"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"

"I loved this hotel. The front desk clerks were so nice and helpful. This is the place to stay.2021-03-10"

"We arrived at the hotel at 3 PM, but had to wait to get into our room until 4:30 PM. The carpet was damp and smelled like a wet dog. The kitchen faucet leaked, the refrigerator needed defrosting, and there was no microwave. Had to go to the front desk for fresh towels and sheets, and also for dishes and a toaster. The grout in the bathroom was filthy. The maintenance man was helpful, friendly, and competent. No public restroom in the lobby. Stay somewhere else.2015-07-22"
"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"

"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 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"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
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.
