Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HawkeyeFan Great value!
We had a great experience staying at this properly. Arrived on a Saturday and was efficiently checked in and front desk staff was the best I've ever encounered. Used the shuttle service on Sunday to the Mall of America to catch the light rail to the Vikings game--- great service! I would definitely stay at this property again and would highly recommend it to others.

Or weekend started out rough on Friday night when after swimming in the pool we discovered there wasn't hot water for our showers. After taking luke-warm showers we discovered there were only 3 towels for the 4 of us staying in the room. After expressing our concerns with the front desk we were told one of the hot water heaters had failed. They made this up to us by giving us a free night during our two night stay, which we thought was very generous. The next morning we were greeted and helped at breakfast by Dennis who is truly an asset for Holiday Inn. The heated pool was the warmest pool we've been in at a hotel. I, my wife and our two daughters will definitely be returning for another mini vacation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sully55 Wonderful experience
I have stayed at multiple IHG hotels throughout the U.S. This hotel is top notch. Right from the start, we were greated by the front desk staff upon walking in the door. The staff was great. Can not say enough good things about the entire experience. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 AWESOME AND CONVIENT
I booked here because we were coming in from Illinois to go to mall of America. GM Joel was very friendly helpful and awesome helping me pick my package so I can get my wristbands for the Nick Universe. This is a great place. They had a shuttle to and from the mall so we didnt have to lug around jackets, keys ect. Front desk staff all very friendly and helpful. Room very clean beds VERY VERY COMFY! Slept GREAT! Thank you for the great experience and you guys are doing a SUPERIOR job. Will deffinatly be staying there again! GREAT JOB!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by akalls we will be back.........
This was about the fifth time we have stayed here, and as usual we are eminently satisfied. The location is good, and easy to access from many directions, it is a short haul to the Minneapolis VA Medical Center, and has some nice dining in close proximity. The staff is always courteous and helpful and the hotel and grounds are clean and orderly.
I don't sleep well at home so the three stars for "Sleep Quality" is NOT a dig on the hotel, although a wedding party came in about midnight and were partying outside our door. I called the front desk and the situation was remedied.
The breakfast could have a bit more variety, but all in all is okay.
we will be back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmandell Review of our four day stay
The friendly desk staff and breakfasts alone are worth choosing this hotel... The rooms were clean and comfortable. Rooms on the second floor would be quieter - first floor ceiling soundproofing is poor. we could hear every footsteps above us.
Only sour note was the poor digital key system. The room keys constantly malfunctioned, but the staff cannot be blamed for this; they patiently reprogrammed the key and cleaned the locks without much success.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nagadanow Great hotel, amazing customer service
I stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn for a wedding. The rooms were nice and clean, nothing out of the ordinary. The staff went above and beyond for us. Very friendly and patient with us. Angie and Max were two of our favorites, they ensured the bride and groom had an extra special stay and even put balloons and a card in the room the day of the wedding. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EdwardW Outstanding Service from the Helpful & Friendly Staff
The staff at this hotel was even better than we have come to expect from any IHG hotel. Everyone was friendly and several people were extra helpful.
Max was at the front desk when we checked in. He asked us if we had a preference for room location. We requested an extra luggage rack so both of our kids could have one. (They both thinkthe rack is extra special). He had to search between helping other guests, but he let us know that he was still searching.
Pam was maintaining the breakfast area on Friday. She was friendly to everyone and she kept all of the food trays full. When my wife thanked her for being so cheerful and pleasant, Pam reacted as though we were doing her a favor.
Leon was maintaining the breakfast area on Sunday. There was a nonstop crowd for about an hour. He also kept The tray well stocked and he was cheerful the whole time.
I named three people because they stood out in this group, but every one of the staff who we met was friendly. The entire group would stand out if compared to the staffs at other hotels.
We had a great experience at this Holiday Inn Express. It was even better than usual, and we have had only good experiences at IHG hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisA40 OK, but not great
The pillows were small and flat. The whirlpool area in my room looked old and needed to be remodeled. The TV was not good. I could not get the movie channels to work at all. I thought I bought the mall of America package that came with a gift card for the mall but nobody knew anything about this when I checked in and they never offered to rectify the problem. I will think about ever doing that again.

Great personality. Would rate higher if the food was better and they had an elevator to upper areas. Location is great if you are on the south side of the "Twin Cities".

The staff was very friendly and the Hotel halls and lobby area were nice. The breakfast was good with a nice selection. However, our room had a strong musty smell. It was very humid and warm in the room and the airconditioner had a hard time keeping up, the carpet seemed damp. The work out room was also very hot. It was in the upper 80s when we were there.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by immies Feedback and Complaint
I have write an immediate review after checking out from the hotel but i guess my review was not posted because of some guidelines which i have not followed according to term and condition but i am hopeful that my review will be posted this time and the reviewer will accept the positive feedback and complaint from me.
Poor Customer service at time of checked in
(Nothing extra was offered at the time of checked in being a Platinum member, i deserve upgrades when available and this hotel was not totally)
Room location was bad, (Most of the hotel staff utilize area which is just in front of my room window for smoking and breaks, so no privacy and good impact)
Room does not have basic amenities available in the room like, fridge and microwave (I was charged for requesting a fridge in the room,
I requested a baby crib when reserved my room didn't get one.
Room was in bad condition, i have to slap the door to shut it beds were not comfortable at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Charles1701 Time to do some remodeling
What can I say... I stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels a lot because you KNOW what's there and you don't get any suprises... or SO I thought..
1) The room smelled musty and damp. We had to run the A/C at a lower level to help drive out some of the smell/dampness and we left the bath fan on ALL the time.
2) the pool was down one of the three nights we stayed.
3) The beds were past their prime to say the least. Not good.
4) The work out room was cramped and the TV remote was broken so all you got was the PBS channel.
I know it was close to the airport and the mall of America but it was simply run down... It needs a re-vamp..
