“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I had a good experience with my stay this week at this Hotel. Very easy to get to and the rates were good. Very clean and comfortable. Down side is you are not with in walking distance to anything at all. My room was good. Little disapointed with the shower head. It is in a fixed location and can't change the angle of the spray. My room at first smelled of the Pool. I was located right above the pool outside my window. I did not smell it at all after about 2 minutes. Staff was very nice and the attached resturant was a good place to eat at.

Stayed here 1 night and found the hotel to be out of the way, nothing nearby. The man at the front desk seemed overwhelmed and was not friendly.
The rooms are large and bed is comfortable.
The bathrooms need to be updated & thoroughly cleaned.
Got a good price on Priceline so overall it was fine.

I was able to stay here on a budget due to a coupon i had. It was pretty great for a hotel room which i usually hate. Beds were nice, pool was beautiful. However, it was very small and too cold to be comfortable. The hot tub was pretty great though. I didnt like the sectioned off hot tub because i could not watch the kids, and you had to walk entirely around the area to get between the hot tub and pool. Also, no continental breakfast, which was annoying in the morning. But overall i am pleased.

smithn1986,


Thank you for your feedback regarding the Holiday Inn I-35W. I will be sure to convey your concerns with the pool temperature to our Chief of Engineering.

In regards to a continental breakfast, we do not offer one because we are a full-service Holiday Inn which has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Hotels without restaurants are typically the only ones with a continental breakfast.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the service you received. We look forward to serving you again should your travels bring you back to Bloomington, MN.

We stayed with two of our youngest grandkids, age 3 and 4. The room was exactly as expected and we did not hear anything after we closed the door. We were concerned about the noise that the kids normally make and also worried about noise keeping them awake. Not a peep! The room was spotless and the beds were very comfortable.

The front desk folks accommodated our request for a late checkout without a hassle, and were very helpful and courteous in every request. Even the housekeeping staff was great.

One small strange item: the hot tub is adjacent to the pool, but to get from one to the other, you have to walk half way around the pool to the nearest gate. Also, adults in the hot tub can't easily see kids in the pool. This was not a problem for us, because the kids were too young to leave alone.

The Wifi was painfully slow. There was no possible way to use Netflix. Even email was slow. Certainly this could be corrected with a bit of effort. Wifi is a basic lodging necessity now. I would have given the hotel five stars with speedy Wifi.

We traveled to St. Paul for some meetings/trainings for school and received the "Teacher Getaway" rate - GREAT VALUE!!!! Valid through Oct. 2013, all you need is to mention the "Teacher Getaway" rate ($69 regular room, $99 poolside) and show your school ID upon arrival. Beautiful pool and patio area (indoor) and nice restaurant (Green Mill) attached. Great value, great location (just 10 minutes from the Mall of America). Just remember this is not a Holiday Inn EXPRESS, so breakfast is not included. :-)

Attended a meeting at this hotel. The guest rooms were clean and well maintained. The amenities were terrific, service outstanding. Close to the Mall of America, and the provided a compliementary shuttle to and from the Mall; as well as to the airport. They have a resturant that was very convienent, so you did not need to go off site if you didn't want to. The conference room was always refreshed after each break and was bright and welcoming to attendees.

I have stayed here a time or two before. I utilized their park n fly option which was nice. The room is clean and comfortable and it is nice having the Green Mill restaurant and bar in the hotel. No need to drive anywhere for supper. I would stay here again for sure.
