La Quinta Inn Minneapolis Airport/Bloomington

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything was until the shuttle on our way back to hotel. We stay and payed the fee to leave our car, great until it took them 45 min to get us back to the hotel .

The facility was quiet, clean, and good. Never heard anyone slamming their doors.

I love this hotel. The price is reasonable and the location is the best. The hotel is very close to the Mall of America and the international airport. I was very impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of my room. The hotel is not luxurious but it has the basic stuff a casual traveler needs.

We use this often for airport shuttle. Excellent service, on time, fast, efficient and friendly!

Pics on website did not match this hotel. No shampoo, body lotion unless asked for. Stayed for 3 nights and only towels were exchanged and trash emptied. Rug was filthy. Stains throughout room; needs updating desperately. No room to sit and wait outside for shuttle bus; lobby was extremely small with old and soiled limited seating. Breakfast area lacked trays to take food to rooms. Computers and keys didn't always work. Only good thing was the desk staff- friendly and nice.

I stayed there two days in a main floor room at the beginning of my six day trip and the room was OK at best. I stayed one day in a second floor room on the last day of my trip and the room was a notch above in quality. Not sure why the difference.

Pictures of hotel are very descieving on the ad and web site. Would not recommend this hotel. The hotel allowed illegal activity to take place.

Suffered an injury before arriving quite late. The staff went way beyond the call of duty in the care they provided.

We stayed overnight between connecting flights. Our room was clean and fresh, the bed was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They offered to carry our luggage up the stairs to the second floor. We've stayed here several times, and we will continue to do so. We enjoy their breakfast, which has several options, including some protein. The only negative was that we had requested a first floor room when we booked online with Orbitz.com, but we didn't get that.

They've "kinked" the hose on updating this facility - smells musty; corners, molding, carpets, tubs are worn. Upon arrival my key cards would not open the door on my first room assignment. The room I did get had water seep onto the floor the next morning from an adjoining room, by night when I returned it smelled foul. I was assigned another room, but it had not yet been serviced. The fourth room was OK but didn't have a refrigerator as claimed, so my food was stored in the commercial coolers down stairs until one could be brought to the room the next day. Breakfasts were minimal, one juice,waffles, cereal and SOS (that needed help - don't think anyone took that leap). No real butter, no milk for coffee. The staff were always helpful but lacked the skills of hospitality professionals. All in all the facility feels "sad".

Close to airport and Mall of America. We had a double bed when we should have had a Queen.

Old building and room. One hangar in closet. Strange looking guests. Laughable breakfast.

No elevators, horrible parking. The carpet and bathrooms are old and worn out, the whole is place is dark and dismal.

Rooms and staff we good, breakfast was not so good. Used to eggs and some sort of meat. Biscuits and gravel not so good.

As Stated this was not a vacation, we were there for a medical procedure for my wife. The staff especially the shuttle drivers were very helpful. The hotel left a lot to be desired.

More than adequate. Clean friendly and efficient

Noisy hallway and breakfast not worth it. Was adequate but would not stay there again .

I was apprehensive about staying at this hotel. With the Ryder Cup it was hard to find a hotel at last minute. But I was impressed with this La Quinta, the rooms were very nice and the location was great. I had booked a king bed, but staff was able to give me two double beds. Very pleased with this hotel.

Stayed here one evening as I had a formal event to attend at University of Minnesota and all hotels were booked solid due to the Ryder Cup. It's okay; for the price I paid ($170.00 a night for two people), it was NOT worth it. Continental breakfast had the typical items, the hotel staff had a hard time keeping it stocked. Parking was an issue as the hotel being sold out, also evidently shares spaces with the adjacent Culvers. There's no elevator, so guests with disability issues should specify first floor. We had a king room and it was clean, shower worked well, had coffee maker, refrigerator & microwave. I was not pleased that LaQuinta refused to honor my AAA card, and include my LaQuinta rewards on my reservation. I am assuming that when the Super Bowl comes to Minneapolis in 2018 all these hotels will price gouge customers and not give you a thing extra for doubling the rate.

hotel in general needs a complete redo carpets were stained and torn in places, the mattresses were terrible and need replacing ASAP. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times and the maids kept everything clean in spite of everything being old.

I'm so sorry that you had such a long wait on your return. I know how frustrating it is after a long flight to have to wait for a shuttle. I will certainly take this to our staff to avoid this from happening in the future. Dave Kamm - GM
