Since its been refurbished, this hotel is a pleasant place to stay, there's a Butter Burger's location in front of the hotel so you don't even have to get in the car with tired children if you want to grab something quick to eat. Easy on/off of 494, very friendly and helpful staff. Affordable. We had an flight delay getting us into Minneapolis at 1 a.m., the hotel reduced the cost of the stay because of the extemely late check in. Shuttle and proximity to Mall of America and airport big benefits and we stay here every time we come through town.
Pros: reasonable rates, near airport, friendly staff
Cons: wish breakfast was a little more substantial
