I usually stay at Mariotts or Hiltons while on busines trips but they are not located in W aconia. I took a chance on an unknown name and was very pleasantly surprised! Very clean with a cozy feel. Now I am signed up for the frequent stay program and look forward to my next trip later in January.

We stayed at this hotel for one night when we ran the Nickle Dickle 5K run in September 2011. It was a great place to stay, since we were able to jog to the starting line from the hotel and walk back from the finish line when we were done.

The bed was pretty comfortable and didn't leave us wishing we'd slept on the floor instead (as many hotel beds seem to do). We were able to get back from the race in time to take part in a pretty good breakfast. It had what is becoming the "standard" Belgian Waffle station, and I'm a sucker for those Belgian Waffles! The pastries, while not necessarily the healthiest choice, were quite yummy after a 5K.

The staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. They gave us a late checkout so that we could shower and freshen up after our run without having to rush through the process. The folks at the front desk were very warm and welcoming.

We will probably stay here again for the 2012 Nickle Dickle.

Clean rooms, excellent upkeep, excellent lobby accoutrements and atmosphere, great pool and availability of hours, wonderfully quiet rooms, clean laundry facilities, great outdoor facilities for large gatherings (luncheons, grilling, etc.), rate was good, conference rooms available and clean. Staff (especially the manager) went out of her way to assist us with our needs! (An attribute that makes them an exception to the rule.) Only reason this is not a 5-star review is that there was not an easily accessible restuarant, even though it offered a daily modified continental breakfast.

Waconia AmericInn was the perfect Staycation for us. With the hot weather we were tired of being couped up at home so we called and got a great big beautiful 2 room suite. We same all evening and then went back and the kids camped out for some movies in the living room area and Mom camped out in the bedroom watching a movie there.

We had a great big fabulous breakfast with biscuits and gravy, waffles we made ourselves and so much more we were stuffed.

On top of the beautiful room and great fun stuff the staff was phenominal helpful, and patient always a smile and a can do attitude! Thanks AmericInn Waconia you are awesome we are telling everyone we know and we WILL be back!!!!!!

The service we received at this hotel was the best we have ever received anywhere! Everyone was so friendly and helpful - the desk clerk, the woman at the breakfast buffet, every employee in housekeeping - they were absolutely awesome! The hotel was also extremely clean and nice as well. Great job! We will definitely be back!

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family for a graduation event and brought our grandchildren along. There are some awesome amenities never encountered before:
in the lobby, free apples for snacking, a pool with towels available for usage.
Also a breakfast room for self-service with varied choices of food (not the usual doughnut and cofffee only) very much enjoyed by the grandchildren with a friendly and efficient attendant refilling supplies .
The front desk people and manager very guest-oriented- even late at night when a bunch of guests got too rowdy.
And the pool had long opening hours!










The location is convenient, right near the center of Waconia and fairly close to Minneapolis.


Even late at night!

Room Tip: Asking for a room near the elevator if you have problems getting around..... to shorten the walk .

We had a very nice stay. Everything was clean and laid out in a logical manner in the rooms. Everything worked perfectly. The breakfast looked great, but I only had time for coffee. No problems at all, the people were friendly and professional. It was nice and quiet too, considering that they were pretty full.
