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.

Have stayed at this location 30 + times in last two years.
Very confortable beds, Good service and the attached Green Mill has great food. I dont give anyone a 5 but this is as good as I have stayed in for the cost.

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.

I have been staying at this property for the past few years. The front desk staff is the best! I like what has been done with remodeling. I travel over 125 nights a year, this is my favorite Holiday Inn to stay at.

One issue I personally dislike is the Park & Go feature.
Parking is always an issue with this option.

I WAS GREETED AND TREATED VERY WELL FROM THE FRONT DESK STAFF. AFTER CHECKING IN, I WAS WELL TAKEN CARE OF BY EVERYONE. THE MAINTENANCE STAFF THAT LOOKED OUT AND HELPED WITH PARKING ON A VERY COLD EVENING, THAT MADE MY STAY WORTHWHILE & THAT IS WHY I OR SOMEONE FROM MY COMPANY WILL BE BACK. GREAT RESTAURANT ASWELL, THANKS …..

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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Erik43 Holiday Inn 94th and 35W
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!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RA1369 One of the worst holiday inn experiences I have had
They surprised me with a $50.00 fee for a shuttle ride to the airport, when the website states there is a free shuttle. The shuttle driver never left her seat to even offer to carry the bags for anyone in my partly. It was much more expensive and less convenient than expected. They call this the "airport" location but it takes a 20 minutes shuttle ride to get there. As a holiday inn platinum member, I have stayed at dozens of holiday inn properties in many states and this is one of my worst experiences, ever. I will NEVER stay here again.

I generally stay at Holiday Inn for the complamentory breakfast however this Hotel did not offer such and said the breakfast was in the attached Resturant and was not on the house. In the future I will stay at other properties that have a free breakfast. The breadfast added $8-$15 onto the cost of the room.
