This motel is a little outdated.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

This was just a terrible place. I booked it because of the great location near the light rail stop. It was very hard to find, however. "Fortunately" the toilet exploded and I didn't have to stay. I found another place with a huge breakfast bar and pool for the same price. See my picture of the step up to the... More

The one gentleman stated it right "broken English". But it more than a simple communication issue; the new owners lack courtesy, professionalism and cleanliness. I seen cockroaches in the lobby and in the bathroom. Unfortunately it was too late to get another place for us. Best Advice: Stay away from this one! P.S. I cant help but see trpadvisor receiving...
