Stay in Minneapolis unless you are desperate. The check in person was distracted with personal business and the room was less than average with many maintenance issues. Breakfast could have been put in a trough.

We loved the beds and pillows. Very comfortable. We all slept really good. The only thing was the pool was kinda small and the walls needed a clean or a fresh paint. It was still great though. Would definitely stay again.

Context: stayed several nights while on business in Northfield Pros: Few; they did provide a breakfast and one of the mornings, there were hot eggs and sausage, with fruit and other choices; helpful staff Cons: The hallways and other common areas had little pieces of debris and other unidentifiable items; did not seem to be that clean and tidy of...

Stay here if you like being woke up by trains running past your window 10 feet away. The crossing is unmarked, so each one blasts on its horn! The walls are thin so if the trains aren't bad enough, you can be awoken to the laughing and talking of drunk people at 2 am. Not a place to stay unless... More

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. We understand how important a quiet environment is and apologize for the trains that run behind the hotel. Due to us being in between 2 intersections they are required to blow the horn. Your feedback helps us prevent situations such as this in the future. We hope you will... More

After making phone reservations with a girl who was obviously bewildered, we should have just cancelled. But we didn't. We were part of a block of rooms reserved for a wedding. Upon arrival, we were told the room rate we reserved at was not what we would be paying. We were told that we got the last two rooms available... More

Wow, for as much as you are charge for a room, you would expect a good night sleep, not the case with this hotel. Room clean and adequate, staff friendly and know that the trains are a nightmare. Breakfast was hot and good.

I understand your frustration with the trains that run behind the hotel. sometimes they can be worse than others but if you request a room on the opposite side of the railroad tracks most people don't realize the train is back there. I hope when your travels bring you back to Northfield you do give our hotel a try again.... More

Still not impressed. The pool temperature was very comfortable, the hot tub a bit too hot (all 7 of us couldn't stand it for long) and there is still no fitness center. Not that I was expecting them to fabricate one since our last stay. LOL. The train is annoying but we've slept in noisier hotels. Breakfast was good-well stocked... More

The hotel is a bit long in the tooth. The staff was pleasant. The rooms a little dingy. The beds just barely comfortable. About what I suspected. All this is ok...until the freight trains start rolling through all night. 4 in our evening from 11pm to 6 am. And since you can toss a rock to the tracks from the... More
