Best Western Plus Dakota Ridge
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Eagan
Reviewed September 29, 2010

My husband and I stayed here while we were in the Twin Cities to watch the Vikings play the Dolphins. The hotel was extremely affordable and offered warm breakfast with eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogur, assorted breads, coffee, tea, and juice. Rooms had a microwave and fridge.

the hotel offers a free 24 hour shuttle to the Airport and the Mall of America. Our shuttle driver was extremely nice and offered up recommendations on various things to see and do. Our shuttle driver recommended the restaurant, Twin City Grill at the Mall of America. It was the best steak dinner we've ever had. Although the meal came to about $110 for the two of us (with a drink each) the steak was so good we ate there 2 out of the 3 nights we were there.

Greate hotel

Hotel is close to St. Paul, freeway convenient with restaurants within walking distance. Nice lobby, large rooms, hot breakfast, exercise room & coin laundry. Excellent on-line rates. Only down sides: our room had "hotel smell" and we could hear some noise from neighboring rooms.

Comfortable room. Check-in process was quick, efficient. They gave us a free upgrade because of over-booking for the room type we reserved. Breakfast had juices, milk, cereals, waffles, eggs, sausages, breads, yogurts. The lobby appears high class, nicely furnished. Only thing we'd change were in the room: the towels were short and scratchy. Overall, the hotel was pleasant from the time we arrived to the time we left. Next door to several restaurants and a gas station. Very close to a main highway.

I used this hotel to gather wedding guests from the airport. to downtown. Shuttle service 24/7 allowed us to do one am pick up for late night airport arrivals. There are 2 good restaurants and a liquor store within steps of the hotel for those on foot and the shuttle avaulable for local areas like the Mall of America.
One room had a smoke odor and the desk staff were apologetic and quick to provide us with another room.The rooms are clean and comfy, but the hall and elevator carpet are in bad need of cleaning....probably from spillage from the free breakfast. By the way, the breakfast was hot, quite tasty and plentiful. I was impressed that fresh coffee, fruit and muffins were available in the dining room prior to our shuttle departure at 5am even though breakfast starts at 6.

We had a great stay while visiting two colleges in St. Paul/Minneapolis. Short drive from airport and a short drive to St. Paul/Minneapolis. Room was quiet, beds comfortable and the room was clean. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was just fine and always replenished even though the hotel was full and everybody was taking advantage of the free breakfast. Several restaurants in the area, including 3 within walking distance. Shopping center was located just a distance for those forgotten items. I would highly recommend the Best Western Dakota Ridge. Oh yeah the wi-fi worked great also, plus 3 computers in the lobby for guests to use.

The hotel was nice for the price. There were only 3 small pillows on the King sized bed. When I asked for extra pillows, the desk clerk stated that when they are busy like they were, it's hard to get extra pillows. My suggestion... Invest in more pillows for the guests. Also, get to breakfast early. They seem to get backed up and run out of items about an hour after they start serving. They will try to refill items, but they have a tough time keeping up. Very good location and very quiet. The staff is very friendly. The rooms were clean. I will stay here again.

My friends and I traveled to Minneapolis to shop at the Mall of America this summer. I was a little leary about this hotel after I got it for $51.00/night, but I was blown away! The entrance has a beautiful waterfall with comfy furniture and free computers with internet. The front desk staff (especially Jenny) were so kind and helpful. If we had any problems at all, they were happy to fix them or ready to move us to a more accommodating room. They have a free hot breakfast each morning including cereal, juice, waffles, yogurt, bagels, toast, eggs, and sausage. There is also a free 24 hour shuttle to Mall of America and our driver Ron was awesome! He played around with us and made our visit so much fun! Will definately stay here again!
