“Best hotel we have stayed in”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

My husband and I have stayed in this hotel every year for the past 4 years, both at the beginning of our vacation, and again on our way home to Winnipeg. The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make guests feel at home. The rooms are exceptionally clean. The housekeeping staff do a great job. The free breakfast is by far the best of any hotel we have stayed in. The location is excellent for shopping, golfing, and downtown Minneapolis/St. Paul. My husband and I travel around the Unites States every year on our vacation, and have stayed in a variety of different hotels, and hotel brands, but this particular hotel is by far our favorite. We always book a one bedroom king suite and are never disappointed. The rooms are always spotless, and spacious. Having the 2 separate rooms is wonderful when one of us wants to sleep later, or go to bed before the other. For us, this is an absolute destination location.

Room Tip: Book early and request a one bedroom suite. Two rooms separated by a door, not just a half wall.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. We are delighted to hear that you feel at home when you stay with us. Our staff works hard to make sure that every guest feels at home. It is great to hear that you like the one bedroom suite as this is one of my favorite room types as well. We will look forward to seeing you again on your next venture out to the area.

Stayed here and purchased regular queen sized room. We asked the gentleman in the front desk if there was anyway of upgrading to a hottub room, and how much it would cost. He upgraded us for free as it wasn't a busy night!
The room was spacious, had plenty of towels, very clean. Walking distance to the shops, and restaurants. Pretty good breakfast and had a large pool! Definately coming back!

We stayed here for one night and will stay here again when we visit the Albertville Outlet Center. The Front Desk staff was friendly and the location cannot be beat if you enjoy outlet shopping.

Guest services were very friendly and helpful. Even helped us book over the phone to another property for the next day in a different town. The rooms were comfortable and clean, no issues at all.
The breakfast is nicely stocked, but was very busy. Ceral, toast bagels waffles and much more. For $119 a night including our breakfast we were happy and will be back with the overal experience.

We found this gem by chance , and we loved it. Clean, quiet , friendly staff , quick check in ( which we needed after 15 hrs on the road ). We enjoyed our breakfast , it was difficult to choose what to have , oatmeal with blueberries, pancakes, eggs and sausages , milk, juice , coffee was excellent.
One other thing I have to mention is how much I enjoyed fresh cookies and mint tea upon our arrival ! It hit the spot .
Thank you for a great stay ,

Thank you for the positive review and perfect Trip Advisor score. It’s nice to hear that you had enjoyed our “Be Our Guest” breakfast. Our improved breakfast offers so many different hot and cold options - we have something for everyone! If you are in a hurry and don’t have time to sit down and enjoy breakfast, you are still in luck since we have breakfast to go bags and freshly brewed coffee in our lobby ready for you. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return!

Super friendly; all the staff we interacted with, from maintenance to desk staff exuded pride in their hotel, their job, their appearance, their customer service; in addition, the desk staff right up to and including the manager, Kim V. showed a pride that you would expect to see in owners; We were so impressed. These people, all of them could/should provide courses to other CI&S properties. We would love to be treated to this attitude and hospitality at every CI&S that we stay at. (and we stay at this chain whenever possible).

Room Tip: Be specific in your requests and courteous
