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.

inconsistent water temp

Everything was fine about the motel, except the shower. The water temperature fluctuated from hot to cold for no apparent reason.

Bears/viking game

Two of my friends and I drove overnight to Minnesota for a weekend trip and ended arriving around 6am at the hotel. The girl at the counter checked for our room and let us check in at 6am even though our reservations was for 3pm that day and she didn't even charge us extra for coming early. Definitely coming back here =)

What can you expect?

A friend of mine and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Dakota Ridge for a girl's weekend at MOA. Of course the price was just right, however, when we arrived I had wished I paid the extra $50 or so a night for a little bit nicer room. The room just felt grungy. The bed sheets and bed skirts had stains, the shower had hair stuck on the curtain, the bathroom faucets had black sludge around the edges. However, the staff were very friendly and breakfast was wonderful. For the money it's a decent stay, but what can you really expect when you only pay $60 or so a night?

Nice and clean

Serves a nice light breakfast but would recommend getting there before 9am because food tends to run out fast in the last hour. Several computers in the lobby to access internet

Good price & it is definitely worth it!

It was a long weekend get away for a shopping spree, and the hotel is definitely nice and clean. Can't ask for anything more for the price we paid, and will definitely return to stay there again in the near future!

Long Weekend in the Twin Cities

The staff was friendly and the room was extremely quiet, even though there was a storm and the place was full. I enjoyed the breakfast - waffles make me happy :)
