It is a clean, helpful place to stay. They have an excellent breakfast every day, not just on weekends. They had scrambled eggs & sausage so we didn't have to eat only carbs! Their hot tub was waiting for parts, so we missed being able to use it.

When checking in I had to ask for soap by the sink. Rooms are dated and mine has musky smell. Furniture very old. Pillows cheap and flat. Toilet seat looked permanently stained. Very bad value for price paid.

This was a great option for a quick overnight stay. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and the breakfast was good. The exterior of the building could use a little work, but overall,it was not too bad.

Minneapolis, Mn80 contributions27 helpful votes
The room was very clean. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The hotel was very full, so we did hear a small amount of noise, but nothing bothersome. The sink area is pretty small outside the toilet and shower room, so if anyone was at the sink, they had to move for that door into the toilet and shower room to open. There was a large window seat. The breakfast was standard fare -- waffles, juice, pastries, cold hard-boiled eggs, breads, bananas, cereal, milk. Also coffee and tea, which was English Breakfast tea, a nice touch. The staff was friendly. The only thing we didn't like was that the air conditioner cycled off and on, but it was quieter than some others.

Our toilet seat was broken for three nights before it was replaced. The internet was beyond unacceptable. Many of us left the hotel during our down times to get wifi elsewhere. Even when I woke up late one night, I could not get through a 30 minute program, I even tried using my phone.

This is one of those hotels which is in dire need of investment to keep up with everything else around it. When we went, everything was booked and this hotel was still expensive, but was in poor shape. We were part of a group and everyone had at least one thing wrong with their room. Internet was very slow.

Room seemed fine initially. Small but adequate since all we needed was a nights sleep. Didn't even check in til almost 11pm. But then I tried to get into the bathroom and it was stuck. Had to use alot of force to open/close and the door jammed at the bottom and it started falling apart. Then, went to shower and had no shmp/cond or soap so I had to run down myself to get it. But the kicker was the balled up wad of hair, that was NOT ours, in the top corner of the shower. From there, it just makes you question everything about the place, regardless of how friendly the staff was. Told the guy at check out and all he said was OK. Thank you. With no apology or anything. Needless to say, corporate will be called.
