Came up as first choice with Trip Advisor. It was cheapest overnight stay. Staff was pleasant enough but the place is generally so old and run down that , even though we left our car there, we decided not to sleep there.

OMG, if I could give a zero I would. Where do I start. Stayed as a stop over after visiting family. Arrived, reception looked ok, then it hit us what a dive it really was, the stench of stale smoke and fresh smell of the what you can't buy in the store, type of smoke. Overwhelmed to say the least....

We chose this hotel primarily because it was close to the airport and we could leave our car at no extra charge and take the shuttle. At $130/night, we did not expect a luxury hotel, but also did not expect a dump, but a dump is what we found. To get to our room, we walked on carpet so dirty...

I debated on giving this terrible place two stars - only because the staff was friendly and the location was convenient to the airport. However I couldn't do it. I can't believed we were taken for $90 thanks to the Ryder Cup. Had I paid $39 maybe I wouldn't be surprised. The room was large and had a good TV...

Rooms had the basic amenities. No coffee pot however. Beds were comfortable and a nice flat screen tv. Cleaning was horrible and the carpets were DIRTY. The tile in the bathroom was very dirty and needed a good scrubbing and also the wall around the toilet needed cleaning. I found a remote to some old tv in one of the...

The motel appears to be a hotel in the picture so this is deceiving. I was nervous when I dropped my car off for a park and fly stay due to the age of the motel. I found that the lobby smelled like smoke which made me even more nervous. Upon my return from my trip I had to take...

I was satisfied with the stay. This was my second time stay in last 2 years and I will stay again if I am in Minnesota. Close to everything I visited, respects culture, authentic, staff very much friendlier, nice breakfast especially the coffee, large safe room.

I booked this hotel through Expedia and then happened to look at the reviews. I was preparing for a bad experience, but actually it wasn't so bad.
