This was our second visit to this hotel. My husband had a meeting at UMD which was about 10 minutes away. The reviews said it was clean and we found it to be very clean as well. The rooms in Canal Park are so high priced and staying here, you can be there in less than 15 minutes. It is just around the corner from the mall and other shopping. There are many options in the area for dining and it is right next to Gander Mountain.
The carpet was clean clear to the edges and it passed my white sock test with flying colors. There were lots of stains on the carpet and dust ruffle and tub and lots of scuffs on the walls and doors but it was clean. The air conditioner was difficult to regulate and our room was either too hot or too cold but we had it figured out by the time we went to bed. The pillows looked so nice and fluffy but squished to completely flat so my husband used 2 to make one. I travel with my own pillow so no problem for me. The bed was not very comfortable but we were only there one night. To us, clean is the main thing. Our room overlooked a very small pond - not one of MN"s 10,000 lakes but nice to look at just the same. They had a very good breakfast with a nice variety and the dining area was very clean. There was iced lemon water and coffee out in the lobby which they kept stocked.
Our only issue was the hotel shares a parking lot with Outback Steakhouse. The hotel also had a lot of groups using rooms for meetings. We got in after 7:00 and there was no parking. We had to park way across the parking lot behind Outback. The people at the front desk were not overly concerned and said we could just leave our car there for the night. But we didn't like that idea, because we knew when the restaurant closed and the meetings were over, our car would be all alone in the back of a dark parking lot. We waited a couple of hours for the meetings to be over and moved the car closer. If I were a woman traveling alone, I would not have been comfortable with this situation. They need to have clearly marked parking for guests who are staying there and insist local people using the hotel for meetings to park in Outback's parking lot. That was our only complaint. Everyone we met who worked there was very friendly. We would stay there again!
