Big rooms, clean space, and great price!! I travel as part of my job, I never expected to be impressed by a Holiday Inn. This one is well run - it shows from the moment you walk in- everyone is willing to help you, from extra coffee cups to band-aids!

About 20 minutes from MSP, this hotel is in a nice location if you need to be in the area. I would choose somewhere closer if you wanted to tour the twin cities.

Room was clean, large bathrooms & space, air conditioning worked great (and heat if you're staying not in August haha). There is no continental breakfast and I'd been falsely told there was which is why 4/5 stars. The restaurant was good but an extra $45 I wasn't planning on. Pool is big & indoors.

Also, walls are really thin & the place is kind of loud mechanically. Not sure what's up with the structure.

Thank you for your review! Thank you for your comments especially on our cleanliness as that is very important to all travelers. I am sorry about the misinformation about breakfast. As a rule Holiday Inn & Suites are full service properties and cannot/do not offer a complimentary breakfast as they all have restaurants attached to them. If complimentary breakfast is an important amenity all Holiday Inn Express properties do offer a complimentary breakfast.

Thank you for staying with us.

We booked a poolside room with senior discount for about $175/night. About $15/night off regular price. I thought it was a little spendy but had little ones and wanted the convenience to the pool. Room was clean and had mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. with a large bathroom. We had ongoing problems with our keys, they would get us into the building but had to swipe numerous times to get in the room, if we were able to get in.

Thank you for posting your comments, I am very glad the room meet your standards for cleanliness and I hope your little ones enjoyed our pool. I am sorry you had so many issues with your room keys. Unfortunately those key can be very touchy sometimes and the encoding on them can very easily be removed by things like cell phones or other things with magnetic strips like credit cards.

Please come and see us again soon.

This Holiday Inn was an excellent experience overall.
The front desk staff; cheerful, quick and efficient
The facility - modern, clean and well maintained; the décor is tasteful.
The poor looked inviting

My only wish would have been to have breakfast included, although the restaurant across the parking lot was excellent and charging to the room was possible.

Great Job!

Thank you for your postitive comments about the hotel. We are so glad you took the time to let other people know about your good experience. A little information about the Holiday Inn brand, as we are a full service Holiday Inn with a restaurant attached we cannot offer a complimentary breakfast. In your future travels if you are looking for a Holiday Inn with breakfast, Holiday Inn Express will have that amenity.

Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here for businesses combined with a family trip. Hotel can pass for a 4 star in other cities. Reception is very cute, with a ranch theme. Rooms are updated and clean EXCEPT for the carpeting. Looks ok but walking around in white socks turned them black - that's the only real complaint. Had room off pool and it did get noisy but staff closed it down right at 11 pm. Stayed with dog, hotel is pet friendly but with weight restriction and $50 fee. No typical free bfast but we opted for the bfast discount coupons at the Machine Shed restaurant next door. Overall very nice hotel.

We hadn't stayed in a Holiday Inn for ages but we were there for a special event. The rooms were really nice and big, great bathroom and shower. We also really enjoyed the pool area and hot tub. Lots of towels provided. There is a fitness room but we didn't use it. Clean and spacious. The restaurant attached - The Machine Shed - had good food and service. The food at our special event was very good also. All in all a nice surprise! Also, free wifi!

Room Tip: It's nice to have a pool view but it could be noisy.
