Establishment which holds the road. The welcome is correct with pleasant hosts. The room is clean, a little bit old-fashioned, except that for the price it is satisfactory. The bed is comfortable. The only negative element is the streetcar nearby which circulates late a night and which restarts early the morning. In return, the closeness of the streetcar makes all... More

We were booked for two nights but left after one. Should have thought more carefully as this hotel is right on the tracks and our room was about as close as you could get. We thought the trains might stop but no they run all night and the noise combined with the clanging of the crossing meant no sleep. Narrow... More

This motel is a little outdated. It was a great value. Room was clean and comfortable. It's also very convenient if you need public transportation. Room size was good and everything worked good. Good location in a quiet area.

I grew up in the Twin Cities, where my grandmother was the only person I knew to rely solely on public transportation to get around during the week. What a difference the lightrail makes! We've really got it all, now. Great location, pleasant place, nice people: The Snelling Motel, Spring 2014.

I'm not a fan of the motels where you haul your suitcases through the lobby, then a quarter mile down an interior hallway to your room. And you pay well over $100 a night for the privilege. I prefer the moderately priced motels where the doorway of your room opens onto the parking lot, and your car is just 10... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while we lined up a job in Minneapolis. It's located right next to HWY 55 and one Block away from Blue Line (Metro Train ) Stop. The room was priced very reasonably and the room was nicer than we expected. There was nothing particularly magical about the place but everything was in order and... More

This is a small Motel in MINNEAPOLIS, MN but it sure delivers a great value for the price. We use a coupon rate per night and it was just what I expected. No frills, but comfortable and clean. The rooms were spacious. The staff at the Motel were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely choose this Motel again for... More
