Best Western Plus Bloomington Hotel
Ranked #11 of 42 Hotels in Bloomington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Pro: the 2 pools (good size, smaller kiddy one has water slide, lots of towels around), friendly staff, easy access to car from side exits (especially if a long walk to the front desk), rooms are clean, room rate reasonable.
Across the street from MOA but I still drove since 90 degrees F outside, attached Red Rossa restaurant is quite good and inexpensive, ate their 2x, front desk provides two $5 off coupons.
Save some money & book a city view, didn't see the advantage of paying for a pool side (not a long walk from our room).

Con: Soft bed (mattress label says "plush"), minimal counter space in washroom, shower head near the ceiling so not easily adjustable.

Breakfast: 7:30am = 1/3 full, 7:45am 2/3 full, 8am: no seats, line-up for food.
Its ok, pretty typical, selection didn't change with bread cereal, yogurt, waffles, sausage (not good), egg wrapped cheese.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Bloomington for 4 nights in August 2013. The hotel was easy to find, just south of the Mall of America. The hotel is in a great location, a short walk (5 minutes) to the mall doors from our room. Parking is free and included with your stay.

Check-in was easy and very friendly. We had requested a rollaway bed online for our 3-year old when we booked, and it was already in the room before we even showed up. Great job!

Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the pool. It was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable, and even with the close proximity to the airport, noise was not an issue at all. Good sleep was had by all members of our family. The only issue with the room was the high humidity when the sliding door to the balcony was opened. This, of course is to be expected due to the pool being right there, so we just kept the door closed.

We ate at the hotel restaurant and the breakfast buffet. The food at the Red Rossa, an Italian-themed restaurant, was good. The hotel gave us a $5 off coupon when we checked in. The complimentary breakfast buffet was tasty and had a number of options, but it was very busy. There isn't enough room in the buffet area for all the customers during peak times. We had to eat breakfast poolside a few times, but that was fine as it is just next door to the buffet.

Overall, good value, good food, excellent service and cleanliness. We would recommend staying here.

This is a well-valued hotel. Even when it was walking distance to the mall, they provided shuttle service as well. Free parking. Staff were friendly and approachable.

Room is clean and even when we were given a room close to the byway, the traffic didnt quite affect our night's sleep. Some downsides are that the the room and bathroom doors are hard to close and you need to give it a hard shove; sound proofing between rooms can be better.

Breakfast was beyond expectations in comparison to other airport hotels I have stayed in. Besides the usual cereal and bread, they served warm sausages and cheese omelets. Another warm plus is the waffles station :) Couldn't have asked for more for the price we paid.

My family visits the Twin Cities frequently, and we can always count on enjoying our stay at the Best Western across from the Mall of America. The staff are always friendly, the pool area is great fun for kids, clean and has plenty of chairs for parents and grandparents. The continental breakfast is very good. And the restaurant, Red Rosa, is fantastic.

This hotel is very conveniently located, and the shuttle bus service is fantastic dropping us off at the MOA and the shuttle bus to the State Fair. Unfortunately, one has to call to arrange to be picked up, and being cheap Canadians, we chose just to walk back to the hotel after our activities rather than face expensive international phone charges. Breakfast had a great selection, and we were all happy with the choices (especially the bananas). The pool was a complete disappointment. There was nothing for our oldest to do, and one little squirt gun and toddler-aged wade pool which was very salty. I didn't go in, but my family thought it was very very salty and their skin felt coated. There were kids yelling and running down the hallway just after 10 pm. I didn't call the front desk as it happened only a couple of times. It woke us up. I don't think we'd stay here again.

Staff was friendly and professional. Rooms were clean and nice. Pool area was great for the family. Close walk to Mall of America. Free hot breakfast and free parking saved us a bundle and the breakfast was really good. We would easily stay here again as we were really impressed.

We just stayed there on Monday night and this place is beautiful. The rooms are clean, very nice and updated, beds are very comfortable. We stayed pool side and that was so convenient with the kids. Would request a room like that again. With the door shut you could not hear the noise from the pool, very quiet. The breakfast was wonderful, they had a lot to choose from and it was all very good. The kids had fun making waffles. It was a bit crowded being the summer time, but well worth the wait. Kids loved the pool and it was so close the mall of america. Very nice and will for sure be back again. Thank you for such a wonderful stay and I can not wait to be back again. Excellent place, don't hesitate to stay here. Great staff, food and rooms. A+++++

Room Tip: Pool side is so convenient with small children. It was nice to use the bathroom and when they need a...
