The breakfast was one of the best we have experienced. Our favorite? The cinnamon roll muffins!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dstnce A Great Experience at a Very Nice Property
My significant other and I were hiking in the Taylors Falls area for the day and we decided that we didn't want to drive all the way home. So we started looking for places to stay that accept small pets.
We called several places and each said they didn't and we eventually stumbled upon this property. The website said the property was sold out but we took a shot and called the front desk anyways. The woman that answered was very helpful and said they did in fact have a few rooms left. We booked a standard room and drove straight over.
Upon arrival, the same pleasant woman greeted us and quickly checked us in. We had been hoping to use the hot tub but the pool area was quite nosy as there was a number of families staying at the hotel and my significant other sort of cringed when i mentioned that we still maybe go in. I asked the front desk attendant, being a Platinum Elite IHG member, if they could upgrade us to one of the fireplace suites. She said she didn't have a fireplace but that she did have a whirlpool suite that she would happily put us in. Music to our ears! After a long day of hiking and walking through Taylors Falls & Stillwater, the ability to relax in peace & quiet in our room in our own whirlpool tub was AMAZING!
The next morning, even though the hotel was very full, breakfast was a breeze. The attendant was on top of everything that needed to be refreshed or replaced. There was plenty of everything, which was nice to see being that we got down to the room near the end of the serving window and the families had all gone through before we even got down there.
The whole experience was very very nice and much appreciated after a long day in the woods. It certainly made our impromptu weekend getaway all that much better. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone coming to that area for work or pleasure. And we will keep this property in mind for the next time we decide to come to the area [....only next time maybe we'll book in advance :) ].

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tigs222 overall stay
My overall stay was very good. However, as a single female traveling alone, I did not appreciate being put in a first floor room. That had me somewhat on edge, even though the neighborhood appeared to be safe. Stay was friendly and the rooms were clean.

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. My husband and I came in for the Twin Cities Marathon, and we booked the whirlpool suite. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the whirlpool was amazing - especially after running 26.2 miles! My husband loves the shower, because at 6'4" tall, he always likes to find a shower with a shower head high enough so he doesn't have to hunch over to take a shower. We love that this hotel is pet-friendly so we can bring our dog with us on our travels to Minnesota. There is a nice pet area on the side of the hotel for when nature calls them. If you're looking for a good place for dinner, Ray Js next door makes a very good burger and has some awesome dessert choices - and you can walk to it from the hotel.
My husband and I always enjoy staying at this Holiday Inn Express, and we plan on staying here every time we come to St. Paul. We can't recommend it enough!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCAGBWI Convenient and nice
We intended to stay in River Falls, WI, where our child attends college, but all of the rooms were booked up, so we stayed in Woodbury. The room was very nice, the breakfast was fantastic, and the location was close to many dining and shopping locations.
My only criticism, is that there needs to be a wider range of news channels offered - MSNBC was "blocked," but Fox News was everywhere. Not all of your guests are of that political persuasion. This seems to be a common problem at many hotels in the American Midwest.
