Welcoming guests to Bloomington for over 50 years
It's hard to believe that circa 1960 this Bloomington hotel would one day end up next to the largest tourist attraction in Minnesota -- the Mall of America. The Ramada Mall of America is a three-star hotel with convenient access to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the ultra modern Light Rail. Summers are supreme at the hotel's Backyard Pool and Bar where guests can kick back at the outdoor pool, cocktail lounge and gas fire pits while enjoying live entertainment. The indoor pool and whirlpool are open year round.

Highlights

  • Free guest parking
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet access in all guest rooms
  • BackYard Pool and Lounge open rain or shine from Memorial Day to Labor Day
  • Free shuttle service to MSP Airport and the Mall of America

Rooms

The 255 guestrooms at the Ramada Mall of America include modern amenities. Guests enjoy a 32 inch flat-screen TV, cable, free high-speed wireless Internet access and clock radios with MP3 connection. Convenient coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board are also included. Some rooms include a comfy seating area, wood beam ceilings and a spacious work desk.

Features

The Ramada Mall of America boasts the only outdoor pool in Bloomington. Recreation is ample indoors, too, with a heated indoor pool and fitness room. The on-site Boulevard Cafe and Pub offers American and Southwest-inspired cuisine, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The most popular site is the Backyard Pool and Lounge. The unique resort-like atmosphere features live music, gas fire pits, and food and drink specials, all open rain or shine from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Not too much to complain about

Sure, the bathroom is small and the hotel a little old, but that´s pretty much the negative. Very close to Mall Americas, shuttle to the airport and the shopping center, super extra friendly staff, very clean rooms. We were quite happy to stay at Ramada MSP and we will certainly stay there again.

Just what we needed

We came back to the Ramada after a very good experience a couple of years ago only to find the hotel fixed up and even nicer. It's a beautiful building in a great location. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The room was clean and above all quiet. Even at home my wife has a very hard time sleeping with noise, but she slept through the night without interruption. Perfect if you are visiting Mall of America.

No Complaints

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and got a good night's sleep. The location was very convenient to the airport (and to the suburban sprawl nightmare surrounding Mall of America). Although I would not choose to stay in that particular area as a tourist, it worked out well as I was flying in for a few days on personal business. The rooms were clean and the staff was courteous.

Need to improve on overall cleanliness.

Overall will need to improve on cleanliness of hotel. Could say more but will give them a chance to make changes that was suggested by myself and many other guests at the time of my stay.

Great outdoor areas

The new remodel looks great but the rooms are still outdated and cramped. Firepit a and pool area was great until the propane ran out and hotel staff couldn't replace it. Overall good hotel for the money but only because it has an outdoor pool/bar/patio and the staff are excellent.
