Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack1946 Excellent value
I like a hotel that has a bar and restaurant attached (or within walking distance.) The building shows its years of service, but everything I needed worked and the room was clean - and the beer was cool. Staff was very friendly. The price was right! I will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy1947 Great place for a convention
Staff was wonderful and the entire hotel made us feel like home.
There isn't another hotel in the Mpls-St Paul area as good as the people at the front desk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eliason4 Front desk staff exceptional! Megan R.
Room were very comfortable and updated. Much better than the Holiday Inn we stay at in Chicago. They should visit your hotel! Megan R was by far the best front desk associate I have worked with! Please take good care of her!!! You don't find people that do a great job and care about your customers like she does.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zach1454 Sticky housekeeping hands
My wife and I recently checked out of this location early for many reasons. First off I want to say the staff at the front desk was amazing anything I brought to them they fixed right away. First I got there and the heater in the room was not working. They fixed that. Then the tv remote broke and they replaced it. Then the door stuck locking us into the room. The ONLY problem I have with this hotel and the reason I probably wont be returning is because housekeeping took items from the room. First night there the housekeeper ended up with my wives flip flops. Then after I left I found out that our marriage license was not with us. I called up and they said I left them in the room when I checked it three times. I didnt forget it they found it with housekeeping. They said they would mail it to me but they charged it to my credit card. Its not my problem they stole it from me and I dont think I should have to pay for it to be sent back to me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kb55 Very noisy room near pool
The room was at the end of the hall, overlooking the pool. For some reason the noise from the pool area was horrible. We had to turn the room fan on high for white noise to sleep. Otherwise a great stay and nice hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dave52302 Great stay and conference room!
From the time I arrived to the time I left, every experience was a five star. I was in town for a conference (that was held at this hotel) so the first impression was important. I was not disappointed. I was greeted with a smile as I checked in, given clear directions to my room, and sent on my way in a short amount of time. My room was clean, quiet and fresh---just the way I like it. The towels were soft and full; the shampoo and soap were plentiful; and the bed was very comfortable.
I ate my evening meal at the "in house" restaurant. Without exaggeration, I was served some of the best Lasagna that I have ever eaten. The sauce was unique and the portion size was more than enough.
On the day of the conference, we were served a noon meal catered by the hotel. Most of the time these meals are, at best, average. However, this was an exception. There were several hot entrees to choose from that were very good. The salad was fresh, the iced tea was brewed just right, and the cookies were soft and chewy.
In summary, I recommend this hotel to both the traveler and the conference attendee. It met all and exceeded most of my expectations!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jared11 Great location with at a good price
Although it was a nice stay the hotel is in need of renovations expecially in the bathrooms. Tile on floors is old along with the showers. Also every time I have stayed here the pool is extremely cold.

We stayed on a Saturday night and there happened to be a wedding in the conference center. We were across the way and could hear the music all night long making it extremely difficult to fall asleep. Also, the pool area was very small and we found that the hot tub water was dirty. The staff there was helpful.

Nice and clean, no complaints. Gym was larger than many, 3 or 4 machines. Big pool w/ hot tub. Restaraunt attached was pretty good, nice bar area. Only bad side is no complementary breakfast, but overall , enjoyable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smokepole Hotel Appearance
Hotel has great food and the beds were comfortable. It is quite obvious however that the hotel is a little long in the tooth and in need of some renovation. Carpet appeared worn and the room I stayed in showed signs of wear and torn from years of use.
Parking lot was quite congested with shuttle vehicles parked at main entrance making it somewhat difficult to enter and exit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Revsaz Outstanding comfort and service
Recently in town for meetings. My business partner and I had to come in a day early due to a snow storm. The front desk was very accommodating and worked with us to adjust our reservation. During the night, my business partner came down with the flu and needed to stay in bed all day. Again, the personnel at the front desk were extremely accommodating, understanding the situation, and even willing to bring up any items that he needed to weather the day while I was in meetings. We were able to delay our departure a day so that my business partner was healthy enough to travel. Once again, the front desk helped adjust our reservation and was extremely helpful.. The staff in the Green Mill attached also did a fantastic job accommodating our group late into the evening. Excellent stay, great staff, highly recommend!

They only run the shuttle on the hour so when we arrived we were told that we couldnt get on the shuttle we needed for our internaional flight. They arranged a cab but it cost us 30.00 to get to the airport.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike54 Uncomfortable beds and dated rooms
The motel is clean, but needs updating. The beds are getting old, and are quite soft(uncomfortable). The carpet and wallpaper are dated, and in need of replacement. The staff did a very good job checking me in and out, and corridinating shuttle transfers.

This location offers a friendly staff, nice open indoor pool area, and is very quiet while still being just off of the interstate. The only thing I didn't like was that the hotel offered a resteraunt as apposed to complimentary breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Schwebebahn1025 Great value for great service.
This has been the fifth time we have stayed here, and we have never had service that was less than excellent. The reservation desk is very helpful and courteous. They offer an "educator" discount, and that is a big draw for me!
I have to scrounge to find a negative aspect, so if I had to be nitpicky about something, I would have to say that the interior rooms really, really really smell like the pool. I know, duh, they face the pool. But even with windows shut and all, it is a bit overwhelming to smell it during the entire stay.
Very accommodating. Great location. Helpful staff. Would recommend. Join the priority club!

The staff here are ery friendly and make the stay. The Green Mill is a nice place to eat but is not open on major holidays. I will say that I had a room on the 3rd floor near the pool, and I would not recommend these rooms. There is a strong odor of chlorine and you can hear everything going on in the pool area.

We were in room 200 and it was very drafty. It would be hot on one side of the room and a cold draft on the other. The pool area was also very cold.

My granddaughter and I stayed a snowy weekend for shopping at Mall of America. The Holiday Inn staff were friendly, courteous, and more than accommodating. Our experience was outstanding. The shuttle drivers are to be commended for driving us (and other patrons) to and from our destinations in the snow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wirks4me Always stay here when flying out
After reading some of the other reviews, I disagree with the comments about how long it takes to the airport...it's only 9 miles away, depending on the time of day and traffic, it might take 10 minutes or it might take 25 minutes...plan for it!
If I want a "free" breakfast, I stay at an H.I. Express, otherwise I like the option of having a full restaurant so I can enjoy an adult beverage with my supper or a sit down breakfast before I leave.
The best part about this hotel, apart from being easy access to highway I-35, are the employees. They are wonderful from start to finish. The front desk personnel are very courteous, the restaurant staff is great and the rest of the folks take pride in the service they provide, including the shuttle drivers, who help with your baggage and insuring their passengers are safe and sound.
I highly recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone looking for a hotel close to the Mall of America, or want a "stay, park and fly" option when heading to the airport.
I will stay there next time, and every time thereafter...Oh, one more thing...become a Priority Club Member!
