There was some renovating going on, but the staff let me know and all was great as far as the building and the room. The Complimentary Breakfast however, left a lot to be desired. Luke-warm oatmeal, undercooked and greasy bacon were complimented by a nasty attempt at eggs. I didn't die, so it wasn't that bad. But it was far...

We have stayed here many times since my daughter lives next door and have never been disappointed. It is such a cool place for any railroad buff to stay, it originally was a railroad repair shop. Has a very pretty courtyard between hotel and another building that was also used trains.

Hotel has a very unique and interesting decor, built inside an historic train maintenance building. Very fun looking at the big wood beams, exterior brick with special. Hotel is quiet, rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast was served, which is always appreciated. Good value for the price. I would stay here in the future.

We didn't know what to expect. We waned someplace with a pool for the kids, and close to the museum and zoo. This place was perfect. We ended up getting a poolside room and the kids had a great time. They have a bar with a good selection of beers. The breakfast in the morning was really one of the...

I had to wait at the Front Desk for 10 minutes to start with because the Front Desk Clerk was also the Bartender and was getting ice from in back and making a drink for someone. Then we were checked into a room that...

My family and I stayed here for two nights. It is built in an old train repair building, which makes it even cooler. The staff was awesome, especially Wendy, the breakfast attendant. She was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast itself was one of the better ones we have had on trips. There was waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage and cereals...

Was looking for quick place to stay with a one day conference at Como Zoo & Conservatory. This place was the nearest. Price was a little high I thought for basic hotel, but the old depot building was pretty cool. Front staff person was fun and nice. Hotel room was pretty large with 2 queen beds. Couple lights didn't work...

I was in Minneapolis/St Paul for almost a week on one of my road trips. I am with the Best Western Rewards program so I stay with Best Western as much as possible. When looking at the hotels around the Twin Cities, Como Park was the only one where I could stay the whole week. I found out later that...

This hotel is the best we have experienced for being receptive to the needs of people with disabilities. We love the historical setting. All the staff, even the kitchen and cleaning staff, were friendly and helpful. We will certainly be repeat customers.
