We spent 5 days at Snelling Motel. We were searching a hotel not far from Macalester College where our son enrolled, and the net informed us about Snelling Motel. It is a small motel run by a family. The motel doesn't have amenities, no even a small vending machine. The trains run all the time, it is so noisy. They... More

Thank You Snelling Motel! - for providing a Clean and Safe place to stay on my visits to Minneapolis - your proximity to Light Rail Transit, which connects to the Airport, Mall of America and all the Downtown venues is a Plus - i also like that you are near the Hiawatha corridor but not on it - and also...

Stayed for 2 nights for football. Easy enough to get into town via tram. Lovely sized room which was very comfortable. I chose it as I had an early flight the next morning and this is ideal for the airport. The staff very polite and helpful. The only drawback for me would be there are no shops or anything around...

We stayed at the Snelling in Minneapolis to see Chelsea FC play AC Milan at the U.S. bank stadium. It was conveniently located a block away from the blue line train that took us straight to the stadium. The room was clean and the king bed was very comfy. Would def stay here again.

My son and I stayed here two nights while he had an audition. We needed an inexpensive place to stay and I found Snelling Motel. They are doing updating but it did not disturb us at all. Our refrigerator was not working and we were immediately put into another room. We were offered bottles of water for the fridge. The... More

After a terrible day of cancelled flights and long lines, and no available hotel rooms. My husband called around and found a hotel room for me. It was great to be someplace that was friendly and helpful. They are remodeling and this older motel will have a fresher look in the future. They truly care about their customers. Made sure... More

This hotel does not have 4 star amenities. The rooms are dated, the carpet needs to be replaced. But what it does have that makes it outstanding in my view is the kindness and understanding my family and I received from the owners. We were in Minneapolis reeling from a sudden death of a young person in my family. The... More

I booked this motel for a 2 day stay in Minneapolis on a cross country trip. I had read that it was convenient to the train and it is a short walk to the station. I had a ticket to a Twins game and loved how convenient that was, and cheaper than parking downtown. I had called the hotel because... More
