“ok but nothing special”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Rooms are somewhat smaller than other LQ hotels. If you want a fridge/microwave, you have to pay more. If you like a soft pillow, bring your own. We had a double bed room. 3 pillows to each bed. the pillows were like rocks, at least the beds were comfortable. The heater in our room was on it's own program. set at 65, yet the room was more like 90 degrees. end of November and we turned it off and opened the window just to get comfortable, and I am always cold. Breakfast is very basic. If you want coffee in the evening, they have a mini store you can buy it. Overpriced in my opinion for what you get.

I had a very enjoyable stay. Service was top notch and the accommodations were great. I liked the location because it was only a few miles from my son. There was a nice variety of food to choose from for breakfast.

This has always been a great hotel to stay at. My family has stayed here for business and pleasure...can't go wrong! Breakfast was very good and staff friendly. When I asked directions to a local store, the receptionist/worker explained and drew me a map - very easy and helpful.

One of the two La Quinta near the Mall of America and probably the better of the two. It was a hotel building rebranded to La Quinta so the lay out was not typical of the chain. The room was big and bright. Comfortable for a more than one night stay. The location was a bit isolated in terms of restaurants and shop within walking distance but really convenient with a car. Couldn't have picked a better location for the visit to the area.

This hotel is clean and the breakfast selection is decent (but no hot meat). There are brand new HDTVs with about a 30-40 channel selection. What I didn't care for at this motel was the noisy air conditioner/heater that was in my room. I'm a very light sleeper and with ear plugs, I could still hear it. I tried turning it off, but every five minutes it would turn on anyway!

This hotel was very clean, neat and quiet. We made our reservation through a Park, Sleep and Fly" web site and they misunderstood and gave us a smoking room. When we checked it at the desk, the clerk very cheerfully changed our room to a nonsmoking room, with no problem. They also gave us very good directions to a resturant we wanted to get to. We found the shuttle to and from the airport very convenient and a good value. In all, a very good experience and we plan to stay there the next time we are flying out of MSP airport.

I travelled to the cities for a business trip and had a wonderful experience. For starters, I booked a standard king room with really nothing to expect but was then bumped up to a larger king room on the upper floors which had a microwave and refrigerator (which I did not use but definitely a nice perk for those traveling, eating at restaurants, and want to preserve some leftovers). The staff here is phenomenal and will attempt to accommodate as much as possible. The location is fantastic in my opinion. It is very close to MOA and MSP, which is ideal for business travelers, and they also have Stay & Go packages, which allow you to leave your car at the hotel while on your trip (for an extra charge, but still cheaper than the airport). Overall I had a fantastic experience and highly recommend it.

I will be staying here in February when heading out for Mexico to take advantage of the parking.

Safe travels!
