1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Had a horrid stay at this outdated hotel. It is undergoing renovations and the stuff that is done looks cheap and of low cost craftsmanship. Tiny rooms with old style bathrooms you can barley get into. You almost have to stand in the nasty shower to close the door. So bad, this place is not worth renovating and should be torn down. There are many other, nicer, cleaner, better places in the area. Check the pictures others posted for the filthy conditions. Mold! Dirt behind the windows. Nasty towels. Low ceilings. Dirty carpet. This would be a nice hotel in a 3rd world country but nasty by any stretch of the imagination. How this facility has obtained a 3 star rating by some sources is a disgrace to other places in the area. I am just happy this trip was just me and not my family! This place is on the same level as an old Motel 6, nasty Super 8 or a dirty Extended Stay America. It is NOT on the same level as Hyatt Place, Comfort Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express or the others with a 2.5 - 3.0 star rating in the area. Yucky! Avoid! Run... This place is not fit for humans. Sleazy! Dated!

The only place this has going for it is the location. Minutes from the airport, in sight of IKEA and the Mall of America. Thus why it should be torn down, property sold to someone who would build a decent facility.

The telling thing is I read a review on TA that said the reviewer spent his wedding night at this hotel 40 years ago and loved it and still loves it. Don't think it has been cleaned since they were there 40 years ago! I am sure the bathrooms have the same fixtures from its original build.

I did use Priceline after doing much research on the area for a place to stay before a flight. I had low expectations but this place feel well below those expectations. If you use PL, beware in this area!

Room Tip: To get a good room, drive out of the parking lot and find a different facility.

Thank you so much for your candid feedback on our hotel. We are sorry that our historic 50 year old Hotel did not meet your expectations. We have hired some of the best companies in Minnesota to help us with the renovations of the former Thunderbird Hotel, and we believe, when we have completed the multi-million dollar renovations, that we will exceed all of your expectations. In the mean time, we will continue to strive to provide exceptional service to our guests and are appreciate of all of the feedback we get from our new and returning guests.
