Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Bloomington / Airport / Mall of America
Travel Blogs from Bloomington
Normally we are running late to the airport. Like when we were going to Paris, we almost missed the plane, no seriously. They were paging us like crazy and we had to sprint to the gate.
Today though, we were on time but of course, the plane delayed. Why is it that when you're running late, the plane is early but when you're running on time, the plane is late? Go figure!!!!
From Minneapolis, we will fly to Chicago, then to Miami and after a 4 ...
... the cost for parking while there is a Vikings (football) game on if $25 while the Twins (baseball) is only $10. Guess baseball is a cheaper game to see all around.
Have gravitated to AmericInn Hotel & Suites which costs a little more than Super 8 or Motel 6 but they have a swimming pool and spa and much more comfortable/cleaner rooms.
After cooling off in the pool, I headed off ...

Just keep in mind there is a big time difference so some patience is needed. Also, if anyone knows me, I am a very sparatic responder/communicator. Sometimes I just want my space, sometimes I don't stop talking, either way, i will try my best.

Thank you for letting me share a little bit about myself and my faith with you today. When I return in August 2013 I hope to come back and share my experiences with you.
After spending over a week and not really going that far from our starting point, we have reached the big drive part of the trip. For the next little while we are staying in a place for the night, checking it out then moving on. Most the days now will be driving all day and getting in as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Bloomington / Airport / Mall of America
I just came back from a four day stay at the Hospitality Inn and Suites. I picked this hotel because it offered the best value of all the hotels close to Mall of America. This place has gotten mixed reviews here on TripAdvisor, I have mixed feelings about it myself so I will lay out a pro/con list.
Would definitely stay there again
I have stayed at this hotel twice now and have been impressed both times. The room was clean and inexpensive. The staff was helpful when we had questions. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.
Just came back from a four day stay at the Hospitality Inn & Suites. Although the price was good, the service wasn't. After the first night of our stay, we came back from a full day's shopping at the Mall of America to find that our room had not been cleaned. The best the front desk could offer was fresh towels as "the housekeeping staff left at 1 p.m."
Charge whatever they want!
I was grossly overcharged for my room and a the desk clerk was rude and arrogant. The price was almost double of what I saw on the internet. Seems to me this hotel charges whatever they want. The pool had so much chlorine, it made your eyes water just being in the pool area.
Myself, my wife, and my 4-year old son stayed 5 nights in this hotel (Sunday, August 8 thru Thursday, August 12) based on the incredible rate I got thru Expedia---, and I'm very happy with our stay.
Great Place to stay
I stayed at the Hospitality Inn for 4 days and experienced only the best service. They truely try to live up to the name. Rooms were clean every day and I am planning another stay soon.
The appearance of the hotel was okay, but the staff was dressed very sloppy and inefficient! We never received housekeeping - so our room was a mess. Rules not followed in the pool area AT ALL. Very dangerous...people partying in the pool area when we stayed drinking (out of glass bottles) and having pizza's delivered to the pool area. Very unprofessional - not worth the amount of money you will spend to stay there!
My husband, I, and our 2 1/2 year old son stayed at the Bloomington Hospitality Inn & Suites over Memorial Day weekend 2004. I had booked the room after an Internet search of hotels close to the Mall of America that were reasonably priced. I am still amazed that we were able to stay at this hotel over a very busy weekend for $53/night. Every room includes a microwave, frig, and vcr...all valuable amenities when traveling with a small child. The Interstates and Mall of America are easily accessible, and this is what we were looking for as our trip was planned around taking our son to Camp Snoopy. The hotel also has a good-sized indoor pool and hot tub that we enjoyed. There is also an Embers restaurant attached to the hotel, which we did not try, but it might be a perk for some travelers. Our only complaint was the fact that the shower was lukewarm at best. I'm not sure if this is a common occurance, or if it was just a fluke. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the budget-minded traveler!
A nice, friendly place to stay!
My husband and I stayed at the Hospitality Inn and Suites in April and were very pleased with the room and friendliness of the staff. We felt very safe and well cared for. We would definitely stay there again!
The Hospitality Inn and Suites, Bloomington, MN was inexpensive and offered convenient access to the Mall of America and the interstate (to Minneapolis and St. Paul). The HIS offers the budget family traveler a safe and clean alternative to more expensive hotels or the often questionable quality of other budget motels/inns/suites.
