Everything was fine, but the bed wasn't very comfortable. Inexpensive and good shuttle to airport.

Great value but slow shuttle

The hotel was in decent condition, breakfast was standard fare, pool looked nice, walls were thick, the location was a bit out of the way but right next to a Chili's. There is a free shuttle that can pick up from the airport on request, but it takes 20+min to get there since the hotel is so distant. The shuttle on return drops people off at the Mall of America before going to the airport so you have to leave time for that. It was the best value of all the hotels with airport shuttles, just plan ahead.

Hotel was okay

They have a complimentary shuttle from the airport and mall of America that was why we chose this hotel. The shuttle was great! The hotel itself was okay, they had a complimentary breakfast which was nice but the room we were given felt musty and completely damp, the carpet, the bedding and the whole room felt damp, we couldn't walk in socks on the floor because our socks got soaked, the bathroom did not have a fan but I'm not sure if that was the reason for the dampness. The room was clean though. There is a Chili's restaurant next door which was nice.

Not great, but good for the price

My check in was easy and staff were very pleasant. My room was at the very end of the building, but was not all that far from the front desk, pool and breakfast. The room was plain and had not been thoroughly cleaned. There were a few bits of a brown substance underneath the bathroom sink. Not good. It also showed wear and lack of concern for details. There were some some small holes in the middle of the carpet. The heat was off when I arrived, and the room was cold. It took quite awhile to warm up. The bed was pretty hard, and had only one thin blanket, no comforter. The desk chair was broken; it sat very low and could not be adjusted, and one seam in the seat was split. To me, this shows a lack of concern. A desk chair is relatively inexpensive to replace. To see a chair in such poor condition (and the dirty bathroom floor) screams to me that MANAGEMENT DOES NOT CARE. The breakfast area was pleasant. The food selection was minimal and heavy to starch and grease. They had a bowl of oranges and green apples, cooked oatmeal, two dry cereals, orange and apple juices, bread to toast (but no bagels, no english muffins, no wheat bread, no sweet rolls or muffins), biscuits and sausage gravy (but no eggs or breakfast meats) a few yogurts, and two waffle irons. The buffet was out of waffle batter for 5-10 minutes on a Saturday morning. The pool was nice. It was an odd cloverleaf shape. But it was big enough to actually swim a bit, and was not overly chlorinated. But there were no other facilities in the pool area; no bathroom, no shower, no hot tub, no sauna. There were a few chairs, one table, and a few loungers. This lodging had the potential to be quite pleasant, if not the top of the list. And the staff is trying. But the problems with the room, the housekeeping and the breakfast show a lack of concern for customer service. There are better places in the same area and in the same price range.

Disappointed

The hotel was average as far as cleanliness and location. However, the website indicated free parking. When we checked in we were informed that it would be $60 for parking for up to two weeks.

weekend with the kids

The staff was very friendly. The pool was the perfect temperature and the kids enjoyed swimming. The only downside was there was no hot water to take a bath or shower. We were told to run the water for 15 minutes, but still no warm water. The beds are very firm. Overall, I would stay here again.

Overnight for game

Finding the Hotel was a little difficult. The Clerk who checked us in was very nice & helpful. The room was perfectly clean & a comfortable size. I just didn't like how close our King size bed was to the wall. Made it difficult to get out on that side.
