We booked a room here 3 weeks in advance of our arrival. Then 1 1/2 hours away from arriving, after driving across the state of Wisconsin, they called and said oops, we're overbooked and we don't have a room for you! So sorry, but being sorry doesn't pay the bill now does it? In all our years of traveling we... More

I stayed at this motel for three days and was very comfortable and cozy! My room was spacious and meticulously clean. I'm a neat freak and was very happy to see that the bathroom was well taken care and spotless. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and offers a lot of dining options and grocery stores! The staff was very courteous... More

Homophobic. Don't come here. Was turned away because my partner and I wanted a room. Told it was full but there were only 5 cars in the parking lot. Not cool. Our money spends the same as anyone else's.

A Great place to stay! The rooms were big, clean and comfortable. The beds were also comfortable and we always woke up feeling well rested so we could go explore the town. The Hotel/Motel is in a great location as well. It was roughly a 3-5 minute drive to downtown Mpls & literally took the exact same time to drive... More

To clarify, I did not stay the night here. I took a look at the room and realized I could not stay there. Carpets were filthy, and shower was filthy. Walls and blinds are filthy. Worse of all, the sheets were dirty (hair on them - and not just an isolated strand or two.) The dude with the prostitute in... More

The only thing redeeming about the Metro Inn Motel was the nearby neighborhood. The surrounding area was charming and had decent food options and a fantastic liquor/beer/wine store, bumping it up to two stars. However... The immediate area was somehow a 1/4 mile of the wrong side of the tracks. Unsavory characters loitering and talking loudly until 3am. The buildings... More

If you don't want to spent all your vacation money in fancy hotels, then I suggest you stay in the Metro Inn Motel. I stayed over there in the New years eve and it was worth it. The service and the cleanliness of the place was very good. Its just 10 minutes away from the downtown and very close to... More

The best thing I can can say about it is it's cheap. The neighbourhood was also quite nice (there was a great take out chinese place that was a short walk away that I can't remember the name of). The service staff was ok. Easy to drive places from here. The room itself was kind of a hole though, very... More

This Motel is located at an excellent location. Close to all the things minneapolis has to offer. Airport, Mall of American, Great American Water Park. The room was clean. The sheets and furniture were like new and had no trouble when requested extra towels. The bathroom was neat and clean and did not have any trouble at all. The price,... More

A friend who dropped in from out of town and needed a room at short notice was treated with utter contempt, as were we all when we attempted to intervene on her behalf. Every communication with these unbelievably rude people was a nightmare for the four days that she stayed there. We could not believe anyone who behaved this way... More
