“Excellent Value”
Reviewed May 17, 2008

Rooms all freshly remodeled and very nice. WiFi worked well and was free. Nice large breakfast area with waffle makers and big screen TVs. Helpful staff. Easy commute over to Sheraton on the opposite side of the freeway once you learn the way. Nice pool area. Many restaurant choices nearby.

  • Liked — Great rates, large breakfast area with waffle makers.
  • Disliked — Sauna control needed work.

The hotel itself was very clean. The rooms (furniture/bedding) were very clean also. Very little noise was heard from the Interstate or from other patrons. Breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast (waffles, cereal, fruit, pastries, toaster that take 15 minutes to toast!) but it did its duty.

Next time I am in the twin cities, this will be on the top of my list to stay.

We stayed at this property wih a group from the Iowa Rockets Volleyball Club. We spent 3 nights there. It is in a good location and easy to find. The Mall of America is not very far away and getting downtown was easy and fairly fast. They have several shuttle vans available, but we did not need to use them. Check in was easy and fast. I believe there are 18 floors, and with 3 elevators, getting up and down was quite fast. The hotel lobby and hallways seemed very clean. Our non smoking room had no offensive odor whatsoever. The room was pleasant and clean. The microwave and mini fridge were hidden in an area just underneath the TV. Everything worked fine. The breakfast was just ok. Nothing for me that stands out. The breakfast area itself was very nice. Overall it was a very nice 3 night stay and I would certainly stay there again.

  • Liked — Location. clean room and smelled great. Easy check in/out and nice front desk workers.
  • Disliked — The breakfast. Not quite as nice as I would have hoped for.

My two friends and I stayed at the La Quinta Bloomington West from April 2-6 for a friend's wedding. The property is clean and quite accessible to both the airport and the Mall of America. Free shuttles are provided for both.

Check-in was fast and simple and the room was ready as promised. We partied late and never seemed to get ourselves out of the room in time for them to clean. They never bothered us the whole stay and actually politely slipped a note under the door after three days to see what we needed.

The complimentary breakfast buffet sounded wonderful as only one of us ever made it downstairs to give it a try. She was so impressed that she actually called up to the room to try and get us to eat!

The pool area was nice and all public areas were clean as well. Free internet and two computers were provided in a large workstation near the pool.

I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this hotel. They treated us with professionalism and smiles throughout the entire stay.

We decided to take a short spring break to Minnesota (March 22- March 25) to take in the MOA. After much searching for a hotel that was in our budget we finally decided on the Laquinta Inn and Suites. As a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 young children) we weren't disappointed!! Check in was easy, room was just as we asked 2 double beds and a crib, and the room was very neat. Housekeeping did an excellent job of keeping our room clean. The free breakfast was a plus (waffles, cereal, fruit, muffins, yougurt, bagels, toast, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, watered down juice, coffee and milk). We would even take a banana or two and save them for our afternoon snack while at the mall. The kids even visited the pool area. It was small but still very nice. The pool water was heated but the hot tub is always a family favorite of ours. Their hot tub did not disappoint us and neither did the sauna. Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again. We paid an average of 95.00 a night (stayed for 3 nights) and we requested a room with micro and fridge. Total amount of our stay was about 323.00

Decent hotel, especially for the price (90 w/tax, Sun night stay), but it does have flaws. The linens are white and clean (newer), with the standard assortment of pillows (and corresponding hardness), free airport shuttle (though most hotels in the Cities offer this), recently remodeled, etc. I stayed in a standard king, smoking room, and it was 50/50. The room didn't have that overpowering smoke smell upon entering, which was good, and a new, comfortable bed was nice too. The room is small. Very cramped! The wake-up call was probably the most involved to set for any hotel I've ever stayed in, but it did work, so I guess that's what matters. *Word of warning* (for anyone in any room)...upon first entering your room, check the window and look to see if a spotlight is below the window. The curtains do not shut "tight", and the beam from this light makes 2am look like 2pm in your room. I didn't notice until all lights were out at bedtime, so it was too late to change rooms. Be forewarned! You will not have an even remotely dark room if there is a light outside/below the window! If ordering delivery (food), specify the La Quinta off France Ave. There are two in Bloomington, and it appears most restaurants assume you are at the one off Nicollet. Overall, good value given the price-point, but it may be worth it to pony up more for a better property. I wouldn't pay more than I did for this hotel.

Booked the room on the chain website and stayed 3 nights. The room was very clean and quiet. The king size bed was new and very comfortable. The bedding was white(down comforter) with a WHITE duvet cover, so we knew it was clean. The complimentary breakfast was huge: waffles, hard boiled eggs, pastries, muffins, bagels, cereal, juices, fruit, coffee. Didn't go swimming, but the pool looked great. They had complimentary shuttle to the Mall of America and the airport. I would definately stay here again. The rates were great!
