Guest reviews

  • 7.0

    The breakfast buffet was good.

    The room was very noisy due to doors slamming and traffic as it was near an exit which smokers frequented.

  • 9.2

    Great free breakfast. Pool area was great- they even had a "baby pool" that was only 1.5ft deep (and warm!) I liked that it didn't resemble a typical hotel.

    More onsite parking. We parked in a ramp across the street (still free, but farther to walk with a toddler!) Our AC didn't really kick in and it stayed super warm all night which made it difficult to sleep comfortable for me (I'm 8.5 months pregnant) and my husband.

  • 7.0

    Hotel was very quiet. The lady who was working in the breakfast area was very friendly and helpful.

  • 9.2

    Very cool place lots of history, Neat how they build all the rooms in Old Train Depo

    little kids in hot tub not beening able to relax in it.

  • 4.6

    HOT in the rooms...after asking twice to get them cooled...no results!! Breakfast...some out of order...slow process...even with coffee.

  • 8.8

    Staff went over and above to assist us. The pool was great. There was a wedding party there, yet it was very quiet.

    The policy about cancellations. We would have to pay extra to get a refund

  • 7.8

    Neat old building, slept great, good coffee. Very close to the Fair Grounds.

    The room was showing a little wear and tear. There was some dust stuck to the ceiling and spider webs behind the night stand. We had to move it to find a plug in which the room was short.

  • 7.8

    Quiet room. comfortable. The location was good for me, but might be out of the way for others. It is in a business park between Minneapolis and St. Paul.

  • 7.4

    Nice location, decent price. Some construction delays on Snelling Ave., but overall good hotel for our stay.

  • 10.0

    Gay bartender bragging about two day old marriage

  • 6.2

    We traveled to the area for the "Back to the 50's" car show. The hotel was a good location for going to the fair grounds where the show was held. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.

    The complimentary breakfast left a lot to be desired. No variety, the same items 3 days in a row. Tried the milk the first day. It was bad so didn't try it again. Ran out of coffee. Staff, other than front desk, were not very friendly.

  • 5.8

    Breakfast was good.

    Sink was stopped up, but staff only gave me a plunger instead of getting a maintenance man to fix it. Plunger didn't clear it. Room was somewhat dirty. Said I'd get a 20% discount due to the sink, but still haven't seen it on my credit card. Difficult to navigate with cart to the room. some hallways have steps, so can't take the cart.

  • 4.2

    Not sure I need to expand beyond heading.

    Dirty room. Staff was nice

  • 7.8

    Friendly staff, nice room. Did not stay long enough to check out most of the amenities, but breakfast was decent (pretty standard motel breakfast but had some hot items and all was good). Had a nice rest and good shower, all I was looking for this trip!

    The bar closes at 9 pm; we got there past 10.

  • 7.4

    Never gave us a copy of our bill, please send it.
