Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Daboys1 Good Location
We stayed here last weekend with a total of 24 in our group. The location to the mall was perfect and the shuttle service was good. We also shuttled to the mall to take the train to the Vikings/Bears Game and it was very convenient. The continental breakfast was very extensive and quite good for buffet type food.
On the down side, our room was extremely hot and maintenance was unable to fix this problem. Actually the entire 6th floor was hot. We left our window open during our entire stay in order to get some sleep without sweating all night. The beds were just OK. I am no used to very comfortable beds in hotels these days and they did not compare. The pillows were also tiny little squares that were not soft. I rarely sleep well in hotels so I was not expecting to get any good sleep on this trip either and I certainly did not.
Location and price and breakfast are still positive features of this hotel and I will try again.

Everything I want at a reasonable price, could I ask for more? In one word... Good. In more words, quick, simple, friendly, good location. Everything I expect from Holiday Inn.

I have now stayed at this property twice and had the same difficulty, the heating system needs to run continuously, but the control knob is unmarked, and not sure it make any difference. I did not sleep well either night. The last room was 336.
Hope this helps you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mrrisk One of the few I wouldn't return to.
I've stayed in Holiday Inn brands for over 20 years, mostly for business travel and sometimes for leisure.
I rarely write reviews because I normally get what I pay for, and it is a good cost/benefit ratio; but in this case, it is the first time I would say I didn't like the experience at all.
If the outside temperatura is below 50°F, then the AC unit ONLY works as a Heater... we had one of the worst nights, the room was too hot and my kids and wife were restless throughout the night.
I wasn't acknowledged as a Platinum member, until I asked if the points were added to my account, at that moment the front desk person "tossed" me a bottle of water saying "here ya'go". The hotel was quite empty, but still no upgrade was offered or even commented that wasn't available.
The front desk attendant was simply bitter and I honestly felt like if I had chosen a completely different hotel Brand.
I do hope they improve since the location is fine for the Airport and shopping. So far, I know I wouldn't stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OregonF Close to MOA
This hotel is just what you expect from the Holiday Inn Express, it clean and comfortable. What is really attractive about this property was that it is very close to the Mall of America and close to the airport. So if you are a traveler, this is a good place to go. The hotel and staff were nice but the layout and getting to the elevator was a little confusing. Overall a good stay.

We enjoyed our stay. The breadfast was more than pastries and cereal. The staff was very friendly and professional. We really appreciated the shuttles to the Mall of America. The hotel is in a nice location. The room was a little small, but other than that is was a great place to stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Second stay and will stay again
We first stayed in your hotel last December. Your staff ultimately sold us!! They were so sweet to our kiddos!! So I chose to stay with you again, this time as a Moms weekend away.
Another fantastic stay!! Courteous staff, clean rooms, our toilet was plugged when we checked in and the friendly maintenance gentleman came and fixed it promptly and was so sweet.
Will be staying with you again no matter the reason!

While this property updated somewhat the mattress was very very soft! It was uncomfortable, lumpy and made sleeping difficult. Would not return to this property for that reason alone.

Hotel was very clean, but customer service, in my opinion, was poor. As very frequent quest of Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express - I wasn't greeted by name or status. My points weren't shown and I received nothing at check in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lmf5 close to ikea!
We would stay here again. Free shuttle to Mall of America (where we also went to get on the train to go to the Vikings Game). We could see the IKEA sign from hotel window. When we checked in, we had 2 double beds rather than the king. The awesome young men at the front desk helped us get that switched, they also recommended an awesome restaurant/bar across the street at the Radisson. We went there twice in 3 days. Great staff. We got to MN on a Friday evening and left Monday a.m., and even tho we went to MOA, Ikea, and a game, we never had to get in our car once. NICE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sparklintan Good Stay
I only stayed here for one night on business, because I was going to be at one of the local colleges the next morning. I arrived late (like 10 pm) and had some trouble finding the property. I thought I put the address in correctly but it took me on the other side of main street, I called and the lady at the front desk directed me how to get there. The check in was easy and they gave me tips on how to get where I needed to go in the morning. The room was good, I slept fine. I didn't have a chance to really do anything else, because all I did was sleep, shower, and check out. The breakfast looked good, but I didn't have anything besides coffee on my way out. Overall, the location was alright -- a few blocks in the other direction seemed a bit sketchy, but in between all the other hotels it was fine. Seemed like a good location for the mall and airport travelers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snoopy96 Good breakfast & Front desk personnel?
The breakfast was very good as well as the waitresses. The front desk staff was also very helpful and friendly. The room was ok, but the stool had a tank leak and would refill every few minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jdkammu Great staff and Service
Arrived on a very early flight and was not expecting much accommodations because check in wasn't till 3pm. We were hoping for just a place to keep our bags. I called and with no hesitation a shuttle driver was out to pick us up. Johanna at the front desk was very helpful and professional in getting us checked in early, even offering that mornings breakfast that was still being served. At that moment we knew we were in a place that cared about customer service. The stay was great, the staff helped with directions and transportation advise. The only draw back to the visit was the room was a bit cool and adjusting the thermostat did not seem to make a difference. We did not call or I am positive that would have been taken care of as well. hats off to the Staff!!

The hotel was a in a good location really close to mall of America and a walmart! and it was a nice hotel and great breakfast! BUT I had requested a crib when I made the appointment, wasn't there when I arrived, then I requested it again at check in, no one came with one.Then I had to call front desk THREE times to ask if it was coming. We finally received a crib for my baby at about 10:00pm when he had been sleeping since 8:00. not impressed with the front desk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whi13 Decent
Overall the stay was pleasant free WiFi had decent speed but some connection issues on the top floor but from the first was great. Room was clean and looked nice. The pool was great to relax in. I only had to issues first my heater wasn't working correctly but a call to the front desk and a man came opened the case fixed it and left in less than 5 minutes so that was fine. The other issue was the mattress. I was in a queen suite but I am fairly certain it was a full. I didn't have a tape measure to confirm. The mattress was also nice and comfortable on one side while the other was broken providing little if any support... The couch was comfy at least.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jean152 Very nice room and very friendly staff.
Booked a handicap-accessible room, but the 2 queen beds made it difficult to move around the room. The staff told us that this room will be redone soon to address this issue. We were moved to a king-bed suite for the same price. Though the tub was not truly handicap accessible, it did have grab bars and my husband was able to use it with little trouble.
Love that the rooms have micro and fridge as I am on special food program and did not have to keep my food on ice.
Great location close to Ikea and Mall of America with friendly shuttle service to MOL and light-rail.

This is the second time staying at this location and the service was not as expected. This hotel is better suited (as you will see if you stay there) for cliental looking to be close to Mall of America. The internet service was extremely slow and unavailable. Trying to use the business center was of no help, as there were kids playing on the computers during my stay.
