I stay at this hotel often while traveling to St. Paul or near the University of MN campus. THey have a free shuttle which is very helpful and also excellent breakfast and staff. The hotel is beautiful inside and build around an old train station. Ample, free parking are also perks when you are talking Twin Cities hotels!

I love this hotel. Rates are reasonable and they have very nice rooms. Hotel has fitness center, hot tub and pool and has excellent staff. It is located close to major roads with easy accessibility. Great place.

Need a pet-friendly hotel in the Twin Cities of Mpls/StPaul? This is IT! Great value, great location, absolutely wonderful property. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Only downside... our bed was too soft. But that's a personal preference and nobody can make all of the people happy all of the time.

This was a very pleasant place to stay. We ordered in from Gabe Restaurant, who delivered very good meals. Our grandkids swam and that was very convenient to sit outside our room in comfortable chairs to watch them. The breakfast was pretty good and located in the lobby area which was very cute.

The location is good if you want to be close to the U of MN or the state fair but it is far removed from everything else. The neighborhood is office park/some residential, no restaurants; you need a car to survive. The room was a decent size but....the extra charge for pool view was only justified if I went out... More

Very unique hotel. Good conveniences, bar with some food items, pool, hot tub and serviceable continental breakfast. Our room was well designed (2 bedroom suite) but nothing to sneeze at. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Special shout-out to 3rd shifter Ben who took good care of us! Will come back!

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
