“Mall of America Top Location”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed at the Country Inn & Suites located at the Mall of America. We were very pleased with this hotel. There is a shuttle to the Mall of America every hour, both going to the mall and coming back to the hotel from the mall. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff members were very friendly and helpful. There are excellent restaurants both at the mall and located adjacent to the hotel. The hotel is also a short walk to the mall if you do not want to wait for the shuttle.

Room Tip: Ask for a king suite. It is the same price as a regular room and has an extra room with a couch and...

This Country inn and suites is the largest one I have ever seen. The staff at the front desk were polite and helpful. check inn was quick and efficant. They provided me with sugestions of local restraunts and directions to them. The room I had was a suite with a king bed. seperate rooms with both having TV's. The rooms were very clean and for the most part well maintaned with a few scuffs on the door and a couple of carpet stains but I would consider this normal wear and tear. The breakfest was hot and cold stuff. I have to say I was impressed with the breakfest that is included with the room. The location to the Mall Of America is great. 5 minute walk accross the street. there are 2 hotels (TGIF and IHOP) attatched to the hotel. TGIF was good and very convienient. I saw that there was a indoor pool with kids enjoying it. They do have adult hour at 11pm. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again plus recomend the place to others. The only negative thing I have to mention is voices carry very easliy in the hallways but it was not a problem for me. I think this can be improved by putting seals under the door.

Room Tip: If noise from the halway is keeping you up put a towl at the bottom of the door

We have stayed at this location for the last 5 years and it is never a disappointment. The staff is always friendly and helpful and our room is very clean and maintained. The breakfast is fresh and tasty and we always appreciate how tidy it is kept during the serving times. At most hotels when the food runs out they never replenish it or they are slow to do so. We have never experienced that here. One last thing.... the same gentleman that runs their aiport shuttle always picks us up and takes us back to the airport. He is always so helpful with our bags and does it with a smile!
If you are looking for a nice place to stay that is within easy walking distance to the MOA, you won't go wrong with staying here!

Hotel is across from the Mall of America and also has TGIF & IHOP attached to the hotel. The breakfast everyday was great. Close to the interstate and airport. This the 2nd time we have stayed here and will return.

This particular Country Inn & Suites is directly across from the Mall of America on the south side. There is an IHOP and a TGIFridays outside the hotel, so between the Mall and food choices, the location is excellent. The hotel has been well kept up, and the staff are friendly. I had booked two rooms with a request for them being nearby, and we were given adjoining rooms. Even though the hotel itself is older, considering the Mall of America area (I stayed there when my children were young, and I am now a grandmother), it has been well maintained. The free breakfast is a nicety, and there is a copious amount of food.
Bottom line, location, location. No need to drive to the Mall. Just park and walk across the street.

Very nice Holiday Inn & Suites, perfect for visiting MOA, and also very close to the airport. The Hiawatha Light Rail Transit stop is just outside the hotel, besides the hotel shuttle can take you there on top of every hour 10am - 11pm.
Comfy beds, free WI-FI, complimentary breakfast, fitness center and two pools make your stay cozy and nice. On top of that there is TGI Friday's and IHOP restaurants on the property, or you can order room service.
