This is a great hotel if you just need a place to sleep while visiting Minneapolis. It's clean, friendly, and convienetly located near public transportation, the highway, and a variety of interesting things within walking distance. It is not the fanciest hotel. It doesn't have a ton of amenities. The fixtures and furniture are a little dated. And their breakfast... More

Breakfast in the morning was disgusting, we... More

The hotel was a very good value. They gave us the medical discount as we were returning for my daughters 5th year anniversary of her BMT. They have a shuttle that gets you too many places close to their location that runs all day. We did not eat at the hotel so I cannot say one way or another about... More

Nice looking property, steps away from the light rail for easy access to downtown. Great, inexpensive downtown alternative - would definitely stay again.

Dear S4238MQemilyb, Thank you for dropping a quick note on your recent stay. We love our location right across from TCF Bank Stadium too. We hope you come back soon to see a Golden Gophers football game or maybe even the Stadium Series Hockey Game between the Wild and Blackhawks in February 2016. Thanks again! More

Biggest problem was that when we returned the first night, the room had not been cleaned. Only bedspreads pulled back to cover the beds. The front desk tried to clean up when we reported it, but they had to leave for shuttle pickups.
