Liked the room and the breakfast. Location wasn’t great but. Over all it was great.

Walking to JJ’s was a big plus! Food there was great

Friendly and good location. Quiet. good breakfast.

Perfect! Could not be better. One problem though. I had lights from the parking lot outside coming into my room directly, through the shades. I could not sleep properly, because it was just so bright. I recommend putting curtains to cover the shades, but it may cost too much to be worth it.

The front office people were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the lady who ran the breakfast was very pleasant and kind.

We enjoyed our stay. Everyone was very accommodating. The room was clean and the breakfast was awesome.

The front desk staff checked me in quickly and efficiently. Room was clean and everything was easy to find and use.

First of all, My Wife and I agree, The mattress was the most comfortable we have ever slept on. The staff were friendly and helpful, something I sadly have come to no longer expect at any but the highest end hotels. (In fact the staff was just as attentive as they were at the Double Tree). The amenities were plentiful, and the Breakfast was Top notch (especially for a free breakfast), though it could have been attended a bit better. They ran out of coffee and a few other items that they did refill, but it took a bit before they noticed. I love the fact that they have and adult swim time in the evening. The bottom line we enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express more than the much more expensive and higher rated Double Tree we were at the next night. I have already booked another stay at The Holiday Inn Express in Golden Valley, and it will not be my last.

I thought that the staff was very friendly, good location clean.

We with out two little ones had a nice stay at this hotel. Very clean and spacious, which I didnt expect at all basing on my experience with the same hotel in Atlanta. This facility has definitely changed ny opinion about Holiday Inn express. Breakfast has a lot of choices and we all could chosen different items. Kids have really enjoyed playing in the pool, which was also spacious and clean. I will definitely consider staying here whenever I go back to Minneapolis in future.

Close to downtown and convenient parking. Was surprised that there was a continental breakfast, wasn't expecting it. Good service and friendly staff.

Good value and location for our event. Staff helpful for finding evening dinner options. Very comfy bed !

Clean, Friendly, Easy to get to, Great Breakfast, Free Internet, Daily Newspapers. Highly recommended. We will certainly be staying there again.

Hotel was OK. Breakfast was not that great - everything should have been better for the price.

Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel had free parking, free wireless internet access and hot breakfast. Located close enough to major points of interest. Would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites when traveling to the Twin Cities for testing purposes. We chose this location because of the location and close proximity to the downtown area. We had an enjoyable stay. The front deks hotel staff was friendly and welcoming at check-in. There was fresh coffee and cold water available in the lobby area at the time of check-in. We were able to get around the area with no problem and the hotel was fairly easy to find. We liked that the hotel was in a quiet area. A few things we weren't really impressed with was the continental breakfast and the housekeeping staff. The breakfast was just mediocre. The set-up of it was not ideal and the breakfast choices weren't impressive. Also the morning of check-out we had several knocks on the door from housekeeping lady wondering if our room could be cleaned. This was definitely a turn-off to us as check-out time was listed as noon and at that time we had 3+ hours till check-out. We felt that was kind of disrespectful. Overall, Holiday Inn Express and Suites is always a safe choice for a hotel. I would definitely consider staying here again if the need presented itself. We really liked the close proximity to downtown, the quiet atmosphere, and the friendliness of the front desk staff.

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The continental breakfast wasn't great. I'm not a big fan of instant eggs. The central location of the hotel made it a good jump off point to downtown Minneapolis and surrounding area.

Great location without the chaos of the city. Short distance from sporting venues. My only complaint is that they charge more for a king bed with a sofa bed than they do for a room with two queen beds.

The room was comfortable and served its purpose. Was an evening out for my husband and I. Booked King room but they only had double. The staff indicated my reservation only allowed King if available and of course none were. Not sure if this is through booking agent but I would have paid the $20.00 more to get the room I wanted. We also picked location because it was 1/2 mile from event we were attending, it advertised a shuttle to local places and we knew we wanted to drink. I have stayed at other places with shuttles and new you had to wait or ride with other people but I guess here you can pay to book a group so it wasn't an option for us. I would recommend calling ahed or put your name down when you book the room.

The hotel was perfect, but very difficault ti fine. The google map and mapquest shows hotel on different location as the hotel located. The address is incorrect, the hotel is on the other side of 394. The room clean and nice, staff is ok, except breakfest area people. They never smile, this is strange.
