Flight delay

The shuttle driver was wonderful. He had already left when I arrived but circled around, with the permission of the other passenger, to pick me up. Both of us missed our flight connection due to weather so we were not in the best of moods. This driver was wonderful!

My Stay

Good experience - Nothing bad to say - The TV sat too low when you are laying in bed watching - Hot water for the shower, which is a must - Overall, would recommend and stay here again

Hard bed and scratchy linens - wouldn't stay here again

Chose this hotel because of it's close proximity to the airport and because it was economical, but you get (or don't get what you pay for). The room is somewhat spacious but the furnishing were dated. The bath towels are the usual scratchy hotel variety, but the bed was horible. Both the mattress and the linens made for the worst night's sleep. Woke up sore both mornings. I didn't have many dealing with the staff, but they seemed friendly and willing to help. NO breakfast option and there aren't many dining options close to the hotel. If I were to go back to Minneapolis, I would opt for a better hotel.

Very comfortable stay

I used the hotel only for resting after two very long days of work. The food service was helpful and very tasty and the shuttle drivers were great.

Great - Bloomington / Mall of America

The best thing about this hotel was that there were complimentary shuttles that took you between the hotel and the airport. It enables fairly straightforward access to downtown Minn. without being in downtown (and naturally the rates are lower further from the apt.)
