“Great place to stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2008

Homewood Suites simply one of the Best places to stay.

Had a very pleasant stay at this property the last weekend in March. Check in was a breeze friendly and courteous front desk staff. Room was clean and what we expected we had a king suite.

Pros:

Breakfast was great as always at Homewood suites can't beat the selection of both hot and cold items.

The friendly employees and atmoshere of the hotel they seem interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible.

Location to the Mall of America is very handy my wife walked back from the mall with no problem.

Chevy's eatery and bar is connected to the hotel nice to have a place to grab a quick bite or a drink at the end of the evening. The place seems okay we sat in the bar and had some drinks, service leaved a bit to be desired but it was a busy Friday night.

Rooms are clean roomy and fairly modern with full kitchen. Bathroom is a bit small but sink and countertop are seperate so its not so bad.

Cons:

Pool area is a bit out of the way and no hot tub which seems a bit odd but it is decent sized and works well for the kids.

Can be a little noisy with airport nearby depends on flight path didn't bother me but wife noticed it a bit she is a light sleeper though. I would not let this discourage you from staying at this property.

All in all I would recommend this propery to families and business travelers. It is an excellent place to stay.

Hats off to Homewood Suites! The service and rooms were excellent. I could not have asked for a more accomodating and hotel. The rooms were clean and the amenities were awsome.

After reading all the good things other reviewers had to say about this hotel my husband and I cancelled the reservations we had and chose Homewood Suites. We were not disappointed. This hotel is great! Jill (from Appleton, WI) at the front desk was wonderful. She always had a friendly smile on her face and was willing to help, whether it be with a restaurant suggestion or arranging for the motel shuttle - which will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius of the motel. Since the suites have a full kitchen, this was helpful in getting some beer and munchies to have on hand. The shuttle also goes to the Mall Of America and the airport once an hour.

The motel is right across the street from the Mall Of America and is within walking distance if you choose not to take the shuttle. We did this the first day, but with the wind chill -40 below, we took the shuttle the other 2 days. It was quick and efficient and each driver we encountered was friendly.

As others have said before, even though each suite has a full kitchen, a free breakfast buffet is offered each morning. We checked in early on Friday and we were offered to help ourselves upon check in which was very nice after a meal less flight.

Suites were vey clean and like a home away from home. We have already reccommended this motel to friends and when traveling to the Mall Of America again this will definitety be our choice of where to stay.

This is a great place for a business stay. It is close to the MSP airport, and you can catch the hotel's shuttle or take the light rail to the Mall of America, which is right across the street. The staff is fantastic. The folks at the front desk are very friendly and helpful.

The rooms are huge, and consist of a bedroom with attached bath and a living room/kitchen.Since I am fairly tall, one thing I especially appreciate is a high shower head, and this was one of the highest I've ever seen. Even though there is a kitchen, they provide a continental breakfast with hot eggs, meats, and oatmeal, along with the usual spread of bagels, waffles, etc. Monday through Thursday they have a "welcome home" buffet, but the food on the two nights I was there was nothing special, and they don't serve alcohol.

Like I said, the Mall of America is right across the street, and there is a vast array of restaurants there (see my reviews for Fabulous Dave's and Bubba Gumps). There is a Chevy's Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel, but the food there is nothing special.

One major drawback is that, while the mall is close, there doesn't appear to be a convenient place to buy groceries or beer/wine. The hotel will provide a shuttle to take you anywhere within five miles, but requires special arrangements. For the alcohol part, there is a nice bar in the Chevy's restaurant, and they serve a decent margarita.

Very nice hotel. Great breakfast! We loved having a fridge and stove in the room. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The only thing missing was a hot-tub in the pool. But the pool was nice and warm on a record-cold weekend in January.

There was also a DVD player in the 'living room' so we could watch our own movies. The mall is close enough to walk to, but the shuttle runs every hour.

  • Liked — the spacious well appointed room

We went to Minneapolis to see a football game & decided to stay near the Mall of America. This worked out very well. The Homewood Suites is located within walking distance to the MOA. Their shuttle service is also available & will drop you off at the front door if you choose not to walk. Also within walking distance is the Metro Transit train terminal. This will take you to the airport, the Metrodome & the Target Center & other various locations around Minneapolis very inexpensively. Homewood Suites Bloomington offers free aiport transportation too.

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. The morning breakfast was plentiful. They offer complimentary evening light snacks, but we weren't around to enjoy it. The suites are spacious, equipped with refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher & dinnerware and utensils should you decide to eat in. Our suite had two plush king beds (hard to find a hotel in area with 2 king beds) that were very comfortable. Three tv's were in our suite with a comfortable sofa, chair & ottoman. The price was affordable & cheaper than other hotels by the mall.

The hotel has an indoor pool, adequate fitness room w/ treadmills, crosstrainer, stationary bike and some free weights.

All in all, we were very happy with our stay at the Homewood Suites, Bloomington. Our only complaint (if you want to call it that) was the hotel does not have a hot tub. We requested they put one in. However, we'd me more than happy to return for our next visit.

We just returned from a visit to the St. Paul/Minneapolis area, and stayed at the Homewood Suites because it was close enough to walk to the Mall of America (my 11 year old son likes to go there on Thanksgiving when the stores are closed and there are no crowds), they accept dogs, they have free internet access, and the price was right. We were VERY pleased with our stay, and, in fact, decided to stay another day because we liked it so much. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. On Thanksgiving, when we arrived, my husband was stuck in the hotel room with our dog, and when he called room service to get something to eat from the adjacent Chevys restaurant, he found that the restaurant was closed due to the holiday. One of the hotel staff offered to go to the nearby IHOP that was open, and didn't even accept a tip for doing this. Later in the day there was a complimentary light dinner, which we hadn't expected since it was a holiday, so that was a nice plus. Oh, and on top of all this, even though I'd already made the reservation at the AAA rate, they accepted the coupon for 30% off that I found in a tourist brochure when we stopped at the Minn travel center, so the rate was really great! All in all, I'd say that this was the best travel experience we have had as a family, especially one with a dog (note there is a $100 non-refundable pet deposit, but it's worth it!).
