“Great place to stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I always stay here on my trips to Minneapolis. Staff is always friendly and helpful. So close to the Mall of America you can walk. If you think you'll walk enough at the mall they also have a shuttle to take you there. Don't want to rent a car the shuttle will take you to the airport, also pick you up when you arrive. Minneapolis light rail system picks up at the Mall of America and can take you to a The Metrodome or Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. Did I tell you about the free breakfast? Love this place!

Great experience overall. Got upgraded to a King Suite from regular King room reservation and the Suite was clean, comfortable, quiet and cozy. Despite the fact that it was Thanksgiving weekend and the hotel was very busy, there was plenty of parking at all times, never had to wait for a table during breakfast time and all the staff there was super friendly. The breakfast was great with lots of plentyful choices and at least 2 staff members were always around, making sure no one was lacking anything. Loved the proximity to IKEA, MOA and the Light Rail Station for easy access to downtown. Slept very well in their bed, loved the couple different options for pillows that were on the bed. Stayed for 4 nights and would definately stay again!!!

We needed a place to stay close to the airport and this fit the bill. Clean and including a nice breakfast in the morning made a quick business trip a bit better. The linens were a little sparse (definitely not the heavy duvets and blankets that I like) and the towels were a little small but for one night it was sufficient.
The room itself was clean and had fast internet which is always a plus. An airport shuttle that runs 24 hours is a definite plus.
Pool looked nice though we did not use it.

This was a good basic hotel for a few days of shopping at the Mall of America. If you are looking for luxury this is not the place for you. The room was clean but very basic and the breakfast was just ok. Some perks are free and abundant parking, free internet, and the super close proximity to the Mall of America. Check in and out was fast and the employees were really nice and helpful. We had a couple of minor maintenance issues in our room and they were taken care of quickly. A couple of drawbacks are the towels in bathroom are very small and thin, the beds are kind of hard, and there is quite a bit of airport noise. All in all though, I would stay there again.

This is a relatively new property and is very clean and extremely quiet considering this hotel sits in line with a take off runway. The staff was friendly and very willing to help with anything. It is a typical Fairfield Inn - nothing special as far as amenities etc but i would definitely stay here again due to the great staff.

Room Tip: get an even numbered room - they are quieter

This is a typical Fairfield Inn with clean, quiet rooms and good breakfast. The staff is quite good and friendly. The draw here is it's closeness to the Airport which is a 10 minute shuttle ride away. Shuttles do run whenever you need them. There is also an hour on the hour shuttle to the Mall of America which is only about 5 minutes away. However, if the weather is nice, it is a very easy walk across the highway.

I never expect a lot from Fairfield Inn's but this one was very clean. I usually stay at the Homewood down the block but couldn't get in on this night.

Room and hotel were clean and the location next to MOA is great.

My only compliant is not about the hotel but the brand. You get what you pay for and this is an example: Towels at Fairfield's are always small and thin. Just not a great quality and feel cheap. But again, get what you pay for.

Also, not a fan of the bed and bed covers, feel cheesy.
