We were very happy with our 3 day stay at this facility. The breakfast choices were wonderful -- eggs w/meat choice, biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, plus all the other usuals at a cold buffet. All parts of the hotel were clean and attractive, the staff friendly, there was a business center so we could print boarding passes, room and bed were comfortable and sizable. There was a good restaurant and also a sandwich place within walking distance. The hotel is also on a walking path system if one had time for that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chiver Great hotel with awesome staff
The room was clean, beds were perfect, room temp upon arrival was perfect for the warmth outside. The bed was perfect, not to soft or hard. Pillows were great (I usually take my own but forgot this time).
Matt at front Desk was awesome, courteous, helpful, and had recommendations on places to eat as well as location of gas stations being I'm from out of town. KCCO
Breakfast was good, with an awesome variety to choose from.
Convenience store by front desk was very reasonably priced and had a selection for a late night snack.
Location was at or about 15 miles from everything we were there for. i.e. MOA, Mystic Lake, Valley Fair, Minnesota Zoo
Construction out front, but I have lived in the cities where you had to detour 5 miles out of the way to get to the hotel so it didn't bother me any.
Overall I would stay again if I am in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Donald1956 Problems with our stay.
I sent a note to the General Manager with my comments prior to receiving your review request.
Road construction is terrible in the location of the Hotel. We should be told about the construction on the roads and tell the caller when making reservation. At least tell the customer what to expect.
Front desk staff was outstanding.
Left Wake up call for 3 nights and only received call once. Wake up call did not work in our room.
Had to have comforter replaced in our room due to being very dirty.
Pillows were so soft and need to be REPLACED.
Room needed TP and we called and had to go to front desk to get TP.
Room keys did not work for third night.
Sink in bath room a very SLOW drain.
Not acceptable in our thoughts for a Holiday Inn Express and did expect more because of the high price.

The two girls at the check in desk were fantastic. They helped us find a great pizza delivery, got us toothbrushes, made an ice
pack up for my husband, looked up the IKEA store for me, got us
a remote for our tv ( there was not one in our room, but they had
one for us immediately and even made sure it worked for us.) We are not usually that needy, but they took care of us!! Thank you
Brandi and Tara.

excuse any spelling or grammar issues, I am doing my review using talk to text. It is quite simply hey nice hotel, friendly staff, decent room that is clean. the hallway and ground areas were clean as well, and the breakfast was pretty good. For the price point on this hotel, you get more then you would expect. it is easy to get to and you are left feeling very safe. If you are looking for a hotel at a lower cost per night, I would recommend this place 100 percent.

Every thing was just great here. We had wonderful people who checked us in and took care of any question we had. Really liked them. This was close to main roads to it was fairly easy to get where we wanted to go. The traffic in Minneapolis was the terrible but on the weekend it was much better. I really recommend this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by particulartraveler Nice and clean but stuffy
First the staff and breakfast were great! Facility was easy to get to. Room was clean. Bathroom was clean. Suite had plenty of space and a fridge.
Now for some constructive criticism - even though I knew the room was clean, I couldn't help be distracted by the red juice stain on the floor by the garbage can and by some stains spattered on the arm of the sofa. There is no heating/cooling in the bedroom area of the suite which would have been nice so as not to freeze/cook out the person on the sleeper sofa (only heating/cooling unit is right next to sofa#. Because of there only being one unit in the suite, the suite got a little stuffy. Something housekeeping could put on their honey-do list is to fix the peeling paint on the bathroom ceiling #not a deal breaker - bathroom was good and clean#.
If you are the type of person looking for a soft bed #think memory foam/memory foam topper), this is not the bed. Bed is firm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RandyJS Overall experience
Overall we were pleased with the very aspect of the hotel. The location was easy for the destinations that we need to come and go to.
I guess what I would like to bring to your attention is the fact that one of the two queen beds was old and sagging into the middle. In my opinion it needs to be replaced. We were in room 319 and it was the bed close to the windows. So that the next guest does not experience a uncomfortable night's sleep, we would suggest that it be replaced.

The location and cleanliness of this facility are superior!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gobbleks Internet and Jacuzzi issues
Our room was at the end of the building, and the wireless internet speed was horrible. The connection would be dropped easily, and I had to keep signing on. The connectivity was similar to that of a dial-up modem: maddeningly slow.
Remedy: Some hotels have a wireless router that they place in your room, but the front desk staff at this property didn't even seem to know of the possibility.
Jacuzzi: The temp on June 21st was excessively hot. I can't think of any hotel Jacuzzi as hot as the one at this property, and I've been in several over the past few years. I couldn't even get in the water past my ankles. Other patrons also commented on the too-hot temperature of the water.
Would I stay at this property again? No, for the reasons I've mentioned.

We get to Minneapolis about four times a year and it seems no matter what hotel we choose there is some sort of sports related event in the area that means an overnight for the team members. The desk clerk assured us that she put us in a "hall" where there were few kids, but the door slamming down the other end of the hall lasted until after 11:00 and totally kept us up. With the number of floors is there a way to keep the kids on one or two floors? Our preference is for quiet, not near an elevator or soda machine--which we were also quite close to.
Our overall experience was good, and we like kids having had some of our own, but we're older now and more crabby and tired! LOL
Also, the kids at breakfast were pretty quiet and polite, but most of them took plates of bacon to eat while they drank orange juice--and there were so MANY of them it was hard to maneuver around them.
End of rant. We would stay at your hotel again, but would you be upfront if we asked about the number of teenage reservations?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimNMN Excellent Accommodations
I can't say enough of the great service and accommodations we received on our stays with this Holiday Inn Express in Minnetonka. It all started with Matt the front desk associate fulfilling my needed special requests. We started and ended a 8 day trip to the SW US with overnight stays here. It was by far the best of all our accommodations on the trip. The beds are excellent for my back and would say next to new. The room and furnishings are clean and neat. You will receive a 15% discount card for dinning at Jimmy's Dinning located across the street. We enjoyed superb food at this establishment.
Again; I want to Thank You Matt for making our stays so enjoyable.

For seven years, my partner and I have been coming to this Holiday Inn Express because of its location and convenience. I love the fact that the facility is consistently cleaned and maintained. More importantly I have noticed that there has been very little turn over in the staff over the years; that says something about the management. Either way the location and the people behind the desk make it an easy home-away-from-home choice for us every time.
I would like to acknowledge Mary who we have known the longest is always so nice to us and tries to get us a room on the 4th floor away from the elevators (because she knows I can not handle noise) which is greatly appreciated. Tara is so joyful and a wonderful addition to the front desk. Matt has a unique ability to sincerely welcome people and see them as individuals versus patrons passing through. And the head of House Keeping is a lady on top of her game! Thank you all.

We really enjoy staying at this hotel -- as the children say today, "It's all good." At first appearance -- it belies its great location... but one can walk to coffee shops, buy wine and dine at two great restaurants. Hop in your vehicle, and there are about three freeways adjacent which make an easy drive to Lake Minnetonka or Prior Lake -- or even Hennepin and Lake in Uptown Minneapolis. Even travelers without a vehicle receive the odd "lift" to shopping and business conferences. And last -- but certainly not least this hotel is well maintained, quiet and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ksvette Love this hotel!
We have stayed at HI Express Minnetonka, MN many, many times. We have also stayed at a couple of other competitors in the area (due to HI Minnetonka being full) and we ALWAYS return! This stay we were particularly impressed with two staff members: The young lady making our original reservations on 12/13/12: "Mary" who was incredibly pleasant and helpful, guaranteeing our choice of a particular room; and a young lady handling an unscheduled check-out by the name of "Tara". We had intended to stay 5 nights over Christmas, but after the 2nd night, we received a tragic phone call of the death of a family member in Michigan, and it became necessary to check out early. Tara handled this with grace and compassion, helping us make a reservation at another HI Express for a necessary trip through Wisconsin and on to Michigan. Both of these young ladies are to be commended.
Our rooms at HI Minnetonka are always clean and very comfortable, and the total staff is always professional. We will certainly return as part of our family lives in the area, and we visit often.

The front desk staff as well as the breakfast staff were awesome!
We were greeted everytime we entered the lobby area. If the same staff person was there, they made conversation about our last time through the lobby.
For example, we went out to dinner and as we were leaving staff asked where we were going. When we returned, they specifically asked how we had enjoyed the dinner and would we recommend it to anyone else etc.
Very pleased with this level of engagement!

I had a great stay at the hotel. I called the hotel 2 days before I was set to arrive to make a room change. When they looked at my reservation they upgraded me to suite because of my platinum priority club status. When I arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. The only thing that dampend my stay was young children running in the hall before 7:30 on a Sunday morning. I must not have been the only guest awakend because a short time later I did hear the front desk knocking on the door of the guest with the children....thank you.
