Very nice hotel, spacious rooms, good old fashioned MidWest service.
A nice surprise, and a great value. Highly recommend.

I'm very particular when it comes to motels and rarely do I type up a five star review. We just got back from a weekend at this property and it has earned five stars from me. The rooms are spacious. We followed previous' posters advice and requested a room facing away from the interstate. Our request was honored. The rooms and common areas were clean. Pillows were plentiful and comfortable. The mattresses were in excellent shape. Typically, we reserve a room for five people and find three sets of towels in the bathroom. This motel supplied us with adequate towels. Breakfast was extensive and the room was large enough to accommodate everyone. There was lots of drawer space in the bathrooms. Many suite hotels have very small swimming pools (not sure why this is), but this pool was large enough for our kids to move around. The neighborhood does not have much to offer in the way of restaurants, stores, etc., but it is a safe, quiet neighborhood. There was plenty of parking. I'd like to stay here in the future, however, we paid $109 a night last weekend and I see on the hotel website that, for a March weekend next year, the prices have been upped to $159, which is quite an increase, so we probably won't return unless we can find a better deal. If you're willing to spend the money, this is a very, very nice motel.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the interstate.

Very nice hotel. Staff is friendly. Hot breakfast okay.... Needed to fix the oatmeal and my coworker had cold potatoes. Rooms very nice. If you are a light sleeper ask for a courtyard room or you'll hear the highway. There is a park across the street but I did not have a chance to check it out but this would be a great hotel in the summer. The gym was clean with new equipment. It would be nice if they added some machine and a few more mats. Overall a nice experience!!

Thank you for staying with us and thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We are always looking for feedback that will help us improve our hotel and our guests’ experience. I have already acted on a few of your comments. More mats have been ordered for the fitness center as you suggested. In addition, oatmeal has been my breakfast for the last couple days so I can help perfect the taste and consistency for our guests. We are fortunate to be in a location with such great outdoor recreation areas. Long Lake Park across the street is an awesome extension of the hotel’s fitness offerings with its miles of wooded jogging trails and swimming beach. I hope you have a chance to try it out next time you are in the area. Thanks again for staying with us and I look forward to your return visit.

We are a family of 4 + a dog - stayed two weeks while in transition from one home to another. VERY accommodating, spacious and comfortable hotel. Ordered groceries through the hotel (which is a service they provide) they were in the room waiting for us when we checked in. Very nice staff - nice warm breakfast and dinner. Would defiantly recommend and stay again ! THANK YOU Todd and Staff =)

My family of three stayed at the Homewood Suites in New Brighton, MN for a funeral over the weekend of January 26-29, 2012. I was afraid this was a rather pricey hotel, but after a weekend in a well appointed one bedroom suite with free full breakfast for all three of us, the most comfortable bed I've slept in and incredible service and hospitality , I'd gladly stay there again and recommend it to anyone who plans on traveling to the area.

We arrived late on Thursday so we missed the weekday reception with light dinner served in the early evening. Check in was fast and uncomplicated. The young man at the desk could answer all of my questions about the area and gave us easy directions to the nearest grocery store (a few blocks away) I was told that during the week you may make a grocery list and they will do the shopping for you. My husband is disabled and the room was a long walk to the breakfast/lobby area, but then I didn't complain or ask for another room.

The room was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. It's a new hotel so everything seems clean and fresh. We had a full kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, microwave, two stove top burners, fully stocked cabinets with silverware, plates, glasses pots and pans and other necessities. The living area was small but included a flat screen TV with 50 channels, sofabed, desk and chair. Free WIFI was included. The bath was of average size with a separated bathtub and commode area. There was a nice mirrored closet for our things. It was very clean. The bedroom was nice sized and had a separate flat screen TV and exceptionally comfortable bed. My sister in law had a two bedroom suite and was disappointed with the living area which was the same size as ours. The bedrooms in her suite were very large. One day our toilet backed up and they were up and had it fixed within 10 minutes.

The breakfast area was beautifully apponted and a breakfast buffet with different warm entrees every day along with coffee, tea, juices, fresh fruit, cereals, bagels, toast, muffins and a waffle maker. It was adjacent to the lobby with a large screen tv and see-through fireplace. We found the lobby to be a great place for members of our extended family to gather and the staff was most hospitable to our family and children who enjoyed the large pool across the patio. I used the exercise room which I found to be quite large with several treadmills, step machines and a bike along with weights, exercise mat and large mirror.
It was a great hotel for our needs and I would think it would be ideal for the business traveler.

Normally most of my stays in the mid-level hotels are, well, mid-level. However I think that Homewood Suites are at least one step above.

The facility is very comfortable and clean. I loved the room and wouldn't mind making it my home away from home - soooo comfortable - especially the bed.

Lastly, the breakfast offered is very nice and I understand that they offer a free dinner for quests Monday to Thursday. Nice!!!
