Great Alternative to Downtown Hotels

This hotel was 10 miles away from Downtown St. Paul where we were attending a wedding. The downtown hotel was over twice the price and that was before parking, tipping and internet expense. The Best Western Dakota Ridge was comfortable and conveniently located. The downside? No pool or exercise facilities and the free breakfast was a little on the spartan side. This is the second time we stayed at this hotel and we would do it again.

Better then we expected

We were happy enough with this hotel to stay there again. It had nice unexpected things such as a refrigerator and microwave. The room was very quiet. The breakfast was good - our only complaint was we seemed to hit the times right before the items were replenished. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Stressfull business trip

It was all that I needed it to be. The staff went above and beyond, friendly, warm and very helpful. It was so helpful during a stressful time, I couldnt have asked for more. The hotel was clean, up to date and easily located for easy access and good price.

My two-day stay

I had a fantastic time at your hotel and actually regretted the fact that I was all by myself. I would have loved to have come with my wife and children. My only slight discomfort was with the layout of the parking lot that was to the sides of the hotel. I went in for breakfast everyday after 9:30 AM and still had food to eat and that was surprising. Overall, my stay was excellent and I look forward to visiting again.

overall good

The only problem I had was insufficient air conditioning. The room was very clean, the staff was friendly, and they had free wifi and computer access with printing. Also, there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room which were great. I even switched rooms and was still too warm. It's probably ok in the winter, but the rooms are much too warm if it's warm outside. I kept the temperature set at 60 degrees and it still wouldn't cool off adequately.

Very helpful staff

First, the fountain in the lobby is beautiful and creates a restful mood. Breakfast is good; Saturday there was a terrific herb and cheese crustless quiche, in addition to the waffles and standard fare. (The side of salsa was a nice touch, too.) Coffee is hot and good. It would be nice if they had a restaurant for lunch and dinner, but they don't. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff. When my door lock malfunctioned and I got locked out of the room, the maintenance man was out of the building for a half hour. Rather than make me wait, three of them trouped upstairs and figured out how to unlock the door, with much trial and effort. They immediately moved me into another room, and made it right. They went out of their way to help, provide information about the town, pick us up and drop us off in the shuttle, and other things. They are clearly well managed, because every single person was helpful and friendly.
