This motel was very nice. The room was small but was perfect for our needs. We weren't spending much time in the room, except to sleep. Great Value for the money!

The hotel was in a convenient location. The price was great because I only slept there. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast bar was limited to bagels, mini muffins and cereal.

Great Price ... Good Rooms ... Positive Experience

This is definitely better than a typical "2-Star" hotel! It's not "Luxury", but it was clean, neat, well managed and overall a very positive experience. The morning continental breakfast is well stocked and fresh. If we wanted something, the staff was quick to help. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to any of my friends/family. Give them a chance to impress you, too!

There is a DENNY's right next door that is large and efficient ... and has a full menu. It makes "eating out" easy and quick and affordable.

Great for an inexpensive motel.

Quiet, comfortable for the price. Very handy to I kea, the Mall of America, Wal mart, strip malls with pizza places, liquor store, dollar store. All in all a nice little place that is right next door to Dennys and anything you need,

Minneapolis in March

I was very pleased with my recent visit to the Twin City area and my night at the Microtel Inn & Suites. The location was very easy to find and get in and out of. Although it was extremely close to the Interstate, the traffic noise was minimal at best. We were able to visit the restaurant next door, which was a plus for our group as we were road weary and hungry when we arrived. I was very pleased with the staff and all of the check in and check out processes. This isn't the fanciest hotel in the area, but a great bargain overall.
