Arrived at the Courtyard late on a Monday evening recently (12midnight). This is a really old hotel, and I don't know how much they spent in remodeling it (as they did at all Courtyards), but boy did this place need a makeover!

The hotel staff was great/courteous/friendly at check-in/check-out. Perhaps the highlight of the stay was having breakfast onsite at the restaurant. The host was so incredibly nice!

Overall... Great place to land when in MSP!

Stayed here for one night while looking for furniture in Minneapolis. Very accommodating front desk and room was very clean and spacious. Had one issue with parking due to a tournament in town, the parking lot and surrounding areas were completely full.. but we were able to park underground free of charge.

Would definitely recommend for anyone needing a place to stay and its even close to the Mall of America and IKEA!

I stayed here the night before an early flight, and unfortunately, got very little sleep. The hotel is right next to a busy Interstate, and my room was on the side facing the road. Maybe a room on the other side of the hall would have been quieter?? Also, the hallways were loud with kids, and the AC unit was extremely loud also. However, the hotel is very clean, the staff very friendly, and the location was convenient. I landed a great price on Hotwire, but would likely have been disappointed to pay much more.

Room Tip: rooms facing road are very loud

We were in Minneapolis for a brief time, using it more as an airport town than anything. We had a great experience at the Courtyard. It's clean, updated, spacious, friendly staff, easy parking. So convenient to the airport. For our evening activity, we went to Mall of America - where neither of us had ever been - and that's really easy to get to from this hotel. It was a sight!

Stayed here 2 nights in between business trips just for some downtime and shopping. I picked this hotel since hotels.com had a special and I needed to earn some Marriott points. The hotel has a free airport and mall shuttle so I didn't need a car-- very close to the Airport and Mall of America. The staff was excellent from check-in through the entire stay- very helpful and friendly. My king room was fine, very clean (I saw the staff both days cleaning some of the rooms after people checked out and I didn't realize how thorough it was). The room has free LAN internet (I'm not even sure if it had wi-fi) so I was fine. On the negative, the bed wasn't the most comfortable I've experienced with Courtyard but it was sufficient for sleep-deprived people such as myself. And the thing that annoyed me most was the loudness of the fan in the bathroom. Gee, that thing is loud! I guess that's not so unusual and doesn't really matter when you're in the shower but it just stood out to me (the AC was pretty loud also). Anyway, other than that, everything was find. I ate at the restaurant twice (dinner and breakfast) as well and there again, great service and the food wasn't half bad. Breakfast is about $11 but you can get made-to-order French Toast, omletes etc as part of the buffet.

I agree with other posters that there are several options in this area so Courtyard isn't particularly better or worse. Like I said, it was good, inexpensive and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Don't rent a car if you're coming just to shop.

Location is good, but you have many other choices. It was very hot not AC and the elevator was not working. I was on shock!!! I agree you can never go wrong with a Courtyard but this was the exeption to the rule. Do not stay in this hotel!!!!!!!

My friend and I stayed here while we attended the National Boxtops University. The staff was super friendly, the facility was great and the room was big and clean. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel!
