heaters need to work in Minnesota winter

room heater didn't work...too hot, turned to air condition to get it to cool. Returning to room late at night I didn't want to have to deal with a hassle, so in the morning when I left I had just shut it off as it was unbearably hot...when I returned at night it had been turned on so again the attempts to turn it down, turn it off, turn on A/C

Missed no Pool, Hot tub or Exercise Room

The hotel was very clean, the breakfast was good, everything was as advertised. I feel an imporvement for this hotel would be a pool, hot tub or atleast an exercise room. For those who had extra time there was not allot to do.

Good bargain but needs upgrading

Got a good deal on this hotel but that's about all I can say positively about this hotel. Carpets stained and dirty, needs paint, doors chipped, just feels majorly neglected. Biggest complaint was that they advertised "Queen Suite" on "Executive Level",which I booked. When I checked in, the employee explained that "suite" means the room has a mini-frig and microwave and a little upholstered chair, and there was no "executive level" (by a longshot). Not at all what I expect from this brand.

Many restaurants within 5-10 min from hotel. Take back route to Mall of America, only 10min away.

Better than expected

When first stepping into the lobby I was impressed with the feel of the hotel and the friendly staff. The rooms were very clean. Some of the decor in the rooms was showing a significant amount of wear and tear, and the beds weren't the best. They were still comfortable however and the breakfast was very good the next morning. Was not expecting a 5 star hotel treatment so I feel for the money that this was a great place to stay on a budget.

Excellent Staff

The hotel was all that I was looking for! The staff at the front desk were wonderful, hard working and courteous. The shuttle drivers were also pleasant and very efficient in organizing pick-up/drop-offs. Whenever I come back, I plan on staying at the Best Western again!

Great location for Mall of America trip

Although the hotel did provide a shuttle to the Mall of America, we chose to drive, and it was only about ten minutes away. The best restaurants in the area were Junior's for breakfast and Granite City for dinner. Both were awesome! The hotel did provide breakfast, but was limited and did not replenish when they ran out of something. Housekeeping could have been better, and there was little concern about our room key not working. We had to try several times before we could get into our room, and they just said to keep trying.
