We had a reservation at a different motel, but they wouldn't check us in early. We were exhausted from a long drive, and when looking for a pharmacy, we drove past Midway Motel. I googled the phone number and called for a room. The amazing family that owns the motel was soooo accommodating. We were given a perfect little room. Very clean and quiet. The price was cheaper than the "other" motel that we subsequently cancelled. Not only could we rest after a long drive, we could walk to the state fair (rather than driving & paying for parking). Perfect family-owned motel that is clean. Thank you, owners of Midway! We will be back. :)

I stayed one night at the Midway Motel across the street from Hamline University in May 2013. This clean and safe motel had everything I needed for $50/nt. The room had wifi, the bathroom looked as though it had been recently remodeled, and the bed was comfortable. The room had air conditioning and a small refridgerator, but did not have a clock/radio, coffee pot, or a microwave, It's probably not a room that I'd want to hang out in, but it's a great place to sleep and get cleaned up in the am. Some have said that it's not in the best part of town, but I didn't see anything to support that opinion. The owners offer a great deal on a room that provides all of the basics including easy parking. The help behind the desk was helpful and friendly. Plus, it's nice to support a family owned business instead of some big impersonal corporation!

I stayed at the Midway Motel for one night, for a meeting at the UM-St. Paul campus. The staff were gracious and helpful, the room was good-sized and attractive, and the location was very convenient to my meeting - all for $50/night! Great experience. I would return to this motel.

I've stayed here quite a bit. I've even called this motel my home for over 4 months. It is very quiet. The family that runs it now are very particular on who they rent the rooms to, so everyone who decides to stay there can expect a great and quiet experience. The rooms have been remodeled. This is a great and affordable place for someone to stay a night or two. Or however long you need to. It is also very safe for families with young children.

I stayed at this place several times over the last 11 years or so.
It simply was the cheapest place to stay at the location I was looking for.
It looks a bit seedy, like the type of place were you expect hookers and drug dealers to
meet clients but it was a decent experience, I never heard or saw anything unusual. However, after my wife heard about it, she forbid me to stay over there again.

I needed a place in the city, didn't want spendy downtown prices, or any sort of trendy night life. I was biking around the Mpls/St. Paul area and just needed a spot to sleep. It was easy to bike to with a little trip planning ahead of time. I'm sure public transit would be a piece of cake. The area is quiet, seemed safe, heard no extra neighbor noise, bed comfortable- slept great. There's nothing frilly about this motel, they keep thier rates low. The staff was friendly and I liked the free coffee in the morning.
