What a dive! This is the first time I have stayed at a La Quinta Inn and I was sorely disappointed by my experience. While conveniently located near the Mall of America and a mere 10 minute drive to the airport, this hotel is not worth consideration if what you want is a good night's rest before an early morning flight My husband and I chose this hotel for its proximity to both the Mall of America and the airport, and also for its unbelievable price of $89/night (priceline). Upon initial inspection, the rooms came across as clean albeit in need for major renovation. However, when we inspected the bathroom, we both agreed that the shower and tub were too filthy for our 4 year old to use. We noted grubby marks around the tub, as well as line of mold in the shower tiles. In addition, despite requesting a non-smoking room, the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke and made for a very uncomfortable overnight stay. In addition, our room was located next to some very noisy neighbors who felt the need to serenade each other at top volume at about 10 pm. While the hotel is not responsible for guest behavior, we found the staff members very unhelpful when we requested them to help us with our neighbors. We were told that the night manager could not leave her post at the front desk to investigate, as she was the only person available, and we would have to wait until the shuttle driver arrived to investigate. That did NOT happen and we had to endure the endless caterwauling deep into the night. Fortunately, the party appeared to dissipate sans staff assistance but since we had a 4:30 am wake-up call, it did not make for a restive night. To add to this, the morning manager was very rude and snappish when we told her that we were not assisted the previous night and blamed us for not calling the front desk. When I told her that we did, she promptly shut up and became defensive about the fact that she did not get the call. We then requested a feedback form to file a complaint and were promptly ignored. I would like to point out one bright point though: our shuttle driver on 9/13/2014 (in the afternoon) was very friendly and helpful... even to the point of encouraging us to call when we needed to be picked up at the Mall of America. I think its a pity he works with other unmotivated staff members. Overall, I would NOT recommend this facility to anybody. Even if you are a little short on cash and just need a place to stay, there are many other airport hotels that I feel would give better service than this place. I also think its a shame that there is a no-star rating available. Giving the single star is far too generous in my opinion.

I have stayed at this hotel before and location was a key factor. The ease of getting there and to any destination from there was super easy. I mapped how to get downtown and it was so effortless. I would recommend this location especially if going to the airport or the Mall of America.

"Sad Decaying Property in Need of Renovation"

Sadly this former Baymont that La Quinta has now had for 10 years continues to decline. The hotel is seriously filthy and in dire need of a complete renovation. The staff has become complacent and uncaring. I would rank this in the bottom 5% of La Quinta's properties. Unless you need this location take the other La Quinta by Hwy 100.

We are repeat customers. We stayed 7 days. We like La Quinta because we can bring our small dogs along at no additional charge. We have stayed at this La Quinta Inn Minneapolis Airport Bloomington several times in the past 4 years. It is conveniently located I-494 and Nicollet Ave. It is close to the Mall of America, Smith Park (for walking dogs, jogging, etc), WalMart, Target, and has a Culver's Frozen Custard restaurant in the parking lot. It also has a park-n-ride with a shuttle to the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. Our room, #1033, was clean and quiet. However, this room's bathroom needs new caulking around the shower base and attention to the wall near the shower and toilet, but overall, this room met our needs. The front staff was courteous helpful and friendly. There was adequate, safe parking nearby. The clerk who checked us out on Sept. 2nd was very pleasant and helpful in transferring our charges to the desired credit card. The breakfast bar was good, but not always ready on time. One day the biscuits and gravy were served cold. Another day, (Labor Day Weekend) they were still setting up breakfast 25 minutes past the opening time. And still another day, the breakfast coffee continued to be out after a half-hour, even after I had alerted the front desk. The other frustrating thing was that there were no lids for coffee making it impossible to take along in the car and tricky to take back to the room. The lids were missing during our entire stay of 7 days. All other La Quinta's we visited on this trip had lids. I know they can do better with their breakfast service. They have been very consistent in the past. It could have been the Labor Day Holiday and/or staff issues, however, this is a service industry and travelers DO notice these things. All things considered, we still like this hotel and will likely stay again, but we will keep an eye on the breakfast bar service in the future.

"Great 2 night stay!"

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during my first visit to the Mall of America. The hotel offers both airport and mall transportation, so it saved me from having to rent a car. The shuttle drivers were friendly and although they were late in picking up/dropping off, it was a fairly short delay (10-15 minutes). The hotel itself was in good condition - my room had 2 comfortable beds, a large bathroom and was completely clean. They offered complimentary breakfast and free wi-fi as well. All in all, a really pleasant stay!
