Pros: Decent Size Rooms, Price Cons: Very little parking, old mattresses and TV's simply thrown outside, very small swimming pool, old carpet, super-small bathrooms, bathroom doorknob needed replacing, outlets away from the wall, unresponsive front desk, etc, etc, etc. Calling this hotel "run-down" is an understatement. From what I can tell, they are trying to slowly remodel the place on... More

Definitely get what you pay for. But it does have a computer and printer with free internet which was a plus. A TV and good shampoo too! Other than that, you get a bed to sleep in and a roof to sleep under. Close to Mall of America (15 min walk) and tram to downtown Minneapolis and MSP airport. And... More

My wife and I stayed here some time ago when we were attending a Karate tournament. If you are looking for something very cheap and have no expectations or you do not want amenities, you will like this... This property is just extremely aged and needs some updating and remodeling.
