    I suppose if I had to pick something, the cleaning staff was very friendly and did a nice job making the rooms up, even if it did take them until 3pm to get to my room.

    Basically the whole experience was terrible. This hotel should be demolished and a new one built. The room was falling apart, the tub leaked, the beds were worn and uncomfortable, the decor felt like it was straight out of the 70s....in a bad way. The pool is little more than a puddle and would have been better not to be there at all. The continental breakfast was NOT a breakfast at all. Sure there was coffee (bad coffee) and orange juice, but the only food on offer were some really awful pastries/danish/bear claws. They advertised a continental breakfast, but it was simply not satisfactory. Lastly, the staff was mostly unfriendly and seemed disturbed when asked a question. Bigger, nicer hotels next door have cheaper rates.

    Came to visit/meet daughters boyfriends family and to browse in the Mall of America

    Pool water was too warm, and the pool was smaller than expected, but otherwise everything was great!!

    Although the original cost per room was reasonable it became more expensivve than other hotels for me in the long run because I had to pay taxi fees to get to the airport as there was not an airport shuttle from this hotel. There were no restaurants close and the vending machines were not located within the hotel premises. When I was ready to check out I had to wait for several minutes for the desk clerk to come to the front desk as my taxi waited in the parking lot. I was not offered a non- smoking room when I checked into the hotel and had to ask to change to a non-smoking room after vviewing the room selected for me. I felt the day clerk's pr for the hotel was very poor and she was not well trained for her role as a hotel representative.

    Nice clean accomodations. The price was right. Close to Mall of America which was a big plus for us.

    Too small pool. No workout facilities.

    It was clean and quite and affordable.

    the rooms are filled with unwanted furnitures , hence less space.

    price and location

    Well... It was fine until we left. As we were leaving I noticed i had spots all over my body. I think there was some kind of insect in the bed because i have bites everywhere. I even had to go to the ER last night because they are so bad. The motel needs to be bombed for insects. I should be refunded the price of my stay. I don't know if I will be comfortable staying in another motel ever because the intensity of the bed bug bites. And this shouldn't me labeled as a hotel. It should be a motel because high class people would not stay there.

    I wish to especially commend the man who was the attendant the night I arrived, Friday, July 16th. I arrived late (plane was late) and I had arisen early that morning, and gave a full day's presentation. I took an evening flight from Chicago and I had to be out be 5:30 am for another full day's presentation. He could not have been more caring! I had called from Chicago for directions from the airport to the hotel. He was gracious and welcoming. He made you want to stay at your hotel. When I asked about the time for the continental breakfast, and he said 6:30 - 9:30, I mentioned that I had to leave by 5:30 am. He assured me he would have fresh coffee, which he did. Is there anything else I can do for you?

    It was close to the airport an the huge mall.

    There was a funny water noise in my room which went on all night. No ides what it was but I couldn't turn it off.

    Rooms are large and clean

    Bathroom too small. No elevators, too many stairs. Hall smelled mildew. To get ice u have to leave building and go outside. Only had 1 washcloth, called front desk, said I had to come and get it so had to go outside to another building.Wasn't aware this was a motel instead of a hotel.

    The motel is an older unit. Because of this it is a little run down. However it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the stay was good.

    No accessible electric outlet by mirror over nightstand and outlet in bathroom was not by the sink. Shower floor appears pretty old and worn.

    The staff was efficient and friendly.

    The room was not at all good; the wall heater cover fell off when I walked by and was so close to the end of the bed I did not use it in spite of cold weather. I felt very unsafe; the door had marks like someone had tried to pry it open. First time I have slept with a light on for a very long time.

  • Single
    6.6

    Close proximity to the airport.

    Poor service at the desk. The website talked about a pool, but I didn't see it and there was no information about the hotel services in the room. A little more customer service would have been good and more than one person working at the counter.
