The Holiday Inn- Lakeville is a beautiful facility! I would highly recommend this hotel! Having a young child, I don't always feel comfortable letting her crawl around, but the Holiday Inn-Lakeville was so clean, I didn't think twice about letting her have fun too! The pool area was perfect for our young family. Thank you to the staff for amazing service & an unforgettable family vacation!!!

Very clean inside and out. Rooms are comfortable and had several amenities i.e. fridge, micro wave and a coffee maker. Staff was very pleasant. Restaurant was OK, a little expensive, however there are plenty of places close by to eat. I was there on business and I look forward to returning.

Paid $129 for a Wed, Dec 26th stay in a Poolside King room. We checked in at 3pm, checked out at 11am the next day, and NEVER had a desire to leave this hotel (with 9-year-old daughter).

NOTE: I was tempted to give 4 stars instead of 5 because several of the games in the "arcade" - which is really just a group of those games kids can buy 4 cents worth of candy for 50 cents, and the claw machines that never yield - had several machines out of order. If you're going to dedicate space to something, at least make sure it works or put signs on it. We lost 3 quarters but of course never bothered going up front. But everything else below is truly 5 stars so figured that would be too much of a deduction for such a great place.

Room was spacious, well appointed, and comfortable. Includes mini fridge (empty) for food/beverages, and coffee maker and microwave. LCD TV that worked perfectly and clearly.

Wi-fi was easy connection and seemed fine speed wise (included in price).

But the best part was the "waterpark" atmosphere. Right out our sliding glass door are 2 pools, and large water slide, and a very big spa (16 persons easy). One pool is is a shallow infinity for any age small children, and other is about 4 feet deep with 2 basketball hoops in great condition, and plenty of balls and toys. The waterslide is pretty hard to describe in words, but every kid and some adults became instantly addicted to it. It is a manned operation, so there's an operator at the top of the stairs to regulate turns and make sure the bottom pool is clear before the next rider goes. They ran it about 30 minutes out of every hour while we were there.

Each poolside room has a little outdoor table and chairs, and the feel is of a European courtyard, only with this little waterpark and swim area right in the middle.

We ordered dinner and breakfast room service (they have attached Ruby's Redeye Grill). Food was excellent and moderately priced, in particular for room service pricing. It is twice the value of a full-service Marriott room service at about the same price point ($13 for a pizza, I had the $15 lobster salad which was perfectly done and top quality).

All of the staff - front desk, housekeeping, room service, and the pool guys - were EXCELLENT, way more than expected from a sub-$200 hotel. Friendly and truly customer focused, they came across as very engaged in their jobs and happy to help make a pleasant time.

For families looking for a super getaway affordabily, can't beat it.

Room Tip: Poolside are the clear best rooms if you enjoy being right there.

Holiday Inn in Lakeville Minnesota has been our go to place for our company Christmas party for several years now. The reason we keep coming back is because it feels like home. The staff is so supportive, reliable, professional, knowledgeable and positive it is hard to go anywhere else. When we have our parties at the Holiday Inn, we also block off rooms for our guests. We have always had good feedback from our employees on the rooms too. The hotel itself is located right off a main road just outside of Minneapolis. The condition of the hotel is very well kept, clean, and decorated tastefully. The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate your needs. Whether it is just a room or a party, they are awesome at anything I have asked of them. We have rented rooms and had company parties there for several years running. We just had our last party Dec 7, 2012. The staff once again went beyond expectations. How you ask? They helped with technical difficulties with my laptop before the company slide show. They made sure all my bar requests were met such as using glassware, having diet tonic, creating a special menu of drinks especially for my party. Going so far as to research cocktails online and experiment until they had it right. They helped me find the right decible to play my music. They always made sure the guests had what they needed, that included me. They had such positive attitudes and the staff seemed to enjoy the evening as much as the people the party was being held for. They helped rearrange the room according to my wishes and any subsequent changes I made. They were on time with everything. As the hostess under pressure, what I really liked their calm composure. They stayed calm and professional and always helped me thru the issues at hand. At the end of the party, they were willing to stay late and finish serving after agreed upon end time. They helped us actually load our gear and haul it to our cars. Did I mention how good the food was? Cause it was great! Thanks Holiday Inn Lakeville for all your hospitality and taking such good care of our party and over night guests!

I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. This hotel has very nice rooms. We stayed in a 2 room suite. The pool area is fantastic for young kids. It has a mini water park with zero depth for small kids and the bigger pool has a slide & basketball hoops for bigger kids. Nice hot tub & towels provided.

The stand out of this hotel was the staff. Right from the start during my reservation, they were so nice to deal with. The front desk staff was always friendly and very helpful. Our final contact was with the waiter in the restaurant for breakfast who was a lot of fun.

Good job & great people at this hotel !

Our family has stayed in this Holiday Inn & Suites 3 out of the last 4 years. Each and every year, we are again impressed by the hotel and way it is kept up. The pool is very entertaining for families including toddlers. It is very clean and nicely kept up (and I am picky). The hotel was extremely quiet when we stayed but it was during the week in the summer usually. It is worth the extra money to stay here. We always book ahead online to save a little bit of money.
