“Great Theme but... dirty facility!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Went to this motel for a one night overnight stop and ended up leaving later that night. Went to our "suite" and found it really run down with filth everywhere. It looked like the carpet had not seen vacuum in weeks. The windows had large peeling paint chunks. It was a shame since the theme of being in an old train depot/maintenance facility was appealing.

Immaculate breakfast bar with great oatmeal and "just right" ripe bananas PLUS pleasant manager make up for an older building. The manager met us at the door ~ 1 AM when our train was 2 1/2 hours late arriving in St. Paul!

I stayed here one week night while in St. Paul for an academic conference. The building is unusual, sort of like a converted warehouse or barn, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and continental breakfast was on the better end of typical. It was nothing amazing, but overall I was very happy with my stay.

My son and I stayed here while visiting Macalester. It's very conveniently located, about 10 minutes' drive from Macalester and downtown Minneapolis.There's nothing much right around the hotel, so it was very helpful to have a car. Our room (#266) was clean and comfortable, but very noisy from fairly early (8 am?) to around 9 pm. We couldn't see the pool, but could definitely hear it! Ask for one on the other side of the hotel if you think this would bother you.

Very cool hotel built in an old train station. We went to see the Madonna concert and the Xcel Centre listed this hotel as "in the area." It's not really in the "area" but that's not the hotel's fault. It was a $13.00 cab ride from the hotel to the venue...not awful. The hotel was clean, service was great. There was a pool, hot tub, and great free breakfast. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 220 overlooked pool. Good room. No elevator in hotel.

My husband, Mum, Dad and I arrived on the 6th September after a 27 hour journey from the UK. It was the early hours of the morning and we had no problem checking, the bed room was clean, spacious and warm and the bed was comfy.

The numbers in our party did fluctuate and decrease over the two weeks that we were there, but the hotel staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, they advised us on the best forms of transports, ordered taxis for us and even one the odd occasions they gave advice and ordered take-away's for us.

The hotel lobby was clean, the breakfast was great and the breakfast hosts were great. The hotel was clean.

I really can't say enough about this hotel. My husband and I will be staying there again the next time we go and visit my brother.

The only fault was that the bar didn't stay open long enough and didn't open on a Saturday, but that's an English trait.

A big thank you to all the staff for making us feel welcome and doing all that you did for us.
