This is a repeat visit for me!! Whenever I am in this area, this is where I stay!! The front desk staff is warm and willing to help!! There are a few renovations going on now to keep things updated and fresh. Nothing noisy or difficult to manage. Pool is large and the bike riding is an added bonus!!

Nice big rooms, nice beds, temperature regulates perfectly great service, great pool, very good workout room. The only issues is that they could use a couple more plugs in the rooms and that the hotel restaurant is horrible if you are not a grease and meat eater. Other than that, it is great. Oh yeah. And better curtains. Light leaks...... More

The walls and floors are too thin, the carpet in the hallways is buckled to the extent that someone could trip and fall, and the temperature control in the showers is non-existent (I think I counted 10 separate surges of hot and cold during a 15 minute shower). It was WAY too expensive for the quality of accommodations.

Just a wonderful place to stay. Clean, friendly, roomy place. The air was almost of a five-star hotel; it was quite posh. In town for the Schwan's Cup soccer tourney we hose to stay here, instead of the "recommended" motels the tourney made you stay in (which coincidentally raised their prices by 50%! as a result). We were extremely disappointed... More

I would definitely stay at the Holiday Inn - Lake Elmo the next time we visit the Twin Cities again. The husband and I stayed there for one night.

I stayed here one night in late May for a business trip in nearby Oakdale, which did not seem especially close. This hotel showed up as the only one available with our company preferred rate, which is why I was booked here. I believe this was my first stay - personal or business - in a Holiday Inn. The room...

If you are in town to visit Minneapolis, I wouldn't recommend this location. It's a 25-30-minute drive to most attractions in Minneapolis. However, the hotel is very conveniently located to shopping and restaurants in the immediate area. The accommodations in this hotel are very nice, and you can tell when you first walk into the lobby that it is going... More

I stayed at this hotel on business for three night. I found its location to be great and the rooms to be clean and well appointed. However the one elevator and the awful loose worn out carpet was a problem. I can only imagine how many people must trip and fall on the carpet in the hallways. There are spots... More
