EXCELLENT AIRPORT SERVICE

It was just an overnight to leave for early flight. They picked us up and dropped us off and even kept our car for the week. A great deal.

Some good; some bad

The room and bathroom were a good size for our family and was clean in all areas. However, at check-in we were first given a room with one King bed even though our reservation stated four (4) people. The location is fantastic, right at the airport and within fifteen (15) minutes to center city. The indoor pool is a good size; the first night we went down and it was comfortably warm and clean; there were not enough towels. The second night we went down and the water was cold and cloudy (it had evidently not been cleaned); there still were not enough towels. The food at the one restaurant was excellent but expensive. We requested additional blankets; we eventually had to go down to the front desk to get them ourselves.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

There are no attractions within walking distance; therefore, driving is a must especially if traveling with children. The only entertainment for children in the hotel is the pool.

Internet service is not free

The hotel is a little old but appears to be well maintained. The room was ready early and it was clean and neat. My only real issue was not having Internet service because I don't believe in this day and time that anyone staying in your hotel should have to pay for Internet service. Buffet breakfast was a little pricey given it's limited offerings but it was okay. Staff was friendly.

Flexible, but over-priced

The room was clean and neat, nothing extra-ordinary. The price was very high for an average room.

It was ok

We didn't get a fridge at all when they promised us a fridge as soon as one was available and we were there for a week and a half. Then they charged a 200 dollar deposit but said nothing to me about it so I was upset when I had that charge on my account. You had a small T.V. and most small hotels in minnesota have flat screens. They were rude to my son when he accidently knocked over a piece of decor which is 4 years old. And the food in the resturant was terrible!!!

Avoid the Rooms Next to the Atrium

The rooms next to the atrium are above a pool, which is open from 7 am to 10 pm. If there are kids in the pool, their screams echo throughout the atrium and penetrate all of the rooms. The TV was an older tube model, and the high speed internet requires that you pay an extra fee. All things considered, very disappointing for a facility that is quite nice in other respects.
