Feedback From Real Customers


I was really pleasantly surprised at how fantastic our stay was given the price was cheaper than the competition I expected, given reviews, that it would be good, but it was great! Excellent staff at the desk, who even offered to help find a discount given why we were in townThe food staff, who were kind and helpful, and created quality way above hotel normal food

Really, way better than your average hotel food–and free! Lobby and rooms were clean, well appointed, and comfortable I watched multiple times how staff took pride in their work; I watched a staff member pass just a tiny paper on the floor He stopped and picked it up They all appeared happy, too I highly recommend!

My family and I stayed two nights last week (Thurs/Fri) and could not be more pleased with this Hotel Property was well kept, rooms were clean and spacious, pool was small but nice for the kids FREE Breakfast was excellent with lots of offerings hot and cold

Nightly reception with hot buffet and drinks for FREE was amazing! Staff were very friendly and helpful as was the bar and grill staff located inside the hotel At the price per night it was an awesome deal considering all the freebies they provide We originally were going to stay just one night for a concert in town but loved it so much we opted for a second Would highly recommend this property if staying in the downtown area, we will be returning again soon just for fun

Amanda Heyda

Stayed for almost 3 weeks while my loved one was in Regions Hospital The staff were amazing They were so friendly, helpful, and understanding with all the stress I was under

The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, hot breakfast and supper daily and free adult drinks at supper Which really took alot of stress off me Plus they have guest laundry room so I could wash clothes! Wish I would have made it too the pool They also have 4 elevators centrally located so there was little wait

Bea Urself

Overall a decent stay The Jacuzzi suite really is what it looks like in the pictures, saddest part being that it’s is right there when you walk in the door so if your partner goes out/comes in while you are enjoying it, you risk being seen by anyone in the hallway Late check out was an option -11am was extended to 1pm for a reasonable $26

85 The location however seemed weird and there is no view from that particular room

When we pulled in, the lot was nice and clean We made our way into the lobby, which seemed really nice and clean The girl at the counter was sitting there with her phone and earbuds in

I asked where the bathroom was and then she got up and pointed the way She was nice enough, but seemed sort of lazy I went to the restroom and my husband checked us in He said she acted as if she didn’t really want to be there She also told him that they were pretty short-staffed and all the rooms hadn’t been cleaned yet since the weekend started Okaaaay Why would you tell that?? When I was in the bathroom, I noticed that it really needed some tidy-ing up There was toilet paper and paper towels all over the floor and the soap container needed to be filled up There was soap all over the vanity I thought to myself that our room better not look like that We went to the entrance where I room was closest to and there was a garbage can that was completely overflowing I thought that instead of sitting on her bum at the front desk, that girl could have been tending to these issues It just made a nice place look bad I liked our room Nice space and clean But the beds are old and not at all comfy for two people in one bed I think our son slept like a baby (but he’s a teenager and would have slept as well on the floor! Haha!) The mattresses are just way to soft and ours had a slant to it on one side In the bathroom the exhaust fan didn’t work, it was very dark to take a shower and the water went ICE COLD on me for about 20 seconds That woke me up! Also, the drain in the sink smelled like mold and made me gag when I had to brush my teeth or wash my face I guess we got our money’s worth If the things I mentioned were addressed, I could have easily given it 5 stars I’m giving it 3 just because of the mattress and I didn’t get a lot of sleep

Eva Gallant

Excellent customer service! I took advantage of the park and fly option which is super convenient and affordably priced—keeping away the hassle associated with traveling Upon arrival, ALec who checked me in couldn’t have been more excellent and more patient in explaining everything, since I will be with a pet upon my return From making the reservation to checking out every employee was very friendly and professional

This Best Western goes above and beyond to help ease your travel Additionally, the rooms were very clean and spacious, and the bed was super comfy Great assortment of amenities, along with a fridge and microwave I am already looking forward to my return stay

Zae&Mommy Glover

Awesome hotel! They have great security You cannot access the use of the elevator or secure parking garage without a key, nor the building itself They do charge you under $20 for parking but it’s worth it

They have breakfast and a decent selection of items The hotel is well kept and the rooms were very clean and nice Was disappointed in the size of the pool They do have a little kids area w/ pool that’s not at all deep with a slide and water spout type contraption The staff were all friendly and helpful Location was okay but I never had a reason to go out and about in the city We were in town visiting family Double check your charges after you check out It might have been a fluke but I had mysterious charge that they did end up refunding me for Jim is one of the managers at this hotel and he was very professional, patient and helpful when resolving this issue I definitely would stay again

Almont Sadie

After having a horrible experience at Best Western Como park, we cancelled our reservations and went here Feeling so let down by our first encounter with such unprofessional staff, this place was a breath of fresh air!! The check in process was perfect The receptionist, Jacky, was so friendly and helpful!! It was beautiful, bright and clean! Location was perfect! They even have a beautiful, little attached patio to enjoy outside

I highly recommend this hotel and our family looks forward to visiting again as this is where we will always stay in the future:)

Ashley Munk

Breakfast was good Fresh and many options Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable

A little disappointed with the pool and jacuzzi listing as the jacuzzi was the entirety of the whole pool We were expecting more of a hot tub or separate area for jacuzzi Otherwise, it was fine Staff were very friendly and the building was very secure

Best place to say The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was to die for words can’t explain it The breakfast was cooked for you

Kinda of like a restaurant is but better You site at a table and they hand you a Menu, you tell them what you want and the chef will cook it for you Pretty cool if you as me I wish all hotels did it this way So worth the drive The front counter people were amazing as well I would totally go back there again Thank you so much

Snacky Naykki

We love the location! So thats why we like stay here But our room was an ADA room, and being in a wheelchair was very tough in that room No where could my wheelchair fit with the bed in the way and TV stand/clothes closet

So I had to stay in the bed, the bathroom was nice size and nice roll in shower But the toilet was lower than a typical ADA toiletAlso, one other thing that was confusingcheck out is at noon why was housekeeping knocking on our door AND coming in before 10am? We were sleeping, recovering from an awesome weekend Our roommate was in the room and housekeeping did the same thing to him so he checked out way before check out time!Staff was very nice, and professional Brian the bartender was amazing! He was one of the reasons we come backplease keep him!We would like to come back, but needing a little better ADA room arrangement If you would like to contact me, please do

Taylor R

Check in was nice but let’s get down to what makes this place phenomenalBrian at the Bar/Restaurant is the most pleasant person I’ve ever had the pleasure dealing withI cannot say enough good things about him

Cherise Fillinger

Although the hotel was recently remodeled and looked nice there seemed to be some deeper issues The elevators were slow and noisy and didn’t seem to run wellWe had dozens of ants in our room

The ants were in our bathroom as well as on the dresser in the main room The room also did not include a hair dry and a burnt out light bulb in the the bed side table (We did not complain until checkout as we arrived late and were gone all day We noticed the ants when we got back but we leaving early the next morning)When we mentioned the ants and light bulb to the front desk staff at check out they didn’t take note of our room number It was clear they either knew about the ant problem in the hotel or didn’t care they have an ant problem We did not ask for or expect any compensation and were only interested in seeing they cared about the issues This is not a cheap hotel and I expected much better at this price point

Zebulen Dickey

I am a Hilton Honors member and made a reservation at this location for one night being in town for work I had stayed here multiple times before because of its location and I liked the rooms I was asked to show the card I planned on using to pay for the room(the same card I used to make the reservation) and was told that they could not accept it

I explained to the gentleman at the front counter that it was a business card that I use while traveling and have used it at this location before as recently as the week before He said that was irrelevant and he couldn’t do anything to help I was quite furious when I left Especially because it was 1030 at night and I was exhausted I got to my vehicle, cancelled my reservation and made another one at the Hampton Inn 5 minutes down the road and didn’t have any issues paying with the same card that was turned down earlierI don’t ever plan on recommending this location to anyone nor do I plan on staying here againThank you

Kacey Hammer

Rooms and public spaces were clean, which is rare these days Housekeepers said hi when they saw us in the hallways, which is niceFront desk staff wasn’t very friendly and they forgot to fulfill our request a few times

Elevator was very slow the last day When we asked about it, the front desk was obviously irritated that they had to answer about the slow elevatorPool is indoors but well maintained and clean with towels at the ready

The rooms and the home itself are gorgeous, the mattress was way comfier than most hotel mattresses I’ve slept on, and the owner was an excellent host! She let our group take over the dining room for the night to celebrate a birthday with takeout and a tabletop game, and in the morning she made us french toast, even accommodating my partner’s cinnamon allergy A fantastic experience all around! We’ll definitely be back 🙂


My wife and I stayed here for a birthday getaway and had a fantastic experience The lovely property and rich history of the neighborhood was worth it alone, but access to restaurants only a couple blocks away and a wonderful breakfast cooked by Whitney, the owner, along with an engaging conversation with her and the other guests during that delicious meal made this a truly remarkable experience

Jeff Gammon

My wife and I recently stayed a night for an early Valentine’s Day celebration The building is beautiful and cozy- as are much of the surrounding neighborhoods Parking was super easy

The owner was such a sweet and friendly person- she made a truly amazing breakfast for everyone! If a had to split hairs on potential improvements: the fireplace in our room wasn’t a working fireplace- that would have added to the ambiance on a cold winter night Also, the water has a slight sulfur smell to it Other than those minor things- would highly recommend staying here!

My family and I stopped here on our way through headed home from a week in the boundary waters Everyone was very friendly We booked late at night and showed up even later but the staff was very ready to help

Unfortunately we did not get the two double bed rooms we requested so that everyone could get their own bed but they did say they were full with a wedding and wrestling That being said It would have been really nice to know that it would not be what we requested before we got up to our roomsThat being said the 5 stars reflect the rest of our stay! My room was immaculate, the cookies were warm, the shower was so clean and refreshing, and the bed was incredibly comfortable The next morning we enjoyed a very hot and fresh breakfast on the second floor where Moe was very attentive to our coffee and needs! The coffee was fresh and hot and the bacon perfectly cooked! You could tell the staff are all hard workers!I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would like to personally thank each of the staff members we had the chance to interact with!

Matt Bozovsky

Friendly staff and great breakfast! I stayed for 2 nights in a king room The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable As mentioned in other reviews, the room was a little dated; however, nothing terrible

Parking was nice in the ramp, and the elevator opened right to the hotel lobby You do have to pay for breakfast, but there were a lot of options, and in my opinion, it was worth it I would recommend the hotel! There wasn’t a lot of traffic downtown on the weekend so that was nice as well

Rebecca Bang

First thing, great staff Every staff member we crossed paths with was pleasant and helpful Biggest kudos to Anita that checked us in

Gave info on best places to eat and gave hints on best way to navigate and get around downtown! The hotel is older as others have said and not a ton open as we thought would be Alliance Bank Center hard to get through and not a lot of restaurants open there like we thought, but still walking distance to Xcel Arena and other food options Overall room was clean, good price, restaurant in lobby was open, so overall, 5 stars because to me customer service makes or breaks it and their customer service is top notch

Stayed at hotel for honeymoon and it was perfect Amazing food delivered to the room from the restaurant, all staff were friendly and accommodating Everything was clean and loved the suite, the tub is large enough even my 6’5” hubby was able to comfortably relax and bathe

The common area was luxurious so it was nice to have a quiet meal in the room one night and play cards with a local friend Definitely want to go back! The rooftop bar was amazing as well!!

Emilie Christensen

I have stayed at Omni Viking Lakes a few times, and there are a some things that keep me coming back The hotel is beautiful! The Nordic Viking theme is just perfect, with subtle and tasteful nods to the Purple&Gold Vikings who’s training facility is just next door This hotel is high end while still being inviting and comfortable

Side note: If you are a MN Vikings fan, you just might end up having a drink and some great conversation with a player or coach ;)The rooms and spaces are exceptionally clean and well appointed The staff- from the front desk to the restaurant, and bar staff- have all been so kind, professional, and welcomingTheir loyalty program is so thoughtful! Sometimes a glass of champagne at check in, complimentary wine/beer at the lounges or restaurants, or complimentary coffee from the in-house Caribou Coffee branded shop are always so appreciated I recently also booked services at the spa and it was truly a luxury experienceSo, with all of the hotels to choose from in the area, I’ll continue to come to Omni

Cassandra Krzebietke

This place is excellent My fiancé and I booked a regular room and were able to upgrade to a suite for half the price We had a huge bathtub and shower room

Very clean room, comfy bedThe food down at the restaurant is good too Only complaint I have is the fries were not all that great But my Korean Fried Chicken sandwich and his steak was so yummy! We had breakfast down at the little coffee shop (wasn’t great for the price…)We also got couples massages at the spa and were treated like royalty when we went in there You can use the spa all day if you book a serviceOverall, it was a nice and enjoyable experience We were sad to leave!

TC Fencing

Modern hotel near train stop, handy Rooms were very nice with no ambient light leaking and glowing everywhere Big window and super comfortable beds with a good A/C unit as well

Rooms very quiet too Only downside no drawers for clothes, just closet and two shelves Bathroom small and efficient and not sure if all are the same but in mine, if you were someone who brings a lot of stuff to put in the bathroom, you’ll have trouble Restaurant had a very nice breakfast, cooked to order, reasonably priced for a hotel The game room was fantastic! Ping Pong and other things to do – and we used it too! Gym looked nice (great owl murals on wall) but we didn’t get to use it Staff very pleasant all around, and good security Can’t get past main entry door without key so not anyone can hang around lobby

Bruce Buerger

Room decor and functions were a very different experience that what I’ve had at other hotels Lots of electrical outlets but no drawers for clothes No closet either but large functional art piece on the wall to hang items

Everything was comfortable Told the front desk person about something we saw and were surprised by getting offered a drink ticket instead of an offer to move us Bartender was really good Impressed with his infused liquors

Lucian Torres

Nice Hotel, clean areas, the room have a nice size, the bed is comfy, bathroom was clean and with enough space, big LG TV, Fridge, Safe box, big window, and the front desk lady was very kind The only thing they need to do better is for the parking spaces, when I get there, they already doesn’t had parking space, all of them was busy I needed to park in a private parking in the next street, not so bad

Friedericke Wowerat (FredW414)

My room was clean and we had a decent night’s sleep I walked into the Hotel and the desk person was sitting in a chair I didn’t know that he was the desk person

While I checked in a woman asked for towels for the pool area and since the person was checking me in, he didn’t tend to her needs immediately She actually waited for awhile When I checked in he proceeded to put a $150 hold on my card for incidentals, because I prepaid through a third party I personally didn’t care for this because I checked in at approximately 5:15pm and checked out at 6am the next morning Still waiting for the charge to go back on my card SmhI never experienced this at other Country Inn and Suite locations even when I purchase through a third partyAs I was checking out at 6am there were family members in the lobby? It actually made me feel somewhat uncomfortable I probably won’t stay at this location again because I didn’t feel fully comfortable

We appreciated that this hotel went the extra mile in helping us secure a room block for our wedding and arrange transportation to take one thing off our list Renee was great to work with and we enjoyed our stay at this hotel for the big day Loved having a fresh hot breakfast served each morning as well

The only improvement I would suggest would be making it easier for guests in the room block to book their rooms; they have to call the hotel and I heard some guests had to try a couple of times to get it done

This is a very clean, well run hotel with accommodations in like new conditions Everything was really clean, kept up and the service was outstanding and very friendly and customer focused This will be my hotel of choice when I stay in Minneapolis

The breakfast meal was very quick and had really good choices for a hotel restaurant, buffet and menu The service at breakfast was really friendly cheerful and quick Dinner menu lacks variety and the bar well it is a hotel bar in the city Prices for drinks a little steep Overall a great choice To be clear this is not a five star hotel, but for the type and tier hotel it is, you can’t find better

David Dobrindt

Location is great That’s the best I can say about this hotel They won’t service your room

Even if you call down in the morning before leaving for the day and they say they will take care of it, they won’t service your room Parking is 22 a day and the garage is full at night so if you get back after 8 or 9 you have to park in a lot nearby and walk I am a lifetime diamond and travel 3 weeks a month, loyal Hilton customer, usually very patient but a number of other things added to my issues with this location There is a HI and Home2 close so will try those next time

The rooms were clean, housekeeping was great But and it might seem petty but their was no continental breakfast or coffee The manager on duty blamed employees not showing up, which in todays society I completely understand

But there needed to be some sort of compensation, we even got charged for an Orange juice and water which sounds petty, but as a Hilton Honors member, you need to do better It’s not our fault you didn’t have employees show up, but when we booked we expected breakfast as part of our deal

Green Heron Bed and Breakfast

Very seldom do we get a chance to travel, but when we do, where do we stay? Why another bed and breakfast of course, and this one was amazing! From the location, right up the road from the Como Conservatory, close to restaurants, and surrounded by beautiful architecture, to the wonderful breakfasts and conversation Carla is delightful! She has lived there for years and knows so much about the local area and we were wowed with her culinary talent We will be back!

A magical and truly comforting experience! The entire place is gorgeous and decorated with a beautifully curated eye There’s an enchanting garden in front and it’s only a few steps from lake Como Carla is a warm and gracious host

All the little touches and extras in the rooms make you feel cared for and special I loved all the antique books and quilts!

Claire Federici

We all loved the place We had 5 family members who stayed between 5-7 nights each Carla is so gracious and interesting, her dogs are fantastic, the furnishings are endlessly interesting-so much to look at! And the breakfasts were delicious, with interesting conversations with other guests

The location just across the street from the lake and an easy walk from the band shell made it so simple to go rent a canoe or kayak or buy an ice cream I would certainly stay there again, and recommend it to any of my friends and family

Facility is nice, however, nothing went according to plan Got two rooms and requested them adjoining, they weren’t When I first got here they had the rooms in opposite sides of the hotel

Had 3 kids with me with 2 teenagers and under the impression the room slept 6 but only 2 beds No pull out couch, only the floor Very noisy, however, there was a wrestling tournament in town so lots of kids Mini fridge was full of ice so couldn’t really use because nothing fit Overall the place seemed clean and updated Not an ideal experience

We stayed at this a courtyard by Marriott on Thursday March 24th and rented 2 rooms, one for my family and one for my sister’s family When we arrived, Matthew the Operations Manager (which he told us over and over again), checked us in The check in process took 20 minutes and at the end he asked us if we planned to leave our car while traveling, to which we answered yes

He rolled his eyes and became very clearly frustrated and explained how he would have to do everything over and how much more expensive it would be, which we were fine with Our kids were getting restless which was clearly distracting to him and he raised his voice at my sister and I that the kids needed to “sit down and be quiet”When we finally got to our room I called the front desk to ask if we could order pizza and have it delivered to the pool The person who answered said yes Once at the pool, Matt the Operations Manager came to our table, raised his voice that we could not have food in the pool We explained what the front desk said but he said we had to “get out” of the pool area and that he would be standing there to make a sure we leftOnce back in our room I got a call from the front desk that we needed to being our friends and family documents to the front desk They never asked for them when we checked in and refused to let me email them to them like I have at every other Marriott we have used a friends and family discount at Both of my kids were sleeping so I could not go use their printer and provide them to them The woman who called explained she would be adjusting our room to the regular rate because I would not bring them down It should be a basic expectation that they ask for these documents at check in and I should not have been further inconvenienced or treated like I was acting deceptively because of their oversight and lack of operational abilityThe final straw for us was we had dirty glasses, sheets and floor in our room Also, In advance I verified they had a shuttle service to the airport and they confirmed they did starting at 4 AM When we called to set that up they said it didn’t start until 5 AM making it totally purposeless for us to stay thereWe have been Marriott members for a long time and our family always appreciates the care and service we receive at every Marriott property This location, and specifically Matt the Operations Manager, is the exact opposite of the brand and quality Marriott works so hard to lead by example with This was a terrible start to our vacation and we will reconsider our use of Marriott going forward


Got a different room than booked, charged differently than they said over the phone, sinking bed, literally even just looking at it you can see it dip towards the middle, loudest neighbor possible Then we were charged a security deposit and that was never told to us, plus they stated it could take 39 days to come back As for a roof over our head and running water, it served it’s purpose but would not stay here again

Very impressed with the quality of the rooms and polite staff Loads of amenities From the coffee maker, to the fancy shampoo, the room is built to impress

We were staying for just one night but it was so great that I will definitely be booking here if I ever returnThe rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tons of storage options We’ll lit and good temperature controlsThe bed was very comfortable and the room was so clean It was such a wonderful change of pace compared to the hotels I have stayed in recently My only complaint would be the pillows were too soft All the stuffing moved to the other side of the pillow and I woke up with a sore neck – not the end of the worldMost impressive was the breakfast With the generous hours running from 5am to 9am, and equally as generous options, you will not be disappointedThis is definitely not your typical covid time breakfast Waffles, coffee, juice, Greek yogurt, fluffy scrambled eggs, sausages and sausage gravy, biscuits, cereal and fruit, danishes, toast, bagels The staff were bringing out food even at 8:30Check in and check out were a breeze and the staff were friendly and helpfulIf you’re in the area, check out this gem

Great place to stay at a reasonable price Helpful, smiling and just the right amount of friendly, staff The suite was large with two features I have never seen before in a hotel room

A window bench which my wife just loved and a center island with a sink Very handy! Breakfast was pretty typical for this type of hotel The only drawback was the walls are fairly thin It was not a problem as everyone quieted down at night

John Schafer

Spent a night here, and it was a clean, comfortable room Room size is small, but since we were just using it for a single night, that was not a concern for us They had a basic breakfast buffet in the morning (cereal, eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, toast, etc

), and they had access to a computer/printer to be able to print out boarding passes for our flight in the morning Very helpful young man at the front desk when we checked in, as well as when we checked out in the morning Will definitely return
