"Good location. I've stayed at this hotel before, but I wasn't happy this time. Our room wasn't cleaned, even after we asked twice and reminded housekeepers and the front desk. I'll stay elsewhere next time.2015-08-19"
"I had a terrible experience at this hotel. I wasn't able to check in because my ID was expired, so I had to call a friend, who drove to the hotel and booked the room using her credit card and ID. Because of this, I didn't get to my room until 9 PM. At 11:30, I went down to look at the amenities, and the clerk followed me around and asked what I was doing; when I said I was just looking around, he said, "There's nothing to see." Though my initial reservation was for 3 nights, the check-in clerk had changed it to 1 night, so I was asked to leave the next day since no other rooms were available. Stay somewhere else.2019-10-13"
"The beds were comfortable, but the bathroom was tiny. Great coffee. The staff was accommodating regarding our requests, and even allowed us to check out late.2018-08-26"

"The hotel was easy to access, the room was clean, and the price was right. The employees were helpful and concerned about my needs after surgery.2017-11-16"
"Good rates, but the quality was inferior. The hotel was supposedly smoke-free, but our room had an overwhelming cigarette smell. Our request for a room change was granted. The bathroom light switch wouldn't turn off in the 2nd room, and there was only 1 set of towels. Good check-in process.2020-09-14"
"Just 8 minutes from the airport. Great experience from check-in to checkout. The hotel room was large, comfortable, and quiet. The attached Outback restaurant was convenient. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.2019-03-25"
"Centrally located. The hotel was a good, affordable choice for us since we just needed a place to sleep and shower. It had been nicely updated. Give it a try.2018-07-23"
"The hotel was undergoing construction; it was dirty in the only hallway with access to my room. I never got the wake-up call I requested, and the alarm clock didn't work. Not what I expected.2016-12-18"
"The hotel was outdated, and the bed sagged in the middle. The shower and sink didn't drain well, and there was no fan in the bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful, but I still wouldn't stay here again. 2015-07-30"

"About 3 miles from the airport and 6 miles from the VA hospital. Easy access to the 494. Great hotel staff and nice pool area with a whirlpool. Breakfast was good and had ample choices, and there was an attached Denny's Restaurant.2017-09-15"
"Not a quality motel. The room was in poor condition. The wallpaper by the AC was peeling, and the fridge and microwave weren't clean. There was graffiti on the bathroom door, mold, and rusty ceiling tiles, and the tissue box cover was broken. The pool wasn't open. Excellent clerks, breakfast attendants, and shuttle drivers. Nice breakfast.2016-08-15"
"The motel room was OK, but I had trouble increasing the temperature. The bathroom sink didn't drain. No on-site restaurant.2022-09-18"
"This motel has declined in upkeep and cleanliness. The room had stains, the outlets were dusty, and there was mold in the bathtub. Find a better option.2022-08-22"
"I expected better for the price. The SWAT team was at the motel looking for a possible suspect, and guests weren't provided any information. I didn't feel safe with the way the situation was handled. Not enough breakfast food for guests the 1st day. There was enough food the 2nd day, but it wasn't good. The day I checked out, a housekeeper came in the room despite the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. The checkout clerk didn't ask how my stay was. No consistent shuttle to Mall of America. Poor service overall.2022-08-06"
"Short walk to the Mall of America, and there's a shuttle to the airport. I've stayed at this motel many times, and it's always been clean and fresh, with pleasant employees and a nice breakfast bar in the attached restaurant. Limited choices, but the food is good. I'd definitely stay here again.2019-05-10"

"The hotel was horrible. We booked a room for 6 nights, but we left after the first night and went somewhere much better. Don't stay here.2019-06-08"
"I was extremely impressed with this hotel. Close to MOA and the airport, and within walking distance of the mall. The rates were reasonable. For me, it was the little things, like real glass drinking glasses, ample towels, and a TV in each room. The room was comfortable and clean, and I didn't hear other guests or planes despite being right across from the airport. The staff was courteous. The pool was a bit small, but it was fine for children. Excellent breakfast. I highly recommend staying here. I'd definitely stay here again.2019-04-02"

"This was our best hotel stay in quite a while. We were so comfortable. When the check-in clerk found out it was my husband's birthday, she upgraded our room and handed us snacks and bottled water. Breakfast was amazing, and we were invited to take some snacks when we checked out. Don't hesitate to stay here.2015-11-11"

"The bathtub in my hotel room didn't drain well.2016-09-08"
"The hotel smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The rooms near the highway were noisy, and the front desk was understaffed. The airport shuttle only departed once an hour. Don't stay here.2016-07-29"
"The hotel was under construction. Didn't get a 1st floor room as requested. The whirlpool was out of order, and the front desk staff had no explanation. They finally called me at 9:15 PM to tell me it was working again. I was disappointed since the whirlpool was a major factor in choosing this hotel. Breakfast was a joke, and there was nowhere to sit. The only hot selection was waffles. Don't stay here.2016-05-18"
"The hotel employees were helpful, accommodating, and got us a taxi at 6 AM. Stay here.2022-12-09"
"The hotel seemed overpriced. The staff was kind, but there was no breakfast because of Covid. I wouldn't stay here again.2021-04-14"

"I loved this hotel. The front desk clerks were so nice and helpful. This is the place to stay.2021-03-10"
"Close to the mall and IKEA. The hotel was in need of renovation and a good cleaning. It smelled musty and like stale smoke. The AC in my room didn't work well, and the coffee maker was missing a part. There were multiple spiders in the room. The bathroom door wouldn't close, and there was mold on the wall. There was a $25 pet fee. Limited breakfast. Don't park near the trees unless you want bird poop all over your vehicle. Keep your expectations low and you'll be fine.2022-09-12"
"My non-smoking room smelled like smoke, and the counter wasn't clean. The hotel had 2 great things going for it: the friendly and helpful reception staff, and a better grab and go breakfast than most, with variety and healthy options. The common areas could've been cleaner, and the hallways needed vacuuming. The floor in the breakfast area was sticky.2021-10-06"
"The beds were clean and comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit outdated and the floor wasn't clean. There were some cars full of junk in the back parking lot. Don't stay at this hotel.2019-11-18"

"The hotel was convenient, and the airport shuttle was a plus. The room was clean, and the front desk clerks were friendly. I ate at Urbana, and it was a disappointment. The woman making my dessert put whipped cream on her hand and then put her hand in her mouth. I left an item behind and called and left a message about it with the housekeeping supervisor. After 4 calls, I have yet to hear back from her.2019-09-11"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
