Northwood Inn and Suites

You get what you pay for...this hotel/motel looks better from the outside than its inside.

While the room was large, it was horribly dated and not even up to Motel6 or Travelodge standards. The bathroom was cramped and in serious need of being renovated ... just like the guestroom decor.

So if all you want is a place to crash for a few hours, this place might do. This motel's location is close to MSP airport and Mall of America.

But for use, this place is a little creppy...

I travel to Minnesota with my family and rented a room at this hotel. The room was a deluxe double queen it and it was very nice and big enough to stay with my family.There was a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge in the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Staff was really friendly and they have good facilities for parking . I had visited the hotel in the winter during snow , but still i could park my car safely in the snowfall. The rooms are spacious and bigger than my expectation. The swimming pool was nice and clean . They serve breakfast too !!
