“Family Gathering Pool Side”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had 5 poolside rooms for our 4 adult children and 5 grandchildren. The front desk (Taylor) was extremely accommodating and organized. We had fun at the pool. The food in the Leinkugel Lodge was good but the service was slow. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds. The free breakfast was enjoyed.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now. The location is perfect, not to car from valley fair, the rennasaince festival, or the Mall of America. Their breakfast is awesome, even have bacon and scrambled eggs, bagels, cereal. I would much rather eat there than spend money in a restaurant. I would sray there again although it seems that they have been raising their prices.

We stayed for a Saturday night on November 17th. Wow what great facilities! What really blew my mind was how nice the staff was. From the front desk to the young man serving breakfast. The rooms were clean and with a group of young people we were allowed to bring snacks in by the pool! In this tough time it was nice to be able to feed all the kids that way! We are hosting a double 25th wedding anniversary party in January and have picked America's Best Value as the place for our families to stay for the night. The kids can swim and later the adults can dance! It was all in all a wonderful experience. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who will listen! thanks again so much. Sue W.

Room Tip: We had a pool side room, but on the (guess) west end of the pool are suites with patio doors to walk...

We stopped by on November 17th to check in. The room that we checked in for was in our partner’s name. I felt that this may cause an issue to get in, however, the friendly front desk allowed us to check in to both rooms (with the help of a cellphone) both rooms where clean and neatly set. The hotel looked practically brand new, and well taken care of. The pool and spa area looked great (I will admit that the chlorine scent was noticeable, but heck, it’s an indoor pool for crying out loud!!) I liked the idea of a pool side entry door, nice touch! The food and bar service was great, along with the waiter!! The only issue we had was the bathroom sink was slow at draining. What do I do?.......Call the front desk and ask for maintenance. The nice gentleman came to our room in under 2 minutes, quick and easy, out in a flash. Sometimes people need to understand that hotels are visited by thousands of people in a years’ time. I will not knock off the service and great hotel over simple, dumb, little things. This is a great hotel, with great and quick service, and packaged nicely. I have been to cheap hotels, and this hotel definitely hits the top of my list!!

Room Tip: If you have sensitivity to the chlorine scent of an indoor pool, simply ask the front desk to place...

We had a great time in Shakopee and the hotel was more than we had expected. In addition to a great free breakfast buttet, the on-site restaurants had really good food at very reasonable prices. The rooms were clean and well-cared for but the best thing about the hotel is the staff. Very friendly and most accommodating. The grounds are pleasant, plenty of parking and since it is just off the busy streets, it was quiet, peaceful and a nice area.

We stayed at the hotel Nov 1-4. The staff was very friendly. She had us check our room to make sure it was alright. We received free breakfast....not just cold cereal but an actual hot buffet. Many items and options to choose from. We ate lunch in the bar area and had dinner in the steakhouse. Huge portion of prime rib with prices very reasonable. Live bands on the weekends. Large pool with two hot tubs. Location was very centralized for anything you may need. Close to Mystic Lake Casino, Canterbury Downs Horse Track, Valleyfair Amusement Park and lots of shopping. Friends and family came and visited with us and they were also impressed. I was so impressed I booked for late next year for a family reunion. Thanks Americas Best Value....you really out did yourself with hospitality and we thank you!! See you soon!! :)

Room Tip: We had a suite...very nice!

My husband and I spent Sunday night here after visiting the Renaissance all day, thanks to 2 complimentary tickets from the hotel, which we they gave us before check-in time so we could go and have fun until our room was ready. Check-in was a breeze, and after a fun but dirty day of walking through dust, we showered in a roomy tub, played in a large heated pool full of happy swimmers, relaxed in one of the 2 hot tubs - each with a different temperature for your preference, then went to the Arizona Bar and had a drink while listening to a live country band with NO coverage charge! The place was obviously built for the local attractions and Canterbury Downs racing elite, as it is decorated with a castle facade complete with huge oak doors and spouting lion heads, and racing horse heads imprinted in the pool tiles. We slept peacefully in a huge downfilled bed, thanks to the extra lounging room (complete with sofa, bar, mini-fridge and microwave), which separated our bedroom from the hallway with a door we closed, and woke to a huge buffet-style breakfast complete with all the fixins, at no extra charge! Figuring in the cost of 2 adult breakfasts, 2 tix to the Renaissance, a free band, and a wonderful room, we feel that this hotel was WELL worth what we paid and wondered if they even made a proft! I don't know how much more a person could want?

Room Tip: Everything you want, and MORE!
