“Not a great value but dog friendly and near Valleyfair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Our extended family stayed here because it is close to Valleyfair and they take dogs for an additional $35 (per stay). If it had been around $70 I would have thought it was fine for the money, but it was over $100 plus the pet fee. The hallways are very narrow and there are usually maid carts during the morning checkout, and there are no double doors and lots of turns (and no bellmen) so it can be hard to push the luggage carts around. Our room had a very strong odor of moldy air conditioner (my husband thought it might have been generated by the bathroon though). Still, the staff was generally quite pleasant and there is an ample free breakfast in the morning (standard waffles, yogurt, cereal, etc.). Just not a great value.

The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was great, with a nice water slide and a great hot tub and a sauna. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for a one night get away meeting another couple for their anniversary. We booked the room with a king size bed. As soon as we opened the door to the room I knew we were in trouble as the smell of stale smoke was totally overwhelming. We were put in a handicapped room with a king bed which that we could live with as it was very spacious but for heaven's sakes the smell was like being in a bar. I did go to the front desk to see if we could change rooms but no other rooms were available. We were offered a can of air freshener or we could leave the room for an hour and someone would go in and use some kind of oxidizer in there which we did not want to have to leave the room since we just got there and it was 9:00 at night. We did try the air freshener which didn't help much at all but managed to get through the night with the smell. This room was not cheap by any means and we expected more from Americinn. We have stayed at many of the Americinns and this was by far the worst experience we had. No discount was given for the room either. Very disappointing!! Won't take that chance again there.

Dear Valued Guest,

I want to thank you for taking your time to make a review, and also to stay with us. I am very sorry about your stay, and given the fact we are a NON smoking hotel, makes it even worse. I want to welcome you back to our hotel, print this comment back and you will get a king jacuzzi suite for the price of a regular room!

Hope to see you soon!!!

We've stayed at this hotel twice now. From someone who has stayed in numerous hotels, this is one of my favorites. The staff is very friendly and goes above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. Nice pool area with a waterslide the kids loved, and very clean, comfortable rooms. We will definately stay in this hotel again when in the Shakopee, Mn area.

The hotel was a great place to stay. We just popped in for the night, was able to get a room and relaxed. Close to Mystic Lake casino, we had fun there and came back to the hotel to hit the pool area, awesome! The rooms were clean and the staff was polite. I can't complain, I'll be back for sure!
