“Staff and Location can't be beat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

First let's talk location. This property is on the east side of the Mall of America. They offer shuttle service, but to be honest with you, if it were not for the traffic that you would have to dodge, the mall is within walking distance in nice weather;our room overlooked the mall and IKEA! (This shopper was happy.) Second, it's by the airport.. and again, they offer shuttle service.

The breakfast was nicer than expected. Eggs, waffles, bagels, bacon, oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, the whole 9 yards. Yes, it's what you expect, plus. They leave fruit, coffee and iced water out 24 hours.

The staff, particularly Carl and Mike, and then Colin were extremely accomodating. Without going into details, they (on two separate occasions) went above and beyond what anyone would expect for customer service. They are definitely customer oriented. The shuttle driver, whose name I don't know, was great. (He has a signature moustache.) Although I didn't use the shuttle, I talked with him in the lobby. Whoever does the hiring/ training for this location knows what they are doing.

Although our trip to Minnesota was not perfect (thank you Delta Airlines for beng HORRIBLE,) our experience with this Fairfield Inn helped make the trip, as a whole, terrific.

Ok.. you want some negatives (of course things aren't always perfect.) This Fairfield Inn doesn't supply lotion in the rooms. There-- you have it. No lotion.

My daughter and I stayed here during our annual Mall of America venture. It's an ok hotel, rooms are small, we had a standard double queen. Room could have used a fridge and microwave. If you like to be close to the airport than this is your motel. Planes flying overhead all hours of the day and night, a little noisy but we didn't mind because we weren't in the room much. Hardy breakfast for those who like to het up and have a good hot breakfast. Would I stay here again? Probably not, the Best Western across the road was much nicer for almost the same price.

Good place to stay right next to Mall of America. Shuttle available but not necessarily needed with free parking at MOA. Room was good, a little snug, with plain decorating. Breakfast was very good with a large variety. However felt it was a little pricey - over $100 after taxes for 2 queen bed room.

Three women, two children and a day's worth of shopping bags and we didn't feel too cramped. A crib was delivered within five minutes of requesting it. Late night staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good but chaotic, we did notice a bus parked outside the night before which I think overwhelmed the breakfast staff. Rooms could use a little updating but were reasonably clean and comfortable - room price was fair for room quality. You can see the hotel from the Mall of America, we drove past it on our way to the mall and it was nice to know after a long day of shopping we'd have no problem finding it since we had already found it without even really looking!

The staff here is awesome! Excellent service and welcome friendliness! This is my 2nd trip here and I'm planning to make it an annual visit at Christmas time. Rooms, breakfast, shuttle, staff - the best! And I remember many of them from last year. We WILL be back!

My 2 teenage daughters and I stayed here 1 night so we could start shopping early at the Mall of America. The hotel is located right across the street from the Mall. The updated room was spotless, beds very comfortable, all usual amenities provided. Only problem was the fan on the heater didn't work by itself, only worked when the heat kicked on so had to run the bathroom fan all night for background noise. The daughters enjoyed the warm pool and I enjoyed the hot tub. We skipped breakfast, wanting to get to the mall early. For 3 females staying alone in the hotel, we felt completely safe.
