I was concerned when I saw that the hotel had recently changed its flag from a Hamton Inn to an Americinn, but I was pleasantly surprised.The hotel is about 8 miles from the airport and about 5 miles from the Mall of America. It's at highway 494 and France Ave. Shuttle service is available. There is a Denny's right next door and Joe Sensor's Bar and Grill across the street. The staff was very friendly, especially Karen, the night front desk person. The room was good sized and the bed was comfortable.The bathroom was a little small but had been updated within the last couple of years. This is a very minor thing, but the toilet was small rather than elongated. I just thought that was a little unusual for a hotel. The carpet was a little worn, especially in some of the public spaces, but not too bad. Breakfast was the usual fare and coffee was available all day. The dining room area was not overly crowded, at least when I was there. Apparently the hotel was purchased by Americinn corporate, rather than a franchisee, and they plan on making it one of their flagship properties with new updates and the addition of a pool. I would stay here again without question.
