lacking some important things

Not very good. The towels were very rough to the skin. One day, I took the comforter off the bed nd laid it on the floor during sleep. the bed was made without it the next day? The treadmill broke down in very minimal "fitness center." Parked in a handicapped space all night accidently because they are only lightly marked in space and not with blue signs. No place to park near building because of design. One day (we stayed four nights) we did not received shampoo. Finally, the desk attendants are not allowed to use a chair, so it looks odd that you see them kneeling on the phone and makes you feel sorry for them. Beds were comfortable.

Not real bad just very aggravating

Shuttle service upsetting. Were told it went to mall every half hour, that didn't work. Then you had to pick a time you wanted to leave and when you were coming back. Still had to wait. Need two shuttles, one for airport one for mall. The bottom sheet would not stay on the bed. Through the night we had to get up and put it back on. The stool had flushing problems. Every morning they ran out of plates for breakfast and it took at least 15 minutes to get more. People were nice and breakfast was descent. Hallway carpet needs cleaned.

The mall was great because it was so hot outside. The kids loved the rides that were inside. The acquarium was good also inside the mall. They had fun restaurants

Great hotel for the price

The quality of this hotel is great for the value. There is quick access to the Mall of America on a less busy route than Interstate, but if you don't want to drive, they also have free shuttle service. It's also close the the airport and two major Interstates. There is great dinning choices in the area and the free breakfast has many items to choose from.

nonsmoking room??

I had booked a king online because that is all I could get and it was suppose to have a sofa sleeper in it. I then called on Friday to see if I could get two queens instead of King and "Kim" said that would be no problem. Upon check in I was asked if I needed two beds and said yes and had been told I could get two queen by their employee. The attendant apologized and said only the king was available and there was no sofa sleeper but would give us a rollaway which normally cost $20.00 but would not charge me. If he did not have two beds why did he ask me that?? He said they had people call in who did not have RESERVATIONS and they had to accomodate them with the queen beds and it was big mess. I said you gave a room to people who did NOT have reservations instead of taking care of your customers who had reserved a room already???? He kind of back tracked, but I thought this was really inconsiderate to explain it like that!! Also, the room was suppose to be NO smoking but it smelled alot like smoke which I did not appreciate as I have allegeries to smoke.

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.
