“Interesting building, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We were very impressed with this hotel. Everything from EXCELLENT customer service, a good breakfast selection and the interesting history of the building made it a great stay for our families. Pool area was kept clean and the rooms were spacious and clean as well. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, affordable place!!

Nice location in a very interesting building. Nice staff, good breakfast. Room was clean and large. Parking right across the street from the front door. Easy access to Snelling and Como Streets in St. Paul. A bit of a drive to any shopping or restaurants.

I must have been overly tired, because on arriving for the first day of a two night stay I found the parking ramp confusing as to where hotel guests were supposed to park, the TV not properly connected, and a strange floor plan. However, the staff quickly fixed the TV problem, answered my questions on parking, and by the next morning I was a happy camper.

As a retired railroad manager, I appreciated the adaptive use of an old shop (rather than demolishing it) and imagine many others do too. The room was comfortable, the breakfast typical for hotels in the price range, the employees responsive and friendly, and I'll stay here again.

The hotel had a really neat environment located at an old train repair station. The property was clean, staff was excellent, the breakfast was wonderful! The pool was great for the kids. The workout room is nothing great, but still they had one. The location is kind of in the middle of an industrial area, but wasn't far from downtown Minneapolis. We stayed here after going to a football game at the Metrodome. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Pool side aren't really "pool side" but they are a great location.

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!
