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.

Just a roof over your head!

The hotel was undergoing renovations. Light fixtures hanging in the halls. Paint tape on doors. The room was clean, but the facility was in disarray. The power went out due to a storm. We had to check out due to no power or hot water. We then moved to a Days Inn near Vadnais Heights. This hotel looked better, but the shower did not drain and the hair dryer continually shut off. The food was sparse and not very appealing. All in all, I would not recommend Days Inn hotels. Spend a bit more, it will be worth it.

Hotel needs update

The hotel was in good location. The room was ok; we had some issues with the safe not working, no kleenex, not enough toilet paper, the ceiling looked like somebody took something and scraped it. The pool was not my favorite to swim in it; the water was very cloudy and I couldn't see anything when I was going to get rings off the bottom. The pool was not filtered very well. The breakfast was good. The staff was very friendly. Overall, I would prefer better quality for the price I paid.

Dirty, Stinky Roadside Dump

The only real positive about our stay was that it was only one night. Tub wouldn't drain, the beds were hard as marble, fridge in the room that wasn't much colder then room temp, old tube TV, dank smelling halls and it didn't feel safe. My dad, two sons and my nephew were traveling on a baseball trip. Thankfully Target Field is amazing, because this room was a bad first impression on a nice town. I don't see how they justified the price compared to other places I've stayed.
