Rooms were okay, the hotel was nice with a lot of breakfast choices. It was near the State Fair and that's what we wanted. It's a little pricey due to the area, but it's cute being an old railroad transfer yard. Little noisy, could hear the outside hall door open and close each time someone came in. We were woke... More

This is the closest hotel to the Minnesota state fair grounds and convenient for fair or concert-goers. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, room was clean and comfortable. Internet was kind of iffy.

First impressions of this hotel are the quirkiness as it is built in an old railway depot. We requested a poolside room and was granted it. It was nice to sit out and watch kids play in the pool. The downside of this was that they started playing at an early time, so there was plenty of noise early the... More

A miserable stay. The room thermostat only allows a setting in a very small range. When I complained that my room was excruciatingly cold the front desk said that they could close the master damper for the room. This did not result in any change. The cold air duct was positioned directly over the bed so not only was it... More

On the outside the hotel looks a bit older, but don't let that fool you as the rooms are nicely updated. There is a great little parking ramp across the street. Our room had a window facing the pool and I would probably not want that the next time as I didn't care for the pool noise. The continental breakfast... More

The staff was excellent, the room was very comfortable, the breakfast was great and the shuttle to the fair was so convenient! The Shuttle drivers were all friendly, helpful and efficient. This will be State Fair central for us from now on.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, and once again the service was superior. The room was clean, neat, and very comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect!

I attended the BMW Motorcycle International Rally that was held at the fair grounds and stayed here during the event. There was nothing negative about this motel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, clean, bright and large. The breakfast has a lot of both warm and cold choices. However the best part of the motel is... More

The upgrade to a PLUS has made Bandana Square a very good place to stay, The improved amenities and better breakfast menu were a welcome surprise, I have been staying at Bandana Square for more the 20 years, unfortunately my room had a very loud vent blowing air into the room, it made for a restless night. I understand the... More

As others have said the building was part of an old railway complex and much of the original construction has been maintained, making it unique as hotels go. We liked it very much. Very nicely decorated room, very clean, with super comfy bed. The front desk staff bent over backwards to solve our initial problems with the internet connection. (Indeed,... More
