“Run away to another hotel if you can!”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

If you have the choice to stay at another hotel, do so!!
When I arrived to my room I had to clean the fridge and bathroom myself after finding spots everywhere. Doesn't surprise me as I only saw the maid maybe once a week, and I stayed at the hotel for a month! The AC didn't work, just blew hot air, and the TV constantly turned off. I kept complaining about it and they said nothing was wrong with it. Turns out it was a bad outlet...Sad that I'm the one who figured that one out!!

One of the grossest things I discovered was hair on clean towels!! Luckily I brought my own.
If there's more than one person, expect to pay an extra $5 a night for them!! Location is pretty decent, but no gym and no pool, there's not even a vending machine!! Not to mention the bed is hard as a rock.
I had to stay here cause it's where work put me, put if you can, stay somewhere else.

I had relocated to Minneapolis and found this to be located in a nice spot. But thats the only good part. Everything else was just a horror. When I entered the room, it smelled like a rat had been dead for 10 days.

To make things worse, the AC was running but it was hotter than hell. The lady at the front desk at first offered me the only available room - a double bed room but after a call with her manager, they figured if they gave me that, they would lose out on money and decided to let me stay in the same room and wait for their "Maintenance" manager...geez...5 days to get somebody to look at a problem... I'm about to checkout and its still not fixed..

Its too late for me, but hope this review helps you... Candlewood suites is great and will be much better to stay in..Good luck

I've stayed at Extended Stay's in several locations and the experience is NEVER the same. One hotel makes you regret even funding the hospitality industry, and the next stay is overall, very pleasant. One thing that is always consistent is that you can expect to pay $5 for internet services........ services that do not work worth a dime! You will wait, literally, 10 minutes for even Yahoo to load.

I've learned that this hotel is definately not one to stay at for business purposes.

I booked this through Hotwire which I have had good luck with before. Not so this time in fact, this was terrable. The cab fare from the airport was $25, totally killing any savings. I couldn't get in once there, the doors were locked. Finally a guest let me in. No one at he desk, I had to call. The bed was very uncomfortable and the TV was tiny. I had seen in some reviews that the food was good. What food??? There is not any food in the hotel and none within walking distance. They also charge for Internet!! What was supposed to be a good deal cost me more than an upscale hotel. Hotwire informed me it was my fault and did not seem interested in making this right.
I WILL NEVER stay at Extended Stay again and I will be booking future travel through Expedia.

My boyfriend booked this hotel through priceline for a weekend visit to the Mall of America. I don't have any real complaints about the hotel. It wasn't the greatest but it wasn't the worst either. The young lady that checked us in was extremely pleasant and helpful with directions. The place could use a bit of updating and some good air freshners! The bathroom was clean and the bed fairly comfortable. It was very quiet and everything worked as it should.

I've stayed here twice, once in summer and now in winter. I always enjoy myself at this hotel.

Rooms are nice (Comfortable, quiet, very apartment-like)
Very good location (Right near stores and close to Mall of America and downtown Minneapolis)
Decent price (Average)
Bus service available
Ok staff (Many don't know how to work the computer/printer properly so I wouldn't recommend getting anything printed from there. But overall they're accommodating)

Best: Location
Worst: Staff need to be trained a bit more
