Recent guest reviews

Beautiful hotel, comfortable beds, would definitely stay there again.

Shuttle great! MSP is confusing but Hotel guided me to pickup at midnight

Have stayed at most hotels nearby over the years. None of them would be so unhelpful to a business traveler who needs a late checkout. Arrived after midnight and requested a late checkout. 12 noon was the latest they would give me even thiugh I know holiday inn next door would gladly give me 1 or 2pm. Will not stay here again

This was a last minute stay. The entrance is really nice, but the rooms are dated. Breakfast was horrible. There was never enough food for the customers.

Best value for me, in the area I need to be in when traveling to Minnesota. Our office is in Eagan so this is in a great location for me, near good restaurants and shopping for anything you'd need.

We enjoy staying in this hotel because it is so very clean and quiet, it has a very pleasant decor throughout, it provides breakfast, and it is easy to locate. This particular time we got a room that continued to heat, no matter what we did to cool the room. (It's December in Minnesota, so that is generally a good thing...) We turned the heat as low as we could and opened the window, hoping that it would cool down by the time re returned from a concert. However, this was not the case. At that time, we requested a room change and were immediately given a different room right across the hall. This room was very satisfactory, and we were able to control the heat as we liked.

My family and I stayed here overnight on a weekend and were quite happy with our stay. It was less than 15 minutes from the Mall of America and pretty easy to access. Staff was friendly and the continental breakfast was nice and plentiful.

Nice hotel room. Great location. Good breakfast. Has been our second stay at this location. Would definitely stay another time.

The room was clean and pretty decent but there was a very funky smell. Our friends stayed there and their room was fine but ours was pretty stinky. Other than that it was fine.

Always very nice with great service. I have stayed here many times and always recommend.

The hotel met my expectation. Price was reason. Beds are comfortable, especially after a long day driving to many places in St Paul, MN for Mother's Day. Had a great stay at Best Western Plus.

Second day being there someone stole my money and staff did nothing about it. They said they trust their staff

Nice interior and decent breakfast. Rooms were clean, kids loved the fountain and decor. Staff was friendly!

Nice to have mall shuttle. Quality stay.clean and tidy.

Very nice, clean hotel. I did the park, sleep and fly which included hotel shuttle to the airport on departure and return flight. Walking distance to a bar/restaurant....food was very good.

Very nice and clean bedrooms. Walking distance to restaurant and bar. Like the park, sleep and fly package.

When I walked in the room, I couldn't believe in my eyes how dirty the carpet was, you can even see the soil in the carpet, that's mean they didn't vacumm nor shampoo the carpet, I even have to wear my socks when I walk in the room and in the end, my white socks turn black because of that, the carpet smell very bad, too. The bed sheet was very rough on my skin and doesn't look like it was clean carefully, the TV signal was bad and the air conditioner made a lot of noise at night. I talked to the receptionist and all she could say was: I would let the manager aware of this, yeah right, after I had to pay nearly $120.00 a night, I had a dirty room to stay and just a word from them that they would let the manager knows. Anyway, it was a big disappointment.

I only spent one night here, but it was a positive experience.

Ordinary. If you've stayed in a Best Western then you know how this experience will go.

Great rooms, Great location, Great breakfast easy for all, handicap accessible, great family gathering areas

I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations. We will circle back with our folks on the reasons why we were unable to accommodate a late check out. Thanks for staying with us. We are smack dab in the middle of a great area. We will do better next time you visit.
