We had no idea what we were getting into when we reserved this hotel room online. Upon check-in, the people were friendly. The lobby was very small. So was the room. The hotel was very old and run down but served its purpose for us.
We didn't get all we said we would with our room. No coffee pot, no iron or ironing board. We had 1 bath towel in our room.
The room was clean but presented difficulty walking around the bed because the lack of room. The sheets were soft and the bed was like brand new.
The bathroom was super tiny only providing us with a stand up shower, not a full bathroom like we were offered.
We also got a smoking room (which is not what we wanted) so EVERYTHING needed washed when we got home because of the smell.
Pool was in a different building! The idea of walking across the parking lot when it's only 40 degrees at night wasn't too entising.
Very close access to Mall of America, Ikea and the highway although you couldn't hear any of the traffic in the room.
We really only needed a place to sleep. If that's all you are needing or looking for at an inexpensive rate, this would be good.
