Pros: I love the location and the fact that it had a cool history.
Cons: Cleanliness of the hallway carpet and getting some better quality pillows.
Location: Plenty of things to do nearby and lots of shopping and restaurants. The hotel gave us a comprehensive list of restaurants and we found it quite helpfu
The front desk staff was helpful and courteous. My daughter had difficulty printing so Ben took responsibility for getting the worksheets she needed printed. Another front desk staff member recommended a laundromat to me which turned out to be closeby and very clean. Everyone, with exception of the breakfast person, was friendly and courteous. The room was nice and setting very interesting. The hallway carpets were not too clean and the pillows were extremely small and lumpy.

Interesting Location

Posted 8-Feb-2015
Pros: Nice sized and clean room.
Cons: They could warn you about putting charges on your credit card "just in case". Staff could be friendly, they weren't.
Location: Close to Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. A must see if you haven't been. Snuffy's has excellent old fashioned drive-in food.
Hotel inside an old train building. Great fun idea. Continental breakfast was mediocre at best compared to other hotels.

Pros: Location atmosphere.
Cons: Training of morning staff
Check out desk clerk did not acknowledge us, did not ask how our stay was, nor did he say Thank-You. Breakfast was not fully ready until 6:20, sausages were cold.

Traditional outdated hotel

Posted 23-Dec-2014
The hotel is old and outdated. The chlorine smell is intense as you walk in the hotel. The ceiling is low. The personnel was very friendly and nice. Beds were OK. Stayed in it because of convenient location to Hamline University!!!

OK for the price.

Posted 9-Dec-2014
Pros: staff, location
Cons: heat, coffee
In a good location for navigating around St. Paul, Mall of America and Roseville. Disappointing aspect was that heat was not working properly in our room. The staff however, was sympathetic and brought us a space heater for first night. The problem was repaired on second day. Free breakfast bar was adequate; however coffee tasted like hot water. As I said, okay room for the price.

A clean place to stay

Posted 10-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel was very clean. However my room was small. It would have been pretty crowded for two or more people. The continental breakfast was very well put together. Overall, it was a fine place to stay for a night, but it is in a very off the beaten path location with the nearest restaurants being a few blocks away.

Not bad

This hotel was comfortable and clean enough. The room was a little dingy but not bad. Good price. I'd stay there again.

Our daughter attends Hamline University. Nice location for visiting and attending school related functions. Also close to Como Park, which we enjoy! Nice central location for what we like to do and attend in the cities. room was clean, staff was very friendly. Enjoyed having a beer at the bar during happy hour. Would recommend and will stay in the future. Our only complaint was the air was pretty dry in room.
