“good hotel for resonable money”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I visited the university, so the location was perfect for me. Price is lower than in University hotel (5 minutes to go). Rooms are good and well equipped. Breakfast is good enough (for me it was very sweet). Personal is responsive. It is very simple to go to the downtown - 10-15 minutes by bus. Bus stop is near the hotel. I can recommend this hotel and in future I'd prefer to stay there again.

Room Tip: I lived in the ground floor room - all was OK

Mike at the front desk was over the top promptly helpful. The first room did not meet our needs, and he quickly found one that did.

Brian and Cory on the shuttle service were fantastic. I watched them calmly accomodate extra needs from several clients, and they never lost a smile. The shuttle services are worth the price of the stay. There were many families of patients from the nearby hospitals and clinics who have been here often. They say this is their choice of hotel when coming for appointments.

Rose the housekeeper kept the breakfast area very tidy and our room appealing.

The hotel rooms need fresh carpeting or the current carpet stretched and tightenend. The cigarette smoke from smokers' rooms seemed to creep into our room thru the bathroom vent.
It was very nice to have a refrigerator and one cup coffee maker.

I stayed at the Days Inn Minneapolis/UofM for working a career fair at TCF Bank stadium (which is right across the street). Except for the major construction going on, the hotel was easy to spot ( I did have to go around the block to get to the right access way into the parking lot). Room was decent. The staff are great and very friendly to answer any questions you may have. I skipped the breakfast, as nothing was too appealing to me. Caribou coffee is a short walk away--as well as other restaurants (chains and MN favorites) since it is right on campus. For a great price, you get a nice stay! I would definitely stay again, if I am in the area near campus.

I would like to thank the Days Hotel staff for the wonderful stay I had at their hotel. The hotel is situated near the university campus, which is a safe and beautiful area. The hotel itself is quite old but is VERY well maintained and I was always comfortable staying there.

The Days Hotel is not a 5-star luxury hotel but is rather a hotel that aims to achieve 1000% for the basics. In particular, the staff were incredibly professional and friendly, the room was always clean, there were strong electronic key card locks on the doors with an in-built electronic safe in the room, the bed was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great.

I found the free breakfast to be perfect for my needs, with fruit juice, coffee and tea, toast with jam, bread rolls, waffles (fresh with waffle mixture and a machine), oats, FRESH fruits (apple and bannana), different kinds of cereals (cheerios, bran, frosties and another kind that I cant remember). I stayed for 6 nights and always enjoyed the breakfast!

The free shuttle service was brilliant and made transport around Minneapolis so much easier for me. The drivers were always EXACTLY on time for taking me and fetching me from the downtown area, which was very much appreciated.

One of the greatest aspects of the hotel is the professional staff. They were very friendly and helpful and should there be any issues, I am certain that they would do everything in their power to make sure that their guests have a comfortable stay.

I will definitely stay at this hotel the next time I am in Minneapolis.

Thanks so much for taking time to tell us how we are doing.

Our convenient shuttle service is also a fantastic bonus and I'm glad you took advantage of it while staying with us. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you again next time you are in the Minneapolis area. Take care!

Great location, wonderful staff and super clean and comfy rooms and beds. The convenience of the shuttle was a big plus and the breakfast is perfect for us people always on the go!!! The faucet handle for the shower was a tad bit quirky but, nothing worth crying about. I enjoyed the place immensely and will be back for business and pleasure!!

Great location, decent breakfast, clean accomodations, good price make this a handy place to stay in the city. What really makes it nice is the free shuttle that took us to the Guthrie Theater and Target Stadium. The shuttle will also pick you up before 10 p.m. if you just give them a call. When our student son decided to stay with us, our room was upgraded at no extra cost. The desk clerks were very accomodating.
