We stayed on a Sunday evening and felt like honored guests of the hotel. The front desk staff were very conversational and made us feel special.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times and it is definitely one of my favorites! Jenna at the front desk is awesome and that rest of the staff is super friendly too. The area surrounding the hotel is nice with lots of shopping and dining options too.

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).

I stayed here one night in late May for a business trip in nearby Oakdale, which did not seem especially close.

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.
