We had a two day concert to attend in Farmington, MN at the Dakota County Fairgrounds. This hotel had a special going for those attending the concert! It was very close, and an overall great place to stay! Customer service was excellent! We will be back again!

Thank you for your response. Thank you for the compliment on our staff’s customer service. The GrandStay staff takes an extreme amount of price in going above and beyond for our guests. Our goal is for each and every guest to feel as though they are at home. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit.

My daughter and I stayed here in August.
Pros: Spacious suite, esp for $: If extended stay it has small kitchenette; Close proximity to MN Zoo (with shuttle if you want it) : Great breakfast (esp since it is included): Clean : Daughter loved the Bath and Body products as toiletries

Cons: small pool (although we had it to ourselves so it worked); slow elevator; smaller breakfast area; had some trouble with wifi

Grandstay gives a terrible first impression. The baggage carts are hard to steer and there aren't bellhops. The elevators are slow. The wifi doesn't work on iPhones or iPads (4 failures in our party, not just me) and the guy at the front desk can't help and the third party who manages their computers doesn't answer his phone. These are things which every Motel 6 and Days Inn figured out long ago and here is this joint with pretensions at being a hotel and price to boot and they don't know how their own system works.

It got better after a while with no help from the staff. My cousin figured out the WiFi, but he has worked at Hewlett Packard for about 40 years. The restaurant is about what you would expect from a land with white bread franchises stretching out as far as the eye can see.

What a great hotel! The shuttle service to and from the Minnesota Zoo is very convenient! I will definitely stay at GrandStay again! The pool is a bit small but it served it's purpose! The kids had a blast! We all slept great and didn't hear a peep from other guests! We were exhausted though....put on some serious miles at the zoo:).

The Grandstay in Apple Valley, MN has always been clean and cozy. The rooms are nicely laid out and the whirlpool suites are a good value for such a large room. The breakfasts are pretty good and the staff is helpful and friendly. My only advice....ask for a room not directly above the in-house bar....it's noisy

Room Tip: Stay away from the noisy bar...I don't believe it is owned by the hotel so they have no real con...

Large hotel in an a nice location. It was clean and the rooms were nice with a separate room with the queen bed, also a full fridge, microwave, stove and dishwasher in the kitchen. The pool however, is VERY VERY small. But it works to take a dip. That have a basketball hoop and golf putting hole outside which kept the kids busy.

They don't allow anyone out of their rooms after 10 pm! As group of adults outside sitting around chatting (and not being disruptive), we were told we had to go to our rooms since it was 10 pm.

I recently returned from a two month stay at the GrandStay in Apple Valley. What great service! Everyone became like family and I could not have been happier with my stay. Complimentary airport shuttle, as well as transportation to and from the zoo and Mall of America. How perfect is that?!
Very nice breakfast each morning including sausage, eggs, waffles, cereal, etc. Oh, and COFFEE! All to enjoy in the comfortable lounge like table setting. The room was comfortable. There is a small outside sitting area with a BBQ available for use. This is set right next to the small basketball court area and putting green. There is a pub attached (not hotel run) with great prices and wonderful pub fare. The hot tub is large but the pool is on the small side. All in all, I would definitely return to this hotel with no hesitations. Very well run establishment.
