“Decent room, but check-out too early”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2008

I was looking for a cheap place to stay the night in the St. Paul area using my GPS's point-of-interest database and phone (to check for availability), and this one came up as close to the cheapest ($60 / night) and most convenient. So I decided to stay there.

Well, get there, and no surprise, it's one a true "park outside your room" motel (though there seemed to be two stories). The location is rather isolated from a "where can I walk to?" standpoint, but it's within convenient driving distance (~5 miles) of downtown St. Paul, a similar distance to downtown Minneapolis, and very close to the airport (though airport noise was not an issue at all). There's a Mexican restaurant next door that I know nothing about.

Check-in went OK and the non-smoking room was clean, though oddly with a hint of smoke or something else that seemed to disappear after being in there for a little bit and turning the A/C (wall unit) on. The room had plenty of space, a decent bed, bathroom with bath, and a TV with the full local basic cable line-up, including public access channels. I slept well, and woke up the next morning at about 9:00, watched the news on TV, and got out of bed at around 10:40 or so to shower. Right as I was hopping into the shower, I heard the room phone ring. "Hello sir, time to check out". At 10:40?!!! Who checks out that early?!! Most places I've been to, it seems to be 12. Some, 11. But this place seemed to have it set at 10:30, maybe 11:00 and a warning call. Still, I'd prefer a noon check-out.
