Halloween weekend

Stood there a couple of nights. Bed is uncomfortable and the pillows are flat. Nothing special about the room. It is right across from a Walmart, next to a Denny's and down the road from the Mall of America. Parking is also free, which is a plus. The free breakfast isn't very great. It's just a couple of cereals, milk, and bagels.

Value hotel

I was traveling to Minneapolis St Paul area and needed a value hotel near the Mall of America. I was a little disappointed that there was not a fridge in the room or an iron. I was able to pick up an iron and board from the front desk however. Also the'continental' breakfast was disappointing as it was just cereal, bagel, and coffee. One thing I was thankful for was there were smoking rooms available, however, the whole floor reeked of smoke.

Didn't get what I requested

very disappointing. Specifically asked for a non-smoking room but did not get it. Had to switch hotels the first day I was there. Toilet seat was loose and sink drained slow. I personally will never stay there again. The only good thing was the front desk agent who help me get a refund. She was very nice and helpful.

Bare bones room

This room worked for us because we only needed a bed for the night. The room we had did not accommodate a relaxed evening because there was not a comfortable chair, nor was there room for one. When we asked for a second wood chair so we could both be seated we were turned down.

won't stay here again

The motel was easy to get to and from Mall America. But we asked for 2 non smoking room and got 2 smoking rooms. They said it was their fault. The air conditioner was loud and after the rain stopped we could hear the water dripping outside our room all night. We got no sleep at all. The rooms need updated also. Breakfast was bread, bagels and cereal.

great price

The location was great, close to Mall of America which has train to baseball stadium and downtown Minneapolis. Queen size bedroom was very small and you could tell it was a smoking room. Would have liked room with 2 beds. Easy on and off expressways.

Wife's Birthday

I took my wife to Minneapolis for her Birthday. The Microtel was perfect. The rooms are small, without a lot of amenities but we only slept there. The room was clean and comfortable.

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!
