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

I missed my flight connection in Minneapolis and there were no other flight options for the night so, the choice was to sleep in the airport for an early morning flight, or find a nearby hotel. Using an app to locate nearby hotel options I found the Snelling Motel and made the reservation over the phone. It is close to... More

The owner of the hotel drove us to the airport at 5am to catch a flight. It was a very cold morning, and we were going to Florida, and otherwise we would have waited in the cold for the train. He wouldn't take money. The couple who runs the hotel are both very helpful and friendly, and our room was... More

Establishment which holds the road. The welcome is correct with pleasant hosts. The room is clean, a little bit old-fashioned, except that for the price it is satisfactory. The bed is comfortable. The only negative element is the streetcar nearby which circulates late a night and which restarts early the morning. In return, the closeness of the streetcar makes all... More

We were booked for two nights but left after one. Should have thought more carefully as this hotel is right on the tracks and our room was about as close as you could get. We thought the trains might stop but no they run all night and the noise combined with the clanging of the crossing meant no sleep. Narrow... More

This motel is a little outdated. It was a great value. Room was clean and comfortable. It's also very convenient if you need public transportation. Room size was good and everything worked good. Good location in a quiet area.
