front desk and had them bring more blankets...I added them to the already threadbare blankets on the bed and finally got warm. The room was severely outdated, looks like... More

Love this place, rooms are extra large with a lot of room to spread out. Hotel is in good condition. What makes it the best is the location which is close to the airport without the airport noise and of course the exceptional service that I receive every time I am here.

We recently returned from a mini vacation to Minneapolis with four adults and three kids aged 7, 12 and 15. The hotel was very clean, and one door down from the waterpark. So convenient, and they even provided a shuttle to and from the mall! But, really this is just part of our experience. The staff made it so fun,... More

Real clean place. LOTS of room. Beds are comfy. Breakfest was good also. REAL close the Mall of America, so that was a plus. Free shuttle to the mall and back. Second time staying there, and im sure there will be a 3rd. The negative Nancys that gave this place a poor review need to go stay at a Ritz... More

The room was filled with dust, smelled like smoke, had damaged furniture, and curtains were ripped and coming apart. This place needs a make over. Hot breakfast and good lobby area but the room was horrible.

We stayed here for one night before we were leaving Minneapolis. They have a free shuttle to the airport, and given the layout of MSP, I opted to return the rental car in the night before our flight, and we just took the shuttle to the airport. That saved us a lot of hassle. The shuttle drivers were friendly and... More
