We spent the weekend at the hotel for a wrestling tournament. The breakfast in the morning was perfect, and it was all the more special because of the lovely Judy who serves the breakfast. Judy is an absolute gem and served with a smile:) the rooms were so great to relax in with a sofa, recliner, kitchen table and a... More

I definitely cannot say enough bad things about this hotel! While they were polite at the time of making the reservation, everything after that was a complete disaster. I called on the way there to tell them I would be arriving late and to make sure they were holding a quiet room for me. Christian was very rude—which turned out... More

We stayed there twice recently due to its convenience to MSP airport. The rooms were clean and comfortable with decent Wi-Fi. The breakfast competitive with other motels. Their strongest feature was a friendly and helpful staff.

Fortunately, they had other amenities as well: our suite had a kitcheonette and two very large rooms (bedroom and living area). The room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The...

We ended up with 3 different rooms but that was OK, because room was already reserved for another customer. Hotel manager was very accommodating in the move. Nice to have the couch, recliner, 2 TV's and kitchen facilities. Breakfast is limited... More
