Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happyguest02 Great Stay
We chose this property because it was one of 2 hotels in the area that had rooms reserved in wedding blocks for the wedding we were attending. The bride and groom had also arranged shuttle service through the hotel to the reception area and back.
The room rates were very reasonable, the rooms are clean and fresh! Our room and bathroom were quite spacious. Our room overlooked a nice patio, where we enjoyed our coffee with other wedding guests the next morning! The staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful.
Although we didn't utilize the pool or take advantage of the continental breakfast, the areas looked clean and inviting and many other hotel guests were enjoying the areas!
The area is filled with a variety of interesting restaurants and shopping. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

I will love to stay at this place again when ever possible during next year, this hotel staff is very nice including the room and services, i will only suggest management of the hotel to upgrade the microwave/and the refrigerator in the rooms and they are the best hotel with the best people i have seen in the town. Thanks

The purpose of our visit was to watch Twins baseball. The free shuttle service was excellent and made the trip to and from Target Field easy. The staff made every effort to make our stay a wonderful experience. We appreciated the fresh fruit being available 24 hours a day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tychef stay was okay, bed was comfortable
we recently stayed at this property for two nights. When we checked in the system was down and was down the whole time which led to a higher charge on our credit card then was guaranteed. still waiting for the correct charge or will dispute.
Breakfast area was clean but too small and the wait for the food was excessive. women in area kept blaming everything and how busy they were and then would bark at people to get out of her way. think there would be adequate service for the size of the hotel, not even close. need many more microwaves to keep up with demand, with how inexpensive they are you would think that would be better for customer service. One man waited for pancakes for over an hour only for them to put an out of order sign on the machine.
Room was comfortable but for the price we paid I expected a lot more. our son moved there recently and we are looking for a hotel to frequent on our visits. this one would have a long way to go. price would definitely have to be more competitive for the amenities.

A mix-up occurred regarding rooms. The staff was very helpful and accommodating and solved the problem with a gracious attitude. I wish all hotel staff across the country were as well trained and courteous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pwally Nice place to stay in area
We were in town to visit the UMN campus and this was a great place to stay. They have special rates for UMN which lowered the cost a bit. Conveniently located in an area with many restaurants, movie theatre, etc., and not too far from the campus. Location was clean and safe. Room was immaculate. The staff was responsive and very good. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here.

No power for 2 days, no phones, no air conditioning, no hot water, no fire protection system, virtually no breakfast yet we were charged the full days rate. The windows were locked and you could get no air circulation.
Customer concern seemed to be missing.

We were visiting family and stop by here as we arrived late and do not want to bother them late night. Nice property but very hard to get to from interstate. Looks pretty old hotel furniture all bit up but beds are comfortable. Breakfast bar small but plenty of option to eat. overall good hotel for stay !!

A great property - have stayed here on several occasions. Love their vast choice of breakfast items, and who can't appreciate the novelty of a PANCAKE MACHINE!!
My olnly pet peeve: styrofoam. Styro, styro and more styro. All it would take is a corporate effort to become more sustainable to eliminate thiis horrific waste, and likely save money in the process! Hoping for that change to occur by my next visit!!

The staff were excellent. My room, although a suite, was loud. There was a constant banging and the toilet kept running off and on. I had to shut the door so that I could sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GBrenson1 Good but far from the best
As an IHG Ambassador member, I use Intercontinental and Holiday properties in all my travels. This was definitely not the best Holiday Inn I have stayed in but was acceptable and a good value for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosco73 Nice place for a rest
This hotel was a little bit difficult to find. Fortunately if you miss the turn there is another without a long drive.
Checked in later than I was planning. Everything was ready for me when I got there. I was upgraded to a suite and I was very happy with it. The elevator was not working so I had to carry all my gear up to the second floor. I assume the elevator broke just before I got there as the front desk didn't warn me about it.
I stayed in a two room king suite and it was well equiped with a microwave and a refridgerator which actually worked for a change. There was a counter and sink for some light cooking and a kitchen table to eat at.
TV's in both the bedroom and sitting room were working properly and programmed so you know which channel you are on.
I only have two complaints about my room. There is a wall heater which keeps the bedroom excessively hot and the sitting room was cold. With a two bedroom suite I would expect to see a bit better in the way of temp control. The second complaint was a lack of curtains. The windows were covered by the typical decorative shear curtains but no darkening shades were installed. This did effect my sleeping but I am an early riser anyway.
On the up side they have a novelty pull tab game when you check in and they can award you extra priority club points based on your winning pull tab. I won 500 extra points.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terry95 Wonderful people and spacious rooms at a great price
As I always stay at this Holdiay Inn Express when I'm in the area, I find myself needing to check out other hotel propertie - just to make sure I wouldn't be happier somewhere else. I still return every time to the this hotel. Prices are great, rooms are spacious and practically appointed, breakfast is great, and the appetizers served in the early evening are the a very nice touch.
My kids love the pool, especially in the winter!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve59 Staff is fantastic, very quiet and comfortable bed
The staff at this Holiday Inn is exceptional. We stay at a lot of hotels, and most of them are Holiday Inns. The one in Golden Valley really does shine above the rest, mostly because of the staff. It is very obvious that they are trained very well. We stay at this location very often and will continue to do so in future. We were there over Christmas and they even had complimentary wrapping paper. I bought the staff a box of Chocolates. It should have been more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carrieberry21 Nice place to stay
The staff was really helpful. Room was very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was more than I expected. I have never had a breakfast like that for such a low price! The staff was understanding about my sons anxiety around people and gave us a to-go box so I could get him something to eat in the car. The only problem I has was that the walls were really thin. I woke up at 2am to my neighbors talking. I could not understand what they were saying but it was loud enough to wake me up. did not wake my son or husband up though. I turned on the heat and it drowned out their voices.
