Good, clean property that is well maintained.

We stayed at this location due to the fact that my wife is allergic to my sister's cats. The room was clean and the property was appropriate for the rate. The breakfast is what we expected for this ... more

Poor Customer Service

08/12/2016 KSO, Saint Paul, Minnesota

We checked into this hotel on a night when it was clearly not fully booked. There were many vacant rooms, and yet the hotel put us in a room directly over the front entrance to the hotel. When we op... more

We are very sorry about the experience you had at our hotel. This is not a normal stay at our property. We normally try to rent these rooms very last due to the construction of the property. We only have very few room types in the hotel. However, I strongly agree about changing into a new room type right away at check-in. We apologize for the breakfast food and your entire staying not being satisfying. We hope you will give us another chance to offer you a better experience in the future.
