Highly recommend for families - clean, quiet, great staff.

Excellent. Front desk persons were courteous and helpful in every way.

I was very pleased with my overnight stay, It was very comfortable, clean, quiet, convenient and well worth the cost. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

Family-friendly and well kept hotel. We stayed for an event in town and enjoyed both the staff and the breakfast.

Convenient family hotel with nice amenities. There's a bar/restaurant attached (an internal door connects the two) but they won't let you bring a drink up to your room, so that was a bummer. Otherwise no complaints.

We stay at this hotel when we visit family in Apple Valley. It's very convenient to shopping in Apple Valley and it's 10-15 minutes to the Mall of America and the train into downtown Mpls, if either are on your agenda. We love that there's a separate bedroom, so we can put our wee one to bed and still be able to watch TV. Nice pool, free internet, okay breakfast. Staff were very quick to come up when our child locked the bathroom door.

Friendly service, but furniture and tech a bit dated. Otherwise, comfortable stay.

Hotel is currently under construction in some areas but it does not bother at all. Good breakfast. It's got a beautiful lobby area.

The staff we encountered were wonderful and helpful in every way. We found the pool to be too small to accommodate more than 1-2 families but the breakfast and the general helpfulness of the staff made up for it.

I would have to say that its one of the nicer hotels in the area. The rest of hotels in the area are very unconvincing. I'm happy about picking it, and I'm most likely to return. Good location, and a nice restaurant/bar with it.

We only stayed one night but I think I could move there! The room layout was very nice; I loved the full kichen that was stocked with plates, utensils, a pot and pan and measuring cups (even though I didn't make anything). Wish we could have stayed longer so we could have used the room more!

We come back to the Apple Valley GrandStay for every visit to Minnesota, once or twice a year. We would even consider using the hotel for an extended stay if we were to live in MN for part of the year. I highly recommend this hotel!

My girlfriend and I chose this hotel simply by proximity to our activities for the weekend. It is newer so it is clean and upgraded. If I were to change or dislike anything it would be...the breakfast. Not the best layout for accessibility but some decent choices. Coffee good and plentiful. The least favorite thing? The couch in the suite is extremely uncomfortable to sit on while watching TV or conversing. The cushions are without sufficient padding. Other than those two I would not change anything else. Good...hot tub was the perfect temp but an abundance of chlorine was used.

Most impressed with the quietness in the room. Our room was next to a street and heard very minimal traffic noise, even when the street was busy.
