This was a very functional hotel The rooms were clean but in need of updating The showers were nice and warm but a little short for a tall person

The pool had a very cool looking tall twisty slide so it may have been better if my kids were with me The breakfast was post COVID normal, with some hot options Perhaps the best feature of this hotel was that it was located right next to a huge wetlands nature preserve with two walking loops Great for an early morning hike or winding down after a long day

The hotel and room itself was nice, no complaints but I’m giving this 2 stars because we were given a room where the door did not shut all the way and the deadbolt didn’t latch I didn’t notice the deadbolt until 9am and really didn’t notice the door not shutting completely until then when my daughter was able to get into our room without the key when she went to get ice in the hallway I called the front desk to change rooms and she told me there were empty rooms but those were for guests still waiting to get to hotel

I asked if someone would come up to fix the door and she said no one was around It was a sleepless night to say for sure I feel they could have done better

Haven’t been here almost 3 years and boy has it changed As a Corporate hotel, you can see how COVID has affected the amenities and service of this establishment Cody and Mike were great! But with reduced staffing, restaurant limited hours of service (no breakfast which was a huge plus, no lunch and no room cleaning -unless you ask-) has significantly diminished the allure of this place

As this is a Corporate option, I MIGHT return but it’s doubtfulIf you are considering going, check ti see what services are available before you book Don’t rely on websites!

Joseph Hill

Staff is accommodating and facility is clean They have a operating pool and hot tub Morgan’s restaurant and bar is connected to the hotel has a great vibe and waiting staff

The pictures on the google map listing along with the gym do need to be updated badly

Tony Frei

Not sure why this has a 4+ star review The front staff are horribly rude and don’t trust each other to check you in properly The pool is set so cold that kids will freeze

They set it for Olympic pool temperatures where people are exercising (like 80 degrees) and then they have no sympathy when your kids are turning blue There’s no continental breakfast Overall, definitely NOT a premiere hotel Most regular best westerns are FAR better than this dump

Janet Jean

The casino staff are extremely helpful to everyone They didn’t just give me directions they took me there Weekday prices were very reasonable

The bingo hall was way too cold for me Jacket temperature They don’t sell food in there so I got pretty hungry A few more signs about which direction places are would’ve been very helpful They rent scooters for those of us that need them and not overly expensive either I had a very enjoyable time other than the cold

Mark R. Wojahn

All the staff that I encountered were friendly and very helpful! Loved the smoke-free gaming area I’m not much of a gambler, but have avoided casinos over the years due to the smoke Glad they made a separate area for smokers

Took in a show at the Mystic Showroom and stayed one night in a Promenade Tower room which was modern, clean, and spacious Great experience overall!

Robby Seigler

Kinda pricey, but was well worth the costs The steakhouse is SUPERB with excellent staff and some world class chefs (try the salmon, and yes medium is PERFECT for the Salmon) I recommend that if you’re going to eat at the Steakhouse, make a reservation

On busy nights, it might be difficult to get a table Definitely on my lists of places to visit again in the future

C Piekarski

Pros: clean, new, sizable and comfortable Great little convenience store and plenty of pods and sociable areas to sit Checkout is 12 (great!) and was easy to push that back even further

High value for moneyCon: don’t get a room by an exit It’s a busy hotel so heavy foot traffic at exits and the doors aren’t insulated enough to mitigate the noise It kept me up all night Everything else was great

Hank Hultstrand

The first time i stayed here it was great Hospitality was awesome Place was clean amd inviting

The last time i stayed here everything felt a little off Room seemed less cared for We had reservations for two adults but towels and coffee for one Dirty glasses in the hallway for 3 days The same dirty glasses Great location if you need access to the western suburbs

Richard Brooks

The hotel was very clean, fresh, and modern looking (except the front desk… Personal opinion, but it didn’t mesh with the rest of the decor ) The restaurant served a decent breakfast, but they didn’t have anything along the lines of a continental breakfast beyond coffee

That was slightly disappointing The indoor pool and hot tub was baller, but I am not sure if our rooms were ever cleaned during our week stay

Doing remodeling, weird people hanging around in the parking lotSketchy and dirty! The place is NOT worth my moneyIt makes me a bit sad that I paid as much as I did and it’s disgusting

The pool isn’t available either They have curtains and electrical every whereFrustrated 😠

Danielle Gjestvang

This smaller hotel was very cozy and clean They were very accommodating when it came to our specialty vehicle after being on the road in a snow storm all night They also let us check in early

Our kiddos and us adults enjoyed a nice and clean spa and pool The front desk ladies were super helpful directing us with any questions or needs They were super friendly and really quite amazing to work with This is our Shakopee stay most definitely! You can’t go wrong with massage chairs and arcade games See you soon, Shakopee Inn

Jane Rasmussen

I had a great experience here, stayed the weekend, had family members staying in other hotels in the area and visited them as well I must say I was extremely pleased with my choice of staying here Front desk was fast at check in, hotel lobby was clean, hallway and elevator was clean

I had a jacuzzi room, it was clean and comfortable Hotel was clean, and quiet Hotel could use updated bedding and curtains, but for value and experience I had, I can see past that Kimberly was extremely helpful and friendly in the mornings with breakfast! I will definitely be coming back!

Tammy Daughtrey

I travel a fair amount for work I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel The staff (although I used the app to check in and out) were very friendly and helpful

The rooms were very clean The lobby was very large and had several tables available for small groups The wasn’t complimentary coffee/breakfast, but I was able to purchase a cup at the bar I will stay again when I return to the area

Ziyi Wang

The check-in time stated in the confirmation email was 3pm When we arrived around 4:50, the front desk staff Andrea told us that we can’t be checked-in yet because our room wasn’t ready yet We told her that we were supposed to check in at 3pm, and it had passed two hours than that

Andrea used the excuse that there were too many rooms for them to clean and they didn’t clean all the rooms at the time yet We made clear that we don’t accept that as an excuse And then Andrea said “YOU GUYS GOT LUCKY, I found one,” and then checked us in During the entire interaction with Andrea, she was very condescending and rude to us We didn’t feel welcoming when we arrived the hotel We highly suspect that she was being racist to us because we are people of color and wore a mask at the time we checked in After we entered the room, we found the toilet didn’t work properly and it makes very loud noise when it refills with water The room was located at the 1st floor Sound insulation was near zero!! We clearly heard people talking in the hotel lobby at midnight We are extremely disappointed by this stay with Sheraton

Keely Ward

I have to say I’ve had nothing but an amazing experience every-time I stay here Specifically tonight, I had an amazing dinner with Todd being extremely attentive behind the bar, per usual Then, there was a situation on the 3rd floor and I was provided a drink and soup by the GM, Tiffany, while I waited for it to clear

I could not be happier with my serviceI typically stay downtown but this place is way better!! Stay here everytime for quality and amazing customer serviceThank you for having amazing staff and an amazing hotel!

OUTSTANDING – My first time staying at Holiday Inn Shakopee,Minnesota I was pleasantly surprised from the start as i could not smell smoke of any kind like other hotels The front desk staff were friendly, check-in was simple

The room was clean, the bathroom was clean, the carpet was clean, and i say again – no cigarette or other smoke smells The shower has full size bottles of Dove shampoo, Dove conditioner & Dove body wash (Dove bar hand soap too), nice touch! Not crazy about low flow rainfall shower heads but i understand I did not use the pool or gym so no commentNow the impressive part – a real hot breakfast in the lobby Your choice of cheese omelette, vegetable omelette, turkey sausage patties, crisp hash brown patties, strip bacon, biscuits w/gravy, cinnamon buns, 3 types of cereal, pancakes, toast / bagels, yogurt, assorted fruit, packaged muffins, coffee, tea and 4 types of juice The girls working the kitchen were fantastic! The kitchen staff were constantly bringing out hot foodTwo Thumbs Up Holiday Inn, I will be back!

Patrick Peters

Don’t fall for what may be promoted as a distinctive lodging option in Edina MN It has some serious downsides despite the laudable mission The rooms are spacious and quiet, but what they don’t tell you until you book the room: Parking is off-site and a block or more away

Not an ideal situation for seniors or anyone with mobility issues There is no microwave There is no ice TV is not cable, so be prepared for local broadcasts and limited viewing options But there is Netflix Meh There are no towel bars Not a single one Toilet paper felt like crepe paper One ply, only thinner Worst ever This place is in the MSP flight path, and the windows and exterior walls are not insulated against noise There are odor eliminators placed in strategic locations in the room, presumably to eliminate objectionable odors…from what, who knows? ( It was once an assisted living facility) So, the room was overly perfumed The HVAC is very, very inadequate Don’t let the room size and pretty pictures fool you We will not be staying again

A great stay!The old gal is showing her age and we had a few small issues but the staff went out of their way to insure that all of our needs were met quickly and efficientlyNick, the GM was amazing as well as was the day manager

Lisa perhaps? Kudos!The fact that they now accept dogs is HUGE for usThe breakfast was surprisingly tasty, we were impressed!We would definitely recommend

Troy Weiland

If you are thinking you are going to have a “Hampton” experience at this hotel, STAY CLEAR My room was dreadful Within the first hour, this is what I noticed: Long black hair, (I have short blonde) in the bathroom sink, tub, and spare bed

A HUGE crack in the bathroom sink, and the room phone was stained so yellow it looked like it had been pulled out of a smoker’s convention that it had been sitting at for 10 years Needless to say, I checked out two days early, the place was so so disgustingI wish I could do a half star on here, one star is being too generous

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect It was comfortable, clean, and so so so cozy! The inn keepers were so kind and attentive and we really felt at home It the perfect walking distance to the lake and a bunch of great shops and restaurants, which makes everything just that much easier

Thank you for a great stay!

Jill McFarling

We had a great weekend getaway at this Inn We had the cardinal room which gave the additional space of a table/chairs and kitchen It was very quiet; we didn’t hear anyone else from our suite

I loved how soft the water was; very relaxing in the big tub Delicious breakfasts The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and shops Easy parking

Mark Schabert

We stayed here for a one night anniversary vacation and time to ourselves, as we have seven children and live just a few minutes away, but didn’t want to leave the kids for too long or be too far away from them in case they needed anything We had been hoping to enjoy the lake and bike trails, but due to the unseasonably cold weather and snow, spent the afternoon/evening at the Mall of America and the night at the Inn We had a wonderful time, and the Bird House Inn was a lovely experience! Although we did not have the pleasure of meeting the owners, everything was clean and welcoming and the breakfast was very nice

The Inn is very quaint, beautifully decorated and affordable The new bathroom with large hot tub in the Bluebird Room was so nice We hope to do this again sometime Thank you!

I love the huge pool I like to do laps The staff is great and the rooms are cozy

I do suggest making sure the bedding is fully cleaned Twice now I have experienced bits on my body A couple months ago and two weeks ago now I had to go see my Doctor this second timeHotels are Hotels things are going to happen However, I suggest checking in on the staff and making sure proper procedures are consistent

Ricardo B.

Double check your booking before getting there to make sure the payments are all set up and there is no extra fees for your key card in the event it is deactivated Besides that everyone is friendly and the breakfast is the best The rooms are super clean and smells so good

I’m talking fluffy Belgium waffles, French toast, sausage, bacon, bagels cereal, eggs, juice and let’s not forget the ☕

Brandon Ebensteiner

The hotel was fine, looked nice on the surface but definitely not maintained at all Our room had a busted divider frame in the seating area as well as a broken closet door mirror I let the front desk know about it immediately apon us checking into our room, they said they would let maintenance know right away

we stayed 4 days and it was never addressed The other negative part was the pool, my daughter was only able to swim once due to the extremely over chlorinated water It was hard to sit in there it was so bad Her eyes burned for days after swimming in thereThe staff was friendly The room was clean, it is just sadly starting to get run down from what I can tell

My bridal party and I spent Friday night here and then my husband and I spent the following two nights for our wedding Chad and Laura were exceptional from beginning to end in booking our rooms and taking good care of all of us while we were there They were incredibly friendly and helpful and assisted us with whatever we needed at such a busy time

They made excellent breakfasts and accommodated my request of no meat items by providing me with an exceptional alternative to eat each day The house is absolutely beautiful as are the gardens I highly recommend staying here and are so grateful it was available to us for our event We will definitely be back for future anniversaries 🙂

The staff here is amazing! They really go the extra mile The house tour was a really nice addition to our stay This location is on the historic register

This is an excellent hotel locate in one of the most affluent suburbs of Minneapolis The hotel is conveniently located only 15-30 minutes from the airport (depending on traffic), and within walking distance from two malls, one of them being, I think, the first mall in AmericaThe lobby is a bit impersonal but the staff is very friendly and professional

The check-in process was fast and simple, and the information about the hotel was genuine and easy to understand, not the “commercial subtitle style info”The hotel features a restaurant, a great bar, a gym, and a pool And, of course also conference facilitiesI was upgraded and had a fantastic room with views in two directions The room was very clean, and there were helpful amenities I was surprised, however, that the hotel doesn’t have complimentary slippers That is odd for a hotel of this standardThe breakfast is very good, and if you are in a hurry you can get a coffee and a snack from the bar in the morning Also, there is a Starbucks right next door and it opens at 6:30 so you have plenty of optionsWe didn’t have dinner at the hotel so we can’t rate the restaurant, but others said it was quite good However, if you prefer to eat at another restaurant you can just walk across the street to the mall, which features (at least) two very nice restaurantsIf we come back to MSP this will definitely be one of the options


Great location! Located in one of the most opulent suburbs in the Twin Cities!Attentive staff…very friendly and accommodating!Atmosphere is very inviting and the rooms were attractively clean!Great location as well as this property is across the street from both the Southdale Center and the Galleria malls Perfect for eating and shopping!

Michelle Merson

The front desk person by the name of Julius could be the rudest person in hospitality that I have ever met He told me to stay on the club level and explained all the amenities but forgot to mention the club level didn’t have the amenities available on the weekend ( not even coffee) So I asked him later in my stay why he “left out” that important fact and he was unapologetic and rude and called me horrible names even though I was asking a reasonable question

I would be very careful of this man who, in my opinion, has a couple of screws loose to become un hinged the way he did Westin should be ashamed of this employee and hopefully will not expose future guests to him

Went down for a wedding and spent 2 nights here in 2 different rooms First room was a suite, working fridge, microwave, dishwasher and fireplace with different colors in it Very spacious room, separate bedroom with a poolside view

I slept on the pull out bed which I found to be comfortable Separate air conditioning for the livingroom space and bedroom which was very nice Second night, was a regular room Also very comfortable but I did find some food residue left under the desk there from a past guest Pillows and bed was very comfortable and the refrigerator, coffeemaker, and TV were all in working order Desk staff was very pleasant to work with and greeted us every time we walked in or out the front doors I’ve added pictures of the pool/jacuzzi area

This hotel was okay, but not for the price The “water park” is a joke There aren’t very many pictures of it on the website for a reason

There’s a little splasher area and one water slide The pool doesn’t go deeper than 3ish feet, and it is NEVER on unless you walk all the way out to the front desk and wait for someone to come along so you can request it be turned on There is only one elevator in the building and it’s right by the pool, so it stinks like corn chips and dirty, wet feetOur room had candy on the floor when we got there The toddler found one right away, and then we found a few more plus a lot of crumbs in the carpet We left a couple bags of ice in the tub to melt overnight and they left rings in the grime inside the tub One of the TVs in our room didn’t have a working remote We filled out the requests for our stay ahead of time, but we didn’t get any extra pillows or towels When the room is reserved for more than 2 people, why aren’t there more than two towels?The staff was nice They did have a little area where you could buy snacks or microwavable things We were able to go to the front desk every single time to ask for coupons when we wanted to eat in the restaurant, which made the kids’ food free

I came out for a business meeting and when I came back to the hotel after the meeting the room had already been cleaned and $300 of my money was stolen from the roomDon’t use this hotel theirs no safe to keep your belongs in and the house keeping will steal your money or anything of VauleAs a business owner myself this is so unprofessional

Make sure to never stay here I’ve been in plenty of hotels and never had anything stolen, especially money!Bad for business you guys should make sure you hire people that are more trustworthy and do better background checks!

Brides beware, if you’re thinking of booking a room block here, reconsider We booked our June 2022 wedding block a year in advance with the hotel manager who at the time was so helpful and let us choose one of the few suites they have so our wedding party would have a place to get ready and we would have somewhere to go after our wedding in the evening I called a week before the wedding to confirm every person’s hotel room that was in the room block as well as our booked suite was correct to make sure there was no stress for the big day and they assured me everything was fine and provided all of the information requested

Our guests booked their rooms throughout the year and upon arrival many of them had numerous mistakes with their rooms or were double booked or were booked for the wrong nights When I arrived to check in they did not have our suite that we booked a year in advance to use as the bridal suite available We were told there was a plumbing issue in the room and it was no longer available, if someone books an entire room block around a bridal suite room you should probably let them know before they check in at 7 PM the day before their wedding that their room is not available… we were instead offered a small room with a Jacuzzi taking up most of the living room as a replacement The front desk girl working that evening clearly started five minutes ago and was on a Bluetooth headset with her manager the entire night learning how to do her job repeating verbatim what her manager was telling her to tell us… Other people from our wedding party spoke with the manager as well and nothing was done about our room not being available I’m sure that our room was just fine and they messed up the reservation or purposely gave it to someone else for more money as it was suddenly available the following day later in the evening but we didn’t have time to change accommodations in the middle of our wedding and we didn’t need the room anymore as everyone was already ready hours before overall the hotel was dirty and dated and I wouldn’t have chosen it again even if it weren’t for all the headaches It was very stressful and luckily was the only thing that went wrong with our wedding It’s too bad the wonderful manager we originally booked with had since left and management has clearly fallen apart and quit hiring competent staff If you’re looking for a hotel block for a wedding I would not risk the stress of this location

I stayed here on 4/28 The lobby is your standard Americinn Looks stately and clean

The breakfast was good for the price and being freeMy issues start with the hotel room They are recently remodeled in the sleeping area and look nice However the bathrooms are old The shower head was almost completely covered in calcium and the water was very hardThe door had a bend in the metal footer which was sharp, and the carpet on the wall was peeling If you stay here, remember extra pillows, the ones supplied are smallThey have a pool which I did not use

A decent hotel with ok beds The kids enjoyed the small pool while we went in the hot tub to relax from a long day Hot breakfast is provided

They had scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, muffins, bagels, toast, cereal, waffles, etc Also provided, was a variety of juices as well as coffee & tea One thing I noticed that I would change is that they should leave the hot water dispenser on for those who enjoy an evening cup of tea After a soak in the hot tub, I went to make a cup of tea only to realize that the water was cold Overall, I’d stay again We had no real issues

Yolanta Holmes

Room was large and clean; children loved the pool and hot tub; breakfast buffet selection was very extensive, and the manager was great: I had a work meeting and planned to dial in from the business center off the reception, but he invited me to use the private board room instead An excellent stay all round, and we will definitely return
